    Should prove to be interesting. Pats fans seem to think his throws and timing are way off. His stats are worse than Tanny's. I don't think they see this as an easy win at all.

    I've watched a few Pats games. I know their WRs havnt always been on the same page as Brady. Welker is huge miss. Seen the same thing with RT & Wallace. It happens. I know the Pats are winning the East again. That's the bottom line.

    Apparently Brady's posture is rather slouchy, and Bellichek is starting to look more "soul-less"...

    Why the sarcasm? All I said was Brady has had problems.....so what. Pats fans moaning about Brady. Give me a break! I couldn't care less about Pats apparent woes.

    I think he's starting to lose it physically. Some of his issues have been no receiving options, but there's been times when he's just looked flat out bad on his own merits. Doesn't mean he isn't dangerous still, but he ain't the same old guy

    Its his head and football saavy we need to worry about .He may be diminishing physically but he is a coach playing QB.He will take advantage of any flaws or weaknesses in our defense and we have a few.....defending TEs for instance.

    The best way to beat him is to be solid in our base defense and to pressure him incessantly.Stick Jordan and Wake on him .

    Even if true, keep in mind the Patriots are also the best coached unit in the AFCE, even if Brady does not put up huge numbers they find ways to win from ST's to Defense to changing things up and going run heavy.

    What I do think we have going for us is the Bills game was the worst I've seen Philbin's team perform, Pats are looking at a bounce back game from us and had better be ready for a fight

    His 3rd qtrs have been bad.......REAL bad.......and overall their 3rd down completion % rate is really down this year as compared to years past....

    Not signing Welker is proving to be one of BB's more questionable moves out of all the questionable move he has done....

    That being said....TB12 is still a monster, and I dont expect them to beat them up here...

    Yeah, I'm sure they're quaking in their cleats....oh wait, no, that's their defensive linemen fidgeting with anticipation at the thought of going against our offensive line.

    Suspect w/o Mayo and Wilfork we see lots of inside runs and less passing.

    From what I have seen, IMO he is out of sync with his receivers. He expects them to make the same reads he does as the play evolves. He wants them to sit in space facing zone coverages or beat a defender facing man coverages. What happens is that when receivers face zone, they don't stop their routes so brady has been throwing behind them. I think that problem is slowly getting better though.

    Agree Dis, but one thing that will be fun to watch, as time goes on, is how pastie fans will react when he's gone...we've had the Marino blues for 15 yrs now...I wish them the same torture we've endured...

    It won't be an easy win. If we lose, it'll probably be something like the last two weeks, where we're in it, even have a lead, but do something to mess it up. Of course, this could be the week we play mistake free football and win a close one instead! Put it this way, if we can't hold this Pats offense to 20 points or less, we're doing it wrong, Brady notwithstanding.

    Because they've won it 10 of the last 12 years?

    They always find a way to win. We on the other hand....

    It's pure fantasy, but if we somehow found a way to win in Foxboro, I'm not sure there'd be a favorite in the division - it'd just be a dogfight the rest of the way. The Jets play the Bengals (at Cinci) this week, too, but there'd be a chance of having three teams with the same amount of losses in the loss column. After three losses in a row, that's sort of the only thing that could re-invigorate a fanbase used to, at this point, seeing the Dolphins be constantly mediocre or worse. A win in New England sort of gives you credibility back.

    But like I said, fantasy.

    He looked pretty good on the last second TD pass to beat the Saints a couple weeks ago. And, getting Gronk back is HUGE.

    Brady may be getting a little long in the tooth, and losing Welker is probably a bigger loss to him mentally than anything else, but one thing is for sure. He is a proven winner. You can throw all the stats out the window, we'll have our hands full this Sunday. If ever there was a week for Jordan to have a break out game, this is it.

    Also jam Gronkowsky (sp?) at the LOS on EVERY play, just like the Pats did to Graham of the Saints, that's how they beat them. Graham didn't catch a single pass that game and he's a top-3 TE in this league this year.

