Dolphins at New England. Anybody think Miami can keep it within two scores?

No, Miami is not even close to the level of Patriots .. in coaching or player talent

New England I hate personally..because they cheat.. do I think they are talented.. gosh yes...

I wouldn't be surprised if they don't beat them by 30 points. The little boost Miami got after firing
their coach is about to fall of a cliff.. I told my son I would wear a bra around town (outside shirt)tomorrow if
Miami wins tonight.

yeah right now unless something weird injury or something...

weird happens we are looking at GB/NE CAR/NE ARI/NE or Bengals Superbowl I don't think any other teams
have much of a shot currently. Maybe Brady or Rodgers goes down..

I mean the vikings have a very poor chance ..with a good OL maybe decent to fair chance.. I think
we are a year out and believe me I hope we sweep the pack and somehow when a ring..I just am trying not
to get to drunk on purple koolaid...

I'm not ready to write off most of the league. Every year two or three teams surge in the second half and at least one of those teams you just mentioned will lose their first playoff game.

If I had to choose right now, though, it's hard to say it wouldn't be GB/NE.

The Cardinals won't make it past the first round of the playoffs.

The important part of the season hasn't even come yet, early season wins are all well and good for positioning yourself to make a run, but December is when we start to figure out who the Contenders and who the Pretenders are.

Much as I hate to admit it, my lease favorite team (gb) and my least favorite QB (brady) are the obvious class of the NFL. Everybody else is at least a notch down. I'm hoping for bad luck for GB and NE.

Take the source with a grain of salt but if true...what in the world...?!

Jeremiah Ratliff - DL - Free Agent

Ex-Bears DT Jeremiah Ratliff allegedly claimed "I am the devil" and "wished staff members' children would die" upon his release last week.

Also, according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports, Ratliff said he "felt like killing everybody in the building" and returned to the facility one time after getting his pink slip. It's pretty safe to say Ratliff, 34, won't be getting another opportunity in football. His career is likely over.
