Dolphins-Chargers tied to start 3rd Q

The Chargers are doing a great job of keeping the Dolphins in this one.

The team had five red zone trips last week and that resulted in four field goal and one giving up the ball on downs.

They have two red zone trips this week and have made a field goal and missed a field goal. They also fumbled inside the 20 yard to set up the Dolphins for Miami's lone score on a Dan Carpenter field goal.

So we're tied at 3-3 and it was encouraging for Miami to see the San Diego fans boo the home team off the field at halftime.

Looking like last week. The game is there for the taking and the Dolphins just don't seem to want it. Offense is last week's defense. One thing they need to do is get some new cleats for the defense. I lost count on how many people I saw fall down. At least they are getting pressure that is a good sign.

1) very good job by the D
2) play calling in red zone remains inept. Why can't we just score like anyone, with quick inside slants or corner fades?

i agree jax new cleats atleastwe held them to two fg tries for 3 pts we never seem to be able to get the offense and defense on the same page

Offence doesn’t get it done…….
New QB Next week.

If we end up losing this game, bc the offense struggles. The Henne era must began.

No ext. for noodle arm! Geeezz...

Some halftime stats:

first downs Miami 8, SD 10
Dolphins 114 net yards to 155 for SD.
Rush yards 68 for Miami to 19 for SD.
Miami has 25 plays on offense to SD 33.

Ronnie Brown has 12 carries for 58 yards

Pennington 6 of 9 for 46 yards.

Pennington can only do what he can do, but it's his limitations which force this nut-less coaching staff to be uber-conservative. that and the lack of a credible pass-catching threat who doesn't line up in the backfield.

ok we need some TDs. the drives are very encouraging. if we can keep them up eventually we will learn to finish those off.

Lets play some Football!

Defense playing well...except WAllen falling down all over the place.

Ronnie running hard...need TDs not field goals this half.


You can't be explosive with constant checkdowns. This tells me they really don't confidence in Henne. Too bad.

Offense better come out smoking!!!

commercial breaks are getting worse and worse

we're on our way to stopping play on second down in order to go to break

And not weed!

We are struggling but Chargers in even worse state. Confident we will grind it out in second half

Pat White can throw i promise. Watched him every week at VT. He needs to throw it next time instead of handing it off. He reminds me of Marino when he first came in and hard a hard time with the handoffs also. Chad needs to hook up with Camarillo more and somebody long. Camo will catch anything!

new qb for chargers

i like pennington a lot but if we lose one or two more all im saying is i want to see what henne has. if for some reason he isnt the man i would like to know before the next draft.

Billy Volek?

fins gets the ball first....lets see what kind of adjustments they make at halftime.

He is good, but not Philip Rivers.

rivers out?

Is Rivers hurt Mando?

Here we go!

Told ya Y.Bell cracked that rib, still rivers is a warrior

Gareth? You from Tally?

volek warming up?...... what was the damage to chad's nose?

rivers warming up well on sideline so looks like he is playing though sore

I don't understand putting camarillo back there.

He's not fast (return) and he's not big (blocking). Don't get that one.

im so tired of hearing this heene talk its not up to us the coaches don't care what we say so give it a rest already heard all i care about it

Let's go fins. Let's give Sparano a reason to celebrate.

come on dolphins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good basic football

That was not a pass but rather a rush for Bess.

Things I noticed in the MIA/SD 94 rerun on NFL network.

1. Marino was amazing.
2. I wondered why we never got Marino a running back. I mean, he elevated the play of ANY receiver on the field, but man, he would have been so much more dangerous if they didn't KNOW he would pass on every critical down.
3. We have not had a QB with either a quick release OR a decent arm in some time.
4. Miami's defense has sucked for so long. Even when it was dominating in the regular season, it sucked when it counted.
5. My two favorite teams, Miami Dolphins and Montreal Canadiens, have accomplished their most precious franchise accomplishments before I was born. When will you show me the money??
6. I hate Jimmy Johnson.

Like a well oiled machine!

Take it back

thats a good play call. lets get aggressive

Awful job there on 1st down.

Po white trash, no Scotland

Link please!!!! The UK one went offline

comeon block for him!

What a suprise...A Pass to the running back!


Dolphins doing every they can to slow the SD pass rush. Lots of quick passes, screens.

I'd like to see some more wildcat

If the WC is # 1 in the NFL in YPsnap...why abandon it for CP with a bloody nose like Bobby Layne?

3 and out

What is all this screen stuff?


Oh ya


Our Offense looks very uninspired since that opening drive. Very sad. Doubt our Defense will actually "win" this one for us

Henne time, as long as White isn't active, not sure.

Uh-oh, pat white time.

Go fins. Very impressive.

YES! Penny may be injured!

3and out damnit

Let the Henne Era Begin!!!!!

penningtons hurt.
