Week Nine Morning Aftermath: Patriots 27, Dolphins 17

The biggest irony in the wake of New England’s win over the Dolphins, one year after Miami unleashed a Wildcat surprise on the Pats, is that the home team found even more motivation in the pregame popping off by linebacker Joey Porter.

If any team knows the power of big talk, it’s the Dolphins, whose two wins over the Jets surely were fueled in large part by the decision of coach Rex Ryan and multiple players to run their mouths repeatedly.

And so it’s fitting, we suppose, that the Pats took down the Dolphins, and that Porter made no contribution to the effort.

It wasn’t easy.  A ten-minute drive, with eight of the 16 snaps coming from the Wildcat formation, helped the Dolphins take a one-point lead late in the third quarter.

But then, Randy Moss stepped up.  In the first half, his one-handed grab near the goal line set up a touchdown.  In the second half, his 71-yard catch and run on a crossing pattern with a beautiful stiff arm and an even more impressive ability to keep his feet after Vontae Davis dove at them conjured memories of this play from Randy’s Marshall days, which featured not only a stiff arm but a hurdle.

The play allowed Moss to match T.O. with 140 career receiving touchdowns.  And that’s sure to make Terrell Owens even happier about his current circumstances.

The victory moved the Pats to 6-2, with big tests coming up at Indy, against the Jets, and at New Orleans.  Win the next three, and the Patriots will be able to legitimately claim that, once again, they’re the best team in the NFL.

For the Dolphins, the window is closing.  But there’s still hope.  If they win the next three (Tampa, at Carolina, at Buffalo), the Fins could move to 7-5 by beating the Pats in the rematch.  It wouldn’t nail down a second straight playoff berth, but it would move them closer to getting back to the postseason again, only two years after a horrendous 1-15 record.

  1. thehoodedone – your 20 “MEOW” posts are stupid.
    Patriots were the better team & deserved to win. Miami can only compensate for their serious lack of talent offensively for so long. rookie qb getting little help from his receivers who are constantly dropping balls doesn’t help. For some reason, Ginn’s returning kicks for TD’s last week proves he can get into the WR rotation again, and he rewards us by dropping a first-down catch on the final drive. Ginn has no business being on the field unless it is for KR duty.
    Pats are a better team and should win the AFCE this year. Congrats to them.
    and yes, we know porter sucks. tell us something we don’t know.

  2. Porter is all bark, no bite. He needs to make up for his ineffectiveness on the field by acting like a jackass off it.

  3. Wild kitty got a beat down.
    Seriously, though, if you are a football fan at any level, you have to be amazed by that catch by Randy Moss. That’s going on his career highlight film.

  4. i’ll add that the dolphins probably don’t really have playoff hopes at this point.
    the team is still rebuilding, but you have to admit that the fact they’ve been in every game this year, and at one point led in the box score in all but one game this year shows they can at least be competitive. The Colts, Saints, and Patriots – the Dolphins carried to the 4th quarter. i’m happy enough with that.
    hopefully next year we get some linebackers/pass rushers, and most importantly, some WIDE RECEIVERS.

  5. Why the Dokphins try to cover Moss one on one is beyond me. They certainly didn’t stop Welker or Watson with the extra DB.
    Brady’s comments are just his way of getting back at Porter without BB getting bent out of shape.

  6. That would be the third quarter that the Fins tied the game taking 10 minutes off the clock. Only to watch the Pats strike back with less than two minutes on the drive.
    The Wildcat was effective at times, but not enough to take down the Pats this time.
    Now it’s off to the Colts to see if the Pats can take down one of the two unbeaten teams.
    Looks to be a shoot out…

  7. Don’t worry Florio, in 3 weeks after the Patriots knock off the Colts, Jets & Saints you as well of the rest of the football nation will come to realize something that Patriot nation already knows…the Patriots already are the best team in the NFL…..

  8. *searches in vain for the snide recantation of every mistake Brady and Henne have ever made in you analysis. I guess you just reserve that for Romo tho, don’t you Mike?

