Dolphins whip Jets 30-9 and make a statement

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- What a woodshed whipping this was.

The Dolphins, overtime losers to the Jets in the first meeting at Sun Life, flipped the script today by basically dominating the home team 30-9 and capturing second place in the AFC East.

So what does this mean beyond the standings?

It gives you a tangible measure of how much Miami is improving. Understand that on Sept. 23, the Jets could argue they were better than Miami. They went to Miami and, like it or not, came away with a win.

Now, a month later, the Dolphins have grown to the point that New York was blown out by halftime in their own house. And Miami did it with their backup QB, Matt Moore, who played three quarters for the injured Ryan Tannehill.

[Update: Tannehill said after the game he has a hyper-extended left knee and a deep left thigh bruise. He is scheduled for an MRI Monday.]

That says a lot, folks.

Tons.

Again, Craig.

Devlin is a better qb than Moore! He plays within the system a lot better! Plus, he's younger! And I know PreSeason means nothing! But Devlin was the best Qb on the team!

Pat Devlin is T-Hill's Caddy! The Backup of the future!

Now on The Most Over Paid LB Duo!!!!!

Dashi is not wrong!! Dansby and Burnett are not worth $16+ Million!!!!!!

Specially with Teo Sitting there In the First Round! U can pay Teo less than $3million a yr on his rookie contract! And he will produce more than the dynamic Duo combined!

Again Dansby is a Above average OLB! And Burnett is just average! Add that they are both over 30 and are injury prone! And U can't justify paying the both of them $16 million for mediocre Performance!

Perfect example! Olivier Vernon! The kid is getting paid less than $500k! And he has more impact plays than Burnett and probably as many as Dansby!

Heck, Trusnik is better than Burnett!

Right now it's Dansby,Misi, and Trusnik as our best LB's! With OV getting Honorable mention! Because he plays LB on 3rd Down!

Yeah sure Delvin is better them Moore, and your mother is better then the happy hooker, keep stirring the pot moron

Craiig. If they keep Moore that's fine. Not saying they should get rid of him just for the sake of it. My point is that, unlike the Fins of late I'd like for this franchise to think about the future as much as the next game. Remember when the Cowboys got rid of Herschel? Or the Pats of Seymour? The Steelers played hard ball with Mike W and would've no problem in getting rid of him? We as fans always say things like 'we should always have 2 good QBs', 'star rushers or WR are hard to find and you should resign no matter what', etc, but great GMs have no problem trading these players if that means helping your franchise in the future (with cap relief or extra picks). If Philbin proved he could win with a crappy 7th rounder in GB why wouldnt he do it with a Devlin? If moving Moore and giving us picks AND still playing well because our coaching staff and their system is great why wouldn't we do it? Lastly, you say Moore is better than .500 but his record says otherwise. Guy has been in this league what, 7-8 years? In all that time I haven't seen anything special from him

Pyrrhic Victory.......every knowledgeable fan knows Jets' No. 1 goal was to knock Tannehill out for rest of season, so the door is open for GangGreen to surge forward.

Mission Accomplished!

Jets atop division in three weeks.....Tannehill will never play another down in this league.

J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets!

WE DON T EVEN KNOW HOW HURT TANNY IS YET , HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY TALK ABOUT TRADING YOUR BACK UP , WAKE UP AND GET OVER YOURSELVES , YOU`VE BEEN PLAYING TOO MUCH FANTASY FOOTBALL!!!!!

Didn't the Rams get dominated by the Pats and beat by the Phins....enough said

Fireman Ed Jr. Jets can't win, Sparano has you playing as well as we did last year. We get the last laugh!!!

Gotta make dinner.
Hope everyone has a great week, and a SAFE week for those in the path of Sandy.

DOLPHINS WIN!!!!!!!

