JETS MANIA IN FULL FORCE

It's Jets week, and that can only mean one thing around Dolphins training camp: Lots of talk about the rivalry. More precisely, lots of talk about The Streak.

As any Dolphins fan is painfully aware, the Dolphins have lost their last eight meetings against the Jets, who come to Pro Player Stadium Sunday afternoon.

So not surprisingly, many of the questions asked of Dolphins players on Wednesday centered around the idea of a jinx, and what can be done to end it.

For most of the Dolphins players, it's a waste of time to talk about it.

"It surprises me how much people get carried away with it," said quarterback Jay Fiedler. "All of that has no bearing on what happens this week."

As much as they don't care to talk about the streak, Dolphins players also understand that it's inevitable they will be asked about it until they finally beat the Jets.

But the biggest thing the Dolphins are stressing is that what has happened in the past will not affect what happens Sunday afternoon.

"It's not like it's the exact same guys against the exact same guys," said offensive tackle Todd Wade. "There's no reason for us not to come out with a win."

Leave to tackle Mark Dixon to come up with the best line.

When asked he if believed in a Jets jinx, Dixon replied: "I believe in heat. I believe in football in Miami in September."
