What Was Joey Porter Thinking?

Posted: 9/17/2008 8:59 PM

What Was Joey Porter Thinking? 


Either his ego is writing his body can't cash, or the elevator still doesn't go to the top floor.

From ESPN:

Miami linebacker Joey Porter decided that the Patriots - Dolphins rivalry didn't have enough juicy storylines this week, so he decided to throw his own name into the mix by denigrating Patriots quarterback Matt Cassel.  

"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."

According to Dolphin Digest editor Alain Poupart, that type of commentary from Porter isn't unual.  Maybe "next, he'll actually make a play," Poupart mocked.

Porter is widely considered one of the Dolphins' biggest free agent busts in recent history.

Re: What Was Joey Porter Thinking? 


The title of this thread is a misnomer.

"Joey Porter" and "thinking" should never, under any circumstances be used in the same sentence.

Re: What Was Joey Porter Thinking? 


I saw this on the Dolphins board. At least 1 Dolphin fan was not happy with Porters remarks. Here was his reply.


"Oh, Good God!!!!

You know even when someone on your own team says sh!t like this, you hope he gets torched at least once."

 lol

Re: What Was Joey Porter Thinking? 


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.

Re: What Was Joey Porter Thinking? 


They just got beat by a 39-year old QB who wasn't Tom Brady and a 37-year old who also wasn't Tom Brady. Playing a QB who isn't Brady seems like the absolute least of their worries.

Kind of makes me wish we still had Dillon - he'd run right at Porter all day long.

Joey who?

Re: What Was Joey Porter Thinking? 


Hell, - he's worse than that character from Chicago last year, - that the Pats torched.

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.

Re: What Was Joey Porter Thinking? 


Hell the real upset in the Pats/Miami game would be if Porter actually made a play.

Re: What Was Joey Porter Thinking? 


I guess Porter didn't watch what the Pats did to the Steelers last year after Smith opened his big mouth.

"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!

Re: What Was Joey Porter Thinking? 


He's not with Pittsburgh anymore. He doesn't have a team that can back this up. 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.

Porter has always mouthed off vs. the Pats, even with Pittsburgh.


The more he talks, the more he loses focus on his game.

Re: What Was Joey Porter Thinking? 


We should all feel sorry for Joey Porter... He just has a very serious case of Terminal ignorance.!!!

Re: What Was Joey Porter Thinking? 


In Joey Porter's defense. He did the same thing before playing Cincinnati in the playoffs the year they won the Super Bowl. 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.

Re: What Was Joey Porter Thinking? 


Hey football, who in the hell is Jeremy Stevens????  I'm still laughing!!

right. because playing quarterback in the nfl doesn't do that already.
it takes an attention-grabbing moron like porter to accomplish something like that.

Hey...thanks for the quote! I popped over to see if this was warranting even a discussion. I understand what Joey is saying, but geez...keep it inside the locker room until after you have won the game...or in our case, have been competitve with y'all. There are several of us over there that are not happy about it and a few that say this type of stuff doesn't matter in the NFL.

We are 1-21 in our last 22 and I think you guys are the mirror opposite of that. Until we can prove that we can play ball...with anyone...we need to show we can walk the walk...

I hope we win on Sunday and if not I hope we give you guys a hell of a game. It will be a measuring stick.

I still think you guys are still the class of the league until proven otherwise. You were a hell of a catch away from pulling off the impossible last year after dealing with a bunch of stuff, whether deserved or not. I will not get into that debate.

Just remember...if we break out the orange jerseys, you wont score a point! :-)

Good luck this week!

Re: What Was Joey Porter Thinking? 


OH Pleaseeee. I'll squash both those scenarios. Against the Bungles they hurt the QB like 3 mins into the game, and Seattle was ripped off on that SB. So Joey still didnt do ****. 

Hell I'd love to see Cassel hit Welker on a slant right at Joey so Welker could quickly stiff arm his ass or make his ankles break, either or is fine by me.

Looks like he's right at least today

Re: What Was Joey Porter Thinking? 


Porter didn't have a bad game, but he needed Pennington, his RB and rest of his defense to step up.  He talks trash to pump himself up, or because he has an ego and likes press.  He doesn't do it to fire up his team.  The entire Dolphins org deserves credit for this win - however Porter will probably say some outrageous after the game and feel like he deserves credit for this win.

Yep, looks like Porter backed up his words.

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.

your right about that, if everything Porter said didn't come true and if he didn't get any sacks and played like crap and Ronnie Brown didn't play and Penny broke his hand and wasn't 17 for 20 and Miami scored like 4 less touchdowns and wouldn't have blown the Pats out then Porter would look pretty foolish right now...
How can you possably expect Porter to do anymore than he did to help his team to this win, Porter wasnt going to throw many touchdowns or rush for many yards his job was to play Defense and get in Cassels face and he did his job about as good as it can be done today so Yes he did back up his words and played his best game as a Dolphin in a game where he said he would...
