Patriots blow out Dolphins 28-0

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- If you wondered how wide the gulf between the Dolphins and a playoff team is, now you know.

The Dolphins are seemingly an ocean apart from the Patriots. And today's 28-0 loss here is proof.

Joe Philbin's team was never really in it. Never really fought. Never really seemed capable of staying with New England.

The Patriots offense dominated in every imaginable category -- first downs, time of possession, passing yards, rushing yards.

The Patriots defense set a team single-game high for the season with six sacks. And after establishing that mark, they added a seventh sack on the very next play.

And not only did Miami get beat but it got beat up.

Richie Incognito (neck), Kevin Burnett (concussion), Anthony Fasano (concussion) and Dimitri Patterson (ankle) all left the game and did not return.

Doesn't matter, however. The Dolphins season is over.

I want to live in a world where Ross fires Ireland.

Redskins aggressively scouted & pursued & acquired RG III.

Ireland aggressively scouted & pursued & acquired ?

Luck RG3 abs Wilson in the playoffs and were stuck with 11 TD 13 picks Tannehill and a lot of your are satisfied lol.

What do you mean Tanny lovers? We love our team so we support our rookie qb and hope he improves. That's what fans do. What team do you root for because it can't be the Phins if you're laughing at our misfortune and giving up on a rookie qb so quickly. Jets fan? Bitter that Sanchez blows? It doesn't make sense that you would call yourself a fan and act that way.

Tannehill = another Irescum bust

Hardcore @ 11:25....

Agree....but I still think he (Tanne) can use some competition......I hope he isn't handed the job unchallenged.....

Same folks counseled patience when Henne's putridity was identified by many of us on this blog.

Eff patience..............Luck took a two win team & RG III lead a poor team to glory.............while we are supposed to cheer how TannyFannt reads defenses?!?

HAH!

And "well known"??? By whom & how & in what game?

THill = Another failed post-13 experiment/project

The same morons that loved Henne love TanneBust.

Patience is loser talk. Tanny SUCKS!

Yup DustyB...........

Henne FanBoyz who defended him to the nitter end have come back in full force & inanity as TannyLovaz!

Phins78 admit Ireland is a catastrophe of a GM he's an alum of Baylor yet wouldn't even make an offer for ST Louis #1 pick. Sending Long and our number 1 would of got that pick over Washington. Noooo Ireland is unimagitive

Thats it for me.....

Congrats to RG3...and the Skins...

Congrats to Luck and the Colts....

Congrats to Wilson and the Seahawks....

and here is to hoping its Congrats to Tanne and the Phins in 2013.....

nitter ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,bitter......curse u QWERTY!

y'all know what it is,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Tanny is stuck in the Mud as RWilson Kapernick Dalton RG III Luck study film for playoffs.

Yeah Ireland isnt great so far. But we didn't have a shot at rg3 unless we gave up our whole draft. And we had far more holes to fill due to the mismanagement of the big fraud.

RG3 hasn't won a super bowl and may not even last long enough to get to one. He threw for 100 yds. Lets not annoint him the next coming of Montana. Hes a running qb like Vick. Good luck with that, almost got knocked out again twice tonight.

THE DOLPHINS DID IMPROVE FROM LAST YEAR'S TEAM (0-7 START REMEMBER). THIS SEASON WAS LOST IN THE PRE SEASON WHEN PHILBIN AND THE STAFF STARTED LISTENING TO SO-CALLED EXPERTS AND MAILED THE SEASON IN BY NOT FINDING RECEIVERS TO THROW TO WHEN KNOWING YOU WERE GOING TO START A ROOKIE QB EVENTUALLY. REMEMBER KEEPING NAANEE AND CUTTING 7-11 AND CHAD JOHNSON. REMEMBER THE DOLPHINS WERE PICKED TO WIN MAYBE 4 GAMES. HAD THE STAFF DONE THEIR DAMN JOB THIS TEAM WOULD HAVE WON AT LEAST 10 GAMES.(JETS,ARIZONA,BILLS)THEY DECIDED THAT BY PLAYING A ROOKIE QB THEN THIS WOULD BE A EXCUSE IF WE DID NOT WIN. THEY WERE WRONG. DESPITE ONLY ONE REAL WEAPON TO THROW TO TANNEHILL STILL SHOWED HE CAN AND WILL BE A GOOD QB. NOW IF IRELAND DOES NOT GET IT RIGHT THIS OFF SEASON HE SHOULD BE FIRED BEFORE THE 5TH GAME. THE DOLPHINS NEED TO START NEXT SEASON SHOWING IMMEDIATE IMPROVEMENT. WE ARE AHEAD OF THE BILLS AND JETS FOR NOW AND CANNOT LET THOSE TEAMS PASS US WITH ALL THESE DRAFT PICKS AND CAP SPACE. 2013 IRELAND IF TEAM STARTS THE FIRST 4 GAMES WITH A LOSING RECORD YOU MUST BE FIRED! AS FANS WE SHOULD DEMAND BETTER! DON'T PUT A GOOD PRODUCT ON THE FIELD DO NOT SHOW UP!

