OXNARD, Calif.—Always upbeat, Dolphins offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen is trying to paint the recent disruption to the team’s schedule as a positive. He’s been telling players that getting an extra week because of Hurricane Irma will be an advantage.
He also thinks it’ll help them long term to play 16 straight weeks, now that their bye is gone.
“Sometimes the bye week messes you up,” he said before today’s practice. “There’s something to ‘just keep playing.’ When you mess with the schedule, it messes them up sometimes.”
Here are some other thoughts from Christensen:
–He’s impressed by how quickly Jay Cutler picked up the offense and how smoothly he operates in the no-huddle offense.
–He’s seeing a much more mature Jay Ajayi in every respect, including the way he manages his physical workload.
–On the offensive line, the contingency for Mike Pouncey is to shift left guard Anthony Steen to center and move Jesse Davis into the left guard spot.
