Dolphins to name Tua Tagovailoa starting QB
It's officially Tua Time in Miami. The Dolphins are passing the torch from Ryan Fitzpatrick to rookie Tua Tagovailoa, who will be named the team's starting quarterback. The news was first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter, and later confirmed ny NFL Network's Tom…This just in: pic.twitter.— Armando Salguero (@ArmandoSalguero)
Man, that's really sad. It feels like the Dolphins could have prepared him at the beginning of the season that this might happen. It sounds like there was no communication until Fitzpatrick was called with the news.
Let's be real,and the Dolphins are smart to get him on an NFL field as soon as possible. You don't draft a guy with the fifth overall pick just to let him sit on the bench. They need to see what they have in him, especially with a talented quarterback crop in this upcoming draft. But this is a rough way to handle the business of benching someone.
The tough part is Fitzpatrick is having a pretty outstanding season. He has completed 70.1 percent of his passes for 1,535 yards, with 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He's averaged 7.8 yards per attempt, has a passer rating of 95.0 and his QBR of 79.6 ranks seventh in the NFL. The Dolphins are also 3-3 and one game back of the Bills for first place in the AFC East.
