Big Baby, the AFC west contenders hook up a lot during the final few games of the year. as of now, the 2nd and 3rd teams in the west are above the dolphins (i think). a tie would have been really bad for the locals. HUGE game vs. the ravens and we'll see if they have lost as much as you seem to think they have. a loss to baltimore would really, really hurt miami.

Big Baby, the panthers were hurt and still competitive. their coach was doing a good job w/o several key players. methinks blowing a 2-0 lead was his downfall- he did get fired after last night's match, didn't he?

Big Baby, i believe the ravens still have enough to make it a tough go for the dolphins. a win there would basically give them the tiebreaker against the AFC central (no north for me) and south. one wildcard is going to the AFC west, and with potential foe for the other spot being buffalo, unless they get contained by rex ryan's defense, a win there, even if it''s cold, and the dolphins will get the last spot. we'll see. then heat gonna get run out by your beloved celtics? why not-they stink, besides the coach. a real lack of talent other than whiteside.

Big Baby, another game almost won by a mediocre opponent. SF could have gone up 14-7 if their TE would not have dropped a ball at the miami 15. kaepernik looked pretty good; how does he fit that afro into the helmet. don't know who won last night, but one of them is 8-3. HUGE game next week vs. ravens; a win there would almost make the dolphins a playoff team. #17 looking better and better, albeit against a team that has lost 10 in a row. let's see what happens in baltimore.

YES... they defeated the steelers who lost their QB during the game, and are over .500 barely (6-5). i guess one might say they are playing well enough to win, but methinks their wins have been come-from-behind jobs against marginal teams. as stated, a HUGE game next week against the ravens, which could well be for the last wild card spot, assuming that one of the AFC west teams will get spot #5 in the postseason.

NEXT WEEK... the dolphins will play the ravens, who after today will be over .500. have the dolphins beaten anybody this season that is over .500? can't recall one. requires investigation.

HEAT GETS OVER 100 AND LOSES!!!! odd, because with the defense of the heat being decent, one of the rare times they will score 100 and they lose. bottom of the division, playing under .333- as stated previously, they need to trade for a scorer and this year they will have a lottery pick to trade, barring a complete reversal of form.

Fzb, well, castro didn't get a chance to live to trump's presidency. we'll see how the republicans treat cuba. things seem to have started up with cuba under obama, and methinks a return to the regressive policy of isolation won't do the island any good. partying hearty on calle echo, lots of banging on pots and pans, which i imagine was the only form of protest allowed back in the day. any way, you cubans got your wish- but how in the world are they gonna hold a funeral service for the bearded one a day after his ashes are spread over the caribbean?

MICHIGAN HOSED ON CALL... although i didn't think michigan had a chance, they found a passing game and should have won the game. it appeared they were a foot and a half short on the play before the game winner. credit jim harbaugh- he had his team ready to win and they should have. the apology from the pig ten will be forthcoming, but that won't leave the wolverines satisfied. it now looks like it could be alabama, ohio state, c;meson and maybe even the wolverines. the goal of USC is to win the conference title and go to the rose bowl, which is still a possibility and better than going to any of the other bowl games if washington wins and gets picked for the playoff (doubtful)).

BEST COACH IN TOWN IS... jim larranaga who doesn't get mcdonalds all americans but still manages to compete with new faces every season. ain't easy to stay competitive in the ACC going again st UNC, duke, and the rest- but he still manages to field teams that are difficult to defeat.

Jimbo, very few funnier than the three stooges. even after curly left, older brother sheep filled in quite well. took a little while to get over the loss ofd the unequaled talent of curly, but sheep was a very funny fellow in his own right.

Big Baby, in no way will michigan get into the playoff. they can't throw a pass to save themselves. the ole shadow believes the wolverines will get demolished by ohio state, for whom i have no love but can recognize their talent and coaching. is car dealer still on the team? if he were the QB in ann arbor they might have a chance. permission granted for all the citizens to rag me endlessly if the buckeyes lose, but i just don't see it happening. a very happy thanksgiving to all!!!

