I Said It: Preparing For Carolina

Posted Nov 11, 2017

Here are more comments from the Dolphins locker room ahead of the game against the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium on Monday night:

“Whoever is next to me or whoever is playing with me, it really doesn’t matter. Luckily, I’ve been fortunate enough to play with a lot of good safeties throughout my career here, but it really doesn’t matter.”
— Reshad Jones is getting ready to play with a new partner at safety.


— Reshad Jones understands a big part of the job description at safety.


“Hopefully, through his recovery process and through everything, the push for the five-year mark, whatever that number is, is going to be something we both will be fighting for again.”
— Jarvis Landry was disappointed his good friend Odell Beckham Jr. got injured and therefore could do battle this year for most catches by a player in his first four NFL seasons.


— Jarvis Landry is looking forward to the Dolphins showing a national television audience what they can do.

“If you hold the ball longer and receivers are further down field, you probably have a better yardage type play, but then you’re also vulnerable to guys like me and mis compadres.”
— Cameron Wake threw out a little Spanish to explain opposing quarterbacks have to know the risk of holding on to the ball to try to create a big play.

— Cameron Wake doesn’t really concern himself with the fact that Carolina’s Cam Newton is a bigger quarterback and therefore could pose a different challenge.

“If you hold the ball longer and receivers are further down field, you probably have a better yardage type play, but then you’re also vulnerable to guys like me and mis compadres.”
— Cameron Wake threw out a little Spanish to explain opposing quarterbacks have to know the risk of holding on to the ball to try to create a big play.


— Cameron Wake is hoping the Dolphins can duplicate the second-half magic of 2016 while understanding it’s a different season.

“We bonded a little bit on and off the field, so we’ve got a relationship. It’ll be fun. I’m ready to see this guy play and for both of us to go out and make plays.”
— Reshad Jones got to build some rapport with T.J. McDonald during the spring and training camp.

— Mike Pouncey was disappointed to see Ja’Wuan James land on IR but is confident Jesse Davis can get the job done at right tackle.

“Hopefully it works out the same way that we hit our stride and we finally find our groove of offense, and we can keep our defense off the football field and help them win football games.”
— Mike Pouncey is hoping the Dolphins can use the same formula that helped them be successful in the second half of last season.


— Mike Pouncey understands the Dolphins still are within reach of their goals in 2017.
