During Ohio State’s spring game, the Buckeyes defense let a very special fan score a touchdown on the last play of the game. In the final seconds of the fourth quarter, Jacob Jarvis, a teenage Buckeyes fan who has muscular dystrophy, scored Team Scarlet’s final touchdown of the game.
“If you’re a competitor, that’s the way you should feel, and I don’t mind saying it,” Landry said. “It’s time for a change. I have all the respect in the world for the Patriots, and I respect Tom Brady tremendously. But they’re not our big brother anymore.”
After splitting their series with New England in 2013, 2014 and 2015, Miami lost both games to the Pats last year, Adam Gase’s first season as Dolphins head coach.
“He’s flipped the switch with us,” Landry said of his coach. “New England’s won the division 14 of the last 16 years, something like that? It’s ridiculous. It’s a problem. We cannot let that happen anymore. What I’ve seen is, when we play that game, sometimes we focus on the Cheap Youth Baseball Jerseys guys on the other side of the line instead of just focusing on us. And I want to be part of that change. I China Cheap Jerseys Wholesale want to go into the games against New England expecting to win — that’s something we need to do.”
While MMQB softens Landry’s comments by writing, “there wasn’t a speck of disrespect or smack talk about the Patriots,” Brady, Belichick and Co. probably won’t interpret it that way. If the Patriots need any extra motivation when they face Miami in 2017, Landry has provided it.
