Default Heart Attack Dolphins

Man, I swear this team is trying to give me a heart attack. They let teams stick around until the very last second of the game.

I'm looking forward to them going on the road the last two games; they seem to play much better on the road than at home.

Dolphins 14
Niners 9

I'll take the win and the 'Fins are now 9-5!

10 turnovers in 14 games the FINs are on pace to set that record. They play opportunistic D and are tough in the red zone, the D hasnt given up a TD in 3 games. The O is inconsistent and special teams have been giving up some long returns. We are winning the close games that we lost in the recent past. The formula is tenuous and keeps you on the edge of your seat for the entire game so watching them can be stressful or exciting depending on your outlook. I'd like to get a big lead and coast for a game every now and then.

Love what Sparano, Ireland and Tuna have done with the turnaround from 1-15 last year. Anything can happen, keep your fingers crossed

They are polar opposites of what they were last year. If they can be more consistent on offense, and correct those special teams problems, they'll be a contender for sure.

The D puzzles me. They were on the field for SO LONG during that niner game, but never gave up a touchdown. I think the niners had the ball for something like 40 minutes during that game. It's a real testament to the bend but don't break defense.

The Dolphins are playing great defense though the offense concerns me. 14 points last week at home against the niners isn't gonna continue to cut it. Tough game this week at KC but I like the Fins to win the next 2 games for the division. Go dolphins!

It would be the biggest turnaround for any team in the history of the NFL. To go from 1-15 to outright division winner would be awesome.

I have my fingers crossed, but still won't be disappointed by the season if they don't make it because they've shown so much improvement since last year.

I'd be dissapponted if the Dolphins don't make the playoffs because we're the Dolphins and we've had a great tradition of going to the playoffs. The fans need it just as bad as the organization does to play in the playoffs. Besides, it would kill me to watch Denver/San Diego in the playoffs seeing how bad those 2 teams have played this year.

Truthfully, I'll be disappointed as well. I am just guarded against hoping too much..

Dolphins are victorious after another close win! Chad is playing lights out right now and unlike the Jets, the Dophins can win when they go out west. The storyline about Chad going back to NY with everything on the line could not be written any better! Go Dolphins! Put an end to the Jets choke job of a season!
