    Dolphins are 4 to 4.5 point favorites over Buffalo, and Pittsburgh is 4.5 to 5 point favorite over Cincinnati.

    I haven't seen money lines yet but the odds of both favorites winning in that price range is roughly Even money. In a 2 team money line parlay, if both teams are -240 (240 to win 100), the multiplier works out to almost exactly an Even money payout. At -240 you receive .4166 cents on the dollar. The example is 100 x 1.4166 x 1.4166 = 200.6755. Like I said, almost exactly Even money. Miami will probably be slightly lower than -240 money line favorite and Pittsburgh perhaps slightly higher. It will round out close enough to Even money that 50/50 odds of those two games falling in Miami's favor is a good way to look at it.

    Could very well happen. I bet Belichick would rather play us in the playoffs then the Steelers or Bengals.

    Maybe they rather play us in a vacuum but not after they just "let" us beat them the week before. Didn't the Chargers make that mistake against the Jets a few years ago?

    The Fins getting to the playoffs means A. They beat New England in New England . . . and B. More than likely a rematch the following week in New England. New England isn't laying down as they want a bye . . . and the Fins have a defense that can keep them in games . . . they just need some creativity on offense. Hell I'd take a playoff spot over a better draft pick . . . oh hellz yea.

    Yes and yes. I was pissed that we didn't take Nicks.

    Yep, if we just found a way to win that first game against the Jets, The Fins would only need Cincy to drop a game against either the Steelers or Ravens in the final 2 weeks and they would control their own destiny. Give us the Jets and Cards (the OT losses) we would be in the driver's seat.

    Playoffs or no playoffs, if this team finishes out with three wins, including a week 17 victory at Foxboro, I will feel a lot better about them going into the offseason than I will if we **** the bed and get blown out 52-13 to end the season.

    Of course, I'm not even sure this group can avoid being swept by Buffalo, so, uh, baby steps, I guess.
    I'm here to tell the truth about top secret Air Force project BAR STOOL. Gamma ray radiation from the particle accelerator under Joe Robbie Stadium is real! Get out while you can! This bad football team is just a front for something far more sinister!

    I can see it now.... Everything that needs to happen will happen. The Dolphins will be right on the doorstep of the playoffs and the Pats kick us right in the nuts.
