Coach Dave Wannstedt had a lot of praise to pass around the day after the Dolphins' 30-3 victory over the New York Jets, and he had every right to be happy after the much-publicized New York losing streak was finally snapped.

"It was a real good performance across the board." Wannstedt said Monday. "We gave great effort in all three phases."

Wannstedt singled out a couple of players for their performance, among them cornerback Jamar Fletcher.

"Jamar stepped up yesterday," Wannstedt said. "Jamar played good."

The only blemish on Fletcher's stat sheet on Sunday was a pass interference penalty, but he did a solid job overall in coverage.

He also came up big when the Jets ran a reverse with speedy wideout Santana Moss. Fletcher stayed in his lane and stopped Moss after a 5-yard gain.

"On that play, you've got to get him on the ground or it's going to be a big play," Wannstedt said.

Among other items Wannstedt touched on during his day-after press conference:

-- Wannstedt said the Dolphins quickly put behind the victory over the Jets, no matter how satisfying it might have been. "That's behind us now. We have a big challenge against Kansas City, and that's where our focus has to be. We've got our hands full this week. We're not even going to show the Jets game film. We're going to get into Kansas City.

-- Olindo Mare's missed field goal attempt at the end of the first half was no cause for concern for Wannstedt, who told Mare at halftime to just get ready to kick a game-winning field goal. That's because Wannstedt said he expected all along that the game would come down to the final minutes.

-- Wannstedt was asked if Oronde Gadsden's eye-popping catch in the first half was the best he had ever seen. "That's right there," Wannstedt said. "Of the five best catches I've seen, Oronde's probably got three of them. That was really a clutch play." When someone jokingly mentioned that Wannstedt's comments would offend Michael Irvin, Wannstedt quickly shot back: "Michael's got the other two."

-- The Dolphins' injury situation could get better this week, although linebacker Twan Russell will be out for a while after undergoing athroscopic knee surgery on Monday. Outside of him, Wannstedt said the Dolphins would see on Wednesday whether Scott McGarrahan and Patrick Surtain can return to practice. CB Omare Lowe is now at full speed and should practice all week.
