The Dolphins need a new left guard, given the no-brainer decision not to bring back Richie Incognito. Enter third-rounder Billy Turner, who brings a fitting set of experiences to the spot previously occupied by one of the most notorious bullies in the NFL.http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/20 ... iami-line/
“I was the one getting bullied all the time by my older brother when I was growing up,” Turner said recently, via Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. “When I started playing football, I played up with older guys. I came in and played center right away, and everyone thought they were going to beat me up and bully me because I was younger. They thought I was going to be soft.
“But I just got out there and unleashed my anger. The anger I had built up from getting mad and [peeved] at my older brother was what came out in my play. That’s how I developed that strategy and that style of playing with a chip on my shoulder.”
He now plans to bully opponents, in a way that’s socially acceptable.
“When I put the helmet on and I snap it up, it’s like a switch getting turned on,” Turner said. “I’m [full throttle] every play. I’m not going to give up on anything. And from the moment that ‘h’ comes out on the ‘hut’ I’m going to be as aggressive as I possibly can with the play call, trying to beat that guy and trying to bruise him.”
