Miami Dolphins Tua Tagovailoa throws 5 picks on first day, season is over!
By Brian Miller
The Miami Dolphins opened up more than their mandatory training camp session today, apparently, they opened Tua Tagovailoa to scrutiny.
Today you can cancel your season tickets, get your plane reservations canceled, and spend that extra money you set aside for the playoff tickets because the Miami Dolphins season is now over, officially on social media, but not really in real life.
Tua Tagovailoa threw five picks today and since today’s session isn’t over, well, it could go up. For those watching the sky fall around them consider this, the Dolphins are practicing in a monsoon. Literally, torrential rain fell on practice earlier today and the Dolphins pushed through with practice because there was no lightning. So how should you look at this? Look at it as the Dolphins didn’t wimp out and take the practice indoors.
While the weather subsided from monsoon to just buckets, Tagovailoa and Jacoby Brissett had their share of problems with the wet footballs but Tagovailoa did connect twice with Jaylen Waddle which is a great sign of things to come.
The reality is the Dolphins are on day one of an off-season workout with a quarterback who is running yet another new system on a day that is basically better suited for the alligators and other wildlife like real dolphins, than the Miami Dolphins.
Getting work in whether good or bad is always good and even today will provide an opportunity for learning. So is there really a reason to get upset? Of course not but while we poke a little fun at the doomsday naysayers, keep in mind the only thing today is doing for Tua is giving his detractors more ammunition to beat him down.
For the record, the season isn’t over and Tagovailoa isn’t a bust!
