  Dolphins credit Gase, staff for resurgence

It was an outstanding season for the Miami Dolphins, who finished with a surprising 10-6 record and earned their first playoff berth since 2008.

Across the board, players credit first-year coach Adam Gase and his coaching staff for the turnaround.

"I think it was great," center Mike Pouncey said of the season. "We started over. We got new coaches in and they did a great job with us this year."

The Dolphins say there's been a significant culture change on and off the field, and say that helps explains why they recovered from a 1-4 start to go on a six-game winning streak and finish the regular season by winning nine of their final 11 games.

As the Dolphins look ahead the future seems bright, especially on offense where players such as Pouncey, quarterback Ryan Tannehill, running back Jay Ajayi and wide receivers Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker return.

Defensively, Miami must rebuild around defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, defensive end Cam Wake and strong safety Reshad Jones.

Under Gase's leadership and competitive disposition, expect the Dolphins to have lofty goals next season beating New England for the AFC East title and making an extended playoff run.
