The Miami Dolphins parted ways with defensive coordinator Josh Boyer shortly after the end of the 2022 season. In February 2023, veteran NFL coach Vic Fangio was hired as Boyer’s replacement.

Fangio is known for helping develop the two-deep safety look used by teams in recent years to combat high-powered aerial attacks.

Miami’s defense gave up an average of 318.3 yards per game under Fangio and finished the regular season ranked 10th in total defense.

Despite what some saw as a successful first season, Fangio and the Dolphins parted ways last month. The 65-year-old was later named the Eagles’ defensive coordinator.

Earlier this week, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported that the Dolphins told star defensive back Xavien Howard he would be released at the start of the new league year.

Jalen Ramsey, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection and Howard’s defensive partner in the backfield, was unhappy with Howard’s impending departure.

Ramsey took to social media to express his feelings, seemingly attacking Fangio in the process.

“I will never forgive the friend for not using all our skills!” Ramsey said on X, formerly Twitter.

The Dolphins’ defensive philosophy seemed to change under Fangio. The team primarily used zone coverage last season, while more than 45% of the Dolphins’ defensive plays were man coverage in the years before Fangio arrived.

It seems Ramsey believes a scheme that placed more emphasis on man coverage could have better highlighted his and Howard’s abilities.

Ramsey is the latest player on the Dolphins roster to apparently try to attack Fangio since Fangio’s departure was announced.

Longtime NFL agent Drew Rosenhaus, who represented several Dolphins players last season, said there were “quite a few players” who didn’t like Fangio’s coaching style.

“There were quite a few players on the team that didn’t necessarily get along with Fangio, so it wasn’t a great relationship with a lot of the players,” Rosenhaus told WSVN-TV. “There were some guys who loved him, but some guys didn’t.”
