Most NFL players say that they let a game sit with them for about 12 hours before they put it behind them and start to focus on their upcoming opponent.
Karlos Dansby apparently doesn't believe in that policy.
The Dolphins' linebacker, who called Ravens fullback Le'Ron McClain a "coward" after Sunday's game for allegedly spitting in the face of Dansby's teammate Channing Crowder, continued his bashing of the Ravens yesterday, a full day after Baltimore's 26-10 win over Miami.
"It's real soft, offensive line was soft, fullbacks were soft, [expletive] quarterbacks was soft, whole offensive scheme was [expletive] soft," Dansby told South Florida reporters yesterday when asked about the Ravens. "That's the most disappointing part about it."
The Ravens were able to put up 402 yards of offense against the Miami defense, but Dansby doesn't feel like Baltimore truly beat up his defensive unit because they picked up a large portion of their yards on dump-off passes and screens to Ray Rice and Willis McGahee.
"That's just their scheme, man," Dansby said. "They soft. They want to take a shot. If it ain't there, they want to check it down. They don't ever want to take risks.
"They'll screen you to death, check it down, all high-percentage offense. They're scared. [Joe] Flacco will throw the game away, which he will if you get them behind."
As for Spitgate, Dansby is clearly still upset by the whole incident, and claims that if he had seen it happen, things could have gotten nasty.
"The spit escalated it to a whole another level," Dansby told reporters. "I wish I would've known or seen it. On the street, you'd get killed for that. The whole damn sideline was trying to calm him down, but they didn't understand what happened.
"Once they found out what happened then, damn, you should've whupped his ass. He asked me on the sidelined should he go whup him. I'm like, 'Yeah, go whup him,' but then I'm like, 'I need you, if you do it, you're gonna hurt your team. So, you have to hold back."
