Predicting the final score of a preseason game is akin to predicting who is going to be the 143rd player chosen in the NFL Draft.
That said: Miami 50
Arent we playing carolina?:
I say miami wins 20-17
Exactly! Who the heck knows how our 3rd string will do against Carolina (or Jax, for that matter) third stringers?
nothing wrong with having a little fun :
I know that the game is meaningless. It's all in good fun to see who came close to the final score.
we can better predict the score of this game versus the score of other game because this game the starters will play most of it. they will rest in game 4 but this game the starters play 3 quarters. I don't see our 3rd stringers getting any time this game
1st String scores:
Final Game Score:
21-7, Culpepper throws for 2 TDs
By all means, have fun. Don't let me rain on your parade. Its just a really unpredictable game. Will Daunte play the entire 1st half, or just the first qtr?
I stand behind my prediction:
Who knows, who cares - as long as Miami performs well and they accomplish what they set out to accomplish. This game will be closer to the likes of a regular season game because there is some game planning involved and there will be half time adjustments and the starters will likely open the second half.
I'll go with Miami 26 - Panthers 13
Better hope Culpepper doesn't reinjure his knee by the Panthers killer D.
Better hope Mr. Myagi doesn't drop dead!
What the heck kind of comment is that?! Are you trying to sound tough?
If our second string secondary doesnt improve.
If they play like our 1st string
That is what I would do .Play the starters most this game then give them a week off.Kinda like another bye week.
Also I have a question.
Im trying too find four tickets too the chiefs game (wifes birthday).
All I can find on the Fins web site is in the 400's at $75 a piece.
I've never been too A Fins game.
Are the seats ok in the 400's or should I look at trying for some better tickets on ebay or something?
Attack the post not the poster.
I'm just saying with Culpepper's newly recovered knee, Carolina's starting D is not what he needs right now.
The tampa defense is just as good, and he did fine against them, he got sacked a couple times but he got up, no injurey. The quality of another teams defense is irrelevent. I understand what your trying to say though.
that looks good from here. and realistic too
sorry,, but our backfield sucks
if we could have better backfield i would say
IMO, this is the one preseason game where the score matters. Our first team will be out there a lot as will theres. I hope Steve Smith plays so our secondary can get the ultimate test.
I hope you mean defensive backfield. And if you do, your basing this off of what? Our second and third strings are the ones that have been getting beat. Our first team defense has done fine and I'm sick of hearing they suck after 3 quarters of play. Stop throwing them under the bus!:shakeno:
Backups will get the more playing time than the last two games since the first cuts come after this game. So...
Actully this is the game where the starters will play the longest. We could see the first teams into the 3rd quarter. They will certainly be playing the first half.
Just hope that we move the ball well against the starters........what a great test of def. we have had this preseason.....Facing Jack,TB, and Carl. thast a good way to see how your off is doing.....score....guessing....1st half...Mia 17-14......second half......Carl comes back ...our poor depth at CB shows and Stinky Winkey throws 2 tds......28-20 carl.......again...i know its fun to guess...
First teams- Carolina 14 Dolphins 13 (I think the Dolphins are a step behind the Panthers right now and, of course, are on the road).
Final score, who knows? I'll go out on a limb and say the reserve dbs and Cleo Lemon come through for a 27-24 victory.
Well, it ain't gonna get any easier playing at Pitt in the opener when the game actually counts. Both Jacksonville and TB have good D's. It's more a matter of if he's ready than the opponent. And at this point, he seems ready. Maybe not 100% in mobility, but the knees probably about as solid as its gonna get, at least in the near term.
i can't pick against my team.
Well, you're right about starters playing longer. But that does not mean the entire starting offense and defense will play after the half. Only some starters will get extra work in the 3rd quarter. People like Crowder, Welker, the O-Line, W. Allen & other starting secondary players, and maybe Ronnie Brown some.
We most likely won't see Chambers, Culpepper, Thomas, Taylor, Truck, Big Daddy, etc. The older verterans.
Dude, Myagi IS dead. He died a year or two ago.
Ok! Mia 5
GO DOLPHINS!! :dolphins:
I'll be a homer and go Miami 24, Carolina 21.
i think cpep throws his first td pass of the pre season that game.but for score i say 17-13 miami
I like the Miami 50 Jax (Panthers) 8 pick.
I couldn't find where the game will be shown on NFL network. Anyone know the air time/date?
