As happy as I am to see the Jets lose, did anyone see JT's postgame presser? He was just about in tears, you can tell he wanted this so bad, felt terrible for such a great player.
He is at the very end of the presser if you want to watch.

Hell no I don't feel sorry for him. He needs to go get some education in class from ZT. "He is so happy to be a Jet". Well, retire a Jet without a ring. Screw that dude, it was always about him.

Sorry, but I have a hard time feeling bad for him as I am sure most Dolphin fans do.

Maybe in a few years I can let go of this grudge I have against him for becoming a Jet, and feel badly for him. Honestly, today I simply relished the loss. I feel a little bad for LT too. It's always sad when players just can't quite make it to the big one. JT is passionate about this sport, probably moreso than most other players, and he'll be remembered for that.

Honestly, that was a great moment for me, seeing him about to cry. It was right up there with Rex Ryan throwing down his headset when the Steelers converted the 3rd and 6 with under 2:00 left to go. I rewound them like ten times each. Great night. What's even better, he only had two tackles contributed all game and ZERO impact plays. Screw JT.

GO PHINS~!

Today made the season for me. Seeing Rex Ryan throw down his headset like that was PRICELESS. As for JT...well, he could have gone elsewhere. The Jets were almost surely not the only team willing to sign him. I bet the Steelers or Packers would have considered him. So screw JT for trying to "stick it to us," or whatever went through his mind in 2010. He traded his goodwill in South Florida for only a relatively meager contract in New York City. Did he really say this was the toughest loss of his career? How about letting down Marino and JJ in that 62-7 debacle? Good luck in Hollywood, dreamer.

Anyway, the Jets are not going to be back next year. This year was their going-all-in-shot and they came up short. Rex and Co. will prove to be a flash in the pan. The Patriots will be the serious competition for us next season and beyond.

Honestly I couldn't watch that and not feel bad for him, even though I do hate him for going to the Jets. You can tell how bad he wants a ring. If it were any damn team that weren't in the AFC East, I'd root for him. But here, while he's on that team, I just can't.

I usually feel bad for Vets with potential Hall of Fame careers when they get this close and fail. You know deep down that they have worked their entire life for that one moment. But JT has been at the back of my book, even when he was a fin, I just never liked him. And going to the Jets was just a bad idea on his part. I don't know if he had other options or not. But a Jet. Come on JT. From what I seen from him today his days are numbered. Guess we will see if he comes crawling back...

I don't feel sorry for him now. I do feel sorry for JT and Thomas, Madison, Ricky, etc. that the Dolphins never found a great QB/coach to get that amazing dolphins defense a Super Bowl opportunity back in 2000-2003.

I don't see him as a "traitor" because I blame overrated Parcells, who bailed on us after 2 years for what happened. JT wanted to play and would have played for the Dolphins if they showed interest. They didn't, the Jets gave him a great amount of money, whatever. He'll go into the Hall as a Dolphin and that's that. I'm glad he lost with the Jets though regardless of what Parcells did.

Come on man this is over the top. I can understand the sentiment many fans share but to me this is just overboard but your entitled to your opinon i suppose.

Personally I love JT. Do I wish he woulda ended his career in miami? Hell yes. Do i understand why he didnt? yes. Would I have made the same decison? I dont think so, however we dont know all the details.

Regardless of this year Jason Taylor is one of the greatest Dolphins of all-time and a sure fire Ring of Honor inductee. And all of this coming from the BIGGEST JETS HATER AROUND!!! Believe me!

I don't feel bad for a selfish player.

He plays his whole career with one team, then leaves off a rough year, comes back when they have a good year, and then leaves again to the bitter arch rival to try and win a ring in 1 season? He can cry all he wants.

You saw ZT said he would not have played with the pats. Loyalty. Jason is all about jason.

If my younger brother played for the Dolphins, then got let go, and went to the Jets, I think it would be fine to want him to win the superbowl.
So it is just a matter of asking "when would it not be OK".
I have to say I was torn, I did not want to watch Rotten-burger go to the Superbowl again, so I didn't care if the Jets would have came back.
But, certainly don't feel sorry for JT or LT. And it was great to see Ryan fail. His hype will only work so many times. Their Playoff story will be worse next year.

Totally acting job for a contract. He is such a knob.

JT is a drama queen.
And his creamy boasting of the Jets org is a slap to our heritage in miami, even though our org has sucked in recent years, it sits poorly with me.

