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.

how about a really long punt return

what else do you want O???? the D only allowed 10 pts. do something

Henne's gonna have to throw it for the fins to win. They are gonna come out and try to stuff the run. I'd like them to go P.A. deep to marshall on first down

Time 4 O to get involved!!!

All my posts seem to post minutes late. Sorry for the cross posts.
Go Fins!
This drive will define us.

anyone notice the clock stopped after the sack?

time for henning to earna paycheck

good work D! lets go offense! SCORE!

im getting a Boner!

This drive tells what we made of

defense is winning 7-3!!!

time for a few screens

Why do you guys think we have to pass at this stage of the game? We've ran the ball all day successfully. Why go away from that now? It's what will chew the clock.

There should be ~30 fewer seconds on the clock. It should have continued running after Favre was sacked, but didn't. The refs should have rolled the clock and, frankly, the Dolphin coaching staff should have caught that it wasn't winding and pointed it out. Let's hope that doesn't come back to haunt the Dolphins.

where did the wildcat go?

*shakes head*

great start to a drive, throw the ball

BENCH RICKY!

Too much time left dude...need to score

TIME OUT?!

agreed someone had to notice the clock stopped

FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!FIRE HENNING!

Why do we need to pass? I'll give you over 40 million reasons! BRANDON MARSHALL!

Marc,

How was that Ricky's fault? Where was the O-line on that play? Seriously, what did you want him to do? The guy was on him right away.

Momentum is all on vikings side, miami continues to do nothing to help this defense stay off the field.

Henne manages the game. Hes smart and doesnt take chances. but im not sure hell ever be a game changer.

cmon, we need a play...

wildcat worked on the first drive!!!!! we have run the ball all day!!! desp need at least one first down

why did we get marshall?

Craig, Ronnie has been the superior back as long as he's been on the team. Maybe not in 03

Does anyone actually think our offense can take us to the playoffs?
If we lose this game, somebody's head needs to roll, besides Ricky's.

almost intercepted. Not a great drive. I guess its up to the defense

Looks like Marshall could make a good DB as well...

Ronnie Brown is 23 for 139 so far this season with no fumbles.

Ricky Williams is 28 for 92 with a fumble.

So it's easy to see why Ricky is getting the carries in crunch time.

How do you have so much talent on offense and be so bad???

I'll tell u what, the defense has done everything they needed to to win this game regardless of how this one ends!!!!All blame goes on the offensive side

threw it too late. under pressure yes but lito sheppard on marshall= mis match!! throw it before the cut

They're putting it all on a young, tired defense again this week.

I don't have a good feeling about this.

For the most part, the Dolphin offense just sucks so far this season.

Its interception time, interception time. Cmon, sing it with me...

Again, the lack of fear factor by GB that we have a guy that can go the distance via the run reduces their field to cover.

int

what ashame that this offense cant produce for this D

Marc,

Totally agree with you about Brown but remember these guys work better in a tandem. Don't get pissed at Ricky....the fumble thing is done.

Jason Allen game ball!

WOW, DEFESE YET AGAIN!!!!

Wow!!! Favre is putting Jason Allen for defensive player of the week.

oh my god!

Is Jason Allen a starter now? I think yes

Really happy for Jason Allen. This guy has been through a lot!!

YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME!!!

OFFENSE BLOWS IT YET AGAIN,, UNBELIEVABLE!!!!

Damn fumbles are KILLING us!!

wow.

Ok, so where is Sammie Smith when you need him!

Now Brown fumbles? Did these guys bet on the game?

Talk about giving a game away!!!!

Can Dick N coach O as well?...LOL

Couldn't be worse than what we have. QB coach needs to go. It's the philosophy (as Mando pointed out) that has gotten into Henne's head....
DON'T LOSE THE GAME.
Real positive, that.

YOu guys wanted Ronnie.....there you go!!

doesnt AP fumble a lot?? just saying
