The Miami Dolphins are set to head into Foxborough, Mass with an 0-2 record
and swirling questions. Apparently, that doesn’t mean that one Joey Porter can sit on his duff and realize that talking out of the cheeks of his rear will do this team no good. About the only thing that the overpaid and underplaying oft injured LB has done, is give the New England Patriots and QB Matt Cassel something for their bulletin board. If of course they can stop laughing long enough to put it up.
“It will be good to go out and get our first victory” Porter said to reporters on Wednesday. ”I just know [Cassel] is not a Tom Brady”.
Perhaps the back spasmed LB was talking through a pain killing induced delirium. While those comments are far from being overly critical, he couldn’t just leave it there. No, this is Joey Porter and as silent as he has been on the field, it was only a matter of time before he opened his yap off it.
“If it’s not Tom Brady, it shouldn’t be that hard. . . . They won last week, but it’s not like they were putting up the crazy 40 points they were when they had Tom.
“So, it’s a different offense, it’s a different team without Tom there. I don’t care what anybody says. It’s not the same team without Brady.”
Not like they put 40 points? No, but last week the Dolphins gave up 31 in what seemed like the first half of the Cardinal game. The Arizona Cardinals may have Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin, but the Patriots still have Randy Moss and Wes Welker. Not exactly a bunch of useless WR’s like say, I don’t know, Derek Hagan and Ernest Wilford.
The fact is that this team, especially Joey Porter who has been nothing short of a monumental free agent error should be talking smack about anything or anyone. The New England Patriots are already trying to prove that they can win without Tom Brady. Last week they put down the team that was supposed to inherit the division…the overspent New York Jets.
So when the Patriots get done laughing about the comments of J-Peezy, they will surely be ripe now for a lesson in humility.
