After losing to the Patriots last week, some players on the Miami Dolphins felt like it was disrespectful of New England to run the same play over and over again in order to eat up the clock in the fourth quarter.
“It really (ticked) me off,” said linebacker Karlos Dansby, per the Palm Beach Post. “It was disrespectful to us to run the same play over and over and be successful.
“Normally when somebody’s driving down the field you just think, ‘Well, they just had a good run there,’ but you run the same play over and over, as a competitor that (ticks) me off.”
“It is disrespectful, but you’ve got to stop it,” said Randy Starks. “We never stopped it, so I’d keep running the same play, too.”
The Dolphins should be embarrassed that the Patriots were able to run the ball down their throat with the same play. They should have been able to stop them.
