Chiefs leading Dolphins 28-24 to start 3rd Q

Well, the good news is the Dolphins defense is alive and well. The team that averaged slightly less than 16 points per game the last three games has 24 points at the half.

Problem is the defense didn't show for the first half. The Chiefs have scored 28 points on the Miami defense -- yeah, the defense that did not allow a TD in 12 consecutive quarters. The Chiefs threw an interception on their offensive first possession.

And then they scored four touchdowns their next four possessions. Terrible effort. Terrible tackling. Terrible coverage.

Chad Pennington is 15 of 22 for 135 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. Joe Montana, I mean Tyler Thigpen is 12 of 23 for 223 yards, two passing touchdowns and one running touchdown.

OK, join me for the second half continuation of the live blog in the comments section.

Uh, you mean offense, right?

what an embarassment.

first

Well, the offense is playing as well as it has all year...Anyone who thought we were a powerhouse must have been asleep the past 5 Sundays

I am just so frustrated. We had control of the game and we have lost it. NOW, KC gets the ball first and have the wind.

We are in a lot of trouble unless the defense steps up...

Are we in for another late season let down? I sure hope not. Its not enough to be better than last year -- b/c there are no guarantees for next year. Smok'em while you've gott'em. We need this D to step up. We need the coaches to make better decisions. We need the team to play with more emotion and get after it. We need the leaders to lead. It never ceases to amaze me how we can make average players and teams look so great. In the end, though, I really don't care how they win -- as long as they win.

I guess third will do : )

come on fins we need the d to shut down kansas city so we can have the show down in the meadowlands

this is for the season. the D has to step up.

I cannot believe how negative the comments are right now. Oh ye of little faith.

NE is absolutely LAMBASTING the Cards

I bet u guys want to give me my extension now after seeing how much I mean to this team... channing crowder

This is all on the D!

"The dolphins defense is alive and well".......LMAO! Yeah.....whatever that means.
No running game, no sacks, no defense......vs the Chiefs! Pathetic. Week-to-week league.

The saints got eliminated from the playoffs and they are crushing the lions. MIA has a chance and they are getting spanked by a bunch of KC scrubs.

horrible. Mando, you bring up a great point. The anouncers just gave the stst about polite and they throw that Fade rout. This may be the one boys.

Thigpen is absolutely humiliating our obviously overhyped defense. Joey and the gang have lost any right to thump their chests. Playing against 3 crappy teams in a row can make any team look good...

They aren't "negative comments!!!" Take off your "Aqua shades" and deal with reality!

this game is very similar to the 2nd Pats game this year. Things never did improve after the half.

we're not being negative mando. if we were you'd delete us! I need Joey to Take over!

the thing that troubles me is when Thigpen has scrambled, the defenders don't look FASTER than him.

Pats Giving a beatdown to a team that smoked the dolphins 38 to 0.

nice half time speach coach way to get them fired up!

SEcondary continues to be shredded. Nice containment Joey Porter.

It can only get better....I hope

We are done...and for the record Mando, Bell is not worth what you think and Crowder is not missed- he is soft.

OH MY GOD, SPARANO OBVIOUSLY SAID NOTHING THAT MATTERED.

Mando, you have the least faith out of all of us. You get assaulted every week because of your negativity and lack of faith lol. Plus, KC is moving the ball at will, just like that play with LJ.

Another missed tackle. Ball game fellas!

If I begin to count missed tackles NOW, will I be able to reach 100 before the game is over?

We forgot how to tackle

Again, we have consisently done MUCH worse in 2nd half

LET'S GET OUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT BEING A FINFAN STARTED ALREADY......THE OFFSEASON


WOW WHAT A RUN.....GO CHIEFS

Moving it at will.

Play coverage...boyz.

NY, there was your blitz.

im trying not to be negative but they arent making it easy

Dolphin Defense really is bad

season over

It seems very clear the Dolphins are seeing an offensive system they have not seen all season. And they are tentative.

It's like the Pats against Wildcat in the first game.

pathetic effort. this team is being exposed as the fraud they were.

Worst defensive effort ever

It is sad that they would rather be warm and not hit in the cold than make the playoffs.

Two former phins o-lineman dominating us, pathetic.

can you say outphysicalled?

GREAT HALFTIME PEP TALK

Missed tackle on a sure sack

What ever was said at half time has obviously fallen on deaf ears. Absolutley shocking

Blitz every down...Blitz blitz blitz

WTH is porter doing letting RB's get outside of him? MAKE A PLAY!

Do you think we can stop them here

we can only give up a fg.. and watch for the TE.

Yo Aj, Whats Going On With That D, I Wanted Mia. To Come Into Ny For All The Marbels

3rd down!!!! Holy S!!!

I BET THEY GO FOR IT ON 4TH DOWN

Big stop...conservative play call.

Herm Edwards did us a favor there

Dolphins D really let down this team today

A STOP!!! IT'S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!!!!

something only morons say " WELL I KNOW WE ONLY WON 2 GAMES THIS YEAR, BUT THE LAST TWO GAMES WE WON WE CAN BUILD ON NEXT YEAR"

YOU FREAKING IDIOTS......

I HOPE THEY LOSE THE NEXT TWO AND WIN ONLY 6 GAMES NEXT YEAR........

fake kick coming

At least the halftime adjustments worked. KC now scoring FGs instead of TDs.
