Much was made on Monday about the performance of New England quarterbacks during a minicamp practice in the rain. It’s raining on Tuesday in South Florida, and Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is struggling.

Via Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post, the second-year quarterback was intercepted three times in “torrential” rains.

The interceptions were made by Trill Williams, Jamal Perry, and Nik Needham.

Interceptions in offseason workouts don’t mean much. But with no football games to be played for three more months, it’s all that’s happening — and it’s worth at least pointing out.

Once the season begins, the Dolphins will be expecting more from Tua. He was very good at times as a rookie, but he was benched multiple times for Ryan Fitzpatrick. Tua recently has admitted that the didn’t know the offense well enough in 2020, which helps explain the decision to yank him for a quarterback who did.

  1. He actually threw five total. I like that he’s letting it lose but he’s got to fix the mistakes quick. He has a couple more days like this and the players will become frustrated,he’ll lose his locker room fast.
    Jacobi better be getting his classroom work down!

  2. Howard isn’t even in camp so it worries me that the 2nd and 3rd tier guys are picking him off.

  3. no Fitzmagic to bail him out this year. Going to be a long winter in South Beach

  4. Practise is where you want your QB to throw ints. This way, he knows balls he can force or can’t. this is not an issue.

  5. We’ve had about 2 inches of rain since Sunday night in South Florida, people worrying about Tua throwing pics in the rain, seriously? Let’s get real. When he starts to play on Sunday’s let’s do our “analysis” then.

  6. Tua is not a bust. Heck, he hasn;t even started yet.

    Mike: you wrote: “Tua recently has admitted that the didn’t know the offense well enough in 2020, which helps explain the decision to yank him for a quarterback who did.”

    Mike, I don’t agree. Tua’s being picky and you are riding with it. Have you seen one (or more)of their playbooks? Gigantic! Not one player on the team has the entire volume(s) memorized and mastered … yet THAT is Tua’s goal.

    Here’s an example in the real world. It takes 12 years to become a licensed surgeon, yet in the last 3-4 years of that time, they are still learning the playbook … yet they are still operating in the hospital … with an experienced backup in place.
