Backup quarterback Tyler Thigpen has demonstrated he can be a pretty good NFL quarterback when given the opportunity.
Imagine what might happen now that he’s actually getting some coaching at the position.
Thigpen, who completed 54.8 percent of his passes and threw 18 touchdown passes as opposed to 12 interceptions while starting 11 games for Kansas City in 2008, said the Dolphins’ David Lee is the first real quarterback coach he’s had in his career.
“When I came in last year, right from the first day I came out to practice, coach Lee was like, Have you ever gotten any coaching from a quarterback coach?” Thigpen said Friday morning while warming up for a round of golf as part of Fins Weekend at Fairmont Turnberry Isle in Aventura.
“He was telling me I had so much more to work on in regard to my fundamentals. When I came in at midseason last year he didn’t have time to work with me. So he’d come over before practices and say, ‘Hey, work on this today.’ So I had to learn on the fly.
“So when you’ve got bad habits, and you don’t get a whole lot of time to practice them, you’re going to continue to revert back to those habits. But I’ve had time this offseason to work on my fundamentals each and every day I’ve been out there, so it’s helped me out a lot.”
