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.

    • And you got beat by Florida International and Louisiana Tech last year......    But, I mean, The U does have the highest paid players. From the Pell Grant fraud, to Shapiro handing out cash and cars, I would hope they put more in the NFL than most teams. Add on the hidden drug test to keep players eligible...    Not sure why Miami's history of NFL draft picks is relevant in general, or has any bearing on why you're football takes are any better than anyone else?
    • Another reason it doesn’t bother me if the Colts don’t make the playoffs is they’ll get shredded by the Chiefs. That goes for the rest of the AFC.
    • I get they're from one of the biggest TV markets in the country, but you knew that game was going to be a non-competitive snoozefest before it even started. I generally watch every Sunday Night game available, but I can tell you that both Sunday Night games that I largely tuned out of involved Packers-Bears contests (I wanna say there was a game in 2013 or 2014 where the Packers dropped 50+ on the Bears on Sunday Night and you could feel it was going to happen before the game even started).
    • I apologize for today guys. At least you whipped them the first time you played them in Tennessee but lost at home. I have a feeling the Titans are going to whip us when we see them just after Christmas.
    • Question for you and those who LOL with your post. How long have you been following football to ask a juvenile question? Is that even a question to ponder?   I'f I go through the list of South Florida talent, we would need to start a separate website, yes website never mind thread.   Coaches along: Jimmy Johnson, Dave Wanstedt, Pagano, just to name a few. Lets not start with players. On this current team, players not named Marlon Mack or TY Hilton, Anthony Walker, Jacoby Brissett, Al Qudin Muhammad, Xavier Rhodes (Norland High School is less than 20 mins away).   Ever heard of a guy named Edgerrin James? Ask Peyton Manning and Jim Irsey who is Edgerrin James? LOL (as the legend has it, Edgerrin was bigger, and faster than Sequon Barkley. Just to make a long story short)   I actually take offense to your question. But to no avail, here is your answer: The Hurricanes hold the record for most players selected in the first round in a single draft (6, in 2004), most first-round draft picks in a two-year period (10, from 2003 to 2004), most first-round draft picks in a three-year period (15, from 2002 through 2004), and most first-round picks in a four-year period (19, from 2001 through 2004). As of the 2015 NFL season, UM has 45 players on NFL rosters, including players on NFL Practice Squads and Injured Reserves and not including current Free Agents, which is the most out of any NCAA program in the nation. As of the 2016 NFL Draft, Miami now has had at least one NFL draft pick in every draft since 1975, each of the last 42 NFL drafts, one of the longest streaks among FBS programs. The Hurricanes once had a streak of 149 consecutive regular season weeks where a former Hurricane scored a touchdown in an NFL game; the streak started in Week 15 of the 2002 NFL regular season and ended in Week 11 of the 2011 season.During the streak, 33 different former Hurricanes scored touchdowns and a total of 661 touchdowns were scored. From the 2001 Miami Hurricanes football team alone, 42 players went on to be drafted into the NFL from (2002-2006), including 17 1st round picks. The Hurricanes have had at least one former player make the Pro Bowl every season since 1985, 31 years in a row.
