Dolphins beat SF 14-9 in another heart-stopper

The final minute was not good for the palpitations but the Dolphins did it again today at Dolphins Stadium. They beat the San Francisco 49ers 14-9.

The Dolphins continue to keep pace in this wild and wacky playoff race. Wow.

Chad Pennington completed 12 of 19 passes for 156 yards with two touchdowns to lead the offense. But it was the defense that led this charge.

Miami's D has not allowed a TD in 12 quarters. That's three consecutive games without giving up a TD.

And, fittingly, the game ended with a defensive exclamation point as Joey Porter sacked SF quarterback Shaun Hill to seal the victory.

Good stuff, folks! Exciting stuff!

Armando, can you please make the coaching staff justify that sweep call????????? I would really know what the hell they were thinking on that one.. A sweep on a team with the fastest linebackers in the nfl... takes us out of the middle of the field and loses us 3 yards. Resulting in a FG attempt that was short by one inch.. Musta been one hell of a brain fart. Otherwise great game and great coaching

Mando,
how many sacks does Porter have on the opponent's last drive this year? I think at least 3.

There defense is playing good, but their offense needs some kind of spark. Regardless, a win is a win. Too bad the Jets won too.

Impenetrable Defense. Thank you Chad Pennington. Unstoppable BIGFISH!!!! Any doubters left?

ONE MORE THING:
Whoever said the dolphins dont look like a playoff team because of this game... DID YOU SEE THE SCORE OF THE COLTS GAME???? They just barely beat the lions,, are you saying that they arent a playoff team? Every game is a battle.. San fran has had a lot of tough breaks this year. they are a good team.. They came down to the last second with the cardinals as well,, A team that destroyed us and has already sealed its playoff spot, and possible a first round bye...

hey chace just go jump of a bridge already you idiot! the Phins won be happy!!!

My heart can't take these close games but what a way to end the home finale. Not pretty but effective. 9 wins. Who whould have thunk it? Part 1 of the 3 pt trilogy accomplished. Next stop...KC.

What was Ginn's stat line?

to everyone saying "ugly win" "we're not a playoff team" and all that....

any team can beat any other team any given Sunday (see Jets losing to Raiders AND these same Niners)... in the words of Parcells, you are what your record says you are.

We're a 9-5 team Baby

Maybe we should hope for the playoffs, cause with our schedule next year and the way we've won games it's not looking good...

Too close for a home game against a bad team. But a W is a W. Phins exceeded my expectations at 9-5!

GO PHINS!

Ginn: 2 rec. for 6 yards... 1 drop

EL GURU WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT????????? Will you please read any of my comments before you call me out!

sealed a winning season no matter what now. Keep going though

Hennings play calling in the 3rd and 4th sucked.

Can I get a "hell yea" from Dolfan NATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EL GURU i wanna hear you justify you comment that i am not loyal to this team??????

Pathetic second half offense, we're dreaming if we think we can make the playoffs like that. The defense is there, but this offense is a disaster.

woooooooooooooo 9-5 woooooooooooooo

The Ginn stat line is 2-8, to go with the 1-18 against the Bills. Chad is not looking his way nearly as much. Pennington is trying to get ginn involved but he can never be relyed upon to get open.

EARL PLEASE READ

I still think we can sort out the gameplanning for our running game. The wildcat may need to prowl its way back on the play calling. Ronnie needs more carries and Chad had to start using London or Cobbs more in the passing game. The niners have a good defense and we did another good job of game management, however how can we progress with this kind of offensive ineptitude ? Porter deserved to throw his helmet, LETS GET IT ON !!!!! 9 wins and counting.

quit crying its a blog, we just won.. be happy. we were awful last year and it finally looks like were a team with some sort of direction, lets just hope it strays that way

ARMANDO we should start up root against patriots blog!!!!!! whos with me!!

LETS JUST ENJOY THE W-I-N!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE CAN ARGUE AMONG OURSELVES DURING THE WEEK! WE ARE 9-5 AND IN CONTROL OF OUR DESTINY! THEY ALL CANT BE PRETTY BUT WE'VE GOT TO ENJOY THEM AND LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES! LETS RIDE DOLFANS!

LOL, Chase, post the link

holy hell a winning season! i can belive the bills chocked like that. playoffs here we come!

Im looking around at the AFC teams and see the Texans beating the Titans, the Jets almost lost to the Bills, the Colts struggled against the Lions. It sounds old, but there are no easy games anymore in the NFL. If we win ugly against the Chiefs and Jets, who cares ?

Houston beats Tennesee

I want to know why we are running the ball to the left on 3rd and 4 that took us out of FG range. Some of the play calling is getting us in trouble. Ronnie B gets 10 - 12 touchs a game. We need to get to running the ball again and give him more opportunites. We will never survive the first playoff game without it. Lately the play calling is way off.

