Scouting Expert Chris Landry Explains the Benefit of Giving Tua Tagovailoa In-Game Reps
If backup quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is the future field general for the Alabama Crimson Tide offense, they will be in good hands under center.
With the Crimson Tide ending their last four games earlier in the second half, Tagovailoa has had many opportunities this season to come in for Jalen Hurts. In four games, Tagovailoa has thrown for 218 passing yards and four touchdowns, two behind Hurts' six passing touchdowns.
One expert thinks that Tagovailoa reps this season will not only benefit him as a quarterback moving forward, but will also provide the Crimson Tide with a security blanket at the QB position.
Scouting expert Chris Landry of LandryFootball.com joined The Game with Ryan Fowler for his weekly report to breakdown Butch Jones underachieving at Tennessee, Tua's performance to start the season, and Coach Nick Saban being tough on players after a blowout win.
