Mike McDaniel on the Dolphins offense: I’ve never seen anyone do what our guys do

Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is putting up MVP numbers in Miami this season, but not everyone thinks Tagovailoa is truly the reason the Dolphins offense is disappearing. Coach Mike McDaniel wasn’t happy about it when asked if his own draft and the Dolphins’ talent around Tagovailoa had more to do with the Dolphins’ success.

When asked if many quarterbacks could do what Tagovailoa does in the Dolphins’ offense, McDaniel began his answer with: “I’m about to surpass that podium.”

McDaniel then said that it doesn’t matter whether it’s Tagovailoa, Tyreek Hill or McDaniel himself who deserves most of the credit, because they all work together to put together a great offense.

“My answer to that question would be who the F cares? Because it’s a team, we work together, and I know one thing: I’ve been coaching a long time, I haven’t seen people do what our guys do,” McDaniel said. “As a teammate, we all depend on each other and I’m not in a hurry to prove myself without these guys because they are part of who we are. To try to say that it is this or that person is to miss the point. It’s a team working together, people working together. Myself, Tyreek Hill, Tua, cool. What if no one blocks? You know what I mean? We are all connected in this way.

McDaniel said he called the same plays in other offenses when he didn’t have the players needed to make the plays work like they do in Miami this year.

“Our players are making a lot of plays that I have a lot of history with, and this looks different,” McDaniel said. “It’s through hard work and incredible ability. So don’t try me on other players.
