    Fitzpatrick been playing with house money for the last 8 yrs. He plays well when he isnt expected to be the guy and win games.

    Put playoff expectations on Fitzpatrick and see what happen. He the Lou Williams of QBs good enough to get you instant offense but not good enough to LEAD you playoff victories if you have championship aspirations.

    Fitz has been cooking for my fantasy.

    Lost Dak.

    Guess I'll pick up Tua.

    They should have waited for the eventual Fitzpatrick collapse. Now if Tua starts struggling, you'll hear Fitz being called. :mjlol:

    I get what you saying but he aint been hit in almost a year tho. Of course he gonna have to get hit eventually but I wouldn't throw him to THE WOLF cause you dont. know how he gon react mentally.
    Tua got a habit of trying to do too much (how he got hurt in the 1st place) and that ain't what you wanna do against a monster like AD.
    I'd wait til after the rams just cause i wouldnt throw a 1st gamer into the fire if i didnt have to

    Front office/owner made this call. It absolutely makes no sense to start a rookie coming off of major knee surgery when your trying 2 make a playoff run

    I get that. I think it's a trade off though because we have a bye this coming week so it allows Tua to have 2 weeks to prepare and the OC to implement a game plan that works best with Tua's skillset (I imagine you'll see a lot more designed runs, outside the pocket stuff, and RPO's). So I think it was a matter of deciding whether 2 weeks to prepare for the Rams D was better than one week of preparing for whoever else. Even if he gets roughed up, I don't think one week make or breaks a franchise QB. If he gets sacked 10 times and then sucks after - he just sucks, it wasn't because he got sacked 10 times in his first game.

    But again, if he wasn't ready to be hit, why make him the backup in Week 1? He could have easily come into the game then and had to take hits if something happened to Fitz. If he was ready and healthy then, he's gotta be feeling a lot better about it now. Tua's parents have stated they text Flores all the time - if there was any hesitation about him getting hit, I'm sure he'd know.

    Miami had a plan and didn't let a hot two game stretch derail that.

    Good for them acknowledging that Tua getting snaps in 2020 weighs more than Fitzpatrick being good enough to give you hope before he implodes.

    I would've waited until later the season or this year. Fins should let Tua sit this season and heal completely and learn. I hope Tua do well and can last thru this.

    That's the thing, it's not like we were Super Bowl contenders anyway. What's the best case scenario with Fitz? We find a way to win the division and lose in the wildcard round? I'd much rather know if Tua is going to be the future or not going into next offseason. Fitz has shown what he is; he's streaky and can look great in spurts, but you're never going to actually contend with him. Why not see if your 1st round pick is worth a damn?

    Surprised by this. Fitz has been playing well and I believe the Dolphins are on a winning streak. Tua must have looked good as hell in practice.
