The Splash Zone 5/25/22: All Eyes On Tua Tagovailoa

NFL: New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

I feel like we have been talking about his a ton over the offseason, but there is a ton of pressure on Tua Tagovailoa’s shoulders this season. Tua just hasn’t lived up to expectations after being taken 5th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft compared to his peers in Joe Burrow and Justin Herbert. The argument can be made that the Dolphins offense was not built that well under Brian Flores and speaking of Flores, it sounds like Tua never had the full support of his head coach. But now the team has set him up for success after the moves they made this offseason and brining in an offensive minded head coach in Mike McDaniel. On paper, this offense is so much better but it’s only going to go as far as Tua can take them.

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