This was the most enjoyable game I've seen since the Super Bowl!! Kicking Patriots butts all over the field. It wouldn't have mattered if Tom Brady or Johnny Unitas was back there, the Dolphins would still have killed that stinking cheating team. Too bad the league is watching Belichick closely now. If this was last year, Belichick would have stolen tapes of the Dolphins trick plays and adjusted. Who's the genius now, Belichick. Certainly not you. What a great game plan we had to outsmart those stinking Patriots. We're on the road back. Sparano and Tuna rule!!

Easy there, 408. A little truth never hurt anyone. It won't hurt you, either. I like the fact that you're a diehard. That's good. But the reality is, Joey DOES NOT play like that every game. If he did, I suspect none of us would have any problem with his talking. The truth is, however, Joey has RARELY backed it up since he's been here, although I'll grant you he was starting to come on at the end of last yr. And just b/c someone compalins about their team when they lose doesn't make them a bandwagon fan. You don't expect a true fan to be happy with losing, do you?

I, too, was one of those critics who blasted Porter for his comments. I'll stop criticizing him for running his mouth (even though I think it's unnecessary) when his on-field play consistently backs it up. I'll give him props for a great game, but I won't back off the larger criticism b/c this was just one game. If that's what it takes to get you and the team motivated, so be it. Just make sure you can walk the walk, b/c when you don't you're going to feel the heat of fan criticism, and rightly so--especially when you're being paid $20 million!

Harrison complaining about 'dirty play'? I guess it's not so enjoyable when the roles are reversed, huh, Rodney? Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! Unbelievable!
