Nothing says"we didn't deserve to be here and we don't belong" like being blown out 24-zip in the last 31 minutes by the Indy starters who outscored you 45-27 before being yanked while ahead in a charity game that was meaningless to them because they decided keeping their starters playoff -healthy was more important than winning their 15th straight game.[/B][/B]

your last 7 trips to postseason you lost by an average of 26 points per game. 14 pts was the closest loss.

You certainly cannot be referring to the 08 divisional title MIami (goes together more organically with the fins than the jest) who took their division with 3 teams winning 9 or more games (1 more for the Patriots than they did the next season.. where still they were the only legitimate winning team in the division) despite a noodle armed QB with less than a .300 winning percentage vs top 10 scoring D's. One can only wonder how well the fins might have fared in the playoffs if Tannehill - or even Moore (the 4th most accurate long ball passer in the league in '11) were under center instead of Captain Dink & Dunk
The '08 phins and '09 Jets both got breaks and took advantage, Miami got more but let's put that aside. Once in postseason one proved they belonged, the other got humiliated at home- a dolphin playoff tradition!
