    Please post your comments, knee jerk reactions, and insightful observations prior to and during today's game vs the dolphins, on this thread.

    I look for this to be a tough game. The Dolphins have had some very close games with good teams this year. They still believe that they are in the hunt for a playoff spot.

    Let's hope for a good game with no injuries.

    Looks like a warm wind blowing in Miami today, and not just from Dierdorf:

    All over the news this morning the media is hyping the fact that Tom Brady is 0-3 at Miami in December.

    They seem to put more stock into that than the fact that the Patriots have won their last four against the Dolphins.

    Per Reiss:

    Julian Edelman, who didn't finish the Thanksgiving night game against the Jets due to a concussion, on the field now catching passes.

    Seems like Fells, Shiancoe, and Hoomanawanui are all tied for third on the depth chart. Just depends on the game plan.

    Let's just get through this trap game with a win and no serious injuries then start getting ready for Houston next week.

    Is it me, or does it seem like opponents' inactive lists are always a bunch of guys we never heard of, while the Pats are always guys like Gronkowski, Mankins, Hernandez ...

    Yes. Also starting free safety Drew Bledsoe has been diagnosed with an exploding ballsack and will be out. :D

    Well one reason for that is that the Pats are keeping guys on the roster that can play in the Super Bowl, while most other teams are IRing guys if they won't be ready by week 17.

    +1.

    I think him and Ridley can become a long term great 1/2 combo and Vereen can provide a Sproles type option in the passing game that the Patriots haven't really had even with Faulk.

    Pats have good depth, so even when a sub is out everyone recognizes the guy's name :eek:

    I don't think that this is a trap game for a number of reasons:
    T
    • he Pats can clinch the division today and get a playoff berth
    • It is a division game
    • The Dolphins are a decent team. They aren't horrible. They still have a decent shot at a Wild Card
    • The Pats has historically had problems in Miami and they know it.
    • The Pats had a week and a half to prepare for it.

    Maybe if it was a team out of the division and not a hat and T-shirt game, I would agree. I think the Pats come into this game ready to play and not looking past the Dolphins because of the reasons above.

    But hey, I have been wrong before.

    What you're arguing is whether or not the Pats will lose. I don't think they will either. But this is, nevertheless, a trap game. This is a game sandwiched between a game against a bitter rival on national television and a game against the #1 seed in the AFC on national television. That's the basic definition of a trap game. The Pats seem to be focused though so I expect them to come away with the W.

    Anyways, enjoy the game guys and gals. My grandma passed last week and I'm going to be at her wake today so I won't get to see the game until I watch the DVR recording. Go Pats!

    Sorry for your loss, Brother. I just buried my 31 yr old niece yesterday. I feel your pain. I'm using this game as a deflection. God bless
