Some 24 hours after Brian Flores ripped defensive tackle Christian Wilkins for illegally body-slamming Chargers running back Austin Ekeler, he was “still upset” at his rookie defender.

Refs hit Wilkins with a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty for his WWE takedown on Ekeler during a running play. Flores pulled the first-round pick from the game and chewed him out.

“Look, it’s 10-10, we just missed a field goal and we’re right in it,” Flores said. “We don’t need those. He knows that. I think everybody on the team knows that. I thought it was a bad penalty. We show plays like that on a weekly basis — this is what we’re not going to do, and we do it.”

The silver lining, if there was one, was that penalty did not cost the Dolphins points. They got a stop on fourth down and got the ball back on downs.

He has the least talent in the league, and it isn't "borderline".

I can't count more than ten guys that would be considered solid NFL players, and ten is a stretch.
