Alright, let’s get to it. I’ve already mentioned and written about it earlier in the week. The Deshuan Watson trade is still out there. Notice I didn’t say anything new has happened because it appears nothing new has happened. I’m just saying as we get closer to the trade deadline of Nov. 2nd, more is going to percolate.
I’m not here to get into what Miami should or shouldn’t do. I also have no idea what they’re actually going to do. I think only about 5ish people on the planet actually do and everyone else who is near either team in any capacity hears snippets of things and then runs with it. That’s my personal feelings on that and I think I’m right about that thought due to so many well-established journalists having several different takes on what is going to happen. We’ll find out within a week or so what happens.
But this really could be Tua Tagovailoa’s last game as a member of the Miami Dolphins. I know some love the idea of that and that’s fine if you do. I find it to be sucky because it means that a team drafted a quarterback 5th overall only to get rid of him after 13 starts while half of those starts he wasn’t anywhere near 100% healthy as a rookie but hey why should that matter when Justin Herbert did great as a rookie(easy Sern, maintain control)?
I thought Tua played well last week. I know that INT was horrid, though I really do think it was a miscommunication between him and the receiver because there’s not a world that exists where he underthrows a receiver by 25 yards without it being a communication issue. I thought the triumphant of coordinators did a decent job of letting Tua do his thing but still have training wheels on him for some dumb reason. Maybe they open it up a bit more and dare I say scheme up some routes that go 30 yards downfield? I think that would be useful especially when Jaylen Waddle, who is not Jarvis Landry by the way, can do that. But, I’m sure they have some hitches and slants that they have to make sure they get too.
