It was quite a weekend for Dolphins wide receiver
Stafford happens to be the nephew of longtime NFL wide receiver Cris Carter, who was among those inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend. Head Coach Joe Philbin allowed Stafford to attend the induction ceremonies Saturday night.
Stafford had one catch for 3 yards in the Dolphins’ 24-20 loss, a fourth-quarter grab that set up the final touchdown of the game.
“It was a blessing to actually have my uncle being inducted into the Hall of Fame and me playing in the Hall of Fame Game,” Stafford said. “It was a great atmosphere. My family was all here. It was a great experience overall. Proud to be with my family and today to be able to showcase my talents in front of them was a great feeling.”

FROM THE LOCKER ROOM
Head Coach Joe Philbin: “I didn’t think we tackled very well as a football team. Again, I can sit here and tell you we do tackling drills every single day at practice, we just didn’t tackle very well.”
Quarterback Ryan Tannehill: “It took us a little while to get going and that’s what not the way we wanted to go. We want to get off to a fast start, move the ball early and we didn’t do that.”
Defensive end Derrick Shelby: “The rushing end of it went pretty good, but in the run game I kind of let a couple get out on me, so there was some give-and-take with how I played tonight.”
