Is it wise to poke the bear?
Rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill was asked about playing the New England Patriots -- the team with three Super Bowl victories since 2000. The team that leads the AFC East. The highest-scoring team in the NFL. Those Patriots.
"They're just another team," Tannehill said Wednesday, according to the Miami Herald. "They're a really good team. They've won a lot of games this year. But it's not something that affects us."
"A lot of teams have been among the elite," Dansby said. "Everybody has prestige behind their organization. What makes them different than anybody else?
"Every team in the AFC East has prestige behind them -- even the Buffalo Bills. (Sheesh), they went to the Super Bowl four times in a row an didn't win it. So playing them is just like playing the New England Patriots."
No. 2: Why the shot at the Bills?
No. 3: Why poke the bear?
