Dolphins C Mike Pouncey Calls Jets LB Aaron Maybin 'A Joke'
Mike Pouncey took his turn at firing up the back-and-forth banter between the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets.
The Dolphins center was angered Thursday by comments made by Jets linebacker Aaron Maybin, who told ESPNNewYork.com on Wednesday that New York wants to ''knock out'' Miami running back Reggie Bush, ''but we're out to do it legally.''
''I don't even know why Aaron Maybin is talking,'' Pouncey told reporters in Miami. ''He's done nothing in this league to even open his mouth. I don't even want to talk about him. He's a joke.
''I think it's just him just wanting to get his name get said in the NFL. I think that's all it is.''
Maybin said he had ''no thoughts, no words'' in response to Pouncey's comments, and added that he never intended to stir things up with what he said.
''There was no trash talk coming from this side,'' Maybin said. ''Basically, I'll say the same thing I said yesterday: In order for us to beat Miami, we have to stop the run and that means eliminating Reggie Bush. However people wanted to take that out of context, that's fine, but I'm not going to get into it.''
Maybin insisted he wasn't offended by what was said by Pouncey, including the center taking a shot at the linebacker's limited playing time by saying he would have to be ''on punt team to say something'' on the field to him.
''Trash talk, it's all for the newspapers,'' Maybin said. ''I didn't have any of that for you yesterday. I don't have any today.''
