Mike Wallace clarifies his comments on Dolphins' game plan

Miami's receiver has changed his tune a day after his harsh reaction to a bad game.

Mike Wallace clarified his postgame comments following the Miami Dolphins' victory over the Cleveland Browns, saying he was angry at himself for his lack of production.

His comments Sunday deflected from the team's win as Wallace told the press to ask the Dolphins' coaching staff why he only had a single catch in Miami's 13-point victory. The receiver's tune changed Monday when he told the Associated Press, "I'm mad at myself just because I didn't have a good game."

Wallace was signed to a five-year, $60 million contract this offseason to become the Dolphins' No. 1 receiver and primary deep threat for quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

The 15-yard debut shouldn't worry Dolphins fans too much, though. Wallace has a history of being a hot-and-cold receiver who's able to have a 100-yard game at a moment's notice, or be completely ineffective. He had three games in 2012 where he failed to reach 15 yards receiving, but another four where he finished with 75 yards or more.
