It’s Game Day! It’s Fest Day! Dolphins vs Texans

header

(Header from CBS Sports)

Happy Fest Day!  It’s another Home opener of sorts, the first with Dan Campbell as head coach.  So many opportunities today.  We have the opportunity to finally beat the Texans.  We have the opportunity to get to 3-3 before a stretch of road games.  We have the opportunity to put together back to back wins for the first time in what seems like an eternity.   I’m not looking it up, but it seems like a long time.  And not to be ignored, it’s the opportunity to get a victory for those attending the Fest. 

Let’s Go Dolphins!

    They know it’s almost impossible for a bad team to get 41 without a lot of help but this game has really started to suck to watch lol

    that would be true if they were playing against a good team, but they are playing against the fins. this game isnt even close to over with yet

  4. New Age says:

    So…are all our backups playing now?

  5. Tim Knight says:

    These players easily take their foot off the pedal. Stop being cocky guys. Really?!!!

  6. D says:

    Taylor hasn’t looked good all day. Looked really bad there

    • Tim Knight says:

      He actually made quite a few plays in the 1st half. The entire team decided to call it a day in the 2md half. That has to stop.

  7. Mike E. says:

    Campbell learning what happens when you take your foot off the gas

  8. finfanrob says:

    and now it is a ball game. great thing this def is so fantastic

  9. ocalahowie says:

    We scored 41 in the 1st
    Who says a team cant score 42 in the 2nd
    This guy in the commercial is probably sitting in his car right now
    WE STINK!

    Lol, too true based off the past 15 years.

    yep, why i said about the first qtr. this team is so bad you can only take enjoyment a qtr at a time.

  11. finfanrob says:

    gotta be able to take about 6 mins off the clock here

  12. finfanrob says:

    nope instead idiot lazor stops the clock with an incomplete pass

  13. sb7mvp says:

    Gotta catch that

  14. Mike E. says:

    HOT DOG!

  15. ocalahowie says:

    Im still Mad!

  16. finfanrob says:

    that was a horrible called drive. they needed to just eat up the clock

  17. finfanrob says:

    campbell should have went for and onsides kick there. lmao

  18. Mike E. says:

    Gonna start calling #22 Toast Taylor

  19. finfanrob says:

    ne up 30-20 there is no way the nfl is going to let them use this year

  20. New Age says:

    Ugh.. Brady is going to eat up these guys always in the neutral zone.

  21. finfanrob says:

    New Age says:
    October 25, 2015 at 4:05 pm

    Ugh.. Brady is going to eat up these guys always in the neutral zone.

    brady is just going to kill the fins lb’s. he will have 450 yards and 4 or 5 tds

  22. herdfan says:

    This game is getting a little too close for my liking.

  23. ocalahowie says:

    Thursday N.E. Will teach us a thing or two about letting off the Gas
    I’ll go first
    NE 63- Us 3
    time to go to school!

  24. naplesfan2010 says:

    Campbell is learning how NOT to manage a big lead.

  25. New Age says:

    FFR,

    I agree. Our secondary and LBs are going to be roasted on Thursday. Im hoping for the best but this half has been an awful way to practice for Thursday.

  26. finfanrob says:

    how is kicking that ball with your back foot not offsides. if you plant your front foot in front of the football before it is kicked that is offsides

  27. Rhino says:

    let’s get another TD to finish are a high note

  28. finfanrob says:

    mark duper with a first down. oh wait, sorry i mean jennings

  29. jetsssuck says:

    Brady had 10 dropped passes today. Lafell 5 drops. They couldn’t save the bad game for us. 94 percent winner at home. Gonna be tough on 4 days between games and traveling

  30. Tim Knight says:

    We’re good. We’ll win this game whatever the score is and that’s all that matters. 3-3. 🙂

  31. finfanrob says:

    one thing is for sure, we all know how the texan fans feel. in the blodasphere some where out there in the land of texas some guy is arguing that the texans arent bad and they won the second half 26-3

  32. Rhino says:

    opposing coaches need an assistant to point out what Dan Campbell looks like for post game hand shakes. LOL

  33. sb7mvp says:

    We finally beat the Texans

  34. Try Pod says:

    Based on what I’m hearing, i guess that foster shredded a knee?

