We weren’t sure what quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was going to look like in a Mike McDaniel styled offense. Entering the 2022 season, Tua had the support of many fans but there were also a ton of critics because Tua had not looked like a franchise quarterback while his peers, Joe Burrow and Justin Herbert, looked like stars in the making. But Tua exceeded expectations in year 1 under McDaniel. The only problem was he couldn’t stay on the field, which is a big issue for any franchise when your starting signal caller is out. With Tua on his fifth-year option, the Dolphins have been aggressive in building a star roster. How far this team goes will depend on the performance of Tua and whether or no he can stay healthy enough.

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