    Hi, everyone !:) Our Dolphins travel 1254 miles northeast to play the AFC East Divson leading and 5-2 New England Patriots. A win today would even the Fins record to 4-4. Patriots are returning back to NFL action after their bye week.

    Today will be the 85th regular season meeting between the teams. Dolphins lead the all-time series 48-36, but are 18-27 when they play at New England. Both teams split road wins during the 2008 regular season, with the Fins defeatng the Patriots 38-13 at Gillette Stadium back on September 21, and ending their 21-game regular season winnng streak at the time. Fins later lost in the rematch at 28-48 at Landshark Stadium on November 23, highlighted by Matt Cassell's 415 yards passing, and 3 TD's.

    Greg Gunbel and Dan Dierdorf will announce the live TV game commentary for the NFL On CBS's primary early doubleheader game on HD, with WFOR CBS 4 televising locally in Miami.

    Former Fins Jimmy Cefalo, Jim Mandich, and Joe Rose will also announce the live radio game play-by-play andn analysis on flagshp station WQAM SportsRadio 560AM, and the Dolphins Radio Network.

    Local weather forecast for this afternoon's 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff at Gllette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, is Sunny and Clear skies at 61 degrees, 10% precipitaton, 50% humidity, and mild west/northwest winds at 8 miles per hour.

    Visiting Dolphins will dress in their white jerseys and aqua pants, while the host Patriots will wear their navy blue jerseys, and grey pants.

    I wish our Dolphins to play safe and smart football today with a productive offense and swarming defense, no penalties, turnovers, and leave New England with no serious injuries. Let's see our Fins under the leadership of Head Coach Tony Sparano and QB Chad Henne even their record after today to 4-4, and GO DOLPHINS!!!!!:woot: :dolphins::dolphins::dolphins:

    so I'm stuck at work today until 7pm! I know, it sucks beyond belief. The DVR at home is already set to record the game, but I went in to the server room here and changed the sat channel to CBS. (there are cartoon right now, lol) Lets see if some jerk off complains.

    My expectations are also not very high for this one. I won't go so far as to say i won't be angry if we lose(i'm always miserable for a few days after any loss) but I'm having a hard time seeing how we are going to stop the New England O from dropping at least 40 on us. I really, really, really, really hope i'm wrong. A win could really give us a legit shot at the division. GO FINS!!!!!!!!!!

    A very tough game in NE, but a game that is winnable. I only say that because of our track record against the Patsies and the fact that we can put up at least 30. We have to have a lot of things go our way to get the W, but we can dream can't we?

    Come on Phins, get a W here and the division title is a possibility again.

    Look, there's even a skit about how NE will destroy Miami's secondary. Such biased reporting, not one positive thing about Miami.

    honestly, aside from the first game against atlanta where we looked shaky, and the chargers game where pennington got hurt, miami has been in every game, even dominated long stretches of those games. we just haven't been able to put together a complete game. we need a complete game today. offense and defense both needs to show up in the same game.

    sure would be nice of the defense decides to show up in the second half. putting wake in the damn game would help the inconsistent pass rush.

    I like Steve Mariucci. He's the only person NFLN who seems to know what they are talking about.

    one small thing in the rookies favor is that new england won't have a lot of game film on them and brady has never played against them before. they have a chance to surprise and make a play.

    Honestly, we can beat ANY team in this league, any of them. We did amazing against the Colts and Saints, however it seems playcalling came out on the wrong in in those games.

    Still though, throw any team at us, we WILL put up a fight. Hope the Pats are ready for one hell of an effort from this team, hopefully talking about how this was a tough loss for them .. in about 6 hours from now.

    If we dominate NE and then play not to lose by not blitzing and trying not to score, we will lose and I expect PP and Henning to not be here next year.

    are we going to allow them to put moss on davis or will we let the corners swap sides to keep smith on moss? moss on davis will give moss a good size advantage.

    Sean Smith will cover Randy Moss, it's what we drafted him for (covering a #1 WR).

    but I keep hearing how the corners dont switch sides. if they move moss to the other side of the field will smith follow?

    Sparano was asked if he was going to have a new wrinkle in the WC today, and he winked and said yes.

    I've seen that happen in 3 games this year so far, 3 games that were far too many.

    Coincidentally, we only won one of those games, and that was the Jets game. Thanks to Ginn, Soliai, and JT.

    Thigpen could be a joker card too. He can play QB, is fast, and can catch really well.

    I'd rather use Thigpen in the WC. He has experience and was pretty solid on a 2-14 team with almost no weapons. White is still being developed.

    That too. At this point, I certainly trust him much more than I do White.

    Watson is listed as questionable. I hope so. Miami can't cover a TE for their lives.

    The media doesnt play the game and we should care less what they say. The players play the game and im pretty sure that the players on the Dolpins roster know the importance of this game and it is going to be up to them to step up and play tough. If they arent pumped and ready to play some smash mouth football today we are in trouble. I think they will be ready and we win 27-23 on a late TD score out of the Wildcat!!!

    Check out this article from a Boston paper about Bill Parcells.

    http://www.boston.com/sports/football/articles/2009/11/08/franchise_fixer/?page=1

    As fans, we should be grateful to have Parcells as the "big boss" of the Dolphins. The article says that Bill is very happy these days in Miami. This is good. He has a ton of football wisdom in his head that can help the Dolphins win and continue the turnaround we started last year. Let's hope he has some good wisdom to help us get past the Patriots today. We'll need all we can get. Especially our defense vs. Brady and Co.
