Well it's a good thing players don't run a team. Players only care about the short term, as they should. That's their job and that's why a team could never truly "tank". The players would never go along with it, but I really don't care what a player thinks or feels when it comes to building a team for a sustained period of time.One of my best friends was in the league for about 7 years across multiple teams, we always chat about the Dolphins games while we're out on the golf course. From the point, Fitzpatrick was replaced he thought it was going to be a way bigger issue in the locker room than people on the outside would think. By the end of the season, when the playoffs were on the line he told me he would personally be furious with the decision to keep playing Tua over Fitz and was certain that would cause a ton of frustration by the players.
It's always great to hear his POV on these things. It made me think this player may be feeling some sort of way about Tua potentially costing him a Playoff check or contract incentive.
