Ravens WR Steve Smith had some harsh words for Dolphins players who complained about the grass field at M&T Bank Stadium after Sunday's 38-6 loss to Baltimore. "Since Miami go their ass whupped, of course they're going to complain about it. It looked pretty good for us. I've been to Miami. They shouldn't be barking when they just started putting grass on half of the field when they had dirt in baseball. Beggars can't be choosers."

And the ADA asked if Richard Hernandez's behavior led to Hernandez being shot at or killed. Thomas said no. "Why can't we just take out our guns when we start yelling each other?" the ADA said.
