HBO 'Hard Knocks': Some Dolphins Players Upset Over Criticism

Dolphins tight end Michael Egnew and wide receiver Roberto Wallace responded to the latest episode of HBO "Hard Knocks," on Wednesday, and according to the Miami Herald, they were not pleased about how they were portrayed. In the episode, Miami coaches appeared laughing about Wallace's performance, watching practice tape and calling him "Ankle Weights Wallace." Egnew, meanwhile, bore the brunt of a dress-down from offensive coordinator Mike Sherman, who said he would cut him if he was the general manager.

According to the Herald, both players tried to put on a calm face for the media. Wallace said he couldn't control the criticism from the coaches, but that he would "come out here with a positive attitude every day and leave it at that." Egnew apparently shut his phone off before he could get any texts from friends or family.

Wallace played in only two games in 2011. Egnew is a rookie out of Missouri.
