Beating a divisional opponent is never meaningless. So if pigs learn to fly and the Dolphins beat the Pats, it will be an excellent win because we would have beaten the kings of the AFC East.
Even *I'll* be happy about that. But that's the problem--the Fins keep winning games that mean nothing to me or the big picture and losing games when I actually, badly, want them to win for the most part. Oh sure, there's the annual win over the Jets (yet no sweep) but that can only fulfill me so much.
But winning a non-conference game when you have no shot at the playoffs? That's meaningless for the Phins. Sure, it may make the players and fans feel better for a few days before getting demolished by the Patriots, but in the grand scheme of things it means nothing for the Dolphins. The game had meaning for the Seahwaks, because they're actually in a playoff race. But the Dolphins? Not so much.
I swear, it's like Jmp has figured out how to read my mind. I'm constantly astonished by how often he keeps posting exactly what I'm thinking and feeling. It's bordering on creepy at this point
