If not for Tua's quick release it would be longer than 2.6 seconds to throw it. Tua will learn. I do believe the Dolphins would rather Tua manage games at this point than to take risky shots to receivers who aren't open. That's what Fitzpatrick does. Heck, guys, Tua has 3 rookies starting on the OL in front of him. Let that sink in. We got a taste of the playoffs, but we shouldn't be even thinking playoffs in the first year of a rebuild. We are ahead of the plan.

Tagoailoa’s sacks are, in no small part, due to his inability thus far to get the ball out as fast as Fitzpatrick does. According to NFL Next Gen Stats, Tua holds onto the ball two-tenths of a second longer than Fitzpatrick (2.4 to 2.6).
And while offensive coordinator Chan Gailey has become a target for criticism due to what seems to be an overly conservative game plan, it’s not like Tagovailoa has been banned from taking downfield shots. He just hasn’t been able to complete too many of them.
