Maybe he's just one of the biggest trash talkers in the NFL. Or maybe it's because he's 1-6 against the Patriots. Whatever the motivation, Joey Porter has all but publicly predicted a Dolphins victory on Sunday.
"I just know he’s not Tom Brady."
"You treat him like you treat a backup. 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."
"It’ll be good to go out there and get our first victory."
It's one thing to be confident. It's another thing to be cocky. And it's a whole other thing to be cocky on an 0-2 team. A team that was 1-15 last season.
Hopefully this year, Porter will play the role of Anthony Smith. Those at that game last season will remember the chants of "Guarantee" as Smith's mug was flashed on the jumbotron.
