By design the hype video is meant to create some hype. On Tuesday the Dolphins managed to do the exact opposite by posting footage of Tua Tagovailoa throwing a ball to Tyreek Hill.
Ideally you’d search for a move that completely spiraled via the air, hitting the receiver in stride, and operating away for a landing. It will have conjured pictures of the potential to come back, a vibrant, new-look offense with deep passing potential.
As a substitute this was very, very unhappy.
Regardless of being underneath no strain in a apply state of affairs, Tua’s move wobbles out of his hand with poor velocity. Tyreek then has to come back again to catch the move, earlier than establishing his run once more. In a recreation state of affairs this type of sluggish, wobbling duck would at finest lead to a contested move, at worst it might flip right into a pick-six — but that is what the Dolphins tried to showcase.
Take a stroll via the Twitter replies and also you’ll see all method of individuals making enjoyable of this throw. Aside from some die-hard Dolphins followers, bless their hearts, who’re displaying clips of Patrick Mahomes throwing deep handed Hill needed to come again for as if to intimate that Tua and Mahomes are related quarterbacks.
We are able to simply overlook the truth that the movies they’re displaying of Mahomes have him throwing underneath strain, on the run, throwing 45 yards downfield whereas being chased — not on a apply discipline. Apart from that I’m certain they’re equivalent, proper?
There’s no placing lipstick on this pig, the Tua x Tyreek video is simply dangerous. The astonishing half is that this was ever placed on Twitter to hype folks up.