The Dolphins dominated the Jets and when it was 17-0 I knew it was over.Forget that they scored 9 that was like a shutout the score will only be revelant in tiebreaker scenarios.IMO the Jets offense sucks after watching this game and Ryan should at least try Tebow at QB for an entire game or try something drastically different before remaining ststus quo and losing the next one as such

They weren't "showcasing" Moore---that's ludicrous. They simply had a hammerlock on the game and there was no reason whatsoever to risk Tannehill being further injured even though he himself said he could have gone back in had it been necessary.

Tremendous win today!

BPA and others,
long is also a fa next year and his play has been average plus he is a little injure prone. he has big trade value and martin is better at LT anyway. big upside on what we'd get for him. shop him around and see what offers u get.we have enough picks to replace him with a younger skilled RT.

As for that clown 'Fireman Ed,' I hope he's still sitting there by himself, shivering and wet in an empty, dark stadium.

Dez Bryant sure drops a lot of passes....

FIREMEN ED , YOUR A LOSER, LIKE YOUR JETS , THEY ARE A DIRTY FOOTBALL TEAM, AND TO PROVE IT THEY HONORED BYRD TODAY , HE GOT HURT TRYING TO SPEAR ANOTHER TEAMS QB , BUT HIS OWN TEAM MATE GOT IN WAY AND BROKE HIS NECK , ITS CALLED KARMA, HOPEFULLY SANDY GIVES YOUR HOUSE A BIG WET KISS A-HOLE

DR. Roberts:

Dad's home, taking the long view......no more Tanny = Fins threat OVER TIME diminished....you won today, but you lost QB for season.

Pity.

Matt Moore has little hands!

Pat Devlin is more Accurate! He makes the safer PLAY!

Matt Moore has more Experience that's it!

Devlin plays the position! Like Pennington! Not as talented! But he plays the position with his mind not his arm!

Now should Devlin start over Moore? No!

But we don't have to worry about the future! From next season on T-Hill is the Starter! Devlin is the Caddy!

Now that doesn't mean don't take a guy with a 6th rounder! If Matt Barkley is Sitting there! Go right ahead!

But yes! Devlin is better than Mr. I can't eat a Whooper!

optimistic. im torn about Long. He ihas been one of the few bright spots for the last couple of years and is still a great player. an off year for him is still a really good year for 90% of tackles in this league. with that said, his contract is crazy and what he may command in FA could not be in the best interest of this team. It's one of those situations where we may end up paying a lot of money to a player that may not see a lot of time because of injuries or that his actual play may not be on par with his salary

Yep cmon guys, I was the"retard" who suggested trading Moore and Long earlier. But I just meant if somebody comes calling with an offer we can't refuse, we can survive the loss of either player this season.
Next season we could become a serious contender already as we are, imagine if we had another No 1 for Long.
Now if either player declared they would sign extensions for reasonable money then I'd say keep them but letting a stud like Long leave for nothing potentially makes me feel a little sick.
As for the fins, I love the direction of this team with Tannehill and the coaching along with the developement of young players the future finally looks bright for us and I'm fine with whatever happens this season. I just hope we don't lose big time in FA this offseason.

Giants turn the Cowboys over 6 times...4 Romo picks.....

Giants win....

RETARDO AND DOTHEADSHI, GO PLAY YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL ELSEWHERE, TIRED OF YOU TWO THINKING YOU KNOW HOW TO RUN A FOOTBALL TEAM, YOU MAKE THE STUPIDEST REMARKS , DID DELVIMN GIVE YOU A BETTER HAND JOB THEN MOORE, HAVE YOU EVER SEEN MOORE`S HAND SIZE EFFECT THE WAY HE THROWS THE BALL? , GEEZ YA`S MAKE ME SICK WITH YOUR NONSENSE

Congratulations Coach Philbin.
You made a lot of friends today.

See ya in the cellar Wets...

we beat the colts next week, we r in 1st place!! pats have a bye

sweeet

go fins

Fireman Ed Junior? Really???

