Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline told The Dan LeBatard Show on 790 The Ticket (via SportsRadioInterviews.com) that he had no idea that he put together a record-breaking performance this past Sunday against the Cardinals.
“I had no idea. No idea,” said Hartline. “Game was over, frustrated we lost. Went in the middle of the field with a chance to catch up with Beanie Wells, who played at Ohio State with me. And he’s like, ‘Man, good game.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, you know. Thanks.’ He’s like, ’250 yards.’ And then my first words came out and I’m like, ‘Yeah, you’re kidding me,’ or whatever I said. Stop messing with me or that’s messed up, whatever. Leave the field and I’m like, ‘Man, 250? Yeah right.’ I’m hoping maybe I had like 130 or something, 150 or something. And then the media came in, asked me, ‘How does it feel to do something that no Dolphin’s ever done?’”
Dolphins rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill clearly loves throwing the ball to Hartline. He ended up targeting him 19 times last week.
