The Miami Dolphins are widely considered to be a team on the rise in the NFL, with the team striking gold as the result of hiring Mike McDaniel as its head coach.
McDaniel defied the odds last season and turned the Dolphins into a legitimate force to be reckoned with in the AFC.
Unfortunately, injury issues to star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa made it difficult for the team to contend or even see what the future may hold in Miami.
However, McDaniel is more confident than ever in his starting quarterback

McDaniels’ breakdown of his analysis of film of Tagovailoa shows how passionate he is about his quarterback and how much faith he has in him being a resounding success in Miami for many years to come.
Many people question why the Dolphins wouldn’t go after Lamar Jackson during this NFL offseason, with a team built to contend right now.
It’s obvious that McDaniels is enamored with Tagovailoa and might be willing to risk his coaching career or at least his job in Miami.
When healthy and playing at the top of his game last season, Tagovailoa was a legitimate NFL MVP candidate.
He finally seemed to figure things out, especially with the two-headed monster downfield in Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.
The pressure will be on McDaniels and company next season.
They’ve gone all in on Tagovailoa, which could either turn out to be a genius move that pays immediate dividends or catastrophic if the star quarterback can’t stay healthy moving forward.NEXT: Stats Prove The MVP Play Of Tua Tagovailoa In 2022
