Dolphins head coach Brian Flores publicly backs Tua Tagovailoa as 'our' quarterback

  Dolphins head coach Brian Flores publicly backs Tua Tagovailoa as 'our' quarterback Watson remains with the Texans but wants to be traded and is expected to be a healthy scratch each week of the season he's on Houston's roster.According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Flores declined to discuss Darlington’s story when speaking with reporters Wednesday but left little doubt about who is QB1 in his mind as he prepares for the regular-season opener at the New England Patriots on Sept. 12.

Eastern Tennessee State dominated Vanderbilt on Saturday night, and Commodores quarterback Ken Seals could have had an even rougher not if he didn’t catch a huge break from the officials.

ETSU defensive back Karon Delince took an interception 99 yards for a touchdown, but the score was called back. Delince was flagged for taunting, but the 15-yard penalty did not seem warranted.

The flag was either thrown because Delince raised his arm in the air or turned around and backpedaled into the end zone. Neither act seemed egregious enough to be penalized, let alone on a scoring play.

ETSU walked away with a 23-3 victory, so the call didn’t hurt team. Still, between that penalty and all the concern we have seen about the NFL’s new taunting rules, it’s clear that officials are getting a bit carried away.
