The Miami Dolphins secondary will have another tough test when the San Diego Chargers come to town on Sunday but Reshad Jones, the quarterback of the secondary, is ready for the challenge. When talking about Phillip Rivers, Jones had nothing but praise for him and the way he plays the game.
“He stays in the pocket. When the pocket collapses, he stands in the pocket and delivers strikes. He’s got some great guys on the outside that he can get the ball to, Antonio Gates and Malcolm Floyd, those guys running around. It’s going to be a tough challenge for us this week, so we’re going to have to come with our A game.”
Antonio Gates is another guy the Dolphins will have to worry about. While Gates isn’t the most popular tight end in the league, he quietly wreaks havoc each and every week. Jones called him a Hall of Famer and a guy who is shifty, fast, one that can run and one that has great hands.
While many say that this game is extremely important for the Dolphins and the Chargers, Jones doesn’t necessarily look at it as a game that will make or break their season.
“Not really. We have a 1-0 mentality. We take one game at a time. Right now, we’re focusing on the San Diego Chargers. Like I said, I think it’s going to be a tough challenge for us. It’s going to be a big game, at home, in front of our home crowd, we want to go out and do all we can to get a victory.”
Jones has been a huge factor in the defense ever since returning and will look to continue his solid play on Sunday.
