Dolphins lead Rams 10-9 to start 3rd quarter

Cannot say this has been a stellar effort by the Dolphins, but they have done enough to lead the St. Louis Rams 10-9 at the beginning of the third quarter.

The Dolphins scored all their points in the second quarter on a Ronnie Brown TD run and a FG by Dan Carpenter. Believe it or not, the Rams offense has moved the ball with more consistency, putting together three FG drives.

Obviously, the failure to get in the end zone is costing St. Louis.

One thing that is troubling to me is the fact the Dolphins have tried to throw the football more than they've tried to run against St. Louis. The Rams are ranked 30th in the NFL against the run this year but Chad Pennington is 10 of 16 for 115 yards.

Ricky Williams has 6 carries for 28 yards and Ronnie Brown has 5 carries for 24 yards. Brown has the TD run.

The Dolphins lost starting guard Justin Smiley to a leg injury in the first quarter. He has not returned and the fear is the injury is serious.

Joey Porter went for the fake on the end around and totally whiffed on the handoff to Jackson.


gairc...coz when we do drop or blitz they shove the ball up...

Interference on St. Lou

why wont they call penalties on them

can we get some pressure on the QB? is porter playing???


Tasker trying to take STL's side. Unreal

Got something to say to me, Andrew?

OK. You were right. Mando



Mando was right!

nice hand for a LB!!!

And I said that before I saw what you wrote


thats what we needed

Up until that play, it has been torture watching our defense

they obviously have a play they want to (effectively) try out of the wildcat. Here's hoping Satele got slapped around by the O-Line coach on the sideline

Sorry. I must have misread the info on Boldin. The point though is that the Dolphins are going to need a tough possession receiver who will go over the middle. Not long, just 10-15 yards. Ginn, at 175lbs soaking wet, will never fit that role.

Maryland has a receiver "Heward-Bey?" that might fit the bill.

Armando-Will this interception wake up anyone on the Dolphins? Please tell the to sleep on the flight-not on the field!

now...can we score a TD?

I'm just having fun with you Andrew. I'm trying not to go crazy with this ridiculous game.


Fins should make a run at FA CB Nnamdi Asomugha from OAK...

These guys are comical.

Our O is imploding too.

our center was BLOWN UP on that play!

Ah, that exchange was Chad's fault, not Samson's.


STL is killing us on the TOP

And Curley said, "woop, woop, woop, woop."


Keystone cops!!!!!!!


I quit.

Mando Not The Menace,but The Menace Is A 3rd Cousin Of Manny,viva La Rasta,viva La Libra Da Cuba,viva Mando Numral Una Da Desoptes.

How does Martin fumble that! Sometimes you just have to go down when you're tackled

What team is this?

Penningnot showing his leadership skills by arguing

Can these guys learn to live with prosperiety!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


enough of the clown ball. RUN THE BALL

No one wants to win this one.

That's why I don't mind when Ginn goes down fast. He can't fumble that way.

Heyward-Bey would be a good choice, but he does get the dropsies from time to time. he's sort of a bigger version of c.chambers, which is both good & bad.

I cannot stand this shi*************************

WTH was that? DAM!!!! we turned a first down into a turn over!

Cover up the damn ball. What is so hard?

mR742, he was arguing if you read his lip he said heck of a play...Ronnie explaining why he didnt throw it back

Some pressure would be nice.

we don't deserve to win this game


not what I saw but OK

Joey Thomas may not be on this team come tomorrow

have they converted EVERY 3rd down conversion today? We Suck

joey thomas shouldn't be on this team tomorrow. they should trade him to the jets for a box of socks for the team.

Do the Rams have the best offensive line in the NFL? Why can Ronnie run or follow a play call? Can the defense get off the field?

I need another Beer.

That just shows me how far this team has to go as a football team. Perfect chance to square this game away and Martin gives it up. We can still pull this one out but really we have so far to go.
