Tyreek Hill would like Tua Tagovailoa's critics to "chill" when it comes to ripping practice videos.

The new Miami Dolphins wide receiver tweeted a video of Tagovailoa connecting with pass-catchers on a number of impressive practice throws. It was the type of video teams often tweet out in an effort to generate excitement during this portion of the NFL calendar.

Can y’all chill or nah ? We talking about practice 😬😬😬 <a href="https://twitter.com/Tua?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@Tua</a> 🥱<a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Dimez?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Dimez</a> # Uno <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/soulrunner?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#soulrunner</a> <a href="https://t.co/HO6QnRuZxD">pic.twitter.com/HO6QnRuZxD</a>

Only a previous Dolphins' video did the opposite of that.

Miami tweeted a video of Tagovailoa connecting with Hill on a deep ball earlier this week that drew plenty of criticism and jokes. While the pass being in slow motion may have thrown off the perception a bit, it still looked like Hill had to slow down to catch it.

It also wasn't difficult to envision a defensive back camping underneath it.

Tua looking like more of a Tim Tebow lefty than a Mike Vick lefty on this one. 🦆🤣<br><br>(🎥: <a href="https://twitter.com/MiamiDolphins?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@MiamiDolphins</a>) <a href="https://t.co/n6tytUCTiy">pic.twitter.com/n6tytUCTiy</a>

This is pretty impressive for Tua given he’s throwing with his left arm. (Checks notes) He’s a lefty? <a href="https://t.co/wVUBjSXj0N">https://t.co/wVUBjSXj0N</a>

Under no circumstances can you tweet this as the actual team. In the time of year for OTA propaganda... this is a hit piece! <a href="https://t.co/MVQ1Es3oCv">https://t.co/MVQ1Es3oCv</a>

Fortunately for the Dolphins, there is still plenty of time for the new quarterback and wide receiver combination to prove critics wrong.
