    Re: Bill Simmons hillarious column on ESPN.com

    I love Simmons. I'll admit, it's pretty homerish, but he makes valid points about the Colts and Dolphins.

    Brian, sorry about starting a new thread on the same subject. I did not see yours, but I pretty much came over to the Patsfans website as soon as I finished reading Simmons article.

    Great article and thanks for sharing.

    Re: Bill Simmons hillarious column on ESPN.com

    I thought this was an excellent point(possibly):

    "Fortunately for Dolphins fans, they might have the easiest schedule in the league -- Chaz Batch in Week 1, four against the Bills and Jets, two against the Packers and Lions, one against the Titans, one against Indy's second string in Week 17."