  9. And Porter sneaks out of the dressing room without talking to reporters… classy.
    I’m sure there’ll be lots of complaints about the refs, and other excuses.
    Porter is a part time player. No sacks, no hurries, no tackles. Sebastien Vollmer.. just learned how to play football three years ago beat this guy like an old rag doll.
    Joey’s got his $$ though.
    Put him in the T.O., Chad category. All mouth.

  10. Mama P: Hello…911, My son Joey seems to be missing.
    911: M’aam, how old is little Joey?
    Mama P: Oh, he is not a little boy, he just likes to be called Joey.
    911: Oh, o.k.. Can you describe Joey to me M’aam?
    Mama P: Yes. He has a head shaped like a boot. Most of the bulk of his head is built around his fat mouth. Oh that Joey, he isn’t too smart, but he loves to run that mouth!
    911: When was the last time you saw Joey M’aam?
    Mama P: Well, he plays for the Dolphins, and I think that he was supposed to play against the Patriots on Sunday. That’s what he kept running his mouth about anyway…
    911: Hold on one second M’aam. (short silence on the line) Uh, M’aam, I just checked the box score from the Dolphins-Patriots game, and it doesn’t appear that Joey played in that game.
    Mama P: Oh Dear! I am worried. He sounded a little scared about something when I talked to him on Saturday night.
    911: M’aam, all I can do is keep checking the box scores, if he shows up this year I will get back in touch with you.

    Win the next three, Florio? Are you cereal???
    This is a Patriots team that has had serious difficulties separating themselves in games against middle of the road teams such as Miami (27-17), Baltimore (27-21), Jets (9-16) and Buffalo (25-24).
    They lost to the only top tier team they played, Denver. The best win on their resume is a 26-10 victory over a middle of the road Falcons team.
    In the AFC I have the Colts, Steelers and Bengals all ranked above this Patriots team. This Pats team is on the Broncos-Chargers level.
    The trading of Richard Seymour to Oakland has and will be proven to be very costly this year…

    And how is winning by 10 points barely, again you are a DUMBASS!!
    Are you going to take me to school with more of that 5th grade humor?
    When you talk shit to the cowboys fans(wait you called them cowgirls) do you use the “Romo is a homo”?

  13. j0ey p0rter
    Asswipe,screen name matches your knowledge, nobody cares how you rank teams.
    Trading of Seymour was a smart move for the future of the organization since he was not going to be resigned after this season.
    The Patriots continue to retool their team to continue their success for years to come.
    Dolfan 565 what are you trying to say?? Yes the Dolphins took the lead in the 3rd quarter, only for three plays later the Patriots scored and took the lead to win the game.Is that your moral victory? Your team LOST, today you win the award for most stupid posts.

  14. First off, I’d have to say that I’d place the Colts above the Pats as far as “power rankings” are concerned.
    That said lets apply the Colts to the same “serious-difficulties-seperating-themselves-from-middle-of-the-road-teams-argument”
    JAC 12 @ IND 14
    IND 27 @ MIA 23
    IND 31 @ TEN 9 – (quality win.. but the Colts seperated themselves “less” so than the Pats (which actually means nothing to me as this isn’t college football, but I’m adding it here because it helps not make your point)
    SF 14 @ IND 18
    HOU 17 @ IND 20
    If you want to make the argument that Seymour might be a reason the Pats don’t make it to the Superbowl, I’m willing to acknowledge there is real validity/concern there.
    However, it was a move in keeping with a future-minded policy that has served Patriot Nation extremely well… extremely well.
    And personally, as golden as Seymour’s apple is, he was as close as the Pats come to a disgruntled “bad” apple. With Seymour’s history of contract negotiation, I don’t second guess Belicheck in the slightest.
    Plus, I think that BB felt that the people beneath Seymour were ready to step it up.

