A few of the Dolphins players have actually admitted that they’re glad to be playing indoors and are out of the elements. Surprisingly though, it’s been the players on defense. Their play is less affected by the weather than the offense, but apparently the cold alone has its own effect on some of these guys.
“You talk about the elements; certainly being down here in South Florida is different,” said DE Vonnie Holliday. “This is a cold day for us. When you’re in Buffalo, you never know what you’re going to get. You’re losing that wind, losing the possibility of snow, some rain, you just never know with the outside elements. When I looked at the schedule and saw that we were going to be indoors in Toronto, you have to be excited and happy about that because looking at the end of the schedule, Kansas City, the Jets and possibly Buffalo at Buffalo, it was ugly. That was certainly some light and the end of that tunnel when you’re talking about going indoors.”
So as much as some of the Miami players have downplayed, some are being honest and are relieved the game is under a roof.
