Attention The Phinsider Community Members: Beginning today SB Nation has started rolling out a fresh and modern update to their comment section that has been long overdue. The new makeover will take effect at The Phinsider on Tuesday, August 11, but at some point during the change some of your memberships may be affected and you’ll lose the ability to comment. If this happens you will see a prompt with an email to contact support to rectify the situation as soon as possible.

Ryan Fitzpatrick understands the situation he is in right now. He knows he is the placeholder until Tua Tagovailoa is ready to take over the Dolphins offense. Whenever Tua does take over, Fitzpatrick has promised to be his biggest cheerleader as he knows this is going to be Tua’s team heading forward.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
