Dolphins lead Patriots 17-0 to start third quarter

FOXBORO, Mass. -- This is a butt-whipping in the making.

And the Dolphins are doing the whipping on the Patriots, 17-0.

Matt moore has thrown two TD passes. Tom Brady has spent much of the afternoon on the ground, avoiding an angry Miami rush, behind a leaky offensive line.

The Patriots are playing with two rookie tackles, and a backup left guard. Matt Light was inactive today and Logan Mankins is out with a knee injury.

Oh, and New England's 32nd ranked pass defense is playing like a 32nd ranked pass defense, complete with two pass interference penalties.

New England's best chance for a score in the first half came and went when Stephen Gostowski missed a 51-yard field goal just before halftime.

Go figure.

TD,BRADY

The sky is falling, the sky is falling. Let's run and hide. Spineless fools.

Vontae Davis lost Branch in the back of the end zone.

Dolphins have a game on their hands. Must respond.

C'mon Fins D

Then again...

Play is being reviewed by the TD will stand.

So where did all the Bowles fans go? Scurry off like frightened mice already?

Armando I told you last week Fisher and Sparano are the same Sh****, o like the Chineese said TAUTALLA

Suerbowl Rings,Suer Bowl Records...Super model wife...Rich......give it up Brady, you will never amont to anything

Mando sez "FOXBORO, Mass. -- This is a butt-whipping in the making.
--------------------
Yeah, but NOT for the TAKING.

moore has a knack for the timely fumble....

WTF? it's one score and we're still up by 7?

BTW, A Very Merry Christmas to Mando and all here...Happy Hanukkah as well.

Loyal fans only when they are winning. Time to go wipe your tails.

What did I tell you
These cheaters can barely beat Miami at home...if you think they're gonna win the SB you should quit smoking crack

we need a score R.F.N.

Maybe Bowles will tell the players to quit, just like you all have given up.

Merry Christmas to you, IMAWriter.

WASH, TENN, BUFF ALL WINNING. SO A LOSS TODAY WOULD BRING SOME GOOD NEWS!

THIS next drive will show WHAT we've got...O-Line, HC, OC, and QB.

We have to score now, have to...

Agree IMA...

Really? C'mon Moore

This game is getting close, right about now Moore usually chokes

BARRING A CLYDE GATES KICK OFF TD RETURN HERE, I THINK WE'RE DONE FOR TODAY FELLOWS. THE SCRIPT SAYS WE ALWAYS PLAY PROGRESSIVELY WORSE FROM HERE.

SEE WHAT I MEAN?

to much time with the ball this is not chess

I get it that Moore saw no one open.But his internal clock, his instincts, have to tell him to get rid of the football.

TRUE TO SCRIPT, MOORE HOLDS BALL INSTEAD OF THROWING IT AWAY!

That's on Moore

Now we will see what Bowles is made of. I can guess already...........

The good teams find a way to shove it back down the other team's throat.
If we look gutless, than we are.
That tough mindset comes from the HC...if we don't show it, then it's not there. NE has a lousy defense for the most part. This ain't the Ravens or 49'ers. If we can't do it here, then enough with the Bowles/Moore love fest.

If they can, we will have shown something we've lacked...
Matt held it way too long...folks, it is what it is.

Was he waiting for a sack

Agree Mando...

the dolphins better watch out Mr Mo is going to the evil empire

WE'RE OFFICIALLY IN "MELTDOWN" MODE FELLA'S!

ROLLER COASTER RIDE, ANYONE?

Pick 6 coming

What a surprise ... Columbo!

Look at the offical pushing...Clean his clock

IS this where we get lulled into a false sense of security with the lead and momentum only to have it change in the second half Posted by: SoiledBottom | December 24, 2011 at 02:08 PM

Dooohhhh

WELL, BRIGHT SIDE IS, ITS NOT LIKE WE HAVENT SEEN THIS SCRIPT BEFORE!

Thanks Mando!

Jelly Bean, please, enough with the racist thing.

I guess we found a way to loose..

LET'S CALL IT 17-17 RIGHT NOW. WHY WAIT?

Pouncy has got to improve-or get replaced-all these high snaps + drops between him and Moore are unacceptable

I'm no racist. You must be a racist if you are saying that.

You said it Mando 'instincts', one of the intangibles that set some apart. Some are now putting this on an interim coach to prove what he has, seriously?

... And suddenly the Dolphins can't pressure Brady? Crazy!

So where did all the Bowles fans scurry off too? What sissies. You have no conviction. Fickle like girls.

We are still punishing the receivers, it may pay off with a fumble?...hope so

Bell-knock the stuffing out of them-make them pay

Do you think Tony Sparano is at home gameolanning on how he would lose this game ?

THE SCRIPT:

OFFENSE PUTS DEFENSE IN HOLE AND DEFENSE CANT GET STOPS. WE SHOULD HAVE IT MEMORIZED BY NOW!

This has got to stop-or we'll get a franchise QB

Why does it feel like Miami is down 10 points?

That didn't take very long

So where did all the Bowles fans scurry off to? What sissies. You all have no conviction. Fickle like girls.

Where is the jelly bean head ? Damn u look silly. Lol

we will be shortly
