There is no question that the biggest concern is the offensive line but what about Tua Tagovailoa’s ability to lead the Miami Dolphins?

Tyreek Hill has had nothing but good things to say about his new quarterback. In Hills’ opinion, Tua is more accurate than Patrick Mahomes, he said as much on his podcast last week. He also said that Tua has the arm strength to throw the deep ball.

That’s great but can Tua take the next big leap in his career and lead this offense? That question will be the most scrutinized this entire off-season and throughout the season. More than the questions about the offensive line.

Tua has to produce this year. He doesn’t need to win the Super Bowl and he may not get this team to the playoffs. There are a lot of other reasons that can happen but statistically, Tua has to show that he is a franchise quarterback and can be “the” guy in Miami.

There is no Deshaun Watson standing behind him as a lurking shadow but there are whisps of Tom Brady. A very good year from Tua would put those to rest as well.

Tua, for the first time in his NFL career, has the support of his coaches and has the talent surrounding him that he hasn’t had before. Consider these two very different starting rosters.


  • Myles Gaskin
  • Albert Wilson
  • Jaylen Waddle
  • DeVante Parker
  • Mack Hollins
  • Mike Gesicki
  • Preston Williams
  • Will Fuller


  • Raheem Mostert
  • Chase Edmunds
  • Myles Gaskin
  • Tyreek Hill
  • Cedrick Wilson, Jr.
  • Mike Gesicki
  • Jaylen Waddle

The talent level has improved considerably and most of those in 2021 were injured throughout the year. The excuses for Tua are no longer viable and that means that 2022 has to be better.
