No whining when my Pats lost Brady, Harrison, Thomas, etc., but if we lose to Miami again after Porter AGAIN runs his mouth, I think I'll vomit.

Patriots gear up for Porter's mouth, 'Wildcat' Dolphins

Associated Press

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots get another shot Sunday to silence Joey Porter and the Miami Dolphins.

Their first change didn't go so well. Porter had four sacks in the Dolphins' 38-13 rout at Gillette Stadium.

But Porter hasn't gotten over what happened before the game, saying again Monday that New England disrespected the Dolphins by disrupting their warm-ups before the September game.

"We don't like them," Porter said. "They don't like us."

Patriots fullback Heath Evans said Porter has earned the right to open his mouth.

"When you have 12-and-a-half, 13-and-a-half sacks or whatever he's got in 10 games, you can pretty much say what you want in this league and get away with it," Patriots fullback Heath Evans responded Tuesday. "Until we do something about him, he's earned the right to say what he wants to say. They're 1-0 against us this year."

Evans said Porter should get much of the credit for the inspired play of the Dolphins' defense this season.

"I think he's that fired up every week," Evans said. "He's a competitor. I admire a guy like that on the field."

Sunday's game is a crucial one in a tight AFC East race. Miami and New England enter with 6-4 records, one game behind the first-place New York Jets.

"There's not much room here," Patriots left tackle Matt Light said. "Where we're at right now, everybody understands we have to play better week in, week out. And it starts with this week. This is as big as it gets."

Light and the offensive line will have to do a better job containing Porter -- and the rest of the Miami defense. In Week 3, the Dolphins sacked quarterbacks Matt Cassel and rookie Kevin O'Connell five times.

"He's playing some of his best ball," Light said. "He's one of those guys you just have to get a hat on. You can't give anything to him. He takes everything he gets."

"He's the same player we've seen," Patriots coach Bill Belichick added. "I think it certainly helps them defensively. Their turnovers, their sacks, some of their big plays on defense have come, as usual, when the offense is in long-yardage situations or they're ahead and (the offense) has to throw, they're taking more chances, they're a little more exposed."

Belichick and defensive coordinator Dean Pees also have been fielding questions about containing the Dolphins' "Wildcat" formation that features a direct snap to the running back with the quarterback split out as a receiver. The formation burned the Patriots for 461 total yards in September. Ronnie Brown rushed for 113 yards and four touchdowns on 17 carries while throwing for another score.

"It's a formation they run maybe five to eight times a game," Belichick said Tuesday. "They jump into it, jump out of it. They change it up every week, either add a couple new plays or add a couple of new looks off of it."

The Patriots offensive line has cleaned up its play significantly over the last four weeks, allowing just four sacks in the past three games. The solid line play has helped Cassel become more confident in the pocket, throwing for a career-best 400 yards and three touchdowns in 34-31 overtime loss to the New York Jets on Nov. 13.

I view Porter pretty much the way I view Ray Lewis, minus the murder coverup charge. They both are great LBs that love to shoot their mouths off but they usually back it up on the field. Yes their diarreah of the mouth gets tiresome but they DO motivate their teams.

I actually think guys like them make the game more fun. Nothing better than when your team beats guys like Porter and Lewis.

 
Porter is the opposite end of the cliche spectrum. No "play every down" or "take it one week at a time" from this guy. I'm not a big Porter fan, but I do find it just a little refreshing that someone will actually tell you he doesn't like someone and would like to hurt them because of it. Bit of old school in there, even thought I don't like how he beats his own drum so much.

Terrible example comparing Ray Lewis with him, he is nothing like Porter. :thumbup: Other players actually respect Ray Lewis because of his play and the guidance he gives many young players. Porter is a jerk that many players on his own team don't even care for...big difference.

Really? I am not being an #####, I just have never heard this before. Is this widely known or just speculation?

;) Porter was loved by Bill Cowher and his teammates in Pittsburgh. Have his teammates in Miami been complaining about him?

Did you have a problem with that quote before the game too?

I get the impression that Ray Lewis is actually intelligent. Porter just sounds stupid to me. I know some people who were at Colorado State at the same time and they said he was a huge ###, FWIW.
 
If the guy can back it up I say more power to him. It's guys like Chad Johnson who talk a lot and then do jack squat on the field that bother me. :goodposting:

I never said Porter was a Rhodes scholar nor did I say that he wasn't an ###. I was comparing him to Lewis as both being pretty good LBs with big mouths that fire up their teams and that you love to root against.
 
