Dolphins and Raiders tied to start second quarter

The Dolphins offense had a nice opening drive and Ryan Tannehill got his first NFL TD on a 2 yard run.

Good.

The bad?

The Raiders just pieced together a 64-yard screen pass TD in which Reshad Jones was held, Chris Clemons took a bad angle to the ballcarrier, Koa Misi got pancaked and Karlos Dansby could only trail helplessly as he watched the score.

The game is tied, 7-7.

take a knee here.

46 seconds...please just run the damn clock out.

JASON COLE ONCE TOLD ME THAT I WAS CORRECT THAT FOOTBALL COACHES ARE NOT ROCKET SCIENTISTS. I AM CORRECT EVEN THOUGH I'M NOT IN THE FOOTBALL BUSINESS.

WE LITERALLY NEED TO PLAY TO OUR STRENGTHS AND HAVE LANE, BUSH AND MILLER IN THEIR ON EVERY PLAY LINED UP BEHIND THE QB. AND RUN SOME KIND OF OPTION TYPE SPREAD OFFENSE LIKE THE FLORIDA GATORS DO.

THAT COULD NOT BE WORSE THAN WHAT WE ARE DOING.

Defense isnt the problem....Offense always HAS been...they better just take a knee and head into halftime greatful of being down by 3....

Yesterday's gone, Vernon was a beast at the u, just had injury issues.

Its 10-7, moron.

NC....

Plamer looking @ tape.....

weird huh....

I guess you are happier with 10-7? That makes sense.

It was a timely D-stand., We dodged a bullet there.
Thiggy won't get many chances with Janakowski.

GREAT RUNNING THE CLOCK OUT!! JUST QUIT ALREADY!!!

Stop uses caps. Ur idiocy is bad enough in small letters

Any fly overs ( Fire Jeff Ireland signs ) today ?

You suck, Philbin. The boos are deserved.

Wow, 2 timeouts and they just run the clock down? I know what happened last week, but Oakland does get the ball in the 2nd half

At this point, I say lest go for 0-16(1st overall pick), fire Ireland and get a real gm in the house.

I'M PROUD OF THE CROWD FOR BOOING.

Even on that play, Bush hesitated. Something not right.

This team is a joke. Two TOs and we kneel? Anybody who thinks these idiots are going to win needs mental help.

no one's giving up a one for Long.

Prolly no high-two either.

Long's shot.............Matty Ryan's coming into his own.

Thanks Tuna!

i is YG nd i think im jonny dep from pirates movie LOL i is blog famous, u is not LOL shazam!!!

6 QUARTERS. NO PASSING TDS FOR TANNE.

BUT HE HAS NO HELP

What I'm happy with is always trying to score, and not listening to dumbass fans like u saying we should run the clock our with six minutes left which is impossible anyways without at least trying to score. Idiot.

A knee? Really? This team has zero confidence. 46 secs is plenty of time.

INIMOUNTS YOU ARE A HOMER.

1-15 IF WE ARE LUCKYU.

MY COMMENTS ARE THE BEST SO I USE CAPS TO LET YOU READ

I'm sorry but a win today (or any wins this year) will not help this team. There's just WAY too many holes that need to be filled. It's not just the WR's & the CB's. The higher we draft next year--with a new GM--the better.

Boo these buffoons back tot he stone age. What an embarrassment this franchise has become.

You know Ireland is a joke when his only chance to keep his job is for Tannehill to blossom, yet he does nothing to improve the talent around him.

Boos werent for Philbin. They were for the garbage Ireland's put together.

Hey Joe, tell em we didn't win with that first drive!

inimounts, you are an idiot. Go get your meds, please.

defense is tired of always getting no help from their own offense..so yea their getting gashed....

Superphin,

Our Defense is tired??? In the first half??? Give me a break...

maybe they ought to have moore play the 2nd half and tannehill line up as reciever....cuz right now they aint doing sh%t on offense

Anybody have a link to the game?

