Dolphins' Porter says Miami, New England don't like each other
ESPN.com news services

Joey Porter is getting into trash-talk mode, and for the first time in a while, the game actually matters.

On the eve of the Miami Dolphins game against the New England Patriots, the linebacker said that there's no love lost between the teams.

"We don't like them," Porter said, according to The Associated Press. "They don't like us."

Porter leads the league in sacks for a Miami team that has won four games in a row. The Dolphins and Patriots are both 6-4, one game behind the first-place New York Jets in the AFC East.

Porter said that the Patriots have been disrespectful to the Dolphins the last two times the teams have met.

In Miami's September upset at New England, Porters said that the Dolphins' pregame stretching was interrupted by the Patriots walking through that part of the field.

"They let us know how they feel about us," Porter said, according to AP. "Then they start punting over our heads -- like, you want the whole 100-yard field? You don't do that."

Porter also said that the Patriots ran Laurence Maroney four straight times in the final two minutes of a December matchup with New England up 28-7. He thought quarterback Tom Brady would take a knee.

"I don't forget things like that," Porter said, according to AP. "I hope our whole defense and our whole team doesn't forget things like that."

Dolphins coach Tony Sparano downplayed the hype but said that the team knows that winning the division crown goes through New England.

"My message to the players is that if you walk through the door on Wednesday and your heart's not racing a million miles an hour, then you don't have a pulse," Sparano said, according to AP. "This is why we do what we do. We put ourselves in position to have a big game at home at the end of November. That's where we are. That being said, I don't think too much has to be said this week."

I'm having trouble imagining it could be ANY more than the Harrison/Woodley combo we have right now!

I miss him for him winding everyone up... but I like what we have for linebackers! :drink:

Warren Sapp liked to do that to us too. He regretted it each time.

I love Joey Porter and I hope they all back him up on Sunday. :drink:

Yeah isn't that suppose to be a penalty now? Refs must have been looking the other way for that one too.

I guess crossing the "demilitarized zone" in the middle of the field is, but who's to stop them when they first come out?

Are you kidding me? Porter is leading the league in sacs and is on track to break Strahans record for most sacs in a season. Can you imagine the terror having the #1 and #2 linebackers in the league competing against one another to destroy the quarterback?
