Dolphins Fall to Cowboys 30-13 To End Preseason Winless, Then Crash The Team Plane
- Given the abysmal state of the Dolphins WR corps, you have to wonder why guys like Rishard Matthews (who's had a nice camp and had 3 catches for 47 yards in this game) and B.J. Cunningham (2 catches for 23 yards) haven't been given a bigger opportunity against first team defenses just to get a look-see. Both those guys actually catch the ball and seem to make plays from time to time! But then you remember that our team is run by the incomparable genius of Jeff Ireland and all the wondrous mysteries of football contain magic which our feeble minds could never comprehend.
- Seriously, fuck Jeff Ireland and his acorns.
- Dan Carpenter (who kicked a booming 53-yarder) and Brandon Fields (SIX punts for a 40 yard average, including a 64-yarder) are both in mideason form, so that bodes well for our two perennial Pro Bowlers.
- Quick observation: That cute no-huddle, hurry-up offense bullshit from the first preseason game that would have yielded us being the fastest 3-and-out team in the history of the NFL has gone the way of the rotary phone. DONE-ZO with that shit.
As I mentioned earlier, final roster cuts down to the regular season 53 goes down on Friday by 9pm, so expect about 30 percent of the current projected 53 to be churned (or at the very least, they should be if the GM wasn't a smug-faced piece of shit). You don't need anyone to tell you that this is not a very good football team from a personnel or coaching perspective, so let's see what sort of precious 'acorns' good ole' Jeffy Ireland can uncover in the next few days before the NFL bends us over the couch for the next 16 games.
DOLPHINS FOOTBALL!!! WHEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
The Miami Dolphins open the 2012 regular season against the Houston Texans on September 9 at 1 p.m. EST. May God help us all. Not Jeff Ireland, though. Fuck that guy with a duck dick.
