Jarvis Landry: Dolphins will sweep the Patriots this year

Getty Images

The Dolphins haven’t swept the Patriots since 2000. Miami receiver Jarvis Landry says this is the year that changes.

Landry told Peter King of TheMMQB.com that he expects to beat the Patriots twice in 2017.

“If you’re a competitor, that’s the way you should feel, and I don’t mind saying it,” Landry said. “It’s time for a change. I have all the respect in the world for the Patriots, and I respect Tom Brady tremendously. But they’re not our big brother anymore.”

Since Tom Brady became the starting quarterback in 2001, the Patriots have dominated the AFC East like no team has ever dominated any division in NFL history — perhaps in the history of sports. Landry knows that, and he’s sick of it.

“New England’s won the division 14 of the last 16 years, something like that? It’s ridiculous,” Landry said. “It’s a problem. We cannot let that happen anymore. What I’ve seen is, when we play that game, sometimes we focus on the guys on the other side of the line instead of just focusing on us. And I want to be part of that change. I want to go into the games against New England expecting to win—that’s something we need to do.”

Bill Belichick will surely remind his players of those comments in six months or so, when it comes time for the Dolphins and Patriots to meet on the field.

    if you think bill needs to remind them of stupid comments to get pumped for a game you really dont understand the patriots.

    The dolphins can’t sweep the Bills

    Of course he did. Get behind the Jets and Bills, they haven’t handed out the offseason Lombardi yet.

    Yeah, and Seahawks fans have been around since before 2012. Everyone likes a good joke.

  11. tonyzendejas says: Apr 12, 2017 8:21 AM

    I thought Miami played hard in week 2 last year, fighting back from a 21-point deficit. But they’re the Dolphins…there’s a distinct limit to what they can accomplish.

    SQUISH
    DA
    FIIIIIIISH

  12. ebr362 says: Apr 12, 2017 8:22 AM

    Love the hell out of Landry and how he plays the game, but seriously dude, don’t give them bulletin board material!

    Extra “random” testing for Landry in 2017.

  14. ampats says: Apr 12, 2017 8:22 AM

    Landry is correct in that the Patriots are not the Dolphins big brother because the Patriots are the Dolphins DADDY !

  15. igocommando says: Apr 12, 2017 8:23 AM

    Well, that’s one way to put yourself on a random drug test list.

  16. minnesotamuggs says: Apr 12, 2017 8:23 AM

    This is a prime example of when “confidence” and “team speak” are completely annoying. I don’t care about either of these teams, but I don’t think being a “confident” NFL player automatically excuses completely delusional claims like this.

  17. mrreality1 says: Apr 12, 2017 8:23 AM

    OH No! He should have kissed the Patriots ass and said they’ll beat Miami the next 1,000,000 times in a row.

    Who cares, this means nothing. Good mind set for Landry.

  29. northerntanned says: Apr 12, 2017 8:38 AM

    As a long time Pats fan I remember when Marino would destroy the Pats over and over again….I remember thinking at the time how nice it would be to beat the fins… The Pat’s fate changed and they have won multiple AFC east titles (to the point where the Colts gave up and changed divisions- have to have a Colts dig;)) and do you know what? I never get tired of it…nor do I ever get tired of someone from the AFC antagonizing my beloved team (That will be one reason I’ll miss Rex).

  30. pastabelly says: Apr 12, 2017 8:39 AM

    Isn’t April great? You can say really stupid teams and not have to worry about payback for another five months. The Miami defense helped make Jimmy Garoppolo a fortune on a September day in Foxboro. It took him one half to make them look like the joke they are. They weren’t much better in week 17 in Miami either, another blowout.

  31. jazzawakens says: Apr 12, 2017 8:39 AM

    Ah, the off season.

  32. floriosnuts says: Apr 12, 2017 8:41 AM

    Sure they will….sure they will.

