Check out Buffalo's schedule after the bye week. OCTOBER: Three divisional games in a row, followed by a trip to Baltimore. Then they get a breather with the Cardinals before their gauntlet of hosting the Jets, at New England, home against St. Louis, at Seattle, and at Miami. They'll be eliminated by Week 14.

The Jets come out of their bye with five division games in six weeks. Their final four are at Pittsburgh, home against Seattle and New England, and at St. Louis. Forget about them as well.

The schedule makers also smiled on New England. Three-game homestand in October. Their main worries are a mid-September game at Arizona, and then they’ve got a short week around Christmas between their trips to Miami and the Jets.

by the way Mr. Dynasty...the pats arent a dynasty, gotta win at least 3, likely 4 to be considered that...the Cowboys were a dynasty....the 72-73 dolphins arent known as a dynasty for winning two superbowls, and they won theirs back to back.

#2....you didnt go undefeated, the only way you should be compared to that team is if you win 18 in a row THIS Season AND win the superbowl....

#3....finally, if you are gonna use back to back comparisons, take this on for size...., the 72 Dolphins went 17-0 and the 73 Dolphins went 15-2, both teams won superbowls, which is consecutive, which is something your club has yet to do....if u add up the records with both these seasons combined that would be 33-2....no reason why the pats should be compared with our team...to match or pass that mark you would have to win your first 15 games or more....

good luck even being put in the same league as our super bowl winning franchises, you will sure need it :www:

sorry for the smack, but someone had to point this out :)

I am not trying to take away anything from that undefeated team, that was an amazing accomplishment and will probably never be duplicated again BUT that team played the weakest schedule of any SB Champion while on the flipside the Pats last year played a very tough sched and beat all the top teams en route to the title.

Here is an article about the '72 sched:

yes, it´s true the sched helped the the dolphins go undefeated, but no matter who you play, it´s still too hard to be undefeated. last year, the pats beat tough teams but couldn´t beat crappy teams like Buffalo and Washington. the 72 dolphins didn´t lose to losing teams, and they beat the tough teams in the playoffs proving that they were not a product of an easy schedule as people thought.

an undefeated season is an undefeated season no mattter who your opponents are. :nana:
i understand that you being a jet fan dont like the fact that a hated rival was once undefeated while your team has only once won 12 or more games in a season.

But you know what we still went undefeated and even teams today have easy schedules and still can't win a game

Again, I was not trying tot ake anything away but someone pointed was putting down the Pats and in the interest of objectivity i felt the ned to defend them. Keep in mind I hate the Pats just as much as I hate Miami so I wasn't just saying it b/c I don't like Miami and I wasn't alive when they won their 2 SBs but I know enough from reading and seeing programs on them to know how special those teams were, I would even say your '73 team was better than '72 team was better even though they lost a couple of games.

Thanks for the defense nyjunc

Some fin fans are so insecure with their current team that they feel the need to reach back 32 years to find a period in which the fins excelled. Any amount objectivity in any argument just hits a brick wall in their head.


As for me, I will take my teams 15-2 record in 2004 over a 17-0 record 30 years ago, if it means that I was there to enjoy it and be a part of the historic season.

:huh: I don't see any insecurity .... It's more like being proud of what your football team has done no matter when the championships occurred !!!

As for "hitting a brick wall" :lol: most of the team's in the AFC East must have walls as high as the Empire State building .....

Yes YOU can be proud of your teams accomplishments but considering how long the Pats have been an NFL team it sure took them a hell of a LONG time to get there !!

The Dolphins were the second team to win back to back s-b's and the ONLY team to go completely UNDEFEATED for an entire season... That feat has NEVER been duplicated and probably NEVER EVER will .....

The wins record that the Pats fans keep trying to compare with the Dolphins, is not even close to what the Phins accomplished !! The 17-0 record was completed in ONE season....

Not expanded out over 2 seasons !!!!!!!

Sorry but there is NO comparison patsie fans .....

As a Bills fan, I don't like the early bye or December weighted toward away games, but you play the cards dealt you. I will be disappointed if Buffalo doesn not improve on 8-8 this year.

The Fins will win the East and capture home field throughout the PO's.

As far as the schedule, the NFL finally took away the home field avantage from NE in December over Miami. This will be enough to tilt the table in favor of Miami.

So, Unclemeat, how many times in the last 5 years have you made that same prediction?

I'm not going to make that same prediction for my Bills. I suspect that the Patriots might be too strong at the moment to give up the top spot.

How can you get home field without a quality QB?

Right now I see the front runners, as based on last season being the Pats, maybe Indy and possibly Tennesee. I also see Cincinatti as being a possible Cinderella, but a lot of that is riding on Palmer playing well.

pats or the Dolphins in the East. The north will be the ravens, the bengals will be better, just not good enough. South might be the most competative, I think it will be indy though. The west should be kc, I'm hoping that the broncos fall apart.

The bye comes too soon for Buffalo NE, and the Jets to do them much good.

Buffalo will be .500 at best. That tough schedule after the bye will break them and they will have to rally late in the season to reach 8-8.

The Jet's ride all depends on their QB. If the oline can keep him standing. Not only does this team face 3 of the better defense's in the entire league in their own division, they face 2 other ton 10 defenses in the Ravens and Steelers. Odd's to me are not good.

NE. What can you say other than Superbowl champs. Tough out of conference schedule with Indy, KC, baltimore amoung other's. To get there again they have to earn it.

Miami? The bye couldn't come at a better time. After a soft(for the NFL) oppoent in AZ Miami gets a break before continuing 2 more games of a west coast ball. I'm biased but I think the D will be just as good and the O can only be better. Facing the Rams bother's me, but it's no longer the greatest show on earth. Dec schedule is better for us but we still have to go to Den and Baltimore, with a game against NE thrown in the middle. Playoff team, and threat for it all if we can get over the NE hump...

i agree. and with the henry/mcgahee duo in buffalo, they GOTTA be the favorites. i don't care what happened last season
