Maimi Dolphins defensive coordinator Vic Fangio was once the head coach of the Denver Broncos. And even though he will be facing off against his former team this week, it doesn’t sound like he’s approaching the game any differently than he would any other game.

During his press conference this week, Vic Fangio made it clear that it’s a nice storyline, but going against the team he once led as a head coach doesn’t actually impact him as much as the media might like to think it does.

I really don’t. Every game we play in this league is equally important,” Fangio said according to Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN. “I enjoyed my time there. There’s still about 15 or 16 players still there and I wish them the best — except this week.”

“[You get] worked up in that stuff, you’ll just get twisted,” Fangio said according to Omar Kelly of “You just treat it like any other game, do the things you think you have to do to win schematically, and you go at it. Those storylines are juicy, but they’re not as effective as you think they are.”

But even if the game isn’t extra meaningful, it’s safe to say that it would be nice to get the win anyway.