    Yes. Totally agree 100%

  34. fireroger says: Apr 12, 2017 8:42 AM

    Sounds like his mouth is writing checks his QB can’t cash. As usual.

  35. davebarnes21 says: Apr 12, 2017 8:42 AM

    I love it!

    Safe to say they will get beat like drums as we’ve been doing to them for 2 decades.

  36. rhd366 says: Apr 12, 2017 8:45 AM

    Good luck with that. Never happening.

  37. bobthebillsfan says: Apr 12, 2017 8:45 AM

    Wow, you go to the playoffs (as a wild card) for only the second time since 2001 and your head swells.

  38. rexryansthyroid says: Apr 12, 2017 8:45 AM

    This is why the AFC East will continue to run through N.E. for some time.Their opponents aren’t focused on the SB or making the playoffs, they just really want to beat them twice in a season. Never forget ’03 when the bills celebrated the 31-0 beat down in the first game of the regular season like it was a playoff game just to get beat by the same exact score in their next meeting.

  39. 12coltsfan12 says: Apr 12, 2017 8:46 AM

  40. v2787 says: Apr 12, 2017 8:46 AM

    I’d love to see it happen. I’d love to see anyone in the division sweep Belicheat and his team. I certainly hope it works out that way. It’s time for new blood on top of that division, for sure.

  41. u4iadman says: Apr 12, 2017 8:46 AM

    Probably not going to happen.

    Pats have owned the division since they were proven guilty of cheating a decade ago and it continues.

    Proof.

  42. 6ball says: Apr 12, 2017 8:47 AM

    .
    At this pre-draft point, one would have to say that the Patriots have improved their roster in the offseason while the Dolphins not so much. Moreover, both teams will be facing a more difficult schedule this year vs the NFC South and AFC West. Miami, playing second place opponents, will be hard pressed to repeat their 10 win season.

    Win a playoff game then make some comments like that Landry.

  53. remizak says: Apr 12, 2017 8:58 AM

    In other words, Landry is letting the Patriots live rent-free in his head. He’s another guy who can’t stop talking about the Patriots and says completely crazy stuff like that “big brother” comment. Who said the Patriots ever were anybody’s big brother? It’s all in your head, and that stuff will warp your perspective.

    Forget about the Patriots and focus on yourself and your team. Don’t even think about the Patriots until they’re next on your schedule. Believe me, that’s how the Patriots feel about the Dolphins and every other team in the NFL.

  54. patsfan says: Apr 12, 2017 8:58 AM

    Sounds a lot better than Landry saying…. Those guy’s are really good, we just Mark 2 loses on our record every season.

    What would you expect him to say? Love this kid, he is the heart and soul of this team. Miami had split the season series 3 years in a row before last season, it’s not impossible…. Unlikely, but not impossible.

  61. dxfiler says: Apr 12, 2017 9:10 AM

    Catching 100 5 yard slants a season does not make you great. Getting flagged for excessive celebration after catching said 5 yard slant still down 17 does not make you great. Making it into the end zone a couple times a year but wanting to get paid Julio money does not make you great, it makes you an average player the dolphins are about to overpay. Par for the course in Miami

    “… the Patriots have dominated the AFC East like no team has ever dominated any division in NFL history — perhaps in the history of sports”

    Maybe you haven’t heard of the Boston Celtics who were busy dominating all of the NBA when they won 11 titles in 13 years, including 8 in a row. Perhaps you haven’t heard of the Connecticut women’s basketball team that has won their league championship 23 times in the last 32 years. How about the NY Yankees that won 15 AL pennants in an 18 year stretch from 1947 to 1964 and somehow managed to win 10 World Series in that time as well.

  66. jjackwagon says: Apr 12, 2017 9:20 AM

    But they’re not our big brother anymore.”

    They never have been your big brother…they are more like the bully that’s been knocking you down and taking your milk money.

    And until you sweep them and win the division…they will continue to take your milk money.

