All of this was prompted when Porter was asked how he felt about the Patriots, and if it was the same way he felt about the Jets.
"The same way they feel about me," Porter said. "So do you want me to say it first? Or do you want to tell me how they feel about me first."
Porter was told that the New England players might not have warm memories of him.
"I know they don’t like me," Porter said. "Let’s be honest -- they don’t like me, and that’s fair. I don’t like them, and that’s fair. It’s not like there’s a divorce happening. We never really were married anyway."
And he also made this clear ....
"The division goes to the last champion, period," Porter said. "The last champion was the Miami Dolphins. We have the championship until we lose it. It’s ours to lose. You can’t just crown the champion because they used to be the champions back in the day. That hardly makes any sense. It’s what you did the last year. You’re never judged off of what you did a couple years ago, it’s what you’re doing now. Last year, we were the champs.
"It comes through Miami, they’re the defending champs, you gotta go take the championship from them. That’s just the way it works."
And so begins Dolphins week ...