"our whole draft," when conducted by Jeffy equals pile of putrid poop.

Thank you Phins78 @ 11:23. I don't get the goofy, impatient fans. Frickin' Drew Brees, the next coming of Jesus Christ, didn't do sh.t his 1st 3 years. If any of the moronic, so-called Dolphin fans had a say in his 1st years at San Diego, he would be driving a UPS truck now. I like Tannehill and think he is going to be good one for us. He's real smart, doesn't get down on himself, great scrambler (lucky for him with our quick to mail it in left and right tackles), throws very well on the run and will only get better when he gets a couple more good receivers to throw to. I like Hartline and Bess (and Fasano), but he needs that fast, tall, physical WR with GOOD HANDS! I think goofball Ireland will get him that WR next year. I'm glad I have the same opinion as our coaching staff and am not like one of the mis-informed , rabid fans looking for change, just for change's sake.

Is anyone else getting that Chad Henne deja vu?

The Dolphins are WORSE the dog poop.

The Seer they were the two best qbs coming out of college since 1983. Best QBs in the country, no debate. Tannehill was known as a project. Has something changed that makes you arrogantly think you know something that someone else doesn't? You were calling Henne a bust in his first year? That's funny because he didn't even play.

Phins78 you know nothing about RG3 you hater. The guy is second in the league in QB ratings. As a rookie that's unheard of. Hes pass, ran for more TDs then your boi Tannehill. Well be lucky if Tannehill will be as good as RG3 his rookie season! Take your blind homer glasses off please.

Kapernick and Dalton arent rookies. They also played qb since highschool. Glad you're so happy at our teams failures. Quite the fan you are.

The dolphins are in a great position to close the gap, rookie QB who has a chance, I know a lot of you clowns want to bail on the guy after one season but that's not gonna happen, rookie coach who handled himself quite well this year, I know a lot of you clowns would have rather had Fiisher, but you would be killing him if he was here, Ireland is gonna get one more offseason like it or not, 5 picks in the first 3 rounds plus 46 mil in cap space. Instead of crying about why 7-9 wasn't progress, which nobody thought was attainable after the pre season, lets look at what opportunities lie ahead to close the gap. If we don't come out and win 10 games next year, Ireland is gone and things will change AGAIN, but I think the worm is turning and good things will happen to Miami dolphins starting in 2013. Our roster will look drastically different than it did today and don't tell me Buffalo or the NYJ are in better positions than the Miami dolphins, How about Cleveland, San Diego, Kansas City, Oakland, all in trouble, no money, no picks. Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, really that much better, heck we beat Ciincy in cincy. Craig is right, not satisfied. See you on draft day, go phins.

Some people like Phins 78 are just slow. In a year or 2 he'll agree Tannehill sucks.

i am convinced that tannehill is going to be good. the dolphins receiving core is absolute garbage...a lot of them shouldn't even be in the league. they are basically asking him to be perfect on every pass.

Tannehill is Henne.

Andrew has handed intellectually whipped craig m this entire thread yet, craig m is prancing along as if hes superior. What a friggin ego on thes a**clown!

As I & MANY of us have asked you, GET OVER YOURSELF!

Kris,
I agree with you on Romo vs. Henne. I have the Sunday Ticket and have been watching Henne somewhat the last few weeks and he has not changed. He puts up some decent #'s, but makes the same critical mistakes at bad times like he did with the Dolphins.

On Garret and Romo, was watching the Dan Patrick show a couple weeks ago and he reported a Dallas HC search was quietly under way then. Knowing Jerry Jones, I don't see Garrett getting another season and when he goers, another HC will bring in another QB, probably via FA because of the QB thin draft coming in April. I will go on a limb to say that Garret is fired tomorrow morning, along with Rex Ryan and Norv Turner. Regardless of the HC situation in Dallas, expect Romo to have heavy competition in camp next year, because he will be there, but not necessarily be given the keys.

Stillhardcore dont read anything in here and equate it to what real dolphins fans feel. The posts about Tannehill are from a bitter fan of another team whos sole purpose is to bad mouth our team on one of our teams blogs. For some reason it makes him feel better about himself. But dont be fooled, all of those one sentence irescum and tannybust posts are all the same person. He says the same thing over and over under tons of different names. Its sad.

