There’s no question that Tua is their future, but considering the Dolphins have been playing relatively well, I think the timing of this move is kinda odd.

I agree ...
Fitzpatrick has been playing real well ... and the Dolphins are winning ...
I like Tua and hope he does well, but I'd hate to see the season turn if he doesn't handle everything right away ...
Most QB's don't come in right away and perform to a winning standard.

And not to mention after their bye week, the Dolphins are facing Aaron Donald and the Rams. Extremely curious timing.

Maybe they figure that Tua is more MOBILE ?
Thus being able to move around against the Rams ?

Could be, but I feel like this was a premeditated move. In other words, Brian Flores targeted this game to hand the keys over to Tua. It certainly has nothing to do with Fitz’s performance.

Pretty solid choices, but I think it’s unfathomable that Deion Branch didn’t even make honorable mention. Not only did he have a very solid career with the Pats (two different stunts), he also won a Super Bowl MVP.

Just saw this. I’m sure MLB and FOX is happy that Tom Brady and the Bucs aren’t going head to head with the Rays and the World Series anymore.

The new game will probably be a better game, so I'm not sure its gonna matter much ...

Its interesting that the Pats started out with 1 player out and they moved the game to a different day ...

Oakland has and potentially 5 (O-line) and they won't at least not yet have moved the game to a different day.

To me thats BS, the NFL has to have the rules the same for every team ...
This game should be moved to at least Monday or Tuesday (to give them time to be cleared) or change thier BYE week, like they screwed up the Steelers Bye week.

The NFL moved this game for thier own selfish reasons.

My point wasn’t about which game is better (although personally I would be more intrigued to see Brady and the Bucs go against Gruden and the Raiders in Vegas. And now because it’s buried as a 4:05 ET game on the non doubleheader network AND the Patriots are playing at the same time it will not be shown in the Boston market. I can only see dribs and drabs on the Red Zone Channel). But that’s neither here nor there. I was talking from a Tampa/St. Pete perspective that the Rays don’t have to go head to head with the Bucs.

Just like a couple of weeks ago, I don’t understand your point here. Are you saying that the NFL gave the Patriots a break by making them fly to KC without their starting QB and play the best team in the NFL, not knowing how many more players were potentially infected because they were still in Cam Newton’s incubation period?? Yeah sure, Pats caught a huge break there.

First point ... I didn't put together that both TB teams were playing ... my bad.

Second point ...
My point is that the NFL has to be consistent ... nothing to do with which teams, could have been any team.

My point is that they will have one team play a few days later (extra Monday or Tuesday) while others they reschedule them to thier Bye week, which screws with the team that loses thier bye. (Tennessee and whoever they were suppose to play, think it may have been the Steelers) Granted the Titan situation was more extreme as a bunch of people were exposed.

IF possible, they should play that next Mon or Tues., and they may be leaning that way now, but it still cost teams thier bye week which typically is towards the middle of the year ... in this case it was made to be week 3 which is hardly anywhere near the middle of the season. I can understand if Tennessee's bye got pushed around, seeing it was thier outbreak, but its the other teams that get screwed.

Minnesota was next or before, don't remember now, never did see if they rescheduled thier Bye week or not.

None of this really makes any sense. Games were moved because new cases were being found still. Raiders may only have one player out.

Bye weeks start week 4 and end week 12, they aren't all 'towards the middle'.
