Getting a little ahead of the action today, but looking forward to the Mac vs. Tua matchup. I don't care who wins, but hope both play really well. There will be a lot of pressure on Tua this year... playing at UA should help him deal with that to an extent, but he didn't face this type of pressure with the Tide. Physically, Tua is much more ready for the NFL now than he was last year... would love to see him start off the season well and build some confidence. Performing to his potential would go a long way to quiet the Watson/Dolphins noise, and relieve a good bit of that pressure.
I think Mac will be fine... he will have his rookie struggles, but the Patriots wouldn't have gone all in on him without knowing what they have, and hard to disagree with Belichick and McDaniels on that.
