Miami’s latest incident involved starting offensive tackle Jonathan Martin. According to multiple sources, Martin left the team this week after being ribbed by teammates, and it’s unknown when Martin will return.

That brings us to our latest poll question: What is your take on the Martin situation?

Do you blame teammates? Most ribbing in the NFL happens to rookies in training camp. It’s November and Martin is a second-year starter. The Dolphins also are on a four-game losing streak and about to play their most important game to date of the season. Why are players picking on other players?

Or did Martin overreact? Martin became very upset and left the team. Now, embattled offensive lineman Tyson Clabo is expected to start Thursday night against the red-hot Cincinnati Bengals (6-2), who have won four games in a row.