***MY MIDNIGHT RANT (ALMOST)***

The only way you will ever get anywhere is through a QB. Not just any QB a QB that all of US understand will make a difference. LUCK, RGIII, Manning, Manning (G men), and the rest.

REAL owners sell the house o draft REAL QB's. We WERE in the running for LUCK but the team won meaningless games that took us out of that spot. We COULD HAVE drafted RGIII, but again... The team won meaningless games which took us out of that spot and the Skins did what the Fins could have done to get the kid.

THIS Team only scored 288 points this season. When you compare that to the mean average of almost 400 like the rest of the league we ARE and will ALWAYS be what we are.

As I said before the season started we would go 6 -10 and at BEST 7 -9 the numbers speak for themselves.

The ONLY way this organization will EVER have a fighting chance will come when THIS owner Deputy Dog Ross grows a set and fires Jeff "THE SCOUT" Ireland.

We are left with Tuna helpers and we must purge this organization of all the lest over crap that Parcells brought in here.

Until that happens I stand by my predictions for next season. Look for more of the same...

2013 season predictions (as long as Ireland is here)

5-11 and at best 6-10.

BTW.. My assessment of the rookie HC is as expected, I put Philbin on a scale 1 - 10 at a neutral 5-.

Philbin will NEVER succeed as long as Ireland is here.

And my message to those on here that keep drooling over Tannehill. Just remember if Barkley came out tannehill would have NEVER been pumped up by the media.

at BEST Tannehill was a late 2nd round to mid 3rd round draft pick AT BEST. NOT a first rounder.

So until next time, have a Happy new year.

Truth rg3 played great this season. Who said he didnt? I said he hasnt won anything yet so calm down. Also if youre not a fin fan why do you hang out in here? Its f%&*ing pathetic.

Four losing seasons in a row. Is Jeff Ireland really coming back?

Another insiteful post "tony nathan". Why don't you tell me why Tannehill will never succeed? Put your money where your mouth is, what makes you think he will be a failure?

I am me, joined here by plenty of others who recognize Tannyhill for what he is.

I am a fan of no other team, but I am sick and tired of seeing mediocrity defended on this blog.

Ireland's in wayyyyyy over his head, and Tanny ain't no answer.

It took y'all a few years to see Henne's incompetence.....apparently it will take a few more til you see Tannehill is just another guy.

Ha Ha Ha!

Mikey Blatzo and all of Mando's Troll Boy incarnations is here running down the Phins.

Yet, the Troll Boy loser is COMPLETELY MUM on **HIS** 2-14 prediction.

The best I can tell, **BOTH** of the resident Troll Boys here made the WORST predictions out of anyone. TOGETHER, they couldn't have been more wrong.

Bhwaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Haaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

What up Losers? Care to comment on your atrocious(so-called)predictions?

Crickets...............(LMAO!)...........?

Hey Seer and Dusty Bottoms: Neither RG3, Luck, Manning, Brady, or fu.king Johnny Unitas could have overcome our roster deficiencies! Our team needs more players. I can only hope Ireland is up to the task because he's not going anywhere this upcoming season. Now, on Tanny, I think he will be a good one for us. If he excells next year, you 2 naysaying, non-Dolphin fan, morons better change your names on here (again!), because I have the memory of an elephant and I will be calling you 2 non-Dolphin fans out. I promise you.

Oh, did I mention you 2 are not real Dolphin fans? In case I didn't, YOU AREN'T!

Phins78, ur pathetic. No one wants to read u chastize every blogger. Especially this late at night. Go find a girl and help her fall asleep like I just did.

Better that than crying aout other bloggers here liking a menopausal gypsy!

Patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels.

I may be wrong. You may be right. (BTW---our "talent" around THill is Ireland's doing). But I am a Fin fan......embarrassed by the FanBoyz here who see double rainbows & sparkly ponies when they watch Tannehill & Ireland's guys stink up the field.

We got drubbed by the friggin' Titans, Dude. Remember that, among other displays of mediocrity??

Phins78:

There is only 1, maybe 2 A-holes on this blog. They (or he) posts under several names, lest he get called out and ridiculed. Remember, this pathetic A-hole hides out in his room at his Mom's house, he has no real career and DEFINITELY has no woman, or even a steady piece of ass because of his pathetic nature, his meager wallet and pasty-white skin. When he is not arguing worthless, indefensible points on this blog, he is with his other similar friends competing in a circle-jerk contest. Please don't pay this loser any mind, because he really is a pathetic moron.

But nyg you just disproved your own point. Had Barkley come out he would have been a HUGE bust just like every other USC QB. Did you see him this year? Dropped so far hes considered second round now. This qb class sucks.

You people accusing others of wearing blinders dont even have eyeballs. If we have blinders on you are just plain blind. Not one person in here is "drooling over tannehill". Thats the first point that proves you are blind.