Sorry for him?Not at all, actually i felt very happy.See, if he had won and went to the superbowl, he would have said something like "that's why I quit on those loser dolphins, so I could finally go to a superbowl on a great team like the jets".Now he is forced to realize that going to the jets won't help him fulfill his dream, and he will probably retire without a ring.How could I feel sorry for that?

jlfin
01-24-2011, 07:29 AM
First of all, he is a very good player , NOT great. That is supported by his career post season stats. He has never been a game changer in a big game.
Marino is the only Dolphin player who I feel sorry for because he carried this team for several years on his shoulders.
I can recall many playoff seasons in which this team would have been lucky to even go .500 were it not for Marino. When I see guys like Brady and Roethlisberger getting accolades for winning multiple SB's and Marino being criticized for not, it makes me angy because he was much better than either of them.

01-24-2011, 07:35 AM
Man this thread redeemed my faith in mankind. I mean when I saw the title I worried Dolphin fans had lost their moral compass.

This sleaze bag - JT put a huge knife in the collective back of ALL Dolphin fans everywhere.

He could not wait to fly up to NY and sign with the Jets of all teams to end his career.

Call it business - fine. It's ALL business! And to me its my business to go to Duncan Donuts today and buy a CELEBRATE the Jets and JT (and LT) losing Donut - Probably like a chocolate donut with cream filling or a maybe a glazed Donut. IDK I'll have to think about it!

JT went with the Jets because they were the only team that would sign him, it was the jets or sit at home this season, and to be honest, JT is more upset that that could be his LAST game in the NFL more than just losing a AFC Campionship game. He knows his career is about done.

JT tried everything he could to stay with the Fin's, the FO did not want him plain and simple, Man has to feed his family, I don't blame him for what he did. You don't let pride get in the way of taking care of your family.

I can't think of one time during Jason Taylor's entire career that he dominated a important game or a playoff game. In fact, it was just the opposite. He was a non-factor in almost every single one of them. He was one of the biggest reasons the defenses he was part of in Miami were such a disappointment every time they made the playoffs or were fighting to get in them. The defense just didn't show up, and Jason Taylor was one of the biggest culprits of their meltdowns. Just like in Miami, J.T. was a non factor for the Jets when they needed him most.

I HATE when professional athletes used this bs phrase. It is a slap in the face to everyone, who wakes up at 6 in the morning and works all day for a pay check. It is an insult tp people with out jobs actually struggng to feed their families. JT plays a GAME for a living and had made MILLIONS of dollars in the process. If he retired with some class and remained loyal, would his children have straved in the streets? Only thing that pisses me off more is fans who make a fraction of that these guys make actually making this ridiculous arguement.

I have no loyalty to my employer because they have no loyalty to me. And you have no loyalty to your employer either because as soon as a better opportunity comes along, you'll bail on your company just like Jason Taylor bailed on his.

I have no sympathy for the Jets and I have no sympathy for Jason Taylor. That's the business of the NFL. Good for Jason for going out and joining a better team with an opportunity to compete for a ring. That's what it's all about...but I'm glad they lost.

You know, I have said it before. Jason Taylor is one of my all time favorite Dolphins players, and I will always view him as a Dolphin. But when you put all your "eggs in one basket" like that, it's hard to feel bad for someone when they drop the basket.

Don't get me wrong, the Jets were the only other team to offer him a contract. But we all know that he signed on with them for two reasons. One, he wasn't ready to retire(some will say it was for money). And two, he thought he had the best chance at making a Super Bowl with the Jets. But I do not feel sorry for him that he didn't make it into the Super Bowl. Just like I don't feel bad that Tomlinson didn't make it either. I know the media seems to be trying to spin up some sympathy for the older players on the Jets, but again I don't feel bad for them because they didn't make it to the Super Bowl.

Some of you are crazy lol.

Look, I don't feel bad for the guy . . . he joined a hated rival and I wanted them to lose last night . . . feeling sympathy for him was lost when he put on that green and white uniform. However, I don't hate JT . . . some of these "burn in hell" comments are just overboard. There would be much more hate towards him if the Fins actually offered him a contract and he declined us to play with the Jets, that is not the case, and I can't knock a man for not begging and pleading with the Fins to offer him a contract and actually going to another team who did offer him a contract, even if it is the Jets.

Trying to discredit his solid play with the Dolphins because he is a Jet now is just comical, JT was a great player for this team for years . . . a face of this defense and former DPOY . . . he is getting older now, and he wanted to win a ring . . . meaning he wanted to still play. Nobody knows if Miami offered him a contract would he have stayed but clearly he wanted to continue playing and the Jets offered him a deal and he took it.

Now I'm not sure if his motives were to say FU to the Dolphins, or further his acting career, or whatever . . . but to trash this man like he is being trashed in this thread is a bit much.

Good Point, I wouldn't bet against that happening.

But even with this back history of JT, I wonder why people like Ricky Williams more than him (or atleast is seems that way) . . . JT did far more for this organization, and Ricky quit on this team when we needed him more than ever.

I guess if Cam Newton transferred to Alabama instead of going into the draft, he would be hated by Auburn as well, so I understand.

