Two quarterbacks are on the move Monday as trading season in the National Football League is well underway.
For the first time in both of their careers, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill and head coach Joe Philbin picked up an NFL victory Sunday. The victory marked a return to the running game the Fins had avoided and a solid defensive effort against the Oakland Raiders.
Reggie Bush happily hurled the ball into the stands as he skipped across the end zone grass, then matched the crowd’s cheers with a scream of his own.
The Miami Dolphins are looking to rebound after losing in Week 1 to a good Houston Texans by trying to knock off the Oakland Raiders. The Dolphins will be playing for the first time in front of a home crowd, which will be the home debut of rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Perhaps Ryan Tannehill will fare better at home. Last Sunday, in his debut as the starting quarterback for the Dolphins, he faltered on the road, passing for 219 yards with three interceptions and no touchdowns.
After disastrous season openers, the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins came away echoing the same sentiment: We’ve got to do a better job.

Dolphins fans were clamoring for the team to trade for Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer in the preseason. Fins management explored it and decided against it and now we know why.
Miami Dolphins fans hoping to see Carson Palmer suit up for the Fins can put those hopes to bed. Cincinnati Bengals owner Mike Brown said Tuesday that Palmer would play for the Bengals or he’d retire and play for no one.
Ask anyone who’s watched the Miami Dolphins for the last 12 years what they want most and almost all of them will say a solid, long-term quarterback. Unrestricted free agency should start this week, and there are some quarterbacks the Dolphins might be interested in.
