Something over the last month or longer ago has made the Miami Dolphins run away from QB Ryan Fitzpatrick like the plague and hand the reigns to Tua Tagovailoa!
After just 3 plays in his NFL debut Tua is dubbed the starter for this Sunday’s game against The LA Rams.
No one really knows but something has to be going on to make such an abrupt switch.
Teams normally give a player more and more time till making a switch. This abruptness is unheard of!
Early today Dolphins head coach Brian Flores all but guaranteed Fitzpatrick leaving South Beach via being traded:
In his article Flores gives a weird response to the question he mentions asking him. Here it is:
What jumped at me at 1st is why is he mentioning he Rams? The Dolphins next opponent…
2nd Why the caliber of opponent the Rams are?
This is a clear sign he knows Fitzpatrick is being traded but wants Chris Grier to leak that news.
So I must ask, What on earth has scared the Dolphins into such a unprecedented and abrupt QB switch and into trading Fitzpatrick?
One answer may be they want Fitzpatrick to continue starting games knowing this is his last year before retirement(Its believed he will retire this next offseason).
Another could be Fitzpatrick’s poor play despite the back to back blow out wins over the 49ers and Jets.
What ever it is it scared the Dolphins so much the Front office ordered Flores to make the move.
That makes me think its more a draft capitol move instead of losing him in to retirement for nothing. They want the draft pick(s) he could net them.
Thus they want a few Tua starts before making said trade to confirm Tua can do this.
On Tua’s side we know he has played very well in practice and looked fantastic in his game sealing drive 8 days ago.
Tua has the full confidence of every player on the Dolphins roster including Ryan Fitzpatrick. They aren’t worried at all.
For the coaches to make this moves speaks volumes of how the coaches and trainers think off him. VOLUMES!
I am fully confident in Tua as well. This is the move all Dolphins fans have ben waiting for.
So as Dolphins fans look forward as excited as can be they will continue to wonder what scared the Dolphins front office so much to force this unprecedented abrupt move.
