Tua Tagovailoa should have competition to push him for the Miami Dolphins starting job next season

Dolphins fans need Tua Tagovailoa and Mac Jones story instead of Watson saga

Tua Tagovailoa and Mac Jones will take center stage in Week 1 as Dolphins visit Patriots. With the release of Cam Newton, the Patriots ushered the Mac Jones era in with brute force.

The Patriot Way!

Nobody will feel sorry for Bill Belichick on the Miami sideline, as Brian Flores and his defense will set sights on the statuesque Mac Jones. So now perhaps the media can focus on an interesting story of two Alabama quarterbacks. Competitors from the same college team now competing at the highest level.

Instead of this:

The Watson situation has cast a pall over an otherwise triumphant preseason for both Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins. Miami finished the exhibition season in spectacular fashion, with a roster for the most part intact and ready.

Jones got his first shot as a starter at Alabama when Tua suffered his hip injury during the 2019 season. When Tua departed for the NFL in 2020, the reins passed to Jones who took full advantage. Now they meet again in what should be the first of many matchups to come.


A pretty fascinating tale if you look at it. The backup in Jones, who waited for his time while Tua was front and center. It was actually Jones who took Alabama wire-to-wire for a National Championship.

Although Tua’s relief performance in 2018 was one for the ages.

So both come in with pedigree and moxie, arriving at this moment in different yet overlapping ways.

This should be one of the leading storylines heading into the 2021 NFL season, at least in the AFC East.

But instead, fans of the Dolphins have been made to wait and wonder.

Now finally, it appears the Watson saga on and off the field may be confined to the great state of Texas.

If so, let’s embrace a nice and easily palatable story of two Alabama quarterbacks facing each other instead.