  15. The Pats can do nothing right for azzwipes like you. They are either being jerks and running up the score or not very good because they didn’t run up the score. How exactly has the Seymour trade proven to be costly? I would appreciate your expert analysis. I’ll always love Seymour but how would his presence have changed the season?? Sure the Pats probably aren’t on the Colts(joke schedule), Steelers(lost to Bears) or Bengals(beat the Ravens ,who hasn’t) level but they are still pretty good. Oh yeah, and they beat the Phins without the guy who replaced Seymour.

    @ Asswipe Johnson
     
    What a DUMBASS!
     
    First you say the Patriots have not beaten anyone.
    Then you have the Colts ranked first in the AFC.
    YOU JUST CONTRADICTED YOUR OWN ARGUMENT, Dumbass!!!
    Who have the Colts beat?
    They have played the easiest schedule in the NFL so far, there opponents had a combined wining percentage of .340 before yesterdays game, DUMBASS!!
    Oh, and they barley got away with a win yesterday!!
    And the other undefeated team in the NFL the Saints there opponents have a combined wining percentage of .481 not exactly the cream of the crop.
    The fact is they can only play the teams that are on there schedule, they have won 6 out of 8.
    It does not matter if it is by 10, 15, 20 or 1 it is a WIN.
    You haters kill me, you always try to find something to hate on.
     
    Jealousy is an ugly thing,
     
    Hate on Hater, Hate on…….
     
     
     
     

  17. armpits,
    New England’s first picks under Belichick in the last 10 years are as follows:
    ’99 Damien Woody (17th overall)
    Andy Katzenmoyer (27th overall)
    ’00 Adrian Klemm
    ’01 Richard Seymour (6th overall)
    ’02 Daniel Graham (21st overall)
    ’03 Ty Warren (13th overall)
    ’04 Vince Wilfork (21st overall)
    ’05 Logan Mankins (32nd overall)
    ’06 Lawrence Maroney (21st overall)
    ’07 Brandon Meriweather (24th overall)
    ’08 Jerrod Mayo (10th overall)
    So it appears you have roughly 5 hits and 6 misses. Now anyone doing the math can tell you that you have a less than 50% chance of the drafted player that the Seymour trade brings back of sticking on your roster. And you have roughly a 1 in 10 (10%) chance of hitting another Seymour with the pick.
    So signing Seymour and taking 3-4 more years of Pro Bowl caliber play doesn’t look so bad now, does it armpits?

    Niners 5-0 in Super Bowls, Pats 3-3…NOTHING for me to be JEALOUS of, unlike YOU, fool.
    Joe Montana 4-0 in the Super Bowl, Tom Brady 3-1….again, NOTHING for me to be JEALOUS of, fool.
    BARELY winning IS only winning by TEN, especially when most of you lame ass Pats fans were talking about running up the score on the pathetic Fins. Try swallowing THAT, like you swallow manjuice every night in your job over at the local truckstop “gloryhole”, or as you call it “Jack In (Your) [Mouth] Box”.
    As for your “girlfriend”, of course you don’t have to do anything to “her”…because “she” is a “he”, davisthehomo. Sounds like you are jealous of the Cowboys as well, since they ALSO have FIVE Super Bowls to their credit, instead of a lousy three (with asterisks next to them).
    Suck on dicksucker, suck on…just like the rest of your buttbuddies over there in New Eng(ay)land. BTW, when are you and your boyfriend getting married? You do know that it is legal to marry him in the land of the Patriots, don’t you? LMFAO!!!!!!

  19. @ davis
    Correction for those here like davis who missed yesterday’s hooked on phonics, reading and aerobics class. I said I have the Colts, Steelers and Bengals all rated above the Broncos, Patriots and Chargers. I never made a distinction between the top three teams as to who was the best.
    The Colts are 8-0 and the Pats are 6-2, figure it out…and both Pittsburgh and the Bengals (2 losses each, same as NE) have distinguished themselves when it comes to play against similar, superior (Pitt 27, Vikes 17) and common (Bengals 17, Ravens 7) opponents.
    Time will tell…

  20. @asswipe
    you realize the steelers needed a couple botched fg’s and over time to beat a team the Pats beat by almost 60 pts? and the steelers almost lost to a calvin johnson-less detroit team, then needed help from the refs to beat the vikings?

