Some Dolphins think Pats just another team

There seems to be an interesting debate among some Dolphins players as to what kind of team exactly they wil play Sunday when the New England Patriots come to town.

The Patriots, you may know, have won three Super Bowls this millineum while playing in the game another two times. They're .670 winning percentage (including the postseason) is the best in the league since 1994. They've won every AFC East division title since 2001 except for 2002 and 2008.

And this year, New England is leading the division, leading the NFL in points per game, and they have a future Hall of Fame quarterback named Tom Brady.

So how do some Dolphins react to this resume?

"They're just another team," quarterback Ryan Tannehill said today. "They're a really good team. They've won a lot of games this year. But it's not something that affects us."

That is not a singular opinion. Middle linebacker Karlos Dansby agrees the Patriots are a good team. But does he think their reputation allows them a certain degree of prestige?

"No," he said.

Why not?

"Why?" he answered.

"A lot of teams have been among the elite," Dansby said. "Everybody has prestige behind their organization. What makes them different than anybody else?

"Every team in the AFC East has prestige behind them -- even the Buffalo Bills. [Sheesh], they went to the Super Bowl four times in a row and didn't win it. So playing them is just like playing the New England Patriots."

If confidence is something you admire, then you're in heaven right now. By the same token, if giving the opponent something to fume about is a problem for you, then this also fits the bill. My take is that true or not, whether they are just another team or not, the Patriots will turn this into an internal topic of discussion.

But leave it to ripe and wise veteran running back Reggie Bush to want no part of the conversation. He clearly disagrees with Tannehill and Dansby.

"No, I don't think they're just another team," Bush said. "They've kind of been at the top for a while now. The body of work they've put out, the foundation they've laid out kind of speaks to their organization, to their program, to the character of players they got over there. So I have nothing but respect for those guys over there."

"Troll Warning"

If this doesn't take the Troll Cake I don't know what does. YG-The biggest Troll here-pretends he's LOL so he can repost his old post on this new blog.

Sheesh if you want to repost something just do it. You don't have to troll and impostor to do so. Talking to yourself as LOL is dumber than all your posts put together and thats pretty dumb.

YG will try and deny he is LOL above. But think about it, when have you EVER seen YG completely ignore a poster(LOL below)when that poster has agreed or disagreed with YG. I know the answer......NEVER.

Heck YG even starts fights with people and even attacks them just for AGREEING with him. Of course it's usually because of his comprehension skills, or lack thereof, because he has no clue what others are saying. But thats ANOTHER story.

Seems all we've been doing the last 5yrs is refixing positions we thought were previously fixed. 1 step forward and two steps backwards.

This all makes sense if you have a 10yr rebuilding plan. But 10yr rebuilding plans dont make much sense either. Right guys?

Isn't this why the overwhelming majority of phin fans are sick or Ireland? Do you realize what you just wrote is just cause to dismiss Ireland?

Only the homers want to keep him. The rest of us know he is incapable. Doubling up draft picks, as this team has done, because they wanted to hit on at least 1 has wasted draft picks & stalled our rebuild.

Good Gm's don't have to double dip positions to find 1 guy.

I definitely give Tannehill a pass because he's a rookie. But Im sure a Pat pass rusher will remind Tannehill of this statement when he's lying on his back.

As for Dansby, this is exactly why if we could part ways with him, I would be all for it. Armando, why do you continuosly allow Dansby to make fool of himself by placing the mic in front of his face.

Did Dansby also remind you guys that he's the best lb in all of pro football too?

Like I said, next time just repost it and move on. No need for the stupid fake names and talking to yourself. Sheesh, it just makes you look dumber than we already know you are.

Oh yeah,,,,,,,,,,,,LOL.

Not true, punk loser. If you have no life, it's not my fault. LOL.

Rolando McClain is available

Culpepp available. Maybe give us some leadership and a spark.

Dolphins have the worst attendance in the NFL? Hardly surprising since Ross/Ireland ruined this once proud franchise. Cant blame the fans that are tired of wasting their money. The FO doesnt even try to win getting rid of their best players on a regular basis and keeping incompetent losers way too long.

Will people finally stop saying 'this once proud franchise'.

It's old.

It's repetitive.

Ancient friggen history.

I love Bush. Reggie too!

Thanks biggs!

T Rex,

I'm pretty sure you cant tell people what to say. LOL

Both Luck and RG3 have way more experience than Tannehill. Had it been any other draft, Tannehill would be drawing rave reviews. Give him two or three years and he will be a top 5 QB in this league.

