New England Patriots

Albert Breer of TheMMQB joined Zolak & Bertrand in studio, and discussed his new poll of NFL decision-makers on who they think the top quarterbacks in the NFL are. Among the surprises on the list was Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa, popped up on the list at #12. Bert discussed Tua’s presence on the list:

  • Here's what Bert wrote about Tua showing up on the list:

    I was a little bit surprised by this one, so I asked for an explanation from the guy who voted for him. “He hasn’t had weapons like this since he left Alabama. And the offense will give him a lot of looks where his first read is open. And to me, that’s the great thing about doing this list every year. It helps us look forward at what’s to come at a time when so many different things like Tua becoming a top five guy are possible.”

  • Breer discusses Tua at #12 with Zo & Bertrand:

    Albert Breer: If you watched him at Alabama, I think both you guys probably saw a fair amount of him in Alabama. The best thing about him was it looked like he played fast. It looked like he played fast and instinctive and loaded the ball. And he was a point guard out there. And he would get Ruggs and Jeudy and Waddle and Devonta Smith, the ball in space, and those guys would fly. Can he be that guy in the NFL? Maybe.
