‘I Was Kind of Pissed About It’ – Miami Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill Disappointed By NFL Decision

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill is about to board a transatlantic flight as a 1,000-yard receiver -- despite more than half the season remaining.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Tyreek Hill has never in his life played better than he is right now.

The Miami Dolphins‘ electric wide receiver went over 100 yards and caught a deep touchdown pass — again — in his team’s 31-17 victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday.

In doing so, he became the first player in the Super Bowl era to surpass 1,000 yards in his team’s first eight games.

Up next: A showdown for Hill and the Dolphins against the Kansas City Chiefs. It should be a dramatic homecoming to the place where Hill spent his first six NFL seasons.

Instead, Hill and his teammates will be boarding a flight to Germany on Monday — the result of the NFL awarding Dolphins-Chiefs to the city of Frankfurt.

Hill, for one, is not thrilled.

“I was kind of pissed about it, man, because obviously, I’ve got so many friends, I’ve got family there,” he said, shortly after torching the Patriots for 112 yards and a touchdown on eight catches Sunday. “One of my sons is there.”

“Just the energy, man, feeling that energy in Arrowhead would have been next level, but obviously I understand that the NFL, they want to be more global, and they want to send two of the best offenses over there, two MVP quarterbacks, dynamic offenses, and it’s going to be a good game,” he added. “It’s really good promotion for them. But going back to Arrowhead, it would have been sensational.”

Of course, that homecoming could still happen — in the NFL playoffs. The Dolphins and Chiefs have the AFC’s two best records, and Sunday’s game could be an AFC Championship Game preview.

The Chiefs have a much-improved defense to go with a sensational offense.

But they don’t have Hill, who is at the height of his powers. Hill is ahead of pace to meet his preseason goal of 2,000 yards in a season. He’s at 1,014 with eight touchdowns (both first in the NFL) with nine games to go.

“Yeah, man, it feels great,” Hill said. “God is great. I’ve been calling my shot since I came in the league. A lot of people doubted me saying I couldn’t do this and do that, but it’s all about believing in yourself.

“That’s the one thing my mom and dad always taught me. Here I am today. I’m very blessed, very thankful to be in this position, and no greater day to do it. I have my kids here today, so, no greater day to do it.”