Bwahhahahawahhhaha!

Bwahahahahaha!!!!! What an @ss whoopin! The Jets are no OFFICIALLY done! Posers, frauds, malcontents! Not only do I not see any Jets fans posts, I also don't see any of the so called Dolphins "fans" that seem to hate this team. Where are you all at now? This team isn't ready for the Super Bowl yet, but it is finally coming together with the right coach and a roster filled with Jeff Ireland(NOT BILL PARCELLS) draft picks. I don't want to hear any more BS about Ireland should be fired. This guy has put up with more crap than any GM should ever have to. He's put together a fine roster and is only a couple of players away from having an excellent team. Look at his late rounders and free agents that are making plays! STFU about how poorly he rates talent! He's been amazing and his draft picks are proof of it. You have to give players a chance to delevop for a couple of seasons before throwing in the towel on them. Great job Ireland, Philbin, and both coordinators!!!!! I don't care how the rest of the year goes because I know this team is on the way to being really good. AND......the Jets are DONE!!! Time to rebuild already.

Holy crap if that TD stands it will be an awful monday in NY

Thats no TD.....

Bryant being a DIVA for NOTHING.....and he won't be able to play the next down....

Did I mention that the Jets are DONE????? Bwahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!

The Jets were done the moment they thought signing Sparano to improve their offense would be a good thing. Was funny then and its damn hilarious now :)

Bryant doesn't know he can't play....after faking his injury.....LOL....

they kept Bryant on the sideline....

Bryant back in....1 second left.....

Romo thru it OUT of the end zone....you can't do that....that's Henne like....

Cowboys game good game.

Zz

mags1972,
not a retart to suggest the trade of long. not sure about moore, could be more valueable as backup as to what his trade value is. only a few teams looking for QB's and the ones that are will draft for that position. draft is deep with tackles this yr and long culd bring a 1st or 2nd and maybe a impact corner or LB for him. just sayin.

One Thing people...Stop loving Ireland so much, the best thing to happen to that idiot is Philbin and Sherman...All he did right was to realized he is always wrong and listen to the two new sheriffs in town...IN PHILBIN I TRUST

so huge to kill that garbage jets team, sparano is awful. have to get thill back next week, hope mri tomm shows nothing. cannot afford to halt his progress. colts fins battling for wildcard and game will be huge for tie breakers

Matt Moore fumbles a lot! Because his hands are to little to hold a football!

And fool hand and arm length are measured at the combine! Ur the one who doesn't know what ur talking about! Ur just a casual observer!

Perfect example! The reason edge was picked over Ricky!

Sanchez probably has the same problem! Look it up! Could care less about Sanchez! But Dashi knows Sanchez has a fumble problem!

These next 2 games against the Colts and Titans are going to be so important. Win both and it will give the Dolphins the important tie breakers. I really do see a great possibility that the Dolphins could win their next 5 games and be 8-3. How awesome is that.

By the NFL ranking system the Dolpins are currently 4th in the CONFERENCE....FOURTH guys...tied with Indy and Pit..if the Playoffs were to start today, we would be the 5th seed, ahead of Indy with Pit on the outside looking in....WOW

We beat them fair and square. That is all that matters. However I am not going overboard in gloat mode. They beat us too. They came off an exhausting game against NE and we came off a bye. We should have won, and we did, but let's not think we so far ahead of them based on this one game.

u mean next 4, we are already 4-3. next 4 we will be favored in all of them. then tough games vs pats and niners

Dashi,

You're talking complete and total SHYTE again. Matt Moore comes in after Tannehill goes down for the day and leads the team to victory. How are his hands even relevant to the conversation? Stick with things that are relevant. Like the money that's being paid to the linebackers. Who gives a Sh*t! It's not your money so stop complaining about it. Only thing that matters is that this team keeps winning and they've won three in a row.

