It's difficult to characterize the Miami Dolphins' current quarterback situation as a competition or controversy.

Certainly, Ryan Fitzpatrick isn't about to go easy into a Sunday night; his die-hard play down the Dolphins' 2019 stretch was example of that.

But Tua Tagovailoa is most assuredly seen and forecast as the Dolphins' quarterback of the future.

And as Miami looks to rebuild itself into a contender, Tagovailoa is less chasing Fitzpatrick as he is Dan Marino, just like the more than 20 Dolphins signal-callers before him.
