Dolphins’ Bell fires back

Posted by Chris Brown on December 16, 2011 – 1:00 pm

Dolphins S Yeremiah Bell was the one that got the Bills amped up in the first place when he accused them of “laying down” in the first meeting between the two teams in Week 11, won by Miami 35-8. Buffalo’s players didn’t appreciate the opinion or some of the hits after the whistle that were being doled out on occasion by the Dolphins’ players. When asked about his comments firing up the Bills, Bell didn’t care fully standing behind what he told the Palm Beach Post moments after that first game.

“I stand by that, (and) when they watch the film they know that too. Now it’s time for Round 2,” Bell told the Palm Beach Post this week. “The game is full of trash talking, but that’s just part of the game. I like to talk noise; if that gets them riled up then I’m all for it. Bryan Cox is loving it.”

Bryan Cox, who is a Dolphins linebackers coach, is remembered by most Bills fans for his double-bird salute to them during a game between the Dolphins and Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium in 1993.

Dolphins DB rips Bills

Dolphins S Yeremiah Bell had a harsh assessment of the Bills performance on Sunday against Miami.

Bell didn’t mince words in his review of Buffalo’s offense.

“In the first half, when we jumped on them, the way the game was going and the way they were playing, they laid down,” Bell told the Palm Beach Post. “We were putting a hat to them and flying all over the place. When we don’t make mistakes, we execute, and everybody’s in the right spot, we’re a pretty good defense. We did that, and I feel they laid down.”

I hope Bell is aware that he has to come up to Buffalo to play the Bills a second time in four weeks. And one can be sure that his comments won’t be forgotten.

Fins: Bills wanted it more

Posted by Chris Brown on December 19, 2010 – 9:59 pm

Several Dolphins players were looking for answers after Sunday’s loss at home to the Bills knowing their playoff hopes are all but dashed now needing to win their last two games and get some help. In assessing what happened Sunday Miami safety Yeremiah Bell just thought the Bills wanted the game more.

“It’s very frustrating. It’s sickening to the stomach,” said Bell. “You come into a game, you know what you need to accomplish and then you go out, you don’t make plays, and you just let it slip by. 

“We let them get ahead of us. We didn’t make enough plays and they made the plays. They came in here, they were hungrier then we were and they won the game. I guess we weren’t hungry enough, because like I said, we all knew the situation, and we let it go.”

Fellow defensive back Vontae Davis felt the same way.

“We let this one slip away,” said Davis. “We didn’t come out to play. They obviously wanted it more. They just executed more than we did.”
