Joey Porter loves him some Joey Porter. And while it might seem that he's been especially loquacious this season now that the Dolphins are 4-4 and he's leading the league in sacks ... well, that's probably pretty accurate. Miami was 1-15 last year; even if Porter was flapping his gums, nobody was listening.
Not the case in 2008; Mr. Peezy has already proclaimed Brandon Marshall "soft," and wondered why Matt Jones, arrested for cocaine possession earlier this year, has yet to be punished by the league.
Marshall responded to Porter on Tuesday, and Jones took time out from not getting suspended to respond today.
"I don't even know why he's even thinking about me," Jones said. "I mean, maybe he likes other men and sits up and thinks about stuff, so I don't know. ... Is Joey Porter the commissioner? Then why would I even worry about it?"
All fair questions, particularly the first one. Why Porter cares about Jones is something of a mystery, since the Dolphins don't face the Jags this season, and more importantly, most people in the league don't even know who Jones is. I take Porter's point, though -- that the league is quick to fine him $20,000 for criticizing officials but sanctions for other, often more serious offenses seem arbitrary.
It appears that way, Joey, because that's exactly what's happening. But don't bring Matt into this, it's a buzzkill, frankly.
