    Mario Williams was in Miami's heads and backfield all game long.

    AJ would be a close second.

    the game was won on the offense and the offense was run by Schaub to practical perfection, despite the two picks

    Schaub - Sick, weak, fraile and "injury prone" but he hung in there and got his team into position to win. Gave his playmakers chances to make plays.

    Mario or Kris - they ALWAYS bring their A game. Andre would be second.

    I went with AJ because he saved Schaub's ass at least twice on magnificent plays.

    Yeah, he was a very close 2nd for me. Ultimately, his fumble edged him just a nose behind Mario for me. I can't see giving a vote to the guy who tried to give the game away at least four times just because he finally pulled out the win from his own self-imposed drama (Schaub).

    I pick Schaub. Mario, AJ, Kris Brown and a few others made big plays to help us win this game, but Matt conducted "The Drive" and won us that game.

    I hereby proclaim Matt as "The Phinisher" for his ability to come back and win against Miami.

    Dre all the way IMO. His reception on that 4th down play was clutch. Hell, if not for the fumble he was almost flawless today.

    For those picking Mario:

    The last TD by Miami was scored because Mario, the only one in position to make a play because of the defensive scheme called (which was actually the right call), whiffed an easy tackle for a loss. Otherwise, he did really well, though.

    For those picking Schaub:

    Well, you're s'posed to think with that thing in the head above your shoulders.

    picked Schaub because as bad as he was in the second, with all that pressure in his face and on the clock he got the "W". Dre had a great day, Mario had a pretty good day, but I thought Schaub did the most to help the team win (And almost lose as well).

    Best part, no 4th quarter meltdown (Although we were damned close with the no-pick and no-fumble calls).

    I just don't think there should be any question that the "Player of the game" is Johnson, unless you want to give it to Green for having 5.125 yds. per carry with only like 8 carries. Mario totally blew his chance for it on that TD....and Schaub?--I just can't see that.

    the players mentioned had big days and their own screwups. AJ took atleast 3 points off the board. let's enjoy the win and the strong performances that made it happen.