  35. Tim Knight says:

    The legend of Dan Campbell. LOL

  36. finfanrob says:

    October 25, 2015 at 4:22 pm

    Based on what I’m hearing, i guess that foster shredded a knee?

    Achilles

  37. Rhino says:

    I think any of us who have watched football for long enough knew how this second half would go. Good thing: playmakers got some rest for Thursday night and NO injuries

  38. Rhino says:

    “sb7mvp says:
    October 25, 2015 at 4:22 pm
    We finally beat the Texans”
    ———–
    we beat them like we were ‘chopping wood in the middle of the forest’ 🙂

  39. finfanrob says:

    Rhino says:
    October 25, 2015 at 4:24 pm

    I think any of us who have watched football for long enough knew how this second half would go.

    yep, how many times have the fins been on the opposite end of that and then it is said over and over that the only reason they came back is the other team played soft in the second half.

  40. finfanrob says:

    lol, the colts player just battered a loose ball and no penalty. guess you have to wear a fins uniform to be called for that

  41. naplesfan2010 says:

    Alright guys. A Big Victory today. We have great momentum going onto NE. Two straight blowouts for the Dolphins. Tannehill sets a new NFL record for most completions in a row. We are in the second wildcard position pending some other games.

  42. finfanrob says:

    Tim Knight says:
    October 25, 2015 at 4:25 pm

    Yep! It was a good plan but annoying at the same time. LOL

    i think it got a little closer then they thought.

    • Tim Knight says:

      The players let down with a big lead which will be a discussion for sure. But they also played backups much of the 2nd half which may resonate down the road. We have to play the Pats in NE on Thursday so giving starters rest was important. We’ll see.

      We turned 1-3 into 3-3 and we’re right back in it.
      Pats 6-0 (of course they are)
      NYJ 4-2 (they’re a tough team)
      Phins 3-3 (waking the sleeping giant)
      Bills 3-4 (not as good as advertised – gee what a surprise lol)

  43. jetsssuck says:

    pats have 4 OL players playing new positions with 3 rookies

  44. Rhino says:

    we win… jets, steelers, bills lose. Perfect Sunday. We just regained control of our season.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      excuse me we are a half game OUT of the second wildcard spot behind Pittsburgh or the jests. pending if the LA Raiders lose to the LA Chargers.

  45. ocalahowie says:

    Im not that happy
    Now we go to NE in 3 days on a flat tire.
    Anyone recall that game that NE was killing us so Cheat sits Brady and we finally score.
    Bammm Brady is right back in after that.
    NEVER LET UP!
    I was going to go with us if we beat Texas today but what I saw in the 2nd half
    I have us for a loss this week and now I am sticking with it.
    Patriots 62
    Dolphins 3

  46. finfanrob says:

    Tim Knight says:
    October 25, 2015 at 4:37 pm

    The players let down with a big lead which will be a discussion for sure.

    i hope not. it is a useless discussion. you have no idea if they let down or just started playing it to not give up big plays.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Nah, all phases started to say whatever. A missed extra point followed by poor offense and defense. D. Williams with an opportunity to get a 1st down but fumbling might have given way to Jonas Gray from here on out. Miller is a stud.

  47. finfanrob says:

    Rhino says:
    October 25, 2015 at 4:33 pm

    we win… jets, steelers, bills lose. Perfect Sunday. We just regained control of our season.

    i dont know about that. still way to early and still a lot of problems with this team. but i will say, at least the season is interesting for another week.

