Dolphins Cry Foul

Some of the Miami Dolphins players have expressed their displeasure about their 49-28 loss on Sunday to the Patriots, feeling as though New England poured salt into their 0-7 wound by putting Tom Brady back in with a 21 point fourth quarter lead.

From the Miami Herald:

Some Dolphins players were unhappy about the Patriots throwing with a big lead Sunday. ”Everyone was disappointed with the lack of respect,” Chris Liwienski said. “It’s a kick in the teeth and lacked some class. Enough is enough.”

Coach Belichick was asked about this very subject after the game on Sunday and snapped back at reporters, telling them that the game isn’t over until the final whistle blows.

My Take: I am getting sick and tired of hearing the word “classlessness” coming from other players about the Patriots. The Patriots did the “lights out” dance mocking Shawne Merriman last year, threw popcorn after annihilating T.O. and the previously unbeaten Cowboys and scored their seventh TD of the game against the Dolphins after Matt Cassell threw a pick six to Jason Taylor because they could!
The Dolphins have nothing to complain about. They were embarrassed on their home field because they are probably the worst team in the NFL. They traded away their only decent receiver in Chris Chambers, passed up drafting a franchise QB in Brady Quinn for Ted Ginn Jr. and now with the injury to Ronnie Brown have exactly zero offensive weapons. They are a joke in the NFL and might be the first team since the 70s to go a season without a win. The Pats put Brady back in because miracle comebacks can happen. As Belichick was pointing this out, Houston scored 29 points in the fourth quarter against Tennessee and nearly made one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history.
Stop whining Dolphins.

  1. They are paid professionals like everyone else. This isn’t high school; there are no mercy rules. Plus, as a player, I would think it’s more disrespectful to just stop trying against an opponent than to continue playing. I agree with Belichick, the game can change quickly.
    Basically this is the bottom line, don’t want to get blown out, play better.

  2. I can’t believe a professional athlete actually said that.

    Maybe Miami should just forfeit the rest of their games. That way their feelings wont get hurt anymore. *sniff*
