What They're Saying: Miami Dolphins

[wysifield-embeddedaudio|eid="374651"|type="embeddedaudio"|view_mode="full"]On the Patriots secondary...
"You never know how they're going to play, they always find something and try to take it away from you, that's just kind of their mindset whether it's a different coverage than what they normally run or doubling somebody. You always have to be on your toes to adjust to whatever they're throwing at you. We're definitely preparing for them to double somebody; we don't know exactly who it's going to be at this point."
- Dolphins Quarterback Ryan Tannehill

[wysifield-embeddedaudio|eid="374656"|type="embeddedaudio"|view_mode="full"]On Bill Belichick...
"Bill Belichick is one of the greatest coaches that's ever coached; I mean, that's just the bottom line. He is better than anybody at finding those mismatches, taking away your best players. And he's always been this way. You say, 'Look, if you're going to beat us, you're not going to beat us with your impact players.' That's what he's done, that's how he's always done it. It's a heck of a recipe; it's worked. So I don't look at it it's me versus him. This is the Miami Dolphins versus the New England Patriots." 
- Dolphins Interim Head Coach Dan Campbell

On challenge of stopping the Patriots offense...
"They execute, they find ways to win games and that's something that they obviously pride themselves on and something as a defensive line we got to get after their quarterback and try to get him off his spot and out of rhythm. They're a big rhythm team; I've had some success against them in the past and it's all about getting after their quarterback."
- Dolphins Defensive Tackle Ndamukong Suh

On respect for Tom Brady...
"I definitely have a lot of respect for him.  I think we've come across each other every single year that I've been in the league and had good interactions; obviously played against him in preseason games, regular season games and I've always enjoyed going against a great competitor like him."
- Dolphins Defensive Tackle Ndamukong Suh

On playing the Patriots on Thursday night...
"We can't wait to get out there on Thursday Night Football in front of the whole world and go out there and play in a division game against a really good football team."
- Dolphins Center Mike Pouncey

On Jamie Collins and Dont'a Hightower
"They're big, strong and physical linebackers, really good players. I have a ton of respect for them both, they can both do it all, drop in pass coverage, you'll see Collins a lot covering running backs out of the backfield and for a really big linebacker he does a great job just with his freakish athleticism of covering running backs. They both rush the passer well, whether it's on the inside or the outside, whether they're matched up on a tackle or a running back, they both do a good job of finding a way to get to the quarterback." 
- Dolphins Quarterback Ryan Tannehill
