Tua Tagovailoa had an up-and-down rookie season with the Miami Dolphins in 2020. While he had a 6-3 record as a starter, he only had 11 touchdowns to 5 interceptions and 181.4 yards per game with a passer rating of 87.1.

Any rookie showing signs of struggle is understandable, and even more so for Tagovailoa who was coming off a hip injury that was thought to be career-threatening at the time.

As he heads into year two, Tua recently revealed the major differences in his game and mindset for 2021. He points to his comfortability greatly improving, as well as his confidence in his hip.

No matter how talented you are, coming off an injury like Tua had is going to make you question parts of yourself and your game, or at least be a little tentative. Then add in being a rookie starting QB in the NFL, making it all the more difficult.

Dolphins fans should be excited and confident with Tua's potential progression in year two, it's clear that he is.
