Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores on December 28 take-out


Dolphins head coach Brian Flores led his usual post-game media shoot on Tuesday following Miami’s 20-3 win over the New Orleans Saints at the Caesars Superdome.

Here are the highlights of this media session:

– The first question is about the offensive line, and Flores praises the Tennessee defensive line before mentioning just about every group of positions on the team.

– Flores names Jeffery Simmons as a player to watch in Tennessee’s top four.

– The offensive line has had a tough game against the Saints and Flores says there will be corrections to be made.

– Return specialist Tommylee Lewis undergoes most of the tests on his injured hip.

– Wide receiver AJ Brown is one of the best receivers in the league, said Flores, praising Ryan Tannehill for giving him the ball. Says Tannehill is doing a good job leading this attack.

– The Dolphins have been able to apply pressure even without a blitz, and Flores praises the work of defensive coordinator Josh Boyer and his team. As Flores points out, one key to being able to get past the quarterback has been the ability to stop the run.

– It was shortly after Flores became head coach that the Dolphins left Ryan Tannehill, and Flores basically says he’s a “very good player”.

– Flores is invited to reconsider the decision to let Tannehill move on, and unsurprisingly, Flores says he doesn’t really care to revisit something that happened in 2019. “I’m in some way. so focused on the guys who are on our team. “

– Asked in general about the “franchise districts” and the most important attribute, Flores said tenacity, competitiveness, intelligence, leadership, precision, taking care of football. “That’s what every team is looking for.”

– Jaylen Waddle has done a good job since entering the building, said Flores, adding the usual comments that Waddle is “smart, tough”. Also commends Waddle for his ability to absorb information.

– Mike Vrabel played for the Patriots during Flores’ time as an assistant there, but Flores says Vrabel coached him, not the other way around. “This is someone I call a friend.”
