Flores tries to stay upbeat despite 0-4 start

Dolphins get much needed bye week, then much needed bad opponent

DAVIE, Fla. – Brian Flores is trying to stay upbeat as the Dolphins hit the bye week.

Miami has started the season 0-4.

Flores said, "Obviously there's some disappointment in how we started," Flores said. "We can feel some opportunity, possibility of things going different."

The Dolphins have not scored a second-half point so far this season.

Miami was down 17-10 at the half Sunday before losing 30-10.

"It's a 60-minute ballgame," Flores said. "We need to find a way to put a 60-minute game together."

Flores did say that there have been some positives over the last two weeks, but it's simply not good enough.

The good news for the Dolphins is they face 0-4 Washington following the bye.

As for what he'll do during their time off, Flores said that's up to his wife.

If he had his choice, Flores would stay at the facility, but he knows that will not be an option.
