We play the Bungles on Sunday, but with Flacco hurt, we don't have much of a chance.

 

Cincy doesn't really have anything to play for.

 

And Rex might be playing for his job.  And the Jets pass rush is just as good as Buffalo's and Geno is starting to look competent.

Not true, re:  Cincy...they have a shot at the #2 seed and a week off.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Cincy is playing for the 2 seed and a first-round bye. And the NE-Buffalo game was moved to 4 so they have to play their starters the whole game.

Yeah, I stand correct on the Cincy issue.  Whatever happens, I'm hoping for someone other than New England to have that 3 seed.  If the Phins somehow manage to get in, the Patriots will probably destroy the Phins in a first round match-up.

New England isn't losing to Buffalo at home, no chance of that happening. But Cincy doesn't know that for sure, so they'll play to win, which is good for us. But everyone knows the Pats aren't losing to Buffalo. Yesterday was Buffalo's Super Bowl, they won't even show up for this game.

Geno is starting to look competent. 

 

Geno looked awesome yesterday……… in 67° weather. :P  If there’s one thing analysts have noticed in Smith’s game, it’s that he doesn’t perform well in windy\cold elements. This is the #1 reason I believe the Dolphins are going to see a much different game out of Geno on Sunday, than the first time we played eachother. The second biggest reason I believe the outcome will be different is HOW the Jets are using Smith. He’s rushed for 142 yrds over the last 3 games.. and as a result, has 6 TD’s to show for it. Throughout the entire year, the Jets were trying to mold Geno into a pocket passer. --the same as what they tried with Sanchez. (remember Joe Girardi even being brought in, dissuading Sanchez from running with the ball) Yet, something happened after the first Miami game with the Jets, and MM and the coordinators decided to utilize Geno’s legs almost as much as his arm. The results have been fantastic over the past 3 weeks, as the Jets are now suddenly averaging 27 points per game. I wish they would’ve went to this train-of-thought sooner. If Geno’s game is going to be running for 50 yrds a week, that’s an 800 yrd season with just his legs. Under those perimeters (and some more talented players being brought in) maybe, just maybe, the Jets can win with Geno Smith.

I fully expect the Jets to go balls to the wall to knock us out. We better be ready. No excuses.

And while his job is safe at least for next year, it will tell you a lot about Philbin if the Phins lay another egg in a must win game against a non-playoff team.

How is this an issue with an NFL team. I mentioned this months ago after a good friend was telling me he charted every play.

 

 

Ryan Tannehill was sacked seven times Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Aside from facing the NFL's leading sack unit, left tackle Bryant McKinnie thinks he knows why the Bills were able to get great pressure.

"They got in a rhythm with our cadence," he said, per the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

McKinnie, who was brought in midway through the season, didn't previously mention the trouble to coaches because he didn't believe another team had caught on.

"I always used to wonder like, 'Dang, I wonder why nobody's actually ever keyed in,'" he said. "If you watch film, I could probably [figure] it out a little bit after a while.

"But the change I suggested would definitely work. It'll keep them honest now. I think they were taking a little risk here and there and it just so happened it was being accurate."

 

This isn't the first time the Dolphins' snap count has been in question in the past two seasons. The Houston TexansJ.J. Watt last year discussed picking up the Dolphins' snap count from watching HBO's "Hard Knocks." Earlier this season, left guard Nate Garner said he thought the Tampa Bay Buccaneers knew the calls. And many Dolphins fans claim they can guess the snap as well.

Yeah, I don't get it either. Couldn't tell you whether it's too late to change it at this point. Who knows, McKinney just saying they should change the snap count might be enough to keep other teams honest.

I'm only following online since I can't watch the game. But it looks like another crap effort.

fvck Tanehill. Just admit it fanboys, he blows.

fvck Philbin. Maybe make the team just a tad less predictable.

fvck Ireland and fvck Ross.

I saw a tweet from one of the Phins beat writers about it, but it sounds even worse.

It sure looks like another one of Tannehill's problems is that he absolutely does not care.

One more year of this clown.
