    You know who I am afraid of? In a sport/fight/what have you? Not the people talking a wild game, I'm afraid of the people who say nothing at all.
    "Coach Sparano assured us at the beginning of the week, they win the turnover battle, they win the game," guard Richie Incognito said. "And we went out there, turned the ball over."

    In this thread:
    1) OP Over-Reacting to players' remarks
    2) Members Over-Reacting to OP's remarks

    You think what they say in these interviews is gonna change how teams prep for us?
    You think what they say in these interviews is gonna change how we produce week in and week out?

    Probably not. Just more off-season fodder.

    lol what?! So you are saying you want the dolphins to be quiet, to help "fly under the radar". But now you are saying you are afraid of the quiet ones? how does this make any sense?! So perhaps the dolphins should talk big game, and no one will be afraid of them, and them BAM, win on sundays! yay!!!! We are going to win the SB this year! spread the word!!!!!

    Re: Our players need to shut up right now.

    Hey defiant... Wallace just said it wont take Tannehill long to become a top QB and that he may throw the ball deeper than Big Ben.

    Should we cut Wallace now? Or just try for a trade?

    What are we gaining from this? I understand our players have confidence, and I understand everyone is excited that Ireland went all-in, but there is something to be said for staying humble. This is a team that hasn't had a winning record in 5 years. The offense has been very below average all of those years. There is significant advantage to flying under the radar and being sneaky good. If you sit here, all offseason, with one player saying how great the team is going to be, you are not humble and you are getting the wrong kind of attention. Pouncey sitting up there, talking about how we are targetting the Patriots in a David vs. Goliath showdown. Once again, by all means we SHOULD be targeting the Patriots. BUT SHUT UP ABOUT IT. We, just like the Jets previous years, have not earned the right to say a word. The Patriots have ruled this division for a very long time and that can only change on the field, not by talking about it.

    Sneak up on the giant and cut it's achilles tendon after the match has begun instead of throwing rocks at it while it is sleeping.
    We don't have a bunch of little bitches playing for us, these are grown ass men. And when we face other grown ass men, they need to know what the **** time it is.. "We Ready"

    Lawrence Taylor, Deion Sanders, Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, Floyd Mayweather.... pretty sure talent is the most important thing when it comes to winning.

    Yeah because that's not the most insane straw man argument ever made. I never said anyone should be cut, just that they should shut up and fly under the radar.

    One is talking about my point of view. The other is talking about others' point of view. Naturally, they're not the same thing. Figure it out.

    It's ironic that you started a thread endorsing "think more speak less" that IMO,actually more closely embodies that philosophy.

    Congratulations: you're a frontrunner:

    http://www.finheaven.com/images/impo...5/70l3xs-1.jpg

    Dr Norman Vincent Peale, one of the founders in "The Power of Positive Thinking" would endorse our players' mindsets, as you've gotta "believe it to conceive it" always being the mental launching pad towards success. Beyond that as most everyone pointed out, these guys responded proudly to questions...they didn't blurt anything out unsolicitedly, nor with undue bravado. .
