Our buddy Israel Gutierrez at the Herald was asking Fins fans to join him in rooting for the Jets because it validates the Dolphins if they get to the SuperBowl.
Ummmm. How long have you been following the Fins? That's possibly the most nonsensical thing I've ever heard. In fact its laughable (insert diabolical laugh).
The facts is that Miami is *already* validated because the Jets made it this far. Miami beat them twice, and that's good enough!
And having played the Colts to the very end - what was it? the last play where Teddy Ginn (junior) missed the pass - surely shows they have the moxy to win against anyone. There's still work to be done, but that's a good stepping stone.
