Five interceptions, folks! If that’s not the definition of a disaster, then I don’t know what the hell is. How does any pro QB throw five interceptions in a single day of practice?
That’s not just bad. It’s downright horrific. That’s the kind of stat line that sends fans into a deep and dark downward spiral.
As Tua said, there are things that can be fixed!

Look at this screenshot of Tua addressing the media after the fact. The dude looks like his soul has been destroyed!

I’ve been high on Tua for a long time, and I have defended him against a lot of criticism. However, if Tua is out here getting destroyed in minicamp, then I might have to recalibrate my expectations because he’s clearly not ready to roll in the NFL.
He had all the hype in the world coming out of Alabama, and it seems to be falling apart right in front of our eyes.

Let’s hope he can turn it around quickly. If not, Tua is going to find himself on the bench sooner than later.
