    Warning: Lots of Profanity.








    It's funny how everyone suddenly loves Landry the moment he leaves Miami. There really is a significant bias against Miami in the national media for some reason.

    One thing I thought would not change with him when he got his big pay day was his passion for the game and passion with which he plays. Like him or not, he’s more the exception than the norm nowadays in that he’ll still go out and try and play like he’s had to earn every penny.

    Landry looks like he’s doing quite well in Cleveland, for that I’m happy for him. I wish he would be more professional when talking about his time with Miami. I feel like he feels burt hurt and is holding a grudge and some of the stuff he says just isn’t true.

    I'll just wait for the season. this is all just for the cameras anyway. Nobody here questioned his desire and love for the game.

    But with all that came out about him not knowing his routes, being a distraction and his awful temper you could see why the team had enough. If he is not getting the ball during the games I don't doubt he will revert back to that form and the mask will come off.

    I’m pretty sure there will be a new drinking game every time he says blessed.

    This wasn't a speech. This was a guy going off on people who probably weren't even in that room before he was.

    Feel like he was talking directly to Devante Parker lol

    Gonna miss that dude here. He played with a chip that this team has lacked for some time . . .and he backed it up with his availability and play.

    Exactly what I was expecting. Using expletives a million times doesn't make a good football player.

    I was wondering how much time he spent practicing that speech the night before. I haven't watched Hard Knocks since the Dolphins were on but I would bet Landry will be the star of more than one episode before it concludes.

    I wish he would have made himself available for reading the playbook or learning how to read an option route, but keep working on those one-handed catches bruh...grind on what you are already good at...lets not work on a weakness, only strengths...Is there a bigger poser then Landry?

    Preaches working hard and being great, fails to improve weaknesses, fails to be a professional. Hart and soul, but fake as well.

    Maybe when he said people in Miami don't appreciates **** maybe he was reading these forums. I always wondered if Landry really wasn't doing the right thing and hitting up the playbook and running the right routes than why did the Dolphins offer him 13.5 million? Or why didn't Gase ever bench him? Isn't that what coaches do? Andy Reid had no problem benching Owens...that's some weak sauce from Gase...you can call people out but not actually do anything actionable?

    If you watch the games you can clearly see him make the wrong reads on option routes. No one doubts he played hard and worked hard, but he failed to improve where he needed to most. I saw it all the time when I coached. Players were viewed as great workers, but they loved working on what they were already good at. It is natural for a player to hate that feeling of failure working on a weakness...for many, it has been a long time since they experienced that.

    You bring up Owens as if he was benched for poor play....the dude was benched for getting into a physical fight with a guy working in the front office...then proceded to challenge half the team to a fight. When people throw out **** like this without the context...this ****ing forum.

    I'm not saying he was making the right reads, I'm asking where's the accountability? Why offer someone who is hurting the team by running the wrong routes a hefty contract? This dude was running the wrong routes but was never benched or reprimanded or anything besides a vague public call out. Instead he was going to be rewarded by being the highest paid WR on the team. Ajayi was a problem and they traded his *** mid-season, they didn't offer him a fat contract. Bill Belichick sat Malcolm Butler in the SB, but Landry was allowed to play all 16 games despite not doing the right thing...again weak sauce by our HC. Players need to know if your not in that playbook and your not not doing your job, you can go ahead and sit on that bench and watch their backup play. That's the message you want to send.

    Maybe they can't suspend him but they could have sat him on the bench and inserted Grant or whoever else.

    from what I recall is he did improve for a brief period after the Thursday Night game. Even taking that charge against the raiders. But as the season winded down and our playoff hopes diminished, his attitude did as well. Check the Kansas city game where he was screaming at Gase. Or the criticism of Gase for not challenging his clear drop against the Pats. Or the brawl against Buffalo where he got thrown out. He only was in it for himself.

    The dolphins tried to make it work and pay him more than what he was worth. Seeing him as the best slot receiver and their number 2 option. He wanted Antonio Brown money and that is ridiculous. His fragile ego will be the end of him, if he can't get it together

    I was kind of stunned to see people talking about what a great speech this was, how it showed great leadership. What? It was a barely coherent rant of him projecting about how everyone else is a ***** and you all gotta be like Jarvis.

    I feel like I'm on another planet if this is what passes for great leadership in 2018.

    I agree, I had read on a bleacher report pop up or something that someone said he was going to have what would be considered the #2 speech all time or at least def top 5. im in the same boat, haven't watched hard knocks since the fins...never did before the fins. so I googled his speech and was like...wow that was just a locker room rant. I also never questioned his physical contributions and preparedness for his skill, no one could, even the biggest haters. but unless its a body building contest or football from the 70's the mental aspect has to be just as prepared for. and as far as contract goes, maybe they knew he'd balk at what the fins were offering, and that's what they were counting on, they didn't go too low with it so they didn't look completely ungrateful. or maybe im just giving the FO a little too much credit. I guess as always we wont know the outcome of any team decision until after week 17 so its just all jabber right now. but yes it wasn't an inspirational speech, just a long rant. I was reading somewhere on google and they were joking it talking about by the end of the season he will be apart of the "browns way" of doing things and quit caring as much. but wish him luck, enjoy your money, and why didn't you take omar with you?

    Best Hard Knocks moment ever. It was in the middle of a down pour and lightning storm vs TB I think.



    :roflmao


    Landry is an emotional guy and with his fat contract is expected to be a leader of that room but his speech was made for TV me thinks

    Do you think Jarvis cares? This is the dude talking about how the QB never ran offseason workouts even though there were multiple instragram posts of him working out with Landry, Matthews, Stills, Parker, etc.

    Breaking records and is regarded as one of the best WRs in the league (by some), just imagine what he could of been if he actually looked at a playbook once in a while...

    Exactly, here is a guy who does work hard at parts of his craft, if h was willing to put effort into the art he does struggle with he would be a guy worthy of that contract.

    I do find it interesting that he still managed to get a 15 yarder in the 1st preseason game for taunting...another area if he could clean up...

    I’m not afraid to admit it, I’m gonna miss this guy! Fins should too. How does any coach not love a guy like this in their locker room.

    Caution, lots of F bombs.

    Did anyone see the Browns preseason game last Thursday night? Browns' first offensive play of the game is a nice catch by Landry on the sideline...only to be undone by Landry's 15 yd taunting penalty.

    Smh - such great talent ruined by the 3" between his ears.

    As an alternate...as I stated, meaning he is not even one of the 6-8 best WRs of his peers...

    Wes Welker was a 5 time pro-bowler, 2 x 1st team all pro, 2x 2nd team all-pro, multiple super bowls and I think the likelihood of him getting into the hall is slim. Landry is not on Welkers level,