Last point, if Devlin is a better QB than Moore, how come he's inactive every week while Moore is the backup? How come Devlin wasn't handed the backup job right out of camp. Answer? Because he's not and you're talking shyte.

Randy S, I spent game time watching Jets lose AND posting trash on THEIR blogs. Which is why I wasn't posting HERE. numerous Jets fans wish to kill me and my family, feels GREAT!!!

plain dumb argument. moore is def better than a guy who has never even taken an nfl snap. get real moore is what hes always been, a solid backup

bill,

I happen to think the Colts will be favoured at home but I'm saying by something like a 1.5. Let's see. I could be wrong. I think a lot will depend on the health of Tannehill.

@ Craig M | October 28, 2012 at 08:26 PM

Well put. I trust the coaching staff can evaluate the QB's better than us home gamers. Maybe Devlin has potential, and that is great, but today, right now, if he was clearly better I'd have to believe he'd be the #2. Moore closed out last season on a high note and led us to victory in Jetland so I don't see how anyone can still be questioning the coaches having him at #2.

Everybody loves my moon babies!

I DONT, COLTS LOST AT HOME TO JACKSONVILLE, BARELY BEAT BROWNS

Zilo,

I happen to like Devlin too but this idea that he's better than Moore at this point is idiotic. Where's the proof?

I have to admit, wasn't feeling Burnett before the Season. Boy was I wrong on that one. He's played great. Hell, even Clemons is coming along (slowly). Only guy I still have doubts about is Clay, doesn't look like he's improving. Vernon looks legit. We have a crop of young players that are hungry. Can't believe the difference a year makes.

Correction to Connors....

THE FINS are battling for an QFC EAST CROWN.....NOT for a Wild Card....

like it love it...that's the way it is.....

At least we know now was going on the Matt Moore is the starter. Diatribes!

Fool reread what I said!

Never did I say Devlin should be the starter!

Again, I'm talking to U about qb's!

Talking football period! Not ur strong suit!

AFC

Fins win next week, we're TIED FOR FIRST PLACE!!!

I like what I saw out of Devlin in pre-season. I really have no way to know what his ultimate potential is. There is no substitute for game time experience, reading and reacting to defenses, and on that front, there is no argument Moore is way ahead of him. He has the trust and respect of his offense too, another biggie that has to be earned.

DC,

I'm not a fan of Clemmons but he played well today. Burnett plats well every game. Clay I'm not a fan of. Guy just doesn't look like he's into it. Thoas played very well today too. Not hearing too many 'he's a bust' comments after today. I like the way he lowered his shoulders a few times. The guy's a load to bring down.

Lego Lageman or AKA Resident Blog Troll isn't talking such big shyt now, is He?

His little but buddy Tebags might as well have laid them on his chin because he was a NON FACTOR. Begining of Tebag story, END of Tebag STORY!

ROTFLMFAO! Lets see Fageman, every singkle one of your ridiculous predictions were WRONG(what do you know, just like your "Home" persona Bhwaaa Haaaa Haaaa!).

If you remember right Fageman, when you were running your yap and making all the WRONG calls, I kept telling you we would BLOW THEM OUT! Now didn't I!

So, did you come back like a man, apologize and make amends?

NOPE-LOL! Your pathetic style is to change your name AGAIN. Taking it to Hissy Fits preoportions your now impersonating people-LOL!

You Sir are just as pathetic as Tim Tebow and his New York Wanna-Be's.

Take THAT Troll Breath-Bhwaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaa!!!!

the dashi is a worthless d i c k w a d
GET LOST

the dashi = odin
GET LOST

Dashi....

If I can weigh-in on the Delvin conversation.....

BEFORE the season started....I said that the FINS would win 11 games REGARDLESS of who plays QB....

well I got to admit....Delvin never even entered that equation...

REGARDLESS= Garrard...Tanne...Moore.....

Why are we talking about Delvin any way...most likely the kid NEVER see the field in a FINS uniform....
