Tua Tagovailoa – What difference will he make for Miami Dolphins in 2022

Tua Tagovailoa – What difference will he make for Miami Dolphins in 2022: The Dolphins clarified with enough offseason moves that they are ready for the show. They are adamant and want to see if Tua Tagovailoa is a franchise quarterback. Is it enough to get Miami for the playoffs? 

3 X-Factors for Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa in 2022

2021 rewind:

Won seven games consecutively after starting 1-7. The Dolphins experienced a rough start, and things were pretty dull. 

After this, there was a magical seven straight wins to record 8-7

2022 VIPs:

Brian Flores got fired by the Dolphins after three seasons. It came as a surprise. After a month, Flores sued the NFL. It was along with three of its teams. Among them, the Dolphins are one. For Dolphins, it was because of following racist hiring practices and discrimination. 

The suit also states that Stephen Ross, the Dolphins offered money to Flores to lose games. The NFL is investigating the facts.

 After this news, Miami replaced Flores with McDaniel. 

The former offensive coordinator of the 49ers served under Kyle Shanahan for all his stops. It includes their connection in Houston from 2006 till ’08. 

Many are unaware that Mike is among the brightest minds in the NFL. 

Andrew Hawkins once mentioned McDaniel is the smartest footballer he ever worked with.

McDaniel coached many over the years. Among all, Matt Ryan is the only elite quarterback. 

Tua Tagovailoa remained electrified at Alabama. He underwent a hip injury and made the entry into NFL during the COVID-19 offseason. To many, it was not a fair shot for anyone to compete. 

He showcased some improvement last year. Tagovailoa moved the winning total from six in 2020 to seven in 2022. 

Tua improved in his:

  • Completion percentage
  • Passing yards per game 
  • Touchdowns. 

67.8 was his completion percentage, and he ranked seventh in last year’s league.

The projection for 2022 MVP: 

Tyreek Hill’s score moved down to the quarterback. But he completely changes the dynamic of the team.

 Miami went for five draft picks. It includes the 2022 first-rounder. 

The Dolphins are showing a new attitude. While Hill took the lead in his appearance for podcasts. He is making all possible efforts to put Tua up. The team was observed differently due to Hill. 

Hill remained the sole player of the Super Bowl era with a career minimum of:

  • 50 receiving touchdowns
  • 5 rushing touchdowns 
  • 5 return touchdowns in his career. 

  Cedrick Wilson, wide receiver- A New Face:

 Not much attention was given to the receiver room: Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill. Wilson got signed, and it remained a smooth yet low-key move. 

Wilson was aware of his role in Dallas. He did an excellent job mixing with Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb. Wilson delivered some big plays on his own. 

Some outstanding signings of the offseason

  Jaelan Phillips, linebacker:  There were 8.5 sacks, 16 quarterback hits, and nine tackles for loss. The same was in his rookie campaign of last season. 

He was second in quarterback hits and behind Micah. So, now you know why Phillips’ effort got overlooked. We hope this season will be different for him.

Roadmap of 2022

Three major dates:

Week 1: 

First four games of this year’s schedule will be against: 

  • The Patriots 
  • Ravens
  • Bills 
  • Bengals 

Week 5:

No assurance about Dolphin’s position, after the above four-game stretch. It will start as an easier part of the schedule.

Week 13: 

It will start with a three-game roadie. The same includes some back-to-back contests on the West Coast.

To taste success in 2022, the Dolphins MUST:

Dolphins come with a tough opening slate. It’s not wise to count winning 8 of 9 down the stretch, just like 2021. At present Miami is in a complete mix. So, wait and watch to know what exactly will happen.
