Not an easy place to win !!! congrats

All of the people who were predicting we'd be 0-5 or 1-4 after the first five games have been reduced to nit picking after a win. WTG PHINS. Yes, game ball to Cameron Wake; outfreakin standing job.


BELIEVE IT OR NOT: THE STATS DON'T LIE

SPECIAL TEAMS HUGE IN VICTORY!!

Punt Returns:

2 for 23yds Dolphins, 3 for 7yds Packers

Kickoff Returns:

SO YOU SEE GUYS THE UNSPECIAL TEAMS WERE INDEED PRETTY SPECIAL TODAY!!!

There are perhaps 2 maybe 3 Qb's on the planet that play mistake free football on a regular basis. Henne played well enough for us to win this week, so there shouldn't be any complaining about how crappy of a quarterback he is. Can he improve? Of course. but that can be said about just about every QB. on every team. We won the game try and enjoy it. By the way the donkeys just kicked a 59 try fg. 10-7 donkeys over the jets

Those who predicted 0-5, 1-4:

Tortured
test
Bill_Connors

Asking for help in adding to this list.
Thanks.

Go Bronkeys!

I wish every game was an away game in hostile environment. Miami shows up and win then!! GO PHINS and CANES!!

Well, you'll get your via the Jests and Patsies...

Great the Dolphins are 3 and 2 We have a real chance now. Good win.

No problems today.

henne is not dim

To "that Guy"

Maybe you should petition the NFL to reverse the final outcome of this game to 31-7 Green Bay. After your scathing synopsis of the Dolphins, there was no way we should even have competed today. Perhaps we should have just forfeited. Also, ask yourself, "Did anyone apologize for beating Dan Marino in his own house when he had a substandard team around him?" If your answer is "yes" then you are delusional.

henne wonderlic not great at 22

marino's score was 15

we need to play every game like this. ITs ugly but this team is not in a place where we can air it out. Run the ball and play great defense. You can win a lot of games that way in the nfl.

henne just needs more reps, speed and check down drills

test and tortured have rectumlic scores of 80 and 85.

The further away from Stephen Ross the Dolphins are, the better they do.

i lov my fins regardless and i appreciate their hunger today

Henne is a winner, get over it....

all u haters need to understand how hard it is to win on the road and understand that thw players are starting to gel. do you realize how many new guys are on thia team

shout put to socal. i am in Riverside. heres to west coast fin fans

Good game all around on Offense, Defense, and Special Teams. Hustle and Intensity on both sides of the ball, however, Henne still needs to be smoother through his progressions and look off the safety or other corner, like the other STARTING quarterbacks in the league.

I still don't understand the REVERSE while moving the ball in the fourth quarter, Henning is trying to fool the Packers instead of cramming it down their throats like they did all game...stats don't lie. Running and Passing the ball all over the field and a REVERSE loses 3 or 4 yards and a holding penalty by Lydon Murtha makes it 2nd and 23 instead of a manageable down and distance. Could've been more points ????

Don't want to be negative, but, that AGAIN was a game changer, along with the INT thrown to Brandon Marshall's man, jeez, Dan can we throw to anyone else ??????

go broncos !!!!!

Any time someone is critical of Henne, the Henne apologists retort that "no one is perfect". DUH??!!

NOBODY IS ASKING FOR HENNE TO BE PERFECT. We'd like for him to just be good. We're asking for him to stop staring down his receivers on every play, throwing late on every play and absolutely stinking when the game is on the line. The next time our receivers catch a ball IN STRIDE will be the first for this season.

Henne has been awful more times this year than good. FACT.

Here's something nobodies mentioned yet! The wildcat was left in his gage at the zoo! Whataya know a victory!!! The wolf should eat the wildcat while he's sleeping so the wolf gets full, and the wildcat dies!

Carl Peterson : So your sayin I gotta wait ?

Mr. Ross :First off, stop calling and like I told you earlier, I gotta clear this first with Gloria, J-Lo, Venus and Serena

Hope we get JJ and JO back for the Pittsburgh game.
We are a better team with them.

I like the direction of the team and the intensity, but, I feel like we need more smash mouth football against Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and the remaining teams on the schedule.

Based on our stats we should have scored 30 points or more, but, we seem to play too conservative on Offense, other teams seem to throw the ball DOWN THE FIELD and did Fasano have a catch before his touchdown?

We need to start out scoring teams and force them to put up big point totals to beat US, not the other way around....just a few thoughts....NO NEGATIVITY, just want more big plays, we have the playmakers....

I CALLED THIS ONE!!!! YEAHHHH BUDDDDDDY

SPARANO WAS RIGHT WHEN HE PUTS HIS FIST IN THR AIR.

GREAT COACHING ,NOT TO LISTEN TO THE DONKEY FANS.

WE BETTER SIGN HIM UP FOR 4 MORE YEARS .

GIVE HENNE A RAISE BEFORE HE FLEES TO ANOTHER TEAM .

I was pretty critical Of Henne on some of his passes today. I am currently watching Oakland/SF. Maybe I was too harsh.

