Things looked bleak halfway through the 3rd quarter, but the Dolphins started to execute better on defense to stall the Chiefs. Both Defenses played poorly for most of the game as the 10 degree record temperature for a Dolphins game seemed to open up many holes for the offenses. Miami's corners played soft and did not seal the corners to help shore up the Chiefs run game; therefore, LJ seemed to break many runs outside. Also, Thigpen was hitting his receivers often for 3 quarters, but Miami was doing a poor job of tackling them after the catch.
Chiefs QB Tyler Thigpen's Cinderella glass slipper fell off after the third quarter and ended up throwing 3 interceptions in the game. Whereas, Chad Pennington threw 3 touchdowns with only 1 interception.
Some of the guys in the chat room were about to commit suicide in the 2nd half, but I knew that if Pennington is our quarterback we always have a chance to win the game. It was another game where we kept the game close only to pull away in the 4th quarter.
The Dolphins now find themselves to be 10-5 ... still tied with the Patriots and the Jets (I am assuming the Jets will beat the Seahawks at the 4pm game). The only way the Patsies get into the playoffs is if the Fins and Jets play to a tie. Today the Patsies ran the score up on the Cardinals and I just find them to be classless. The Cardinals could have ran the score up on us the 2nd game of the season but they chose not to do so.
QB Chad Pennington - Mr. Reliable to the rescue.
WR Devone Bess - 6 catches for 57 yards. He was clutch in the 2nd half when we needed a first down.
RB Ricky Williams - 33 yards rushing and 50 yards receiving. Forget the fumble in the Chiefs red zone at the end of the game. It was not a fumble.
RB/ST Patrick Cobbs - awesome job whenever he touched the ball and he has to be our special teams MVP. He's made a real believer out of me.
TE Anthony Fasano - Great hands and toughness.
S Yeremiah Bell - Has the ability to make a game-saving deflection.
Be sure to come by tomorrow morning to read Rich's analysis on the game.
