Miami Dolphins Players Credo Is Strikingly Similar to US Army's Soldier's Creed

Tyler Brooke@TylerDBrookeSenior Analyst IIAugust 3, 2014

After enduring a 2013 season that involved major off-the-field distractions, the Miami Dolphins have adopted a new credo for the team to live by. It seems quite similar to the one the Army uses.

The new Dolphins credo isn't an exact copy, but there are clearly some similar phrases, including, "I will never accept defeat," "I will never quit" and "I am a professional." You can see the entire Soldier's Creed below.

Still, the players and coaches all seem to be very excited about it. Defensive star Cameron Wake talked about the credo, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, saying:

If you go around any locker room, they’ll have all the mantras and the sayings. From my experience, it’s been coach-driven, what they want the team statement to be. He said it should come from you guys. We sat down as a group of men, teammates, brothers and came up with a group of statements about what the Dolphins are and should be.

The credo may have copied some aspects of the Army's creed, but if it means that the team will limit the off-field distractions, I doubt anyone will be complaining.
