At what point did we earn respect? I''m shocked the line isn't bigger.

My prediction vs New England 


It would be great top see Tannehill win this one over Brady but it's going to be ugly I am afraid.

Can we stop Brady?  Our pass defense sucks......

New England will roll easily.........flushedflushedflushedflushedflushedflushedflushedflushedflushedflushedflushedflushedflushed

I'd be surprised if we kept within a touchdown.  I'm thinking NE 37 MIA 17.  I feel like Brady will make our secondary look as bad as it is.

Heads up - I merged the 2 NE threads into 1 & made them into the game thread, so please don't think any posts were deleted!

Gosh, everyone thinks it's a foregone conclusion that NE will win this game mad
I'm NOT saying there's no reason for that but that's also when upsets can happen & NOTHING would please me more than for them to overlook this game & we end up kicking them in the nuts (except Brady doesn't have those tongue - anyone who does perfume & Ugg boot ads doesn't deserve them.  Sorry excited).

I'll be watching.....

Both a tough game to win and lose. The only way to win this one is to play mistake free and cause turn overs. Pressure Brady. And have the refs calls go our way. And luck that's a must. I know that all sounds like a pipe dream.

I want the dolphins to win but I believe that the dolphins players already feel that they lost. They look so nervous.

Might be a long day so pass the pipe, MiaFan! wink
Bad snap & bad drop by Fields....perfect mistake that they just capitalized on ohlord.  Miami has to play mistake-FREE @ the very least in order to have a chance.  I know it's raining but that's NO excuse.


Trimmed the fat from this Insider article on this matchup:

With the Dolphins set to face the New England Patriots on Sunday, we checked in with PatriotsInsider.com publisher Jon Scott to get the inside scoop on Bill Belichick's team. Here's what Scott had to say about the Pats.

Ho-hum, bored1 the Patriots are going to win the AFC East and make a run for the Super Bowl ... how, if at all, if this year's NE team any different than years past?


Jon Scott:
The difference in this year’s Patriots team is that it has 5 (YES, Five!) tight ends on the roster. Usually the team goes with 2 or 3; last year it was 2. A tight-end-heavy lean has given the team a new look to the offense, and more power in the running game. That is evidenced by the fact that they are the sixth-best rushing team in the NFL, averaging 143 yards per game. They’re not doing it with padded stats from running quarterbacks like #1 Washington (RGIII) and #2 San Francisco (Kaepernick), nor do they rely on a one-main-back system like San Fran, #3 Minnesota (Adrian Peterson), #4 Kansas City (Jamaal Charles) or #5 Houston (Arian Foster). They do what they do with a rag tag bunch of unknowns.

In 2011 the Patriots were the 20th-ranked rushing team in the NFL, averaging just 110 yards per game, most of which came from one back, BenJarvus Green-Ellis. How many teams let their lead rusher walk, and actually improve the ground game without signing/drafting a new stud RB?


What in the world is going on with Wes Welker, with this talk of Bill Belichick "freezing him" because of his contract situation? Where would this offense go without him?

JS: The easy answer is the team would be in real trouble without Welker this year, and Belichick knows it. The contract squabble is about positioning each side for the best possible deal. Rather than deal with that dance, the Patriots — as they have done for years under Belichick — would rather let a guy walk than sacrifice the team balance by overpaying for past performance. That philosophy tends to rub people (fans, players, observers) the wrong way. But in reality, that’s really the best system to use.

Welker accounts for 28 percent of the team’s passing yardage this year, and about 27 percent of the team’s first downs (via pass). He’s big when it matters, but not more important than, say, Rob Gronkowski, who has similar numbers.

How much better is the running game this year with Stevan Ridley taking over for the law firm of BenJarvus Green-Ellis?

JS: As I noted earlier, this year’s Patriots running game is actually better than last year’s group. Although Ridley was part of both, without Green-Ellis the team has become more dynamic in the ground game. Ridley has proven he can get tough yards, which was Green-Ellis’ forte. Without "The Lawfirm” around, the team can actually find some snaps for RB Shane Vereen, who had a chance to show how dynamic he can be with his speed last week vs the Jets. Again, the Patriots are the 6th best rushing unit in 2012, compared to the 20th best unit in 2011 — a huge improvement for them.

Fan favorite Danny Woodhead remains the third-down back of choice, but Vereen is pushing him for playing time. Even undrafted rookie Brandon Bolden had an impact early; he’s averaged a team best 5.4 yards per carry.

The Patriots are second in the league with 34 takeaways, this from a defense that gives up a lot of yards; how are they doing this, mirrors?

JS: Ball-hawking and opponent ineptitude has contributed to the Patriots’ good fortune. I can’t recall a year when they’ve been this aggressive in going after the ball. One thing that has definitely picked up is the forced fumble tackling. While the technique of trying to strip tackle opponents leads to some missed tackles, it has also yielded significant increase in opponent fumbles

Who is the one player on defense the Dolphins have to concern themselves with, and why?

JS: Vince Wilfork is the key to New England’s success on defense. He’s been subbed out a lot recently, which other teams have taken advantage of by running up the middle when he’s not there. He’s constantly double-teamed, yet still manages to bring pressure up the middle. He can split double teams to get to the quarterback.

Finally, your prediction for Sunday's game, and why?

JS: I fully expect New England to struggle defensively in this game, much like they have vs the Colts and Jets, right up to the point where turnovers take over the game. Without the turnovers — which resulted in points — the Patriots were in one-score games with both Indy and New York. The comedy of errors in New York doomed the Jets, while bad passes by Andrew Luck resulted in that game getting out of hand fast. If Ryan Tannehill avoids making dumb mistakes, and the Dolphins protect the ball, I expect a pretty close game. I do expect New England to continue their December success, and win the game, but only by a one-score difference.

I believe that we pretty much know the outcome. The question is how many points the Patriots will score?

I will not feel bad after this because the patriots are a real good football team from Coaching to player execution. I only want the dolphins to play hard but it seems that this is another game where the team did not prepare properly and that falls on Philbin.

Not sure how PFF has Clemons at #17.  He takes horrible angles.  His poor angle almost cost us a TD on that last play.  We need at upgrade!

Good to see Brady on the turf.  IF we're gonna have any chance of winning this game, we need to hit Brady.

I'm w/you, Jenn - I just wanna see them compete! I don't question the outcome but I just HATE it flushed
Their team isn't infallible, tho, & Aaron Hernandez has already had 2 drops & Brady way overthrew what could've been ANOTHER TD for them....now they just went 3 & out so I hope our D continues to step up & keep the Princess Brady on his butt, mlb!
