Wondering how they’re taking last night’s loss down in Miami? Here’s a few articles from the media as Dolphins fans are reeling following last night’s embarrasing performance in front of a national audience.
Dave Hyde of the Sun-Sentinal has 10 Thoughts From Last Night, and tries to talk Dolphins fans down off the ledge after the beating they suffered against New England. Hyde points out that Cameron Wake was a force last night, sacking Tom Brady once as the Dolphins racked up three on him. Coming into last night Brady had been sacked just twice all year.
Last night’s home loss was the fourth consecutive one for the Dolphins, with the Sun-Sentinal asking fans “if they’re ready for some misery”. Dolphins coach Tony Sparano wasn’t pleased after the game, saying that they put themselves in bad spots, and that’s the reason for the loss.
“It’s a bad taste in your mouth,” Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said. “We put ourselves in this position, so we’re going to have to deal with it. We’re going to have to taste it now for the next couple weeks. That’s the way it goes.”
Sparano called the effort “embarrasing”, and that the fans deserved better.
The Palm Beach Post has an article on Patriots linebacker Rob Ninkovich, who two years ago wasn’t good enough to play for Bill Parcells and the Dolphins, but got even with his two interception performance.
It appears also that the Dolphins could be on their way to a QB controversy as Chris Mortenson of ESPN reports that Miami is concerned about Chad Henne turning into Chad Pennington, and may decide to turn to back-up Tyler Thigpen. ProFootballTalk.com also has more on this subject.
Armando Salguero of The Merced Sun Star writes that no one on Miami’s special teams unit should be safe after last night’s embarrassing performance.
And finally the Sun-Sentinal tries to find who’s accountable for last night’s loss…with the word embarrassing being thrown around yet again.
