Mike McDaniel plays down significance of wk 9

Dolphins Head Coach Mike McDaniel has moved to play down the significance of the week 10 matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs in Germany.

“I’ll tell you what’s going to happen with the Miami Dolphins. We lose, we can’t beat good teams. We win, we’re going to win the Super Bowl,” McDaniel. “None of it matters. You have to be your best when your best is required, and that’s when there’s elimination games. So you’re trying to build towards that and take advantage of every opportunity to best service yourself for the situation at end of the season.”

MIKE McDANIEL DEALING WITH EXPECTATIONS

It’s understandable for Mike McDaniel to try and take the pressure off his players, and while he’s not totally wrong, the Dolphins performances in important games over the last two years leaves a lot to be desired. The Dolphins needed to win only one of their last 6 games last season to make the playoffs, and lost at their first 5 attempts.

So far this season the Dolphins are 0-2 against teams with a winning record.

The Dolphins are dealing with injuries along the offensive line, which already suffered from poor depth.

“We still have a day to assess and we’re not going to get ahead of ourselves, but it’s been very encouraging and we feel optimistic, but have to just see how today plays out to make sure that there’s no setbacks,” McDaniel said. “We feel very good about all the offensive linemen we play, and there’s a long season, so we don’t want — there’s no reason for him to be pressing through something that might hurt him in the long run.”
