Colin Cowherd: “Right now Tua leads the NFL in on-target throws, so you feel pretty good about that. He’s the most accurate guy and the ball is perfectly thrown!... He ALSO leads the NFL in uncatchable inaccurate balls. This is what I predicted. Miami would make the playoffs and get trapped with Tua because the offensive coach is so brilliant, they got running back upgrades, left tackle upgrades, and Tyreek Hill. They’re 6-0 when Tua starts games this year, he has the highest passer rating in the NFL, and Miami is starving for stability. That last point cannot be dismissed. Denver was so desperate to find the next Elway that rational people talked themselves into Tim Tebow being great. ‘Desperation’ creates a loosening of the standards, and Miami has been so dysfunctional for years that they are starving for stability. When you’ve had success— Bob Griese, Don Shula, Dan Marino, Jimmy Johnson – you have historically high standards AND you add in now you’re ‘starving', you start convincing yourself of half-truths. ‘TUA IS GREAT!’ No, Tua is ‘winning’, he’s not great. That’s a half-truth. He’s winning and completing a lot of balls 15-and-under, he is not great. Mahomes is great, Joe Burrow is great, Brady has been great… Miami is now in a very predictable corner. Tua is a good distributor of the ball when the play is in front of him, but they’re a little bit trapped. They keep winning games and it’s going to be like Dak Prescott where you’re going to have to pay a quarterback more than he is because pride and desperation always create half-truths and a lowering of standards. I’m hearing a lot of thisL ‘TUA IS GREAT!’ No, he’s winning. He’s not great, that’s a half-truth.” (Full Segment Above)
Watch Colin Cowherd downplay Tua Tagovailoa’s breakout season with the upstart Miami Dolphins, as Colin says that Tua is ‘not great’, he’s just ‘winning’ against an easy schedule with an incredibly talented offense.
Check out the video above as Colin details why he believes Tua could become another Dak Prescott, as a slightly above-average player with talent limitations who ends up getting paid way too much.
