Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey has vowed to learn from his late-game outburst that saw him go viral after the team’s 21-19 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
A video clip that emerged after the loss showed Dorsey in the away coach’s booth furiously tearing off his headset and violently bouncing it off the table, along with game notes and computer equipment. his board.
Dorsey exploded after the Bills couldn’t line up fast enough to hit the ball and stopped the clock to catch one more game at the end of allotted time to try to overturn their two-point shortfall.
It was just one of many missteps due to Sunday’s Bills violation, with quarterback Josh Allen losing a fumble within their own 10-yard line in their second possession, as well as mishandling. a moment before half-time lost the chance to play. target. In special teams, striker Tyler Bass also missed with a 38-meter shot in the fourth half.
Speaking to reporters on Monday, Dorsey appeared to regret letting his emotions affect him. “It’s a tense game, it’s a passionate game,” he said.
“I’m in the box watching my guys down there give us everything they can in them, with the end-to-end effort of playing 90-something in the game. Obviously, they are. I didn’t win in the end, so it was annoying and I reacted that way.”
Dorsey added: “We’re human, and that’s what happens. I never wanted to take the passion out of the game.
“And we go into this game to win football games for the Bills, for our fans. But obviously that’s something I’ll learn from and make sure to fix in the future. .”
Bills head coach Sean McDermott took a diplomatic approach to Dorsey’s outburst, adding that they discussed the matter internally.
“I think that says a lot about him as a coach and how hard he works, and how important it is to him,” McDermott said.
“But that said, it’s important for us as leaders to stay ready and that we model for our players.”
The Bills players have frequently mentioned Dorsey’s extreme competitive nature since he was promoted from the role of quarterback coach replacing Brian Daboll in the OC position after he was hired as coach. New York Giants trainer in January.

Center Mitch Morse, meanwhile, said of his outburst: “You don’t want to be on the other end of it because it can be cruel. It was never malice. He just wanted us to succeed. too bad.”
Dorsey has previously dismissed questions about his volatile personality by calling the descriptions exaggerated. “I like to think that I’m not a psychopath too much,” he said in August. “Like, I feel like I’ve been turned into one.
“It’s a passionate game. It’s going to be one of those things; I want to do what’s best for the team and what’s best for me.
“But maybe it wouldn’t hurt to stay inside [coaches’] related to that issue. “