I just don't know why he's deemed "worthy" of a Super Bowl. Last night, in probably his last chance at a ring, he had a grand total of two tackles, that's it. No sacks, fumbles, interceptions, nothing but two tackles. Fits right in with the rest of his illustrious career in aqua where he simply vanished in playoff games. So I don't know why he deserves to be on a team that carries him to a Super Bowl ring. He's had his chances and done nothing with them.

I also don't know why being on the team that wins a Super Bowl, in a season where you've done nothing to actually get said team to the Super Bowl (much less win it), should be the factor which finally pushes Taylor into the Hall of Fame. He either deserves to be there for his exploits in his prime, or he doesn't. I don't think he deserves it. He was, like the rest of JJ's defense, overrated.

Side note - How are the Jets stacked for next year? Are they in any kind of salary cap trouble or do they have any free agent issues looming? Just curious if they will be as good this coming season.

Agreed, but being that he still wanted to play, and Miami never really offered him a contract and the Jets did, what did u expect him to do?

He was a FA and I though he maintained that he wanted to stay in Miami. I dunno, so many stories out there who knows what the real case was. Ricky quit after we mortgaged our future for him, causing us to draft Ronnie and possibly passing up on Aaron Rodgers. I will never forget what he did to us.

Not sure why anybody would feel bad for JT. Going somewhere else in an attempt to win a Superbowl in the late stages of a career is one thing but to go to a rival, after he himself declared 'I hate the Jets and their fans', is ridiculous. Thurman Thomas came to us after a stunning career in Buffalo. But he never declared 'I hate the Dolphins and their fans'. Yet I am sure the Bills fans feel or felt the same way about TT as we do about JT.

JT not only took the business side (money) into consideration when he made that move. He was trying to stick it to us. In my opinion, JT is a football mercenary of the worst kind. I could care less what happens to him in the future as long as he doesn't win the big one. As a matter of fact, I have forgotten most of his good plays he made for us. I treat him as a football player without any loyalty and worse, a football player who seeks revenge on his former employer and its fan base.

I certainly hope that he will never be on the Ring of Fame. If he is: I get balloons filled with paint and make sure that it will be unreadable.

Also by the way there are PLENTY of pro atletes that after their careers are done do go broke, mainly from medical bills to try to repair their wreaked bodies. Very few like the Phil Simm's and the like are able to keep their millions rolling in once their playing days are done.

What Rex has softened his "we are going to the superbowl" rubbercheck writing to we have a "goal" to get to the SB - I'm disappointed

I still remember Tony Boselli backpedaling toward the endzone while taunting JT following a big TD play for the Jags.
The elite LT's in the game usually DOMINATED him. Watch video of him against the likes of Boselli, Ogden etc. He was stonewalled in nearly every game.

JT went with the Jets because they were the only team that would sign him, it was the jets or sit at home this season, and to be honest, JT is more upset that that could be his LAST game in the NFL more than just losing a AFC Campionship game. He knows his career is about done.

JT tried everything he could to stay with the Fin's, the FO did not want him plain and simple, Man has to feed his family, I don't blame him for what he did. You don't let pride get in the way of taking care of your family.

I hate that "they have to feed there family ****." They made millions they should have problems feeding there families.

**** I make 120k and I have no problem feeding my family & buying them whatever they want.

Hate the argument. (no offense to you Orlando)

Seriously, this has to be one of the dumbest most overused excuses ever made concerning a pro athlete going to a rival team. Has to feed his family? Seriously? With the amount of money JT has made over his career I highly doubt for one second that they are having to pinch their wallets to make ends meet. Also hell no I dont feel sorry for him, fell out of my chair laughing everytime they cut to Jason on the sidelines with his head down in dispair, and the interview afterwards is priceless.

JT proved what a POS he is last night trtimg to jump over the oline when they were kneeling....that made my evening to see his desperation....I laughed so hard......JT always had his biggest games when they meant the least....the way I look at it he was never a Miami dolphin

To the people saying we never offered him a contract, well we offered him one in November he wouldnt sign it...And to just say hey wait until training camp and we will see were we are and discuss from there isnt not wanting him back...Our D was GOOD without him last year...Cam Wake did a GREAT job of making me forget we ever had a #99 playing on our team...I hope he dosent get into OUR DOLPHINS RING OF HONOR...He spent most of his career trashing the Jests and their fans and what did he do, tucked his tail and ran to them because Rex claimed they were Super Bowl champs and what happened....The Jests were over rated to begin with...But everyone in the media crowned them before any games had been played....The Jests, LT and JT got what they deserved....And to the person who asked about their vets who have contracts ending yes they have a few on offense, Brad Smith, Santurdio Holmes, Braylon Edwards that I know of off hand...Then on D, Cromartie is a FA as is Revis I do belive or Revis might sit out again for MORE money, and the BETTER LB David Harris is a FA as well...

