If the Miami Dolphins are going to "Suck for Luck" this season, it's going to be because they truly do suck, not that they're tanking games.
Jason Taylor became the latest Dolphin to try to end the talk surrounding Miami about tanking the season in order to gain the No. 1 draft pick to draft Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck.
"It's ridiculous," Taylor said, according to the Miami Herald. "Acknowledging it is condoning the stupidity. It's illegal for a player to throw a game whether it's for pay or for a pick. People are talking about ruining the integrity of a game for a draft pick.
"Nothing amazes me anymore. There is no tanking, no 'Suck for Luck' in this locker room."
Linebacker Karlos Dansby also voiced his displeasure for all of the "Suck for Luck" talk earlier this week.
"It's not right, bro. It's not right," Dansby sai. "We put too much into this, man, to have the fans say that — period, point blank — or even promote that campaign. It's kind of sad."
Taylor also said that there would be no chance the Fins would be tanking games, not as the team currently stands right now, at least.
"It never would come down from upstairs to lose games," Taylor said. "But if it did, there would be a revolt. [Head coach] Tony Sparano would quit before he let that happen. There would be no team on the field, because everyone would walk out of the locker room before that happened."
However, if the entire roster did walk out, that would certainly help the Dolphins' chances of getting the No. 1 pick. The Dolphins, Colts and Rams are all still winless.
