Bills lead Dolphins 17-7 to start of fourth quarter

The referee just said, "This is the end (long pause) of the third quarter."

He might as well have put a period after end.

That's how it feels here in Sun Lifeless Stadium. Down in every manner possible.

The Bills lead 17-7 and are driving again. Terrible.

Join me for the fun in the comments section. If the Dolphins cannot rally, this season is pretty much over.

30 dropped interceptions this year. That is an insane stat. Come up with 1/2 of those and maybe a ten win season.

Sparano is in charge of the OC, DC, ST, everything. He deserves the brunt of the blame.

I don't see how he can remain.

DITTO NEW KID!!!!

Like someone said before we go down 10 points and it might as well be 50 points. The O sucks so bad and you can't expect the D to do all the work.

Sean Smith dropped like eleven interceptions this season.he sucked again today dropping another one and giving up a touchdown!not to mention two big penalties.screw you!

I swear to God if that old man Henning blames this loss on his qb or kicker andf takes no responsibility for his completely unimaginative offense with questionable play calling I will assasinate him. How do you call a wildcat play, taking your qb off the field who was on fire, on 2nd and 10!!!!!!????? Please God someone explain this call to me!!!! Then with 40 seconds left we go into no shotgun???!!!!!!! First drive of the game 3 running plays and out. Second drive no running plays all passing plays leads to forced interception.!!!! WTF IS GOING ON?????? Get some balls Sparano and override this s**t????!!!!!!!!! Who's the head coach around here you or Henning?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get rid of the coaches Sparano and Henning tomorrow! Nolan interim coach and hire someone new in the off season. Draft a qb high or trade for one with experience and let Henne actually win the job over real competition and not a 40 year old with no shoulder and a midget who never made it. ENNNOOOUUUUGGHGGHHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGGHGHGHG ALREADY!!!!!

Criminal stupidity by the Three Stooges Sparano, Henning and Henne. I'd like to see them stand on the sidelines and just slap each others' faces.

BennyV you are so depressingly right.... not sure I can stand another 3 years to rebuild..

I like how people can find their way to the MH Blog, to ask "who won" but can't gets to a MSM scorecenter? Sorry, hope I'm missing something there?

We don't need to rebuild. Better coaching and QB play, less injuries, a QB in FA, a RB in the draft, and an easier schedule. Good coaches have won with far less talent.

screw you!Sean smith is my favorite player.no one can beat him!

not just coaching.... need to get rid of the front office stink blowcells left behind!!!!

all eleven dropped interceptions by Sean Smith were near impossible catches.ed reed would have dropped them all too.nothing was Sean Smith`s fault!

You Morons blaming any of this garbage on Henne are pathetic. You know nothing about football. NOTHING!!!!!!! Open your f***ing eyes and get a clue, HE'S NOT DAN MARINO!!!! His career is being killed by a bully offensive coordinator who has no clue how to call a game in todays NFL and a p***y head coach who doesn't question the "great dan henning" as Parcells referred to him as because he's Parcells boy. And sparano brown noses Parcells like crazy. Has no confidence in his own coaching and reasoning abilities.

So Sparano has no confidence in himself and Henning has no confidence in anyone BUT himself and these are the two MORONS who were charged with bringing a young QB along?!

Henne WAS ON FIRE!! He was leading the team and making all of the throws!! He was gaining confidence and you could see it even the announcers werte talking about it and Henning takes him off the field!!

i cannot wait for Sean Smith to twitter.he will tell you what a great game he had and how he deserves to be the best player in the nfl!

why do people blame ireland he dont coach the team.

As if Henning is purposely trying to hurt Hennes chances so he can prove himself right to the whole world. That his plays are the best and it's everyone elses fault.

Because God,,,,, if Ronnie and the rest of the guys just ran that wildcat play correctly they could've gotten a first down!!! Right Dan????!!!!!! It's someone elses fault for your stupidity???!!! Bye bye Sparano and Henning. Good luck Tony but you should've manned up and made this your team when Parcells left. You did not and you should lose your job for the HUGE over sight.

