Dolphins losing 16-3 to start the third quarter

The defense that yielded 516 passing yards last week is almost half-way there today, having given up 219 yards to Matt Schaub already.

The offense that struggled in the red zone last week, is at it again because three trips into the red zone have yidled only one field goal.

And the special teams that wasn't a worry last week is stinking today -- having missed one field goal, having had another blocked and having given up a 40-yard punt return.

No wonder the Dolphins are losing 16-3 as the team get ready for the start of the third quarter.

horrible

*sigh* optimistically though Thomas looks alright

No wonder they can't sell tickets! Awful.

Why cant the fins play one cplete game on off, def, and sptms???????

Oh crap... I was hoping to be 1st so that I can get FIST PUMPED.

Three quick hits and one prediction...

1st - The 2nd half will tell you all you need to know about this coaching staff and this team...
2nd - You can say what you want but after 6 quarters Henne looks much improved to me...
3rd – After the watching D. Thomas the 1st half, I feel much better about him…
Prediction: Henne leads the team to a come back victory….

We.Suck.

yes, thomas is definitely a bright spot

Why do I do this to myself?

I no longer live in Miami but if i did, i WOULD NOT pay to see this garbage. Poorly coached team... one week good one week bad, no consistency.

SMH!!!

ANybody see SANCHEZ shredding the competition?

No, but I dont see the Jet team finding new ways to beat themselves either. We seem to always lose with a little help from all of our team mate friends.

WANNA BET?
Wanna bet?

vince woolfork bats a pass in the air and intercepts it and brandon marshall drops a perfect pass in the endzone. This is what winners do and that is what losers do2

I know all I need to know about the coaching staff when they first arrived from the Cowboys... myself just like the rest of us know what to look forward to... FIST PUMPS...

the stadium has totally emptied

Its just sad so far...

Were terrible. I hope no one shows up to the dolphins game so they can get rid of Sparano

phinfan, I think the past two seasons have told us all we need to know about this coaching staff.

i saw that the dolphins won 82 percent of their games at the orange bowl...

they gave up home field advantage by moving to these luxury confines

Thomas was the 1st half highlight. The rest? Not so sure what to say. A comeback in the second half though would do wonders to boost their confidence. They have to be concerned right now.

Agree phinfan with #3, partially on #2, and on #1 agree but with the opposite prediction, because we agree on #1.

Thanks dying Breed I started Henne and he has -3 pts.

Yeah... the stadum emptied real fast so that everyone can fight thier way home to catch the 8:20pm Phila and Atlant game.

I didn't believe when most experts predicted a terrible season but I'm becoming a believer every minute. You realize folks that after 6 quarters this offense has 4 trips in the red zone that have produced 0 pts?!?!?!?! How can one front office and one team be so inept? Mando?

WTH was I thinking. Being too much a homer

Honestly i like Sparano as a person but after four years on the job this is the norm from him. 0-2 starts, poor inconsistent play from team, and late season collapses. I am officially on the blow things up wagon. They have build a big, slow and dumb team that cant close games and beats themselves.


i wouldn't pay 25 cents to see this garbage

Wow stadium is EMPTY lol....

I'm kinda mad that I'm watching it now...They should start paying me!

nightmare has started back up.

This teams needs far more than increased chunk yardage plays. We need chunk yardage plays that go all the way to the endzone!

Sanchez is as good as Trent Dilfer. Defenses help out tremendously and a good oline. No one mentions his two INT's he threw right to the defender it's his two lucky TD's they salivate over. Henne throws INT tipped at line by horrible RT and we tear him apart. It's the anger in the team not necessarily Henne's fault (it's ST and def fault so far this season)

Careys hurt?

Get ur fat ass out

I've got the noose around my neck...can someone please kick the chair out from beneath me

slob

were gonna have big problems if carey is gonna miss much time. Our oline is as thin as paper

Carey is out with an injury. John Jerry is in.

Well Bush was a nice addition to our spectating team!

rather have columbo on the ground right now than carey...

RUN, Run, Throw. Ive heard that song before.

MiamiD20 Henne was awfull in the red zone. four trips and 0 pts???? Even Sancheeze can make something outta that.

Don't let them win soiled

I love watching corners trying to tackle marshall

No sir...You suffer with the rest of us!

Not sure I can take much more, first year not coming from AtL to Mia for game. Heartbreaking year ahead......again

This game is not over. Don't underestimate Houston's ability to give up yards through the air.

They did it in droves last year. Jonathan Joseph is out of the game. And the Dolphins are desperate.

Thoughts?

Chances are Jerry will do great showing that the coaches have no clue

also, houston has a penchant for giving up hail-mary's

Hate to see Marshall flopping that ball around geez

a score here and we are right back in it. keep the faith

Remember September in the OB? Victories for the real FINS was a gimme, not these pretenders!

Carey ...I thought he was a comedian

Carey is back in the game now.

hopefully to god we get rid of this coaching staff now and start fresh these guys are just awful from sparano(no surprise) he wants to collect his 3 yr contract as soon as possible to nolan .

Is John Jerry not trying to bulk up to play NT?

Posted by: G | September 18, 2011 at 05:56 PM


2 scores, really

Mando it's time to fix the problem here. Success for this organization just delays real improvement.
