    Since it's Thursday evening and 95% of the discussion is either still looking backwards to the previous game, or looking five week forwards to playoff scenarios, I fgure it is about time to start talk about the game that will be over and done with in less than 72 hours.

    With that in mind, a few links from behind enemy territory.

    Looks like they have some familiar topics, such as the offensive coordinator and head coach being questioned for the play calling, doubts on the offensive line due to an injury, second guessing a draft pick(s), concluding the season is over, etc. Lone bright spot seems to be that Ted Ginn was named special teams player of the month

    I understand that dolphins are illegal to hunt, catch, eat, and Maim.

    Ronnie Brown was a huge loss for the Dolphins. While Williams has run well, that team is a lot different without Brown.

    I expect to see a lot of Pat White this time around, as a conventional offense with Henne isn't going to do much.

    On paper, it shouldn't even be a game, but they played us tough in New England last time. So I'm not taking anything for granted here.

    its will be a good game if the fish can get a few hits on brady if they can get to him they can hold the pats under 20

    but with out ronnie brown there wild cat is not the same

    If they do apply pressure we are not winning this. I hope it doesn't go that way.:(

    Me, I'm waiting for Aqua, a.k.a. Wide Receiver to return with some more totally wrong and hilarious football statements. He was posting here furiously about this game and the AFCE race but vanished immediately after the Phins unexpected loss to the Bills juggernaught.

    If Matt Light starts at LT, Joey Porter will knock Tom Brady on his

    backside most of the game and the Pats will lose.

    I feel less intelligent for having looked at the Phins message boards.

    That's common with a lot of fan message boards.

    I did find one somewhat interesting thread on Fin Heaven. They are discussing an article from the National Football Post on how the Saints were able to contain Welker and Moss - and whether the Dolphins should try the same tactic. General consensus is no way, they don't have the personnel to pull that off. Most think for them to have any chance to win it will be with pressure to Brady rather than double covering Welker and Moss. I think if that happens though Brady will get sacked a couple times, the passing game will have a big day.
