"I just know he's not a Tom Brady," Porter said. "So if it's not Tom Brady, it shouldn't be that hard."
If he was trying to compliment Brady, that would have been one thing. He actually took the comment a step further by claiming that the Patriots had little chance to win with Cassel under center.
"It'll be good to go out there and get our first victory," he said.
Porter isn't one to mince words in a rivalry, but then again, he's never played for Bill Parcells -- where opening your mouth before huge division game is a no-no.
Not only did Porter give the Patriots bulletin board material, he also worked hard to give them the defensive game plan.
"You treat him like you treat a backup," Porter said. "How do you prepare for a backup? He don't get that many snaps, right? So you throw the kitchen sink at him. That's what we're going to do."

The funniest part is where he says "if it's not Tom Brady it shouldn't be that hard". But Joey, you've been beaten by a lot of not-Tom-Brady's the last few years, haven't you?
Ahh Joey. It's good for you that you talk so much. Otherwise everyone would forget that you are still playing in the NFL.

Matt Cassel has the deer in the headlights look at times. Hopefully he won't be scared of te big bad non game having run his mouth only Porter and make mistakes.

Yeah, Cassel really stinks. Talk about a WASTE of a 7th round pick !!.

"What was Joey Porter thinking?"An inside glimpse into Joey's head: ... ...Look, he has loads of talent, it's just such a shame it was wasted. He could be an encreadible player if he concentrated on his position ON the field and not off it!

I'm sure that this type of talk gets him more motivated for the game, but there's a good chance that his own teammates are upset about this and there's a definite chance that the Patriots will be upset about this. It's like TO making a game about him and then crying about his QB.

I think he called out Jeremy Stevens in the Superbowl and later watched Stevens choke, dropping pass after pass. Sometimes trash talk does put the target on the spot, hence building a lot more pressure upon that person. He is simply testing Cassels fortitude, nerves, heart, and ability to play under pressure.

Porter had a great game - no doubt about that. But he isn't exactly Joe Namath. He says stuff like that 5 games a year. Statistically, he's going to back it up a few times in his career. Now, when he makes these predictions, is it to inspire his team or is it because he's a loudmouth? His team played well, but they've played many poor games after his statements. I think he does it because it motivates him or because he likes being in the media. I don't think his boasts are carefully timed words. If he had this same exact game without Pennington being money, Brown having a great game or the rest of his defense having a great game (and I'm probably missing a lot of people), he would have lost. All the respect in the world goes to the Dolphins, but I don't like hearing that Porter backed up his words when he's batting .342 in backing up his word.
