This is being echoed all over the place and understand why. Many have doubts about if Tua Tagovailoa is the future at quarterback for the Miami Dolphins. I don’t know if he is but I now know that I will know by the end of the season.
With all of these moves, with all of the offensive talent brought in, there is no excuse for Tua not to play well besides not being a good quarterback. I think he would tell you the same thing if you can catch him between drills at Perform. It’s a fair amount of pressure but would you want it any other way? Actually, I Imagine he would rather have zero pressure. I know I like when there’s no pressure and everything is easy but you get my point. The pressure is on and it’s put up or shut up time.
Tua will either flounder and struggle to get the ball to Hill, Waddle, Gesicki, and the rest of the guys on offense, and Miami will use those two 1st rounders that they still have on another quarterback whether it’s a trade, or in next year’s draft or perhaps someone pops up in free agency.
Or, Tua rises like the Phoenix and uses his quick release and pinpoint accuracy and is able to get the ball to these guys wherever they are on the field. You’re going to hear about how he needs to get the ball downfield. I hope his hip completely healed and he gets into some of those 71 yard throws we saw him to Bowden Jr. last week. That would help.
I’m hoping he steps up his game, learns Mike McDaniel’s new offense, and shuts everyone up who has doubted him. I want that to happen. I can’t tell you if it will though I imagine some of you will act like you do have a crystal ball and can see into the future if the season works out or not and will let me know about it. Fine with me. I root for the Dolphins thus I root for Tua Tagovailoa. If you’re a fan of the Dolphins, you should too unless you’re some kind of weirdo.
