    My head says Kansas City and Gonzalez showed just how unprepared our defense is to deal with a big, fast tight-end. New England has a whole slew of those guys, though not to Gonzalez' level. However, my heart says don't count out Miami at home, with a healthier Surtain and Taylor.

    After carefull consideration and checking with my magic 8 ball. It told me that Miami would win but the darn thing never gives me the score. So I'll guess Miami 31 New England 20.

    I don't see a win here...Pats are pissed too, with superior coaching.

    Sorry just my humble opinion

    The Pats and 'Fins are both P/O'd and both team's offensive strengths play to the other's defensive weakness so it's difficult to call. One thing we do have going in our favor that the Patsies don't is the fact that we are getting Surtain back and they're not getting anything back to help that run D. My prediction:

    'Fins 34
    Pats 28

    finz/pats.....................

    ADPHIN87: well i guess you and i are not real fans, because i see it the same way you do. i took some verbal from the homers after picking the jets to win. the question is WHO DO YOU THINK WILL WIN, not who do you want to win. i want miami to win this game as well as all the games they play, but wanting won't make it happen. so that being said, my predicition is.......................

    pats 24

    finz 17


    miami has a lot to prove, like it or not. look at this game. the pats have been giving it up big against the run so you think ricky should come in for a hey day running the ball but we always do the opposite. billichek will miraculously fix there run defense this week and feebler will have to throw the ball. he will throw 2 pics and it will cost us. if a team is dead last against the pass we seem to not be able to throw the ball, if there last against the run, we can't run! we just have to start taking advantage of teams weeknesses on a consistant basis.

    our defense just gets roasted by quality offenses. and drubbings to, 60 points, 48 points, 41 points, etc.... we are abismal in the playoffs and fail miserably against good offenses. this team has a lot to prove before i would bet any money on them.

    so, when asked who do i THINK will win, i use the theory what if i was betting my family's money for the month, the mortgage, the food, the car payment, would i take miami over the wounded world champs who have a superior qb and the best defensive mind in the game? no. do i WANT miami to win? hell yes.

    are these threads started just to give the homers a forum to say how we are going to blow the other team out every week or is it a forum to express our thoughts on who we really think will win?

    this is a cool thread if we can express our thoughts and not turn it into homer time!!

    Lower scoring than you all think. Fins defense bounces back, and Miami runs out a lead with Ricky grinding away the fourth quarter. They will not get another shoot out again.

    Fins: 17

    Pats:7

    Pats melt in the heat. By the fourth quarter Ricky will be running over a tired and slow defense.

    I say they still don't figure out how to stop the run.
    Ricky rushing: 210 yds. 3tds.

    I hope I am right but last week I picked us to win by 10 so what do I know. If I am wrong again I am going to guess the complete opposite of what I think next week.

    The Dolphins' defenders have struggled when teams have spread them out, like the Patriots have done to all four opponents this season. The Patriots' defenders have struggled to stop powerful backs from running wild, such as the Dolphins' Ricky Williams.

    Expect Miami to follow San Diego's lead with LaDainian Tomlinson by giving Williams a heavy load, while being meticulous and conservative with its passing game. That will help the Dolphins stay away from the Patriots' strength in coverage by taking everything they can get short. Ball and clock control will be key, to preserve a lead and keep red-hot Tom Brady off the field.

    Both teams can move the ball efficiently on the other, but the Dolphins are in much better shape to win the time of possession, putting them in better shape to win this game. Dolphins 23, Patriots 20

    After getting ripped by Priest it's interesting to see that the Pats couldnt stop LT (as in Ladanian Tomlinson)...Will they stop Ricky??
    Unlike everybody else i think they will...Belichick is a great coach and he'll stack up the line or find ways to confuse Ricky...
    Ricky will be available underneath though with screens and short passes...i certainly don't see him getting 100 yds rushing...

    On Defense it will be interesting to see how we respond after last weeks debacle..I think that we'll blitz a bit more but its pretty useless against Cool and calm Brady...
    Having Pat back would be a huge boost....without him i dont see our fins winning...In the end i think we lose a heartbeaker

    Definetly a Blowout.....

    Phins 38

    Ricky Rushes for 140+ yds and 2 td's
    Konrad Catches one for a TD
    Gadsden catches one
    and D Clark Cathes one

    Of Course Chambers and McMicheals make some clutch cathes they dont reach the endzone this week.

    Mare for one TD

    Pats 13

    The Miami Defense bounces back Vineteri is gonna be their leading scorer...:D :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Miami can't defend the middle of the field thats obvious and the Pats will expose it all day long.

    I expect to see heavy doses of Ricky mixed in with some Minor and Edwards with Konrad catching some passes to open things up.
    This is the game where the role players like Minor, Edwards, McNight, Ward and Weaver need to step up and contribute because Bill B. loves to shut down a teams main three or four offensive threats and make you beat him with the rest of the team.

    NE will try to involve their TE's only to find they don't have as much talent there (Cam 10 for 56 yards, Fauria 7 for 58 yards, Graham 4 for 32 yards) as Randy McMicheal has more yards then their 3 TE's combined. Defense finally shows up on both sides of the ball as Miami welcomes back Surtain and changes up strategies while NE tries to play their "big nickel" up on the line of scrimmage.

    Dangerous game with Fielders arch nemesis Victor Green playing. Miami will try to create new schemes to go back to Konrad/McMicheal and ram Ricky up the gut for a solid 115 yards on 25+ carries. Fielder learns not to throw the ball deep unless NE plays the line to stop Ricky.

    Phins 20
    NE 17

    Scary season defining game.

    How do you think the special teams for the Dolphins will do now that AJ is not playing. This could be key. I hope there are no turnovers.

    I can see Belichick's game plan now.

    1. Put nine guys in the box to stop Williams.
    2. LOOK for the screen pass to Williams and knock him on his *** before the pass.
    3. On passing downs put Fiedler on his ***. Blitz on the offensive LT and center.
    4. Cover the short pass and make Fiedler beat us with the long pass.

    I don't think the Pats can do all this all game long. Ricky gets 125 rushing yards maybe 75 in the 4th QTR.

    Well, this will be a good game probably the game of the week. Ricky Williams will rip apart the Patsies D, I'd say 174yds, 2TD's. But, Brady will also have a big game and I believe they come out on top in the end, I'd say..........Pats-24..Dolphins-20

    Barker, if Rickey runs for 174 yds with 2 T.D.s at home no way we lose. Time of possession will be like 35/25 our way if thats the case. Mid way in the forth quarter the Pats will be behind something like 27-13 and they'll be ready to go home at the same time in Jillyland the Raiders will be killing your team so that's what you should probably be worried about. Hey, if I was impolite to you in the other thread I'm sorry but you dissed Fiedler and you left Gadsden out when talking about our quality recievers. I'm pretty sure you don't really go to bakesales.

    I'll bet you that Ricky Williams doesn't get 75 yards this week. NE is going to gear the whole D to stooping this guy....Miami will need to win through the air.
