After the controversial decision to bench Ryan Fitzpatrick and start Tua, most thought Tua would be the guy the rest of the way.  Not only did the Dolphins five-game winning streak come to an end in Denver yesterday, but they may also have created a controversy which Armando Salguero said: “raises questions.”  Armando joined The Joe Rose Show on Monday morning to discuss the controversy.

Salguero said, “I understand why Coach Flores made the move but when you do that it kind of raises some questions and I know they did their best after the game to make sure that there are no questions but there are questions.  So Tua is the starter and that’s definite but who’s the closer...if Tua struggles for a half is Tua going to be looking over his shoulder going ok they are going to be thinking about bringing in Fitz or does he get a whole game that’s the kind of thing this situation raises.”

The Dolphins, fortunately, get the winless Jets next week so Tua will have an ideal matchup for a bounceback.
