“Take it one play at a time” – Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores’ message to Tua

Meanwhile, Dolphins coach Brian Flores informed ESPN that the quarterback trained well but he doesn’t want Tua to force himself. He instead asked the quarterback to take one thing at a time and calculate risks accordingly. Last, he reminded the quarterback to be a team player and to take one play at a time.

“Take the plays that are there. If there’s an opportunity for a big play, try to make it — don’t try to force anything,” Flores said Friday. “It’s not a one-man team. … My message to him is take it one play at a time, go through your progressions one play at a time and try to execute.”