Razon, you spewed the exact same nonsense about Henne. How'd that work out for ya?

Not I chump. I was never a Henne fan. Move along.

Henne doing quite well in Jax though. Not the guy I want, but he can play given a few weapons, which he never had jack squat.

Henne > Tannehill

cat poo > I think so

Cows have quite a nice hole to pound.

If the Dullfins ever go 8-8 they'll throw a parade. HAHA

let's face it. anyone who blogs here has no life. none.

Bro, you blitz Brady you better make d-mn sure you get to him. Otherwise, he'll crucify you.

It is of common knowledge that Men of the countryside use animals to relieve themselves sexually.

oscar, you are cuban no? what is it like to fork an anmial from behind? do you close your eyes and pretende its Angelinga Jolie?

It is also common knowledge that Maidens, at least in Tropical Countrysides, use big plantains to relieve themselves sexually.

I'm strictly Urban, Renton. Always have been.

They used Chickens(hens), too. After they finished, they just threw them away.

i knew a woman that trained her doberman to lick her. pretty weird, but she dug it.

Well...you can see anything. Back to Football. You seldom blitz Brady. You straight rush him, preferably thru the Middle.

Cut Dansby!!

The Fins DID NOT PUT IN A CLAIM FOR BABIN!!

ONLY 3 TEAMS DID!!

WHO IS SURPRISED!! THE FINS DIDN'T TOUCH! THAT SCUMBAG!!

-------------------------------------------------------

TO REPEAT FOR THE 1000TH TIME!!

THE D-Line is Not the Problem!! IT IS THE STRENGTH OF THE DEFENSE!!! IT IS THE ONE POSITION ON THE TEAM!! THAT HAS STARTERS AND DEPTH!!

NO STARTERS OR DEPTH AT LB!! JUST SOME OVERPAID SISSY!!!

AND THE LITTLE DEPTH WE HAD IN THE SECONDARY IS ALREADY USED UP!! AND THE STARTERS SUCK!! They're STILL BETTER THAN THE 3 STOOGES WE HAVE AT LB'S!

Would Say Go after McClain!! But McClain Doesn't Fit! What the Fins Are Building!!

This is the Roster for The Rest of The Year!

EXPECT CHANGES IN THE OFFSEASON!!
-------------------------------------------------------

On What T-Hill Said THAT WAS NOTHING!!

NOW DANSBY!! THE CLOWN NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE ME!! The Guy is Running His Mouth!! Like He has OUTPLAYED BRADY!! AND THE PATS!! WHEN THEY PLAY!!!

That EGREGIOUS IGNORAMUS of a MLB!! Has No Common Sense!!

-------------------------------------------------------

And Brady and Henne IS NOT THE MOST PASSING YARDS IN A NFL GAME COMBINED!!

MOST OFFENSE Maybe!! PASSING GAME NO!! Stafford Vs Flynn!

AND JUST CAUSE Henne and Brady threw For Yards Doesn't Mean the Game Was Exciting!!!

REMEMBER THE GAME BETWEEN BLEDSOE AND MARINO!! IN 94!! Marino Coming Back From Injury!!

That WAS A REAL PERFORMACE BETWEEN 2 FUTURE HOF!! NOT THAT BRADY VS SCRUB GAME LAST YEAR!!

READ A REAL LINE OF A EXCITING SHOOTOUT!!

Bledsoe!!
32 of 51 passes for 421 yards, and 4 touchdowns!

Marino
23 of 42 passes for 473 yards (330 in the second half) and 5 touchdowns!!

894 YARDS COMBINED AND 9 TD's!! WHAT A GAME!!

Not 930 Yards And 6 TD's! Only 2 By Henne!!

LOVE HOW U MAKE IGNORANT STRAWMAN ARGUMENTS!! TO TRY AND MAKE HENNE LOOK GOOD!!

AND ELIMINATE!! THAT BOGUS 99 YARD TD!!

U have 831 yds and 6 TD's!!

NOTHING SPECTACULAR!!! NOT NO 9 TD's!!

It is also of common knowledge that Dashi es medio mar-con.

Who's Spit? And Who's Swallow??

Cause WE ALL KNOW!! DASHI'S NAME IS ALWAYS IN UR MOUTH!!!

Posted by: Dashi | November 25, 2012 at 09:24 PM

Dashi is flaming for sure. I just don't know if he knows it yet.