  21. My god, anyone who watched this game can not be seriously impressed by the Patriots victory, and certainly the game was close. Yes a win is a win, but these teams are in different classes right now. IMO, as a die hard Dolphin fan, I thought the Patriots would cover the 10.5 points and I guess I underestimated my team, and or over estimated the Patriots.
    We all know the difference in talent level between these two teams. So loosing Jason Ferguson, Channing Crowder, Will Allen the past weeks have certainly hampered their team more than any injury the patriots have suffered THIS year. It was obvious that ferg was gone with Maroney not getting touched up the middle. The Dolphins started two rookies at corner against supposedly one of the best QB’s ever. Along with one of the best WR’s ever. (Along with Wes Welker whom everyone with a brain knows that he is one of the best slot receivers to memory) Add to that Vontae Davis got injured in the game and was replaced by super stiff Jason Allen. Vontae comes back hampered only to let up the 71 yard pass to Moss.
    The Dolphins offense consists of no notable receivers, with Greg Camirillo as their number 1 option. With a QB who was starting his 5th game of his young career. So as a Dolphins fan, I look at this game positively with sights of the future. We have a young team and will eventually have one of the best corner duo in the league. With a young core, I almost hope we are in position to draft Dez Bryant in the first round next year. To other Dolphins fans, next years team will be so interesting. We need one more draft focusing on WR’s big time, and every other pick focused on LB’ers, Nose tackle, and depth. I love watching this team and I am happy we are finally going in the right direction. There is no shame being 3-5 with pretty close losses at Atlanta, New England and San Diego. With two home losses to Indy and New Orleans. The only undefeated teams left. I think those teams are a combined 34-8 or something like that.
    I’m not happy with a team that is below .500, but considering all this I have no doubt in my mind that the future of the AFCE will have the Dolphins contending year after year. So I hope you enjoyed the dominance over the last decade, NE, because we are closing the gap considerably. That is undeniable.

  22. The Pats haven’t distinguished themselves because they haven’t beaten anyone? The teams they have faced have a much better record than the teams the Colts have beaten. The Colts beat the Phins as well, but barely. The Phins owned them most of that game!
    The Colts are beat up right now, and are struggling each week. They are relying heavily on Manning, which should not be seen as a sign of encouragement, since Manning has been known to fall apart when facing the Pats in the past, or has a great game. Hard to tell which Manning will show up against what is essentially a brand new, much faster NE defense that has been getting better weekly. The NE safeties are much faster, our corners are much better than last year, Mayo is outstanding, and AD even seems to have rediscovered himself.
    Watch out, this is going to be one heck of a game. I would say Pats by a touchdown!

  23. Asswipe, your math doesn’t add up as your stupid comments. In 99 Pete Carroll drafted Woody and Katzenmoyer. Adrian Klemm was a second round pick.
    Seymour, Warren, Wilfork, Mankins, Merriweather and Mayo are ALL productive starters for NE and Graham left as a FA to Denver. Say what you will about Maroney but your argument is flawed, just as your comments.

  24. @asswipe johnsson
    you said this patriots team has had serious difficulties separating themselves from middle of the road teams.
    My point was so have the Colts as a previose post pointed out.
    So have the Saints the Steelers and the Bengals.
    My point is it was a week argument to try and compare
    at this point in the season

  25. @cornflorio
    In all the time it took you to do all that gay
    bashing you left out one important fact.
    The 49ers have not won anything in over
    20 YEARS!!!!
    LMFAO!!!!!!
    Hate on Hater, hate on…..
    Oh and the funny thing is, if your 49ers
    had a chance to get Brady you would be the
    first in line to get your jersey!

