Dolphins QB shocks reporters by professing his Christian Faith: "It’s been a little tough having to play on Sundays"
It's sad that hearing public figures like athletes having the courage to openly talk about their Christianity is so rare that it's noteworthy. Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa professing the importance of Jesus Christ in his life is worth being amplified.
The Dolphins went into NFL Week 4 looking like an unstoppable juggernaut... until they went up against my Buffalo Bills. Nothing against the Fish. But the Bills lost to the Jets in Week 1, and Josh Allen took that personally. They've outscored opponents 123 - 33 since and handed the Dolphins their first loss of the season.
Tua was asked how he handles and bounces back from a loss like this. The QB said losing isn't the end of the world when you have the Good Lord.
"It’s been a little tough having to play on Sundays," Tua said before sharing he relies on watching church livestreams after games. "But allowing me this platform, to me, is the best thing in the world to be able to profess my faith on something that I firmly believe in, something that’s been foundationally instilled in me at a young age."
In fairness to the NFL, they have had more than a few public professions of faith. In 2020 when everyone was obsessed with taking a knee, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin led his team in taking a knee... in prayer.
Athletes and reporters were also very vocal about faith in God and Christ after Bills player Damar Hamlin's near-death experience on national television. ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky did something you rarely see anyone do on TV. Pray. Not just say "Ts and Ps." Not only pray OUT LOUD with WORDS. But he also acknowledged the existence of God.
Tua's message is powerful, and one I hope his younger fans take to heart. Don't get me wrong, anyone who says "It doesn't matter if you win or lose, it's how you play the game" is a loser that will never amount to anything. You should always play to win. There is no point in competing otherwise. However, there is no shame in losing when you look at the grand scheme of life that God has laid out for you.
