1. This game decides Tua Tagovailoa’s future
It doesn’t even feel real to type that, but sadly, it’s the truth. Tua Tagovailoa is likely paying for his job in Miami on Sunday. Again, Tua Fans were happy with Tagovailoa’s performance, but he did not do enough to beat the Jaguars.
Fans selling themselves on his performance are selling themselves on average. That is fine though, they can do what they want, but Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross can as well.
And it’s clear Ross isn’t going to be okay with average in Miami anymore. You can have whatever opinion you want, but the Miami Dolphins may trade for Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.
Watson is currently under investigation for 22 counts of some form of sexual misconduct, and that should not be brushed over. However, the fact Miami is still trying to get Watson, who could be suspended or put on the exempt list, even though they have Tagovailoa, is telling.
You can try and spin it any other way you want it, but you’re just lying to yourself and not facing the facts. This is the biggest game of Tagovailoa’s career, and if he isn’t able to shine and show why he was the No. 5 overall pick, Miami may actually make the trade for Watson.
So essentially, Tagovailoa is playing for his job on Sunday.
