Im justtt saying. Hes bot a stud, hes serviceable and mobile(or he was). You know ive been higher on him than most.
He's not horrible but he usually coughs up the ball at the worst of times. Glad he's getting a chance though as never had a chance with LAC.

Which is odd bc hes usually fairly conservative

I think it's a good move with little risk although they need to figure out who's starting and let them have time to gel. I expect them to look a lot better against Atlanta.

"Tagovailoa was sacked twice before the Epenesa hit and Jacoby Brissett has been sacked twice more since taking over for Tagovailoa. Those protection issues will have to be ironed out regardless of who is under center in Week Three."

No shit! Receivers didn't help the QB's either running shit routes and dropping passes....but it's always the QB's fault.

Coaching choices weren't helping the Fish much either. Keep going for it on 4th, one of these times it will finally work...

As I've said all along - I'm not sold on the Dolphins because I'm not sold on Tua - especially his ability to stay healthy. Once again - he's injured.

The best ability is availability, and I just don't think Tua has it. Regardless of whatever else I think about his ability, none of it matters if he's not on the field.

Brissett is almost a lateral move from Tua. If things around him are good, he’ll be good. I think our offensive line coach and O-coordinators need to be looked at.

Maybe but it wasn't Tua's fault and Brissett hung up a zero also.
Dan Marino coming back won't help with the O-line play the Dolphins are getting.

It might get better into the season but it is still possible that some or all the early draft picks on the O-line are busts!

True - but one of the knocks on Tua coming into the NFL was his build and ability to stay healthy. He had an injury every year at 'Bama, IIRC....there were audible concerns if he would be able to hold up against bigger defenders at the NFL level.

That had nothing to do with Brisset....if you were bullish on the Dolphins, it was likely because of Tua, at least in part. Not because of Brissett.

As a Bengals fan - I feel I am well qualified on shitty OL's....and the Dolphins' OL is pretty bad.

I thought they were 64th best watching them today...backups and guys on street are better.

Weren't there some posters on here telling Miami fans that Oline would be their demise? Until the fix that the fragile Tua is at a constant chance of being on the IR. Their window getting narrower and narrower.

So, yay or nay on the Dolphins?

That revolving door allowed 1 sack and enabled Gaskin to get 5.4 per carry (other runners not very successful though).
Does -34 net points make the Dolphins the worst 1st place team in history?
Does an O-line that allows it's franchise QB to get broken ribs sound like a good thing going on?

No one was denying the fact that the oline was not top of the league. They are young and started out slow last season too. They have added players to improve it but unfortunately takes time to gel. Sure it's frustrating that they played so horrible last game but I'm confident that they'll get their shit together. Sure didn't help with some of the calls and receivers dropping easy passes but it happens. When it rains it pours especially against buf these days. Sunday will be interesting wouldn't shock me if they pull out a win.

Tua has been put on IR. Minimum 3 weeks out.
Tua will miss at least the Raiders, Colts and Buccaneers.
Rib fractures can take 6 weeks or longer to heal and could be entire season before he can take a hit.
With that offensive line you might be better off with Brissett taking the hits.....
