COVID-19, hmmm. There is no good time to get this infectious disease, sorry to learn Fitzpatrick tested positive. Just like all things this year, all of us have had to rearrange plans and do what we can do to stay safe while trying to carry on a normal existence.
This positive test places our rookie QB in the spotlight without any hope of having the elder QB come in to hold on to a victory or march the team down field for an amazing victory.
It's time for Tua to put on his "big boy pants" and forget about being a member of Saban's team. He is now cast to rally the Dolphins, march them down the field with passes and good decisions so the team can score more than the Bills. He must show confidence, he must put zip on the ball and run when the receivers are not open. He needs to take charge. His effort against the Bills will be telling, IMO.
Tua needs to have a good game, it's a good oportunity for him to prove that he can finish a tough game that really matters without a "relief pitcher". Somehow I feel like this scenario was meant to be.
He was sold as the complete pckage and, NFL ready to be worthy of a 5th over-all pick and he was set to be the starter anyhow so, the game should not be affected. IF he gets pulled in the 4th in favor of Rudock then, I'd say we have a problem going forward.
Losing Fitz is tough.......Going out west was not something I was too keen on. Covid is like wildfire out there. I feel bad for him because hes really close to his family and kids and has to stay away form them for a while during the holidays. That sucks. Get Well Fitzy!!
This is TUAS's moment. Unfortunately we have injured players all through the rooster. No player can do it by himself. If we lose and don't make the playoffs I'm not going to see this as a reflection on him. If we win fantastic! 2020 was a horrible year all round but our Phins found a way and I'm proud of them. The Future looks brighter then ever!