StinkaPalooser 2012.

Leadership is horrendous. Another game that Joe Philbin is getting out coached. Embarrassing.

Sounds like you want to trade Long for Tebow?
LOL.
As if CAPS make it the truth.

Lol stfu about long seriously it was the same with Marshall....jets fans coming on here wanting us to get rid of the only stars we have. Long is the reason Reggie is good now. Long is everything good we have on offense, and u want draft picks.

IM
OFFICIALLY DON'T TALKING TO IDIOTS, JETS FANS, OR DUMBASSES WHO HAVE NEVER STEPPED ON A FOOTBALL FIELD.

This blog is for real fans only.

i is YG, y dont u like me? i dont care cuz i is god of this blog! charlie sheen says i is winner, u say i is loser, whos opinion matters? mine! LOL

Wow!!! TB is beating the Giants here in NY 24-13.

With 46 seconds, do you want to rely on the rookie to drive the length of the field?

Stick to madden, morons. Leave real football to men.

the problem is cam philbin's/sherman's dinosaur offense. yes it is a dinosaour offense. it is horrible

he is giving the team no chance

should have kept daboll

Who the hell hired this guy!!! He sucks, your down and you sit on the ball????

Tannehill has no one to throw to. Not for one down. It would get to me too.

A knee? A knee? Go for it! A knee is a Sparano call

45 seconds two timeouts and you're at home, take a knee. I'm no longer a Philbin supporter.

----------
Tannehill's had to TD passes dropped in 2 games.
Get a clue, man.

I just cant blame this talentless joke of a team on Philbin like some of you choose to do. Bellichik couldnt get good results with this crap. Neither could Shula in his prime.

Man we are not good. This is going to be a long season. The good news is I see no scenario where Ireland keeps his job after this season. So somebody else will at least be making those draft selections.

JJ,

Obviously. You sound surprised???

Frustrating last couple of minutes. Why not at least try a deep pass as our FG kicker is the best part of our offense.

0 - 16 on the horizon.....


A knee? Really? This team has zero confidence. 46 secs is plenty of time.

Posted by: Farik | September 16, 2012 at 02:30 PM

Maybe u should go watch last weeks game again buddy....zero confidence was what Irefiend has built this team off of...the best case now is for miami to play field position with the faiders and hope for a mistake by palmer..tanehill cannot make this offense go and asking him to march 45-50 yards to get into FG range with 45 secs left is just plain stupid after watching their inabilty to move the ball at all....

CUT LONG NOW

The same offense is being used in Greenbay and San fran. You know what the difference is? Aaron Rodgers, Jermichael Finnley, Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, Michael Crabtree, Vernon Davis, Frank Gore, Randy Moss, and Mario Manningham.

Just stop it

You guys seriously think the way this game's been going that this offense had ANY chance of doing ANYTHING the last 46 seconds? Other than the first drive, this offense has produced nothing. Yes, please, let's duplicate the epic meltdown of last week by seeing if we can give up EVEN MORE points with less than 5 minutes left!
Yes, you abso-freakin'-lutely run the clock out... whether they get the ball in the 2nd half or not!

Yeah, if Tannehill threw a pick 6 with 45 secs left, then you same geniuses would be bashing Philbin for not running out the clock.

Defense isnt the problem....Offense always HAS been...they better just take a knee and head into halftime greatful of being down by 3....

Superphin,

I disagree. Too many mistakes on defense. Palmer has too much time to throw, the receivers are wide open, & the tackling has been atrocious.

This team will be first team to go 0-17. On their bye week they are going to find a way to lose another game

Plenty of time for what? A good offense to move the ball, yes. This is not a good offense. Daboll... yes it's all about the schemes, lol.

Kevin Coyle & Sherman better light a fire under these guys a@@es at half time b/c we looked terrible after we scored.

Funny, Ziggy!

Man, I'd HATE to be a season-ticket holder!
