Miami Dolphins lose to Buffalo, 31-14

ORCHARD PARK, N.J. -- This was a first.

The Dolphins had lost games before, no doubt about it. But lose to a team they should have beaten? Lose to a team overmatched and undermanned? Not under Bill Parcells, Tony Sparano and Jeff Ireland.

Until today.

Bills 31. Dolphins 14.

The offense is at fault. There were dropped passes, the blocking was spotty, and both Ricky Williams and Chad Henne threw interceptions. Henne threw three in the final two minutes.

The coaching is at fault. That Williams interceptions came on first-and-goal from the 2 yard line. And they threw, can you believe it? There were also the usual reverse when the running game is doing well and the one-on-one coverage in the secondary ... against Terrell Owens, who delivered a 51-yard game-clinching TD catch.

And the defense is at fault. This unit seemed slow, seemed mostly unable to apply a choke hold on a struggling opponent. They just stunk.

Now the Dolphins are 5-6.

It was an upset.

It was upsetting.

there he goes again.... what a idiot you are nj, please go to some other blog...

henne will be fine. But losing games because of bad coaching is hard to swallow. And this is not the first time this happened. US losing games this year because of bad calls and team generally not being ready. BP needs to take a serious look at both the coordinator positions this off season and put Sparano on Notice.

This is not our year but we'll be fine going forward

Boulder, ask NJ what's hard to swallow, I'am sure he's taken quite a few shots in his mouth.(if you know what i mean):) (not that theres anything wrong with that)

In the preseaon I made the comment that our ILBs are the worst in the league and the weakest part of this team. The starters are below average and we have no young players with any upside. I was indeed correct, this group is horrible. Channing Crowder is a lousy football player and at this point in his career I don't see that changing. This postion needs a complete overhaul in the offseason, even more so than WR.

Maybe a loss will wake em up! Hey dolphins, wake the hell up!

Is it me or is Keith Olbermann a tool??

Here we go folks! The Phins are creeping higher into the draft with every game they play.

NJ, for how critical you tend to be, how you can trumpet Fasano is beyond me. He finally shows up in week 12 and it deserves a post? He's as big a dissapointment as anyone on this team. And yes, I'm still very bitter about his week 1 performance.

Joisey Baby!

Ya, Sopranos, Bon Jovi, and Anthonay Fasano!

Pffff

And Tony Dungee is that creepy uncle that you don't want your young children near????

Menace , you PU**Y ! Speaking of come shots why don't you tell everybody how you post under the names tortured fan and Gopats , taking shots all over your face

Today was Channing Crowder's worst game by far too. And Ayodele is even worse.

Hate to agree with you Mange Keith Olbermann is a tool??
And a comunista!!!

Mark, Dont forget about Frank Sinatra,Alexander Graham Bell, They too are from "the garden state"

1-why some fans blame HEENE when it's clear he has no a player to shine in any game so far this season to the point nj cheering for fasano as he won the super bowl.

2- this is the THIRD GAME THAT COACH BUTCHED .
3-FINS SHOULD KEEP FIRE THE ENTIRE COACHING STAFF AND HIRE THE EX STEELERS COACH ,HE'S THE ONE TO FIRE THIS TEAM UP .

Alexander Graham Bell is Canadian

mark , Are you f'n kidding me. I reponded to the menace's post bashng fasano . also you were the one tooting how good the dolphins are and how they might make playoffs and lastly you should be the last one taking about a state in the good all USA . Canada ? CANADA ? LMFAO ! PFFFFT !

Sorry, but Dan Henning needs to go.. What is he smoking in that booth. The worst part is that Sparano cannot scream at him, because he is older than him, and he's Parcells buddy.

Drop Dan Henning!

Now NJ, Dont get upset, it's just good old fashion ribbing, And ive said it a million times, I dont have to post as other people, i only post as the Menace, you should Know this MAN....

