    *Sigh*.

    God damn the rat birds are horrible, we single handily sucked the entire life out of a NFL franchise 2 weeks ago.

    If we're trying to look at positives here, only one I could think of...

    It makes our SOS at the end of the year look much better. When people look back at the '72 Dolphins, there's is always brought up. Taking off two games against a winless team increases it. Plus "Well two of your games came against a winless team!" will never be brought up.

    Yeah kind of stretching, but I had to find something good to take out of it.

    If they keep celebrating like they did at the end of the game, they may not sober up until Wed.....

    I was elated when they won because it increases the probability that they will be a bit flat when they play us next week.

    Here's hoping that we cruise to an easy win next week that also enables Brady and Moss to achieve/extend records.

    Here's also hoping that the weather next Sunday is not as bad as today! :eek:

    Again who cares? So they won one. With any luck maybe the NFL will do the right thing :)rofl:) and move next week's game back to 1 PM.

    That's the best thing about this. The media is robbed of it's 14-0 vs. 0-14 storyline.

    Of course, they'll now play up the "Can the emotion of the win carry the Dolphins to victory over NE to protect the legacy of the '72 Fins?" blah, blah, blah.....

    Living about 20 minutes away from 'lphins Stadium you would think they won the SB.

    I still think we'll see a strong game from the Fins next week. Big motivation to knock the Pats off.

    "I was elated when they won because it increases the probability that they will be a bit flat when they play us next week."

    Who gives a f**k???? Have you heard the story about the 72 doofins? This years doofin team would give them a run for their money.........so much of their "perfect season" was a joke........weird calls by referees to wrap up victories......most of the rest of the teams they played were LAUGHING STOCKS that year...........To win 14 games in TODAY'S NFL.....is 10 times harder than what the 72 doofins did!!!!

    actually a 4:15 start next week hurts the doofins much more than it hurts the Pats!!!!!!!!!! F' The doofins!

    I'd much rather this year's story in historical terms be solely about the Patriots going 19-0 rather than them competing with an 0-16 Phins storyline.