  48. finfanrob says:

    Tim Knight says:
    October 25, 2015 at 4:39 pm

    Boo!!!! What kind of shit is that?

    you know what kind. why ask him to explain it? go with it howie, dont explain just go with it

  49. finfanrob says:

    Tim Knight says:
    October 25, 2015 at 4:46 pm

    Nah, all phases started to say whatever.

    oh sorry, i didnt see you in the locker room or sidelines. my bad, i had no idea you were in the know and knew exactly what was going on. i was just stating my opinion from my sofa.

  50. Mike E. says:

    After further review, Tim is right. Campbell and Co. rested the guys we need to be rested for Thursday night against NE. It was the right thing to do. Hopefully we see the benefits of it Thursday night.

  51. finfanrob says:

    Rhino says:
    October 25, 2015 at 4:33 pm

    we win… jets, steelers, bills lose. Perfect Sunday.

    you forgot to say that the bucs lost and lost by giving up a huge come back that always makes for a good sunday

  52. naplesfan2010 says:

    Howie:
    I say we get 4 FGs in NE and 2 TDs to 2 FGs and 2 TDs.
    26-20MIA

    After further review, Tim is right. Campbell and Co. rested the guys we need to be rested for Thursday night against NE. It was the right thing to do. Hopefully we see the benefits of it Thursday night.

    who? the only one not in during the second half was miller

    • Tim Knight says:

      On defense we played backups almost the entire 2nd half. On offense you saw Williams/Gray and Parker. They definitely didn’t want to push it too much with the toughest road trip you can imagine.

      At NE, BUF and PHI in a row. This is the season. 2-1 is what we must do.
      Go Phins!!!

  54. Rhino says:

    ffr, “control our destiny” 😉 doesn’t mean we will fulfill it, but at least we don’t have to rely on others… the question is: can we go 6-3 the rest of the way? If so, we are in the playoff picture.

  55. Ken says:

    I may never watch another game if this is how we play when I don’t watch

  56. finfanrob says:

    Rhino says:
    October 25, 2015 at 4:57 pm

    ffr, “control our destiny” 😉 doesn’t mean we will fulfill it

    aahhh, yeah, why i said at least it makes the next game interesting.

  57. finfanrob says:

    Tim Knight says:
    October 25, 2015 at 5:01 pm

    On defense we played backups almost the entire 2nd half.

    oh ok, my bad, i didnt know suh, wake and vernon were back ups. damn they paid that guy suh a lot of money to be a back up.

    Darkwa tearing it up in the giants game

    October 25, 2015 at 5:02 pm

    I may never watch another game if this is how we play when I don’t watch

    not only that, you have to spend it in an airport or airplane

  60. D says:

    Miller was the only one that sat out a significant part of the second half. Some got rotated out a little more frequently but most the starters stayed in second half

  61. naplesfan2010 says:

    Remember I said I wanted us to keep Orleans Darkwa instead of Damien Williams and especially instead of Daniel Thomas and LaMichael James.

  62. ocalahowie says:

    FFR thats right
    just go with it, all one needs to do is look at Boulders season standing and I am spot on 3-3

  63. steveccnv says:

    This game went perfectly. The score at the end doesn’t matter, what does matter is we won and we didn’t have to play for 4 qtrs. to do it. With a game coming up in a few days this easy one is going to go a long way towards helping the starters on Thursday. It doesn’t mean we’re going to win, it just means it’s nice to not exude too much energy.

    When Buff. kicked our ass in game 3 they put out too much effort to embarrass us, which they did, but they’ve lost 3 of 4 since, so I think its better to just win, than humiliate.

  64. finfanrob says:

    D says:
    October 25, 2015 at 5:06 pm

    Miller was the only one that sat out a significant part of the second half. Some got rotated out a little more frequently but most the starters stayed in second half

    thats what i saw too. it wasnt till that last texan drive that they took out the starting d line.

  65. CavalierKong says:

    That was glorious

  66. finfanrob says:

    ‘so I think its better to just win, than humiliate.’

    lol, steve. we are all dolphin fans we know humiliation. you bet your ass it is nice just to win

  67. ocalahowie says:

    CCNV
    I like your take on that.
    Perhaps I will look at things differently in the morning.
    GO PHINS!!!

