Dolphins lead Texans 21-20 going into the 4th Q

The Dolphins and Texans traded touchdowns in the third quarter as Miami continues to cling to a 1-point advantage.

The Texans got a 12 yard TD catch from Andre Johnson to take a 20-14 lead. That came after Johnson caught a 61 yard pass to set up the score.

The Dolphins answered with a six-play drive that culminated with a 5 yard TD run by Ricky Williams to regain the lead.

our special teams cost us this game

awful play calling ..the coaches took a nap today

Only the Miami Dolphins can lose like this.

DOLPHINS SPECIAL TEAMS SUCKS ASS. OUR RETURNERS ARE THE WORST IN THE LEAGUE.

Special Teams and Secondary.

You are a bunch of fair-weather fans....

Our coaching was poor today...not just the D setup on the fourth and goal, but why did we not go for the two pointer when we went up on the Brown run?

Put in Henne for the Hail Mary

this is the dolphins i know and love

SCORED TOO EARLY! Time is more vital than points.

season is back to being what we thought it would be

WHAT A MORONIC CALL........YOU MORONS ACTUALLY THOUGHT THIS TEAM WOULD HAVE A WINNING SEASON, YOU'VE BEEN LIED TO FOR OVER 40 YEARS, AND HOW MANY DEAD FANS HAVE WAITED FOR THIS PIECE OF CRAP TEAM...

One suggestion: when we lose let's lose like men not like a back-door team.

why not put henne in for the hail mary?

ARMANDO JUST CLOSE ALL YOUR BLOGS, I REALLY DONT WANT TO HEAR THE RUSH OF IGNORANT FIN FANS

our D took a step make today...our secondary sucks

Hey Mando, when you talk to little tuna, remind him that playing not to lose was the formula for 1-15 last year. Tell him to play to win.

KISS OUR PLAYOFF HOPES GOODBYE, THIS WAS A HORRIBLE LOSS.

This was painful and there were a lot of mistakes(coach why the hell don't you go for two!!???). Mostly we played a solid game but our DBs are pitiful. I would hate to be the front seven and tally more ints than our DBs. Hell, we might as well put Starks and Ayodele back there to cover. Can't be much worse.

At least we know we still suck c_ck.... f this team. great job d.

THis $ucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We rushed 4 the entire drive. The defense line was exhausted, yet we're still only bringing 4 on the goal line? And we let them spread us out on the 3 yard line? Somebody in the booth choked on this one.

i was worried about this game. maybe they wont fall into the trap next time. the D really let us down. 12 play 76 yards.

just when u thought you could be proud to be a dolphins fan they go out and lose to a crappy ass texan team, and its there first win as well.

well that just ruined my whole week now, now i cant watch highlights or anything else, dropped ints all day and then we fall 4 the spread sneak, i wanna cry or break something

My heart hurts right now....

D sucked it up today. Score 28 points and lose? Jeez. Can't wait for next season.

LET'S LOSE AS MANY GAMES AS WE CAN, yeah BUDDY.....LET'S GO JETS, BILLS, WHOEVER ELSE WE PLAY I WILL ROOT FOR THEM, UNTIL DUMBA$$ SPUDRANO, BENCHES HILL, CROCKER, GINN, GOODMAN THIS team is lost......

CHASE F you the team defense $ucks and as fans we can vent our frustration on these bums playng defense

How can you not have someone in the middle on the goal line ? Someone needs to get cut or fired. I want ther GD head.

Ronnie shoulda stopped at the one for a first...selfish TD

CHASE your a jerk

we already won two games...tank the rest of the season and get another solid draft. maybe we focus on getting some guys in the secondary to make some f-ing plays??? pathetic. only we can lose like this...

Bad game coaching.

4th and an inch - punt for TB

Not going for 2

Scoring the last TD was an time management mistake.

how does no one call timeout before that draw, what a horrible let down for that entire last drive

Sad sad sad. No chance of the playoffs anymore. At least my Sunday's will be free from now on.

I think that Hill's inability to catch that interception made a big difference at the end. We would've been up by 8 instead of 5. This loss really hurts.

Honestly, our coaches have a lot learning to do and they've been around too long to still have to learn this. Hell at the 3 the coverage can basically maul the receivers for much of their running space. that leaves more on the line for runs and draws(hint, hint!).

