Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill started his own podcast and one the first episode he made one interesting claim - that Tua Tagovailoa is more accurate then Patrick Mahomes. For many years, Hill and Mahomes were considered as one of the strongest quarterback-wide receiver duos in the NFL.
Mahomes' resume speaks for itself as he is a Super Bowl champion, a Super Bowl MVP and he was also named the NFL MVP in 2018. On the other side, 2020 fifth overall pick Tagovailoa has yet to prove himself in the NFL.
This offseason, Hill couldn't agree on a contract extension with the Kansas City Chiefs so he left his old team and joined the Dolphins. Many aren't sold on Hill having success with Tagovailoa as his quarterback but the All-Pro wideous is confident Tagovailoa has what it takes to be a great quarterback.
"Obviously, like I'm gonna go with 15 (Mahomes) as the strongest arm, but as far as accuracy-wise, I'm going with Tua all day," Hill said on the first episode of his podcast, via CBS Sports.
Hill defends Tagovailoa
Some think that Tagovailoa just have the arm strong enough to deliver deep passes.
Giving his thoughts on that, Hill said that's absolutely not tru. "I've had a chance to see Tua throw the ball, to myself, but, he's that dude, bro," Hill said. "Like, what a lot of people don't know, like, I'm not just sitting just saying this because he's my quarterback now.
I'm not trying to get more targets right now, but what I'm trying to say is Tua is that deal, bro. Bro, he has a heck of an arm, bro. He's accurate. He can throw the deep ball, and he actually goes through his reads, where people are like on Twitter like saying, 'Oh, he doesn't go through his reads.'
Man, this dude is that dude." Mike McDaniel, who was hired as the Dolphins head coach this offseason, also defended Tagovailoa. "I think his teammates have really noticed a difference in him; he's opening up," McDaniel said.
"He's kind of coming in his own in that regard. And he's been unbelievably coachable. He's let his guard down. And we've been able to keep his confidence high, which it should be right now for sure, while correcting him and getting this game better, which is the ultimate goal for everyone." It remains to be seen how productive will Hill be with Tagovailoa as his quarterback in 2022.
