Dolphins lead Vikes 7-0 to start 2nd quarter

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Dolphins wanted to knock the Vikings back on their heels today. And they have done it so far.

They've stopped Brett Favre and his offense twice in the first quarter. On offense, they got a 46-yard completion from Chad Henne to Brandon Marshall on their first play. Later Henne completed a five-yard TD pass to Brian Hartline.

The Dolphins are clearly picking on Minny CB Lito Shepard.

Miami leads, 7-0.

Don't get too excited....Henning will call three runs and that's the half.

d looks good

Stopped him..

how about some props to our defense cordinator go fish

Favre got HIT BABY!

lets go henne

we should be killing them !

Held em again!!! AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

nice job. ok offense 45 sec and 80 yards. lets go

10 bucks say we take a knee

D is holding up nicely. Now 45 sec is enough time to get within field goal range, don't be conservative Miami!

Run ANYTHING but that really "ingenious" play the Cowboys ran last week.

FIRST HALF SHUT OUT. NICE JOB D AND NICE JOB ON THE ONLY TD DRIVE OF THE GAME OFFENSE!!!

we need more pass plays on offense 3 completions isnt gonna do it

Ronnie has never been known to have another gear. He could have juked but would've been caught from behind.

I usually don't like conservative play calling...but here we need to run the ball three straight times. We get the ball after the half.

Wow! The defense keeps finding ways to survive and keep the Vikes from scoring.

Vontae Davis is pretty good, by the way. What a steal in the 2009 draft!

Mike Nolan for head coach!!!!

Do you go after them? Or do you simply take a knee and go into the locker room, up 7-0.

I say, take a knee.

Great physical D. We HAVE to maintain this possession awhile.

Whoa, SULU!! A county commissioner in LA.

wonder if they'll b agggressive w/ 45 sec remining?

STOCK DOWN: SEAN SMITH. Not that his stock could get much lower. Why isn't the former Viking, Sapp playing the slot?

seems like yesterday since a wr has made a play since the game began

w need to get atleast 3 to end the half and we get the ball 2nd half.

here comes 3 runs up the middle to end the half - like to see a shot down field to Marshall - little play-action maybe

3 time outs and 45 seconds. I would make a play for a field goal.

fIRST HALF SHUTOUT NAYSAYERS!!!

i love watching favre pick himself up. keep hitting him that is the only way to BEAT him.

sorry but how can you complain about ronnie not beating a corner/safety in the open field?

Ronnie is a power back and doesnt have the break away speed thats a stupid arguement armando

SHUTOUT, SHUTOUT, SHUTOUT!!!

this is so freaking frustrating. they dont want to score

no negativity fellas were playing great

Don't even TRY to score?!?

SOLID!!!!!!!!!! proud of my fins!!

@marc...i hope ur not speaking from experience

Are you fing kidding me? Holy S@#$, I am at a lost for words...

2nd best play of the quarter ... letting the clock run down.

are these commentators hating the fins or rather loving farve fookers

DO YOU GUYS KNOW HOW DIFFICULT IT IS TO PITCH A SHUTOUT AGAINST A HOF QB ON THE ROAD? STFU NAYSAYERS!!!

So far so good for the MIAMI POUND MACHINE.

lots of points left on the field guys

i predict farve does not finish today. unless something happens on the line favre is going down.

@DyingBreed Um...7 points lead on the road vs. a great Vikings team is NOT ENOUGH. Why did we play the last 45 so conservatively? Oh yeah, I know...no true faith in Henne. Take the training wheels off!

Right robbyhernz!


Proud!

With 45 secs and 3 timeouts, not attempting to get at least a field goal to me sends a clear message to your offense on what you think about them and their ability to score and not make mistakes on the road.

I LUV THIS DAMN DEFENSE GUYS!!!

You are correct oldenglish. Without Farve, they're nothing. I hope to see a golf cart in Farves near future

So will carpenter take over for dobbins? and cover Shiancoe?

I just feel like we have to play to break these fools off. Play to demoralize the opponent. Make them not want to come out second half.

i agree with lobos

obviosly some you guys did not watch the cowboys

OHFINFAN,

GUESS YOU'LD PREFER TO BE BEHIND BY 7PTS? NO OFFENSE BUT THATS TROLL THINKING THERE BUDDY!

smartest thing sporanos done all year, ee're up and tgats all that counts

THE WAY THE D IS PLAYING 7PTS IS HUGE RIGHT NOW!!!

I'm with ya on that Joe.

Brown did the right thing on the long run - stretch it to the sideline and get everything you can out of it. If he tries to cut back in space, he's just going to get tackled sooner - like almost every single other running back in the league would have in a situation where the DB has an angle.

Sorry, Armando. Knocking Ronnie Brown for failing to take that play the distance is simply unfair. Maybe a true sprinter like Johnson or Spiller takes that the distance. but not many backs would have "cut back" to beat the defender and then scored.

Need to pass more in 2nd half, 5 passes won't cut it, awesome half though

The cowboys has nothing to do with the Dolphins. The Cowboy had like 4 secs left in the half and 30 yards to go to get within field goal range. They should have kneel down.

THE THIRD QUARTER POST IS UP. PLEASE GO THERE AS THAT IS WHERE THE LIVE BLOG CONTINUES.

Yes, Ronnie is a Power back...but so is Ricky...most 2 back teams have a Sproles type guys for that change of pace.

The hole was huge, not a power thing. By not having the guy with some speed we lost a TD. Ronnie never even put a move on the defender.

Our defense has been just so great when it mattered most. Great game plan to go hard at Farve, which apparently will be our year long Mantra...GET PRESSURE ON THE QB.