    • steveccnv says:

      I didn’t watch the 2nd half, I saw the score 40-6 with 7 minutes or so left in the 3rd, the next time I checked I thought I don’t care, if it’s 41-21 just don’t exude too much energy.

  68. finfanrob says:

    CavalierKong says:
    October 25, 2015 at 5:11 pm

    That was glorious

    dont you mean it was kongalicious like

  69. Tim Knight says:

    FFR, if you didn’t see the personnel change in the 2nd half, I can’t help you. I didn’t say no starters played but geez dude pay attention. LOL

  70. CavalierKong says:

    It’s so great this was a fest game. All the fest members that put all the effort, money, and travel arrangements (for some) to get to this game deserved to enjoy some kick-ass Miami domination.

    • Mike E. says:

      Yeah man, They got a special treat with that beat down today. I’m sure the mood was better than usual leaving the stadium. The curse is over. lol

  71. finfanrob says:

    October 25, 2015 at 5:14 pm

    yep, my bad. i mean i cant see what you see. what can i say, i just dont know everything like you do.

  72. CavalierKong says:

    Catch you guys sometime during the week. Enjoy the rest of the day. Thursday is now a very meaningful game!

    Go Fins!!

    well good and bad, cause now they have to go to every home game the rest of the year too. they cant jinx by not going

  74. finfanrob says:

    Tim Knight says:
    October 25, 2015 at 5:16 pm

    It’s not unlike the Mets getting their pitching rotation in order. LOL

    who are the mets? arent they a double a baseball team that plays some where up in NY?

  75. New Age says:

    The Pats had a really tough game followed by a short week. Hopefully that helps us. On the other end, we played that 5 yard line WR screen very poorly and NE uses that about 30 times a game. Our secondary and LB unit are bad so I just hope we pull something out of our…stuff to pull it out.

    In the end, we won a not close game and got the winless streak off our backs. Good game guys!!

    • Mike E. says:

      How the Jets left Gronkowski, of all people, uncovered on the TD near the end is puzzling. He’s the one guy you have to not one guy on, but likely TWO!

      • Tim Knight says:

        It’s the same thing as back in the day with Jerry Rice. Great players make plays regardless. Todd Gurley is reforming the Rams. It’s about talent. Look at Landry today. None of that was coaching. Pure effort and talent.

  76. finfanrob says:

    why do the cowputz get to have suck and gaikman announce every one of their games. it is horrible the homos they are for the cows

  77. finfanrob says:

    Tim Knight says:
    October 25, 2015 at 5:23 pm

    Oy!

    see, you know so much and are so smart you speak two languages

  78. finfanrob says:

    ‘Todd Gurley is reforming the Rams.’

    i heard today the rams were one of the teams considered to move to los angles. wtf just when i start to remember they are the st louis rams now they are going to move back to LA. will the make up their damn minds

  79. finfanrob says:

    once again the officials putting themselves in the middle of the game with a horrible late hit call against the giants.

  80. Tim Knight says:

    I think we all agree the officials are ruining the game with incessant calls. That needs to stop.

  81. ocalahowie says:

    First Update
    DOLPHINS-PATRIOTS
    Naples 26-20MIA
    Howie 31-30 MIA
    HELL YEAH!!!

  82. Ken says:

    Congrats to Tannehill NFL record 25 straight completions

  83. bookman11 says:

    Ok this was Dan’s second game…a blow out…which is not normal…plus a Thursday night game coming up. I agree with Tim. Guys were sit to prepare for NE.

    One more thing….Fins are practicing at night onMonday…..good idea to rest guys.

  84. New Age says:

    Carr looks really good for the Raidas. Glad to see them winning some games again.

