Tua Tagovailoa claims he ignores the "noise" but keeps "receipts"

+

Tyreek Hill played only 47 percent of the offensive snaps against the Titans, and Miami lost by one point in going 2-for-5 in the red zone. The Dolphins played without him against the Jets on Sunday and scored 30 points and gained 290 yards. Hill has been mentioned more often as an MVP candidate than his quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa, because of the narrative that they go as their star receiver goes. Tagovailoa insists he tunes out the "noise," but also admits he keeps "receipts." "Everyone wants to make this about me, about Tyreek. Please, keep pushing it to Tyreek. Make it about Tyreek," Tagovailoa said, via Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN. "I understand that my platform and who I am in this league as a quarterback makes me polarizing. Whether I’m the best, whether I’m the worst, I [couldn’t] care less. I don’t listen to it. . . . At the end of the day, I really don’t care. But if [Dolphins communications] does share it with me, I mean, I keep receipts. We all have a way of how we do things, but all the narratives about it -- yeah, sure. I am only good with Tyreek, you’re right. That is the only time I’m at my best.
