The Miami Dolphins unwittingly opened Tua Tagovailoa up to some criticism this week, but at least one Hall of Famer has come to the quarterback’s defense.

The Dolphins shared a hype video on Twitter that showed Tagovailoa uncorking a deep pass to newly acquired wide receiver Tyreek Hill. Fans immediately pointed out that it looked like the ball was severely underthrown. Kurt Warner weighed in and mocked those who made a big deal out of a throw in practice.

Tagovailoa is not known for having a cannon arm. That could potentially become an issue when he is trying to get the ball to Hill down the field, as Hill is one of the fastest players in the NFL. However, it should be noted that Tagovailoa has been very efficient throwing the ball deep.

There are plenty of ways Miami can get Hill the ball. Throwing it deep will be one of them. Warner is right that it is silly to draw conclusions based on a clip from practice, but the Dolphins didn’t exactly do Tagovailoa any favors by sharing that video.