  67. tgoat12 says: Apr 12, 2017 9:27 AM

    This dolphins origination, since horrible Donna Shalulla cheated, has been a bottom 5 franchise for 40 years. Not a rival of the patriots! They r a rival to the jags! Or jets! Go home!

    ===================

    Ben Roethlisberger did, “They’ve kind of had our number. We’re like the little brother trying to keep up with the big brother, in a sense.” And he was right, the stealers are more or less like the Pats’ slow witted little brother. The Phins? They are more like New England’s towel boy or maybe an inbred 3rd cousin from the SoFlo swamp lands.

  69. concmike says: Apr 12, 2017 9:37 AM

    Ring, ring……hello Mr. Landry this is the NFL Random Drug Screening Program….Please report to your designated testing facility tomorrow morning for a random sample….We read your comments and you definitely have to be on something…..

  70. harrisonhits2 says: Apr 12, 2017 9:38 AM

    Landry should look up the South Park episode that featured the Dolphins to see what the Pats are going to do to them this year.

    Lolz

  71. scottjameswebdesign says: Apr 12, 2017 9:43 AM

    I think Jarvis will find out that it will take more than strong feelings to beat the Patriots.

  72. theandy59 says: Apr 12, 2017 9:44 AM

    I have no problem with Landry, or for that matter any other player, believing that they can beat New England. What I don’t understand is the need to state it publicly. When I see that, I think they’re saying it as much to convince themselves as anyone else. And then I don’t believe they really believe it after all.

  73. tommyribs says: Apr 12, 2017 9:47 AM

    The Dolphins are good. Landry is really good.

    But please, don’t say stuff like that.

    You just look foolish.

  84. metitometin says: Apr 12, 2017 10:07 AM

    The Dolphins make the same mistake as the rest of the AFC East teams do against the Patriots. They treat the Patriot games like it’s their Super Bowl and don’t even focus on the other games they have to play outside their division. Jets and Bills make the same mistake. They get ramped up for the Patriots and lay an egg against everyone else. Seems like the Pats are in all their heads.

  85. felixinmiami says: Apr 12, 2017 10:10 AM

    Was he asked a question that led to this comment? No one seems to say. Maybe I missed it. If so then WTH is he supposed to say? Fans overreact to these kinds of comments. The contempt these teams have for one another is a about as extreme as is can get. This comment means nothing. It’s just off season noise.

  90. silverhornet says: Apr 12, 2017 10:46 AM

    I’m not sure it’ll happen in 2017, but this is absolutely the kind of mindset this Dolphins team needs to move forward after their 2016 season. Do your job, don’t worry about what the other team is doing. Believe in yourself. Make it happen.

    The Patriots will eventually relinquish their strangle hold on the division. And when that time comes, where will the Patriot fans run off to?

  91. tylawspick6 says: Apr 12, 2017 10:53 AM

    Maybe you haven’t heard of the Boston Celtics who were busy dominating all of the NBA when they won 11 titles in 13 years, including 8 in a row. Perhaps you haven’t heard of the Connecticut women’s basketball team that has won their league championship 23 times in the last 32 years. How about the NY Yankees that won 15 AL pennants in an 18 year stretch from 1947 to 1964 and somehow managed to win 10 World Series in that time as well.

    Maybe YOU have not heard there were no salary caps in those leagues back in those days, which means what NE is doing is easily as impressive of those other dynasties, if not more so.

    Throw in a rvial team’s owner “tasked” with hiring the new commissioner, partially to scheme and cheat the Pats with phony “scandals” that don’t make any sense, and voila, it’s hysterically incredible what the Pats are doing.

    Unless you can show me where Red Auerbach had a commissioner working with other owners in the NBA, to cheat the Celtics, BB and the Pats resume is more impressive.

