Third quarter starts with Dolphins leading Vikes, 7-0

MINNEAPOLIS -- It started out fast, with the Dolphins scoring on their first offensive possession.

Things settled down afterward, with the teams about ready to start the third quarter and Miami still holding a 7-0 lead.

Chad Henne has thrown only five passes and completed three of them for 70 yards. That includes the 46-yarder to Brandon Marshall.

The Dolphins are getting timely play from the defense. Vontae Davis got an interception at the Miami 1 yard line to thwart a Minnesota drive.

Minnesota WR Percy Harvin tweaked his hip again during the second quarter. He is questionable to return.

/sigh at dan henning

a crappy sweep after a huge run by ronnie

If they don't fire Dan Henning at the end of this season I will shoot myself

denis dixon went out of the game with an knee injury. if he is hurt.....maybe we can trade penne or thigpen??

wow come on miami. need more points. i dont like a 7 point lead against favre. D is doing pretty good. hope they have something special ready for the 3rd

Dan Henning has been awful. Henne is not helping him much though.

already gone into super conservative mode...

old useless wind bag henning forgot last year, we went into con mode against the saints and colts and they both killed us 4th quarter...

we lose big come 4th quarter.

scared money dont make no money!!!!!!!!! 3 timeouts and we dont try one, time for a deep pass, to end the half!! bad management!!

it all goes back to that 2-18 and 3-20. We didn't even try to score. Then all the wild cat stuff 1st QTR.

It just seems like we are afraid to go down the field.

YOU CRYBABIES NEED TO STFU WITH THE HENNING NEGATIVITY. LAST I CHECKED WE HAVE THE ONLY SCORE OF THE GAME IDIOTS. LOL!!!

His perfect drive is ALL RUNNING! A game where they ONLY run the ball! Dude, take that mentality somewhere else. Don't know if you noticed old man. THE NFL IS A PASSING LEAGUE!

Favre is the comeback queen ain't he? 7-0 against Favre might as well be 3-0

Yea Dying, because of the ONLY deep play we made!

30 minutes with a 7 point lead.......
close it out fellas.....
more MIAMI POUND MACHINE!! please

Belecheat has four rings? He would have tried to score with 45 seconds and 3 time outs.

would love to see more pass to the BEAST and the rest of the receiving core!! where the hell is fasano!! is he being kept in for blocking purposes or what

Oh, and Mandy. Brown's career long is only 65 Yards I believe, so it's really no suprise he didn't take it 99.

Second half will tell the story. If Sparano gets conservative, we lose. Vikings are good for at least two TDs in the second half. I'm willing to bet that the Phins will need at least another 12 points to win the game.

Q: What's with Henne? If dude gets the slightest pressure, he's tucking the ball and falling down. When was the last time he found a receiver in that situation? Yikes!

need to score pn this opening drive

IN TERMS OF PLAYING EXPERIENCE WE HAVE A 3RD YEAR QB JUST BEGINNING HIS FIRST FULL SEASON AS A STARTER AND YOU IDIOTS THINK WE'RE SUPPOSED TO AIR IT OUT. tHAT'S DISASTER WAITING TO HAPPEN.

YOUR ON THE ROAD WITH A 7PT LEAD AGAINST A GOOD TEAM. HENNING'S DOING THE CORRECT THING IN PLAYING IT CLOSE TO VEST UNLESS OTHERWISE WARRANTED.

NOTE TO YOU IDIOTS: "THIS ISNT mADDEN FOOTBALL. ITS THE REAL DEAL"!!!

YES, IF HENNE WAS IN HIS 4TH-5TH YEAR AS A STARTER, HELL YEAH AIR IT OUT. BUT THATS NOT THE CASE!!!

Yeah, we're idiot Dying...All these excuses...He's a QB, if he can't air it out he needs to be replaced

Points to start the half would be good.

An 8 minute drive for a TD would be great.

anyone got a stream?

tough crowd.....

Clifton Smith continues to be unimpressive

is it just me or does Smith look slow? Caroll looked faster...

can't believe I dropped the steelers defense on my fantasy for the giants defense.

They could get away with cutting Smith at this point.

Is there a lamer return game in the league than Miami's?

Dying, NO ONE loves Miami more than me. I had '66 season tickets, my friend. But faith can only take you SO far, when your opponent IS a HOF QB. Out TOP must not be a series of 3 and outs, as our D will surely tire, chasing down Peterson. He gets stronger as the game goes on, and we're missing several guys on D.

But not having a guy take it all the way in that situation has to be an issue next year.
I am so impressed with our ability to shake things up on D. Nolen is a hero.

Too conservative ... we need some points boys! UNLESS we think we're going to shut the Vikings out.

I said it last week...Take shots downfield and you'll be the PI! Fasano screwed that up though

"Get the PI"

Ronnie hs the hot hand

we dont have no blocking on special teams period!! i hope we keep run ronnie

dont take it out of ronnies hands he's running great

gotta love our ability to run that ball

we are pounding that damn ball arent we. think rex ryan has a woody?

R & R Baby!!

THATS WHY WE SHOULD RUN THE BALL TOO!!!

Check that....THE O LINE HAS THE HOT HAND
