I'm reluctant to criticise him without hearing the comments or the actual questions asked.

To be honest, you probably want him to say - "ask coach" - in response to that kind of question.

This. They went straight to Wallace after the game.

"How come u get no catches huh huh??"

Because the Browns have a borderline elite CB in Haden who played excellent, and our other WRs were open all day, that's why.

Wallace is a gamer and decided not to say anything stupid. But of course today the media is ranting and raving about how upset Wallace is.

GTFO

There are obviously still chemistry issues between him and Tannehill. I'm not surprised at all and they'll sync up better with more and more reps. The Colts don't have a CB like Haden. We'll see what happens this week.


The questions about Wallace's individual performance are justified if for no other reason than Wallace tweeted before the game that Haden was in for a long, long day, and because there was a lot of talk about a million dollar match up between Haden and Wallace.

And as Silus already correctly pointed out, Jeff Ireland had to console him as they were running off the field. In other words, Wallace's pouting was pre-interview and pre-media. Sorry, but if Brandon Marshall had done this exact same thing, there are tons of Dolphin fans in this forum that would have been up in arms. I have no problem with a player wanting the ball, and wanting to contribute, but public pouting is not acceptable and distracts the team from being a team.

Wallace in a NON issue for me and for the coaching staff it seems.


Quote:
Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman also offered support for Wallace. "Mike's a competitor. He wants to feel a part of the game, as I hope that he would," Sherman said Monday afternoon. "He came here to be a factor in our season and our success. The fact that he's disappointed he only caught one ball, that's expected. I have no problem with that."


Im more concerned with Starks and his actions, surprised the media hasnt ran with this.

Quote:
Starks’ situation was interesting, as well. Following a third-quarter sack, Starks put up his middle finger to his own sideline.


Quote:
“It was probably at me directly,” Philbin joked


I understand being upset youre not starting, but that's uncalled for IMO.

This is such a tiny issue....the media is mad that he wouldn't comment so they are going to blow the whole situation out of proportion...

A guy who is the teams number 1 WR is hardly targeted....is upset..I can't imagine a person who plays an adrenalin filled sport having some sort of emotion after a game....how did we end up with someone who is passionate about performing at a high level...Rolling Eyes

I'm sorry I have to think a pissed off Wallace could be huge this week...

I am also glad we are bringing up Marshall....because he is relevant to the conversation in what way?

I am sure Brandon Marshall felt the same way.

The cynic in me thinks - Starks has a much lower profile nationally so they personally get less attention for the story.

Starks has already came out and said he flipped the bird to a handful of teammates on the sideline who were giving him a hard time about not starting as a joke.

Mike Wallace
Quote:
"I was mad at myself because I didn't have a good game," Wallace said. "It just wasn't a good day for me. Our quarterback made good reads. I was upset with myself. It wasn't really anything else having to do with anything. I'm always happy when we win. But from a personal standpoint, when you don't do well, you're upset. If you're not upset, you don't need to be on the team. I want to be a great player and I want to make plays. That's the only reason I'm here."


Mike Sherman
Quote:
“In no way did that bother me,” Sherman said of Wallace expressing his unhappiness. “Mike wants to feel a part of the game, as I would hope he would. He came here to be a factor in our success. Any great competitor would feel that way. The fact he’s disappointed he only caught one ball -- that’s expected. I have no problem with that. I don’t fault him for that.

“I told him he can communicate that to me anytime he wants – as long as he practices hard tomorrow… with a smile on his face, which he will and be ready to go next week.

Ah, must have missed that. Never mind then. All good for me then. Wallace will ball out in Indy, only cause I'm benching him in fantasy.

With a guy like that, you can't tell if he would prefer having monster stats in a Superbowl loss, or one catch and a Superbowl win.

Of course I agree. He should be able to mask those emotions better. But the media is still fanning the fire. He came out today and said what he should have said yesterday. Day late but better than letting it fester.

I'll throw out the D word when the behavior becomes a trend.

I dont buy either explanation from Starks or Wallace. Nor do I see it as a real issue at the moment.

Wallace: It would have been nice to for him to wait for a pattern of un-involvement to happen before voicing discontent - but Im encouraged that he sees his statements as inappropriate and the spat was handled quickly and without collateral damage in-house.

Starks: He's gone next year and it shows lol. I hope he plays his [inappropriate/removed] off to earn the big, longterm contract Ireland wont give him.

Wallace's presence alone is what allowed Gibson (who looks pretty darn good after the catch) and Hartline to feast. Whatever Wallace's stat line is....his reputation alone forces teams to account for him...with that said, he is going to need to hit on a few big plays to maintain that reputation.

Sorry....wanted to actually discuss a little football instead of what became the story....
