Tua’s history suggests otherwise.  ☹️

 

 

Yeah with the potential for CTE or simply becoming "gun shy" after being sacked 500 times I'd say that's actually a legit concern for any QB

CTE usually comes post retirement if ever, so not sure that's a risk on his playing ability. 

 

As for "gun shy" there is a counter-intuitive argument to be made that he's actually too "gun brave" and that he may benefit from not holding on to the ball so long. 

 

If you consider that his best season was with his worst OL - when he knew he had to throw it quickly or be drilled - versus when his line got better and he held on to it longer assuming he would have time. 

 

Since his processing of the entire field is already twice the speed of other mere mortal QBs, him playing at a quickened pace is almost impossible to stop (unless it's against Aaron Donald and our OL just waves him through).

Yeahhh you're not going to convince me that getting sacked 50+ times a year behind a clownshoe OL is somehow a good thing 😆

 

Good effort though!
