Not this one. Pass the Salt so I can eat my shoe. I just want to win. Fing O line Sucks like Paris Hilton in the dark though. Miami needs to really be scouring the waiver wires or looking at Trade possibilities for a team thats the opposite of us. Fat on offense and thin on defense. Murtha needs to be cut. Useless. Pouncy did not impress Tonight.

Sorry........to answer your question, I give the Best Dolphin performance tonight to punter Brandon Feilds. He averaged 59 yds per punt and got us out of some really bad posistions kicking from the end zone. That guy has some Foot!!

Mando even said that his 3 incompletes were all drops. I didn't
See the game, but if true that's pretty amazing esp considering nothing else working around him to speak of.

I'm not convinced but still optimistic.

I'm drawing a blank on a drop by Bess, which Armando said happened. Bush dropped a screen, right through his hands, with two blockers out in front and plenty of room to run. And Gates grew alligator arms on a pass down the right sideline when he saw the safety coming over the top. That one sure looked like a catchable ball, considering he got one hand on it, but didn't seem like he made much of an effort.

He played very, very well.

The thing that impressed me the most was his command of the offense. He was reading the defense, killing plays, calling audibles and he knew exactly where he wanted to go.

Very encouraging. I really hope this wasn't just a small flash of brilliance before he reverts back to checkdown Chad. We have the potential to make a great playoff run if he continues to play like this.

Consistency will be the key.

Henne surely looks like he has good command of the offense and has improved his accuracy.

The only knock I could see would be that it would have been nice if he could have thrown a couple of passes away to avoid the sack. Of course, that can also be a risky move.

The o-line still has a long way to go. And the penalties were costly.

I'm saying Chad Henne played well for Chad henne. He did NOTHING amazing. Marshall turned that repeception into a Touchdown. But Good on him! I'm pulling for him.

The Punts were almost game changing after our offense left us flat and stranded kicking from our end zone.

Vonte also dropped a tip-drill pick he should have had.

henne does look better, but he missed 2 wide open receivers in the endzone when he tucked it and ran.

i dont recall the Bess drop either.

Bess dropped the bubble screen. So, of the 3 incompletions, two should have been caught, and Gates got one hand on the 3rd one (and it appeared the defender was hold Gates' other hand).

Armando Salgeuro tried to pin that missing two guys in the endzone thing, too. I watched that play frame by frame several times. Number one, we kept in 6 guys to block. They rushed 4. So, they had 7 guys covering 4 receivers in a very small area of space. It was clear that Henne wanted to go to Bess, but there were 3 defenders around Bess, and the man that Incognito was blocking had his hands up and was blocking the throwing lane to Bess. Then, the protection on that side broke down, with both Murtha and Incognito losing their men. Hartline was in that same part of the field as Bess, now with 4 defenders. At the point Henne tucked it to run, Hartline had not broken to the back corner yet. And with that many defenders in the area, Henne is not going to know ahead of time that none of the 4 are going to go with Hartline. And at that point, it was just too late.

Damn right. It seems to be the whole Friggin' secondary.

You know what the coach of my high school in Oklahoma used to do is have guys close their eyes and throw the ball real fast and say "open." Sometimes he's throw it low, sometimes high, sometimes left and sometimes right but all the time hard.

That drill was more for the defensive secondary than the receivers (ends as they were called in those days).

It is almost inexcusable for a corner or safety to drop an easy interception.

Yeah, a defensive cornerback is not required to have the catching skills of a pro wide receiver but he is required to have better catching skills than a hockey player. eye rolling smileyeye rolling smileyeye rolling smileyeye rolling smiley
