Why is that funny? Are you really so oblivious to the fact that the Dolphins ARE DIVISION CHAMPIONS?!?!?
They won, deal with it; sore loser.
Dude, we don't care anymore. You had the same record and won on the 4th tie-breaker, in a year that we didn't have our NFL MVP quarterback. I think that pretty much describes your 'great' accomplishment.
We all were sad, let down, and upset when Brett Favre and the Jests gave you that game--after being ahead twice. It was a feeling that we're not used to lately, aside from 2002--the last time we didn't win the East.
That whole week pretty much sucked, no one's going to deny that. It is an obvious fact. But at the end of that week everything got better, as we all felt a sense of relief when Baltimore pounded you into the ground. Your big 'glorious' moment lasted all of one week, once again congratulations. Your team was the tie-breaker winner, ours was not. We have all accepted it, and moved on, as of the end of December--beginning of January.
The reason we are still laughing is because:
1)You people are so classless, you are STILL talking about it months later
2)NO ONE here cares--you didn't win a playoff game, neither did we. So what?
3)Your team sucked royally, and were pounded to the ground. But, still, you seem to be so proud of this fact (?)
4)Your whole "division champs" thing lasted less than a full week, as your fans had to deal with the let down of being excited and hopeful for the playoffs--then losing horribly the VERY next game. That would be like our fans being so incredibly happy about the '05 season, when we lost in Denver. No one would be bragging about it months later, as we all feel it was a letdown having gone to the playoffs and going nowhere. If you had at least won a game, or had you gone to the AFCCG, then we may feel threatened somewhat. You were THE joke of the whole playoff tournament. If we would've just lost to Baltimore like you, then I'm glad we didn't have to experience that pain.
5)It would be like Atlanta or Minnesota fans bragging in their forums how much they've "overtaken" the other teams by going to the playoffs and losing in one game. It wouldn't make sense. Their seasons lasted about 150 hours longer than the other teams.
6)The future of your team is Chad Henne. As a Buckeye fan too, that's good enough right there for a laugh, as they whipped him 4 years in a row.
7)Your so called squad failed to even keep up with the perennial losers of the East, Buffalo, in the off-season. The Jests even greatly improved ahead of you, if there's a team we're worried about--it's not you.
8)You're just funny. Give a loser team one playoff bid, and they think they won the Super Bowl 3 out of 4 years, and were the FIRST team ever to go 18-0. Long after Super Bowl 42, years and years later, we'll be remembered much more for having the only perfect regular season in a modern day format.(17 week season, 12 playoff teams, etc) We all knew that after week 17 when we went 16-0. Although the Super Bowl was a letdown, we still had the only perfect season to look back on. It wasn't as big of a let down as you other fans seem to think. Everyone has to have a winner, and a loser in a championship game. You only wish you had a team that went 18-0 at one point. As soon as that happened, we became THE highest pinnacle for an NFL team EVER. The best you had was 17 wins, but most of you pretend not to understand that. Plus the fact that it's in the free agency era, where there aren't any dynasties anymore, makes it that much crazier.
So go ahead, enjoy your going to the playoffs in '08. (oh yeah, it's already in the past, and you had one real week to celebrate) NO ONE CARES ANYMORE
