« Dolphins lead Jets 21-17 going into final quarter | Main | A new list of doubters begins to shadow Miami »

Miami Dolphins the AFC East Champions!

The Miami Dolphins completed the most amazing, improbable, astounding, unexpected, truly magical worst to first climb in NFL history today. They defeated and deflated the New York Jets, 24-17, at Giants Stadium.

Bring on the Baltimore Ravens!

This game means the Dolphins are the AFC East champs. This result means the Dolphins will host the Ravens either Saturday or Sunday at Dolphin Stadium.

It is the first time Miami is in the playoffs since the 2001 season. They lost to the Ravens 20-3 in that last playoff game so long ago. The Dolphins also lost to the Ravens earlier this year. 27-13.

There is no player who deserves this more than quarterback Chad Pennington. He returns to New York, to play the team that discarded him before the season started, and sends them into their offseason.

Pennington threw two touchdown passes this game. He fumbled once. He had no interceptions.

OK, so what do you think about this fanciful turn of events?

And what do you think about the upcoming matchup against Baltimore?

As a famous Miami Beach resident once said, "how sweet it is." To knock both the Jets and Pats out of the playoffs and to become the most unlikely AFC East champion of all time! It can't get any better! Congrats to the huge Dolphins World of Fans.

I'm pumped! I'm so happy we pulled it off, and took down those Jets! Wooooo!!! I love this season. After these last couple weeks, I feel like were on top of the world. We sent Brett home, now let's send Cam Cameron home too!

even ralph kramden-jackie gleason is a happy fan today

LOL WHERE ARE YOU?!?!?!?!

dolphins rule-jets drool.yeah lol where are you loser

man this is my proudest day as a DOLPHINS fan. We went from being the laughing stock of the NFL a year ago - to being one of the best 12 teams in the NFL. I am sure we will be underdogs at home against the Ravens -- so that's nothing keep the disrespect coming while the dolphines keep on winning.

All in one game :
a) Jets out
b) Patiots out
c) Revenge for Game #1
d) Revenge for firing Chad (thanks, jets !!!)
e) The most outstanding team recovery in NFL
f) 100th td pass for Chad
g) Ted Ginn showing his "future"

Wonderful Season, no matter what happens from now on ... Ravens, don't underestimate us... You may be next on the list (letter h)

jason taylor i love you but you wanted out because you didnt wanna play for a loser. i'm sure you'ld like to rethink that right about now wouldnt you. go wildcats, i mean phins.

JAAAAYSONN TAAYLORR what in the world were you thinking. you said you wanted to play with a team with a chance to win it all, redskins NOTT!

h)Retiring Brett Favre before he can chase down any more of Dan's records

the so called experts are expecting the Fins to get blown out next week against BAL. Can't believe we still get no respect! The Fins already made that idiot deon sanders eat crow I guess we need to make the clowns on ESPN do the same!!!

WE ARE BACK!!!!!!!

someone ask JT the dancing queen what it feels like to play for a contender???

azfin,

can u beleive we get no love from the so callrd experts! I'd rather win as the underdog anyway!

has anyone seen the late great i wanna play for a contender traitor jason taylor lately. or do you think he'll be playing couch potato next sunday as he's watching his former non contender team. same old jason same old off season. go FISH

I love Jason Talor. I love Zach Thomas. But funny how they're both gone and we finally make the playoffs. Did Parcells correctly see them as part of our losing culture? The things that make you go hummmmm!

from the 40 yard line, front row (in case i have yet to tell you i was there)it seems the nyets were going through the motions...the friggin head coach doesnt talk to the qb during timeouts, stands there like a frozen overmatched penguin who is on his way out by weeks end, GUARANTEED...there is no way woody can keep mangini...i have been to a number of fish/jets games in miami where the nyets fans have dominated...i must say today, the fish fans were out in force proud and loud...it was friggn surreal and our offense is SO DIFFICULT to prep for...i mean flea flicker to ginn, the wildcat, the late fourth quarter runs with brown and rickey, the nyets d had no idea what was coming next...such a balanced controlled offense completely gelling at the right time.. TEDDY GINN is all about becoming a go to receiver...it is best to keep him off PR AND KO return teams so that he can fully concentrate on receiving...had three huge catches today....and our D completely stuffed T Jones 10 for 23 yards, the AFC's leading rusher...SUPER COACHING forcing Fravre to have to beat us....well coached, well executed game plan, even the final pooch fields punt to the one yard line was the right call...we did get one break that was when cobbs came out then went back in called a touchback...otherwise saftey and free kick and WE LOSE...NFL REFS ARE THE WORST IN ALL PRO SPORTS..that call cost the nyets the game....no reason we CANT TAKE THIS TO THE HOUSE!!! MANDOOOOOOOUGGHHHH

HOLY JESUS!!! WE ARE IN THE POSTSEASON ONCE AGAIN BABY!!! I had predicted 5-11, not 11-5 and AFC East champs!!! I guess Christmas came 3 days late for us Dolphins fans, didn't it?

Oh, just curious to know: Does anyone forgive Nick Saban or Cam Cameron now? I want to know others thoughts on that one....

AJ, what the "experts" on tv don't understand is that MIA is a hot team going into the post season on an emotional high. I expect BAL to come down to South Fla expecting an easy win and looking ahead to playing the titans this creates a perfect opportunity for the Fins to pull out the W.

the hell with nick satan, sham cam camoron and all the snakes in the media that trashed BP when he cleaned house.

as for the mangina, he will be out of a job and last time I checked nobody wants a rat working for them, so good luck finding a job in the NFL mangina.

