We're hearing again that the playbook needs to be more open for Tua. The fact is, those complaints last year were totally correct. Tua is a very smart guy. I really don't like the "play not to lose" mindset when it comes to the OC position. Perhaps the game plan was the way it was because of the the state of the OL and the quality of the defense. We will see another game like that on Sunday even with Fuller back.

It feels like the offensive staff doesn’t trust opening the playbook to Tua Tagovailoa, which we didn’t expect from Alabama, where it seemed he had a great handle on things. Last year, he admitted he struggled with the playbook. That cannot continue if the Dolphins want to consistently win games.
Maybe it was a game plan issue. But if this continues into Week 2 and beyond, even Will Fuller won’t be able to consistently separate.
