I am interested in this:

* Do the Fins show up and play hard or do they run for the bus?
* Do the Fins make this their playoff game or do they freeze up in the cold weather?
* Do they concentrate and secure the cold, slick ball or do they put the ball on the carpet left and right?
* Do they square up and tackle or do they shy away from contact and reach and grab tackle.

I think Philbin did a nice job this week blast the AC in the practice bubble. I want to see the team show up and play hard...be physical.

There's a big snowstorm blowing through right now, but the snow should stop in the pre-dawn hours. There will be snow piled up on the sidelines though, for sure.

I can't believe it's already week 17. No NHL to get through the winter. It's going to be a long off season.

As us fans of our beloved Miami Dolphins embark on the close of the 2012 season. We can cheer as loud as we can one more time before the curtain falls and 2013 will be upon us fast. Let's go into Foxhole and send those ***triots to the #4 Seed! For me today makes 31 years of being a fan of our MIAMI DOLPHINS. Hope to celebrate with a W tomorrow!!!!! GO DOLPHINS!!!!!!!!!!

Brady tied Johnny Unitas' record for TD passes against the Jags last week, leaving him 7 behind Brees' record. He'll tie it by week 6 next season (playoffs don't count) unless he doesn't throw one in his next seven reg. season games

I want to see how mentally tough this Fins team is today.

My point about the mental toughness aspect is that the Fins need to stem the tide of all the factors that favor the Pats. New England is pissed from playing poorly last week. The crowd will pumped to have Miami in town with wintery weather they have. The Pats will be stoked to have Gronkowski back. Finally, they want to be playing well going into the playoffs.

Saying all of that, the Fins must match their intensity. Stay in the game early. Don't give the Pats gifts early (like the last game we had with them). Through physical and steady play, show the Pats they are in for dogfight today.

The Fins have something to play for...time to battle the adversity and make a statement on national tv.

anyone get that feeling like we are about to be crushed today by the patriots? we played them very close at home and made it for a tough game for them. I think they have a point to prove today while also trying for a bye week in the playoffs. Dont get your hopes up fin fans.

The Dolphins have to be tough...both physically and mentally.
