There is perhaps no faster pairing than wide receivers in the NFL from Tyreek Hill And Jaylen Waddle.
The duo has just formed, but it didn’t take long for Hill to start envisioning the possibilities the two might have put in place together once he dived to Miami in late March.
He even went so far as to proclaim that he and Waddle are not only the fastest couple in the championship today, but ever.
“I’m calling my shots: we’re the fastest tandem of all time,” he said this week in an interview on the NFL Network. “The sky is the limit for this team. The dream is to make it to the Super Bowl.”
He went on to praise Mike McDaniel’s offensive acumen and doubled down on his previous compliments on Tua Tagovailoa.
“Mike definitely brings a lot of new ideas,” Hill said. “I feel in my heart that Mike will put everyone in a position to make plays. I said what I said [about Tua being more accurate than Patrick Mahomes]. I am an older, experienced guy. I have seen what Yours can do and I am true to my word. “
Waddle was a little more modest with his comments but said the pair would pose a major problem to a number of opposing defenses.
“Of course, you always have to worry about the vertical stroke, but we can also get in and out of our paths, so you can’t just prepare yourself for one thing,” he told reporters. “It’s always nice to have depth in the receiver room and have people who can play in different positions.”
Hill’s big claims are undoubtedly raising the bar of expectations about these Dolphins.
But for Nick Wright, Hill is doing more harm than good with his cheeky comment.
“The Dolphins have a nice easy game [to start]”,” Wright said Friday in “Things First.” “But then it’s the Ravens, the Bills, then it’s the Bengals.
“I am grateful for what Tyreek Hill has done for my beloved Chiefs, but they have won without him. I think he is biting more than he can chew to be a good teammate. He will be quickly frustrated. In fact I think he is doing. his team a disservice. “
Tyreek Hill on Jaylen Waddle: “The defenses will be scared”
Nick Wright is not sold on Miami being a legitimate threat, even with all the trust of Tyreek Hill. He watches as he shares his predictions for Miami for the 2022 NFL season.
Chris Broussard was also not in love with Hill’s statements, but expressed confidence in the team’s offense.
“I don’t think the Dolphins will set the world on fire, but it’s good to receive the body,” he said. “Waddle had a great year as a rookie, even with the quarterback’s irregularity. Of course we know what Tyreek Hill is and Mike Gesicki is a great tight end.
“Here’s what I know: Tagovailoa has won 13 of his 21 games. He’s very accurate, no more than Mahomes, but he’s accurate. And he did it by playing behind the worst offensive line in football. For the past two years, Pro Football Focus him. he had in the last five. I like Mike McDaniel and I think the attack will be legitimate. “
The numbers don’t lie and the stats on both receivers support Broussard’s position.
Since joining the NFL in 2016, Hill is third in received touchdowns (56), second in all-purpose yards (8,745) and first in both over 40-yard TD catches (21) and over 50-yard TD catches. (13). Last season, the six-time Pro Bowler scored 111 receptions for 1,239 yards and nine TD receptions, finishing in the top 10 in all three categories.
Waddle, on the other hand, had 104 catches (NFL record for rookies), 1,015 yards in reception and six TDs in reception last season, and is only one of two rookies to record more than 10 catches in three separate games. He also set a Dolphins rookie record for single game receptions with 12 in week 3.
