    Well next week will be a blood bath, but it looks like two W's against the Bills with Taylor maybe out for the year and KC on a downward spiral

    Its really starting to look that way, isnt it?

    Pfft, we cant even tank, lol. Not that I'm complaining, I really hate seeing us lose.

    In his defense, Gase could really use an 8-8 finish to avoid the losing season, not that it helps us come draft day.

    If this roster gets 8 wins someone should build a statue of the coaching staff beside Marino's

    I was just thinking the same thing. KC looks beatable? But it’s in KC. And Buffalo, well anything can happen, last year proved that.

    As of right now there are 8 teams with lower record than ours and 3 with the same record so if the draft was today at best we'd be drafting 9 and at worst we'd be drafting 12 and that is a big difference. Half the team that needed to win today to help us out actually lost too. I can't see us beating NE and as far as the last 3 games after that it's hard to tell. We played a good game today but we beat nobody but KC has been losing thought they're still in the middle of it so they'll really need that game and it's in KC and then the bills home and away can go either way. At this point I'll say we'll be drafting about 12 or 13

    Ozzy rules!!

    Seems like Gronk might get suspended

    I have the suspicion that Nathan Peterman will outduel Jay Cutler in at least one of their two matchups, probably the first. It would just make sense. They get beat next week by New England, that's a no-brainer. KC is a toss up because Arrowhead might be half-full by then and the Chiefs are really bad. But they pass to the tight end and run a lot of screens, both of which kill Miami. So 6-10 is my guess with the only win being against the Bills.

    He concussed the Bills best corner, If Gronk is suspended that increases our chances of winning.

    8-8 is never happening. Don’t fool yourself to think Miami is good after beating a horrible VJ lead team. I’m sticking to my original prediction of 5-11

    He will be suspended, that might be the most nastiest cowardly play I've ever seen.

    Gotta love the dolphin special, aka winning 7 or 8 games a year, missing the playoffs and drafting in the middle of the first.

    This team doesn't even do a good job of being a crappy franchise.

    Because he's part of the Pats will get a reprieve and make it game 16 when it doesn't count

    I agree it must have been very frustrated, but it still doesn't excuse it. It needs serious attention.

    He was mugged? Have you ever watched what Gronk does seemingly every play on the person defending him?

    I would be frustrated too but two wrongs don't make it a right and he said that he shouldn't have done that. He doesn't seem like the type of guy that would do that but he did. In college he'd have been ejected and he should have been in today's game as well but it is the pats

    Gronk and the Patriots routinely get away with way too much for me to feel any sympathy for the guy. You' re a professional. Act like it and don't spear someone on the ground and out of bounds because you're upset.

    That warrants a multi-game suspension. It is hard to believe he did that.....

    If they dont it could be free hits on QB etc like Brady. They have to make a stand, a fine wont do it.

    Yeah Gronk was held...so what? Pulling on a guy's jersey during the play doesn't justify spearing a guy who's on the ground, and deliberately driving your shoulder/elbow into his head/neck in a deliberate effort to injure him. That was downright dirty. Whoever called it 'disgusting' was right. It absolutely deserves a multi-game suspension, but I feel like he'll probably avoid it.

    Gronk should be suspended. But honestly, what he did was assault. He should probably get a night in jail. If did that to someone on the street he’s be in cuffs.

    Free hits on Brady galore after that crap. Even the Pats are hoping the penalty is severe to keep teams from teeing off on the golden boy.

    I always knew Gronk was a doofus but I never saw a dirty player. Getting away with mugging guys is one thing ... driving a guy's head into the ground after the play is borderline criminal. That was dirtier than what Burfict did to Brown in the playoffs ... and that was one of the dirtiest plays I've seen in the post Romanowski/Harrison era of the NFL.

    Dolphins might get to 6-10. No way they win next week. I doubt they win in KC or Buffalo also.

    I hope we hit tommy not more than we did in the last game. We lost but we hit him a lot. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with his Achilles injury but word was his left arm was heavily bandaged too. We got blown out but beat up tommy boy. Next best thing to me.

    I don't know it is possible. Highly doubtful though. Probably more likely 6-10. As far as Gronkowski goes, he is a scumbag like most of the Patriots and their fans. They will not win the Superbowl this year and they will be in decline mode very soon. Brady and Belichick will not defy the reality of aging no matter how it may look at this time.

    This is what I never understood about the NFL...

    Let's say that one player punches another after a play. That's assault... on national TV. There are police all around the field watching. Why don't they arrest the player? If the police see you punching someone outside of a bar, you're going to jail. But when they see some meathead doing it on the field, it's okay? Why?
