    Ryan is better? Maybe, but it is debatable. You have to remember that Ryan inherited a 9-7 team, while Sparano inherited a 1-15 team, with one of the least talented rosters in NFL history. Ryan has taken them to the AFC Championship game(both losses), but lets not forget he had a lot more to work with since day one. Head to head Miami does have the upper hand on the Jets. Whether it be talent, coaching, confidence, etc., that is up for debate. All we do know is that four of the past five games have gone the way of the Dolphins. At what point does a streak like that get credit instead of picking excuses to cover it up?


    The Jets/Dolphins will probably split again this season between the 2 games.
    Maybe, but if any team has a chance at sweeping the other, Miami is more likely to sweep the Jets. Recent history points to that.

    The Dolphins are not a team that is going to get blown out much because they play conservative not to lose style, so they keep turnovers down and don't beat themselves much. And now the Dolphins defense is pretty good.

    Henne was TO machine what you taklkin bout Willis?

    Ryan's team seems to perform pretty well in the playoffs, but struggles against the 7-9 Dolphins? What gives?
    If you are going to note the only win came down to the wire you must also not that all 3 of Miami's wins have come down to the wire and the largest margin of victory in the 4 games was the Jets 8 pt win last year.

    Miami is not a bad team, they can play w/ pretty much anyone. They had some breaks go their way and capitalized in those 3 wins. All 4 games btw the 2 could have gone either way, one of the wins Miami had THREE non offensive TDs and won by just 5, last year in a game that set offesinsive football back 100 years they won by 4 and Holmes dropped a wide open TD pass. The Jets are clearly the better team but Miami can play w/ anyone for a game, their problems have been focusing against the average/bad teams.

    Both teams are set up identically but the Jets can run the ball with anyone back there - we cannot and that impacts QB play - Mark didn't pay for his poor throws last year - Henne was a TO machine and paid dearly and Mark's errant throws weren't picked off all season let alone us

    The kicking game is however ours - woo -hoo!!

    Rex inherited a team that was 9-7 against one of the easiest scheds that has ever been assembled and he lost a HOF QB.

    We all know Miami had much more talent than 1-15.

    It's not even debateable who the better coach is. rex in 2 years as a HC has 2 title game trips and 4 road playoff wins, Sparano has never been part of a playoff win EVER whether as a HC or ***'t.


    4 of 5 is nice but there's just the one sweep in there preventing the series from being 3-3 the past 3 years instead of 4-2 Miami.

    One game is luck, heck I will give you two games. Four out of five? There is much more to it than just luck.
