Agree. He's a solid quarterback, who has the edge in durability over both Tua and Burrow.Not exactly fair to blame Justin here. He’s leading a top 10 offense with almost no help. I mean Austin Eckler has Eddie Lacy-esque speed at this point.
Strange take.He would have at least 5 or 6 more wins if Flores had a clue when it came to hiring a competent OC and offensive coaching staff.
So is this inviting discord or just a bold fact?
Is this an I told you so?
Grier won the draft with the Tua pick
I’m fine with only counting the games where Tua had a strong hand in whether the Dolphins won or lost. So take away that Jets game (but still count the Baltimore game). However you should also omit the Bills and Bengals games where Tua was knocked out in the 1st Q. So, 29-14 sounds right.As a starter Tua is 28-16. They have given him credit for 2 other games he played in.
One against the Jets in which he played last series in a game decided. Another he led a second half comeback after Brissett was ineffective.
The biggest improvement is the coaching staff. No coaches of note wanted to work for Flores.Strange take.
Tua was 13-8 under Flores when Tua played with Waddle, Phillips, and Holland for one year in which they were all rookies.
And Tua didn’t have Cheetah, Mostert, Achane, Williams, Armstead, Chubb, Long, Elliot, Kohou, or Ramsey at all.
That record also included Tua playing when he was not fully recovered from a hip injury, ribs, and a middle finger on his throwing hand.
Under McDaniel Tua is 15-8 with what is clearly a much improved roster and it’s not close.
What unit has not significantly improved from when Flores was coach other than Sanders decline?
The Legend of how terrible of a coach Flores was just keeps growing.
