Post Special Teams Ruled The Day For The Dolphins
People tend to forget the role special teams plays in the outcomes of game – except when the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets play each other.


“You’ve got to give a lot of credit to Darren Rizzi and Dave Fipp because they had an excellent game plan,” Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin said. “The players obviously studied the plan, practiced the plan hard and executed it well. It was impressive to watch and there were some impressive things, no doubt about it.”


The players that were not on special teams credited that unit with turning the game in Miami’s favor and it allowed the defense and the offense to play downhill for the majority of the game. Center Mike Pouncey, who was at the center of the war of words leading up to the game, felt it from the start.

“They set the tone and put us in situations where we were on the plus side of the field instead of playing backed up,” Pouncey said. “That helped us out a lot. It opened up our playbook a lot more, allowed guys to get open and opened up more holes. It was just a great performance out of those guys.” ... edeadf61d5

That's what they get for putting Tebow on punt coverage.

Wow........... Rizzi is the man.....atleast Sporano did something right. Westeroff said this was the worst game he has ever experienced since being in the NFL.