  26. Spot on, Papooseo59.
    Free agents of interest in the offseason for Miami include Wilfork (drive the price up-addition by subtraction theory) Dansby, Seymour, Peppers, Vincent Jackson and Miles Austin.
    With Parcells and Henning still aboard expect particular attention possibly given to Austin and Peppers…given their familiarity with both players. You can bet they also have Wilfork and Seymour scouted pretty well in seeing them both a couple times a year for a bit now.
    This Miami team is closer than many people realize…just as the New England team is declining faster than many people realize.

  27. armpits,
    My bad on ’99 (Carroll). Still the point remains that 5 time Pro Bowl (3 time All-Pro) lineman like Richard Seymour just don’t grow on trees.
    Belichick’s draft history in New England further proves this as the players you just listed have a grand total of 2 Pro Bowls between them.
    So just as I stated, you have a 1 in 10 (10%) chance of landing another Richard Seymour in the draft.
    Flawed is evidently just a state of mind, armpits…

    Uh 3-5 phins
    6-2 pats
    and getting 9 good seasons out of Richard
    then getting a 1st round pick for him is pretty
    good.

  31. You’re one of those ‘fans’ aren’t you Asswipe (not very funny since you have to explain someone else’s joke).
    You judge players by Pro Bowl’s…lol.

  32. “and getting 9 good seasons out of Richard
    then getting a 1st round pick for him is pretty
    good”
    Your Super Bowl window with Brady-Moss is closing quickly. Giving up 3-4 more Pro Bowl years from Seymour without being able to adequately replace this from a player standpoint is not a good trade off imo.
    Your defense is currently giving up an average of 20 points per game to offensive juggernauts such as the Bills, Jets (- Braylon), Ravens, Broncos and Dolphins. Wait until offenses like the Colts and Saints get a hold of them over the next three weeks.
    Then see what happens in the playoffs and get back with me about how great that Seymour trade was…

  33. Everyone knows once Brady is finished that Belichick has kissed the baby.
    Belichick’s record without Tom Brady
    = 51 wins and 61 losses

  34. @asswipe (pronounced ass-wipe)
    You should probably run along now kid. Your embarrassing yourself. NE has the 3rd best scoring defense in the NFL. The first two players on your Pats 1st round draft list weren’t drafted by Belechick, the 3rd was a late 2nd rounder. You also realize the Oakland pick will probably be a top 5, right? Well I’d say Belechick has done pretty well with his picks in the top 10 (Seymour/Mayo).
    There’s nothing wrong with getting all worked up and trying to stir things up, but c’mon, you just look stupid.

    Now on to the semantics portion.
    A defense tends to be ranked fairly high when to this point in the year you have played against the following ranked (scoring) offenses: Buffalo 28th, Tenn 27th (With Collins), Tampa 25th, Denver 24th, Jets 23rd (Pre Braylon), Miami 14th, Atlanta 12th, Baltimore 10th.
    Now maybe you can explain why your implied “great” Pats defense is giving up far more points than the season average to offensive juggernauts such as Buffalo, Denver, the Jets and Miami?
    I know the 7 points given up to teams (Tenn-Tampa) who have benched more quarterbacks (including the two who started vs the Pats) than the rest of the NFL teams combined has nothing to do with skewing those defensive points allowed stats, hmmmm? LOL…tricks are for kids.

    Thank you
    let me do the math for you asswipe, 115 points PA in 8 games = 14 ppg thats good for # 3 in the nfl.
    And do want to play the BB without Brady game?
    Lets check Bill walsh without Joe Montana, or
    JJ without Troy
    Or coach big chin without Ben
    or Tony dungy without Peyton
    We can play that game all day

    Let’s not forget Eric Turner (2nd overall), “Touchdown” Tommy Vardell (9th overall) and Antonio Langham from Belichick’s Cleveland Browns days in ’91-’95.
    Belichick may be the only coach in recent memory to have taken a fullback (Touchdown Tommy Weeee!) in the top 10. LOL.

