The Dolphins fell to 4-6 against the Cowboys in Week 11 and they held a meeting on Monday to discuss the mistakes that contributed to the 24-14 loss.
Coach Dan Campbell said the idea wasn’t to call out players for their errors, but to have them “take ownership” of them and called that accountability a “step in the right direction.”
“We pointed out our errors and guys owned up to them and had a good talk about it,” Campbell said, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. “We always have emotional days after a loss. Guys handled it well. They took ownership. There were enough guys that were frustrated. There is one cure and it’s winning. Things are going to be said that people don’t mean, no matter who you are.”
Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was reportedly one of the most vocal players during the meeting with Jackson reporting that he was “angry and direct and blunt with his teammates” during the discussion. It seems like a stretch to think that a few sharp words are going to change anything about a team that’s consistently proven itself to be mediocre on the field, but the Dolphins will try to prove that assessment wrong against the Jets in Week 12.