Yes, excellent analysis.

Again, being the ld softie, i hate to call our players (who were for the most part TRYING their best) CLOWNS.
They don't deserve that. They have been under-coached, and overall injuries have taken their toll.
Our team lacks talent and coaching, not heart. yes, Smith needs to shut his piehole and CATCH THE DAM ball.

Mediocrity usually starts at the top. The Pats/Colts/Steelers...now the Chiefs are built from the top down.
Please, not Carl Peterson.
Does Bill Polian have a SON??? LOL

Denny has a point.... good coahes like Nolan put their players in postion to succeed not to stroke their own pathetic egos. I beleive Madden said Shula could beat you with his players then take you players and beat you.

LOOK AT THE CLOWNs WE HAVE NOW... hey marano is good at the fist pump, wonder what else he does with his fist???

I do not believe this is Henne's fault,it is the OC Dan Henning. He does not believe in the vertical game and that ties Henne down at quarterback.
They stock pile the line because the other team knows OC Henning does not believe in the vertical game. No deep threats no offense plan its simple for defenses
Its not because we don't have play makers for a vertical game its because Henning doesnt believe in the vertical game.
Also play calling sucks, I have no problem with the wild cat in certain times but not when the quarterback is hot and Marshell is catching everything in sight.
Season over time for changes in coaching staff new oc at least and some front office moves cause it is clear they have no clue how to work the draft.
Someone please buy Henning a ticket out of Miami and get a real OC
Better luck next year guys!!
Wish Don Shula was still coaching

Amen Johnny M

Fire Tony Spaghetti Sparano...Dan Wildcat Henning...Kill the Special Teams Coordinator...Promote Nolan to Head Coach...and Bring in Mcdaniels as the O Coordinator cause he may have sucked as a head coach but he was a hell of an Offensive Coordinator...Shop for a Young D Coordinator that Nolan can mold....Gruden will end up in Dallas and Cowher will go to The Panthers.

Good point Johhny M and I'll prove your point even further. Why is it that every time we start losing Henne comes alive? Because Henning DOES NOT KNOW how to use his talent correctly. Henne can throw the ball let him throw the f***cking ball!! Henning still has the offense set up as if Pennington was the qb. He's trying to force Henne to be an underneath dump off passer who rarely takes shots doewn the field.

But look what happened. As soon as all they had left were shots down the field on long completions Henne starts calling those plays and holy s**t whata ya know Henne goes 8-8 with a TD!!

Henne is young and makes mistakes but I CAN NOT make a fair assessment of what his future will be like until he gets a coach with ballz and an OC who has a fresh new outlook on playcalling.

NO ONE can make a fair assessment of his future until we see what he can do with a real NFL coach and an offensive coordinator who's birth date doesn't read digits that came before WW2!!!

Johnny M, Henne has repeatedly missed (over or under thrown)wide open receivers on "Go" patterns...as evidenced today.
He cannot not consistently make that play.
Not sure why, he certainly has the arm to do it.

Don't know if we want to move Nolan to HC, he is awesome as DC and making him HC could take away from the defense, seen it to many times when a HC tries to do to much.

can we beg blowcells to come back and get wade phillips for us???

Go to go with Denny on this. If you have an ego maniac as OC who can't properly groom or manage a young QB, the young QB will struggle.

Denny,

Maybe I'm wrong here on your earlier post at 21:20. I thought Parcells left this team midseason, so Henning maybe Parcells boy, but that doesn't mean that Sparano is afraid of him or Parcells. He's out, just like Henne after the season.

Henne, has sucked for 2 years now, enough of this garbage about Henne. He's not even a good backup, look for him to be working at a local car lot near you next year. You and bobbyd12 go on and on about Henne and your both wrong.

Proof is in the pudding!
