Here are a few quotes that didn’t make it into any of our stories today. These were all from yesterday’s press conference following the Miami Dolphins victory over the Chicago Bears.
On comparing this week’s performance to past performances
“I guess. I don’t really compare today to any other game. It was a good win. They’re playing well. They played an excellent game last week on film. This is a tough place to come in and win. I thought it was a good team win.”
On the importance of this game in the scope of the season
"I told the team…On Tuesday afternoon I meant it. Without having watched the practice tape, at the end of practice on Tuesday I told the guys – from my naked eyes without over-analyzing film – this was the best Tuesday practice we had all year. So that kind of set the tone for the week. The guys came into the building, they had a great workout, had good meetings, work on the practice field was very good so I think all of us had a lot of confidence the team was going to play well.”
On the use of different cornerbacks
“It was just the game-plan – coach’s decision. We wanted to have different combinations based on what the down-and-distances was and situation so we used a couple different guys. We had Jamar (Taylor) outside and Cortland (Finnegan) inside. We did some mixing and matching there.”
