Sparano was always masterful with his clock managament - so glad he isn't around anymore.
Hope is not a strategy.
Jets are -1.6 points per game differential which is 19th.
Dolphins are .5 ppt differential which is 16th.
Dolphins are getting between 1 - 2.5 points depending on the sports book.
No matter what stat or logic (sometimes twisted) that you use, this will be a very close game. Jets have the home field but Miami has the extra week to prepare.
I'd be hiding under a chair if I ever have to compare my 4-year starter against a rookie and don't come up with numbers which clearly support my theory of my 4-year starter is clearly better. But all he can come up with is a TD here and there and an INT here and there.
Now let's run a comparison of Mark's first 6 games:
Sanchez - Completions: 85; Attempts: 163; Comp%: 52%; Yards: 1,035 TD: 5; INTs: 10; QBR: 56
Tannehill - Completions: 118; Attempts: 198; Comp%: 59%; Yards: 1,454 TD: 4; INTs: 6; QBR: 76

Do I even need to mention why that was a stupid call with 2:01 left on the clock ? rofl
RIGHT then and there I KNEW the Jets were going to lose that game. I just laughed at that call. Seen it happen so often here with that clown and his stupid decisions. KNEW the jets would lose at that very moment when that play was called at that time. What an atrocious call when their WR's were getting wide open, you have the momentum, and running the ball doesn't do anything at all (they weren't running it well in the 4th) with 2:01 left to go as it doesn't take any time off the clock with the 2-minute warning saving the Patriots a time out.
What a bumbling stumbling stupid fool that clown is. I used to say Sparano is a high school coach way over his head in the NFL. He's worse, I was giving sparano way too much credit calling him a high school coach and that's where he belonged. I knew high school coaches with far more common sense than meathead
Sparano is dumber than dirt with absolutely no "feel" for the game whatsoever.
It's funny, but even with his 3 ints vs Houston, stripping out those 6 minutes, Tannehill outplayed Sanchez 7-6 with no Fins taking Cushing (one of those ints) out on a questionably dirty play.
When NE and SF each score about 50 pts on Buffalo soon after Sanchez's first game, coupled with the shutout by SF in the Meadowlands, it's fair if you're gonna count a raw rookie's first game against a formidable D in their house as part of his record, it's equally fair to eliminate The Taco's first game vs a Wanny terrible D especially when it was born out by two other teams -one of which shut out Sanchez at home.
Chad Henne might be available to unseat Sancheez...
There you go right there. The Dolphins now caught all the breaks vs. the Jets. Of course. The refs love Miami and did all they could to have them win. Missing a game-winning kick IS a reason a team loses is it not? Look at Arizona vs. Buffalo. Look at Dallas vs. Baltimore. Look at numerous other games that end that way.you have me confused w/ vaark. please find my excuses and post them. this is really funny coming from the guy blaming a missed 48 yd FG on wet grass while ignoring all the breaks you got to get to that point.
Well since that's what the Jets did of course you feel that way. Only they weren't able to completely do that so you don't actually really know what it's like.it's tougher to go into the toughest building in the league for an opposing team and win than to win on a neutral site.

And these are good stats for a QB whose been in the league for 4 years now? Holy **** you'll try and find ANYTHING to belittle the Dolphins.You also know your QB has 6 INts in 6 games, ours 7 in 7 games(except our QB has 2 more Tds than INTs, yours has 2 less)
Sanchez leads his team back heroically after playing like **** to put them in a hole only to throw a bone headed interception in the Houston and NE games..and then fumble in OT, but that's impressive. Tannehill leads his team late into the game in the lead, entrusting it to the defense and/or his kicker to do what professionals are paid to do, yet he hasn't done enough.
If that's not homerism, I don't know what is. Please realize TGG, far and away the most homeristic of the 3 jets forums considers our version of Baghdad Bob too much of a blind, unobjective homer. That- and the dysfunctional obsessive/compulsive pathology to have the last word on any post throughout FH that reflects the jets in a mostly realistic light, for perspective-sake, are really all you need to know.
