    I have been very negative about Tua's ability to be a QB. I am man enough to admit Tua is a tearing it up and I WAS WRONG! And I am so happy I was wrong.

    I'm glad you were wrong, too. The most exciting thing is he still has room to improve.

    There were legitimate reasons *cough* [Brian Flores] *cough* to have doubts about Tua before the season. Even the people who were highest on him were saying he had to turn it on consistently in games.

    He still does. He can be better. I want him to be his best. As OO614 pointed out, how exciting is that? Look how Tua has improved year to year, and he just finished game 6 in the new offense. If he learns to protect himself the next few years are going to be great for Dolphin fans. The throw aways were my favorite plays today.

    We got one man enough to admit he was wrong.

    Best thing about finding a franchise QB is that we're going to have him for 10+ years. Talk about a total change of experience for this franchise. It's so crucial to find that QB and I think we're 99% there (just need full season confirmation). SB becomes a legitimate possibility, though one does have to watch out for Tua's huge future contract crowding out signing other key players. Would be nice to make the SB run this year or next year on his rookie deal.

    Beginning of the Dolphins resurgence!

    Grier's top priority for next season has to be to plug in the gaps on the OL. They didn't play poorly today, but that shouldn't be considered a positive critique. I'm excited for this season, but I'll be as giddy as a little girl when our OL goes from being occasionally "not bad" to consistently "pretty darned good".

    i do wanna see the OL out of the bye when presumably jackson is back. We obviously need upgrades at LB and DB too. And id like a short yardage thumper of an RB

    It is going to be really interesting on the salary cap

    Congrats man.
    Removing this weight will make watching your favorite team much more enjoyable.

    You will be able to cheer whole heartily, without prejudice against the guy that touches the ball literally every offensive snap.

    Tua had a great performance but there were couple throws down the stretch that he could have made that would have sealed the win. Why can't it just be easy sometimes and not down to the last minute????

    I was also wrong on draft day- I wanted Jalen Hurts in the 2nd/3rd round instead of Tua. Or I wanted to trade up for Burrow. And while both my picks also turned out to be pretty special, I am very happy with how Tua is developing into an elite franchise QB.

    I guess it's different for me since I rooted for Tua since day 1 as a Dolphin; he just wouldn't have been my personal pick.
