Brian Flores blasted for Miami Dolphins QB situation

NFL: Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots

The Miami Dolphins QB situation heading into Thursday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens was about as odd as it gets. Backup Jacoby Brissett started his second consecutive game with starter Tua Tagovailoa suffering through a broken finger on his throwing hand.

Interestingly enough, Tua was still active to serve as Brissett’s backup. It led to questions about what head coach Brian Flores was actually doing.

That was taken to a whole new level early in the third quarter when Brissett suffered a knee injury. As he made his way to the sideline, Miami called on Tua to take snaps under center.

Once Brissett was cleared to return, Flores was seen holding his “starting quarterback” back on the sideline — only to continue to roll with Tagovailoa.

So, the Dolphins’ injured starting quarterback was tasked with replacing their injured backup quarterback who was call on to start the game in the first place.

For a Miami team that has lost seven of eight heading into Week 10, this can’t be seen as a good thing. It also doesn’t paint Mr. Flores in the best of lights. Despite Miami boasting a 6-3 lead at the time of this controversy, those watching the game were equally as baffled.

Is Tom Brady the greatest of all time or a cheater?
