Tick Tock Tick Tock

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water....

Just when we thought we could snatch victory from sure defeat....

Just when we fantasized about greatest comebacks in somebody's history....

Reality hit.

With us down by 7 with 6 minutes to play the Patriots rallied behind their 3rd string QB and pounded the ball off their left side for 53 yards in route to eating 5 precious minutes off the clock.

Tannehill tried to drive us down the field but despite the Pats missed FG with 1:04 left, the writing was on the wall.

Another poor performance in Foxboro.  Another loss.

But at least this time, we never thought we had a chance behind by 28 points.

Lets give the Pats some credit. They did what they had to do to win the game.

And we knew it was coming.

Pound, pound, pound.

Tick, tock, tick, tock.

Cleveland comes to town on Sunday. The improved stadium will be revealed in all its glory.

And after 2 straight road losses, the Dolphins' 2016 season is suddenly on the clock.

Phins up!!!

It was so frustrating watching Blount run 9 hole to close us out. Someone make a friggin play! I live in NE and all day all I heard on the radio was how shaky their makeshift line is. We made them look all world. Of course I'd doesn't help when our D plays 95% of the first half. A couple more thoughts on today - Parker will be great if he can consistently practice and play. Foster is junk. He looks slow, can't run between the tackles, is hurt once again. Cut his ass. Insert Drake and find a change of pace back between Ajayi, Pead, or Williams. We need a hammer like Blount.

not sure what the bigger issue was, pass defense or run defense, i say drake and pead should be our back field i agree foster is a joke now and ajayii is not a starter in this league

This season is a loss already guys. Sorry but the "comeback" don't impress me. We should have won this game. Period. I'm tired of these bullshit excuses. I have heard them all and don't care what they are anymore. Our defense can't make a stop when it counts and our offense goes 3 and out far too often. Build some more this offseason and draft and hopefully we get our shit together next season.

Same old same old same old shit.

I dissagree Mr Chavez. This season is not over. A home opener against Cleveland is just what the Dr ordered. I am adamant we start the game with the same pace we played in the second half. We seem to thrive when we need points in a hurry. Why wait for that kind of game plane. Open with it!

The same thing happened at Seattle! Finished strong! How did that's plan work out this week?

Meanwhile keeping Seattle to 12 pts doesn't look so impressive anymore. They have 3 pts in the third against a defense that looked like shit against SF!

avatar

You guys make have a point

avatar

This team is not impressive!!! No Brady. No Garropolo for more than a half. No Gronk. No Ninkovoch. No Solder. No Vollmer. No Hightower and we lose!! PATHETIC!!! Patriots had 2 rookie guards and A bum for a center and they ran all over our so called great D Line! What a joke!!!! Hahahahahahahahahaha

avatar

Let's look at this reasonably. We lost at Seattle and at NE.

We better beat the Browns.

avatar

Right. When will we get off this merry-go-round

avatar

Who knows who is strong or weak after 2 games

avatar

I think they were spent with Phillips and Williams out. We had no depth.

avatar

I know Miami is weak Carl!!!!!

avatar

Don't tell Miami that Carl! They will use it as another excuse! And I for one am tired of them!!!...

One last post from me. I'm getting more and more frustrated as the night goes on (enter vodka). Can we please see a package with Grant in it. All I heard was how quick and fast this kid is. Put his ass in and throw him a bubble screen or a reverse or something!

Sometime in the 2nd qtr I felt like I was sitting in my dentist chair getting a tooth pulled without novacane.the dee made only 1 big play all day by knocking garo out .it would have been a total blowout instead of a game that looked close to anyone that didn't watch it by the final score.

Can't argue that

avatar

crazy thing is, still can't run the ball, stop the run, still have below avg secondary. still start slow. joe philbin leaving a hell of a stain

That's a reality Lawrence. The offense didn't help at all in the 1st half

avatar

I told you guys foster was a mistake. He is a fragile cancer with limited upside. The defense dug us a big hole. I think we can salvage the season. I'm not giving up yet.