We understand that Tanny was the pick and thats it. We understand he needs to get better but has all the tools, MORE THAN HENNE EVER DREAMED OF HAVING. Read an NFL defense,,,,CHECK. Not check down to rbs on every f%&$ing throw,,,CHECK. Has full support from teammates,,,,CHECK. True offensive play caller with on the field leadership qualities and bal%$,,,CHECK. Learns from mistakes,,,CHECK. Throws well on the run,,,,CHECK. Can run with speed,,,,CHECK.

So to anyone who wants to compare Tannehill to Henne look at that list and tell me which of those attributes Henne had. Not f&%$ing one. He had a strong arm,THATS WHERE THE COMPARISON STOPS.

PHINS 78.......... WHY DON'T YOU ASK ARMANDO ,DONKEY AND LET CRAIG DEFEND HIMSELF ..........................

Posted by: ALoco | December 30, 2012 at 07:54 PM

For a guy that dodges EVERY question thrown his way, he didn't waste any time sticking up for the Troll that was making himself look stupid in his attacks on Craig.

Hmmmmmmmmm...........never has anything to say, never posts an opinion, but defends the Troll at the drop of a hat.

Don't look now, but.........**BUSTED**.........LOL!

And comparing him to the two best qbs coming out of college in the country in the past 30 years is equally as retarded. It doesn't make anyone smart to point out the obvious.

Agreed 100% hardcore.

Odinseye, "Aloco"got a bad spanking today and is regrouping trying to come up with new aliases. Hes a phony who never answers direct questions. He doesn'deserve to be addressed as he isn't real. As soon as we got him going he messed up and gave away two of his other aliases. He's not even smart enough to lie to complete strangers on the internet. Pathetic waste of human ejaculate.

Hard to believe its been 12 years since the Dolphins last won a playoff game.

The scedule was a soft one and we went 7 and 9 and your excited about that. Lol The Canadian cold must of froze some of though brain cells of yours.

Posted by: Clue | December 30, 2012 at 07:55 PM

"Clue" predicted we would win 2 games all year. Tannehill, Ireland and Philbin more than tripled that.

And he wants to talk "Soft Schedule" excuses?

ROTFLMAO!

That's Rich!

Wtf troll?! You always have so much to say and then disappear when I arrive. What gives? Dont want to stick around to debate your moronic short sighted opinions?

Odinseye, that clue guy was giving Craig crap about being from Canada earlier. Said he lived near the borderlines and misspelled half the words in his post. He really showed him. Showed him exactly how stupid so many Americans actually are today. Seriously, it's getting embarrassing.

Hey, ya gotta be a sado masochist to still be a Dullfin fan.

Reggie Bush wants out of this cespool franchise.

NY G......

just read your post.........Right On!

"grows A set" & fires Ireland...that's the first step to heal this decade-plus wound........And it's do-able. And it ought to be done ASAP.

Seriously, it's getting embarrassing.

No joke Sherlock!

Phins78 please give us a favor and go Fock your mom. So now your an English teacher grading my misspellings. Seriously get a life you scumbag and Odin I predicted 7 wins you loser stay off the crack please..

It'll take 4 years AFTER Ireland is fired to just be competitive. Thanks Ross.

Salary cap space free agents draft picks.
WoW! That's what fans are excited about!
Well not on this app but others! Pathetic!
Like that going to get this team better! Well?
Maybe if JI the clown goes work for the Jets! That will bring excitement back to the PHINS. Ross put your money where your month is go it a GM money can buy! Than come back and talk to us about your stability and new stadium ideas! Than can take this pot of gold silver unpolished gems that we have coming in the off season and give it to some one that know what THE F U C K TO DO WITH IT!!! Thanks you fool!!

Seriously get a life you scumbag and Odin I predicted 7 wins you loser stay off the crack please..

Posted by: Clue | December 31, 2012 at 12:26 AM

Yeah...........but ah.........NO!

You didn't. Would you like me to get Monkey Boy to repost your **ORIGINAL** prediction?

Didn't think so.................(duh)...........

Every time Wes Welker caught a pass, I realized that the Miami Dolphins organization created this mess over years of stupid decisions...like Welker, Ninkovich...and so many more.

I have become accustomed to watching who New England and New York (Jets) pick up from Miami...in New England the leftovers prosper, in New York they play worse. Whoever evaluates talent for New England has put Miami where it is today.

odin read this mornings blog where YG explains the simple arithmetic D Thomas cost us only 2 picks, not 3.

MATT BARKLEY IS BETTER THEN TANNEHILL RIGHT NOW!

Get whoever Odin I predicted 7 wins and what do you know that's what it is. Stop making up BS posts about how I suggested the Dolphins would win 2 games your slandering my good name.
