Dolphins head coach Brian Flores decided to pull quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in the second half of the game against the Raiders last Saturday, and the switch to Ryan Fitzpatrick won The final second victory.
The victory allowed the Dolphins to beat Bill to win the playoffs this Sunday, and Flores did not hesitate to designate Tachovailoa as the starter of that game. Taking into account the situation of the game last weekend, this is a decision to make a second guess, but the first-round picks neither indicate this situation nor suggest that the upcoming playoff berth will be an additional burden.
“For me, there is actually no additional pressure,” Tagovailoa passed Miami Herald. “I have high expectations for my performance and how to lead the players to victory. Obviously, this past weekend, I did not meet the standards. More importantly, I know we have to go out here to get the job done. If you can’t get the job done , Then everything is on you. There is nothing else.”
Tagovailoa said that the communication between the coach and the players is very harmonious, and he is confident that he will keep in mind the “best interests” of the team when doing everything. If the team’s best interest is the quarterback change, then Flores will ask again in the wild card round.
