It's not just me. He's getting beat up down here for a very good reason: he stinks. He's taking it on the radio and in the papers. How many sacks did he have in foxboro? How many tackles did he have up there?
Here's what one writer said in the Palm Beach post--the link follows:
Coming off a monster game at Carolina and going against a makeshift Buffalo offensive line, the expectation was that Porter would continue his renaissance and have Ryan Fitzpatrick running for his life all day.
Well, Fitzpatrick was running alright, but it was for the end zone.
Don’t let a couple of coverage sacks fool you as Porter looked old and slow off the edge most of the day playing against back-up tackles.
On one play, Fitzpatrick eluded Porter, who was rushing from his left outside linebacker spot, and everyone else as he sprinted around right end for a 31-yard touchdown run in the second quarter to tie the game at 7.
Sure, Porter was credited with three tackles and 2.5 sacks, but those were more due to Fitzpatrick having to eat the ball than any individual brilliance by Porter, who looks nothing like the game-changing Pro Bowler of 2008.
The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero is, imo, the best Fins sports writer--and he knows this team better than any other writer. The other day, after relating a Joey Porter story, Armando simply said: "I am going to miss Porter next year".
If Porter stink up the joint on Sunday, don't be surprised to hear "Joey S*#"S" chants. That's what I will be screaming. As much as I like Sporano and company, I am at a lost for words as to why Porter gets more snaps than Charlie Anderson and Cameron Wake---almost as much as I am at a lost for words as to why Ms. Ginn is still in Miami.
