Jason Taylor carried slowly off the field up on the shoulders of teammates Sunday afternoon was the last snapshot Dolphins fans would see of their all-time great defender. Taylor waved at the fans’ appreciative cheering but he was shaking his head, embarrassed by the attention, by the royal treatment.

The Dolphins' Taylor, who is retiring, said: "I don't deserve it. You know Don Shula deserves to be carried off this field, Dan Marino does, Zach Thomas deserved to be carried off this field."
Big game for Jet haters.
