On Sunday afternoon after the Buffalo Bills lost the Kansas City Chiefs, Leodis McKelvin came out and said that they were going to come down to Miami and whoop their ---. With all that smack talk leading up to tonight’s game, are players worried about it and has it gotten into their heads?
“We didn’t put it up on the board or anything, but we’re aware of what’s been said,” Ryan Tannehill said. “I don’t think we need to get into a media battle or a Twitter battle or anything like that. It’s just a matter of going out and playing well. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what you say during the week, it matters how you play on Thursday.”
Lamar Miller said the team didn’t spend much time on it and have gone about their preparation the normal way they do for a game. He said they have to come out and play football and do the talking on the field.
Ja’Wuan James, a rookie who has handled himself this season like a veteran, said that he, along with many others on the team, have ignored it.
“I ignore it. It’s not a war of words. It’s what we do out there on the field. That’s going to be proving it when we go out there and the score when the clock hits zero-zero, all the talking would not have mattered. We are just going to go out there and focus on what we can control, go out there and hopefully like the outcome.”
We’ll see who gets the last laugh on Thursday night and I know we’re all hoping that it’s the Dolphins who make McKelvin eat his words.
