Default Patriots/Miami

Miami is a desperate team. If they don't win today then can just about forget it. Therefore I'm not taking them lightly and I highly doubt the Patriots are either.

I'll be watching the game with my mother, age 94, who loves nothing more then to watch the Patriots.

I would say that Harrington has more chance of beating the Patriots than Culpepper does.

What happened to the field between the hashmarks?

Even Heinz Field does not look that bad until November - these teams in the Northeast and Midwest really need to go to some sort of artificial turf.

Well, a tight ugly game all in all.

The D took some punishment through the air early on, but tightened up really well second half - at the half it looked as if Harrington would easily pass for 350 yards.

The run game was effective at chewing up the clock - Maroney got plenty of carries but couldnt break down a good Miami run D.

Corey was effective running the ball - not too sure why he didnt get more carries.

We made the plays/turnovers we had to and were very clutch on 4th downs.

I'll take 4-1 going into the bye.

Part of the problem is that the Revolution, MLS, plays on that field also.

I'm not surprised we couldn't run that well against Miami. Completely different defense then Cincinnati. Cincinnati's D has no speed up front.

I'm not sure what they're doing with Corey. I don't know if maybe he isn't 100% so they're using him sparingly, or what.

way to go out on a limb there with an injured culpepper.

you mean harrington has less of a chance of losing, right? i will say it again:

harringtons in for culpepper so miami cant win even if the pats lay down.



(culpepper is an experienced pro bowl qb with playoff experience. harrington is not. a healthy pep has the better shot to win.)

Dont get too bogged down in semantics, Tony.

Surely Harrington having more of a chance of winning is the same as Harrington having less chance of losing?

From what I have seen this season Culpepper does not resemble anything close to a Pro-bowl level QB - sure he has had the odd good season but will he ever reach that level again?

Doubtful I would say.

I guess this was one of the wins you chalked down for us leading to our 8-8 - as opposed to the Bengals victory which you obviously didn't.

if you have this pinned up in your proverbial "locker room", i think you can atleast get it right. 10-6. (i just said the pats can win the division going 8-8- i expect you to start arguing this point in about 1 minute.) i did give the pats a win against the bengals if it was a. wright starting, and was pretty much a toss up with pep stealing one of 2.

nice try though!

anyways, once again, i was right. the pats couldnt lose this game if they laid down. (or didnt have a deep threat at wr) harrington simply couldnt get it done. i knew this. you have watched some detroit football the past few years havent you?
