    How is it cheating? It's about as much cheating as counting cards in Blackjack.

    That's why I was asking to see what was the big deal:confused: I thought it was common for teams to use whatever they can get their hands on to beat the opposing team.

    Concur. Heck, if the Pats did this, we'd call them geniuses.

    If it's true:

    1-It makes me feel much better about the corn hole job they did on us yesterday.

    2-If they did indeed do that then it's the Pats fault. Should have kept it from happening. You live you learn.

    If this were true, I am relieved of some of the anxiety from the fulllness of the defeat. Reading the offensive plays would go a long way to explaining their success.

    Not really. McDaniels made NO adjustments even though it was clear after a few minutes that Brady was getting killed. I've noticed this not just for the Miami game but in general over the past 2 years: no intelligent adjustments mid-game.

    It was said on WEEI that the Dolphins claimed to be getting even with us for supposedly stealing their defensive signals last year.

    Also, Zach Thomas supposedly said the Dolphins should have tried a drop kick while they were at it.

    shame on us for telegraphing plays if that's what went down.... good work on the Fins part as well if they figured it out - I'd say Saban and BB both recognize the need to play by the rules - and if its not illegal, its in bounds to watch and learn the tendencies of another team's playcalling

    beyond their D they generally played mistake free ball

    This wasn't a game where we just simply beat ourselves - the Fins won this one with quality play on their part as well

    I just wish we had given them more of a game than we did

    Maybe they can try a drop kick in a few weeks in their first playoff game in years . . . oh . . . that's right . . .

    Here's the link to the article:

    http://www.palmbeachpost.com/dolphins/content/sports/epaper/2006/12/11/finsgamer_1211.html

    This will make yet another time a team has either:

    a) figured out offensive calls and exploited them

    b) figured out the cadence and exploited it

    I remember during one show, I think it was "Inside the NFL", where a team openly admitted they figured out the calls and the cadence and were coming over the ball as it was being snapped. It's amazing that they don't figure out that something's up during the game and adjust at that point. :confused:

    F' Thomas...he was standing over Ben Watson pointing at him and laughing long after the play was over.....I can understand the initial adrenaline going on....but after a few mins should show at least a little concern there...I noticed Taylor showed a little more class.....

    We're unprepared offensively. Read that any way you want, but we are not on top of things.

    I think they are running too many formations and shifts for the new personnel that are not being used on a consistent basis.

    Caldwell's OK, but they end up throwing to Faulk and Brown every play.

    They need to simplify the offense instead of running from totally different sets every play. I think they know what the play is as soon as they see 5 wide, 3 TE, 2 backs.

    It's ridiculous.

    Run different options with 1 back and 2 TEs for awhile. Keep the pass rin option alive.
