One of the most enjoyable parts of the 2016 season for the Daily Dolphin was conducting some get-to-know-you Q&A’s with Miami Dolphins players.
Here are some of the best lines from those interviews, along with easy links in case you missed some or all of these last season:
Q: What is it like when you’re in a game and you know that a defensive back knows that he can’t cover you?
Jarvis Landry: “That’s like every game for me.”
Q: Toughest teammate you’ve ever had?
Q: Which teammate has more strength than people realize?
Kenny Stills: “Ryan (Tannehill) is one of the strongest guys on the team. In every category, he’s strong. He is a beast.”
Q: What would you do if you were not a professional athlete?
Kenyan Drake: “Astronaut. Space exploration. Astronomy. Astronautical engineering.”
Q: Which player could drag a 12-foot Christmas tree the furthest in five minutes?
Ja’Wuan James: “I would say (Ndamukong) Suh. He’s a strong guy. He does a lot of weird workouts. I could see him pulling a Christmas tree 10 miles.”
Q: Who would finish 1-2-3 in a Miami Dolphins 40-yard dash 10 minutes from now on the practice field?
Jakeem Grant: “Me at one. At two, (Kenyan) Drake. Three, maybe Kenny Stills. I will say, Lafayette Pitts has showed me he is fast. I have seen the tape. I have seen him chasing Kenny Stills. He shocked me he’s so fast.”
Q: Who is your toughest teammate?
Laremy Tunsil: “(Jermon) Bushrod. Hands down. He’s a savage man. Hasn’t missed a snap yet. A lot of respect to that guy. Who has been battling. He’s a vet. Imagine how your body feels after 10 years. He hasn’t missed a down. Hasn’t missed a snap. Hasn’t missed a practice. Even training camp. That’s a lot of respect to him.”
Q: At what time on what day after a typical Sunday afternoon game does your body feel good?
Jermon Bushrod: “(Long pause). Probably a week after the season’s done. (Long laugh.) And that’s the truth. Ehh. I start coming around about Wednesday, Thursday.”
Q: What three words you would use to describe coach Adam Gase?
Michael Thomas: “Strategic. Motivated. Relatable.”