Sundays Upset- miami 27 pats 23

And, is common knowledge also that you don't leave the middle of the Field open against Brady and Welker.

(very shocking Blog, very shocking Blog), Some might say.

Arent both Moore and Henne rated higher then Tannehill?

I don't know.

Oscar still mad over the bike comment?

Be Easy Lance.

U just Sound Angry! Give it a Break!!

It's not that Serious.

I need no performance enhancing drugs. I'm Exceptional.

oh boy after those comments now ill change my 52-17 to 63-10 pats

Posted by: bill connors | November 28, 2012 at 04:08 PM

While you're at it, try changing your Depends.

Your stankin up the whole wing.

Now, Brady is an exceptional QB. So is BB as a Coach(we is buttering Them besides being the Truth).

Do you see now how the Truth can work in your favor? Just most People are not used to It.

IT HAS RUN ITS COURSE.

Before the season started, I said the Dolphins would go 9-7 and everybody laughed. I was ridiculed on this very blog. I still stand by that 9-7. Hey, it could happen.

I'd love to see the Fins shock the NFL and beat the Pats. They aren't invincible! They can be beaten! I just hope we have the players to do it with...

GO FINS!!!

Well, Tracy, LV had it more or less 8-8. One more win and its 9-7. Don't see why not.

Did y'all forget about a guy named Matt Cassell. Took over in 2008 our last decent year. He played very well for NE that year and beat a lot of teams. 10-6 or 11-5. We snuck in because the Jets sucked.
So if we think NE is one dimensional, think again. They have a pretty decent qb backup.
If you want to beat NE, you have to bore them to death. Work on them. Lots of little running plays and passing plays. Don't show them up. Just tackle hard and get up with no emotion. No mouthing off. Just play. Because if you wake up that beast, it is going to be a long day.

I'm not sure that the G-Men bored NE to death, kindry.

Yesterdays gone 4 ever is one of the biggest MORONS that has ever posted on here always running his mouth with garbage. What's the difference between playing the Patriots and playing someone like the Packers serious question?

Posted by: jordan | November 28, 2012 at 04:34 PM

Don't you mean Moron Troll?

These panty wastes are letting their fearless leader tell them how to think. They pay no attention to the context of Tannehill's statement. He was asked if he prepares or looks at the Patriots in certain way when getting ready to play them.

Tannehill simply said, it's just another game.

But don't tell that to these knee jerk panty waste wanna bes-LOL.

Way to ignorant for that.

we are nothing until we beat the patriots

Brady's starting to look like Marino with all that robot gear protecting his knees, but unlike Marino Brady is not declining and is a winner in the playoffs.
Posted by: The Score | November 28, 2012 at 04:49 PM
==========================
Brady is 5 - 5 in his last 10 play off games Marino was also .500 in the playoffs you sound CLUELESS and EXTREMELY dumb without any knowledge of the NFL get a grip

Posted by: jordan | November 28, 2012 at 04:52 PM

BHWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

Jordan, you stupid f*ck, Brady has *won* 3 super bowls and almost won 2 more.
Marion won zero super bowls.
Just your childish mouth and do your homework, 14 year old.

Posted by: The Score | November 28, 2012 at 04:57 PM

Wow, we see Jordan has a bigger mangina than Mark by a factor of 10,000,000. I simply point out that Brady is a winner and Marino is not and he completely flips his widdle wid.

Posted by: The Score | November 28, 2012 at 04:57 PM

Thats funny score to the rest of us it looks like he CORRECTED you and put you in your place.

Backing away from your original ignorant statement are we?

I don't blame you Dough Boy, it was pretty fcking dumb - LOL.


Are People fukkked up here or what? I know.

We know you're looking at all this. There are MANY People like me who, until now, had no chance to express themselves. Now, they can, when and if they want. You have NO chance. Change. Quickly. Now. GN.

Are People fukkked up here or what? I know.

Posted by: oscar canosa | November 29, 2012 at 02:51 AM

You should know, your the most fcked up.

You little boy puffer-lol.

Can dish it but he can't take it.

Unless he's bent over of course - LOL.

Wow Mando, nothing else to write about, huh? I seriously doubt the Patriots are fuming over those comments, if they even need it as part of their preparation. So you think if the Dolphins lose by 30+ somehow those comments will have made the difference?

bond,david bond, did you have a head injury, or just naturally stupid.
