Dolphins lead Lions 24-17 heading to fourth quarter

The Lions and Dolphins are both out of it, but at least they're putting on a fairly interesting game.

Both teams scored TDs in fourth quarter.

We're headed to the fourth quarter with Miami ahead, 24-17.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHA CALLED THAT ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*lol* at last play.......Sparonos career here in miami.....THkNS for the memories

how can you not throw for the endzone. short to r.brown with no timeouts. Makes absolutely no sense.

Henne is done.......so is Sporano.....

The ending of that game is why the coaches need to go.

Buh Bye Sparano and Henning... thankfully.

Let's get Jon Gruden.

what the hell was going on with the refs??? where was the damn ball? and why the hell is anyone even running a 2 yard route in that situation???????????/

R.I.P. Chad Henne. It was nice to know ya, but you're no longer the starting QB of the Miami Dolphins. Take Henning and Sparano with you.

No speed at WR = less separation = less margin for error = WR slips = INTs..... Not saying Henne has it, but I don't care who you put at QB with what we have on O and a shaky o-line. Need a complete overhaul on offense and it will likely be a new head coach and a GM that leads it.

Henne shouldn't have thrown it to Brown ... that's on Henne ... he KNOWS we need to go down field.

Beautiful check down by Henne!!! Game over!!! Our draft pick just got a little better...

Henne Sucks! Today was a chance to prove all of us wrong that are calling for his head. FAIL

I'd like our next head coach to be able to tuck his shirt in his pants.

Leave the damn rb in to block, what the he'll is the point in even having him out there. I'm sorry but you just can't keep this coaching staff. God it sucks being a Dolphins fan.

The Henne/Sparano fans sure are quiet. Where did they go?

unreal.... pass to end zone? noooooooo How about another dink checkdown to Brown......GET RID OF HENNE AND SPRANUS THE CONSERVATIVUS (PLAY NOT TO LOSE AND LOSE)

NO MORE

gruden or cowher!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let's see we need qb ol wr rb oc and head coach glad we r so close thanx parcels

1 AND 7 at home should cost a coach and his staff their jobs!!!!

Damn dummies! I knew they should have gone for the fg. LOL................

Oh, it's the OL....Oh, it's the OC...or drops...no you f'king clueless fruitcakes...it's UNBELIEVABLY HORRIBLE CHAD HENNE. Has been all year.

Can we cancel our charter flight out to NE next week, and just call it a season already...Please!!!!

same as last week, henne doesnt understand game awareness. you have to throw down the field

zaphod, EXACTLY, it's called understanding SITUATIONAL FOOTBALL! You get NOTHING for a 1 yd play with 19 seconds left. That's ALL Henne and the reason he won't be on the team (or at least the starting team) next year!!!

Losses now to Bills, Browns and Leos at home.

How would YOU like to be the VP MKT for this time and devise next year's ticket sales tactics.

"OK... Let's promote the fact that we... had an undefeated season in 1972... and the game has passed us by since..."

same thing last week, he throws a little 5 yard pass to ricky who didn't get out of bounds, bad decisions, if ross does not fire these guys right now he is a loser as well as henne and sparano.

I think POS dislikes Henne, lol

How did he throw a 2 yard pattern 8 yards short of the sideline

the staff is 100 percent gone, no doubt anymore. now we can ask who will we get? my first choice is cowher, then gruden. bobbyd said he will never go to another fins game if they fired the staff. where is he, told him in september this would happen

The Dolphins SUCK. I am a season ticket holder and I will not renew nor will I never be a season ticket holder again.

THE GANG OF DEFEAT WILL NEVER SUCCED ,HENNE WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR W/QB DRAFTED AT FIRST PICK AND SPARANO WILL LIVE FOR ANOTHER YEAR ....WE R AT A BETTER SPOT FOR THE DRAFT NOW .


GO FINS

That's it for Chad. He is a looooser. We have to go with a different QB and different offense next year.

Told you guys Sparano is one of the worst gameday coaches in the nfl. always burns stupid timeouts and never has them when needed most! LOL...............

One more year Sparano my ass! LOL............

oh well, another home loss. I am not surprised. I awas a Henne defender, but I cannot defend him anymore, his 2 INTS cost us the game. I hoep we start Thigpen nex week.

