Dolphins lead Browns 10-7 to start third quarter

The Dolphins are holding on so far at Cleveland Browns Stadium.

Yes, they gave up a TD pass from Colt McCoy to Josh Cribbs that victimized Sean Smith in one-on-one coverage. That tied the game at 7-7 in the second quarter. McCoy has otherwise struggled, completed only 5 of 14 passes for 73 yards. He has a 47.6 rating right now.

But Dan Carpenter connected on a 23-yard field goal to give the Dolphins back the lead at 10-7.

Chad Henne is playing very well so far. He's completed 15 of 19 for 191 yards and one TD. His quarterback rating is 126.1.

this just feels like a stalemate right now...really no mommentum for either side....

still cant score TDs in the redzone same old story

Someone remind me is koa Misi really good against the run or the pass?

reggie bush just looks like a complete and utter waste at this point...waiting for a reason why miami picked him up right now......still waiting...


This team needs a confidence boost right now. A victory on the road, regardless of the score will help them.

Wake up! This game win or lose only proves how much more difficult it will be to beat the "GOOD TEAMS".

If you cant put away bad teams its a sure sign its going to be a very long season!

O yeah and darren sproles scored yet again for the saints....*lmao* where u at reggie????

Finally YEAH! got first post....about time coach Sparano put him in a position to succeed

You guys suck!


The Jags and Panthers are now playing in the Jacuzzi Bowl!


We shouldn't be struggling to beat this team without even their best back.

I agree with DB...this game proves nothing except that miami is only three points better than a team they SHOULD be a lot better against.....they were better than cleveland last year and still lost by three....just sayin

Jags and Panthers need to trade in the cleats for water ski's. LOL....

Fewer Fins mistakes so far - Against a better opponent - Fins might be behind a TD or more.
Wish they could get Gates and Marshall in on the same play to stretch the Browns defense and throw underneath or go for a bomb.

O yeah and darren sproles scored yet again for the saints....*lmao* where u at reggie????

Right here, dude.

Cam Lootin Newton stealing towels to stay dry

please stay close into 4th quarter!

You guys looking for a California stud?

This game only has the potential to put us behind in the 2012 "Suck For Luck" chase. Nothing more nothing less dolfans!

Reggie Bush so far today: Five rushes for minus-1 yard.

Cleveland probably comes out and tie the game or take the lead. LOL...

so down 14-10 soon

Why are we letting them run without impunity? Wake Up!

If U guys look at every end zone throw by Henne 90% are thrown over the heads of our guys by at least 6-8 feet every time. Can that not be corrected? Or just stop throwing those ?? I dont get what these coaches are doing to help us get better.

Miami leads by only three???????????????

these are 2 horrible teams

this is the fins team we were waiting for!!!

Who the hell is Hardesty? Running over our D

Not even Jesse James ever had it so easy. We're paying $5 million a year for this!

Armando-Why do our corners ply off the opponent and let them gain so many yards before tackling them forward for more yards?

I must admit I was holding out hope that the Fins would prove all the nay sayers wrong. Even after the NE loss, I couldn't help feel good about what looked to be a new and improved Henne. I thought we were finally going to have a legit offense to complement our "top 5" defense.

Now I just want to curl up in the fetal position and sucky my thumb..... We are not a very good football team.

I feel for Tony S. I truly feel he is/can be a good coach. I personally place more blame at Jeff Ireland's feet for his horrible FA moves, and mediocre drafting. Tony only has so much talent to put on the field.

Note to the Miami Dolphins: Cover Ben Watson!

Browns r rolling!!

This is a pathetic way to start the half for the Dolphins.

Are we ever gonna be able to cover a TE? Ever?? Been years now we cant do that? WTF

Damn! Just like I posted. Browns come out and tie or take the lead on the opening 2nd half possession.

Pathetic how easy these Dolphins are to predict!

Yeahh Reggie Bush... Subtraction by addition.

Interestingly, the fact that we are all here PROVES we all bleed Fins.
Why else would we spend time watching a mediocre football game, featuring our beloved team, which has NO chance to make the playoffs, with at least 10 teams in the AFC clearly MUCH better than we, coached much better than we, with personnel much better than we.

But we watch hope, bleed, scream, curse, pray (at least SOME OF US) all BECAUSE we love our team.

The one exception being Armando, who MUST observe the proceedings, though I believe he has proven he feels for us.

I salute all you, whether we agree or disagree from time to time.


MIAMI 21:07


Miami leads by only three???????????????

soon 14-10

the Def. Line do not stop. the blitz package is not working.WHAT'S GOING ON?

funny when people in here ripped us for saying bush would do nothing for us. preseason meant so much

Misi is another waste

BTW, Hardesty was a do little back at Tennessee. As usual, the Fins make guys like this look like Jim Brown.

Nice stop D

This game is going to prove nothing either way. Tehy are who they are. But I'll take a narrow victory over a loss any day and if that's only a morale victory then so be it.

At least they are held to three

Aother realistic prediction:

Browns convert fg and Dolphin 3 and out thier 1st 2nd half possession.

I know my Dolphins but still hold out very faint hope that Im wrong!

Cleveland coaching staff adjusts at the half and comes out smoking...let's see what our great coaching staff comes up with

phins got em where we want em.

we should just play the no huddle shotgun through the rest of the game....only thing thats semi worked thus far at least moving the ball into enemy territory....

If that had been Trusnik I would have lost it.

Can't take too many chances, guys. Gotta keep this conservative.


If the dolphins miss out on winning the Andrew Luck sweepstakes by one win. We'll look back at this narrow victory you wanted so much to have.

Ok buddy?

I am probably in the minority here, but I think Bush is a good player.

It's just that the Dolphins are using him wrong. He's a third down back. Period. Get him in space, use him as a weapon in space.

Dolphins not doing that.

Henne may throw for 400 yrds....but with 1 td...that would be VERY SAD!!!!

I don't care if it IS just the Browns. 13-15 for almost 170 yards and a TD is really fudging good. He needs to start trying/hitting some downfield throws but otherwise Chad Henne is a good QB. He's poised and decisive. He still has work to do but I don't know how anyone can do anything but give this kid credit for getting it together and taking big steps while remaining handicapped by a sub-par coaching staff. This team has young talent. Somebody will wrangle it.

Why we didn't get Darren Sproles, Jeremy Shockey, Jimmy Graham, and other game changers when we had plenty of money to do so is a crime punishable by termination of one Jeffrey Ireland.

Also he drafts people who are experts at us starting drives at the 10 by getting holding and block in the back penalties.

Let's see if Henne's development has improved on not clamming up when he needs to least. My money says he clams up this drive until he proves otherwise!
