Here’s another NFL franchise with a promising young quarterback who oozes cool. Tua Tagovailoa has the best chance of anyone to be the heir apparent to Dan Marino down in South Beach. He may not have the arm of the Miami Dolphins‘ legend, but that release of his is pretty sweet, if we’re being totally honest. If Tagovailoa hits, he’s the next Marino or Bob Griese in Miami.

Even though the Dolphins went with a totally new, sleek look a few years ago, just stop it. If I am not allowed to see a dolphin jumping out of the ocean with a football helmet on his head, I am not interested in watching Dolphins football. Go retro as all hell with this rebrand, ‘Phins. You will thank us for it later.

With a teal and orange combo unlike any other in football, once the Dolphins go retro, Sam Bradford will want to come out of retirement and collect another $10 million pay check. He would die to be seen holding a clipboard on an NFL sidelines in some sweet, delicious ’90s Marino Dolphins sleeves. Tagovailoa will push more merchandise than any player not named Marino.

The Dolphins are one of the few franchises we really want to embrace their past. It would be a great way to honor the late and iconic football coach Don Shula. Who needs to see Larry Csonka, Mercury Morris and a bunch of ’72 guys in teal blazers when they can rock a new spin on their retro threads they previously made famous. I’m not a Dolphins fan, but I would buy a Tua retro.