  85. New Age says:

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000565338/article/dolphins-embarrass-texans-in-dominant-performance

    This is hilarious commentary. One guy was trying to push the positives for the Texans so hard and the other guy just kept on piling our win on. Feels good.

  86. BoulderPhinfan says:

    Wow what a game. Cograts to Coach dan and the whole team. What a performance. That was an ass whooping. Great game for the Fest.

    Can’t wait till thursday!! Go Phins.

  87. ocalahowie says:

    Glad to see SD losing too.
    How about that game last week
    500+ passing and still cant break 21pts
    And that very last pass. just the play before he had Woodhead wide open in that same spot
    That dude from the Packers wasnt going to let that happen again
    Game Over

  88. Tim Knight says:

    Steve, Rex wants to humiliate his opponents but he still can’t win games. It’s not about that but to win games. He is too much about look at me. So glad he’s not our HC.

  89. finfanrob says:

    the redzone going off about keenan allen setting the nfl record for receptions thru 7 games. can they find more useless stats to talk about. i mean i dont even think tanny’s straight completion record is all that. it is like they find anything now a days to make a stat about.

    did you guys know that suh was the first player in nfl history to get two sacks on back to back plays with only 3 letters in his last name separated by the letter u and on a sunday between the hours of 1 and 4 pm with the weather under 127 degrees

    how is that news? everyone new that was happening today

  91. ocalahowie says:

    Love that stat FFR
    Suh will go down in history!
    As for Tanny, Nice game but notice how nobody around here even mentioned that record
    Not even when Sims couldnt make that 19-19 last grab of the day.
    FUCK THE STATS!

    I’m looking forward to hearing about the fest. That had to be so much fun for all of them today!

    Go Dolphins!

    As expected, we had a kick ass time.

    And today’s Fest game ball goes to Brian NY — what an awesome dude.

    And today’s Fest game ball goes to Brian NY — what an awesome dude.

    what the hell. he just gets a game ball? dont we at least the hear his stats for the fest and how he earned a game ball?

    • stangerx says:

      No stats kept…….just a guy you’d like to be the godfather of your children. Other’s there might give the pigskin of the day to someone else. Key thing is there is nothing like the Fest.

  96. finfanrob says:

    carolina…..the team that asked the fins to back down in practice but are killing it now.

    yeah you go ahead and believe everything you read.

  97. finfanrob says:

    ‘Key thing is there is nothing like the Fest.’

    sounds like some one needs a visit to my sofa.

  98. Phindog says:

    Stanger… Glad you guys had a blast.. Gotta ask.. How was the smoked prime rib ? And I agree… Brian is one cool dude.

    • stangerx says:

      Smoked prime rib was exceptional. Not sure if this will make sense, but it was slow cool smoked. So the smoked flavor didn’t you hit you in the face, but it was on both the outside and inside of the meat through and through. Warren can cook.

  99. finfanrob says:

    did stanger just say i likes his meat slowly so it doesnt hit him in the face to hard.

    • stangerx says:

      You had to work to get that one in ffr but cool…..absolutely what I meant.
      Still riding the Fest high. We have some great people on this board.

  100. finfanrob says:

    lol stanger that you think i had to work to turn the most innocent of comments into something perverted

    • stangerx says:

      Perhaps saying you had to really twist that one around to your purpose would have been a better way to put it…….assuming you want some train of logic on the thing.

  101. Phindog says:

    Stanger,
    Warren is an outstanding chef.. Please don’t piss him off before the next fest.

  102. Phindog says:

    Speaking of the next fest.. Who’s going to the west fest in San Diego ?

  103. finfanrob says:

    lol and in 2015 ted ginn is STILL running out of bounds to not get hit.

  104. Ken says:

    I am lmao watching tonight’s game. Ted Gin with a great run on end around but at end of run as a tackler closes in he goes out of bounds. I just ask what would Jarvis Landry do?

