    Incognito responds:

    NEW YORK: Attorney: Jonathan Martin sent threatening and lewd messages to Miami Dolphins teammate Richie Incognito - Miami Dolphins - MiamiHerald.com



    So, get your popcorn ready, because the post-SB report and consequences are going to be something to watch.

    Fine by me. I hope he works out a deal with the Pfish to cut him with a settlement, and we can pick him up on the cheap. He'd make a great LG.

    "Martin pledged to send someone over to Incognito’s home with a “tranquilizer gun and sandpaper condoms” to rape him"

    Stanford graduate, eh? That's what the Harvard of the West is producing these days?

    my new philosophy is "EVERYTHING has jumped the shark"...

    While I find the idea appealing I wonder if that’d be making a deal with the devil that could come back to bite us, if Martin can’t handle some smack talk can he hack it in an NFL locker room? Is he going to cause a media incident every time ribs him?

    I don't think BB would take Martin on his team if Martin paid for the privilege.

    That's what I would say about Incognito, but not about Martin.

    I think BB would take Incognito before Martin. I think probably 28-30 NFL teams would take Incognito before Martin.

    Martin is a p-$$y, he also sucks as a player. I'll take Incognito in a heartbeat. Him and Mankins would bully DTs all season long. Move Connolly to center and you have a great OLine. Better than paying Mack elite money.

    I think BB wouldn't take either one of these clowns.

    He was as big or bigger than Incognito. You stop the abuse by kicking the guy's *****. Or at least the attempt gets broken up and it earns you respect with everyone in the locker room. Then it stops.

    If Martin couldn't take the trash talking in his own locker room. He must have been suicidal after the trash talking that happens every game. He doesn't have the mental toughness for any spot on our roster. And may even have a mental issue best addressed by professionals. I wouldn't touch him with a 10-ft pole.

    Unless you mean Incognito is the one you want to pick up. In that case, no thanks. He's a...jerk. To put it nicely.

    Agreed on both fronts. And while a team that needs OL would probably give Martin a look over (they'd probably give anyone a look over if they think it would help), every team is going to be apprehensive about bringing him aboard. With Incognito, outside of the negative publicity concern as as unfathomable some fans may think this is, his attitude is not exactly an unwelcome thing in Linemen circles.

    Some may feel it's unfair to Martin (believing he's a victim) but he did break that 'inner circle' thing in a way that just isn't going to go over well with teammates and players. Almost no players got behind him for that reason IMHO...

    Absolutely not. if you can't stand up for yourself then you aren't playing OL for any good NFL team. I wouldn't take him if they gave them cap relief for it.

    Due to the Ahern incident and life in the Age of Obama I don't think Kraft would touch Incognito if he were Steve Hutchinson reincarnated.

    right after this all broke, Martin texted Incognito and said that he didn't blame Ritchie or the other Dolphins, that he just can't deal with the NFL and locker rooms anymore.

    Incognito is no Saint, but it is Martin who is the real nutjob here. He found a convenient excuse to stop playing football and still get paid.

    Just talking about what goes on in the football game: Incognito is a better player than Martin, though he's not really a top-tier guard. Further, he's a risk for a personal foul on every single play. There's a reason he's not a St. Louis Ram anymore, and there's a reason he'll be an ex-Dolphin soon.

    Add to that the off-field stuff - and it's not just the Martin issue - I think there's no chance the Patriots would touch him.
