    I expect most to want the Dolphins to win because most here simply hate the Jets and loudmouth Ryan but I can see some here wanting the Jets to win to all but eliminate Miami from retaining division title hopes with a 5th loss and would literally have to run the table to have a minor shot.

    So who is it to root for? - no ties or you want the stadium to blow up count as an answer please,so lets get that out of the way :cool:

    Dolphins.

    We still have the opportunity to sweep the Dolphins, unlike the Jets.

    I really can't decide. Can you root for a tie? I'm leaning toward the Phins just a bit, if only because it's so fun to see the Jets lose. I just think without Jenkins the Jets are going to have even more trouble with the Wildcat.

    Doofins. But only because the Jets are the closest to us in the divisional standings. Add to that the fact that I believe we'll come out of our bye week and beat them.

    Jets are closer in the standings, plus as of this moment they own the tiebreaker with the Pats. Therefore, root for the Jets to lose.

    Since both can not lose, a tie.:D

    Seriously though, the Dolphins have gone through the tough part of their season. With games like Bucs, Bills(x2), Titans, Panthers, coming they can come back. I'd like to see the Dolphin's lose hope. I expect Ryan/Sanchise to implode. The Dolphins Parcells/whomever scares me.

    On the other hand, I can't actually root or the S-T-E-J.

    Tell me the score afterward and one loses and makes me happy.

    Dolphins.

    I hate the Dolphins, but I hate the Jets about 3x as much. I also think it's more beneficial to the Pats for the Jets to lose.

    I'm praying for a complete and utter annihilation of the Jets.

    Miami should have no problem "embarrassing" them again....

    JETS and before I get crucified for that LOL I have to say this is ONLY because I have some of them on my Fantasy Football team and naturally I hope the people I have do well since I am in first place in my league of 8 guys and 2 girls. I have to beat those boys and show them girls know how to play too LOL.

    If you ask me who I think will win, my answer is also the Jets just because the Dolphins will be too busy trying to keep their uniforms clean to play football (laces out lol).:deadhorse:

    I still think the Dolphins may be the bigger threat for the division, but I will be rooting for them. I just want to see Rex Ryan look like an idiot for all his talking.

    Agreed on the count that Miami should beat them again. This Jets team is reeling on both offense and defense. I don't see Sanchez having as good of a game against them as he did the last time (when they still lost). Plus, Miami had no problem running on them last game WITH Kris Jenkins actually in the game. Now Jenkins' fat ass is on IR. Miami should once again gash them. Hopefully we get to see Ronnie Brown run over Calvin Pace a couple of times.

    You actually went through with it? I tried the first (maybe) 20 seconds or so of the game before I decided that I couldn't physically bring myself to root for that puke enducing team. So I shut my TV off and came back to it later, only to find out that the Jets lost anyway.

    That doesn't give you an excuse to root for the Jets, missy.

    When it comes to any Jets-Dolphins games, just remember this: you're not rooting for one of them to win.

    You're strictly rooting for the other team to lose.

    i know my vote here means nothing, but im in the majority here. I hope Miami wins it. My team has already beat miami, so we have no need to worry about them (unless they make playoffs).. and we play the J-E-T-S later this year, by then, im hoping Sanchez has lost all confidence and the defense is banged up :) .. so, GO PHINS! :D

    What's most important is that it go into overtime, be incredibly physical and exhausting, and be played in an ice storm with temperatures below zero.

    I won't wish injuries on anyone but a rash of severe bruising, cramping, and pneumonia sounds good.

    I guess if people are dumb enough to allow it to be yes but it's just a FUN thing I do with my friends. It's innocent competition but it doesn't make me any less of a Pats fan because of it.

    Yeah, I agree. I cheer for the Pats regardless of how it affects my fantasy team. Set my lineup and then go watch the game. I won't check my score at all until after the Pats game and post-game shows are over.


    Unfortunately there are a lot of casual fans out there that are cheering for teams, or more specifically players, strictly because of fantasy football, and seem to have forgotten who their favorite team is that they root for. I'm sure a lot of people have a story about some clown jumping up and down because a player on his FF team just scored, while everyone around him is bumming because the Pats (or local team) just lost on the same play.

    Let me just say this: Drew Brees is the QB on my fantasy team, but I still wanted the Phins to beat them, because I believe the AFCE is one of the best divisions in football.

    I want the Fish to beat the Jets because I hate the Jets more now than I did last year (not sure if that's even healthy). Patriots have to make their own destiny anyway, might as well root for the utter ruin of the New Jersey Jest*

    I hope you leave a bar and get into a really hard fought fist fight that you barely win with lots of injuries. Stay classy, dude.

    Agreed. That said, if Ricky and Ronnie develop a real nasty hangnail or two for a couple weeks from running through the Jets, I'd be cool with it.

    The Jets are closer now at 4-3 and the loss will make them 1-3 in the division...If Miami wins, they will be 3-4...more on the way to respectability..BUT 3-0 in the division... I tend to think I really want the Fins to win...but I think eitehr way they will have momentum into the Pats game. If they win they can get to 500 with a win over the Pats and be 4-0 in the division...they need that if they are going to make a run at it...If they lose, they will be 2-5 and more desperatley need a win.
    I think having the Jets lose will help...but beware the Fins. I agreea long physical overtime game would be good..but it doesn't matter. CoachB will be all prepared for the Fins trickery..

    The division is what matters.

    We want Miami to lose to the Jets and then to us. That way they are 2-2 in the division, along with Jets, and we'll lead it 3-1.

    Some people on here have high hopes that the Patriots go 13-3 or 12-4, but there is absolutely no telling how many more brainfarts of a game we will have. We need to keep the big picture in mind; Brady is going to have a few more bad or meidocre games before he becomes the Brady we know.
