    Good! It will be nice to know in advance if the Pats will have a bye to nab, and deny Houston any potential scoreboard-glancing...

    a "SHOWDOWN!"...WTF is this crap....did a trained chimp write this idiocy up?

    yeah.."Showdown At The Oh No! Corral" starring Tom Brady as Wyatt Burp and the Dead Clantons playing the Phins theme on rusty juice harps...

    IF, and it is a big if, Indy comes to play and actually takes down the Texans, the NFL just wrung out some bonus rating points. The Miami V patriots game goes from almost no ramifications to big ramifications. In that regards it is understandable for them to flex it to a late game (assuming that is why they did it).

    While us Patriot fans want a bye, the NFL wants it badly too! Denver and Patriots as #1 and #2 makes the Denver v Patriots AFCCG more likely to happen. And a Denver/Manning V Patriots/Brady prime time AFCCG is going to be one of the most watched TV showings all year. There aren't too many times remaining that the NFL/networks can hype this kind of match up with this big of drawing power. IMHO there won't be a selling point like this for the NFL for many years to come. Maybe RG needs to make some calls to the officiating crews and remind them of this :D

    Interesting trivia on this year's Miami Dolphins team.

    The Miami Dolphins could be the only team in the NFL to reach this distinguishing statistical accomplishment. - South Florida Sun-Sentinel.com


    The article then goes on to debate whether those are just numbers, compares them to other teams with similar numbers, and asks whether that is evidence that the team should be a playoff contender.

    This is going to be the Ryan Mallett Coming Out Party. Houston will win. Play Brady for a quarter. Get him his td pass. Rest; Vollmer, Mankins, AHern and get the younger guys in there. Cannon vs Wake is a nice test. Donald Thomas gets some rust off. I'd like to play Gronk a little. See how he's doing.

    I'd sit Wilfork, Spikes, Ninko, Talib and Dennard on defense. Get Tavon Wilson, Justin Francis, M. Cole and Arrington more reps.
