dying, who are you voting for;

1-meek
2-christ
3-ruobbio

Please Henning no mas pussycat.Hay caranba?

I Phone app being a pain in ass last couple of days.

ALoco, NO politics please. Makes friends into enemies. The only thing that i have to say is there are dead men and women who gave their lives so we can vote. Dont let their ultimate sacrafice go for naught. Go out and Vote Tuesday, and then pray these guys can work together and fix this country. Americans First, eveeything else is nonsense.

By the way, I think our offense moved the ball better against Pitt then NO has

bobby12, for the last month you have been the voice of reason i must say .no more politics ,it's only for the donkeys .

Amen Bobby

new orleans cant even move the ball vs cleveland

a huge game next sunday. u cant lose more than 5 to have any chance at playoffs. ravens and fins could come down to tie breaker

uglyness can be beautiful sometimes.

We had no problems moving the ball today:

11 plays 50yds 3pts
10 plays 55yds 3pts
07 plays 39yds 3pts
04 plays 13yds 3pts
15 plays 81yds 3pts
06 plays 96yds 3pts

Anyone can say Henne sucks all they want but sucky qb's dont engineer this many 50yds or more scoring drives in one game being sucky. Regardless of whether they end in 3pts or 7pts.

This game proves Henne has the tools within himself. He just need to continue to fine tune them. A quick speedy back and speedy #2wr would be a major help too.

Marshall's the only major offensive weapon we now have even worthy of game planning for. The Cincy game showed DC's are now triple teaming Marshall because of the lack of fear Hartline will beat thier corners deep.

Sounds like something a guy would say when had to settle for an ugly wife.

yes dying, we cant run the ball very well this year. but hennes the man, hes gonna get better and better. glad to see ronnie go after this season, lets get some speed

If we had that quick speedy back and speedy #2 wr we would have easily scored 35-38pts today.

or a good oc

bill_cnnrs,

If we had a speedy quick rb to attack the edges, the middle of defenses would loosen up too. Our run games woes may also have a lot to do with DC's realizing in 2010 we're challenged to attack the edges so they overplay towards the middle.

dan carpenter deserves the game ball, actually, our wins have been so close.... without carpenter's FGs we'd be winless!


Guys here always tell us what we needto get rid of would make terrific Republican politicians. Great at reconizing what we dont need but clueless in presenting concrete solutions of how to make it better.

Posted by: DyingBreed | October 31, 2010 at 10:05 PM

Spoken like a true clueless left wing azzwipe. How's the left wing or so called democrats solutions working out for ya /us and how 's it they made it better ??? What an idiot !!

bill_cnnrs,

I think only a small part of its playcalling. Most of the time the playcalling is directly linked to your personel. We are still missing the two pieces we talked about from the offense.

Then there's underutilizing some of the pieces we do have. Like Brown catching passes out of the backfield more. Cam Cameron had him on a pro bowl pace doing this before the season ending knee injury. Then there's the young qb factor and at times faulty excution of the plays called.

Everything after those above are directly linked to playcalling. Overall a small percentage of its atrocious playcalling. When you combine it all together it looks like more than average atrocious playcalling to the naked eye.

using the wildcat late in the game was pathetic. could of cost us the game

Good Grief,

Typical idiot who has no clue and call himself Republican. The reason we're got in and cant get out of this mess is because 1st of all Republican poticians and thier Wall Street coconspirators placed us here.

Your greedy business henchmen sent all the jobs to the overseas seatshops. Now your Repuiblican do nothing at all say no to anything even it it will work just so it can be said a democratic and most of all an African American president was a failure.

Also for your information I dont consider myself republican, democratic, nor midstream. Im of the party all Americans are at heart.

Im of the patriotic party. I vote for whomever has the people not the political point of interest, not the Wall Street greed machine, nor corporate koolaid pushers as thier top agendas.

People like you are stupid little puppet controlled by whichever direction the wind chooses to blow. Stupidity is only patriotic to stupidity.

Bill_cnnrs,

Seeing us go that ultra-conservative at that point of the game highly disturbed me too. Wild cat's been declawed because there's no serious threat of pass completions.

Teams can now feel safely blitzing and dropping 10 men in the box against it. Even a conventional running play is now a better option. Think Henning being arrogant did it to rub it in the face of his detractors.

I love seeing the Steelers coming up short tonight versus the Saints. Looks good on them after they stole that game from us last week. Sorry but I think they are over-rated and I think that will be proven out as the season goes on.

I think the 'Phins are going to be in tough next week. I don't see we have the team to knock them off next week. You can't get by relying on your kicker week in and week out and I think we still beat ourselves in games, something Baltimore doesn't do.

They make the entire country suffer just to ensure another black man's ever elected anytime soon. Just calling it like I see it.

People like you are stupid little puppet controlled by whichever direction the wind chooses to blow. Stupidity is only patriotic to stupidity. Thats why you go without while being sifted like the wheat. Only party you are truly of membership is that of stupidity.

Craig M,

Steeler loss was a joy to watch, it should have occured last week. Never know how the wildcard races shape up at season's end. Could possibly become a game determining playoff seeding. You never know.

