Retweet of the Day - November 12, 2013

If there were any question whether or not the spillover from the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin bullying scandal would show on the field, the question was answered last night. The Dolphins lost to the previously winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers last night, 22-19, on Monday Night Football. The Dolphins fell behind 15-0 in the first half. they ran for a total of two yards. They blew a late lead in the fourth quarter after rebounding from the uninspired start.

Simply from a football standpoint, not having guard Richie Incognito or tackle Jonathan Martin, two fifths of their starting offensive line, probably crippled the running game. The distractions from the racially charged bullying case, in spite of denials by Dolphins players, were obvious. Now way would the Dolphins, who had a healthy pulse before the details of this story broke, have looked so hapless against an equally hapless and dysfunctional Buccaneers team.

Today's retweet is from Not Bill Walton (‏@NotBillWalton):

"Dolphins are really getting bullied right now by the Bucs. Now they know how it feels."
