Live blog: Dolphins vs. Panthers

It's all there for the Dolphins today.

No, really, by the end of the day the Dolphins could find themselves alone in second place in the AFC East, only one game out of first place if the following scenario happens:

The Dolphins beat Carolina. The Jets and Pats lose games they may very well lose.

But ...

The Dolphins have to do their part. First. Foremost.

They must beat a team that has won six consecutive games.

The Dolphins inactives today are no surprise: C Mike Pouncey, G Danny Watkins, CB Dimitri Patterson, QB Mike Gillislee, QB Pat Devlin, and DT Isaako Aaitui.

So Nolan Carroll starts at CB. The offensive line is the same as last week with Sam Brenner at left guard and Nate Garner at center.

That sukkkks to play 4 deep with 8 sec to go. Oh, well...

Matthews should have held on to that ball. Absolutely no excuse. He caught it. HOLD ON! Don't blame the refs. Be a man, CATCH THE BALL!

LOTS TO BE HAPPY ABOUT RIGHT NOW!

THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST COACHING STAFF I HAVE EVER SEEN ON ANY LEVEL IN MY LIFETIME!!!!

The rule says can't hit a defenseless receiver. Now if that's not it I don't know what is. Might as well get rid of that rule than.

That was ridiculous how do they get 3 points there? That gives the panthers momentum and they get the ball first in the second half.

I am concerned. I still remember he Patriots game where the fins left 17-0 at the half.

WTF was that on D.

No way to play a two minute D.

16-6. Should have been 20-3 at Halftime.

We could have had this one in the bag. why the hell do you not take 3 shots at the endzone there, can anyone answer that ?

What kind of loser sits at a keyboard typing frantically away during a game?

Bunch of weirdos.

That was the most awful defensive series we've had today. Just let the gut run to field goal range. FG could come back to haunt us.

Bad field goal to give up. Add in we have been down there THREE TIMES and only came away with FGs really bothers me. We should have put this team away already. Need to score TD'S. Good first half but still worred.

dusty, what ever happened to bill connors? Why the change?

SITTING IN END ZONE WTF!!! WE WILL LOSE NOW

That's why we lose games guys. No killer instinct to go for the juggler. We need 10 yards for a touchdown and go 3 plays and 5 yards. Newton goes down the field in less than a minute with no time outs and we give them 3 freebie points with soft defense. Hope the fins can hang on

I HOPE VOLCANO CITY WINS TODAY!

ALSO, I PREDICT THE WICHITA BUZZARDS WILL DEFEAT THE COLUMBUS VAMPIRE LESBIANS 31-14.

Great bloggers, who can multi-task my friend.

Its not really that hard if you have the will.

Well this is the sad truth about our sorry arse coaching staff. That last series was simply inexcusable. A team with no TOs to get a gift FG like that?

We were wrong this is not Ireland's fault, this team has talent but this coaching staff is not up to it.

Bobby, you're right to be worried the way the half ended. If we don't make adjustments and come out flat 2nd half like we usually do, it'll be a huge letdown.

We have beaten the crap out of them in the 1st half. Of course everybody knows is not over under any means

montreal, dusty bottoms is a character in a great movie. name the movie without google. thats why maybe i should take myself more serious like yourself and start calling people names. back to the game, that fg could sure comeback to bite them

This feels like Pats game, we play great first half, but give up momentum and get crushed in the second half.

agree fin29

29, couldn't agree with you more. Garbage FG given up.

another problem facing Miami is the fact that they haven't been able to put teams away....perfect example at the end of the half....Carolina no TOs left and they still manage to use 40+ seconds and score at the end of the half...


This game is still very much in reach for as much as the defense has looked good and that's concerning.....

Missed TD picked up penalty then allow FG will cost us game

Cam looks to have taken a concusion after that Wake hit.

Man we can't have anymore of those FG's if we get the ball inside the 10.

Matthews was hit late to the helmet and the refs pulled that flag off the floor. That was a BS call and the league should never have that ref back to officate a game after that.

I am stunned that the fins were not defending the sidelines there. It is OK to give up the yards but you cannot allow him to go out of bounds. This coaching staff is lost. That is on the defensive coordinator and Philbin for not calling the right defense with 8 seconds left. Ridiculous!

Amazing, the Dolphins just allow a FG as if they were giving a candy.
What a waste of opportunities for scoring TDs.
Hope the nightmerish 2nd half against the revolting Patriots wont repeat this game.
The defense must stalk Newton the 2nd half, and T-hill must take risks in the endzone as well as coaches.

MORE SCORES COMING IN NOW:

SPOKANE SYRUP GODS 14, EL PASO PINA COLADAS 10

PENSACOLA VOMITING PARAKEETS 23, FRESNO AMPUTEES 10

LOL Marco...

Dolphins have had problems all year long finishing games. They need to keep it up. Don't give them a reason to believe they can come back and win.

A Belichick team will never allow a half to end like that even if they had a bad game. Total lack of concentration and placency. Pathetic. Too much talent, crappy coaching.

Once again......Tanehill has underthrown two passes. We were lucky enough that Mike Wallace was so open he had time to come back and still catch them. When do they say, "Damn, Ryan! You really can't throw a deep ball!"

We should have at the very least 2 TDs on the board.

On the Matthews play... I would have been ok if it were a non call, it was a bang bang play.

They threw they flag though and the rule states you can't hit a defenseless receiver in the neck or head area.

Why do you pick up he flag?? That sucked.

DolPhan in Montreal.....they have a reason to believe they can come back. They are playing the Dolphins with Tannehill as their QB...

Tanny still cant seem to get the ball deep enough to Wallace either, Wallace had an easy walk in TD on that 2nd throw but again the ball thrown too short and Wallace has to wait an week for the ball to come down and leads to another Miami FG....

DULUTH NAZI BALLERINAS 27, BATON ROUGE SALIVA MEN 3

Rick, EXACTLY. Amen!

Expect adjustments by the Panthers, perhaps running the ball more, some trick plays.

Why do I have the feeling the Dolphins are NOT going to win this game kicking FGs??

superPHIN......exactly. One day they are going to realize Tannehill is the issue and not the line. This guys hands are too small to throw a deep ball. Just wait till we get into the cold weather :)

The biggest adjustment I see Carolina making at half is more pressure on Thill, watch for more blitz by them
if so its over

Well, we should find out if the coaching staff has learned anything since the Patriot game.

Yeah Philbins players are playing with passion today. The play calling on O at the end of the half after that int was awful man.

The FG at the end really told the story of our season.

Anyway we have the second half to play. The D line is playing great. Cam is on the ropes and the tackling looked great.

Thill could maybe look to run the ball a bit more the second half.

Wallace should be able to break open again, I'd take another shot deep to him to start the second half.

Coyle, Philbin, please don't sit back and play those Sh1tty zones the second half.

The Dolphins are lucky they caught Carolina napping.

Come on Miami !!!

That was a big first down.

Carroll VERY lucky there.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! Ginn drops it!!!

Good thing to see Hands of Stone Ginn haven't changed

Montreal. Because we have done the same all year long.

Coyle now getting back to business.

Wow Ginn does us a big favour.

That is why Newton is scary. The need to put a spy on him. He is going to run a lot this half.

Man refs owe us a big call in the second half.

Good spot ref...

there gonna start now

Was that a make up call there? horrible spot.

Come on defense.

No first down.

The refs have to get more of those right.

Don't jump off sides.

Carolina getting into a groove now...Watch...TD on the way.

Here we go...

Here come the Panthers. That FG at the end of the half gave them a lot of confidence.