Mando is as non existent as our offense

lol 12 play two minute offense and not even one shot at the end zone...Im really not upset they lost. The better the pick the happier I am.

Jim Harbough please. No more retreads.

All year-no time management-throw to people who are not receivers-don't throw down field-no attempt to win-3 and outs in less than a minute-terrible-ugly-unacceptable-Ross should fire Sparano after this game-so when we get killed in New England-we have a new QB and coach-loose to Lions, Buffalo, Cleveland-1-7 at home-thank GOD I haven't been season ticket holder for the last 3 years

the worst part is we got worse during the year. early we beat every team with a losing record we played by the end we are losing to every bad team we play.

HOW MIKE NOLAN CRAP DEFENSE DO TODAY ?

19 seconds left40 yards to go.... Check Down Time.....
Throw it away if theres nothing!

another embarrasing example of what happens when a qb simply doesn't understand what is actually happening around them. too much reliance on the OC calling in the plays. there comes a time when the qb has to think two three plays ahead instead of just the called in play. A good oc/qb combo doesn't have to go through this dance. A good qb knows by the games body of work what will be available based on coverages he has seen all game. Unfortunately, the fins OC and Qb do not have this forsight and are always in a reactive mode instead of an attack mode. this gives the fins plenty of field goals and / or interceptions.

DB, let me be the first to admit my mistake. I thought Sparano was good enough, but he's not. He's a waste of space. As is Henning. As is Henne. They can all tuck their tails and bounce outta town for all I care.

See ya Tony....When you play for FG`s you send the wrong message to your Team....and the 10 points was NOT enough....

There should be NO support for Henne or anyone on the coaching staff. As soon as the game next week ends, the owner should make a BIG statement by FIRING the whole staff. This may have been worst than the 1-15 season.

why wait another game bill_cnnrs,


Id say start negotiations with cohwer or gruden already and politely escort sparono off the premises.....but they can hog tie and drag henning off for all i care and go get another stable QB to compete with IBM brain henne if he stays!!!!

yeah, i don't think the d is as good as advertised!

This game has sealed Sparano's and Ireland's fate.... Ross has to go in a completely different direction. Jeff Fisher, if available, would be my first choice.

10 pt lead less than 6 minutes to go..... lets use the play not to lose offense.

ALoco, you MORON, you see that pick-6 to win the game you RETARD!!!! Was that on Nolan. Stop being such a friggin' KNOW NOTHING!

What a disgrace.
The fans and owner deserve a better product than this.

Football 101. Checking down is not an option in the final minute with no time outs....you try to make a play or throw it away. Henne just may be as dumb as Sparano. Henne does not deserve to play next week. Let Thigpen scramble around and have some fun.

anyone at this point is a better choice.

With th is loss... they lost the same amount of home games as the 1-15 season. I know we will lose agaons t NE next week, even if they play their 3rd stringers. Henne, will throw 1 TD and 3 picks.. again. OFFENCE MVP for Dolphins this YEAr is CARPENTER.

I'm officially no longer believe in Henne. I cannot believe he friggin throws the checkdown in that situation. He's dink and dunk. He cannot connect with wide open receivers if the throw is over fifteen yards. How many times have we seen him just plain miss Marshall, Hartline, and company when they've gone long.

We're officially back at zero at quarterback. Draft to get the best you can. Need speed at wide receiver, too, and a TE, and a running back. Defense is great. Too bad it's only half a team.

Miami Sucks we lost who cares. How the hell when your leading 27-17 can you lose. Only the Dolphins can find a way to lose. I'm sorry but we suck. We lose to the Browns, Bills and now Lions. That say's it all about the Fins.

We are losers and will always be until proven otherwise.

Truly pathetic, i'm sorry but Henne has to go.

Sparano is going to be fired as well.

Miami needs to get Cowher!!!

@0x80, the checkdown to Brown at the end is inexplicable, but anyone who puts that loss on Henne is looking for a scapegoat and being intellectually dishonest. We all saw Bess slip and fall, and I guarantee that 1st pick is on Shuler. Fact is the usual suspects are to blame again. Henning going into a shell with the lead, stopped attacking with his 1965 playbook

I Also suspect that Sparano just saw his job go down the tubes.