Big Baby, wasn't bruce arena the manager who guided the US to three straight losses in the group stage in the WC? (i think it was 98) the team lost to iran 3-1, a major embarrassment.

OC Dolphin, delightful for dolphin fans; but the ole shadow is locked into the days when that was a penalty and it still should be. i'll watch rugby on ben if i want to see that type of play, and as stated, better they mandate rugby (read pure, textbook) tackling. the dolphins beat another mediocre foe, but i'll share dave's giddiness over the win streak- it is tough enough to win one game, let alone 5 in a row. KC lost, so another wild card contender drops a notch closer to the locals. #17 is a different QB this year, owing mostly to running the ball which keeps pressure off him. he does have one of the better arms in the league and he has currently been showing it. HUGE game against the ravens coming up.

NFL LEGISLATES RUGBY IN ITS GAMES!!!!! the first dolphin TD came as a result of a scrum moving the pass catcher 5 yards to get in the end zone. i can really live without seeing these pushes by the linemen and others. if the NFL wants its games to look like rugby, then that is their business. they'd be better off mandating rugby tackles instead of scrums.

DOLPHINS IN THE COLISEUM!!! cannot have played there too many timed since the first redskin SB. the rams are set to move to a stadium on the grounds of what used to be hollywood park, a real nasty neighborhood in inglewood. makes the area around the coliseum look like golden beach. century and centinela- OY VEY!!!!

Big Baby, what defines a recreational drug? "geez, i think i'll swallow 10 oxycontin and go play a round of golf"!! i don't think people swallow opioids by the dozen to sit down and listen to "who's next".

(the real) david in los angeles, after their horrible start, 9-7 would be a very decent record. methinks i was one of the 10-6 prognosticators. has tonsil been called for a holding this year? i can't recall one. he was gonna be the top pick until he strapped that gas mask on. i would vote for him for ROY. a guy steps into the offensive line na d gets shuffled about while retaining his prowess at either T or G is something cowrite home about. and as far as #17 goes, as long as jay ajayi and friends are running all over the field, tannehill is gonna be very effective. if this was supposed to be the crucial year, he is passing with flying colors. the guy got knocked around pretty good in his first four seasons , now that (run) play faking means something and he is being rolled out, in my unhumble opinion, he has been one of the better QBs in the league.

Big Baby, even clint dempsey wouldn't have helped the USA tonight; the defenders that the USA fielded looked like it was their first time playing the game. joel campbell going past and through that statue named brooks was an embarrassment, and that was just one of the four goals that "los ticos" scored against a totally wretched US team. they have a long winter break, and dumping the coach might be in order. no points and a 5 goal differential might mean a trip to tasmania, the way el tri qualified for the last world cup. the color commentator on bein ripping the players and coach, but tonight was mostly a case of the players being lost in space- a lot of space. then avengers with diana rigg are delightful!! nitey night.

Señor Woodcock, the ole shadow enjoys the back and forth with fellow futbol aficionado the Big Baby. i guess you can watch the great college basketball games that are on. kentucky looks to be primed for a great season, and duke/kentucky should be a decent match. i really admire bill self, and think they stated that kentucky is going for 13th consecutive conference crown, a feat only accomplished by the bruins of wooden and barrow and gary cunningham. of course it helps when you have the dominant player in the game, and KAJ>sidney wicks>bill walton>marques johnson is quite a parlay.

Big Baby, was watching an episode of "the avengers"- the totally fascinating diana rigg shows- while CR was dominating the first half play, but did get back to the game to see "los tacos' get a tremendous goal off some real bad play by the gringos. CR deserves to be in front and they are. a loss would not be fatal, but no points from two games is not conducive to gaining a spot. el tri is on telemendo-here channel 51- and methinks they are scoreless after the first half. will continue to watch the gringos and take quick glances at mexico/panama.
