We knew it would only be a matter of time before a certain rookie out of Alabama would get his chance to shine….
In a little bit of a surprising move the Miami Dolphins have benched Ryan Fitzpatrick and have named Tua Tagovailoa the starting QB.
The Dolphins are 3-3 under Fitz and he has played pretty well in my opinion. Not sure why they are making the move now considering last week was the first game action that Tua saw. It came in garbage time and he didn’t really do much.
I get trying to get the rookie some playing time in meaningful games but why not ride Fitzmagic until he proves he can’t do it. Either way I’m sure Dolphins fans are pumped to see him and I’ll be honest I’m interested to see what he can do at the NFL Level.
The Dolphins have a bye this week before taking on the Rams in week 8. Tua will have to try and avoid getting eaten alive by Aaron Donald in his first start and that doesn’t sound fun.
