Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace is not happy with his role in the team’s offense after the Week One game against the Cleveland Browns. Wallace hauled in just one catch in the game, but the Browns were still able to come away with a win.

That didn’t matter to Wallace. He wants his stats.

Wallace was one of the top paid free agents in the offseason and he is hoping to have a big season in South Beach, however, he wasn’t able to make the immediate impact that he had hoped for and he openly expressed his unhappiness after the game.

After the game, Wallace was asked about his role in the offense and he was visibly frustrated.

“Ask coach. Not my game plan,” Wallace said during the post-game press conference.

The good news is that the team got the win and they will be able to build on their momentum heading in to Week Two. The bad news is they could have a diva wide receiver on their hands.

Let’s hope this doesn’t get ugly.

    Wallace is being alittle crybaby now???Both Hartline and Gibson had a great day, especially Hartline.. Even Clay had about 5 catches… Throw away from Haden (on Wallace) was most likely the plan.. And it seemed to work… Tannehill, pretty solid.. Completed 63+% of his passes for 272 yds and 1TD, 1int… Overall?? Offense: C+ (running game?) Defense: A+.. 3Ints and 6 sacks!!
    THE DOLPHINS WON!!!
    And he’s crying?? Maybe if they list and he thought he could have changed the game.. But they WON…
    Stop being a SELFISH LITTLE CRYBABY!!!
    1-0 baby!! Undefeated!!!
    Phins up!!!

      There… Fixed it..

    Something wrong with the offensive play scheme that doesn’t include their 60 million dollar aquisition ,, Solia & Randy Starks have not been happy either- well , Dolphins have a tendency to lowball their important veteran playmakers – who want to stay in Miami for the right offer. Wallace was anticipating a big showing , as he mouthed to all the week preceding the game .. Visibly unhappy Wallace walked off the field while players & staff kept him away from the press.

    Tannehill’s target has been Hartline more likely than not to keep his interception rate low. The fans & Mike would love to see the 60 million dollar man do some magic
