08:02 AM ET 11.07 | Even in a win, something went awfully wrong for the Dolphins -- Vontae Davis was reportedly late to a practice and involved in an argument with receiver Brandon Marshall. And yes, the argument between Davis and Marshall started when Marshall called out Davis and then threw the ball at his head, as reported by Fox-TV. But the reason most responsible and most alarming about Davis missing Sunday's game against the Chiefs is that the Dolphins believe Davis was drunk the night before the Saturday practice to which he was late. And when he showed up at the Miami facility, a source said Davis had the smell of alcohol and was suffering from an apparent hangover.

Phins win two in a row, after they beat the Skins next week.

Book it.

I'd be hungover too if I played for the Dolphins. The pain probably isn't as bad.

And they still put a beatdown on the Chiefs. Guess they did not need him too much.

Like this clown is the first player ever to show up with a hangover. When I was in the Air Force we had authorised hangover day every Thursday. Media is just trying to blow something up.

Loss.... Just like you guys trying to lower our chances at landing Andrew Luck.

Life is too short to drink bad scotch.

Poor Dolphins, just can't lose for winning. And now their poor fans are miserable because they won a game. A game like yesterday just might cost Sparano his job.

You'll need to make a trade with the Colts but that is not likely to happen.

Back in the day we used to say, it only cost a nickel to drink top shelf, it's worth it.

You got that right. Irsay is smiling like a bride on her wedding night this morning.

At least he didn't show up for practice that Saturday with white powder all over his face. There was a time a few players in the NFL did.

He's sending the Dolphins a lovely bouquet this morning.

Even if it cost us the following year's 1st round pick, it would be worth it.