  92. kevinb632001 says: Apr 12, 2017 10:58 AM

    all of the people commenting are acting like NE has been sweeping Miami. this isn’t like the 80s where Miami won every game for 10 years, Miami and NE typically split their series, and Miami has the best record against NE than anyone

  93. rootpain says: Apr 12, 2017 10:59 AM

    Interesting comment to compare/contrast. When the Patriots were down in the 3rd quarter of SB51, Brady was pumping up the team while on the sidelines. It succeeded because:
    1) From the first day of the new season, the Patriots were focused on winning the SB by focusing on only that days activities.
    2) Brady knew the Patriots could come back
    3) The rest of the team knew the Patriots could come back
    4) The Patriots had been trained to come back.

    Compare that to the Dolphins.
    1) One guy on the team has set an inappropriate goal for the team.
    2) There’s no 2.

    See the difference.

  94. miamiron says: Apr 12, 2017 11:00 AM

    Landry said, ” They’re not our big brother anymore.” BUT WHEN YOU’RE OUTSCORED 66-38 IT’S MORE LIKE, “WHO’S YOUR DADDY”

  95. beachsidejames says: Apr 12, 2017 11:03 AM

    Of course its always the big game for the Fins. They have to beat the Pats or they will remain at the bottom. At least Landry is fired up about it and thinks his team can compete.

    Nah, I won’t make fun of this guy, it’s nice to see a spark of competitiveness from other teams instead of the usual crying to the NFL about those meanies from Foxboro cause they and their widdle fans simply aren’t man enough to put in the work and effort to compete with the 5 time World Champion Patriots. It’s so nice to be with a REAL MAN’s team not a bunch of little wussies. 🙂

    And speaking of which…the NFL can release those PSI measurements at any time. We are waiting cupcakes. 🙂

    THEN DO IT!!! Get to Brady all game long just like 2015 final game & he WILL fold like a taco!!! More importantly the offense has to SCORE every time we get the ball no more SLOW STARTS!!!

  100. FinFan68 says: Apr 12, 2017 11:20 AM

    I love having Landry on the team but he can be frustrating with stuff like this. The look at me first down gesture when when down by 2 TDs, the times where he is reckless and gets stupid penalties and the times he has incendiary comments all lower his value a bit. But, that value goes back up some when you factor in his motivation effect on the rest of the team. I realize this is a personal taste issue. Landry definitely makes the Dolphins more interesting but I just wish he could show better self-control.

  101. afifthlombardiforthehaters says: Apr 12, 2017 11:22 AM

    Remember when this idiot took his helmet off after he scored a touchdown & got his team a nice penalty added on to the kickoff return to put the patriots in better field position to jam it down there throats lol.

    Keep up the good work there NITZY

    Couldn’t have just shut up and waited until the Dolphins actually got a victory over the Pats before saying something? I guess not, but then again the Dolphins just got to their first playoff game since the 2008 season so I can’t say I’m surprised.

    This dolphins origination, since horrible Donna Shalulla cheated, has been a bottom 5 franchise for 40 years. Not a rival of the patriots! They r a rival to the jags! Or jets! Go home!
    __________________________

    The Dolphins have been a bottom 5 franchise for 40 years…..yet somehow, they have the 4th highest winning percentage in NFL history (.563). Just ahead of the Patriots (.554).

    Want to try that again?

    I expected better from a Pats fan.

    He better be ready for a tidal wave of trolling on social media if they don’t win both games. Unfortunately he’ll have it coming because he chose to open his mouth

  108. lifetimefan says: Apr 12, 2017 11:35 AM

    You know if he had stopped at “What I’ve seen is, when we play that game, sometimes we focus on the guys on the other side of the line instead of just focusing on us” and then said he wants to be a leader to help turn that around, he would have been a good spokesperson for the team. The we will sweep them quote does nothing but put add pressure on the Fins and give chalkboard material to the Pats.

  109. nepatriot1 says: Apr 12, 2017 11:36 AM

    Miami is good? Or are they a flash in the pan? They have certainly spent money to complete, but it has yet to translate to winning with any consistency. Didn’t Miami make it to the playoffs one year with Tony Sporano as coach? Can’t remember it’s been so long. If I were a fan of the Dolphins, I’d probably pump the breaks on expectations of repeated playoff appearances until they do it more than one year in a row.

