David Fales outperformed Brock Osweiler during the first week of the preseason against the Buccaneers. Then during the second preseason game against the Panthers, Osweiler was the better of the two quarterbacks.

“I guess what I would say to that is every day in the National Football League is a competition,” Osweiler said on Sunday. “Regardless of starters, backups, whatever. You’re always competing to be your best and to compete for a starting job. As far as competing for the backup job, that’s something I really don’t think about. I just think about trying to be just the best player I can be each and every day.]]> 5276348 Sun, 19 Aug 2018 20:51:01 EDT Dolphins Wire

But despite their stagnant offense, head coach Adam Gase didn’t appear too worried about his backup situation.

“I think there have been times when they’ve both played well,” Gase said after the game. “We’ve gotten through practice. We watch them every day. I know what’s expected in the game. When you’re in there with the starters it looks different – guys are breaking free. It’s tough. There are different groups and it can be challenging as quarterback. Their timing is not the same. That’s where they’ve got to fight through that and try to get completions and put the ball in the end zone.]]> 5275098 Sat, 18 Aug 2018 15:27:01 EDT Dolphins Wire

We want him to help us, I know he can help us; but we have to know what we’re doing when we’re on the field, especially in pass protection. I think he’s picked it up.
