    Root for Miami to win so we can order the hat and t-shirts after next weeks game against Buffalo..If we beat Buffalo (and we should-easily) it will wrap up the division in week 10 and I would enjoy ordering and wearing the gear well ahead of the other teams to show off to the fans of the other pretenders

    GO MIAMI and win your first game!

    Its tempting to root for Miami,but I also like the idea of a perfect season. A nice 0-16 for the team and especialy the fans. One or two in particular. :rolleyes:

    I like the bills, I think they are heading in the right direction, and I'd like to see them win, also...nothing will be more hilarious than the dolphins ending up with a 0-16 records...oh the irony:rolleyes:

    I despise Miami more than any other NFL team (including the Jets) but I am putting my hate aside to hope they win thier first game.

    Its sort of like going to your in-laws for Thanksgiving,You don't want to be there cause theres no love loss,but you need to.

    I must root for the Dolphins because it may impact our draft status. If they can squeak out a few wins, perhaps SF's pick will be ahead of Miami's....

    That's the way I see it.

    I'd love to look at the 2007 standings a few years from now and see in first pats 16-0 and miami 0-16.
    Can't root for Miami, we're gonna clinch the division soon enough.
    I'm pretty sure you'd rather order super bowl xlii hats and shirts later on

    I will not root for Miami.

    I just hope the Bills mess up enough.

    Yep, plenty of reasons to root for Miami. Here's another one: maybe if they put together a few late wins they'll keep their current coaching and personnel staff. :)

    I will root against the Dolphins because I can wait another week to clinch the division. The AFC East isn't a contest at this point. But yeah, if Miami does win, the consolation prize isn't so bad: a better chance at possibly moving ahead of Miami at the top of the draft order, and closer to a division clinch. Plus you want to create that sense of doubt...if Buffalo can't beat the worst team in the NFL, they've got no shot against the best team.

    Naah. NO way. I could never root for the Dolphins to win. Whoever wins, I don't care either way as neither of them are a threat to the Patriots. Even if the Bills win this they won't be sniffing the division title.

    If I was going to root for Miami to start winning, it would be because I want them to pass the 49ers. Even that doesn't outweigh the spiteful joy that I get out of seeing the Dolphins and their fans suffer, though, so I'm rooting for 0-16.

    And here's another reason to root for a Bills' loss:

    A loss would demoralize a Bills team who would otherwise be sky-high for a prime-time, nationally televised game, at home, against a team who spanked them, but not without some first-half struggles, earlier in the season.

    Yeah I won't root for Miami. If Shula's comments this week weren't enough...

    I'm with Jim Rome on this one. I think Miami "running the table in reverse" would actually be better than their undefeated season and pretty much un-do it. And I'd love to see them do that in the same season the Patriots go 0-19.

    LET'S GO BUFFALO! (I can't believe I've just cheered that.)

    I forgot about Old Man Shula. Isn't he still part of the organazation as a figue head consultant or something. Another reason to root for the Bills.

    If the Pats go 16-0 and the Fins go 0-16, I think that team from 72 will be drinking razor blades, LOL.

    I will be rooting for the Dolphins to all have career-ending injuries while leaving the locker room. And for the cops to find child porn and 50 lbs. of cocaine in their lockers.

    NO, miami needs to lose all their games. I got $20 on Miami to go winless ( I guess a tie will work) @ 9 to 1 and I also have the Pats @ 5 to 1 to go undefeated. (i guess a tie would work here too.)

    I'm rooting for Buffalo primarily because I like how the Bills have shown character this year despite significant injuries.

    I also think that if Miami went 0-16 while the Patriots go 16-0, that would be sweet after Don Shula's comments.

    On the other hand, I'd be happy if Miami won more games than the 49ers. I just don't think it will happen.

    Damn straight. For a couple of obvious reasons, I'm rooting for the Jets and Miami to finish with better records than the 49ers.

    And I'd like the Raiders and Falcons to be inbetween those two groups.

    I'm not in that much of a rush for the Pats to clinch. We all know they are going to, maybe just a week later. What a story that would be too, to see the Bills who most people didn't have to win 3 games, might actually win 4 in a row.

    Also, root for SF to lose of course.

    Root for Cincy's divisional opponents to lose so SF's strength of schedule stays weak.

    Root for Cleveland to win, though, to keep Dallas from drafting too high.

    I'll take Buffalo to win today so they won't be as hungry next week.

    I hope JP Losman starts against us next week. He's possibly the worst quarterback in all of football, including Arena League and powder puff football.

    Did Lynch leave the game in the 4th quarter with a leg injury? Cause if that's true that Pats might be accused next week of running up the score by the end of the first quarter.
