    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.

    Its not "all of a sudden." He was ranked in the top 100 for a reason.

    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.
