Enter the Je'Rod Cherry Super Bowl XXXVI Ring Raffle and join Je'Rod Cherry in his efforts to help children in need around the world.
Realistically, Miami could find themselves at 9-7 or better, but just miss the playoffs. That would be a great season...

Dave felt Miami had a solid defense, but needed help on the o-line. "The Guy" that year was Robert Gallery, but he went to the Raiders #2 overall (and has had an up-and-down career). It looks like the next-best guy Shawn Andrews may be avaialble to Miami when they pick #20.
So, he traded up ONE SPOT to take a guy who was the third-best tackle, and a small reach at #19. Now to be clear, Carey has turned out to be decent for Miami. But - not spectacular. And he may even be let go during free agency.
"[you sometimes see it] but usually this only happens when you play the Patriots. I know every time I've been in games like that, it's mostly when you play those guys. When you get out there on the field, using certain words and saying some things, it's part of football. When you start having malicious intent to end somebody's career and somebody's game, that's when you go overboard.''
What's he talking about? Plays that happen "after the whistle." He suggests you watch the broadcast of the game and see what happens after the whistle.
And several players thought the officials didn't take control of the game early enough, instead letting it get to that point.

NFL to take a look at 3-D broadcasts
by SARAH McBRIDE, The Wall Street Journal
Updated: November 24, 2008, 2:29 PM EST
Next week, a game between the San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders will be broadcast live in 3-D to theaters in Los Angeles, New York and Boston. It is a preliminary step on what is likely a long road to any regular 3-D broadcasts of football games.
The idea is a "proof of concept," says Howard Katz, NFL senior vice president of broadcasting and media operations. "We want to demonstrate this and let people get excited about it and see what the future holds."
The several hundred guests at the three participating theaters Dec. 4 will include representatives from the NFL's broadcasting partners and from consumer-electronics companies. The event will be closed to the general public. Burbank, Calif.-based 3ality Digital LLC will shoot the game with special cameras and transmit it to a satellite. Thomson SA's Technicolor Digital Cinema is providing the satellite services and digital downlink to each theater, and Real D 3D Inc. will power the display in the theaters.
In the 2004 Super Bowl, 3ality tested its ability to film football in 3-D.
This isn't the first time the NFL has participated in a 3-D experiment. In 2004, a predecessor company to 3ality filmed the Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and the Carolina Panthers. When Sandy Climan, 3ality's chief executive officer, shows the footage, "people crouch down to catch the ball," he says. "It's as if the ball is coming into your arms."
Technology has advanced considerably since then, and now makes live transmission possible. Boxing in 3-D, Mr. Climan says, particularly "raises your blood pressure."
Real D, which has rolled out 3-D systems in 1,500 theaters around the world, has long advocated the transmission of live events to theaters in 3-D. "We look forward to giving fans of live events the opportunity to feel like they're in the front row," says Michael Lewis, Real D's CEO.
Some live events, including opera broadcasts and circus performances, already pop up on screens at theaters across the country.
Next week's demonstration will also include television displays, to show what might one day be available in homes. While 3-D television sets are already available in stores, mainly for the handful of DVDs available in 3-D, the industry is still working on technical standards for 3-D.
That process raises the possibility that 3-D TV sets purchased today might not be compatible with programs aired in a few years' time. Just as in theaters, home viewers must wear special 3-D glasses.
Something is shitty, crappy, dumb, ignorant, most skaters, snowboarders, punk kids, metal kids from Northern Michigan use this term when aggravated pissed off or just being negitorial towards something.
"My computer is being really gippy"
originally used to describe those preps that acted metal to fit in. Usually acted very differently when not around Goth friends. Now was evolved into the poser scum of society.If some one is posing as two or more stereotypes they are Gippy. also see all in the Poser section and all related to posers
Paul- "Look at that girl over there looks like Hot Topic an American Eagle had a kid and that kid shit itself"
Josh- "yeah what a total gippy"
Paul- "I HATE gippies"
*inside a Ruby Tuesdays*
Renee`- "this place is too bright it could use more BLACK"
Josh- "shut up you gippy whore! you just bought $200 in Holister goods"
a gay hippie; a relaxed yet stylish homosexual who favors patchouli, smoking herb, and long baths and has ideals of peace, love, compassion and human fellowship.
the gippy sat on the hillside, the teeming masses milling below, watched the world while enjoying a toke.
And while Joey may be the guy who's the emotional leader of the team, and he's got a chance at the all-time sack record, he needs to be punished. It would be a tough call, but I'd like to see Sparano suspend him for a game to send a clear message about who's in charge. There are other penalties he could impose, but you can't let him get away with that.

Though they did slow them down a little, they never stopped them.
