A short time ago, Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores met with the media ahead of Sunday’s matchup vs the Jacksonville Jaguars. Here, he announced that the team’s starting quarterback “assuming everything goes well in practice today” would be Tua Tagovailoa.

This comes as no surprise as QB1 was practicing all week. The only thing left for the Dolphins to do is officially activate him to the 53-man roster. Which again, if everything goes as expected, should come within the next 24 hours.
Tagovailoa hasn’t suited up for the Dolphins since a blindside hit knocked him out of Miami’s week two matchup vs the Bills. And since losing Miami’s starting quarterback, the team has gone a disappointing 0-4. He now comes back with Miami’s season in jeopardy and a must-win game (for lack of a better word) vs the winless Jaguars and Trevor Lawrence.

The team hopes Tua will spark an offense that currently ranks 31st in points per game (15.8), 30th in passing yards (191.4), and dead last in running the football. (70.4)
The time is now for Tagovailoa to put the team on his back and prove he can be the type of passer many fans had expected when he was selected with the 5th-overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft
Simply put; Save us Tua Tagovailoa, you’re our only hope.
