Looking to bet on NFL online? Last season, Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was coming off hip surgery and didn’t play as well as he would have liked. During organized team activities, Tagovailoa said his surgically repaired hip feels “10 times” better than it did a year ago.
“Before, for me, I wasn’t as comfortable just in general. Wasn’t comfortable calling plays,” Tagovailoa said. “The guys that were here last year were phenomenal. I just didn’t have the comfortability of checking plays, alerting plays. Just rode with the play, even if I knew it wasn’t going to work. I was going to try to make it work.
“I didn’t actually know the playbook. Necessarily, really, really good, and that’s no one else’s fault but my fault. Our playcalls were simple when I was in. I didn’t have alerts and checks. Where now, I feel comfortable and I can maneuver my way through these things.” More sites to bet on NFL online have been reviewed on our homepage.
Tagovailoa was 6-3 after taking over the starter role from Ryan Fitzpatrick in Week 7, completing 64% of his passes with 14 total touchdowns to five interceptions. However, he wasn’t aggressive throwing downfield, which is why coach Brian Flores replaced him twice in the fourth quarter of close games in favor of Fitzpatrick.

Dolphins fans can expect that to change this season, with offensive coordinators George Godsey and Eric Studesville putting together an offense that will better suit Tagovailoa’s skill set.
Tagovailoa, who is the unquestioned starter heading into the season, already has a decent grasp of some of what Miami wants to run, and the fact that he had a fully healthy offseason has helped him focus on improvement rather than just hip rehab.
“Coming into this year, throwing isn’t as much arm this year as it was last year,” Tagovailoa said. “It’s using everything, using my legs, using my core and my arms just following. Very similar to golf.”
