How did Tua Tagovailoa become an MVP candidate? Find out Friday.
All offseason, no player in the NFL was mocked more than the Miami Dolphins quarterback. Go Long traveled to South Florida to figure out how he got to this point.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
My gosh, do we have so much to be thankful for here at Go Long HQ. As I type this post, my three-year-old daughter is plopped on my lap. Seems like yesterday that I launched GoLongTD.com unsure exactly if you all even wanted to read longform journalism around this game. Ella was still a baby. Sonny hadn’t been born yet. Raising a family as anyone in sports media can be daunting, let alone trying to start a business from scratch.
Thanks to you, Go Long is healthier than ever.
From Day 1, I’ve tried to make it clear that — hell yes — I’m in this for the long haul. As our second anniversary closes in, I could not be more thrilled with the future. Go Long is all about serving you. Building a community. So, in that vein, keep an eye out for a new “VIP” subscriber option next week.
As for tomorrow’s feature? Wanted to give you all a heads up that I’ll have two-part series on Tua Tagovailoa and the Miami Dolphins. With the Dolphins setting defenses ablaze, the time was right to fly to South Florida and figure out how we got from Point A to Point B. I believe you’ll find the launch of “Tua Time” quite fascinating. Tagovailoa swapped the worst possible situation for the best.
This series is only for subscribers. Upgrade right here if you’d like and/or share with a friend:
Locals, I’ll be at Fattey Beer Company in Orchard Park, NY this Sunday at noon to sell and sign copies of “The Blood and Guts: How Tight Ends Save Football.” Let’s drink a beer and watch football.
Also! We have a Thanksgiving Day edition of the chat live within the Substack app rolling. Please spend time with your families, not buried in a phone, but these are three exceptional games. Can’t remember a Turkey Day slate this juicy. If you’ve got to rant or rave about anything today, let’r rip right here.