Well, Good game, all being said in the end. But, I will say this: Miami cannot and will not beat the "lucky jets" if what we saw today is the best they can muster from the running game. It's as simple as that. The one thing we will have going for is is the "jest" have Favre! He is (easily) the sngle-most overrated qb in history. Easy to read. The only reason we didn't beat them opening week is because of the lack of arm strength of Pennington on that last drive in from the 10 yd line. Anyway, it's been nothing but "me me ME!!" since favre came into the league. He's cost his teams many a chance to get further into post season due to his "gotta be the (*^*&%^ hero" selfishness. So, the running game better jump up and the "D" will have to find a way to put Mr. heroics-glutton on his keester!

HENNING IS OLDDDDDDDDDD SCHOOL....

NEEDS TO GO BYE-BYE...

NEVER DID LIKE HIM.

"Nice job" to our D. That's three games without allowing a TD- amazing!

Typical Miami blow-out,ha! We are still a few players away from being a serious playoff contender.

I don't like our chances @KC next week. But the Jets chances are just as bad.

Oh, and...this "wildcat" crock has run its course! Time to shake the Jr. high act and go to pro ball :)

If NE loses today, our game next weeks has absolutely no effect on our playoffs chances

hey cry baby chace here are your idiotic comments secons guessing the coaching staff...

Armando, can you please make the coaching staff justify that sweep call????????? I would really know what the hell they were thinking on that one.. A sweep on a team with the fastest linebackers in the nfl... takes us out of the middle of the field and loses us 3 yards. Resulting in a FG attempt that was short by one inch.. Musta been one hell of a brain fart.

Get a life you idiot, the phins staff has done a great job with this team. Now take a hike jive turkey!!!

Its been a GREAT season. I would be happy to if they beat the Jets or at least BEAT them UP. But as for playoffs, IF they make it anything can happen but i have a feeling it wont be pretty and our tricks are out of the bag.

*week (against KC)

LET'S run the wing T..

It may work for a few games and then we can
really do old school that i am sure Dan Henning has in his play book run left..run right and then run up the middle and then PUNT.

aj you're borderline negative.......the wildcat produced the 16yard run in the 4th.

SD could beat KC in the final seconds... inside the 10 with 30 sec. left

wonder if tuna fish is pleased with ginn's play thus far.

I wonder though if we'd still have 9 win right now if we'd had gone with b.quinn instead.........

LOL SD beats KC

Another Good Win 4 The Mammals, 1 More Game Till The Big Showdown In The Medowland, Keep It Up Ill Root 4 You 1 More Week...then Its Jets, Jets, Jets Time.

Ronnie brown had a 6 yard per run average it boggles the mind why this stud doesnt get 20+plus carries down the stretch!! 9-5 1st place with 2 huge games left im in football heaven!

miami vs. atlanta in the most unlikely superbowl in history?

Spoke too soon.

KC drives 50 yards in 10 seconds (nice clock operator) and will kick FG to win it.

Kick NG... SD NOW beats KC LOL

If we don't eat the cheese next week in KC the game with the jets will be primetime. We could not askfor anything better! I'd love to beat the jets in NY in december! That will be my x-mas gift. Dolphins, Dolphins, Dolphins!

Jeeesusss Chrrrissst Marc/marcia You Are A True Sl@t....

Yo A.j., Come on up to the big city for the big game bro., I'll get you the ticket.

I hate to be critical but we haven't even attempted to make the run a priority throughout the game and then suddenly expect to turn it on...which we did...but it was really too late. With a lead I would have thought we would have at least tried to run it. It looked good hen we did.
We'll need to run against the Jets to win. Period. I feel like Ronnie needs more ball to him to get him into the game sooner. But am glad to win. We have our first winning season in years. And are actually playing meaningful games. Thats nice. Life is good.

Hey A.j. The meadowlands is not a place for a 8pm game , temps hover around 15 to 20 degress with a 20 to 30 mph wind making it feel like 5 to 10 degrees..burrrrrr

I'd love too but my wife is 9 months plus preggo with our first. We're expceting anyday now....so you know she's a raging woman right now. If I told her that she'd cut my throat! But next year your on!

even if we lose our next two games, i consider this a successful season......Just kidding>>:)

I'm convinced that the reason that there are so many empty seats in the stadium is because Dolfans are dropping off like flies with heart attacks...

Ray Lewis is on the "clear"!

EL GURU
are you really that pathetic to cut out my last sentence and use what works for you to cut me down?
You must be a reporter for ESPN... lmao

Comgratulations A.j. Yeah Its Better You Stay Home Then.

This game was just another stepping stone to the final game of the season where the 10-5 Dolphins face off against the 10-5 Jets. Hope it's a nationwide game, i'll be in Tampa for Xmas.

9-5, thats 8 more wins than last year, GO DOLPHINS!!!
