New Dolphins receiver Tyreek Hill was a guest on the first episode of "It Needed To Be Said". He was saying plenty of things about his departure from the Chiefs. Hill also says a few things about his new quarterback, and about his former one.

For those of you not aware, he was playing with QB Patrick Mahomes and he is now lacing them up with Tua Tagovailoa.
Tyreek was asked who has the stronger arm, Tua or Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes?
«Obviously, like I'm gonna go with 15 as the strongest arm but as far as accuracy-wise, I'm going with Tua all day,» Hill said.
«So which one would you rather have, the deep ball where you gotta scramble around the field to try to go find it, or do you want that accuracy to hit you breadbasket on the run?» Collins asked Hill.
«I want it to hit me right in the breadbasket, just like I did in the Buffalo Bills game and take it 70,» Hill said. «And the rest is history.»
The accuracy argument for Tagovailoa doesn't hold up when looking at overall numbers. While he completed 67.6 percent of his passes to Mahomes' 66.3 percent, Mahomes had an adjusted completion percentage of 79.2, which was second in the NFL behind the Bengals' Joe Burrow; Tagovailoa was 18th at 75.3 percent, per PFF. Tagovailoa had the fourth-most turnover-worthy throws at 4.8 percent, while Mahomes had the eighth-fewest at 2.6 percent.
Hill has been one of the league's most dangerous deep receivers, ranking second in ADOT on deep passes at 34.7 yards in 2021 and earning a 97.2 grade on deep balls, per PFF. His 36.2 yards per reception ranked 12th-best in the NFL and he ranked 27th by receiving 15.4 percent of his targets on deep passes.
Hill added that his game in Miami will consist of a lot more than tracking long throws.
«I love the deep ball, but guess what though? I done expanded my game,» Hill said. «So now I'm doing a lot more than just the deep ball now. I'm doing intermediate routes. I'm doing short routes. So now I actually need a guy who can just get me the ball now, on a dagger route, on a corner route, on a shallow cross route. You know, right now, right in my chest. So I can do the rest. I make you look good now.»
Hill pointed out that, during a game without Mahomes in 2019, he made Matt Moore look pretty good, while Mahomes was out with a knee injury.
«I just want people to understand I went for 150 with Matt Moore as my quarterback,» Hill said. «I love you, Matt Moore. Versus the Minnesota Vikings. If you don't remember that game, 150 and one touchdown with Matt Moore as my quarterback. And Tua T. is 10-10, Matt Moores. I love Matt Moore, but Tua T. is 10 Matt Moores.» (Hill had six catches for 140 yards and a touchdown that day.)
