All the NFL pre game shows of course covered the Jonathan Martin-Richie Incognito situation. One of more interesting exchanges about it came on ESPN’s pregame show where Mike Ditka gave his unique opinion about the situation:
“I want to say one thing,” he said, according to Pro Football Talk. “If I was the coach, I wouldn’t have either Incognito, the bully, or the baby, Martin, on my team. That’s me. [Does] that make me right? No. That makes me me. And I would stand up to that, because you don’t do what Martin did and you don’t do want Incognito did. Period.”
Listen, calling a man who may or may not have mental or emotional problems “a baby” isn’t the greatest look in the world. However, Ditka is entitled to his opinion like everyone else. I am surprised however, that ESPN didn’t tell him to pick his words more carefully after he said that the way to deal with this is to take the bully to “fist city.”
It will be interesting to see if he is forced to apologize.

Following the Dolphin’s press conference this afternoon, the NFL Countdown crew took on – again – the bullying incident, hazing, and locker room culture. And it mercifully started out with an awkward silence followed by Trent Dilfer gingerly tip-toeing into a subtle rebuke of Incognito’s behavior. But as he went on, egged on a little by Stu Scott, Dilfer got more heated and...

In regards to his infamous voicemail, Incognito said, “I’m embarrassed by it…But what I want people to know is, the way Jonathan [Martin]...
Richie Incognito has been the hot topic in the NFL recently, so it’s understandable why Mike Tirico had this slip up. Tirico mixed up a Mike Pouncey 15-yard personal foul penalty with Richie Incognito during the Miami Dolphins Monday Night Football game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Incognito is inactive for the game and likely won’t be playing another down in the NFL for his...
Mike Tirico did perhaps the inevitable tonight on MNF.
With Incognito-Martin being all over the headlines in the sports world, it shouldn’t come as a shock when Mike Tirico just assumed a flag on Miami was the fault of a very suspended Richie Incognito. A sports Freudian slip, if you will.
Hard not to giggle

Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin has no control over his locker room. When the Miami Dolphins hired former Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin as the team’s new head coach prior too the 2012 season, I though the Fins made a good hire. During his short tenure, Philbin has shown himself to be very capable in his new position – until now that is.My one and...