Hey Boulder,

I couldn't agree more, but, we do have the players to stretch the field after the running game pounds it for a lot of yards, with Hartline, Roberto Wallace, and Marlon Moore, and of course, Brandon Marshall as evidenced by the deep ball to Marshall in the Minnesota game. I see other teams throwing it deep, take a freaking shot Henning, and we might hit a big one?

Great win today.
One thing that no one can deny is the coaching on this team is BAD. Clock control, timeouts, play calling...
I hope they decide to bring Cowher next year.

Man this victory over the GreenGay Packers was needed big time guys. All around not too bad..some little issues to clean up but I think I started to see some gel squeezing out of our team...good stuff guys, congrats to the team and fans for a big time win today! By the way...is Dansby ok? i havent heard any reports yet...that could be good or bad...Mando??

I want some exapmles of what plays Henne locked on to his reciever, or did not go through his progressions. Don't use the interception because that was obvious. I must have been watching a different game because none of these thing that Henne has struggled with seemed like a problem today. Perhaps some innacuracy at times, but after the INT. I thought Henne played well.

henne threw several passes in strude oncluding thw bomb to Marshall in second game

Can all the haters please kill there mom for having them, then please kill yourself for killing your mom.

We could have never won the game without the confidence of the blogger known as Home!

GO PHINS

I agree with you. Lets hope that he gets better this year, even do he seems very slow.
The pass to bess on the right side on 3 and 6 he took for ever to find him.
Even the TV commentators made note of it..

again I luv my find... want the to improve and they showed heart today

Hey Darryl...unfortunately Henne did still stare down the WR's...he hasnt mastered the look-off yet....give him time to grow. I say that also because look at sancheeze today, two picks already..reality is setting in now in stinky NJ... hahahahahahah! Now...gooooooo Denver!!!

3 and 2 b i t c h e s ! Haters should kill themself...... 1 shot 1 kill lol

please haters go kill your moms then go kill you drunk dads then turn around and kill yourself .

And yes....my dolphins played with HEART today guys!! Finally!!

one thing I noticed is that when refs call jets for their "aggressive" play the curtain is pulled on how really week they are without refs turning blind eye. jets are mediocre

Ooohhh i like that...a murder-murder-suicide! maybe that will happen to the stinky jets too!

Darly Dunphy....

When did you start using the word DONKEY.....all this time i thought you were real....are you just a creation of Aloco's head...say it aint so

Doesnt matter now guys and girls..GreenGay is done! bring on little ben the womanizer/rape-artist...we will show him a thing or two!!! How bout our first home win next week guys!

I don't hate Henne, I just hate that the reason we use Henne over Pennington is that Henne has a arm to throw the out passes, and throws over 20 yards, yet we don't take advantage of this. The things that Pennington does really well is move the ball down the field. So my point here is use Henne for the talent and skill he has or put Pennington in. Also why in the world with 3 seconds left and the ball at the 50 do you not put up a hail mary pass jumpball for Brandon Marshall to go get. We could have getten a PI, or a jump ball TD. I just don't understand not using the positive situations when they are there.

Home, thanks for pumping up the fans on kick returner Nolan Carroll, when they were all whining about wanting Ted Ginn back. Ted Ginndoes in fact only have those two kick return tds in his entire nfl career.
Nolan Carroll had a darn good day. Thanks for setting the whiners straight!

Dude...Penne is NOT going to play unless Henne gets hurt...and thats the way it should be, henne is developing man, give him a little time...period! Hey at least he isnt alex smith, 5 years in and smith still sucks!

Good win today, one terrible call by ref after having the benefit of replay is totally unacceptable. Could have cist us the game. Need to come home and win one on OUR field.

The NFL is gettin SISSY-FYED

CLEAN HIT BY LEONARD...LIKE IT OR NOT

BRONCOS ARE USING REVIS.....THE REST OF THE NFL SHOULD TAKE HEED AND NOT PLAY SCARED

phinman...give it time. penny is one shoulder away to retirement

Thanks HOME the Dolfan,
You and i were right on starting corner back.
Jason Allen is actually plating better stat wisw than Vontae Davis.
Another interception today for Jason Allen. Double didget tackles and did you see Jason Allen1s stop on the 1 yard line.
Home,
I gave Sean another shot, but C`Mon Man. Another whiff on an easy interception, in his fu!@#@# hands and right threw.
Good call on benching POSER BOY!
This FRAUD is not even worth a nickel.

Home, let`s do lunch tomorrow!
3-2 Bro

***** The Dynasty Be Fins! *****

henne is good considering his number of starts

Kris, I've always called the Denver team the Donkeys. It goes back to when Elway played, because I thought he resembled..well a donkey. It has nothing to do with ALoco

Henne's interception was more a fantastic play by the defender than a mistake by Henne.

Polite's failure on 3rd and 1 was all about the complete lack of push by the blockers.

Henning still makes a bunch of "scratch your head" calls, which brilliant calls like the pass to Fasano does NOT excuse.
