As famed Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth once said, you always want what you haven’t got. During the Ryan Tannehill era, many Dolphin fans lamented that the team didn’t have a less physical but perhaps more accurate quarterback who could nickel and dime the opposing team down the field, extend drives and come away with points more often. You know — exactly the kind of QB the team has now. Ah, but that was then. Now, of course, size, height, arm strength, and overall physicality are the be-all-end-all. Why? Because Josh Allen plays for our inter-division rival, the Buffalo Bills, who are 4-0 and counting against the Dolphins during the Brian Flores era. Allen, who tips the scales at 6’5”, 237 pounds, is the favorite quarterback of many Dolphin fans, along with Justin Herbert, of course. Then again, many of those guys would probably still take Josh Rosen over Tua Tagovailoa, if only because that would mean they wouldn’t have to hear about Tagovailoa so much. It has to be disheartening when the guy who quarterbacks your favorite team, and whom you never wanted to begin with, is also the fourth most popular player in the entire NFL. But Tagovailoa, based on merchandise sales, is hugely popular for more reasons than just having a million-dollar smile, or for having overcome a devastating injury. He’s hugely popular because there are an awful lot of people, many of whom aren’t even Dolphin fans, who believe he’s going to do great things in the NFL. All by himself, the young man has already accounted for a substantial increase in the value of the franchise for whom he toils. I don’t think I need to tell you that that translates into more nationally televised games, which those of us who don’t reside in the South Florida area or are able to have a satellite dish installed, appreciate.
