Dolphins defeat NY Jets, 30-25!

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Wipe that sweat from your brow because this one was a three-hour thrill ride.

The Dolphins, riding two, count 'em, two kickoff return touchdowns by Ted Ginn Jr., one fumble return TD by Jason Taylor, and some heart-stopping defense play by the defense on the final drive, beat the New York Jets today.

The Dolphins improve their record to 3-4 and 3-0 in the AFC East. The Jets are now 4-4.

The Dolphins are living dangerously as their offense had only one TD. The defense yielded scores on three of New York's final four drives.

The offense gained a grand total of 104 yards while the defense allowed 378. The Dolphins had the ball only 25:54 to New York's 34:06.

But those are just details that do not trump important things -- like the final score.

Amazingly, I just got back from the locker rooms and while the Dolphins were fairly humble about winning, Jets linebacker Bart Scott was a bit of a jerk after losing. Judge for yourself.

"They're a great team," Scott said of Miami. "They'll probably contend for the Super Bowl. They have a tremendous offense -- great running backs, a great quarterback, a great tight end. They are stacked across the board. I'm serious. They are great."

And later he continued.

"They have a tremendous offense and they showed it today. They are Super Bowl contenders and they will probably take it all the way."

bobbyd12 . LMAO ! Welfare fans . alot them looked they were going straight to work for their overnight garbage truck routes.

Is Kerry Rhodes a dick or what?

i am sick of people giving sparano a hard time. he gives an average team a chance to win every week. i love his attitude. i love his approach. at least he HAS a plan. you can disagree with it if you want but this team has stucture now. i have faith this team will compete every week, get better and eventually win the super bowl because of sparano. so f you sparano haters. get a clue. run your fantasy football team and your madden franchise and leave the real football to real football people.
by the way or secondary might be rough now, but with vontae, sean smith and now clemons getting quality pt, watch out in a couple years, baby!

Dickless is more like it....

J E T S...Just End The Season!
Ginn showed he as speed, and should get the game ball today...BUT they need to think long & hard before making him the No 1 receiver...
Enjoy the victory, Guys!

Looking for an Oakland win over San Diego to help the are cause in the AFC

DOLPHINS4LIFE IS THE BEST FAN ON THIS BLOG;
1-SMART
2-NEVER JUMP ON AWAGON AS NJ PHIN DOES
3-ALWAYS POSITIVE ABOUT THE TEAM
4-NE WAS BEHIND GINN IN HIS DARKEST DAYS NOT LIKE THE SO CALLED SPORT WRITERS .

TED GINN THE HERO W/ SILK HANDS AND LEGS OF STEAL ....HIS SECOND TD THE BEST EVER TO WATCH AGAIN AND AGAIN

Chase , if you think this is great miami offense because it scored 30 plus ponts in 3 or 4 straight games , then you're buggin my friend. LMAO ! This offense has one of the worst wr corps , te corps ( fasanor will get bette ) and OL the struggles in pass protection.

Marc, you have to be one of the biggest tools I have ever encountered. Wait a minute, nope, that would be Ziggy but you come in at a close second. We're trying to enjoy this win over the hated Jets and you two are in here picking the team apart? And then you go as far as agreeing with an opposing player?!!! The same player who said he wanted to hospitalize our QB?!! We know the team isn't great yet so what's your point!? The trifecta was completely honest when they came in telling us it would take up to 4 years remember?! Parcells said when looking at the team for the first time "we have a punter and a running back, that's it". But now in the second year you're expecting what? You're a f***ing A-hole traitor. TRAITOR!

NJPhin fan

I still think we need a upgrade at TE and fasano is just ok. If we and I think we still need to resign him but at a inexpensive price because we need a succsessor at tight end.

FWIW---I was just perusing some Jets blogs and several posters there were very impressed with the way Vontae Davis tackles---called him fierce.

Davis & Smith need to improve, obviously, but I like what I've seen thus far.

Armando,

I have to say you were right in your blog concerning Ginn, his speed and abilty to be a fast return specialist were evident today. I think as you stated that he needs something to feel good about, I think the 203 yds on the two returns accomplished that.

Any thoughts about the defense and what we need to do against Brady who always seems to be able to throw down the field "a la" manning and brees?

NJ phin is a trashy fan ,he hates ted ginn.
he's a fasano lover

Hey Bart Scott is just like the coach! A dumbass trash talker who can't back up all of his BS so he throws temper tantrums. That is exactly why they will never win a superbowl. No class and no clue.

