The Dolphins engaged in a game of tug-of-war at Monday’s practice, special teams coordinator and newly named assistant head coach Darren Rizzi revealed in an interview with the Finsiders.

It’s part of interim head coach Dan Campbell’s aggressive, intense practices.

“We had 1-on-1s on the side,” Rizzi told the Finsiders. “We did a little tug of war today — a little tug of war battle — which the guys had fun with. We did a little one handed catch with the linemen — little things to create competition.”

Campbell on Monday also showed Dolphins players a short video of NBA legend Michael Jordan, who is perhaps the greatest all-time sports competitor.

It sounds like a page out of Pat Riley’s book, who respects Jordan so much that he hung his Bulls jersey in the Heat rafters.

“In this video, he talks about how there’s not a more competitive person he’s ever met than himself,” Rizzi said. “Dan’s message to the team was that he wants us to have a room full of Michael Jordans. He wants the 63 guys, including the practice squad guys, to be the most competitive people that they knows and not have to have the coach be able to motivate you.”

Rizzi said it’s been a tough week and while he feels for former coach Joe Philbin, he understands the coaching change.

“I have the utmost respect for Joe Philbin as a human being, as a coach,” Rizzi said. “Let’s call it what it is. No one want to see a coach lose their job. I’m a coach, it’s what I do for a living.

Nothing wrong with having a bit of competitive fun in practice.

It sounds like the lobster traps that Wannstedt put up in the locker room. All the team got out of it was a big laugh.

I think so too. Hopefully the coaches worked the guys hard enough they felt the players deserved something lighter after

That was so dumb! More than half the guys didn't even know what they were! :)
