Dolphins trail Pats 17-14 to start third quarter

The Dolphins have some work to do in the second half as they have not really been able to contain the New England passing game today.

Matt Cassel has completed 18 of 25 passes for 205 yards and while Miami made him pay with an interception that set up a TD, it is not enough now. The Dolphins trail 17-14 at the start of the third quarter.

Ronnie Brown is not equalling the day he had against New England earlier this year. he has six rushes for 23 yards. He had 113 yards on 17 carries in the first game. The Dolphins have only two rushing first downs, three fewer than New England. And the Patriots aren't even trying to run the ball today.

So, like I said, there is much work to do in the second half.

Join me in the comments section for the live blog to see if the work gets done.

'Mando----for what it's worth, Mandich & Rose are agreeing w/ you big-time re Moss/Allen

Beef Sez:DONT KNOW WHATS WORSE DIERDORFFS HOMERISM OR MANDACH ON RADIO

nice edge blitz

jason needs help

Have I mentioned that Moss vs Allen is a terrible matchup for the Dolphins? Have I said that yet?

I'm starting to agree with you about J Allen he is being owned by Moss

Yeah, they need to take J. Allen off of Moss now.

Kick Barney Frank's butt...

We need Jason Allen off the field!

keep hitting Cassel boys take him out!!!!!

What is going on, picking us apart.

What is NE's 3rd down conversion percentage today?

Jason Allen has been exposed today.

Beef Sez:DONT KNOW WHATS WORSE DIERDORFFS HOMERISM OR MANDACH ON RADIO

I'm starting to think that moss v. Allen is a bad matchup.

what a Fuc@ing shock!!!!!!!!!!! DAMMIT!!

damn this is a good game!!!

were going to loose this game cause we cant get to the qb

Wow
Dierdoff is ridiculous he is such a tool

Cassell is hurt or faking an injury. Keep taking shots at him. This ain't over yet.

Beat the Pats, the NFL, the refs, and the media.

Whose #3 QB for NE mando?

Honestly, if the coaching staff doesn't adjust and give Allen help, it is on them.

Where is Michael Lehan when you need him?

Are the coaches going to give J Allen some help or what

they need to do some serious blitzing

Jason Allen has notified the front office that he has officially changed his name to TOAST.

Its Randy Moss, they dont know about double coverage huh? Come on D, I sware I hat that annoucer Dan they need to fire him...Billcheat maybe pay him to make cassell look so good i hate that annoucer

We can't stop them. That's all there is to it. The defensive schemes are horrible, and we blitz until it stops working one play. We can't let one completion change the way we pressure Cassel!!!!

NE qbs are Kevin O'Connell and Matt Gutierrez behind cassell

Every other team in the league triples Randy Moss we leave him singled up. Boy coaching really sucks today. Jason Allen is being made to look like a B@#%%. Way to help out your players coach

The Beef Sez:I COULD SMELL THAT SECONDARY BEING BURNT ALL THE WAY UP HERE AND IAM IN NOSE BLEED SECTION

Exposed-- today-- Mando!!!!!!!????

The only reason he was a 1st rnd pick, is cause Nick Satan loves SEC guys!!!

Ok Mando, what about Will on Moss and let J ALlen take Welker ?

Gotta answer back to them with a score here

If we double Moss we can't blitz. If we don't blitz we don't get any pressure. We need pressure against the rookie QB. One or the other.

Miami can't stop the New England passing game. Pure and simple.

This game has been back and forth so far. Lets just remeber that we own the 4th quarter. Keep matching them score for score and we will win it late.

hey mando this whole defense is horrible.your singling out ..allen is out of control.cassell has all day to throw,no pass rush welker is catching everything on the other dbs

These Sundays just keep more and more nerve wracking.

WHY ARENT WE PRESSING RANDY MOSS? WHY ARENT WE PRESSING RANDY MOSS? WHY ARENT WE PRESSING RANDY MOSS? WHY ARENT WE PRESSING RANDY MOSS? WHY ARE WE PRESSING RANDY MOSS? WHY ARENT WE PRESSING RANDY MOSS? have i enthusized my point enough???????????????????????

Keep Jason Allen on Moss, but give safety help. I have no problem with that, but give the help. Hey, give us a shoot out. When was the last time we were in one of these? Go, get them.

Just got here so I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this but Belichicks crew came up with a very smart game plan against our D. Keeping Joey off of the field as much as possible running the shotgun and attack our weaker dbs in Allen and Culver.

No huddle. No huddle.

"These Sundays just keep more and more nerve wracking." Nice to have something wo worry about again...

That pass to Ginn was dangerous. Can't go back to well with that - will get an INT

Paul, did you see the last drive? Of course I'm singling out Allen. He's given up two TDs today.

People are making plays, it's Allen who is being ISOLATED! and it's good game planning by NE. Our coaches have to adjust!!

six million $ still well invested

Ginn playing w/ confidence.

nice ted ginn

Need a LITTLE more ZIP on 10 yard throws pleaze.

The beautiful thing about this is the Patriots can't stop Miami.

OH MAN! the franchise!

Jake Long is down. Not good.

Man, who is the back up tackle? Anthony Alabi? Geez...

Long is hurt

The Beef Sez:UR RIGHT DIERDORFF IS A GIANT TOOL.

Long down, not good. whose the backup LT? Long will be out at least a play.

oh My God Jake Long is injured....

Thank you people. Some of you never dissapoint with your endless whining and second guessing. It must be a joy to watch a game with you. 'Oh my god WTF THEY SUCK'!!!! 'Yippeee we scored, we're the best again'! I'm out.
