    Not a chance. The Dolphins are the greatest team ever assembled, according to the press and Fish fans.

    Welcome to the board.

    The answer to yoiur questions is that they will be a contender again and that is all any fan should expect at this time of the year.

    I hope that you and Mike the Brit don't start fighting on the board. :D

    Welcome, gervboy! We have a few Irish posters -- not to mention a Glaswegian Celt and lots of Guinness fans.

    Don't pay any attention to my friend, NUT: there are plenty of better people to pick a fight with, if you feel the need! (BTW, if you're in the north, I assume you're watching Channel 5 like me.)

    Heh Mike the Brit, don't forget to turn him on to the DVDs, we need all the armchair analysts we can get!

    A hearty 'Welcome' to another European convert - G-cat can play with his sticky wicket all he wants, this is the game for mental gymnastics!

    Failte, Gervboy.
    My mom is from Galway, near Clare; my dad from Cork, just south of the city.
    Keep spreading the good word of the Patriots.
    First, New England's team.
    Then, America's team.
    Next, Ireland's team.
    After all, what child of Eire would not admire a team named after those who fought (and defeated) the British?

    I'm in Oxford (well, for another three weeks before re-locating to New England!)

    Mike Carlson is the man! Did you know that he was at college with Bill Belichick? They overlapped on the football and lacrosse teams. Best Mike Carlson on Bill Belichick quote: "He's the best coach in football and the worst dressed. And that's not a coincidence."

    I'm not much of a fan of Football myself. I don't spend much time on here as you know. :D

    I do agree that it an incredibly challenging game, intellectually. I gave up trying to analyse the game after seeing your analyses. Much as I hate to admit, I really am not worthy.

    As to your worth, we'll leave that to Miss G-cat to sort out at the market place - however, you do bring a certain entertainment value to the forum for those of us with low humor issues. :p

    Ya, but I heard you folks weren't claiming Luton town FC, so we had to make him an honorary Texan?

    Y'all know that our Patriots club gathers at an Irish Pub, don't you?

    If any of you make it over here in 2007 for the Ravens game - look us up, we have a tremendous following of Pats fans in the DC area.