REALLY ???? The Democrats ran congress and the senate the last 2 years of bush 's / republicans term. It was clinton and the democrat's who decided to unregulate fannie mae and freddy mac and give loans out to peopel who couldn't afford them. It was barney frank and dodd from conn, democrats , who ran the the oversight committe of the banking that was in charge of fannie mae and freddy mac that put us in this mess. Do us a favor and stop listening to left wing liberal media propaganda and do some freaking research on your own !! it is you who's the typical idiot with no clue. next time you might want to stay out of stuff you have no clue about ! Stick to football and you're not that good on that either !

can we keep this a football discussion and not a political one.....that being said, Dying Breed, you are as ignorant as they come when it comes to politics

By the way both parties are at fault and both have put us in this mess , to single out republicans is naive and clueless, go phins !!

steelers lose, jets loose.....more palatable than politics.....at least i think so!

Im not democrat, republican or midstream. Im patriotic. All the parties have gotten away from patriotics. The word patriotic is now a tool used by all of the paries to clunk you fools in your useless heads.

When will you wake up?

Good Grief,

Said what I said because you used the same useless weapons most republicans use when challenged. Everyone immediately becomes leftwing when they are opposed in any manner.

Leftwing translated into republican dialect immediately says, "How dare you call me wrong!" "Dont you know I'm perfect?"

"President Obama left Rhode Island early yesterday because

amen ray! i was trying to post a jay leno joke but it didnt post fully.

Get rid of Dan Henning, getting tired of his play calling. He sucks

amen and hallelujah good grief! beating the ravens would be sweet indeed! even if carpenter has to knock in 10 FGs!

what ever it takes to win agree 10 12 what ever just we babe!!

5 Fist Pumps and 1 Backflip!

Yeah!

Go Phins!

5 Fist Pumps and 1 Backflip!

Yeah!

Go Phins!

how about i backflip and 5 pump fists, LMAO

Question for you guys???

This is the second week in a row that the commentator remarks that only Marshall and maybe one other Receiver are on the pass play in the red zone. In other words they are making it sound like its a max protect with only Marshall being targeted. It's no wonder that they are having a hard time hooking up?

Maybe some of you that have gone to the games can shed some light on this?

Go Phins!

martin u hilarious whoa

Before I HAD to go to work at (I left at 2:30)the comments were sooo I'M JUMPING OFF THE BANDWAGON type that it just makes me sick.Ya things could be better but the game was not even halfway over and there was too much crap that we suck!Maybe were not S.B ready but we have learned to win.I really think the team is starting to find itself and going to step-up.The offense will start to feed off the defense.Should be the other way around but not with this club and that does not make it wrong,just different.

hey coach!!!
you beat a 2-5 team,score one td and 5fg.hey!!! jeff ierland, did you give the front office the next day off. can you afford to be happy,the stands are half empty.why is that?
ed the fan

Did I see anyone say that Carpenter had a great game? Not one of you turds even seen that. Not only the field goals but his kickoffs enabled the special teams to close a gap. Every kickoff went to a corner with a great hang time. This enabled the ST to stop the guy fast. One time at the 12 yard line.

The punter also played great.

It is how you do the little things.

p

Well said kindry,ya they played better on S.T's but ,ya,carpenter is looking pro bowlish.yaaa

Carpenter is going to lead the league in points at this rate.
I'm glad I never say anything mean spirited about the Dolphins.It makes me sleep better,even when we lose.

The Jets looked like a power house team yesterday.
I'm starting to feel a little sorry for Brett Favre.He should just walk away now,there's nothing in the tank and the Vikings are playing bad.
I have to go, the UPS guy just delivered a package from my girlfriend in Yemen.

hey coach!!!
new england traded away there pro bowl kicker for a draft choice. it's great to have carpender no question,but we need a pro bowl qb.we need a pro bowl front office!!!
ed the fan

This would be a huge win if the fins could beat Baltimore, it would be their biggest win of the season considering the type of team Baltimore is, and also they are in the AFC were we have lost 3 conference games already so it is a little bigger then Chicago or Detroit . In a 16 game season they all are important but conference games are more important to win. Does Ronnie look slower this year?He looks slower to me and then he also looks like he goes down a lot easier then in the past, I am very happy with the win ,but I do agree we have yet to put together a complete game but this game was the closest we have came to it this year really good D in the 2nd half

hey!!! Jeff Ierland
jake groves

ernest wilford
justin smiley
josh mccown
pat white
shawn murphy
patrick turner
we got work to do, let's turn the front office into a pro bowl front office."can you do it"
ed the fan

ahhh Channing Crowder, so funny and so true!!!!
fans! just enjoy another road win and hope they will shock us an move the ball on tbe ravens!!

Happy with win but...Why still trying wildcat? On game clinching drive,after Ricky ran so well previous drive, why try TWO unproductive wildcat plays? Preditable 3 and out and let Cinci back in the game. Fasano needs to relearn how to catch the ball. Happy with Henne. Still no downfield shots, why? Is Henne afraid or is Henning afraid?

Same thing, Same results = Barley getting by the mediocre teams.

The way we are playing on offense, we will continue getting by against teams like the Bengals and the Bills.

