He had one of the best games that I've seen from a Dolphins punter. He was key to our win on Sunday. Hopefully he will get less opportunities to shine if our offense can move the ball more consistently leaving him watching on the bench.

So this is a different kind of feeling: The Dolphins are 2-0, coming off a victory over the Jets that was in no small part due to Haack, who punted six times and dropped five inside New York’s 20-yard line.
“The way I look at it is, that’s my job,” Haack said of the usual you-can’t-win benefits — if you want to call it that — of being an NFL punter.
In Week 1, the Dolphins had the AFC’s special teams player of the week in Jakeem Grant, who returned a kickoff for a touchdown. Now they have a contender to make it two straight for Miami.
Coach Adam Gase said it’s “phenomenal” to nail five of six punts inside the opponent’s 20.
“To make a rookie quarterback drive 80-plus yards every time in his second game, that’s what you want to do,” Gase said.
