Jarvis Landry predicted to a crowd in London this week that the Miami Dolphins will beat the New England Patriots twice in 2017 and that doing it while Tom Brady is there will add to the satisfaction.
In further comments to Peter King of MMQB, Landry didn’t back down.
“If you’re a competitor, that’s the way you should feel, and I don’t mind saying it,” Landry told King. “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.”
Miami lost twice to New England in 2016. But Landry cited a change in culture as reason for his confidence.
“Coach Gase,” Landry told MMQB. “He’s flipped the switch with us. New England’s won the division 14 of the last 16 years, something like that? It’s ridiculous. 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.”
Landry added that he wants to play his entire career in Miami. The Dolphins want to sign Landry, with one year left on his deal, to a long-term deal, but no agreement has been struck yet.
Landry often takes to social media to express himself.
Recently, Landry tweeted, “All I want to do is make the city proud..”
