Dolphins respond to Saints' insults; coaches address issues

Dolphins offensive linemen had mixed reactions today to Saints linebacker Junior Galette's insulting comments after Monday night's game.

Galette said: "Up front, we kept taking advantage of their weak tackles and their inside guys. I wish we could play them again so we could tee off on them again. I don't think that team was as good as everybody was saying. We just abused their offensive line all game."

The Saints had four sacks, but center Mike Pouncey said that resulted from the Saints knowing the Dolphins would pass on most every down in the second half.

Pouncey said of Galette's comments: "He didn't really do much. Anybody can go and say what they did. But the film doesn't lie. Watch the film. The film doesn't lie. He had two tackles. I guess he's the best defensive player in the NFL." (Actually, Galette had a sack, quarterback hurry, and hit Ryan Tannehill's arm on his last interaction.)

Pouncey contradicted Galette's assertion that the Dolphins were trash-talking. "We're not trash-talkers," Pouncey said. "That's not part of our game. They didn't start trash-talking until they were up 25."

Left tackle Jonathan Martin said he doesn't care what Galette said, but that the Saints started the trash-talking.

And left guard Richie Incognito said initially that he had no comment about Galette's insult, but then added: "Win or lose, you have to stay classy. I don't think those comments were very professional."

Please check back later tonight, or in the morning, for the Wednesday buzz, with more Dolphins news, plus Heat and Canes chatter. Also, please check the last post for everything notable that Joe Philbin and the coordinators had to say today.
