Fin Fan on the Left Coast

Pretenders, not contenders. We find "hidden gems" under rocks where they belong, while the rival Jets and Patriots keep signing big-name talent. This game shows how far the Fins are behind the AFC from playing with the big dogs. Flacco has so many weapons compared to Henne, and Henne's OC is a joke. Then there is a defense with fumble fingers and missed opportunities galore to change the course of a game. This season is a wash. Even Oakland is playing better. At least with Sunday Ticket, I can turn to games that are more exciting and watch teams that show DESIRE (hear me, Brandon Marshall?).
You beat reporters fanned the flames for two weeks, and now you want to absolve yourself of any blame for the blowback. Priceless!

I am currently a resident of San Diego. I have been a Dolphins fan from the beginning, even though I was a kid in Ohio at the time. Then I lived in Fort Lauderdale for a dozen years and held season tickets at the Orange Bowl and what was then Joe Robbie Stadium. I attended two Super Bowls in the 1980s in California, both losses by the Dolphins. So, hell yes, I would try to attend any Super Bowl that the Fins make!

Well, so far it is Henne, the wildcat and the Dolphins who are laughing at the clown. Thanks for the bulletin board item, Mr. Pace. See you in a couple of weeks in Joisey.

Stunning disrespect by Ryan and the Jets! This should refuel the rivalry like nothing else could. The arrogance is stunning. You lost buddy boy. Two in a row. Try being humble and give respect to the team that vanquished your team. Take away two special team tricks and a handful of phantom calls against the Fins defense, and this game would not have been even close. Gawd, I loathe Ryan and the Jets.

So happy the Fins WHIPPED the pink pants off the Bills!

Exactly what I saw, trying to get cute with the offense killed all momentum and led to a fatal turnover that ended any chance of a comeback. When you have two top backs and a dandy third-stringer in Cobbs, why are you not using them? Running backs need touches to be effective, and they did not get enough touches against Atlanta. Speaking of Cobbs, why is he not running back kickoffs and being used like Sproels with the Chargers? I think he has such a tremendous upside if only they design plays for him.

Horrendous performance by o-line. Didn't give Penny time, so there was no chance to test the inexperienced Falcons secondary. Inserting White into the game also was a joke. Just as Penny seemed to get into rhythm, out trots the "experiment" and he is wildly overthrowing Ginn when just about anybody's grandmother could have tossed a TD in that situation. Late in the game, why didn't Henne get the call when the game was out of reach? D-line did a great job containing the running game, but the d couldn't stop Ryan's passing game when needed. Need I say how dominating Tony the Tiger was?

A very touching tribute to your Mom. RIP. And Armando, hang in there, man. You were blessed to have your mother around all these years. Always, always remember the good times.

3 games in 10 days Posted by: y-not | August 28, 2009 at 09:17 AM y-not, this is the primary reason for the sloppy game last night, which was so painful to watch as a fan hoping to see something more than sleepwalking. The slick field, lightning delay and lack of game planning contributed as well. for the bucs, this was their super bowl, because they are not playoff material. sorry, Tampa Bay fans, because i root for you to do well except against Miami. the criticism of Long is so off-base that it is laughable. he is one of the best as his position, and he is only going to get better with experience. Saint Penny was underthrowing, overthrowing and missing right and left. Why he doesn't look at Ginn is a great mystery. Hartline is the most pleasant surprise of camp. The guy makes plays. Period. He runs good routes, which is why he draws penalties and extra attention from the defense. I agree with Mando. He is starting opposite Ginn. Cammy made a great catch, and a lot of yards after catch, but his lack of speed allowed the defenders to catch him. Bess is not a fast as many suspect. His returns, especially when he tries to spin to the outside, gets him nowhere. If he does not head straight up the field, he is not going to gain yardage. Vontae Davis seems to be playing smarter each game. Smith didn't flash in this game. Do we have any safeties that can make any plays? They are always a step too late to break up a pass. Henne looked awful. Let's pray this was not an omen about his future.

What this says to me is that the Fins finally have good depth at most positions, a luxury we haven't had in years. More power to Ireland if he can trade to fill holes or rack up more draft picks for border-line players.
