Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel shuts down suggestion Tua Tagovailoa is a system quarterback

In the NFL, the quarterback usually gets the majority of the credit when their team wins and the lion’s share of the blame when a team loses. But in the case of Pro Bowl quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, things are more nuanced.

Tagovailoa is in the midst of an impressive season. Entering Week 7, the Miami Dolphins quarterback is leading the league in passing yards and is tied for first place in touchdowns. Tagovailoa started showing significant signs of improvement last season under head coach Mike McDaniel.

McDaniel spent several years coaching under San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. McDaniel has seamlessly implemented his offensive system in Miami, which has resulted in the best offense in the NFL. 

But Tagovailoa quickly shrugged off the concerns.

“I don’t care,” Tagovailoa said when asked about those who question whether he can throw the deep ball. “I mean, I don’t care – 466. That’s what 466 is if I can’t throw deep. Thanks.”
