Harbinger of things to come....

Darrius Rucker of Hootie and the Blowfish fame sang the national anthem.   What he didn't sing was "I'm such a baby, yeah, the Dolphins make me cry...." but just having him there was a form of Karma....
 
In addition, the honorary captains for the game were Kooch, Larry Little, and Dwight Stepehnson.   Kind of apropos that the offensive line played terribly given that.  Karma, yet again.
 
As for the o-line, it was a disappointing performance.  They had a lot of trouble blocking the Ravens, and yet on a few of the sacks and hits on Pennington, many of them were just standing around as the play ended.  You may have noticed that I was touting their performance a couple of weeks ago.  This week, not so much.  And that meant that the tight ends and backs were often left in to block leaving no one in the passing patterns.  So, that was at least part of the problem...
 
I look forward to the return of Donald Thomas and Justin Smiley. Jake Long is fine.  Vernon Carey will probably be given the chance to go in free agency; I can't see Miami giving him $10 mil the way he was getting pushed around.  Allernan and Ndukwe, who knows?  And Satele probably has played his last game at center; maybe he'll get a shot at guard.
