4th and 7/8 on their 27 yard line, the Patriots fake the punt and get the first down. I could not get over that play the entire game. It was disrespectful, and we took it.

The Dolphins were livid that Michael Thomas wasn’t credited with a fumble recovery on a punt early in the second half. They should have been livid that Bill Belichick thought so little of their coverage that on the first series of the game, he called a fake punt from his 27-yard line. With 8 yards to go for a first down. Upback Nate Ubner took the snap and ran 14 yards. Four plays later, it was 7-0 and New England was on its way.

disrespectful? I know your sentiment and respect where that comes from, but.....

....this reminds me of a quote by Herm Edwards, it goes something like "You Play To Win The Game!!" With emphasis on YOU, PLAY, TO, WIN, THE, GAME.

Or the movie with Tom Hanks and the girls baseball team: "There's no crying in baseball!".

Well, both of those things apply here. There is no "disrespect" in NFL football, and you play to win, not earn brownie points. Nor should we feel sorry for the Dolphins when they are outsmarted and outplayed.

The Dolphins have to earn that respect, and they have to become good enough and smart enough and well coached enough to keep accomplished teams like NE from succeeding when they try stuff like that.

And it may not be as outrageous but back when Marino first pulled the clock play, when the Fins were going good, I'm sure Jets fans considered it bush and disrespectful.

It was probably because they listened in on the headset call and knew the play that was going to be run.

Patriots fans think the Dolphins play dirty...Not use to being smacked in the mouth like that.

Well, guys, you know that I didn't take it personal, but the Dolphins should have. Belichick's a genius.

Well, this is embarrassing.

Um … was he coaching when Irving Fryar and Nick Bouniconti came to the Dolphins?

A gutsy call that changed the momentum of the game. Disrespect is more like have a huge lead but driving for a late TD in the 4th quarter to run up the score.

Not just here tho, the Patriots pick up guys from all over the league and, well...

Quote:
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Five days after being signed off the Buffalo Bills' practice squad, defensive end Eric Lee played 25 snaps in his NFL debut for the New England Patriots and finished with four tackles and one sack in the team's win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

This just shows you what happens when a player believes in the system that's in place and has trust in the staff. They come in and give everything they have on every snap.

I think everyone had a sack in that one. I thought I saw Brady dragging Matt Moore down at one point.

More like:

"This is an awful team, let's just convert it and go score."

It was disrespect solely in this fact. There was absolutely no fear in the Pats that had it failed that Miami was a threat to score. Miami earned that lack of respect.

Belichick loves to rub our nose in it that at the time they are better than us. The Pats really needed to fake a punt against the Dolphins, lol.

Right there. Belichick may say all the positive things before a game, but actions during the game speak louder than words. He doesn't think this is a good team, and neither do we. There was no fear in failing to get that first down inside their own 30 yard line. That is on us.
