This one may make some Tua Stans or TuAnon members angry, but I just tell it how I see it. Tua Tagovailoa and Sam Bradford both were not great leaders. I got destroyed the first day of Training Camp for pointing out that I would have liked to see Tagovailoa be there first since he is the quarterback and leader of the team.
People told me that stuff does not matter, and I am just nitpicking. Well, whether you want to believe it or not, I was told privately by multiple people that there were some unhappy members of the Miami Dolphins too. They would have also liked to see Tagovailoa take more of a leadership role and be the first guy in on Day 1.
Regardless, it is what it is, and it put up a red flag for me. Then Tagovailoa was not voted a captain, and make whatever conspiracy theory you want; that is another red flag for Tagovailoa’s leadership qualities.
Bradford was never a vocal leader, and he was never the guy who brought his team together. He may have been voted a captain, but you could see he was not his team leader. Then when he was on the Philadelphia Eagles, there were questions about his leadership in the media from players and sources on the team, which is exactly what has happened with Tagovailoa too.
You can think what you want, but where there is smoke, there is fire. It could be possible that the situation they are in makes it difficult to be the leaders they want to be, but they are very similar in leadership style, which is not much leadership at all.
