The Miami Dolphins haven’t any shortage of offensive weapons with Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle among others, and the largest question mark surrounding the team could be whether quarterback Tua Tagovailoa can maximize that talent.
Head coach Mike McDaniel appears to think he is able to.
“It is the most accurate, catchable ball I’ve ever seen,” he said of Tagovailoa’s throws during an appearance on The Dan Le Batard Show:

“It is the most accurate, catchable ball I’ve ever seen.” Dolphins Head Coach Mike McDaniel on which he’s seen up to now from Tua Tagovailoa.
Le Batard pressed the first-year head coach on that answer, and McDaniel confirmed it after giving it some extra thought. He also said it had been even more impressive because Tagovailoa isn’t even throwing along with his dominant hand.
It ought to be noted that McDaniel has been an assistant coach for the Houston Texans, Washington, Cleveland Browns, Atlanta Falcons and SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA 49ers. He’s got caused quarterbacks Matt Schaub, Robert Griffin III, Brian Hoyer, Johnny Manziel, Matt Ryan and Jimmy Garoppolo.
McDaniel’s comments echo those from Hill.
“Tua actually has among the prettiest balls I’ve ever caught,” the wide receiver told reporters in-may.
Considering Hill caught passes from Patrick Mahomes on the Kansas City Chiefs, that quote should give Dolphins fans a lot of confidence.
