DeVante Parker: Tua Tagovailoa’s mechanics are different

The growth of quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is something the Dolphins are looking for this season and it is something his teammates and coaches are regularly asked about when they sit down with reporters this offseason.

Head coach Brian Flores has discussed a greater comfort level in the offense for the 2020 first-round pick and players have noted the difference in Tagovailoa’s tone in the huddle. On Wednesday, wide receiver DeVante Parker discussed other changes with the way Tagovailoa is playing the game.

“His mechanics look different. . . . Footwork, ball out quicker, all that,” Parker said, via Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post.

The success or failure of the 2021 Dolphins season isn’t going to rest entirely on the shoulders of one player, but Tagovailoa is going to get an outsized serving of credit or blame for how the team does in his first full year as the starter.

  1. The hatred for Tua is directly related to envy of Alabama. It is obvious that Tua has a ton of talent and will be very successful at Miami. His critics are clueless.

  2. Note: “his first full year as the starter”. Let the young man develop….the Dolphins have their QB.

  3. Ready for that second year jump, all the dolphins need now is a thumper at running back…..

  4. It’s the mental things that separate the winners from the losers, not the mechanics.

  5. It sure sounds like the Dolphins have a campaign to prop up Tua. How soft is this guy, huh? Doesn’t bode well for their prospects.

    I am sure it has nothing to do with the fact Alabama consistently produces busts at the QB position

  7. I am sure Nick Sabin is happy knowing he has once again fleeced the Dolphins!