  110. spfripp says: Apr 12, 2017 11:41 AM

    You can slam Landry all you want for saying what he said, he brought that on himself. But anyone slamming him for feeling that way is nothing but a pathetic loser. Why? Because that is how losers think.

    Ask yourself this, how often has anyone in the AFC East challenge the pats for the division? Better yet, how often the AFC East had two playoff teams? An AFC East team FINALLY has a coach that can challenge Bellichick. I don’t care what the record was of the opposing teams were. That defense was the worse defense in team history and they still made the playoffs.

  111. bullcharger says: Apr 12, 2017 11:43 AM

    That sentiment has existed for a long time. Here’s one of my favorite snippets from a Buffalo News article from Dec 2013 titled “Patriot fatigue: New England’s winning ways are getting old”:

    “But here come the Patriots anyway, relentless figures emerging from the miasma, barely breaking stride as they step over your team’s smoldering carcass and head back to the playoffs.”

    Pre-season prognostication won’t change anything. Miami has to prove it on the field. Good luck with that.

  112. jazzawakens says: Apr 12, 2017 11:44 AM

    It might be an overly ambitious boast. But its better than saying “we have no chance against those guys next year, they will own us”. Was anyone seriously expecting that?

    It’s true.
    The AFC LEAST is a joke.

    ——-

    well let’s see.

    since the league realignment in 2002, each division has played 360 non-division AFC games. here are win totals by division:

    East – 194
    North – 174 (less than half)
    South – 170 (less than half)
    West – 182

    removing the division winner from those totals:

    East – 126
    North – 119
    South 108
    West – 119

    the division winner’s portion of those wins:

    East – 68
    North – 55
    South – 62
    West – 63

    number of seasons (out of 15) each division won half or more of their non-division AFC games:

    East – 11
    North – 8
    South – 6
    West – 9

  114. whispersd says: Apr 12, 2017 11:46 AM

    Dolphins feasted on a last-place schedule last year. It’s how the AFC East works.

    2013: Bills last
    2014: Bills second, Jets last
    2015: Jets second, Dolphins last
    2016: Dolphins second, Jets last

    If the pattern holds one more season, the Jets will be the “surprise contender” feasting off a last place schedule this year.

  115. envybreedsidiocy says: Apr 12, 2017 11:48 AM

    You can’t even sweep the Pats’ locker room after the game. Sit down and know your place in the Division.

    by the way, the Patriots won the division in 13 of those 15 seasons (and had the same record as the division winner in the other 2 seasons) so these numbers largley belong to them. in the other divisions, except maybe the South, it took multiple teams to accumulate those numbers

  119. mrreality1 says: Apr 12, 2017 11:58 AM

    The Patriots don’t need bulletin board material. They already know the other teams plays and let air out the of the footballs.

    Only prediction I will make is Miami will have communication issues when they visit Foxboro. Some predictions are really easy.

  120. jaxon51 says: Apr 12, 2017 11:59 AM

    As a New England fan and out of respect, I am reluctant to predict a sweep of the Dolphins by the Super Bowl Champion Patriots despite it having happened in 2016.

    I’m wondering where his prediction is coming from. Maybe I just lack vision. Lol!

  125. VenerableAxiom says: Apr 12, 2017 12:08 PM

    While highly unlikely, as last year the pats for the first time in a long time swept the Dolphins, stranger things have happened. If I were Gase, I’d want my player to feel that way. There’s a reason they play the games.