I didn't become a Joey Porter fan until the Steelers 2005-06 playoff run. Guy was an animal and looks to have the same motor this season. He uses perceived disrespect as fuel and frequently says dumb things but when he's healthy there are few better. He was a leader in Pittsburgh undeniably. The players loved him and Bill Cowher loved him. I think he deflected alot of attention and pressure from other players. I find his approach refreshing at times, in a day and age where guys are buddies before, during and after games Porter plays to win and doesn't care who's his friend afterwards.

I think he's a great teammate and has on occasion been a great player in the NFL, but he doesn't need to bring his list of perceived slights to the media like a itch. Talk on the field.

I agree with what you're saying but that's his way of motivating himself and teammates. When he was in Pittsburgh I remember seeing various teammates laugh at Porter's comments but also saying something like "Well if Joey said it then we'd better go back him up." He is a rallying force whether you agree with his comments or not.

All the money he's donated back to the school would say otherwise. I'll go with that.

What is it, exactly, that you "hate"? The part where he said, "We don't like them. They don't like us." It can't be that. There is nothing wrong with that. I suspect you would have no problem if it were a Patriots linebacker saying it. It's the truth.Or, are you mad that he brought up the fact the Patriots interrupted the Dolphins warm-ups? Again, reverse the roles and where would you stand?

Really, the best part of the article is Heath Evans saying Porter has earned the right due to his play, and the fact that the Dolphins beat them. In fact, he goes on to say that he's inspired the defensive play this season and that he admires him. But you don't like that part, right?

Porter is like a lot of great NFL linebackers...where fans of other teams hate him; but it would be just the opposite if he played for "their" team.

I'll go with people who had first hand experience of being around him while he was at the school. Donating money doesn't change the fact that he was an ### while there, nor does it change the fact that he's still an ###.

Fair enough I guess... But Porter is merely a good LB having a career year. Lewis is a likely first ballot HOFer.

That's hearsay, and I suspect some bias here (maybe a lot), but we're clearly not going to get anywhere. I'm sure we can find somebody that hated Tom Brady at Michigan. Whatever with that stuff...Giving back to the program, including things like going to the game a few weeks ago the night before the Dolphins played the Broncos is clear proof he, in fact, does care. And money talks, say what you want, but I don't see many other players ponying up. You can't discount that.I have it on a good account he has also given back to his hometown. The guy cares a lot more than most people (fans of other teams) would ever realize.Porter has been a leader and champion who has raised his teammates play at every level. And he has been extremely generous in giving back off the field. He has his shortcomings, but actions speak louder than words. You can't say he doesn't care; and you can't say he doesn't give back. That is WAY more than most of your "heroes" will ever do.
 
I love how he went crawling to Jim Rome and begged him not to call him "Joey Eugene Porter" anymore cuz that was disrespecting him, too.

Fair enough. My heroes, though, are my parents, so I have to disagree with you on that last part.
 
Fair enough I guess... But Porter is merely a good LB having a career year. Lewis is a likely first ballot HOFer.
I agree that Lewis likely is a first ballot HOFer but Porter has been very good for a long time. It is not merely a case of him having one good season.Both Lewis & Porter have been part of great defenses and both have won a Super Bowl. It is difficult to compare them statistically because Porter is an OLB and Lewis has mainly been an ILB but Porter has some nice stats: 79 sacks, 22 forced fumbles and 12 interceptions in 10 seasons compared to Lewis' 31 sacks, 11 forced fumbles and 28 interceptions in 13 seasons.You obviously don't like Porter but you should give the man his due: as a LB he has been pretty damm good.
 
We complain when players rely on the same old cliches and player-speak, and then complain when they actually have something interesting to say. The guy is having a great season.

 
I don't like the fact that he jumps people outside the game but I love his attitude in the game. I hate the other teams and I like that he does too. I understand that players have friends on other teams but I would prefer that they didn't and this goes double with rivalry teams.

You do get the whole "killing him with kindness" thing, right? Of course Evans and Light had nothing but positive things to say. They're not stupid enough to give the Dolphins more to talk about in the lockerroom.

Um, yeah. So? Let's give 'em a ribbon and some cake.More pertinent, where is the outrage from the original poster derived in that excerpt? I still don't see anything Porter said as warranting such an opinion, or thread title/subtitle.

If anything, I'd like to hear more about the Patriots disruption of MIAMI's (not just Porter's) pre-game warmup. What went down exactly? Can I get an unbiased recant of the events? And since Miami wasn't happy about it, what in the world is wrong with Porter bringing that up? If anything, I'm looking forward to the game now.

And lmfao at having any sort of problem with Porter saying, "We don't like them, they don't like us". Are you ####### kidding me that there is something wrong with that? :bowtie: He's an NFL linebacker, not Michelle Kwan.
