Dolphins has not gone into great detail or detail on his decision to reward midfielder Ryan Fitzpatrick for a winning pair against 49ers and Jets with a 67-17 total score by handing him over to Tua Tagovailoa. On Fridays PFT PMCharean Williams gives an interesting thought: Maybe the transition is always done in the week of goodbye.
The initial schedule made Miami̵7;s goodbye to the gap between a pair of Jets games. Broncos-Patriots’ intricate reformation took the holiday week to two weeks. It also puts the Rams on the other side of the break.
It was not ideal for Tua to get his first career start when Aaron Donald was short of breath on the fifth overall pick of the draft. With three lower body injuries over three seasons in Alabama and a lot of Tua’s shots at university level, he (and the rest of us) can instantly know if he can hold up. to the NFL’s physical requirements or not.
Even so, with no offseason and no preseason games and generally a very different year, it’s entirely possible Dolphins made a strategic decision before the season started that two-week hiatus. annual will become the starting point for Tua. This strategy could become the product of an internal negotiation between those who argued for Tua jobs from Week One and those who like to wait, given the unusual 2020 situation.
It would be naive to assume that owner’s preferences don’t affect Tua’s timetable, especially since many around the tournament believe owner Stephen Ross wants to appear from the 2020 draft. with a franchise midfielder. Given that Cincinnati refused all openly with the aim of giving Miami a crack with Joe Burrow, Tua became the redundant.
With Burrow and the guy Dolphins overcame – Chargers midfielder Justin Herbert – looks great so far, there are even more reasons to go with Tua right now, regardless of every dynamics Fitzpatrick is at. build.
Of course, it’s possible that coach Brian Flores made the decision based on all he saw during training and meetings that Tua gave them a better chance to build a 3-3 start for Season. Last year, when the franchise’s enduring interests showed Josh Rosen had a chance to expand to prove he could be the franchise’s defender, Flores was quick to reverse course, opting for Fitzpatrick Be the guy because Fitzpatrick gave the team a better chance of winning.
The fact that 11 days since the news of Tua’s takeover has not included any reports of player dissatisfaction with this decision suggests that veterans who like to win now do not believe The transition to the rookie will affect that goal. Coupled with public praise from players like defensive midfielder Shaq Lawson and tight winger Mike Gesicki, this shows they are all in the game – unless, of course, Flores has taken full control. control any and all possible dissenting voices in the dressing room, like Flores’ Counselor in New England.
Whatever the reason for the change, it’ll be hard to get back to Fitzpatrick if Tua gets stuck. This seems like a total effort to figure out what Tua can do.
There is another reason to do that: Dolphins held Houston’s first round selection in the 2021 draft and at 1-6 Houston was competing for a top-five pick. Miami may be in a key position to draft another midfielder franchise in April. To best know whether to take or surpass a guy like Trevor Lawrence or Justin Fields or not, the Dolphins first need to know if they have landed a goalkeeper in Tua.
That process starts on Sunday.
