The highly anticipated debut of Tua is rapidly approaching.  Meanwhile, Dolphin fans got an opportunity to see the Rams defense on display last night and they didn’t disappoint as they did not allow an offensive touchdown to the Bears.  Tua will have his work cut out for him but like Michael Lombardi said this morning on The Joe Rose Show, this is about the long term and it will take some time.

Lombardi said about the decision to start Tua, “Look at some point you are going to have to dive into the pool, the water is never warm and you can't wait for that, you aren’t going to be able to get Vanderbilt or Maryland on the schedule for Tua to play…he’s going to have to jump in and deal with it.

As far as how Tua can get some help Lombardi said, “They will do a good job of game-planning and preparing him for what the Rams want to do and how they play and hopefully some of the players, the Parkers, the Gaskins…those guys help him make plays…I think this is maybe not the right decision short term but long term it definitely is.”

The Dolphins and Tua will kick it off at 1 PM on Sunday at Hard Rock.  Sunday’s game can be heard here on WQAM.