The Dolphins are still heartbreakers. The NFL doesn't target my kind for their fan base anymore. I'm done. I'll find some other things to do on Sunday.

I never bashed Fasano, Don't have anything bad to say about him, he had a bad game in week 1, so what, ive seen multiple players have bad games week in and week out,STOP WITH YOUR CONSPARECY THERORES NJ...Your a buffoon..

why do we have to change personell after every play? soliai and the "bigs" must have run 2 miles on and off the field every down. we never get in a rythym on offense or defense; one play and youre out. sparano is a moron!!!!

Henne is not to blame for this game, but needs to start throwing away when he doesn't see anybody open. period!

and Sparano needs to get rid of Henning and hire Pennington as the o-coordinator.

NJ, the state of my country is a lot better than yours, so please. At least my country isn't using taxpayer money or printing money at nauseum to bail out our banks from their own self inflicted wounds. Believe me, economically, it's a lot better to be Canadian than American. But I'm not here to bash the USA, but New Jersey, just like even the other Americans here do. But hey, at least you aren't from Michigan or Buffalo.

And I'm a true fan so I expect the best possible results from my team. I wanted them to get every bit out of their roster that they could and get into the playoffs, if you want to criticize me for that, go ahead.

I will not EVER sit here and gloat in the defeats and setbacks they encounter.

And Fasano does deserve his share of criticism, he's no longer an inexperienced player and should be stepping up and taking a leadership role - and he hasn't delivered.

Mark, did'nt know that....thanks for the correction, Iam trying to think of others to represent the Garden state other then those already mentioned but for the life of me i'am coming up empty, Like NJ on a date...

Sigh - pass me a brew and another wing. Booze and food always ease the pain

Mark,

DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE PLUMBER.HE DIDN'T EVEN GO TO KINDGARDEN LET ALONE MIDDLE SCHOOLE.HIS FAMILY WERE POINERES IN PLUMBING WHEN THE PIPES WERE MADE OF IRON.BTW FASANO MY AAAAAAZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.WHEN IT STARTED IN OUR WORLD TO CALL A LOUSY PLAYER LIKE HIM OH BABY MY AZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Nothing and i mean NOTING in CANADA is better than the USA let alone New Jersey . Without the USA protecting your PU**Y country , it wouldn't even exist ! SO GIVE ME A FREAKING BREAK WITH CANADA ! LMAO ! MY GOD ! :) Believe me any Real American , when it comes down to it . would rather live in JERSEY than in Canada ! Only americans can bash their own not some canuck ! YA ! Hay !

the best guys on this blog ;

CUBAN MENACE
MARK IN TORONTO
GOPATS

Hey NJ bashing a-holes! Go screw yourselves from the home of Albert Einstein, Abbot and Costello, first state to host interacial play in baseball (Jersey City), Jack Nickleson, Springsteen, Jerry Lewis, The Four Seasons, most powerful seaport in the East and Vince Lombardi

WOW NJ, you bring a whole new meaning to the ugly American, please don't help us any longer, your an embarrassment sir....

geez i agree with eddy what is with the pat white call late in the game...jsut overcame another ted ginn boner with a 19 yarder to fasano, on the move nned to go another 35 yards for the tieing FG, if not in for 6 and they run a white otion play what the fck!!??? that is hennes winning time game experiences and they pull him???? absolutely retarded decision....that hole game was an absolute shtshow...

GREG Z IS 100 PERCENT RIGHT .WHY THE COACH HAS TO CHANGE PLAYERS IN EVERY PLAY LIKE WE ARE HAVING A GAS LEAK

mab65, Albert Einstein was from Austria, not to be confused with Australia...

ALoco calls all three of his alter-egos the best bloggers......OK.

I called for Hennings head in week 3. Not one roll out pass by the QB who was # 1 in that area at his combine. False start, poor KO returns, bad pass routes and droped passes and Gin is still in the game? Having Ricky pass? Gins end around, Pat White in that situation? And still a chance to win the game with 3 min left & 2 Time Outs. Coaches lost this game. Time to play for draft position.

