McDaniel isn't the type of coach to throw his young QB under the bus, but he isn't going to exaggerate what he thinks of him. Perhaps his comment about Tua's personality was in response to nOmar saying this week (he is leaving the Sun Sentinel) that Tua is a weird guy.

On Tagovailoa, McDaniel said: “The dude is right-handed and he throws lefty. When he throws the ball, every lefty I’ve been with, the ball tails. His doesn’t. It’s the most accurate, catchable ball I’ve ever seen.”

McDaniel likes how Tagovailoa’s “personality is coming out on the field in an authentic way, not forced.”
