Dolphins WR Kenny Stills has delusions about Patriots QB Tom Brady
After losing 35-18, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills was oddly proud of the fact that he spent most of the game heckling New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady from the sidelines.
Brady completed 18-of-28 passes for 227 yards and 4 touchdowns. And, while the Dolphins did manage an interception, he was thoroughly dominant of an AFC East opponent yet again.
However, Stills still seems to think that heckling Brady will allow the Dolphins to get into his head and thinks he was helping accomplish exactly that on Sunday.
“I just was hollering at him all game,” Stills said according to Tom Curran of NBC Sports Boston. “We feel like if we can get in his head, that’s the best way to try and win this game. I was trying to do my part.
Brady apparently could hear Stills and acknowledged him after the game with a laugh. And it’s also clear that Stills doesn’t mean any disrespect when he’s trash-talking Brady, but the fact that he thinks that’s the best way to go after the five-time Super Bowl champion does say a lot about why the Dolphins haven’t won in New England since 2008.
Stills had 3 catches for 47 yards on the day, so trash talk wasn’t all he contributed, but the Dolphins definitely could have used a performance more along the lines of the 7 catches, 180 yards and a touchdown he provided the week prior.
