Tyreek implies Dolphins teammates will curse each other out and hold grudges: ‘F—k you’

Tyreek Hill implied that members of the Miami Dolphins — perhaps on offense in particular — can sometimes hold grudges against each other instead of hashing things out productively and moving on after a bad play.

The star wide receiver said that on occasion, instead of sharing feedback on how to improve and using it in a productive way, teammates will get angry and curse each other out, perhaps missing out on chances to make each other better.

Hill was comparing the evolution of the Dolphins offense to his previous time with the Kansas City Chiefs, when he said the channels of communication were developed by quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

The 30-year-old’s comments are noteworthy considering how Hill’s two seasons with the Dolphins have ended. This past season, Miami had a chance to earn the No. 1 seed for the AFC playoffs but lost its last two games of the regular season, including its finale to the Buffalo Bills that decided the AFC East.

Subsequently, the Dolphins were forced to open the playoffs on the road and lost to the defending and eventual repeat Super Bowl champion Chiefs in one of the coldest games in NFL history.

The season before, Miami lost five games in a row down the stretch before winning its season finale. It made the playoffs but lost at Buffalo with Skylar Thompson forced to start at quarterback.

Interestingly, prior to the 2023 season, one NFL executive reportedly said the Dolphins maybe had “too many egos” on the team to succeed. It may have been a reaction to their acquisition of outspoken cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who himself has a somewhat checkered past with Hill.

Despite whatever shortcomings in communication he sees, Hill has had no problem sticking up for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa or wide receiver Jaylen Waddle. He has defended his quarterback against criticism from ESPN pundit Stephen A. Smith and others and recently dismissed trade rumors involving Miami’s No. 2 wideout.

It makes for an interesting outlook heading toward the 2024 NFL season, when the Dolphins will try again to win a playoff game for the first time in more than 20 years.