  105. finfanrob says:

    Try Pod says:
    October 25, 2015 at 9:48 pm

    Jarvis would have tried to grab as many yards as he could, defenders be damned.

    to his credit, rodney ‘i hate everyone but NE players’ harrison said he loved the guy and the passion he plays with. i think he called him the best player no one has heard about. which is funny cause everyone knows about him but the asswipe acts like cause he doesnt play for the cheats no one knows about him.

  106. The Flying Pig says:

  107. The Flying Pig says:

    Landry doesn’t just fight for every yard
    He fights
    It’s awesome to watch

    Not sure how that long TD run looks on TV
    But in the stands, I just thought step out of bounds and that it’s
    Them I thought okay walk the sideline
    Next thing I know he is crossing the field and it’s a TD run

    Even good physical receivers in this league don’t make that play
    There was nothing there

    He just stayed up long enough to open up the field

  108. The Flying Pig says:

    Piggy’s MVPs

    Landry
    Jones

    Agree or not?

    GOT HOME FROM THE FEST a little while ago. IT WAS AWESOME!! –Young Stanger is the host supreme, and theee expert at getting decent tix at an affordable price. The D & B’s event was great, and the pregame, featuring Warren’s “ULTRA SPREAD of FOOD” was fit for kings and queens!! MANITOBA got some neat pix which, I guess, we’l see later. I BROUGHT IN PIX from Fest ONE four years ago! –And, best of all, the FINS LOOKED AMAZING!!!!!!!!
    ———
    BRIAN FROM NY sure deserved the game ball for all his help!–BRIAN YOU’re a true friend!!

    GUESS ALL OF YOU SAW TANNy’s 25 straight completions broke an all-time NFL record!!–EVEN PIGGY, reportedly, was impressed by Tannehill’s performance!! DID YOU GUYZ KNOW that Lamar Miller is the first player in NFL history to run for an 85 yard touchdown AND catch a 50 yard+ touchdown pass IN THE SAME QUARTER (per ESPN)?!!? – – WOW!! WE SURE CRUSHED THAT TEXANS” JINX, DIDN’T WE??
    ——-
    SPEAKING of old jinxes, I think it was O ROB who said the Fest was a jinx for the Dolphins. WELL, I did some research. IN the Fests that O ROB has NOT attended, Miami is 2 wins and 1 loss. (WIN vs. Redskins in year one; loss to Tennessee in year two, WIN vs. Texans today). –But in the only Fest ROB has attended (last year, year #3), MIAMI LOST to Green Bay. So it appears that ROB IS THE TRUE JINX, RIGHT???????

    GDP and his lady friend were a nice addition this year. RICK, we SURE hope both of you can make it next year, too!
    ——
    THAT touchdown by LANDRY was absolutely epic! One of the greatest plays in DOLPHINS History!!! AND I BELIEVE 41 POINTS IN THE FIRST HALF IS AN ALL-TIME DOLPHINS’ RECORD!!! – – wow, what an amazing day!!!–Talk to all of you tomorrow!!–Gotta walk the Greyhound and get my ugly rest!!

      NO FFR. –I haven’t had much time to backtrack. tonight. But, since U wrote it, I’ll take a look at it tomorrow. Keep the good news coming. I’m out for tonight.

    What a great game yesterday! It was absolutely without question the best game day experience I have ever had at the stadium. At one point during the second quarter I literally had tears running down my face. Never have I seen such a complete dominance in a half. I was laughing hysterically..ha ha ha ha ha woooohoooo ha ha ha! What a great group of guys we’ve got on this blog. Fantastic experienc!

    Those bastards sucked me back in. I’M BACK! Before yesterday’s game I would have sworn that it wasn’t possible. I was so down on this team. Watching that game in person in the stands feeling the energy was a perfect storm for me. It was cathartic. I am not kidding about crying in 2nd quarter. WOW what a game.

    Now go and kick the shit out of the Patriots this Thursday! GO DOLPHINS!

