I'll refrain from any psychological profiling of either Incognito or Martin at the moment as the media seems to be doing. I don't think it's just Martin vs. Incognito. Based on early reports, it seems like Incognito as a ring leader of a whole offensive line unit vs. Martin. It also lists Mike Pouncey as an alleged culprit to whatever degree.
What galls me is how the coaching staff, other players and even management could stand pat and let a situation like this escalate. For them all to sit there and let this happen is blasphemy. This isn't something that just happened over night.
Stop Booing Tiki Barber.
Although this is still workplace harassment, none of us (unless some of the posters on here have played professional football lately) can really understand the difference between camaraderie and harassment in an NFL locker room. Although new reports are coming out stating that Incognito did not act alone in this harassment, I believe Martin had to have a positive relationship with some members of the team over the last season and a half. He had played this sport his whole life, has bought into the team mentality for the duration of it, and most likely wanted to work through it and play for those that possessed a mutual respect for one another.
Questioning the guys intelligence shouldn't be in correlation to why he didn't mention Incognito's ineptness earlier. I think we should instead praise the man for being smart enough to bring up this ordeal before he himself responded to Incognito in an irresponsible manner.
Pathetic. Figures Pouncey was involved, him and his brother wore Free Hernandez hats to a club and said they did it because you are innocent until proven guilty. Two troublemakers and i hope Miami doesnt make the playoffs
And it's strange. Philbin's son recently died. He has demonstrated to be an emotional person and one would assume he'd be able to see the problem at hand and relate relate to Martin. It's not as if they do not do thorough research into the players they draft. Jeff Ireland has actually been criticized for being too thorough as of late.
