And the fact that Jason Taylor is a Pittsburgh native made it a little surprising in my opinion. Eitherway, I have heard Porter call out teams in the past and I wasn't hearing many complaints back then. Players talk.

Nothing to misjudge about it. The article was posted last Thursday and the author makes reference to Taylor making the comment on "Wednesday". Also - Taylor specifically mentions a "new coach". Tuck Faylor.

Quote:
As Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor, a Pittsburgh native who is the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, told me Wednesday, "They've got a mess up there. They've got a new coach, players questioning whether he should be there. He's got to find a way to demand some respect. I don't know what to expect, to be honest."

I have to admit I was torqued off when I read about it here as well - as soon as I learned the article was written by Michael Silver, I began to have my doubts whether that is what Taylor actually said at all. Michael Silver is a graduate of the "Skip Bayliss School of Sports Journalism" - yes, IMO, he's that bad.

I'm a King fan myself, so I tend to ignore the likes of Silver and Bayless. Eitherway, if Taylor did in fact make those comments then so be it. That's his opinion. I still respect the guy as a player and person. From all reports he's a classy individual. Although I still find it odd that when Porter opened his mouth while he was sporting the B&G it was passed off as "Awww shucks, it's not a big deal, that's just Joey being Joey. The media needs a story and took his words out of context".

Eitherway, all that matters to me is what happens on November 26.

I agree, 83 - however, I wasn't one of the apologists when he was still sporting B&G either:

Not at all, 83 - I know what you meant, and I agree wholeheartedly. Alot of the same folks that loved it when Joey lipped off (even when it cost the team - example being tossed out of a game during warmups) when he was a Steeler are some of the most vocally against his lipping off now that he's a Dolphin and it's completely hypocritical.

Yes they do.

As a respected elderstateman of the game you would wonder why JT needs to get into that type of stuff now - the Dolphins have enough hurdles this year without pissing the Steelers off!

I always thought Porters stuff was childish - and mostly counterproductive - alot of people point to Jerramy Stevens flop in the SB but he'd been dropping balls for a career way before Joey weighed in with his 2 cents.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

I'm looking foward to the Seahawks & I think we play the Patriots, more. Sure this will be interesting, but eh. Those other two seem more appealing.
