Dolphins Fans Are Calling For The Team To Trade Tua Tagovailoa After Team’s Embarrassing Blowout Loss To Bills

It seems like the honeymoon is over between Dolphins fans and rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa.

Earlier this week, FS1 host Colin Cowherd suggested on his show that the Dolphins should probably consider trading Tua and drafting a QB with the top 5 pick they’re getting from the Texans from the Laremy Tunsil trade.

“I’m gonna throw a scenario at you. Buffalo hosts Miami on Sunday, Buffalo is a better team. What if Tua struggles, gets benched a third time, Miami misses the playoffs, and tomorrow’s headline is ‘NOT TUA IMPRESSIVE.’ What does Miami do with the number three pick from Houston? Think about this – their defense is GREAT, the number one scoring defense in the NFL.

Tua has not been a disaster and somebody would absolutely trade for Tua. Justin Herbert and Joe Burrow were asked to carry bad teams; Tua has been asked to manage what appears to be a very good team. Look at Tua’s yards per game, it’s LAST in the NFL among qualified starters. Herbert averages almost 300, Burrow almost 270, and Tua is at 160. He’s done fine at managing a game, but every time he’s been asked to do more and WIN a game that’s not really what he can do.”

Dolphins fans initially scoffed at the idea of trading Tua but the young QB once again struggled against the Bills on Sunday in a must-win game.

During the game, Fins fans began calling for the team to trade Tua and to replace him by drafting a QB in the first round.
