The D will RushYa, Like Moscow
Tony McDaniel seemed REAL UNHAPPY today on the Sid Rosenberg show today
I don't tune into the Sid Rosenberg show often, but I was listening today and they had Tony McDaniel on and Sid asked Tony about being named the starter for the Minnesota game and then right before the game them sending Randy back to DE and putting Soliai at NT and having him rotate like normal. McDaniel stated that they had a "package" for him and that package was not going to start the game.
So Sid, being the funniest unfunny guy you know asked Tony if he is bothered by them bringing in a guy like Odrick, Merling still in the mix, Grant, Douglas, etc and says your a big and impressive enough guy to handle it and McDaniel was like"I agree I don't know why they keep bringing in these guys either". He also says that him and Mike Nolan have not "connected at all" and even him and Tony Sparano "aren't tight like that". He stated with supreme confidence in being able to be a dominant force on this line and feels like coaches don't see it like that.
He goes on to say "Well this is my last year in Miami" and when Sid tells him that they just want "you and Will Allen" off on a plane out of here Tony laughingly (but seriously) agreed. Sid decides to get off the subject saying he doesn't want to get him in trouble with the Dolphins and Tony really didn't seem to care. They went on to talk about the Dolphins and he did acknowledge the great team defense they have played and he was glad the team has gotten off to a good start.
I just found it real weird that a player would go on a radio talk show after a 2-0 start to the season and express his dissappointment so openly and bluntly to a talk show host. I wonder what is going on here? I really like the depth that Tony McDaniel brings to our DLine and I was hoping we resign him but it definitely doesn't look like that is going to happen.