God damn.JT wanted to come back Parcels did not want him.He wanted to play football still Jets gave him a contract he signed it end of story.To make a huge deal about it is moronic.The guy gave the best years of his career to this team he needs to be treated better by the fans.God Parcells pulled a far worse crime on this team and no one bashes him like they do Jt.I am just stating the facts.

Ok we may have offered him a number on a cocktail napkin like Parcells did we Ricky Ricky signed Jt would not do it with out his agent looking at the complete contract.Would you sign something without your lawyer looking at it.This was his livelyhood at stake .

If I really wanted to play bad enough and wanted to finish out my career as a Phin yes I would have...and AGAIN with the "his lively hood" argument...Its not like the guy was being offered pennies he was offered actually right around what the Jets paid him and not to mention the fact the man has made MILLIONS over his career and looks to make millions more AFTER he retires...And you must not read many posts around he because PLENTY of people have bashed BP for what he has done...But again he wasnt a Dolphin from the start and go to a hated rival...Zach wanted a ring and what did he do? Marino wanted a ring and had offers from the Vikings and Steelers and what did he do...He retired a Dolphin...And if his best years were vanishing in important games then man those were Hall of Fame years....none of that takes away from the fact that JT is a hypocrite all the years he bashed the Jests and the fans and look he went crawling to them...Screw him

As happy as I am to see the Jets lose, did anyone see JT's postgame presser? He was just about in tears, you can tell he wanted this so bad, felt terrible for such a great player.
He is at the very end of the presser if you want to watch.

I understood his decision to join the Jets. We left him no choice. But he played for the Jets, so i had no choice but to hate him. Now that they faltered (GOD IS GOOD), NOW i can feel bad for JT. He is a good man, a GREAT man, but only now can i feel bad for him..

Some of you are crazy lol.

Look, I don't feel bad for the guy . . . he joined a hated rival and I wanted them to lose last night . . . feeling sympathy for him was lost when he put on that green and white uniform. However, I don't hate JT . . . some of these "burn in hell" comments are just overboard. There would be much more hate towards him if the Fins actually offered him a contract and he declined us to play with the Jets, that is not the case, and I can't knock a man for not begging and pleading with the Fins to offer him a contract and actually going to another team who did offer him a contract, even if it is the Jets.

Trying to discredit his solid play with the Dolphins because he is a Jet now is just comical, JT was a great player for this team for years . . . a face of this defense and former DPOY . . . he is getting older now, and he wanted to win a ring . . . meaning he wanted to still play. Nobody knows if Miami offered him a contract would he have stayed but clearly he wanted to continue playing and the Jets offered him a deal and he took it.

Now I'm not sure if his motives were to say FU to the Dolphins, or further his acting career, or whatever . . . but to trash this man like he is being trashed in this thread is a bit much.


Lets be fair about this:

It was JT and Porter who started problems on the flight home from London
It was JT who refused to attend the minnicamps as was requested of him
It was Parcells who resigned him after he went to the Redskins
They did offer him a new contract at the end of the season and JT declined it to test the waters of FA
By the time he realized his services were not in demand as much as he hoped and he wanted to resign the team had already decided to go in another direction and his roster spot was filled with another player.
JT was under the missconception that the Miami community thought the sun rose and sunk on his every whim. I have no ill will toward him but as far as I am concerned when he left and how he left burned his bridges. He is a Jet player now and anything good he did as a Dolphin player is overshadowed by his behavior over the past 3-4 years.

I feel sorry for his poor wife who lives in the Miami community and has to live with the embarassment he brought to his family. He is a quitter, a liar, a cheater, and an egomaniac. That is his legacy.

I don't care about JT. I'm very indifferent about him. The fact that I hate the jets so much makes it spill over and hate anybody that plays or coaches for that team. What pisses me off more than anything is the woe-is-me the dolphins wanted to wait to sign me attitude that he used and will still use to justify his move to the jets. I wish he would just come out and say that he felt the jets had a better chance of winning a SB and thats all that he wanted. Atleast Favre said his main goal was to stick it the Pack for how he was treated his last year.

Jason Taylor said he didn't feel like he could wait any longer for the fins to get back to him. That he felt he wasn't wanted cause of the lack of "Formal" contract proposal. It bothers me more that it wasn't alright for the dolphins to get back to him but its alright for the jets to get back to him after they take care of their other FA's.

Hell no I don't feel sorry for him. He needs to go get some education in class from ZT. "He is so happy to be a Jet". Well, retire a Jet without a ring. Screw that dude, it was always about him.

Be nice, at least we got him to a conference title game for the first time in his career.

Its the truth. JT hasn't won a playoff game since 2000 until this year.
