Brissett is a decent back up QB, but that is all he is. Watch about any play and you will see that he is just too careful with the ball to the point of not hitting receivers when they are open. Tua's mind will only get faster with the more experience he gets. I also think this offense favors receivers such as Waddle .... Gr ... well, he's gone.

During training camp, preseason and the Week 1 of the regular season, a staple of the new-look offense under Tagovailoa was the run-pass option, which — as its name suggests — gives the quarterback the option to hand the ball off to a running back or throw to a pass-catcher. Tagovailoa excelled with RPOs during his record-setting season at Alabama. The team has moved away from RPOs with Brissett, opting for more traditional drop back passes. One benefit of the RPOs were that defensive players were forced to wait for a potential run instead of going into their pass rush right at the snap.
The Dolphins also decreased their use of the pistol formation, an alignment from which they ran many of their RPO plays. 6.5 percent of Tagovailoa’s drop backs came out of the pistol formation, as compared to just 1.7 percent for Brissett, entering Week 5.
Coaches and players have said that lining up in the pistol formation can also shroud the direction of a run play, as opposed to the running back lining up to the left or right of the quarterback.
