Tua named Dolphins starter going into bye week


Recommended Posts

I don't know if the timing is right yet, with the roll the dolphins are on now

I say if it ain't broke don't try to fix it yet. Tua will end up getting the starting role, but for now like in Vegas they should let it roll

With Fitzpatrick not stinking the joint up, and with some pressure to start Tagovailoa alleviated by his recovery from injury, they have to have a lot of confidence in him to make this move. Might have to catch a few Miami games on porpoise to see how it pans out. 

 

Welcome to the NFL.. have you met Aaron yet?

"The manner in which the Dolphins have handled Tagovailoa’s first year in the NFL ― bringing him along slowly rather than thrusting him immediately into action ― has drawn praise from across the NFL."

 

“They should write an NFL self-help book on how to handle a rookie quarterback, and (Dolphins head coach) Brian Flores should author it,” said Gil Brandt, the Hall of Fame front office executive who spent nearly 30 years with the Dallas Cowboys.

 

Ryan Fitzpatrick, Miami’s starting quarterback for the team’s first six games, was also lauded for his handling of the situation.

 

“There’s not a better QB to learn from and grow under than Ryan Fitzpatrick,” wrote Schefter on social media. “There’s also not a better QB to helping out any QB who replaced him.”

 

Flores was not under pressure to bring Tua in before he was deemed ready. After a bizarre NFL preseason, Flores must feel Tagovailoa is now ready to be initiated as the Dolphins franchise QB.

Seems questionable considering how successful Fitzpatrick has been so far. Like they literally dominated in their last game and they bench him? Hope this doesn't ruin Gaskin in fantasy...

If it ain't broke don't fix it. Schedule - Rams, Cards, Chargers, Broncos, Jets, Bengals, Chiefs, Pats, Raiders, Bills.

That’s a tough schedule, but not impossible. Imagine what will happen if Tua beats the Patriots.

I'm gonna say, bad timing, and bad move. Fitz was playing well, and Miami's OL is still pretty bad. Upgrade the OL again in the offseason, and start Tua next season. If he gets hurt, someone will lose their job.

 

And after thumping both the 49ers and the jumps? The only multiple score loss they've had was week 1. 

 

I'd happily take Fitz as a backup next year.

It shouldn't be so heartbreaking for him since he and the rest of the universe knew he was just a stop gap till Tua was ready. If dolphins are going anywhere this year or future Tua will be the one taking them. 

 

I personally think it was a good move. At the very least Tua will gain invaluable experience going into 2021.

I feel bad for Fitz honestly. Was doing well for what they have. Gotta believe this was the plan all along though. Make sure Tua was fully healed up and able to go and ride the Fitz train until it’s time.

    • You don't think BBs record vs Rookie QBs should be factored in?
    • I am not sure about that offensively, I mean Henry almost always comes out on 3rd and long, it's just that we didn't get them in that down Sunday.  They didn't even have that many 3rd and shorts.   KC only has 2 players who play all the time and that is who you mentioned, Kelce (the best TE in the game) and Hill (possibly the best lateral quickness/pure speed combo) in football.  The both play just less than 90% of snaps.  But the rookie RB plays less than half of the snaps, and I am sure that surprises you.  The rest of the WR corps play betweeon 1/3 and 2/3 of snaps.   Here is a link if you want to look at snap counts.  https://subscribers.footballguys.com/teams/teampage-kan-6.php   It might seem that other teams are different than us in this regard, but they really aren't.     I bet you would be surprised that Henry only takes 65% of the snaps.  Brown and Davis average about 80% when healthy.   The league utilizes all kinds of specialized personnel all the time.    All teams pretty much have different personnel groupings that they utilize a lot.  Belechik probably started this trend.  NE certainly made it's money switching players in and out depending on the situation.  
    • I read that he was brought in to be their starting RT.  I think he might have gotten hurt but not 100% sure.  Not sure he is still starting.
    • As a team, we live and die by the choices we make. Sometimes the best coaches are not always popular or easy to get along with.
    • Haeg went to Tampa on a one year 2.3/3.3M contract.  IIRC, he was offered more money than here.  According to PFF, he's played 93 snaps, hasn't given up a sack and has one penalty, but his PFF score is somehow only 51.1.  He's listed as a T everywhere I see but might be playing G.
