    I'll bet anybody $100 right now that they'll lose at least one of those games and that's all we need to get back in control of our own destiny. The Colts have a real good shot at knocking them off tomorrow, I think Luck is already as good as Brady and he may very well break his own passing record.

    im not saying the patriots do not have a shot at losing any of those 3 games, heck maybe theyll lose all 3, but they still will be favorites to win all of those games, and even with a poor defense, they still have a very dangerous offense that can put up 30 plus pts just like that.

    our offense couldn't do **** vs the titans, colts, and bills defense which are prob worse than the pats, how are we going to put up 30 plus pts vs the pats, which is what will most likely be needed to win?

    i hope we do and i am remaining hopeful, but its very hard to fathom us doing that right now. i hope i am wrong and the pats get killed tomm, and we are able to shut them down and beat them when we play, but its still going to be a very tough task

    I don't think our offense is as bad as it has looked the past 2 games, we were out-coached as much as anything and just had poor game plans. With a better game plan and if we can get Gaffney back and get the rookies Mathews and Miller more involved we can put up some points.

    Getting some early momentum is huge in the Miami heat, a couple of long sustained drives by us and an early 3 and out for them levels the playing field big time. If the opposite happens then we'll get a repeat of the Tennessee game

    Me neither man. This team can turn it around. 3W streak than all of the sudden 3L streak. It can turn around just as fast. Philbin isn't an idiot. I am sure he is seeing who to let go this offseason.

    Tennesee's defense is a joke and miami almost got shut out at home.

    The colts defense is a joke and miami got throttled in the 2nd half

    The bills defense is a total joke and miami could barely get a TD against them. The Bills were on pace for the worst run defense in 70 years before playing miami.


    The real joke here that should make you laugh is the Dolphins offense.

    Luck is already as good as Brady, the future HOF-er and three time SB champ. You do realize he's thrown only one more TD than INT right? And his rating is 79.1?

    He's doing great for a rookie but in no way is he already on the level of Tom ****ing Brady.

    The Dolphins just played two of the worst defenses in the league and scored 17 total points against them. What in the **** makes anyone think they would be able to stick with NE?

    Guarantee Our offense is worse than NE's defense. Besides we will need to score 30+ to beat them if our defense has a good day. LMFAO at the Dolphins scoring 30 plus with non non offensive TD's or short fields.

    What funny is if our defense gives up a lot of yards but foces NE to settle for lots of field goals this place will be destroying the defense and giving the offesne a free pass.

    Folks, the Fins are not going to win possibly until the Jacksonville game. Look to see RT getting back on track as a "goal" for the next few weeks. It will be tough vs. Seattle, however. New England leads the AFC in takeaways and SF is one of the best defenses in general. Long haul for Tannehill and Joe.

    Face it. NE is beatable. They almost lost to both the Jests and the Bills. NE's defense is a joke. We will have an opportunity to beat them.

    If this team can get it together and start playing well again, it isnt quite over. I know this, if we win the next 2 games, we will be 6-6 and NE will be 8-4 at best. You guys will be talking about the possibilities of winning the division.

    Now, obviously to win the divison we will have to go 5-1 over these last 6 games. While that seems impossible the way we have played the last 2 games, just try and realize that if our OL pulls its head out of its ass and Tannehill steps it up a bit, it is certaily possible to pull off.

    The Jags and Bills are terrible. We play them at home. Seattle is not the same team on the road that they are at home. If we get back to playing the way we were a few weeks ago, we could win that game. Ive already stated how NE is beatable. And yea, the 9ers are tough, but they just tied in SF against a team we beat. So its not impossible.

    Look, if we can pull off 9-7, considering we will likely beat NE twice in that process, that means they would only have to lose 2 other games of their other 5 remaining in order to fall to 9-7 themselves. This is our only path. 9-7 will not get us a WC, because again, not only would going 9-7 mean sweeping NE, they would have to win 10 for that to throw us in the WC mix and its likely 9 wins wont get a WC. So winning the division is are only possible way in.

    Face it, the AFC east is WEAK. Its still possible. If we come home and beat Seattle, that can change the momentum. Beating NE the next week I promise would have all of you talking about how its possible we are 8-7 and playing a 9-6 NE team in week 17 for the division. 2 games in a row to get us back in it. Lets do this ****!

    Hell, NE could easily lose to Indy this week. Who else is left on their schedule? I can promise there isnt a game that should be considered a gimmie for them. They lost at home to Arizona. They play almost every game close because their defense is so bad. We can beat them. Its just a matter of guys getting it together and playing well.

    Get the run game going and get Tannehill back on track and this is not over. Laugh all you want. Go ahead. Im not guaranteeing anything. Im not even saying its likely. I know it isnt. Im just saying it isnt over. If we lose next week you can close it down. But, until we lose one of the next 2 games, Im not throwing in the towel.
    Get real!



    jk... I guess anything is possible

    I can see all the articles in the paper and in the newspaper next week about how a small, third round pick out-performed our guy. It will mean nothing, but good print and arguments for people, but it will be there nonetheless.