    =================================
    Miami, pf 193 that is a season avg of 24 the pats gave up 17
    Jets, pf 177 season avg 22 pats gave up 16
    denver pf 140 season avg 20 pats gave up 20
    and the first game of the season buffalo season avg 15 ne def gave up 17 1 buf td came on a pick six
    So you are wrong again 2 held below there season avg 1 held at there season avg and 1 got
    2 more points than there season avg.
    Does not look like they have given up far more
    points than the teams season avg.

    Lets check Bill walsh without Joe Montana, or
    JJ without Troy
    Or coach big chin without Ben
    or Tony dungy without Peyton
    We can play that game all day”
    Yes, we can play that game all day…and Belichick is still the only loser.
    Dungy 54-42 (Without Manning)

    “Miami, pf 193 that is a season avg of 24 the pats gave up 17
    Jets, pf 177 season avg 22 pats gave up 16
    denver pf 140 season avg 20 pats gave up 20
    and the first game of the season buffalo season avg 15 ne def gave up 17 1 buf td came on a pick six
    So you are wrong again 2 held below there season avg 1 held at there season avg and 1 got
    2 more points than there season avg.”
    You really do have a reading problem, davis…don’t you? Now go and redo the Jets stats before the Braylon Edwards trade, as was originally stated.
    While you’re at it, redo the Bills stats…since you called the pick 6 vs the Pats, you should also know about the Bills other defensive and special teams touchdowns that brings their points scored (by offense) avg down.
    Same thing with Miami and Denver…then get back to me, genius.
    At least I am keeping you busy today…LOL.

    all = 0 SB
    but you do know your stuff, I have to give you
    that. Good job !
    That being said, all that matters today
    NE 6-2 1st place. 14 ppg good enough for 3rd
    But again good job.

  45. Maybe Belichick will draft you guys another “Touchdown” Tommy Vardell with that top 10 pick you guys are getting for Seymour from the Raiders.
    Here is Belichick (Pre Hoodie) with his prized 9th overall pick from the 1992 draft “Touchdown” Tommy Vardell. This is also known as the “Touchdown” Tommy NFL highlight reel. Don’t blink. LOL.

  46. I think we’ve got us a closet Pats fan here, boys. Spends an awful lot of his time thinking about them. Still haven’t explained how Seymour’s trade is hurting them. If your team had won anything in the last 20 years you’d also realize that drafting late in the first round is a little more difficult. Not that you can’t grab a Wilfork or Merriwether at 22. Maybe a Mankins and Watson at 32. Trade a 3 time pro bowl QB for a Warren at 14. Put your money where your mouth is and find out how your other great tams have done.

  47. It’s also funny how someone behind a computer
    thinks he knows more than an NFL coach
    with over 25 yrs exp

    Thanks davis…just having some fun here.
    You’re right about the record and that’s all that matters.
    But I do still stand by my opinion that the defensive numbers are somewhat misleading…and they definitely are not as good with the loss of Seymour. I believe this is one trade that will not work out in the end for Belichick.
    Same thing on the Steelers, Colts and Bengals looking like the best AFC teams to this point.
    My Phins will be ready to make their move by next season and we’ll still play tough hard nosed football the rest of this year.
    Good luck with New England the rest of the way…

    You can’t honestly believe the Patriots defense is better off without him. Even little Bill would tell you to get a grip on that one…

    I would never claim to know more about the NFL than Bill Belichick.
    That said, I do have an opinion on the Seymour trade being a bad one for New England for the reasons previously stated…about the window left with Brady-Moss and the difficulty in replacing Seymour along with the unknowns when it comes to draft picks.
    Nobody is right all the time. Little Bill himself won’t even argue that one…just look at Tommy Vardell with the 9th pick. LOL.
    Have a good night boys…

  51. The reason I don’t agree is his contract was up at the
    end of the season. They said he would have
    wanted more than they were willing to pay.
    At least this way they get something for
    him.
    And knowing BB he probably trades the pick.