    This is a no win situation. If Jarvis Landry says the Patriots will beat them twice this season, he will get sh*t on for having no confidence and throwing his team under the bus. On the other hand if he says the Dolphins will beat them twice this season, he will get sh*t on because he is being too confident and “unrealistic”. Ya know. Jarvis Landry is a good young receiver. The Dolphins have talent. The Patriots are stacked and loaded with talent. But they didn’t win anything in 2017 yet. The only thing you are guaranteed in sports is a lose. Victory is earned one game at a time. You guys making fun of offseason champs, well y’all are already crowning the Patriots super bowl champions and potentially 19-0. Well newsflash they are still 0-0 like everyone else. We should be applauding Jarvis for having the confidence to not pout and give up because the opponent is too good and already concede defeat in the offseason. I suppose the moral of this story is just to say no comment to every question asked by the media.

I really thought that Pat’s fans were a bit more knowledgeable about the NFL but it looks like outside of their team, they really have no clue.

    I do like the Ryan Standinstill one, though. That was good. Nice to see someone coming up with something original for a change.

Hey guys, you don’t play on the team! You know that, right? 100+ comments because a professional athlete is confident that they’ll do well this season. Wow.

    Whenever a player says something dumb like this, there’s always people who think “Well what else was he supposed to say? He should be confident.”

    I have admittedly said the same thing before, but it’s wrong.

    Making a claim publicly can only hurt his team. It can’t help. Therefore, despite it being logical that he would think they will win, he doesn’t need to say it on the record.

    You can say that the Patriots or any other team don’t need any outside motivation to play well, but I think they try to use anything they can get. Miami certainly won’t catch NE sleeping in their first game now.

    I promised not to laugh, but Bahahahah! Hopefully for the Fins the Pats just laugh this one off too.

  147. fishyinalittledishy says: Apr 12, 2017 2:39 PM

    What did Landry say that is not true. The Patriots have dominated the AFC east. And he wants to put a stop or at least slow them down. Crazy stuff. What else should he have said, I want the Patriots to continue to dominate and I believe we will get a pasting in both games but hope we finish in the playoffs. Players of Landry type always come out with bravado, positive views, they are excitable because it’s what motivates them it’s all an act that’s how these guys get to were they are. On the other side of that QB’s tend to be more measured in what they say. Most defenders except probably for linemen usually have this brash trait telling us what they are going to do to who ever, it’s just a big act.

  148. walker1191 says: Apr 12, 2017 3:10 PM

    There are some folks on here praising these kind of chest-thumping comments. The majority seems to like them regardless of players or teams and there is no shortage of supporters.

    To those folks I pose this: The Patriots have been consistently among the best teams in the NFL for a very long streak. I can’t remember ever seeing a Patriots player trash talk in the media or on the social idiocy apps (except that Welker foot joke about Rex–that he got in trouble for). I’m sure you can google and find an example or two but my point is that it is not as common as it is on other teams and that is no doubt a reflection of their coach’s philosophy. They do their talking on the field in a businesslike fashion while the bravado of opponents gets ridiculed time and again.

    The thing about this whole story is, there’s no actual quote that says Landry said the Dolphins would sweep the Patriots.

    The Dolphins have really transformed the team into a formidable opponent in the AFC East…
    They finally solved their QB situation, Tannehill is their most complete QB since Marino.
    The Dolphins have always had good RB’s and nothing has changed on that front.
    Their WR core is strong and TE’s decent.
    The Offensive line is very good in pass protection and running.
    The Defense should be ranked in the top 10 this season…
    Strong defensive lineman, strong LB’s and competitive DB’s.
    The Bills are on another rebuild, the Jets are falling apart and will be rebuilding too, So If the Dolphins can’t give the Patriots a challenge then they will easily take the AFC East again.

    That’s what the Patriots are also great at (besides the game of football). They’ve got you beat already in your own head. You’re already making excuses.

    While you and whoever else are consumed with figments of your collective imaginations, they are busy beating you on the field. They’re simply better than you, and it’s not close.

    If you think you lost because you’ve convinced yourself that secret “bugging” captured some magical game information from the immortal Adam Gase that could completely flip the outcome of a game between two teams so vastly different in actual talent, then it’s obvious you need a massive reality check.
