Is Tua an option? Appears to be trouble in paradise...


Recommended Posts

I can't imagine the Dolphins moving on... they aren't drafting a QB in the 1st ... Tua didn't light the world on fire but there weren't expectations he would with that team. It isn't like they are in position to draft Lawrence either.

Players thought Mahomes was trash too his first year. 

We’ll see.

They have a point about his athleticism and arm strength. This is why guys like Trask aren’t going anywhere. That stuff really matters these days.

I kept trying to tell people this.  The Dolphins are NOT sold on Tua.  Go watch his tape.  He did NOT look very good.  His arm was questionable, his mechanics were shaky and his decision making slow.  I want Tua to succeed simply because I like watching good QB play across the league as a whole, but it's far from a given at this point.

The 'Phins don't need to draft Lawrence.  They are in a position to take one of the two QB's that follows Lawrence.  Yes, they have other needs.  WR is a glaring need.  But I can understand why they might go QB if they believe Tua isn't going to cut it.  He's not on franchise money.

I don't understand why people think it is so crazy that an organization could use 2 1st round picks on QBs in a short period of time.

There isn't a team in the league that wouldn't happily give up 2 first for a franchise QB.

You are basically giving yourself 2 chances for finding a QB.

If one is bad, and the other one is good, you are happy.

If they are both are good, you trade one, you are happy.

If they both are terrible, then you are still looking for a QB.

If any of these reports are true, then it sounds like the Dolphins should look at QB this year.

Which also tells you how much good coaching matters. Andy Reid has pretty much made every qb he’s had look good. 

Yeah. He said he came back to the second training camp a completely different qb. It’s why I want Lance to sit for most of the year if we draft him.

I saw the Dolphins play three times and he was horrible to bad in each game. I hoped that Grier's (Dolphins GM) declaration that Tua was their starting would mean that they would not draft a QB in the upcoming draft. However, I am still not completely convinced that the Dolphins will not draft a QB in the first round. I am guessing that Grier was responsible for the pick . Tua was that bad. 

Herbert is clearly the better QB and Miami chose Tua ahead of him. Grier may be staking his tenure in Miami on Tua -  especially if he doubles down on the pick by passing on a QB this season.

I would not want him in Carolina. That damn WFT win continues to come back to haunt this franchise.

give it context

when?

Tua has actually played regular season games

Tyreek said it in an interview. Kelce disputes that claim though but said Mahomes had to transition from “just a regular gun slinger”.

I wanted Tua last year but I admit I was big time wrong. I thought he was a much better prospect than Herbert and I couldn't have been more off the mark. I was not impressed at all by Tua's play this year.

I agree and basically said the same thing a week ago. 
 

Miami has a decent team and the only reason they have the 3rd pick is because of Houston. They’re most likely not going to be picking this high again anytime soon. This team should’ve been in the playoffs. Tua was really bad against Denver who was very beatable.
 

The Cardinals took Kyler after taking Rosen the year before. Time and time again we see organizations unwilling to admit to mistakes and it just hurts them in the long run. The Cardinals immediately admitted to theirs and it seems to have paid off. 
 

I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest if Miami takes a QB. I also wouldn’t be surprised if Watson ultimately ends up in Miami either. They have the draft capital to pull it off.

    • Bridges isn't a top 150 player in the league, based on pure math that makes him a JAG.  And as I initially said, I like GH, don't mind his base salary. I thought it was stupid to add 9 mill to the cap in for 3 years just to acquire him. He is looking like one of the best FA's.. But that only illustrates that Charlotte isn't a destination as his only real competition GH need to pass is Al Jefferson for all time best FA. Teams like the Hornets need to get lucky in the lottery and can't whiff on 1st round picks if they want to be upper echelon teams. Ball is the 1st step.   
    • I would rather sign a different, cheaper veteran if that is the route we decided to take. We can probably get a vet on a deal less than half what Teddy would be in 2021. Even with the dead cap hit, if we can get someone to take him in a trade(even if we have to give up a draft pick) we would have a big chunk of money to roll towards 2022 cap or we could use it to help us fill out that OL(or some other need position) in free agency.  The more I look at the scenarios, the more convinced I am we need to trade Teddy away to get out of that that deal, even if it means giving up draft capital to do it. When it was signed, I didn't realize how incredibly bad that it would look in hindsight. All of my assumptions with the deal were that Teddy would be a ho-hum NFL starter, not that he would prove to be a backup caliber player. 
    • I certainly think he can be.  I think in today's NFL your success has much more to do with the coaching than it used to.  I think we have good coaching on this team, and I think that coaching is going to improve as they get settled into the pros.  I think our coaching staff, assuming we draft him, is what will take him from having star potential to actually being a star.
