Josh McCown listed as No. 1 QB . . . for now

DAVIE - Per NFL rules the Dolphins released their first depth chart of the season for this week's exhibition opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but coach Tony Sparano said it could change by the afternoon practice.

For now, Josh McCown is listed as the No. 1 quarterback, followed by John Beck and rookie Chad Henne.

"The depth chart is something I know you guys will make a lot out of but I don't make much of it right now,'' Sparano said. "It's something we had to produce and put out there, so we put it our there. That depth chart you have in your hand won't be the same this afternoon or tomorrow. It's going to change every single day.''

When further pressed for the reason why McCown, a seven-year veteran, was listed over Beck, a second-year player, and Henne, Sparano stressed it had more to do with experience than with their performance so far. However, Beck has clearly struggled the most, with Henne improving daily (go Blue!). McCown has the edge over both simply because he has started 31 games in the league compared to Beck's four and Henne's none.

"The quarterback race was done by seniority,'' he said.

Beck will be the starter by the end of the preseason. Does that mean anything fantasy wise?? No :-b

Not to hijack, but I am more than a little surpirsed that the Phins{ didn't toss their hats in the Favre sweepstakes. He could have given them instant credibility while allowing Beck or Henne to grow into their roles.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

I'm sure Favre doesn't want to play for Miami and Miami doesn't need Favre. They aren't going to the playoffs w/Favre. They are rebuilding. The last thing they need to do is trade away picks to get a QB for one year when they could use this year to get their QB's experience.

I actually like McCown. He's a pretty good QB...if only he can land on a good team. He was prematurely yanked in Arizona by Dennis "If you wanna crown their..." Green in favor of King, even tho the team was winning. They promptly went on a losing streak, and McCown was put back in a few games later. Then there was the disaster in Oakland where no QB has a chance at succeeding last year.
