Broncos Training Camp 2012: Peyton Manning Outshined By David Garrard

According to's Peter King, the Miami Dolphins quarterback situation may in fact best that of even the Denver Broncos'. King, reporting from the Dolphins training camp, says that QB David Garrard -- himself coming back from a missed season due to injury -- looked like a better signal caller than QB Peyton Manning recently did:

For one day anyway, David Garrard sure looks like the starting quarterback. Upstairs in the press area watching practice, traveling partner Neil Hornsby made a list of the top quarterback performances we'd seen on our (so far) eight-camp trip. ... But the more I thought of it, the more I thought Garrard should be no lower than [the top four] -- ahead of Manning.

Garrard, 34, is in his first season since being released by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the preseason of 2011. Spending 5 seasons as the Jags top starter, 2006 through 2010, Garrard compiled 14,195 passing yards with an 87.0 quarterback rating. Manning, meanwhile, had passed for 21,639 yards with a 96.9 rating with the Indianapolis Colts.
