    Griese

    Griese might remain No. 1 with Dolphins

    By STEVEN WINE, AP Sports Writer
    October 29, 2003
    DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- Brian Griese's promotion might be permanent.

    Miami Dolphins coach Dave Wannstedt said Tuesday he hadn't decided whether to stay with Griese in Sunday's AFC showdown against the Indianapolis Colts. But Wannstedt was pleased with the way Griese sparked Miami's sputtering offense in his first start, a 26-10 victory over San Diego on Monday night.

    Replacing an injured Jay Fiedler, Griese threw for 192 yards and three touchdowns with no turnovers.


    ``Brian played really well,'' Wannstedt said. ``He made good decisions, got rid of the ball and was really into the game. He was in tune to what they were doing and what we were trying to do.''

    The health of the two quarterbacks might determine which one starts Sunday.

    Fiedler, who sprained his left knee in a loss to New England on Oct. 19, dressed Monday night but was designated the No. 3 quarterback. Griese had a little swelling in his right thumb after the victory, although Wannstedt said he didn't believe the injury is serious.

    Several comments by the coach suggested he's leaning toward starting Griese again. Wannstedt said a starter knocked out of the lineup by an injury -- Fiedler, for instance -- isn't assured of keeping his job.

    ``We do what's best for the team,'' Wannstedt said.

    He said Griese releases the ball more quickly than Fiedler, an advantage once Miami's receivers adjust their timing.

    ``You saw two or three routes where the receiver wasn't quite ready,'' Wannstedt said. ``You put that on the receiver. He's got to anticipate it's going to be out quicker with Brian than it is with Jay.''

    Wannstedt also said he expects Griese to be even better with a start under his belt. The game was his first since being sidelined during the exhibition season by a toe injury.

    ``If he plays this week, you would like to believe he would be more comfortable than he was,'' Wannstedt said. ``And it being a home game should help.''

    The Dolphins (5-2) play three of their next four games in Miami, beginning with Indianapolis (6-1).

    Miami players had Tuesday off after the team returned to South Florida at 6 a.m. The game against the Chargers was played in Tempe, Ariz., because fires in Southern California forced it to be moved from San Diego.

    Griese threw first-half touchdown passes of 5 yards to Chris Chambers, 2 yards to James McKnight and 7 yards to Randy McMichael. He finished 20-for-29 and at least three passes were dropped.

    ``It was pretty special,'' Griese said. ``I wanted to contribute to the team in some way, shape or form, and I had the opportunity to go out there and play. I felt great. It was exciting. On Monday night football, I don't think I could ask for anything more.''

    Griese's first pass went for a touchdown. His first six passes were complete. His only incomplete pass in the first half was dropped. By halftime the score was 24-3.

    For the Dolphins, it was the best performance by a quarterback named Griese since at least 1980. That year Brian's father, Bob, ended his Hall of Fame career with the Dolphins.

    The younger Griese benefited from good field position, thanks to three interceptions by the Dolphins, and he enjoyed excellent protection against a defense ranked 28th in the NFL. Still, the offense clicked in a way it hasn't with Fiedler, who has thrown five interceptions and just two touchdown passes in his past four games.

    The Dolphins are 33-15 with Fiedler starting, but he has led them to only one postseason victory since succeeding Dan Marino in 2000.

    Greise does not have exceptional athletic ability, so he needs to be the player that uses his brain to win games. Unfortuantely for the Broncos, he has not been able to remain consistently focused either on or off the field. He has the potential to be a great QB, but it seems like he lacks the drive & enthusiasm it will take for him to take the next step. Maybe the change of scenery wil
    l do him some good.
    I agree totally. Brian does not have the athletic ability to be one of the greats. He certainly does not show any spark. He let his ego get the best of him with Mr. Shanahan.

    I don't mean to attack the guy but he seems be the brittlest qb in football and like you CA would not want him on the Broncos bench.

    Didn't Griese say something like "this is the game that will define my career." before his last Raider game? I can't remember exactly what he said, but it was definitely a "foot-in-the-mouth" quote. And to make things worse for him, I think I remember him getting benched for Beurline, and Beurline came in and did a decent job.

    I think Bob is proud of his son. It might be hard for him to see his son's short comings as a qb though.
