Good game by Miami. Things are changing!
This game was different than game 1 last year. The Fins are trending in the right direction.

I have to give credit to the Pats OC. The play calls made the most of Cam's running ability. Also, I thought the Fins would be able to run the ball better. The Pats played the run well. The Pats' defense deserves credit also.

SteelersPride,

I find it kind of weird that as a Steelers fan you are so interested in the Fins vs. Pats game.

The real Fitzmagic showed up this week.

He is by far the most on or off starter in the league.

You act like a jerk with your posts. That says a lot about you beyond football talk.

RE the topic: No one is saying the Fins have arrived with their improvement. They are getting better. It takes time.

Thanks. It says a lot to judge how someone is in real life by a few posts you read as well. Also venture to the main board before you make that statement, it’s been said.
Have a good one.

You are a Steelers fan who acts like a jerk to Fins fans while rooting for the Pats. You don't find that a little weird?

Let me clue you in. Posting your thoughts on a sports forum is real life.

This isn't the main board. I am not talking about discussions on another board.

If time on the main board means more chats with you then I can do without that.

Curious, aside from my discussions with FFF, and tagging paolo to another thread. What did I say that was so awful? A quick glance at this thread doesn’t show anything.

I discussed with psaboy. We talk. We bs about horse racing....so having a discussion with him seems fine as well

Regardless, apologies. Have a good one.

Multiple lol comments is what you are doing. You bring negativity to the board. It doesn't really contribute to the chats.

I think there is reason for optimism with the team. The Fins are a young team that will keep getting better. If you don't agree with that it's fine. However, you don't have to make the lol comments every time a fan shows some optimism. After all you are on the Fins board.

I also wish you a good day.

Honestly, I did lol. You are correct. It’s a team board each team board operates differently. Some welcome banter, some do not. It’s been a long stand tradition of no trolling on team boards on tHoop. I’ve had some back and forth here at times... But regardless that’s on me. You are correct.

I actually agree on the optimism. I like the coach and the direction. I just actually think they may stay around last years record or step back before surging forward. However , that doesn’t mean I don’t think they’ve made some good moves...

But again, sorry...I really am not as big to an A**....as it may appear, you’d probably be shocked IRL.

side note. How do you feel about todays game? I feel the bills are horribly overrated. Even more so after week 1 against the damn jets. I’m contemplating how I wanna wager on that game. I want the phins. But can’t decide if I want straight up, or some points(and how many). The public is hammering the bills because of last week.

I think the Fins will have to defend the QB running game better. If they don't stop Allen's running the Fins will lose again. The Fins have a very good secondary I don't expect him to have a big day passing the ball. If the Fins can keep it close then the weather could become a factor in the second half. It will be in the low 90's. The Bills are not used to that.

I am not a gambling man. I have seen guys get addicted. I have won a few football pools at work in the past but I seldom gamble.

IMO not stopping Cam's runs was the team's biggest mistake vs the Pats. I would rather see the team use a safety or LB to spy on a player like Cam and make him throw it more. He isn't the most accurate passer but the play calls and lack of adjustments by the Fins was a major factor. That said, Flores should keep getting better. He has a very good foundation to build on as a coach.

RE the optimism for the Fins: I definitely see improvement with the Fins Oline among other areas and that has been a weakness of the team for a long time. That is one of the areas that could become a real strength of the team. The Bills Dline presents a major challenge. We will see if they can keep improving.
