Wife of Dolphins CB lashes out at Tannehill on Twitter

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) The Miami Dolphins' latest loss has prompted a Twitter tirade from the wife of cornerback Brent Grimes directed at quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

Miko Grimes, who has 10,000 Twitter followers, is known for her strong opinions and profane postings, and has criticized Tannehill before. But her reaction to Sunday's 18-12 loss to Indianapolis was particularly vehement.

She tweeted that no legitimate coach will come to Miami as long as Tannehill is the quarterback, and he's the reason for their poor season.

The rant is one more sign this season can't end soon enough for the Dolphins (5-10). They've lost three games in a row and are assured of finishing last in the AFC East for the first time since 2007, when they went 1-15.
