Lost in the shuffle in the highlights of the Dolphins incredible win versus the Colts, is the play of Charles Clay. Sure Mike Wallace stole headlines with his 9 catch performance, but Clay delivered early jabs at the Colts until delivering the go ahead score running the ball as a full back.
In an interview with Joe Rose on Monday morning: Charles Clay made two comments that should give the Dolphins fans confidence in their team
First, when faced with the prospects of Dustin Keller going down with a tragic knee injury Clay responded to Joe Rose of WQAM:
"Can't get too down and got to stay even keel...focusing on the play at hand."
On if Clay runs and carries the ball in practice: Basicially, since this coaching staff arrived, they wanted him to not get "too rusty carrying the football."
Here's the thing, Clay right now at this juncture of the season is playing like a playmaking tight end and is showing he can be every bit as good as Keller.
For one, Charles clay is no stranger to criticism after a lackluster effort in training camp a season ago. In fact, since cameras were allowed to see offensive coordinator Mike Sherman berate him, he's come a long way. Today, when Joe Rose of WQAM posed this question, Clay responded very matter of factly that "Coach Sherman wanted to see" what could make him better. Of course, he laughed when saying it and that shows he is learning to handle things well and take them in stride.no comments
