Jarvis Landry: Miami Dolphins WR calls fans 'embarrassing' for QB chant

Oct. 14 (UPI) — Jarvis Landry was embarrassed when fans at Hard Rock Stadium were chanting for the Miami Dolphins to bench Jay Cutler last week.

The Dolphins wide receiver discussed what he thought of the home fans cheering for the team to bring in backup quarterback Matt Moore during a 16-10 win against the Tennessee Titans.

“We don’t buy into the fans of who they want to play quarterback,” Landry told reporters Thursday.

“If they want to change the players, we can’t buy into all that. I believe it’s disrespectful. A man that comes out here and works his [expletive] off and for people to not really understand what’s really going on. Or to not even have touched the field before, to say we want somebody else to be playing, they don’t understand the situation or know what’s going on. They just want to be on Twitter. They just want to start a [expletive] chant and it’s embarrassing, as a player to have fans like that.”

After Sunday’s win, Dolphins coach Adam Gase said the team wouldn’t be giving the fans a say about who would be playing quarterback.

“They chanted for Matt Moore last year when we played against Tennessee,” Gase said. “I’ll make the decision on quarterback. We’re not going to take public polls.”

Cutler, 34, joined the Dolphins this offseason following a season-ending injury to starter Ryan Tannehill. This season he has a career-worst 74.8 quarterback rating. He has three touchdowns against three interceptions in four games for the Dolphins.

The Dolphins face the Atlanta Falcons at 1 p.m. on Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
