Wallace also claimed his sentiment and choice of words were not designed to fire up the passing offense, which ranks 25th in the NFL.
"That really wasn't my intention," he told the Palm Beach Post. "Y'all asked me a question and I told y'all my honest answer. That's really what it is. I don't look at stuff in the media or whatever to get me fired up. I get fired up because that's what we do. We love to play the game and you just want to go out and be the best player you can be."
Wallace later added that the Dolphins need to step up their deep passing game. The speedster who specializes in catching the deep ball had just two catches for 59 yards against the Jaguars. He also had his three-game scoring streak snapped.

"We are going to have to continue to find more and more chances to use them, more and more situations where we have to put the ball in their hands. They showed today that they deserve to have the ball in their hands more, and we are going to have to work on that. We have to ... take some pressure off the quarterback."
Quarterback Cam Newton did not respond well to pressure against New Orleans, completing just 10 of 28 passes.
