Victory leading into the bye is HUGE

My column in the Miami Herald today deals with the topic of defining this season. I write Monday night's game against the Patriots will tell us if the Dolphins will be contenders in the AFC East the rest of the season or just the team that watches the Patriots and Jets duke it out.

Why?

Read the column because it outlines the situation clearly.

The column also outlines how players feel about the importance of winning the game before the bye weekend.

If you win this game things are great in Dolphinsland for the next two weeks.

"Well it makes it easier; practices are easier, the week may be a little shorter so it definitely helps to go into the bye week with some momentum," wide receiver Brandon Marshall said.

A loss on the week before a bye ... Not good.

"Yeah, I mean you definitely have a sour taste in your mouth for one long week and you definitely want to get out on the field if you lose," quarterback Chad Henne said. "So, going into this bye-week we want to win. Last year we played the Jets and we won that game. We went in and had a little extra time to go against New Orleans. So, getting on this winning page and having success is important … This is the most important game, I mean there’s no doubt about it. If we lose this game we’re setting ourselves back in the division. So, this is a must, you know. We got to come out, trying to win this game."

Bills are badder than the wagon they burned out on. Pathetic showing, i think cam camoron may have some company this year!!!Or maybe The city of the Wineless Detroit Lions for that matter!!!

Tampa Bay lost 26 in a row from 1976 - 1977.

Why would Tortured want N.E. to win?
They are the division champs for a reason.
Look for N.E. to steal the Jets lunch and bang their little sisters before the season is over.

For you jet scum.
I'm reminded of a line from Star Wars: You'll never see a more wretched hive of scum and villiany.

No problem redsky. I hate the ground jet scum walks on. Nough said?

ALoco, he met all 25 of them.

A blog post to promote the column.
Sweet.

Jets all day- have fun with the patsies tomorrow. Remember its not the wildcat, its the seminole

Mark Sanchez > Chad Henne

The Jets are not full of scum, you floridians are jealous of NY. Your jeaous you not up and coming. You know the Jets time is soon. The Jets have a few douche bags, but your teams rap sheet is waaaaaay longer. You teams a bunch of drunks, at least we only have braylon. The Brandon Marshall hissy fit alarm is ticking ladies.

Rednecks in the south have always been jealous of the northeast corner i guess

Hey guys email Brett Farve...he wants opinions on who to throw to on Monday since he has no recievers and Revis is going to play. DOnt forget Pace(insane pass rush on the way) and Santonio Holmes.....our offense is going to explode all over someone

ALoco- Check out Pet Sounds by the Beach Boys. A very under rated album, Brian Wilson was a musical genius that went crazy. This is his best work as a Beach Boy.

Its the fins, in needs of wins where do I begin, its a sin your tough like tin or aluminum, the Jets defense runnin you werent foolin um. Chad Henne prepare to meet your maker, cause David Harris is the grim reaper life taker. Pen to Paper Sanchez to Keller, Jason Allen blind like Helen Keller. Its Braylon E doin the dougie, I ryhme so ill only Armando can unplug me....

Haha! Good show. They have to maul those tightends, otherwise forget it. By the way, the Jets have a very good offensive line and a wily coach; no shame in losing to them.

PS Mark Sanchez STILL HASNT THROW AN INTERCEPTION

Fageman is in th e house.

Parcels knew where things are heading with this sad sack bunch so he was wise to get out of dodge. Dave W, Saban, Cameron, Sparano, NEXT?

Maybe send Ireland up to NY to learn how to draft. Poor Bill probably just threw his hands up in the air after the White / Turner fiasco. Hey how's Gibril WIlson working out for you guys?

This is going to be a blowout of epic proportions for the Pats. The nation will now know after two weeks of the rotting fish on prime time television that they are frauds.

What's up with all these gay Jets fans on here?

Vonte is gonna have to have a great night and home's fav (S.S) is gonna have to step up BIG cause we got nobody else.Paul s,randy s and lankford are gonna have to be in the backfield.Dansbe will be great and wake has to know when to rush the QB and when to look run and get off the block.

When I think that we have to play against Wes Welker tonight, I just throw up in my mouth a little bit. He was the best player on the Dolphins team and was traded to the enemy by utter complete stinkin, reeking, morons. I won't say Cameron and Mueller by name.

LMAO,JETS FANS ARE THE REASON COUSINS SHOULD'NT F..CK!

OK, huge game. As Mando quite correctly stated. We win and we are on equal footing as everyone else. We lose and we are playing catch up the rest of the way.

COME ON DOLPHINS!

By the way, hedging my bets on the US equities a bit more today. Selling my PX holding for a modest 3% gain and shorting MDT. Let's see how it goes over the next month.
