8 and 1 in the last 9 games and gets fired?

Does that make sense? I know the schedule was favorable the second half. But, Miami was playing decent football. Just no patience with Tua. Treated Fitzpatrick like dirt!

I guess there is an unlimited pot of players and coaches looking for a contract but this might be the least desired franchise to work for in the NFL?

I would take Herbert but that does not mean the dolphins can’t win games with Tua. Have to find the right pieces around Tua so it works. Mainly an O line that can protect him.

Joe Burrow was taken with the #1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Tua #5 and Justin #6.

Burrow is 25 years old with a career passer rating of 97.8 and of course, a Super Bowl appearance.

▪ What about this criticism that he cannot throw the ball downfield well enough? That’s out the window. He already has five completions of 40 yards or longer, three for touchdowns. Both of the late TD throws to Tyreek Hill traveled more than 40 air yards. Per Next Gen Stats, one of those passes traveled 55.5 air yards.

And on all throws that traveled at least 20 air yards this season, he’s 6 for 10 for 204 yards. Last season, he was 14 for 29 on such throws. So since the start of last season, Tagovailoa has completed 20 of 39 passes that have traveled at least 20 air yards. That 51.3 completion percentage is second best since the start of last season, behind only Justin Herbert (55.7 percent, 39 for 70).

Since the start of last season, Tua's completion % on throws of 20+ yards is second in the league, hopefully we can stop all the "Tua can't throw the deep ball" talk

No, Tua will likely never be as good as Herbert, but that's okay, he doesn't have to be as good as Herbert for his team to have success

He played a good game today. The team won and that is all that matters. So many qb's get ruined by idiot impatient owners. This was very close to happening to Tua.
Now Tua is adapting and the offense is changing to fit him.
