Found October 22, 2012 on Phins Phocus:
They say one of the worst things you can do in the NFL is look at the schedule and plan wins and losses. Well the most important thing in the NFL is winning the games you should win. As the outspoken Dolphins offensive line statement put it best, Richie incognito ‏@68INCOGNITO IT'S OFFICIALLY JETS WEEK #TURNUP   The Dolphins enter Jets week the healthier and quite frankly probably the more talented of the teams, that doesn’t mean they will win the game however. The Dolphins head to New York 2.5 underdogs playing a team who has already got a gritty win against them. This game is huge for the Dolphins, if the Phins have any playoff aspirations this is a game you must win. The Dolphins sit in 2nd in the AFC East at 3-3, one game ahead of the 3-4 Jets and Bills and one game behind the 4-3 Pats. If the Dolphins can take care of business this Sunday they would be setting themselves up pretty nicely in what is a very weak AFC this year. The Dolphins will face the Jets without Ho...

Channing Crowder: Michael Phelps smoked weed with Young Jeezy, Ryan Lochte a hippie pothead

When the infamous photo of Michael Phelps with his mouth pressed against a bong hit the internet more than three years ago, former Miami Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder was not surprised. Crowder, who is now a mid-day host on 560 WQAM’s “The Jorge Sedano Show” in Miami, said he saw Phelps smoking weed no more than three weeks prior to the picture coming out. And...

Off a bye, Dolphins ready to get back to work

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- Just about every member of the Miami Dolphins had a different bye-week itinerary. Richie Incognito went to the beach and did little else. Brian Hartline watched Ohio State.

Paul Soliai walked in a 5-kilometer race for breast cancer awareness and tried to avoid even thinking about football. Lamar Miller tailgated at the Miami-Florida State game. Cameron Wake attempted, somewhat unsuccessfully...

Mark Sanchez kicks ball out of endzone for safety (Video)

Many New York Jets fans expected starting quarterback Mark Sanchez to show off his arm today against the New England Patriots.

During the second quarter of play, Mark lost control of a hand-off to Shonn Greene and had to kick the...

Mark Sanchez Tops 300 Yards in Loss

Jets QB Mark Sanchez delivered a season-high 328 passing yards Sunday against New England.Fantasy Spin:Yet what he'll most be remembered for is coughing up the football to lose the game in overtime. Though the day ended badly for Sanchez there are definitely some positives he can take away from this outing. His 68.3 percent completion rate was his second-highest of the season...

Tebow assigned to mimic Brady

As quarterbacks, you could probably count the similarities between Tim Tebow and Tom Brady on one hand. One thing the players do share is that they both played under Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. That's why New York Jets coach Rex Ryan had Tebow mimicking Brady in the Jets' practice week leading up to Sunday's matchup against the Patriots. Ryan told...

They will remain close friends.” I can guarantee you that there are plenty of NY Jets...

Jim Nantz butchers ending of Jets-Patriots game (Video)

CBS announcer Jim Nantz loves to script his endings, and in this case, it looks like the practice backfired on him. Nantz completely butchered his call for the ending of the New England Patriots-New York Jets game on Sunday, saying not once, but twice that the Jets had won. The Jets, in fact, lost 29-26 in overtime when Mark Sanchez lost a fumble following a Patriots field goal...

Round Table: Pats-Jets Analysis

  A week ago, no one would have thought that Week 7's Pats/Jets match-up would feature teams with identical records. With a four-way tie for 1st place in the AFC East, how big is today's game and how do you see it playing out?
