Mercury Morris upset '72 Fins labeled divas

In honor of Chad Ochocinco's recent bull-riding exhibition, NFL.com blogger Adam Rank listed the "top six NFL divas who need to go away."

There was a strong AFC East thread:

  1. 1972 Dolphins

  2. Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens, Bengals receivers

  3. Jay Cutler, Bears quarterback

  4. Mark Sanchez, Jets quarterback

  5. LaDainian Tomlinson, Jets running back

  6. Albert Haynesworth, Redskins defensive tackle

Mercury Morris, the outspoken running back from that undefeated Dolphins team, took offense in an interview with "The Finsiders," a podcast produced by the team.

"That's why you have these sour grapes like people calling us a diva," Morris said. "People don't really understand what it takes to get there. They think it's simply winning, it's more than that. Because of the 4,680 tries that they've had since the National Football League came into existence, it's only happened one time, and we're sitting in that seat."