    Please... I can see the headline now.. "Vintage Brady as Pats outlast Dolphins"... "Patriots back to winning ways"... "Pats show AFC East is still theirs to lose"... sure, objectively speaking, we COULD beat them... but that's boring and non fanatical.

    I have a dream . . . (Apologies to the great Dr. MLK) . . . that we live in a world where Tom Brady and Bill Bellichick both retire and Pats fans are judged by the content of their faith, or lack thereof, in their once-great football team, and that they endure the hell Dolphins fans have since the retirement of Don Schula and Dan Marino, for at least the same number of years. . .

    I have a dream, that it happens February 2014 . . .

    As long as we convert Td's in red zone trips and not FG's, should work just fine.

    This game will come down to either ST or Defenses making things happen, watched the Jest v Pats game and noticed Edelman is one heck of a returner and Slater for them made the pro bowl as a STer last yr.

    I want our Defensive line to bring back Tom Brady's spleen, where they immediately pickle and infuse the beer at Sun Life Stadium with it.

    I want him bleeding out of every orifice.

    I want Giselle performing pedicures for our Skill Position players next week.

    I want Brady's kid working in a sweat shop making Dolphin Hats.


    Is this too much to ask?

    Guys - this is probably the worst Pats team they have fielded since Brady became the QB. I think the Cassel led Pats were better. The Jets really should have beat them in NE. They came within a FG with a rookie QB starting his 2nd NFL game 4 DAYS after starting his first. Think about that. If Geno Smith doesn't turn the ball over 3 times in the 4th quarter, the Jets would have a season sweep over them. I know you are down on your team, but do you honestly think that the Jets are that much better than the Dolphins, if even better at all?

    The loss of Wilfork and Mayo is huge. Excluding Geno scrambles, the Jets ran the ball 46 times against them. There should be no reason why Miami can't follow the same game plan. I understand you have line issue, but the run blocking is ok, no? You have a better set of receivers than the Jets and NY was able to convert 3rd down after 3rd down. Offensively, other than Gronkowski, they don't have much. Do their RB's scare you? They shouldn't. None of their WR's are going to burn you deep. Gronkowski will get his catches because Brady will throw the ball his way a ton. But it will not be enough.

    Hey - maybe the Jets just happened to catch them flat both times they played them. But I really think they are an average team these days. And they are certainly beatable this Sunday. I would not be surprised at all by a Miami win.

    Lol. I'm just calling it as I see it. I've got to see NE up close and personal twice. They have some major flaws that even BB can't cover with his coaching.

    Anyone can beat anyone on any given Sunday, as evidenced by last week's Bills game. But I really like your chances, pissed off NE team or not. I think they are going to have a hard time scoring against your defense.

    Depends on which Dolphins team shows up. Huge difference in the team that beat the Colts and the one that lost to the Bills. Hopefully we'll have better pass protection and also have Ellerbe and our DBs back as well as play DJordan most of the damn game.

    I want to see Brady picking himself up off the turf with that pissed off "how dare they" look and then then throwing a tantrum on the sideline.

    He could beat us with one arm. We did just lose to a former practice swad QB. And the Bills didn't even run the ball that well. Not that Thad Lewis did that much either. 202 yards and 1 INT. Our ineptitude is what killed us, and it doesn't matter who is playing QB then or how they're playing. Maybe the Dolphins fix that, but if they do who knows when it might rear its ugly head again.

    All 4 teams in the division have lots of glaring holes and the Pats are no exception (which makes Sunday's loss all the worse since we could've tied them in the loss column). Regardless of our issues I think we can sneak a win over them, just doubt it will be this coming week. They know how to bounce back from a tough loss, especially at home.

    The pats were more successful relying on a strong D and running game. Their D has taken a couple hits but they always figure it out. They have 3 capable runners, Ridley, Bolden and Vereen, and the last two are good at catching out of the backfield.