    HOWIE 34-28 MIA

    Herm Edwards on Philbin vs Campbell: “some lead with their seat, some with their feet”

    Philbin from his office chair… Campbell in the locker room.

    O’Howie,
    I am not going to allow myself to be manipulated by recent events, though I will absorb the info and allow it an audience:
    31 – 27 N- ot covering E- dleman W- ell

    Campbell likes physical practices. On short week… when does that happen?

    Not to question your emotional experience, but from the looks of it on TV, I think that was rain pouring on you. 😉

  119. sb7mvp says:

    Tears of bittersweet rain. Phil Collins would be proud.

    Nobody knows what to say today. LOL

    The rain was a bonus. LOL It hid the fact that I was crying. (while laughing hysterically) and it cooled things down in the stands. We were all dry by the end of the game. WOW what a great experience.

    It was a very long GREAT day. Thanx to all who made it happen. “Its a New Dan” and it also appears The Force has Awoken

  123. Tim Knight says:

    I’m glad you festers got a chance to see a game like that where not only did we end the losing streak to HOU but we destroyed them.

    • stangerx says:

      Great win for the team, but I truthfully would have like it is they traded scores for a while to keep it interesting.

  124. stangerx says:

    Tanny had a 158.3 passer rating yesterday……if that’s not as high as it gets it’s darn close.

  125. stangerx says:

    MIller had 236 total yards in the game…….and he was pulled at half.

    • Rockphin says:

      and he was pulled at half……..

      Let that settle in a little bit…..he had 175 yards rushing in the first half! Is that the most running yards by a Miami Running back in one half of play in history? If not it has to be close.

      Someone posted yesterday that he thought Landry & Jones were the MVP’s of the game. HOW can you leave out a performance like that? Miller is in the running for MVP of that game if not the hands down winner.

      • stangerx says:

        Might been other great first halfs, but have to think if you double that you have the NFL record in both rushing and total yards.

  126. BoulderPhinfan says:

    What a great monday. Amazing game. The phins are playing lights out.

    Thursday will be the real barometer for this team. Beat the pats!!

    • stangerx says:

      It will be a measure, but even loss doesn’t mean playoffs aren’t possible. Some of the games we thought would be tough are no longer looking that way, like the Ravens and the Colts.

      • BoulderPhinfan says:

        I agree. a loss won’t be the end of the world but the division is out. We won’t win the division. With a win we still have a chance at the division.

  127. Rockphin says:

    Dan Campbell after yesterday’s win:

    “That’s us,” said Campbell. “That’s not some fluke. That’s who we are.”

    Does anyone have any Kookaid? I think I might start drinking again.

  128. Tim Knight says:

    This game was perfect on a short week where we could rest some starters in the 2nd half. It was good to get some backups playing time as well.

    • stangerx says:

      Yep great game to rest/protect those who need it.

      Arian Foster tore his achilles in the 4th Q and is out for the season……why was he playing in the 4th Q?

    • BoulderPhinfan says:

      did albert play the 2nd half? I think both miller and albert sat the entire 2nd half.

  129. BoulderPhinfan says:

    I have a feeling the raiders will beat the jets this weekend. The raiders will be one of the teams vying for a wildcard. They’re playing well right now.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Yeah the Raiders are on the rise. The Jags are going to be good in a few years too. They have a lot of young talent.

  130. BoulderPhinfan says:

    Wow. I hope these guys can keep it up

    ” How about this stat line for Ndamukong Suh: Two sacks, six tackles, three tackles for loss. Suh has played at an All Pro level the past two weeks. “

  131. Tim Knight says:

    Stanger, Foster tore his Achilles with no contact which tells you it was going to go anyway. His career is probably done. He’s had a lot of wear and tear over 7 years and he’s had a lot of injuries.

    • stangerx says:

      Maybe it would have happened anyhow, but they didn’t know that. And he could have reinjured his knee via contact too. Not like they had a chance of winning.

    Should be a new blog in a few minutes

  133. Tim Knight says:

    New blog is up.
