Tyreek Hill, bless his heart, is saying all the right things he can to make fans think he has the utmost confidence in Tua Tagovailoa’s arm and accuracy.
The Miami Dolphins wide receiver backed quarterback Tua Tagovailoa earlier this month after a video showing the quarterback underthrowing Hill on a deep ball was posted to the team’s social media.
Hill spent the last four years catching passes from Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City, but he didn’t sound like someone who thought he was downgrading at the position after being traded.
“What a lot of people don’t know about Tua is, he’s very competitive, he’s a very hard worker, and the guy can actually throw the ball better than a lot of people actually think.”
The comments continued:
“Tua actually has one of the prettiest balls I’ve ever caught in my life. . . . Tua is a very accurate QB. . . . I’m very confident in my QB . . . the sky is the limit for that guy. Heck of a talent. Has crazy arm strength, arm talent,” Hill said, via Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com.
Fans were not having it:
Mahomes targeted Hill a whopping 159 times in 2021 and connected on 111 of those passes. The receiver had 1,239 yards and nine touchdowns.
