As rumors heat up about the Dolphins wanting to trade for Deshaun Watson, 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe question if Tua Tagovailoa's has gotten a bad rap in Miami. Maybe Brian Flores needs to get a little bit more of the heat and according to Brady Quinn, that's starting to happen in South Florida.

Brady Quinn: "A common thing you'll hear people say is, 'Tua's not the problem, but he's not the answer,' which is pretty unfair... He hasn't even played a full rookie year yet and we want to write him off completely... If you have an issue with Tua, if there's a lack of that maturation process, a lot of that has to do with the fact that Brian Flores last year, jerked Tua in and out of the lineup. He didn't give him the chance to go finish football games. He put Ryan Fitzpatrick in there instead... You don't get to see those moments from him or see how much grit or determination he has if you just pull him from those scenarios. I think that was one of the biggest detriments to his growth last year as a rookie."
