I believe if Tua is healthy enough to play he starts the season and the team never looks back.I think we’ll see Fitzpatrick start most of the season. Stats wise I’d say similar to last season, though perhaps less pass attempts because hopefully we’ll have a better running game. But his last year in Buffalo with Gailey he passed for similar numbers to last year. So I’d expect similar this season.
Could Tua start? Sure. Fitzpatrick is famous for going through hot and cold patches, so he of struggles sufficiently he could end up being benched for Tua.
Should Tua start? I’m not sure. A year to sit and learn while getting more healthy could be a good thing, then let him takeover year two. However, we’ve seen rookie quarterbacks make a big impact and if Tua is healthy and ready to play, then maybe he should play and let Fitzpatrick back him up.
It’s a tough decision to make. Mahomes sat all but the last game of his first season. Rodgers sat for a while behind Favre. So there’s precedent for sitting, but there’s more examples of quarterbacks starting or taking over during their first season. It wouldn’t surprise me if Tua is more likely to be the latter than the former unless Fitzpatrick can play to a good enough level for 16 games like he did with the Jets when they just missed out on a play off berth.