I'll answer your question Aaron.
Nick and Cam WHO?

word is farvre hates mangina....

*uck man-peni*. What an idiot! gotta be the worst coach.
*uck Brett Fav-rah. Selfish, pompus as*. u shake hands at the end of the game. even if that QB ended ure career after everyone thought u ended his.
*uck jets fans. U never aprrectiated Penny. EVER!!. U booed him when he got hurt. Well tonight u owe him an apology. For booing, for being classless, and for following ure usual pattern: not knowing what u have till its long gone.

Penny got his revenge against the Jets.
Now the 25 guys from last year get theres against Cam and the Joey gets his against Pittsburgh. By then we'll be on such a roll, there might, and I say might not to get ahead of myself, there might be no stopping us.

Oh, and i hope no one takes offense, cuz i was his biggest fan until this passed offseason, but *uck JT and Jay Feeley. JT wanted out and wanted to bail on us and his team. Vonnie should be who we showed allegience to. He stayed and was captain and turned this around. Where is JT? at home. U wanted out and u got out. Good riddance. as for Feeley, next time u say a team has no talent make sure they dont come in ure house, with a better rookie kicker, and whoop that as*. GO MIAMI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

im so glad nick the trick got what he deserved when florida beat that azzzz. now its time to take care of cam the shamrock stupid cameron!

good night all.
Now its time to say
"How sweet it is"

"I'm worried about the Ravens, but, somehow we keep winning"

Posted by: Marc

Thanks, Marc, for 2008's most maddening quote of the year.

As a Marshall Alumnus and a Chad Pennington fan, I was so happy to see Chad put Mangini in his place. Farve has been a Great QB. Chad is a GREAT QB, but more importantly he is a wonderful man, husband, father, (he lost his Grandfather from Oceana, WV earlier this Fall). As a Jet, he had a weekly bible study in his home for other players. As a student at Marshall, he visited kids (including my younger brother) at local hospitals on Sunday afternoons. Chad is a scholar, and wise beyond his years. He isn't perfect, but he is real! I was soooo disappointed when he lost the first game with the interception in the end zone against the Jets. Why, God why? Today, God answered me! Go Phins!

Thanks!!!

This is the best game and season you can ever imagine! Pats and Jets go home!! Dolphins are AFC East champions!!

I almost didn't remember how does it feel... It feels so good!!!

It's GGGGGGRRRRREEEEEEAAAAAAATTTTTTTT!!

Anybody hear from the cuban?lololololololol

HOW SWEEEET IT IIIIS!!! THE PRIDE IS BACK!!! This will be a season to remember already!!! We're playing with house money in the playoffs so play loose, have fun ...and let it rip!!!
"HERE WE GO DOLPHINS, HERE WE GO!!"

Where has Joey Porter been? Mando, Do you have any inside scoop? I watch Joey on every play, and for the past 5 weeks he has been lifeless. No fire, no passion. He was awful yesterday vs the Jets. We NEED Porter to show up. If not, send in Courtney Anderson!

EXCUSE ME...

Please cut the following players

Pennington
Beck

W. Allen
J. Allen


Thank you!

VERY proud of what the Phins have accomplished this year, I said if they went 8-8 it would be like winning the Super Bowl; this is like ME throwing the TD pass with 2 sec's left on the clock to win the SB, I'm in pure exctasy.

I predict we will beat the Ravens but lose in the next round, although I can only pray I'm wrong... Also BP will get the extension he is looking for and will complete the turnaround of this team, contrary to my belief's Mr. $0.01 will continue to start for Mia through the next season (hopefully getting hurt so Henne can finally take over)

Ah to dream

GRATS to the entire Miami Dolphins organization; including those that I wish were not a part of my team :)

Tough matchup ahead with Baltimore Ravens. I was at the Oct.19 game. We need to focus on football fundamentals and not turn ball over, take points when appropriate, take risks where appropriate and most importantly, tackle the first time and not give up chunks of yards by missing first tackles. that killed us in october. We can win this game and I think it would be great to enact some revenge on Cammoran for making us the joke of the league last year! Pressure the rookie QB Flacco and do not give up the big play. keep it semi conservative and own time of possession and we can win. Hell, we are all 0-0. So, 3 wins and we have just as good a shot as anyone for the Superbowl. We need to PEAK NOW! We still have not played our best football. Give it to them SPARANO!!!!

Pennington is doing a nice job. Give him a break. The Fins passed him up in the draft and got another shot at him b/c the JESTS suck. Don't forget he is the real reason for the success on the field. This was the best free agent acquisition in years. And, it has paid off. GO FINS!!!

Congrats, Phins! Thanks for a great regular season, now go make us proud of your postseason!

J-E-T-S!!! (Just Ended Their Season!!!)

GO DOLPHINS! BEAT BALTIMORE!

BillBarcell Sould Say to Russ it's Not You It's Me line From Sinefielf Tv Show or Say I'm Going To Breack Out With You ...............cramer

PARCELLS IS LIKE LAZERUS.WHERE EVER HE GOES TEAMS RISE FROM THE DEAD. THAT IS NOT TO SAY THE COACHES DIDENT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT.THEY DID BIGTIME. PLAYERS RESPOND TO RESPECT AND LEADERSHIP. IF THEY CAN BEAT THE RED HOT RAVENS THEY CAN GO ALL THE WAY. CONGRATULATIONS
