Dolphins survive scare, beat Bucs, 25-23

It wasn't pretty. It wasn't a dominant performance. But it counts.

And so the Dolphins delivered a 25-23 victory Sunday in what reminds of victories over Seattle and Buffalo and St. Louis and San Francisco a year ago.

These are not masterpieces. But they are also not Ls.

The Dolphins had to drive 77 yards in five plays that took 1:04 to take the final two-point lead. The only reason those heroics were necessary is because quarterback Chad Henne threw an interception that set the Bucs off on a 26-yard drive that gave them a 23-22 lead.

Regardless, it is a victory.

And that's important because the Dolphins find themselves with a 4-5 record and in second place in the AFC East. The Dolphins and Jets both have 4-5 records but Miami beat New York twice this year.

Me

great football day jets and pats lose dolphins win whats up with ronnie

bottom line it is a win not a pretty win but it counts. Dan Henning needs to go with Ginn . stat line for Ginn no catches one drop on the first play for the fins and the other did not get his feet in bounds. Henning's play calling is BAD to many double end arounds that do not work. Also Pat White that experiment is done BAD DRAFT PICK. If the brain trust can not see we need a game changing receiver then they need to go back to dallas.

Why call that time out with 14 seconds left, letting them have 1-2 more plays to try and win the game? Let it run down, then kick as time expires...what where you thinking...dumb a**? TB leads the league as a team in kick off returns!!

If there is a fumbled snap on the field goal attempt, you can try it again if you recover. That is, if it is not 4th down. That is why they called the timeout with 10 seconds left.

Also, I agree with trying to pick up the first down by passing. It was the execution of the play that failed. Too many times, I have seen the Dolphins try to run the ball in similar situations. They tried to be aggressive for a change, and some fans are still critical. If they had run the ball and not succeeded on that play, the coaches would have been called conservative.

By the way, the same fans who are saying that they should not have passed the ball late in the 4th quarter, are also saying that they should have tried for the end zone at the end of the first half. If Henne had thrown an interception in the end zone at the end of the half, what would you fans say then? In other words, if it works, then everything is fine. If it does not work, the coaches are wrong. Really???

I don't blame the interception on Henne, I blame it on the stupid a$$ play calling where they have him roll to the short side of the field and try to hit the one or two receivers that were sent out on the parttern and are guarded by 4 defenders.

Stupid play calling like that all year. All they do is cut the field into a quarter and retard the development of the QB by not allowing him to read the entire field.

I believe this team can pass the ball IF they would call normal pass plays like at the end of the game. Bess, Camirillo, and Hartline can all get open.

It is a testament to the offensive line that
Miami can run the football at all. There is no
threat of the deepball as Ginn and Henne
are not on the same page and he would more than
likely drop the ball unless he is uncontested
with no one around him to pressure him into
a drop. Any traffic around him seems to be a sure distraction to cause a drop. Without a legitimate deep threat teams are daring us to
throw the ball knowing we cant,not that we wont.

Questions:

1)Who was the genius who called a pass play when all we needed to do is run the ball and if we did not make a first down we would just punt

2)Also which Einstein called a time out with 14 seconds instead of letting the clock run down to 5, allowing the Bucks back on the field after the field goal

3)Last why is the coaching staff making so many bone-head mistakes in every game?
