Chris Grier: Tua Tagovailoa’s confidence stands out

Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa said in April that he doesn’t feel added pressure because of the moves the team has made to build up the offense around him and General Manager Chris Grier hasn’t seen any signs of it during the team’s offseason work.

Grier was a guest on SiriusXM NFL Radio recently and he was asked about what has stood out the most about Tagovailoa since the team returned to work this spring.

“The one thing is his confidence level,” Grier said. “He played well for us in the second half of the season and I think with the additions we’ve done, the players we’ve added around him, has him really excited.”

Grier said he’s seen the entire offense buy into head coach Mike McDaniel’s offense and that defensive players are saying that they “cannot believe the transformation” on the offensive side. Those developments have not put questions about Tagovailoa’s entire skill set to bed and the only way they will go away is if Tagovailoa’s confidence translates to a lot of winning later this year.

  1. Confidence. Failures often have lots of it. The problem is what they don’t have.

  2. Hate all you Pats and Bills Mafia fans all you want. Miami is going to be a tough opponent this season and Tua is going to challenge Allen as the best QB in the AFCE

  3. With more targets, a real running game, and an upgraded offensive line I do not see how Tua doesn’t take a major step forward this year. But, let the haters hate.

  4. Don’t Fear AFC East Opponents Miami most likely won’t sweep you all…….Will they???

  5. I would not refer to the Dolphins as off season champs, but they certainly did more to improve the roster than the Patriots did. Miami has always been a thorn in NE’s side and I do not think this year will be any different. I would surprised if Miami were to win both games. Not saying that will happen, just saying it would not surprise me.

  6. No more excuses for Tua. He is in a very QB friendly system now. The same Shanahan/Kubiak system that made even Brock Osweiller look good.
