I want them to go into NE and just put the beat down on those arrogant SOB's and then maybe the Phins will start to gain some respect around the league.

I don't care how bad NE looked last week. This will be a test that we must pass. I want it to be like the wildcat game when the fans were leaving before halftime.

I personally don't give a flying fart about "respect," I want Wins. A great way to get a win is for the opponent NOT to respect you and you catch them collectively off guard. Leave Respect to the late, great Aretha Franklin. I'll take the victory over an opponent who doesn't respect us, and hence won't know what hit 'em.


And along those lines, I had what a wise man once called a 'radio accident' this morning. Car's radio was tuned into the sports station that had the Red Sox game on last night...when I started the car this morning I was treated to Tom Brady on the same sports station expl...well, whining, about why they lost to Detroit and what they need to do to win next. Brady gave Jax and Detroit ZERO credit for those wins. Said the Pats simply need to execute their own game plan properly and they will win against anyone. In other words, Brady had and still has no respect for his opponent. He still thinks they just did a couple things wrong and once they correct that they will run the table.

You are right. They are arrogant SOBs.

LOL: Just to clarify to anyone who might have misunderstood my ramblings..the Accident was tuning into a broadcast about the Patriots. Which did not result in any other type of 'accident'

Yeah minor.

Im not going to stand here and say Tannehill this , or Tannehill not. We are 3-0 becuase of a killer special teams(especially the punter), great defense , and yes Tannehill, frank Gore, little Grant , and Albert Wilson as well as the whole Oline.

Tannys far from perfect, but like I said , we needed the others around him to play better in orfer to be successful.thats happening.

Next year we get a roof and despite the shade.......a lot more sunshine blown up our asses!!!!

Maybe I'm wrong about this, but historically, aren't the Jets the biggest enemy of the Miami?

Followed by the NE & the Bills

The bills were so good in the 90s that i developed hatred for them and the jets always gave us a hard time because they always matched well against us. Even when they stunk against everybody else

New England is my 3rd most hated team...But I dispise brady though.

The only good thing about being a sports fan in New England these days is, the Red Sox have won their division and are heading to the post season. That is distracting a lot of people from talking about the Pats (the fact that the Pats currently have a losing record is welcoming the distractions, of course).

Your perspective on this issue is somewhat different than us South Floridans who have to put up with loud, obnoxious, rude New York tourists for five months of the year and the Jets fans in particular. Those five months encompass the football season, when they are at their worst. And, since we need their tourist dollars, we are basically at their mercy. And they know it, and do their level best to make that time miserable for us. And, yes, most of them do it on purpose- the very few that don't are just naturally New York City rude. Jets fans at our home games- well, you'd have to sit in the stands to believe it. Rude and nasty beyond belief, win or lose.
Whatever goodwill was generated by the Namath win has dissipated here a long time ago.

I think that a BIG part of that is that Florida is made up of retired New Yorkers like Jerry Seinfeld's parents. LOL.

That, and Snowbirds (those who live half the year in New Yawk, and the other half in Flahrida). Make that half a year plus one day, allowing them to claim residency in FL. During their time in S FL, they spend their efforts trying to everything it "like it is in New Yawk" to which I always responded "if it's so great there...." you know the rest.

Yes, I too recall many games with the Orange Bowl filled with Jets Fans. It was horrible, after our championship years when we didn't win as often. In fact I had a flashback at the beginning of the Jets game recently, seeing Sam Darnold wearing Richard Todd's old number. Todd wasn't even a great quarterback overall, but he was at his best against the Dolphpins and gave us fits.

Anyway, yes indeed I understand the disdain for the obnoxious Jets fans (lest I be redundant). I lived it myself. It is valid and justified.

You really should come back to visit sometime. It's changed, a bunch, since those days. Accents have shifted and diminished somewhat but they're still around.

The one thing i cant believe, is how well this defense is playing without SUH. I was convinced that would leave us really vulnerable. We seem to be playing better without him.thumbs up

Next year we get a roof and despite the shade.......a lot more sunshine blown up our asses!!!!

Not really. Once the ex-New Yorkers (and nowadays there are MANY young ones) move here, they become Floridians surprisingly fast, and therefore targets for the touristas. Those people just see anybody that lives here as just more fodder for their rudeness. And, there are more of them every year.

Really? Well, I may be flawed in my memories, but I LOVED Richard Todd! I thought he was the most generous Jets QB ever. I remember that the game in which Bill Judson got his first start, Todd picked on him all game with no success, and Judson got him for two picks in an away victory. I seem to recall Todd did that sort of thing a few times, too. If I'm wrong, please don't tell me, just leave me with my illusions. Thanks, appreciate it.

Well, the WAY they talk is annoying, I grant you, but the real problem is that they talk too much.
