Tyreek Hill prefers Tua’s accuracy more than Patrick Mahomes
The Tyreek Hill defense for Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa continued this week as the striker compared Tagovailoa to Kansas City Chiefs defender Patrick Mahomes.
Hill, who was sold to the Dolphins from the Chiefs for a number of selected games this season, also expressed concern about the strength of Tagovailoa’s arm in the first part of his new podcast, “It Must Be Said.” Hill went so far as to say that Tagovailoa was a more accurate passer than Mahomes.
“I’ve had the opportunity to see and throw the ball to myself. He’s my friend, bro. A lot of people don’t know – I didn’t just sit here and say this because he’s my quarterback,” said Hill. “… He’s got the right hand, he’s right, he can throw a deep ball and pass through the reading.”
“Tua or Patrick Mahomes? Obviously, I’ll go [Mahomes] as a very strong arm, “Hill said.” But in terms of accuracy, I’m walking with Tua all day. “
Surprisingly, the percentage of Mahomes and Tagovailoa finishing jobs is not far off. Mahomes completed 66.1% of its papers from 2017-2021, while Tagovailoa completed 66.2% from 2020. Thus, technically, Tagovailoa is the right passer. But Mahomes has 124 touchdowns, 37 winners, an MVP and a Super Bowl ring.
Hill also went on to say that he did not want to play with a quarterback who just threw a deep ball to go and get it. He wants a quarterback who can hit him in the “basket of bread” so he can walk with the ball. Hill also said he added a lot of techniques to his game and he was able to find short and medium and deep routes.
This Hill statement is a wonderful reminder of what new Las Vegas Raiders recipient Davante Adams said about Derek Carr this week. Adams said Carr and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers are “very similar” in skill and skill, although the numbers and honors can be said differently.
This was not the first time Hill had defended his new role. The most recent recipient of the Dolphins documented what happened in Tagovailoa after a separate tweet of Tagovailoa’s bad record occurred in mid-May.
What went wrong in KC?
Hill talked a lot about the departure of the Chiefs and his first season. Although he said he enjoyed playing in Kansas City under Andy Reid and Mahomes and Travis Kelce – who he said was the strongest future ever – Hill and his assistant, Drew Rosenhaus, said he felt the recipient was not being used properly. and the Chiefs in the 2021 season.
“There were many times during the year when we saw that Tyreek was under-utilized and under-appreciated and that he did not make full use of his skills and abilities,” Rosenhaus told the podcast. “… Tyreek wanted to stay in Kansas City and we tried to add them.”
The underutilized part is a bit wrong when you look at the production of Hill 2021. In hindsight, Hill did not do better or worse in 2021 than any other season in which he played at least 12 games. 1,000 yards received for the fourth time since 2017. However, they ended up with six fewer touches in 2021 than 2020.
Hill added that some time ago he spoke to Reid and Mahomes for 30 minutes before the talks between Hill and Chiefs. Hill said he does not want to be the highest paid player in the league, but wants to be paid $ 25-26 million.
“They will never give me anything [that]”said Hill.
In the end, Hill earned $ 30 million after the Dolphins signed a $ 120 million four-year extension and a $ 72 million guaranteed deal. Now just wait to see if all the good things he has been doing all season are real when the 2022 season kicks off in September.
