They said it
Dolphins assistants met with the media Wednesday to discuss a variety of topics. Among the talking points, high praise for Dolphins running back Malcolm Perry, courtesy of Josh Grizzard.
"He's done a nice job and it's a testament to him that he just works his ass off all the time," Grizzard said. "What he does a good job of is not making the same mistake twice. So if you see something wrong on one play, 'hey man, you didn't do it quite how we wanted it,' he does a good job of walking through it on his own and coming back the next day and improving on that and then filing it away for, 'okay, this is how this needs to be done the next time.'"
Around the Beat
Grizzard was one of nine coaches that were made available to the media yesterday. Among them, linebacker coach Anthony Campanile, who answered a question regarding his coaching approach and philosophy.
Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post organized the answers, including Campanile's.
"Organize the information so the guys are thinking in sound bites, not sentences; and they can play fast. I think good football players and good football plays are made with anticipation so you're trying to take away all anxiety because anxiety – obviously you're in fear or unsure of what's going to happen in the future, whether it be in the next few seconds or the next few weeks. Anticipation is you have a pretty good idea, 'hey, this is probably one of two or three things, not one of 10 things.'"
Stat of the Day
Malcolm Perry led college football with 65 runs of 10+ yards in 2019 with the Navy Midshipmen. He also finished second in the NCAA with 2,017 rushing yards.