There's a pooper at every party, can you guess wich 2 they are? We know

Do you want me to get on the negatives today or tommorrow ? I'll give you one in the defense needs alot of work. Particually at LB. we need to get on bess a little bet. That's 2 games in a row he had the momentum changing turnover. I'm not even mentioning his dropped passes.

Vonte Davis held his own, and yes that kid can hit big time!!! Smith and Davis are gonna be rocks for a loonngg time

AND Bart Scott threw his teammates under the bus! Basically by saying they shut down the Miami offense and did THEIR job he puts all of the blame on his special teams and Westhoff who is one of the best st guys in the NFL! And, If their offense is so f***ing good why didn't they score when they had the ball inside the twenty for the win?! Hey but at least their defense had a good game TODAY. I guess they were feeling high and mighty after shutting down the lowly Raiders but he seems to have forgotten all about his defenses struggles the previous 4 weeks.

That's what Sporano said at the end of the game in the locker room, " I don't want a team that just talks, I want team that plays, and you guys played hard tonight".

In honor of his gargantuan-balls KR performance..........

and as for Bart Scott..........You go eat a d!ck.

And S.Smith took that ball away from Edwards too.

I worked saw only saw couple mins of game, I'm curious about Tobor and Gibril, how did they play???

I thought of a great way to get Ginn involved in the offense without risking him giving the ball to the defense. What if we ran the wildcat with White at QB and Ginn in motion ala Ricky. A speed Wildcat personnel group. white could hand of to Ginn. Sneak the keeper up the gut. Pass to Ginn. Fake the pass the Ginn and pass run the counter, or pass counter to Haynos.

THANK GOD CROWDER DIDN'T PLAY .
THANK GOD FASANO DIDN'T FUMBLE.
THANK GINN IS A FIN .

Guys we know this team has a ways to go okay? For f***s sake why can't people just enjoy life without always having to find a way to crap on the rest of our heads?! ENJOY THE WIN TODAY!! WE'RE NOT GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL AND WE ALL KNOW IT! THIS SHOULD NOT STOP US FROM ENJOYING A SWEEP OVER OUR MOST HATED RIVALS!!

NJ PHIN FAN. I didnt say this was a great NFL offense. I said the offense is playing great. Yeah we are missing a great WR. But we have amazing runningbacks dont we? Yes our O-line struggles in pass protection ( FYI the majority of the sacks today were coverage sacks), but they are one hell of a running offense are they not? They sure as hell are giving us a good chance to win every week.

I WAS THERE AND IT WAS THE BEST THING I EVER SAW!!!!

MY FIRST GAME!!!

MY BEST FRIEND GOT US TIKETS11111

IT WAS HARD AT TIMES !!!!!

@SSHOLES HITTIN ME WITH PEANUTS...

I know have been hard on the guy, I will be hard on any guy the drops balls at the wrong time (like Bess - that's not the point right now), but my hats off to Ted Ginn. What an excellent performance. Two displays of raw speed - I mean blazing speed. GREAT JOB TEDDY - you were the man today. I hope it continues.

Yeah we struggled offensively, BUT we also had three less posessions because of TWO kickoff returns for a TD and ONE defensive TD's...who knows what we may or may not have done. We did drive down when we had to and scored a TD on the pass to Haynos!

That being said I agree with some of the posters that coaching is lacking, and does Sparano get us over the hump? Who knows...but great freakin win!

GO FINS!!

Jersey Chase is exactly right about the sacks. They were ALL coverage sacks and you were there so you had to have seen that. Henne did a great job not trying to force it and taking the sack. It's obvious to all of us that we need a WR to open up the passing game. That will come next offseason. There was noone available this year that fit the Dolphins plans for the future and the ones that did came at too high of a price.

Let me correct myself. They weren't "all" coverage sacks. There were 2 or 3 sacks where the defense just outnumbered our blockers, it happens.

The offense sure gave miami a chance to win today. NOT ! LOL :)

Hey Bart Scott...what does it say about your team when you lose TWICE to us and get SWEPT...sucks when you can't ride Ray Lewis' coat tails anymore huh?!

also , the majority os sacks were NOT coverage sacks. Henne had no Time ! The ol pass protection was poor.

I WAS AT THE GAME GIVING THEM THE SWEEP!!!!

The ol pass protection was so poor , miami tried to roll out the qb and ol to buy time and still got killed. so give me a break. It wasn't just on the sack plays either.

MY BEST FRIEND IS RUNIIN HER HANDS THROUGH MY DREADS AND RUBING MY NECK..

ARMANDO????????????????????????????????????????
YO????????????????????????????????????????
ARMANDO????????????????????????????????????????

ARE YOU THERE?????

