It was an ugly day for the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Not only did they lose their season finale against the New York Jets but their highest paid player on offense pulled himself out of the game. While it's not yet known why he did it and what happened, we are able to see things breaking down right before he decided to quit on the team.
Here is Mike Wallace one play before he decides to pull himself out of the game. It was a short pass to Damien Williams and he is trying like hell to get out of bounds. Wallace calmly walks away without trying to help his teammate. Meanwhile, you can see Jarvis Landry come flying in trying to push Williams out of bounds.
Here is the touchdown pass to Charles Clay. Mike Wallace is in the slot and runs a route into the end zone. He wasn't open and he celebrates with Clay after the catch. I am not sure if this play had anything to do with Wallace being upset.
After the touchdown pass, Ryan Tannehill was seen on the sidelines yelling at the wide receivers coach while pointing a finger in the direction of Wallace. Obviously, there was no audio but are there any lip readers out there?
Finally, here's Joe Philbin talking to Wallace on the sideline after Tannehill yelled at him. It was reported by Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post that Wallace refused to run a play in the second half, which led to the coaches benching him.
