    Pats fans are overlooking Miami

    All I hear about is Indy, the Jets and every other team in-between.
    Folks - Miami is for real; they remind me a bit of the 2001 pats. In that, they have a young QB (from Michigan) who is SLOWLY transitioning from managing and not losing games, to, showing more of an ability to drive the ball down the field when it counts the most. They have a young talented defense with a couple of veterans mixed in that gets better as the season progresses. A cold hearted head coach that motivates thru fear and always has his team prepared.
    The bottom line here is that if the pats lose in NO and Miami wins in Buffalo; it sets up a showdown for the outright division lead. With both teams tied at any point in the season, the Dolphins will hold the tiebreaker by virtue of a better divisional record.

    First off,  I wouldnt go and start comparing the 2001 Pats to the 2009 Phins.

    Second, No one is overlooking Miami.  We are all fans on this discussion board and some people bring up ridicoulous topics and some bring up good topics.  But we have no control on how this team prepares each week for its opponents.

    So we can talk all we want about this team or that team, but in REALITY BB and his staff gets the players ready.  They dont look to us for advice.

    Hannah, Baby: there is no motivation through fear, only anger. That said, I am not worried about Miami, we are better each week, we have all ready been down the Miami road and will not have a problem here in Miami.

    Lets get to NO than worry about Miami

    I'm certainly not overlooking Miami but this Saints game is huge from a Hype standpoint and it is also sort of measuring stick again for the future much like the Colts. My attention span isn't broad enough to let me get past the Aints right now.

    no one is overlooking MIA. the thing is, NO is on the list next, so that is who we have to look at now.  to look at MIA would be overlooking NO which would be a mistake.  and we don't have to worry about MIA catching the Pats if the Pats handle their business.

         Surely you jest. Though I agree with you that the Dolphins are a tough, well coached, gritty team, they have no where near the talent and the fire-power of teams like the Colts, Pats, Vikings, and Saints.

         A "showdown for the division lead"??? If the Pats can't beat out the Dolphins in the AFC East, they have no business even discussing a SB birth.

    Umm, I, first and only really, am a fan. I don't play. I don't need to focus on this week's opponent or next year's schedule. I have the luxury of overlooking any team that I want to. I tend not to because I think each team can give any other team a headache, but I have found it doesn't really matter if I am taking a team for granted or not. The Pats will still play them on Sunday and I will watch. 

    My main focus is to ensure I have a decent selection of food and beverages for the game. Oh, and to know what time the game is. And, as I live in an area that doesn't show all the games, I should check to see if the game is on TV. That is it. My checklist for preparation. 100% successful.

    Re: Pats fans are overlooking Miami

    If we have to worry about the Pats losing the division to Miami, then this team has some serious far-reaching issues.

    The Pats are better than Miami.

    The Pats should win their division. If they can't, then the BB needs to find the reasons and make the appropriate changes that must be made.

    Re: Pats fans are overlooking Miami

    You mean the same Miami that lost their best running back and the key to the wildcat offense that used to give the Pats fits for the year? 

    Let's get clear: Miami may make the playoffs but they have no shot of winning the Super Bowl first. Write it down - no shot. 

    So it's easy to push Miami aside because the assumption is that the Pats will beat Miami. If the Pats lose to Miami they deserve to be a pretender this year and not a contender. That said, once the Saints game is over everyone will be focusing on the Miami game. Right now a battle looms with an undefeated team so that's what needs to be talked about right now. Miami itself should be thinking about the Bills - while not a great team, if the Bills beat them, the "showdown" with the Pats won't mean that much. 

    I personally think the Colts are scarier than the Saints but we'll find out soon about enough about that. I tend to disrespect NFC teams but if the Saints spank the Pats I'll obviously think different.
