Tyreek Hill: Defenses will be scared s–tless of me and Jaylen Waddle

When wide receiver Tyreek Hill was first traded to the Dolphins, he said he wanted to challenge new teammate Jaylen Waddle to a race to see which of them is faster, but he said later in the spring that a race between the two men isn’t going to happen.

Hill may not be racing Waddle, but he’s still keeping an eye on how fast the 2021 first-round pick is moving. Hill said on Thursday that Waddle is even faster than he initially thought and he shared his belief that opposing defenses will be frightened by the prospect of defending that kind of speed.

“They’re scared s–tless,” Hill said, via Cameron Wolfe of NFL Media. “He’s faster than I thought. When I first got here, I was like OK, he’s a 4.3. Typically when you see 4.3 guys they don’t run as fast on a football field. But J-Dub he actually runs a 4.3 on the football field — there’s a difference. I’m very excited for the season. I can’t wait to see him blossom and continue to move his game forward, which I know he will.”

Any discussion of the impact that the Dolphins wide receivers will have this season pushes attention back to quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and the questions about his ability to make the most of what Hill, Waddle and others bring to the table. The answers to those questions will go a long way toward determining Miami’s fate this season.

  1. The more I hear Tyreek open his mouth and say ridiculous crap, the more I start to suspect that he realizes he made a massive mistake leaving Mahomes and this is just his way of coping with it.

  2. Not a Dol-Fan, but I live down here, and I think this is finally the year the locals have something to be happy about watching this offense. IF, and it’s a big if, Tua can get these speed demons the ball in stride and on target.

  3. If defenses can shut that KC offense down, they can shut anyone down.

  4. Your QB ranked 29tj last season in completions 12 or more yards down field.

    So NO , no one will be scared

  5. There are players and defences laughing their socks off at Tyreek running his mouth off, again !!!

    Someone tell him the best thing he can do, Is shut up

  6. The Ravens secondary is stacked. They aren’t afraid of anybody. See you 9/18 Tyreek.

    =====================================================
    Or he’s simply being honest.

  8. Sounds like he’s doing an awful lot of patting himself on the back. The sign of someone not at all confident in themselves and what they’re saying nor confident in the decision to leave his old team.

  9. It’s easy to say that this guy talks way too much, but I guess when you’ve got a podcast that needs clicks, you got to say stuff every day that raises eyebrows.

  10. I can’t help but believe the other Dolphins’ players, especially Tua, would just like for Hill to shut up. Is there a week that’s gone by since he was traded that he hasn’t babbled something or other about how spectacular a season Miami will have this year…because he’s now there?

  11. Next he’ll say Tua has the strongest arm he’s ever seen. I get it. On paper this looks nice, but at certain point you cross the line of talking too much. There are a lot of great teams in the AFC, and yours has the one of the lesser of the QBs.

  12. The Dolphins have 3 of the fastest top 10 player on the field (Hill, Waddle and Mostert). He is not wrong, but I do wish he would shut up for a while.

  13. Everyone loves a braggart, and humility is an undesirable trait. And please don’t mistake or pass off Hill’s comments as confidence. His mouth actually runs faster than his feet.

  14. They would if those recievers were in KC, Buffalo, or a handful of other places. Miami, not so much.

  15. The Dolphins GM should of snuck a shut your mouth clause in Hill’s contract. Does this guy ever shut up? Mark my words, when mid October comes around and this clown is averaging a Peter Warrick like 9.5 yards per catch and 2 td’s, his chatter will fall on deaf ears.

  16. Bills db nick McCloud runs a 4.3. Elam has stopped to burn. Tre White is running and jumping on the sideline. You can scheme to keep speed guys in front of you. A fierce pad rush helps. Mahommes was a unique innovator with scramble ability. Tua not so much. Mahommes and Allen have spectacular arm strength. Tua not so much. No one is pooping you too. It’s been done before without success. One bump of the line negates that extra one tenth of a second. They aren’t racing sprints, they are playing football. It won’t matter that much in real football games. Under throws will result in picks.
