    Mike Wallace upset after quiet Miami Dolphins debut

    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace was in no mood to chat after being used as a $60 million decoy in Sunday's 23-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns.

    Wallace got his wish in drawing Joe Haden as a shadow corner; he promptly was limited to 15 yards on one reception.

    "I don't want to talk. I don't feel like talking about it," Wallace said, via The Palm Beach Post. "Ask Coach. It's not my game plan."

    The extra attention paid to Wallace freed up Miami receivers Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson for a combined 16 receptions and 191 yards. It's still surprising that Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman failed to call a screen or a slant to get the ball in his best playmaker's hands.

    Quarterback Ryan Tannehill attributed Wallace's meager output to double coverage that caused him to look elsewhere in his progressions.

    "I've been there playing receiver back in the day when the defense takes you away and it's frustrating," said Tannehill, a receiver early in his Texas A&M days. "But by them taking him away, it really opened up Gibson and Hartline to make plays."

    That's the key. The Dolphins were counting on Wallace's ability to draw extra defensive attention when they shelled out the big bucks in March.

    Wallace might be miffed, but the plan worked out just fine against a nasty Browns front seven Sunday.

    Missed Wallace yesterday to be honest in the B and G. Especially when Cotch had a chance on that deep pass from Ben that was incomplete.
