I like to write articles on all 32 NFL teams heading into training camp. One portion of the article includes training camp battles. The Miami Dolphins have the best training camp battle in recent memory. Who will start at quarterback? Is it Ryan Fitzpatrick’s job to lose or should Josh Rosen be given the reigns right away? It’s fascinating. I don’t even know who gives the Dolphins the best chance to win. I’m not sure Miami knows the answer to that question yet either.

That’s why the Dolphins are going with an open competition at quarterback. It’s any mans race to win. I’m not sure the Dolphins even care who wins after this response from head coach, Brian Flores:

“If he wins the competition, absolutely I’m good with that,” Flores said, via Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “I think that would be what’s best for the team and best for the Miami Dolphins. . . . That would be the same at all positions. We’re going to play the players we feel that are going to win us football games.”

“Thankfully, we get to evaluate him (Rosen) every day in practice,” Flores said, smiling.

Ryan Fitzpatrick is the definition of inconsistent. One week he looks like a first ballot hall of famer. The next week he looks like a 3rd string backup who should be out of the league. In 8 games a year ago, Fitzpatrick threw 17 touchdowns. He also went 2-5 as a starter. It was the first time since 2014 he completed over 60 percent of his throws.

Then we have Josh Rosen who was terrible as a rookie but was the 10th overall pick for a reason. Rosen went 3-10 as a starter and Arizona wound up with the first overall pick. That led to Rosen’s demise, of course. 11 touchdowns and 14 picks is nothing to write home about but in fairness, Rosen was stuck in an awful situation in Arizona. Bad news… Miami isn’t much better.
