“That’s why I own the Dolphins and wanted to own the Dolphins—to bring back to Miami a consistently winning team.” — Stephen Ross, owner
“The will to prepare, the guts to risk, and the desire to be the best. These are trademarks of champions.” — Dan Marino
“I’ve been a Dolphin for 17 years, and I’ll be a Dolphin for the rest of my life. That will never change.” — Dan Marino
“I come from a spirit of love, and I aim to unite—not divide.” — Jelani Jenkins, linebacker
“The scoreboard can’t make you a loser. If you walk off the field with your head up, you don’t lose.” — Dan Marino