Ronnie's last play was a minor problem when Schaub has 2 picks, but still the Texans score 29 points. D was crap.
Ronnie's the least of their problem.

I WOULD RATHER JUST HEAR CONSTRUCTIVE CRITISISMS... WE DID NOT LOSE THIS GAME BECAUSE WERE THE SAME TEAM AS LAST YEAR OR OTHER TEAMS OF THE PAST, WHICH I BELIEVE HAS BEEN STATED NUMEROUS TIMES ALREADY... TEXANS MADE SOME AMAZING PLAYS.. AND WE MADE ONE BONEHEAD PLAY AT THE END

There was never any chance for the playoffs -- are you kidding?

Hopefully Obama wins so I can be part of at least one winning team...

Why does our team always give up in the last few minutes. I though the Dolphins were a team of men but they look like children when they lose the way they did today. Absolutely pathetic and they should all give there game checks up for charity.

Need to be cut before next game: Goodman, Crocker, Ginn. Those guys should NOT be playing in the NFL.

now i know hor ravens fans feel after that game against the Patriots last year. typical trap, let down, game for a young inconsistent team, why do the dolphins have to torture us like this

ALL FIN FANS ARE IDIOTS FOR FOLLOWING THIS JOKE A TEAM, WE ARE AND WILL ALWAYS BE LIKE THE LIONS, BENGALS, AND YES FINS.......

u ppl suck when the won last week all yall the devices all yall suck yall r onley fans when they win unlike yall i love this team win or lose

gawd, I remember when Benny Malone scored too early and we went on and lost a game. Will we ever learn?

D-backs SUCK!!!

Great game Joey Porter

should have taken another 30 secs of the clock on our scoring drive!!! bad clock management!!! gave them the ball back way too early!!! Dolphins suck once again!!!

And the NFL needs to do something with Hock's crew, we got cheated all day long. They must be betting on the game.

Awful garbage. Third and short and twice they pass and fail to get it. 4th and less than a yard and they punt both times. Bell goes for a pick rather than knock down the 4th down pass. Dolphins keep a timeout in their pocket rather then set the defense up on the last play. Who here didn't see the QB run with the tackles split 3-5 yards apart? Sporano has a ton to learn about game management.

I'm going to go kill myself...it's been fun talking with you guys. Go Fins in 2009!!!

It was fun while it lasted...

This is the first time I think the Wildcat has hurt Miami. You have got to pound the ball with Ronnie Brown. The quick strike are fun, but I think it tired out the Defense. They couldn't stop anything, the only thing the few turnovers did was keep the score much closer to what it would have been. Bottom line; the lack of a deep threat wide receiver and the lack of a shut down corner is what cost Miami this game. Until they can fill those 2 needs, Miami is not back. A few wins here and there, feel nice, but in the end Miami still has a ways to go. Keep pushing and building for tomorrow.

REST MY CASE

Chase you are correct about this team not being the same. At the same time, none of the issues for today seem to have been addressed. Coach said that giving up the bigs plays lost us our first 2. Today giving up the big plays lost us the game. When your DBs can't cover for crap then you have issues. I am also shocked our front seven didn't give more pressure. We have a long ways to go but I would love to see a battle every week instead of our O grinding and their O making huge pass plays and keeping our D on the field all day because they can't stop the pass at all.

ARMANDO, SOMEONE NEEDS TO EXPLAIN WHY THE DEFENSE WAS IN A SPREAD FORMATION AT THE GOALINE. PLUS WHY WE DIDN'T USE OUR LAST TIMEOUT AFTER WE GOT A LOOK AT THEIR FORMATION, AND WHY RONNIE DIDN'T DO A BRIAN WESTBROOK AND STOP AT THE 1 YD LINE LIKE LAST YEAR.

We had 1 timeout left. Should've taken it prior to the 4th down play (after looking their offensive formation).

folks expect 5 or 6 wins that's it. We still have a lot of work to do. We aint that good, our DB's stink our WR's are below average and we still need some ILB's... Get real!

PREVENT DEFENSE costs us the game as usual. Should have been blitzing Schaub on that last drive instead time. Back into the cellar of the AFC East we go.

P.S. Our DBs are really pathetic.

Once again, a team with large recievers, take advantage of our puny defensive backs. I say we take the best possible cornerback with our number one pick and grab Detroit's Williams in free agency.
