Head Coach Brian Flores spoke to the media before practice at the Baptist Health Training Facility at Nova Southeastern University on Wednesday. Here were some comments that stood out, along with some perspective:
“It's settled. (Josh) is improving on a week-to-week basis.”
— Josh Rosen took over as the starting quarterback in Week 3 when the Dolphins faced the Dallas Cowboys, and Flores said at the time he would be evaluating the position on a weekly basis. So this is a change, with Flores saying Rosen is the starting quarterback moving forward.
“Eric is a professional. He's working at the things he's struggling with. He'll improve and get better.”
— Cornerback Eric Rowe has familiarity with Flores from their days together in New England, and Rowe has started the first four games of the season. Flores says he’s liked the way that Rowe has tackled but would like to see more consistency, something he says applies to just about everybody on the team.
“Charles has been in the right spots. Like everybody else, he's had some tough plays as well.”
— Charles Harris has lined up at defensive end and linebacker for the Dolphins this season, and Flores said the 2017 first-round pick has done a good job in terms of carrying out his assignments. The next step with Harris will be making plays more consistently when he’s in a position to do so.
“I'm looking at a talented team. My approach is the same. I don't really look at records.”
— The Washington Redskins will come to Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday with an 0-5 record, but Flores said the week of preparation will not change one bit because of that. Flores has a lot of respect for the personnel on the Washington roster, pointing out the talent on the Redskins defensive line and the speed at wide receiver.
