Post Pat Devlin struggles in shot for backup QB spot as Dolphins

Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

MIAMI GARDENS —

Pat Devlin, in perhaps a last-ditch effort to remain on Miami’s roster, struggled Thursday night to show the Dolphins why they should keep him as their third quarterback.

Coach Joe Philbin has said he would consider going into the regular season with just two quarterbacks — starter Ryan Tannehill and backup Matt Moore. ...

The 2013 preseason has been less kind to Devlin. He finished it Thursday’s game completing 39 of 67 passes for 418 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions.

The Dolphins, playing against New Orleans’ reserves, moved the ball inside the Saints’ 20-yard line five times in the first half but scored only one touchdown, settling twice for field goals.

Midway through the first quarter, Devlin threw an 8-yard touchdown reception to rookie tight end Dion Sims.

It went downhill from there. Later in the quarter Devlin overthrew tight end Michael Egnew in the end zone.

Early in the second quarter, the Dolphins couldn’t score when they had the ball 1st and goal on the Saints’ 8-yard line, including three attempts from the1-yard line. Devlin missed a wide open Sims on fourth down, throwing the ball low.

On Miami’s next drive, Devlin threw an interception from New Orleans’ 8-yard line.

In a halftime interview, Philbin didn’t criticize Devlin.

“He made some good throws, but … we’ve got to be more productive down in the red zone,” Philbin said. ...

We saw this last year form him. He could have won the game in the 4th but he threw a pick, thanks Delvin, but Bye bye.,

Yeah he did, it took him awhile to warm up. He is inconsistent. I believe he gets cut and if RT goes down, we sign a vet. Just my opinion.

it's funny, Henne and Devlin both went to high school in my area. Miami loves Eastern PA. LOL

Anyone else find it funny that we have a "Devlin looks great" and a "Devlin looks terrible" back to back?

I just watched the first half. I thought Devlin looked pretty decent with the 10 yard passes and threw it crisp and on a rope, but anything longer than that was off target and I was holding my breath. I thought he should have had better chemistry with these receivers as they are the ones that he practices with the most. The more he threw the better he seemed to look, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Dolphins tried to "upgrade" the #3 with a waiver cut or just go with 2 quarterbacks.

Hopefully, we don't make any comments during the regular season about our third string QB.

That would be a complete disaster. Tannehill is going to have a big year, I can feel it.
