I think the Dolphins should have drafted Brees years ago. They should have drafted Aaron Rogers and they should have traded up to draft Watson or Mahomes. There are plenty of players the Dolphins should have drafted over the years which they didn’t. Yet the reality is the Dolphins drafted Tua and not Herbert and Tua will be the Dolphins QB in 2021 and hopefully for years to come.Sound like a whole lot of what if's. Still think we should have took Herbert.
I think the departure of Gailey really diminishes the ability of Fitz to elevate his play like he did last season. He also creates a super comfortable safety blanket for pulling Tua (if he is here), which may further delay the team’s ability to determine if Tua is truly the answer at the position.
If the teams stays with Tua as they have stated they will, I would prefer another rookie with upside to back him up. If Tua isn’t the answer, at least we can hope that the other prospect develops. If neither pan out, maybe we get another high pick and take a shot at QB again.
I agree. What I have posted was simply my preference. That said, the Dolphins are definitely in a unique position. I can’t recall another team having the season they have had and still have the draft picks they have.A few of us have noted team's don't run with a 2nd yr QB and a rookie. May be a one off, but rare. My reading of Flo is he'll want a vet. That means TT, vet, PS QB. Doesn't sound like a rookie backup
Indeed this is going to be a long off season but in the end, Tua will be our starter and I just hope the FO get him the help he need with skill position players.
No reason to post paragraphs to back, just yep!I have been somewhat sour on our QB situation all season, felt like Tua should have rolled from day one or have stuck with Fitz when he got hot mid season. Now that its over, and there's been time to digest it all I think the healthiest thing for Tua's development is having Fitz as his backup next year. Tua wouldn't heap praise on Fitz like he does just because they play for the same NFL team. There is some actual mentoring that is happening. If Fitz can sprinkle his magic dust on Tua he will be outdoing Josh Allen's completion percentage in his year 3. I really believe that. I think you could offer him 1 year 5 million and he would probably take it. I don't think drafting a QB is a good call, which I have seen bounced around on here. I don't think trading Tua is a good call either. I feel like this year Fitz fully accepted the backup role in stride and even got another start down the stretch.
Where would Fitz theoretically leave to be a starter? What other teams would roll with him going into 2021? I don't really know. If he stays on with Miami he will likely get into some games, even if its just late game because we are torching teams, and from week 13 on since we will be 12-0 next year at that point.