Mab65. YEAH BABY ! That at way to tell them ! Baseball was invented in hoboken. Albert Einstein. You forgot about Thomas Edison. The STATE of new jersey as more history than the entire pathetic country of canada ! LMFAO

Eddy007 thats just what I was thinking. The mission this yr should be getting the young players plenty of reps.After the season end the mission needs to be finding a big play WR and TE.

Hola Menace. Einstein was an Italian educated (Milan) and Princeton professor who considered NJ his home.

DOES NJ PHIN LIVES W/ HUMANS OR MONKEYS ?

New coach (young, and very popular with players for several reasons). T.O. playing for his next contract. A tsunami of Dolphin injuries. Buffalo at home - in Buffalo. Why is everyone so surprised? And why all the hate and viciousness? Incredibly immature.

Menace/ tortured fan , i told you and all your pathetic multiple personalaties NOT to call me sir. That's reserved for some of the classy bloggers on here and that includes mark from toronto whom i'm having some fun with. You are a F'N LOSER ! Your mommy's calling you to go take a bath.

Mab65 . aloco or should i say the cuban menace should know that , after all he is a scholar. Bwahahahahahahahahahah bwhahahahahahahahahahah

FOLKS it's time to ask Sparano some HARD COSSELL type questions!!!!!!!! This regime has some explaining to do to this lifelong fin fan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Armando please ask these questions and get I Sparanos face!! It's time with the season now lost for some explaining and accountability!!!!!!!!

FACTS;
1-THE MOST CORUPT STATE IN THE COUNTRY IS,,,,,NJ

2-THE NJ STATE IS THE ONLY STATE THAT HAS A TOWN NAMED ( CORUPT )AND FAMOUS FOR ALL BAD STUFF'

3- NJ HAS THE MOST PLUMBERS PER CAPITA .LOL

Monkey and Basement Boy are at it tonight, love it!!

NJ people rock! Our politicians can't even destroy us.

cuban is a clas by himself ,see how the plumber talking to him but the cuban w/his class is just a nice educated man of honorable back ground .

class

Killerdolphins , which one is monkey boy and which one is basement boy ?

your papa is basement boy Ace.

Now monkey boy is craig to go along with aloco

Coaching lost the game. They put Henne in a position to throw the ball late when this game should've been over in the 1st half. Upsetting. Wildcat??? Get rid of that bulls***!

Other Famous folks from the Garden state, Edwin(Buzz)Aldrin, Mike Douglas,Ed Harris, Whitney Houston(Though you may not want to claim here), Derek Jeter,Heather Locklear,Jason Mewes(Jay and silent Bob)and the diesel himself Shaquille O'Neal. your state is well repersented....

fins 112
pats 34566

Gian - the Wildcat saved us in our first game against the Jets

Cuban Menace aka Monkey Boy and his gay counterpart NJ Phin fan aka Basement boy and they have alot more aliases..

This is what happens when a couple of very bad things converge all at once...

First... Dan Henning should be taken to the wood shed after calling the Play on the goal line with Ricky and th interception. I litteraly called my Nephew who also is sick enough to love this team and told him the game was over... change the channel.

Second... While Miami can play without a Couple guys out... They are not going to compete with , Allen, Brown, Ferguson, Smiley, Grove, and a bunch of others nicked up. They just do not have the talent. And the talent that is out IS the core of this team.

Henning however is to blame and It will take an act of God for me to not believe that forever.

mab65, Thats Funny NJ people rock! Our politicians can't even destroy us.

Cuban, if you keep looking for great people to come from Jersey, you might have to make a career out of just finding one.

I've been to Atlantic City, it was like going to Oz. Nobody was over 5'4 and I'm sure NJ is responsible for over 85% of the fake spray on tan sales in the western world. I have never seen more orange people.
