“New England is a great team, but, at the end of the day, we’re striving to be 1-0 after every week.”

– Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant on preparing for the Patriots

“For us, his leadership in the locker room and then his play on the field, we know what anytime he has a ball come his way he’s going to make a big catch for us and make a play for us. That’s something you really can’t overlook. It takes a lot of heart and courage to go across the middle and take some of the hits that’s he’s taken so far throughout his career and that energizes our group. That’s make our group stronger. That’s a high bar that he sets for the rest of us to make plays and be accountable to our team.”

– Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills on Danny Amendola

“Some of the things I’ve learned there, I’ll carry forever.”

“I’m just using my preparation skills against them now.”

“I don’t really let things affect me. I could stand here and have every single one of you guys write something terrible about me, and in one ear, out the other. I could have you guys say that I’m the best tight end in the NFL [and it’s] in one ear, out the other. I don’t pay attention to anything. I just focus on my job, my role, my assignment, because at the end of the day, that’s really all that matters.”

– Dolphins rookie tight end Mike Gesicki

“It means everything. This is where I was born and raised. I played a lot of ball out here in this park. They see me a lot. I’m one of the reasons that gives them hope. If I can do it, they can do it. That’s the main thing. That’s why when I do come back, I talk to them. I tell them my story and what I overcame to get here.”

– Dolphins running back and Coconut Grove native Frank Gore on returning to Miami

“I’ve seen a few [roughing calls] that are tough. It’s a tough situation as a defender to be put in. I understand what they’re doing trying to protect quarterbacks. I’ve been on the receiving end of a few of those where you appreciate them trying to take care of you a little bit, but I do see the conflict that it puts a defender in.”

– Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill on the roughing the passer calls 

“It’s not like you can’t hear the crowd. You go out there confident that you’re gonna make that kick but when you start to lose confidence is when you find yourself being inconsistent. You can make that kick but it probably wasn’t as good as it should be.”
