    If Manning(hypothetical) can play like he could be the injury, we would be better than the Pats IMHO.
    The Pats have no outside receivers and their pass defense cannot stop Brandon Marshall.
    We did a good job slowing them down in the 2nd game up in Foxboro. Getting pressure on Brady is the key to beating the Patriots. When he is roughed up, his game is not as precise. The Giants played him perfectly.
    We can play them the same way IMHO. If we go with a DE or OLB in the draft for better pass rush, it is because we can never have enough pressure.
    The NFL network loves the Patriots.

    I love my fins as much as the next homer, but we are nowhere near the pats, even with Manning.

    That's bull. Outside of their thigh ends and QB, we are the better team.

    Holy crap, give me some of that kool aid you're drinking. We were 0-7 at one point last year and haven't had a winning record in 3 years. As long as TB is with the Pats with Welker and their two tight ends, the fins will have to prove they can beat the pats heads up twice in a season before any of us can say we have the better team.

    if thats all they had better than us we should be better than them. A team is the sum of its parts not this position is beter than this position and NE is a much better team.

    the patriots have the better oline, NT and slot receiver. The Dolphins have better DEs and one better OLB than the patriots. Other than that the remaining units are evenly matched in my opinion.

    Your post suggests that the Pats are a historically elite team. That is a ridiculous assumption because both the Pats and Giants were seriously flawed teams that wouldn't even rank among the top 30 SB teams.
    The Pats (and Giants) were somewhat fortunate to get to the SB to begin with. I still feel that the Packers (when healthy) and the Saints (and possibly 49'ers) are better than both of them and would beat them 7 out of 10 times.
    Make no mistake, the Pats roster has as many holes (if not more) than the Phins. A good QB and HC can cover up a lot of deficiencies.
    The Phins lost 38-24 and 27-24 to the Pats. Are you suggesting that a healthy Manning and improved coaching wouldn't have closed that gap?

    5 Superbowl appearances in 11 years? I think it's a pretty damn accurate assumption. Not saying the talent gap is necessarily huge, but c'mon...
