Mike Wallace clarifies his comments after Miami Dolphins game

The Miami Dolphins beat the Cleveland Browns but their high priced free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace caught one pass for 15 yards. After the game he was frustrated and vented.

“I don’t want to talk. I don’t feel like talking about it,” Wallace said, via The Palm Beach Post. “Ask Coach. It’s not my game plan.”

Now, Wallace is trying to back track and clarify his comments.

“I’m mad at myself just because I didn’t have a good game,” Wallace said Monday, according to The Associated Press. “That’s all.”

He reiterated that the true source of his frustration was himself and not the coaching staff.

“I was upset with myself,” Wallace said. “It wasn’t really anything else to do with anything. I would’ve told you the same thing regardless. If you ask me about the plays, I don’t really have the answer. That’s all I meant by that.”

Wallace’s offensive coordinator Mike Sherman had his back.

“Mike’s a competitor. He wants to feel a part of the game, as I hope that he would,” Sherman said. “He came here to be a factor in our season and our success. The fact that he’s disappointed he only caught one ball, that’s expected. I have no problem with that.”

    All I will say is he helped open it up for Hartline to have a good game. Mike’s time will come.

    After Mike Sherman spoke, ENOUGH said. Now let’s move on to the Colts game please.

    I’m glad he’s not in the Black and Gold anymore, that’s for sure. Wallace saying “it’s not my gameplan” (when he only caught one ball on five tries) is highly indicative of his level of self-interest.

    And the way he handled it, saying he was misunderstood rather than simply owning the frustration and saying something like “I intend to work on controlling my emotions better” says a lot about what type of player he’ll be for Miami as the season progresses.
