As another weekend of NFL football wraps up, Jason Whitlock evaluates which teams and players shined and which failed to perform.
“The biggest star of the weekend,” he says, was “Tua Tagovailoa,” the Miami Dolphins quarterback who “absolutely lit it up” in the game against the New England Patriots.
However, Jason is also concerned that Tua’s success might be short-lived because the team has “the fastest pair of receivers perhaps in NFL history … between Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.”
“I just wonder if Tua has the arm strength to keep up with those guys over a 17-game NFL season,” he tells Brett Favre.
But Brett isn’t nearly as concerned.
One reason for that is because Tua’s position coach, Darrell Bevell, is a good friend of Brett’s and “one of the better coaches in the league.”
On top of Bevell’s excellent coaching, Tua has “great knowledge of the game,” as well as “anticipation and … good rhythm,” he explains to Jason.
Further, Brett also thinks Tua has found a way to compensate for his questionable arm strength. “He throws the ball so far in advance before the guy comes out of his break,” he says, and he knows how to “[play] within his own strengths and weaknesses.”
