Default Phins Fans thoughts

Some quotes from Phins fans on this weeks game...

The middle of our field will be covered much better this week and our entire defense will rise to the occasion IMO.

You could make it Texans -12 and I'd still take it if I was betting.

Im not saying Johnson won't have a big game against Vontae (provided he and SS can stay on the field this week) but I don't think that Welker having a big game against us is any indication that other wr's will.

I mean you could argue Branch and Ochocinco were pretty quiet in the NE game..

The Texans offense is elite; the Patriots offense is historically great.

This first 5 games are tough, no matter how you look at it and the fears that the Texans just might improve defensively with Phillips are well founded. I think any win will be good for this team. The texans are tough, but can be beaten. I hope they take us for granted based on last week and don't expect anything from us...

Can't expect much less. In Week 2 all teams at least still have some glimmer of hope. Their fans will rise and fall with their team.

If our offense and defense and special teams play as they can, Miami is going to be in big trouble. One of the above posters said AJ is the only thing we have better than Patriots, ever hear of the NFL rushing leader? since he did not play lastr week he was evidently forgotten. I think I will put OD up against any TE in NFL this season.

Meh, I saw legitimate points in every one of those excerpts.

The one that stuck out to me the most was the "hopefully we don't expect much from them" line.

As long as the coaches prepare the team and drill into their head that this Dolphins team has what it takes to beat us if we play average, then we'll be fine.

We've gotta walk into this like it's week 1. Because in a sense, it is.

What's the spread now? 2.5?

I think the real people who know think just like those guys on that board. We've got a good team, but we haven't made a habit of winning. I'm truly worried about our boys on the road.

No crowd, no cheer leaders, no Toro..... Just Wary on the sideline.

I really believe we will get the win tomorrow. There is no excuse to lose to the dolphins tomorrow. For starters, we are 5-0 against them and i feel like tomorrow we will be 6-0. With an offense like ours and a defense like the one showed up last week, we shouldnt lose to fake teams like the dolhpins. That doesnt mean we should overlook them and underestimate them. But they should know that if they lose to a team like the dolphins tomorrow we will not be going to the playoffs. The time is over to lose to teams like the dolphins and other bad teams. I feel like our offense is just as good as the pats, and our defense should be alot better than what the pats did and the pats still held them well (except for henne's 419 yards)

I feel like we will hand the phins their 10th loss at home in the last 11 tries.

Yeah I am chugging the koolaid right now!

GO TEXANS!!!!

The Patriots don't really generate a pass rush, which even after only a handful of games under Phillips I believe we can which won't allow for Chad freakin Henne to have another career day. Their fans will also become accustomed to our stable of TE's, including Casey

Not on the same level? I think the FinFans will find out soon enough on what level they're on. Not to mention when we unfold the Swiss Army Knife.......

My feeling exactly... This was my response to them

The main difference is Schaub is not Brady so to beat the Texans they HAVE to disrupt him a lot... sack him or get a lot of pressure and maybe force a turnover... Otherwise... things will get bad.

My response to that ^^

All of the Texans backs are better than NE's not just Foster, but Tate as well... You'll see 2moro. If the Pats and Brady had the Texans weapons in that offense... things would've been worse Monday night.

We are speaking about 2011 right? They(Tom Brady) set historical and career records against the Phins in week 1 so you could cuz also argue it was the defense that was historically bad that night.

I agree that we should win today, but being 5-0 actually works against us. 1st of all, we've beaten them 5 times by a combined 14 points. 2nd of all, the law of averages is a ******. 3rd, they had a top 5 or so D last season; not gonna be a cakewalk. 4th, they really look like they've opened it up on offense and we're taking our D into it's second regular season game. We really have no idea of how good or bad they will play. I'm expecting great things, but there are our Texans...ya just never know.
I don't understand the fake team comment at all. They were sucky at home last season, but they were also very much like our Houston Texans in that they lost some heartbreakers that they very well could've and shouldve won.
Other than that, I'm having my self a nice glass of too.

Well, we don't have Tom Brady, so I don't know why we've got our knickers in a bunch because the Phins fans are saying that our TEs probably won't do the same amount of damage as the Pats's TEs did to them last week.

Alright, my bad. I still stand by my assessment though. I'd say Gronkowski is probably better than Daniels. I know we love our players, but we tend to see them through rose-colored glasses. OD is great, but he is not elite. Gronkowski is playing at an elite level, and while you might attribute that to the QB, the fact stands, he is playing at a higher level than Owen Daniels at this point.

I don't agree with the "and it's not even close" part though...

Alright, will the real buddyboy please stand up...

**************

I've been over there as well and it seemed to me like losing to NE "only" 38-24 was some kind of badge of honor. Like they worship the Pats or something. Now in their minds they play some fool team from a lesser division. I think they'll feel differently this time tomorrow.

As for me, I'm always worried.

I remember the old days of "Whew! Glad that the Colts beatdown is behind us now, we're REALLY gonna' play and bounce back next week!"

It was only like a year or so ago. If Schaub starts recognizing that LBs are waiting for the little dump-off pass to our RBs, we'll be OK. His LB recognition skills are awful. LOL. Needs more time in the simulator.

Ben Tate will grind them down. I predict play-action pass plays will target OD and AJ, a few plays to JJ that could go long and maybe even score if we get lucky.

I feel good about this.

I got this exact feeling myself.. I kept seeing... "Our defense wasn't that bad.. Brady is just that good" a lot and there where more than a few not the most knowledgable about the Texans...

The Patriots signed Haynesworth & Anderson to their front four to help their pass rush... most people would have thought that was enough.

The Dolphins Added Marc Columbo, then moved him inside. Then they added Nate Solder to the right side of their line, opposite Jake Long. And Mike Pouncey in the middle.

So who did more? Did we do enough to offset the Dolphins' moves? We'll find out.....
