Dolphins head coach encourages players to be thankful as they prepare for Eagles

Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores says he has a lot to be thankful for and is looking forward to spending Thanksgiving with his family.

Meanwhile, he’s encouraging his other family, the Miami Dolphins players, to look on the bright side of a 2-9 season so far. As they prepared for the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday, Flores suggested to them that they take a moment or two to appreciate those closest to them.

“It’s a great opportunity for you, instead of going on Instagram or Twitter, to write a note to somebody who’s done a lot for you,” said Flores. (Like a) mentor, a coach, your girlfriend, your wife, your kids, your parents. It’s Thanksgiving. We all have a lot to be thankful for.”

The Dolphins and Eagles kick off at 1 p.m. this Sunday. All of the action and reaction is on Fins Fever Final on Sunday at 11:30 on CBS12 News.