If we want to beat the top tier teams, we HAVE TO RUN THE BALL!!!!
Run the ball early in the game. We are playing like we have the Mark brothers and Dan Marino on the team!
Take a look at what we got and what we're built for.....
We have Ronnie Brown, who gets stronger with more carries in the game...
We have Ricky Williams, who needs to get more carries to increase his big play ability.
They should have ATLEAST 35 carries per game between the two of them.
Henne should not pass more than 20-30 times a game.
We have to make Henne's passes count. A lot of times we are giving our selves 2 downs instead of 3, why? Because in EVERY set of down, there is ALWAYS a wasted pass play that could have been more productive with a RUN!!!!!

We have to be smart enough to know what type of team we are instead of becoming something we're not.

We are a run first team, our O-Line and RBs will only get stronger in games with more run plays.
Optimize Henne's performance by allowing his receivers to become more open due to Defenses respecting our Run game.
Play Action plays to Marshall or Bess will be money all day!!!

Let's make our Offense work the way it's built.

Defense is playing to win.

Ok, so first off, that was a good win. I want to say that so the yahoos on here shut up about people not being happy when our team wins. I'm thrilled, overjoyed. Great, great.

Now, to the truth. I'm a little gunshy right now because I know what comes after 4-3, you guessed it, 4-4. We've proved (over the last 3 years) that we can beat sub .500 teams consistently. What we haven't proved, is we can beat teams OVER .500 consistently. And that's what we have in store next week at Baltimore.

My slightly unimpressed view stems from that fact, that 7 games in, we STILL haven't managed to correct the simple structural problems this team has (and has been visible to anyone watching). Those are:

- We play not to lose (not play to win). Those last 2 Wildcat plays tells that whole story. Sparano (you could tell) didn't like the call, and should stand up as the head coach and CHANGE it or else go down with the OC's sinking ship.

- Brandon Marshall isn't getting looked at consistently. And when he does, he's the only WR going out on a route, and guess what, he's draped by 3-4 defensemen. STUPID FORMATIONS!

- Ronnie doesn't have it (for whatever reason) this season. Not sure why the coaches can't see that. Ricky deserves more touches at this point than Ronnie. Again, the fact that nothing changes says the coaches are too damned stuck in their ways to actually do anything to improve.

Overall, what I'm looking for is IMPROVEMENT! That's not what I saw yesterday. I saw the same game we played the last 6 weeks. The difference to me wasn't anything we did, it's that Cincy sputtered (and made our defense look good and our offense wimpy strategy win out in the end). We'll see how far that gets us against Balt. (or any other + .500 team frankly). Again, I've said it before, what I'm seeing is a .500 team (no better, no worse). I'd like to see changes, I'd like to see improvement, I'd like to see a better strategy. Instead, I see none of that. I see a team who's coaches think they're right and not only don't WANT to change, but WON'T change. And so why should I be temporarily excited and happy when I know what's coming in 6 days?

Jamillion,

Your post was well written, I coudn't disagree with your assesment of what this team should be doing.

I think we have the best PASS BLOCKING O-line in the NFL, and a QB who isn't scared to stand in a shrinkig pocket and deliver the football.

Our RUN BLOCKING is so-so and will get better only if we can loosen up teams with the pass (as seen yesterday).

Henning has finnaly acknowledged that and thats why you saw so many passes on 1st down....Its the strengh of our team now...We are no longer the Dolphins of the 00's.

Henne is begin to be freed up and his passes yesterday were beautiful, on par with Flaqcco when it comes to touch. Every week we watch this kid grow up in front of us and yesterday we saw the TOUCH pass...Last week against the Steelers we saw the look-off. It was his arm that loosened up the "D" and made those runs in the 2nd half possible.


WHY NOT US!!!!!

DC...for shame....for shame

You have/were won of the most consitens supporters of this team...You have ranted and raved about fans not being ALL IN!

And now this.

You have a right to your opinion and i am not writing this to attack you or even sway your opinion.

I will just count you another person who will have to eat his words when we win 10 or 11 games and our season is still continuing in JAN.

This season is so young and we have a YOUNG team that wins on te road....do you realize how rare that is? I do

When they stop thinking so much and just play at home...they will win their too.

FGs are a premium in DECand JAN and we have a KICKER whose confidence is sky rocketed.

I posted on here about 3-4 weeks ago that Division crowns are won after thanksgiving...NOT BEFORE.

I'm not saying the jets have crashed and burned...i am saying lets play into DEC before we predict our finish...

The best thing about football is that EVERY WEEK IS A NEW SEASON!


WHY NOT US!!!!

For the record...I LOVE FIELD GOAL-FIST PUMP JOKES...I think they are among the funniest things i have EVER read. I even take part in them from time to time depending on my mood.

I intend to continue doing so.....

But DOLPHINS NATION...I ask you.


WHO'S LAUGHING NOW?

Not me.

CONGRATS TO DAN CARPENTER AND THE ST.

I hope Tony Sporano is icing his shoulder down...10 FGs in 2 weeks can put a lot of strain on a mans arm.


WHY NOT US!!!!!
