Brian Flores: “Some good, some bad” from Tua Tagovailoa

Tua Tagovailoa has gone through his first two padded practices as an NFL player and Dolphins head coach Brian Flores offered some thoughts on how he’s looking during a session with reporters on Wednesday.

Flores said that Tagovailoa has shown no signs of trouble with his surgically-repaired hip as he’s gone through drills, but that he is experiencing the kind of mixed performances that you’d expect to see from a player moving to a higher level of competition.

“Some good, some bad,” Flores said, via Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “Some good throws and good decisions, some throws that aren’t so good and some decisions that weren’t so good.”

Without preseason games to play this summer, these padded practices will be the best way for Tagovailoa to show how well he is transitioning to the NFL. Unless the performance goes from some good to all good in a hurry, that transition will likely continue in the regular season as he takes on a backup role behind Ryan Fitzpatrick.

  1. ♫♫ You take the good, you take the bad,
    you take them both and there you have
    The facts of life, the facts of life ♫♫

  2. This tells me we will see Fitz week one against the Patriots. After the last game this should be a great drudge match. I am very interested un seeing the post-Brady betting line on this game.

  3. As I said before Tua’s latest injury in college, before the draft and again on draft night, being a Miami fan I HATE this pick. And when all is said and done, Miami will hate it as well. Marcus Mariota 2.0

  4. Based on the performances in the first two practices. Tua is the third QB behind both Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen. Let’s see if Tua can elevate or get better as the training camp continues.
