I read that earlier...

...how fishy is that report card...Bills a C? and the Broncos a D?

Broncos had almost as many injuries as us. QB unhealthy all year...TD out for most of the season...leading WR out for the season...

But look how everybody is jumping on that Brady Crunch bandwaggon...

If we make it to the AFC..........

championship game then I would think that the media would really jump on our bandwagon.:D Until that happens, then they won't. I also am in favor of the underdog role. When you're the underdog nobody expects too much of you.:goof:

I agree. I like the underdog role....that way a win is that much sweeter, and the "Prognosticators" eat crow! :D

This just shows how stupid the so called experts really are. They all picked the Dolphins to finish anywhere from 5-11 to 7-9 so wouldn't by thoose standards shouldn't we get an A. I would also give Miami an A due to the fact of the amount of injuries that we have had, but still finished 11-5. No other team has had this much bad luck, and still ended up in the playoffs. Look at Denver they lost a couple guys, and went from super bowl contender to playoff watcher. The same goes for the Colts. Every team that made the playoffs deserves an A in my book. Only 12 teams go out of 31, to be the only team that has been included in thoose 12 teams for the past 5 years straight deserves an A by any ones gradeing system.

I have to disagree w/ you 'bout the injuries and still making the PO's. Ravens lost: RB Jamal Lewis Starter-Training Camp
DE Michael McCrary -Starter
OL Leon Searcy-Starter- Training Camp
LS Joe Maese

Not to mention that RB's Terry Allen and Jason Brookins missed several games w/ broken bones(hand and foot respectively)
DE Rob Brunet lost time w/ a pulled calf and groin
The Goose missed a couple of games w/ knee problems.
One game Goose was the ONLY starting DL on the field.
DB James Trapp has missed tons of time w/ a severely pulled groin. Elvis missed two games w/ concussion and rib problems.
DL Sam Adams missed a couple games w/ knee problems and had to get his knee scoped.
Speedy WR Patrick Johnson missed almost the whole season( only played one or two games) w/ a broken clavicle
OG Edwin Mulitalo(starter) Missed a couple of games w/ leg problems.

And all this is just off the top of my head w/o looking it up!
Ravens still ended up 10-6. I know there is a couple I'm missing.
I'm not trying to downplay the Phins injuries by stating all of this.
It shows a lot of character when teams can fight thru adversity like this.
