Brian Spurlock - USA TODAY Sports

Before he released his workout clip to social media, Tua Tagovailoa had his passion for football questioned by Pete Prisco of CBS. The senior NFL columnist for CBSSports.com and host on CBS SportsHQ stated on Monday that he wants Tagovailoa to play with ‘more passion.’

He also discussed how it would be more risk than reward for the Dolphins to take the former national champion at No. 5 and he gave the potential grade a “C,” if the team selects him. 

On top of this, Prisco also said that Tagovailoa ‘doesn’t have the fire in the belly’ needed to have success at the next level.

In this segment of In My Own Words, yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine offers a rebuttal to Prisco’s statement and talks on why the former All-American will win a Super Bowl.