DID YOU HEAR ME SCREAM GO DOLPHINS WHILE EVERY BODY WAS GETTIN READY FOR THEIR J-E-T-S CHANT

IF NOT MAYBE I NEED TO STOP SMOKIN THAT OHHHHHH WEEEEEEEEEEEE

I cannot possibly explain how happy I am today! This is great! Now we have to worry about new England!

Next up for the Air breathers.....THE PATS... Need all the luck in the world with this one, By the way congrats to Ted (Tyrannosaurus rex arms)Ginn for his "Ballsy" Play today..

Tedd Ginn RULES!!!!

Ted Ginn, wow! I guess there really is a thin line between love and hate.

Power of prayer?!? seriously? How about congratulating the defense on their hard work paying off with a big stop.

Overall, the defense played pretty well given they were on the field for almost the entire third quarter.

This team realistically can/should win 7 of the 9 games left..yes, we have to come up big against the Pats and split at worse, but we are better then every team on the schedule left...Pitt is the last game and who knows if they will even go all out to win.

NJPhin Fan

Thats a very good defense even with out Jenkins in the middle and so the last thing the Dolphins needed to do was hang on to the ball and Henne never turned it over! Thats huge on the road and help lead to victory.

Not saying the Dolphins gave D something to work with not sure who said that. But we didnt put them in much negative positions like in the past. JT made a play. Our defense made the last stand and it was victory formation after that.

Our young secondary is starting to look better and the rookies are playing well.

Davis got int and saved a two point conversion and Sean Smith man ohh man had a pic six waiting for him early on he dropped the ball and they kicked a FG. But you can see the difference there and Davis was excellent in run support to the outside.

Defense needs to show up vs pats next week. Rex boy figured out how to stop wildcat but underestimated Teddy and JT. Who would of thought Teddy set a record today? Keepem at Return man. And hartline as deep threat.anyone have a game plan to Win vs pats?

WHERE ALL THE TED GINN HATERS.TIME FOR A DOUBLE MEATBALL SUB W/GAOAT MEAT FARMERS .

LOL@Dolphins4life. Who said anything about henne or him holding on to the ball ? I'm talking about the ol and it poor pass protection . We know the dolphins never do anything wrong in your eye but jeez ! give me a break.

Then in the fourth quarter the Dolphins offense orchastrated a long drive for td to Hanos. Henne played wella and did not turnover the ball. That gave the D some rest and condensed the quarter. Sparano goofed with the two point but made up for it when he need to call those time outs and forced the jets hand.

Bart Scott...what an a-hole.

Ziggy,
I agree with you but just for today, let's just enjoy this win. I saw this as another loss. Pleasant win. I'll worry about us losing to the Pats in a couple of days. ;o) :oD

I know what love more than the phins winning a game? It is winning three straight against the jets. Hey jet fan did you hear that three straight. Hey bart did you hear that three, two of which you are responsible for. You sure have been an upgrade. ( deep down inside I know he is an upgrade thought) - just excited

Here NJPHIN

Yes the O-Line played poor. I think we still need upgrade at center but Grove better than Satele. Their defense hade good game plan against the wildcat. And they had 9 in the box, but yes the O-line didnt play well.

Im just saying Henne still came through and had a nice good drive early fourth.

Nj phin fan - who got the W?

Scott's sarcasm may be right - we are not a great team. But I know one thing, we are better than the stinkin Jets!

On to foxborough and the Patsies we got the ball rolling and last year we were 2-4 and now the streak starts! 3-4 after seven games and the toughest schedule in the frkn league and now the easyer part of schedule after the patsies I'm telling you we can do this we have a shot!

Lets Golphins! Woooohoooo!

REX RYAN LOOKED LIKE A SHELTER MANGER NOT AN NFL TEAM'S HEAD COACH .HE ALWAYS LOOKS LIKE A THUG .

Yeah Dolphins 4 life Jersey's talking about the o-line, not Henne. O-line struggled in the passing game is his point. My counter would be there aren't too many o-lines in the NFL that don't struggle against the Jets defense. They have some very good players over there. Our o-line has struggled in the passing game but has also looked great in certain games. They definitely need to be more consistent but I still can't believe people want to talk about the bad points of the team after todays win. Especially when we all know where they need to improve. This isn't rocket science people. The points people are bringing up about improvement should be obvious to even a first year fan.

NYScott

Got it I'm a little saucy but fired up and I saw a good game by Henne not like last game versusu Jets.

Absolutley right about that Jets defense they are real deal and shut down the cat' but kept passing and Henne not turing the ball over and not forcing anything thats not there is the next best thing. Dont dig your own grave is what I'm getting at and it apears as those days which the Dolphins of the past are all to familiar with.
