    Do we root for those ladies from NY or do we chant for those fairies from Beantown?

    If NY wins, they have beat us already and a win would put them even farther ahead in the tie breaker...

    However the Patsies are still the dominate team in our division and we're used to rooting bad luck their way..

    In reality it really doesnt matter who wins or who loses, because we still have our destiny in our hands, but still.. we have to root for someone to lose.. So who do you want to lose and why?

    I say we root for the Patsies to knock the Jests down. And then we take care of the Pats the following week. Finally the last game of the year we beat the Jests to take the division.

    sweeeeet!

    Hopefully they beat the crap out of each other with the jets losing in a heartbreaking fashion. That would be sweet.

    I truly would not mind witnessing a HUGE comet landing at mid-field a second before kickoff.

    Root for the Pats.

    If Jets lose.. and we beat oakland.


    Pats 7-3
    Jets 6-4
    Fins 6-4
    Bills 6-4

    The next week the Jets play Tennessee and we Play the Pats. Lets assume the Jets lose to the undefeated Titans, and we beat the Pats at home.

    Fins 7-4
    Pats 7-4 (0-2 against Mia 2-2 Div)
    Bills 7-4 (0-1 against Mia 0-3 Div)
    Jets 6-5 (1-0 against Mia 2-2 Div)

    (Bills have two easy games coming up (Cle, KC)

    I think we have to root for the Pats. It comes down to division records and tiebreakers. We already beat the Pats and Bills - lost to the Jets, though we should have won.

    Rose colored glasses ...

    I was at that game. Could have won it? Definitely. Should have won it? I don't think so.

    Luck seems to follow Favio where ever he plays. (((See punt pass TD for explanation )))

    :D
    Thanks for the chuckle.

    Ultimately, we should root for the pastries. The Dolphins have had much more success of late against NE and the Yets have just owned the Dolphins in recent years.

    I like the Dolphins chances against NE at home much more than NY in Joizy.

    Wow, as much as I hate to say it, I guess a Pats win would be the way to go, knock the Jets off of their win streak. But its always wonderful to watch the Patriots lose ;)

    I believe the first tie breaker is head to head, then division, then conference.
    If we win out we win the AFC East no matter what the rest of the teams in the east do because we would be 5-1 in the division.

    Tall order and yet not conceivable but everyone else seems to be passing around the rose colored glasses. Why not try them on. :beer1:

    As Ferguson said, (more or less) We have to win and not depend on what anyone else does.

    yes knock the jets off so we move into second place assuming we win, then the NE game has even more relevance.

    I hate the Patsies with a passion and couldn't root for them if my life depended on it, and I like the Jets even less.

    I'm not rooting for either of them, I hope they just beat the hell out of each other.

    I knew alot of you guys wouldnt get it. We need the Pats to lose when it comes to simply getting in the playoffs. If the Pats lose to the Jets, that gives us an opportunity to sweep the Patriots next week and put them in our rear view mirror.

    When two teams are tied for a wild card spot within the same division, they use the division tie breaker scenerio to eliminate a team from the mix. So even if its a 3 way tie at 10-6,(hypothetically Colts, phins, and Jets) we DO NOT want to be in a situation where we are tied with the Jests and do not hold the tie break on them. Because they will knock us out of the mix if they sweep us.(Assuming the Patsies beat them and go on to win the division themselves, leaving the Jets and Phins battling for 2nd place in the division).

    I DO NOT want to go into that last week having it be a make or break game. Face it, the road game vs. the Jets is the toughest game we have left. I DO NOT want to be 10-5 and still be forced to win that game to get in. In other words we need to secure winning at least 2nd place in our division.

    Having said all that we do still control our own destiny, after all we are barely past the half way point. You could also argue that in terms of winning the division, it may be best for the Patsies to win vs. the Jets. Maybe so, but Im DYING to taste some playoff action again. If the Jets beat the Patsies, it presents an opportunity to really get a leg up on at least 2nd place in the division by beating the Patsies the following week.

    We could really lock that down if the Patsies lose to the Jets, then we beat them and the Bills. Then all we need to do is beat out either the Colts or Ravens one or the other. And if you havent looked at the Ravens schedule, its absolutely brutal. If they get to 10 wins, they more than earn a playoff spot. And personally, it looks to me like the Colts are back on their way to getting to 10 wins. They have a soft schedule too and they dont play the Titans till the last week when the Titans could very well be sitting alot of players.

    No way to the jets.
    the jets will be 6-6 in three weeks, there is no need to worry about them.
    We would cotrol the division if we be the patriots. At this stage of the game a win over the patriots would be like an extra win, it would force the patriots to have a one game lead over us at the end of the year, and with our schedule i would like our chances.
