Vernon getting beaten twice in one play by Kroy Biermann, who the Dolphins are making look like Bruce Smith.

Barring some wackiness, this will go down as one of the worst opening games in Dolphins history. Right there with 1988 (Chicago, 34-7 loss) and 1986 (San Diego, at the end of the Fouts-Super Chargers era, puts up 50 on the Aqua)

Atlanta fans booing Jason Elam...before he put the 50-yarder through.

Ronnie Brown is peeved. He went in motion and was wide open on the right side if Pennington had looked that way on third down. After the play, he snatched his chin strap off, then appeared to exchange snappy comments with an assistant...looks like the Kiss Cam busted two somebodies who weren't supposed to be at the Georgia Dome together.

Elam and the occasional Ryan overthrow keeping this from being a giggle-worthy blowout...

Three turnovers this season in three quarters. 13 turnovers last season in 64 quarters.

Hmmmm...think Mike Peterson lookead at a few films this week? As hard as Pennington stared down Fasano before making that throw.

Wonder if the coaches will just adjust to the fact that Merling's a Sunday kind of guy...

Jake Long gets beaten for a sack by Cory Bierman, who has now had the first multi-sack game of his career.

Ricky tripped and fell coming out of the backfield, so Chad lost his safety valve and had to take the sack.

OK, when the QB has to tell the tailback and the fullback where to line up on third and one, it's a hint and a half that a play action pass is coming. And, maybe I'm wrong, but shouldn't that have been a bit of a face guard on Sean Smith?

OK, with 25 seconds left, you're going to either do something with the ball or you take a knee. Why run a play that'll gain maybe a first down at best and risk getting people hurt?

Ronnie was down for a second after that play, then walked off with a slight limp. He's sitting on the bench with his left leg extended, but nobody's working on him, so he looks OK...Atlanta would've had the ball at the 26, but for The Holy Roller Rule, that says fumbles can be advanced only by the fumbler in the last two minutes of a half...two turnovers already today after an NFL record low last season. See why it's tough to have a game-plan based on playing mistake free football? And that wasn't Fasano's fault. He got New Testament baptized with that hit.

Had they not blown the call, it could've been a touchdown, like the Antonio Freeman play in overtime against the Vikings years ago on Monday Night Football. Atlanta never bothered to touch Camarillo.

A play from Tebow's freshman year. Play action anticipating a quarterback run and drop back for the throw. And White overthrows the receiver. Shocking. Positively shocking. That was pass interference on the defensive back covering Camarillo. It shows up best on the angle shown on the JumboTron here.

Just as I said to Darlington the pass protection looked aiiight today -- the fumble was Chad's fault, clearly -- Abraham pushed Jake Long halfway to China to nail Chad. You could almost hear him saying, "Speed rusher, huh?"

Nice block by Brown to spring Ricky, who gets to top speed much faster.

Post-penalty, Crowder talked major junk to ATL coaches and bench...

Did Matt Ryan borrow Chad Pennington's arm for the quarter?

Nice rush by Merling keeps Ryan from stepping into the throw for Gonzalez...and Sean Smith showing why you like corners with 757 wingspans. Davis, Allen or most corners might not make that play.

Does Roddy White have a No Dive clause in his contract? Lousy pass by Ryan that should've torched Sean Smith, but sheesh...and the kind of pointless, dumb penalty committed by Will Allen you expect to see out of one of the rooks.

Ah, Atlanta pulls out its Wildcat, with Norwood. Fad indeed, Mr. Ryan...

Matt Ryan was the third to last Falcon introduced. Roddy White, then closed with Michael Turner... Coin Toss. Dolphins called heads. Came up tails. Falcons took the ball.

And the active quarterbacks don't have to be injured for the third quarterback to be used.
