    Schedule Makers had it in for the Fins

    Not only have we played the Steelers, Jets, Pats, GB, Minny, and Cinncy, as well as preparing to play Baltimore and Tennessee

    But, we played Cincy coming off of their bye, will play Baltimore coming off of their bye, and will play Tennessee coming off a bye....is it just me or does that 3 games in a row vs. teams coming off of byes seem a bit unfair?

    I doubt the schedule makers care whether the Dolphins win or lose.

    Really I only think the bye week thing matters when your facing great x and o's coaches like Belecheat and Rex Ryan..

    Fisher and Harbaugh are not that..

    They are just great motivators..

    I could see a few trick type plays on special teams from Harbaugh tho.

    that is a little bit unfair, but honestly coming off a bye does not mean ****. if anything they teams can be a little less focused since they had a week off and maybe were not as focused.

    we are playing real good football, and riding momentum. a bye can mean a team comes out real strong, or they can come out real rusty. look at the jets this past week, 2 weeks off at home vs a banged up team to prepare, and get shutout.

    coming off a bye does not guarentee anything.

    The bye can help or hurt, it clearly didn't help us last week.

    I think too much emphasis is placed on a bye. It could be a good thing in terms of getting healthy, but the downside can be rust. It is tough to simulate the speed of the actual game in practice. It can also slow teams momentum that are coming off a couple/few wins.

    yes. the 2 teams we play coming off a bye r the ravens, and the titans next week. u can argue that the minn game was like a minny bye for them since they had 10 days to prepare playing the opening thursday night game of the season.
