    But they didn't beat us we lost the game. We had a chance to win the game late and we gave it away. I'd rather lose to the defending SB champs in their house then any other team. Long season ahead, we will be there in the end.

    Typical Fishy excuses!

    WE LOST THE GAME, THEY DIDNT WIN IT.
    Ummm ummm umm, the Steelers had Charlie Batch. So unfair!
    Daunte had mistaken the gold and black jerseys as the Fish jerseys!

    Get over it. You lost. Daunte choked, he threw two TERRIBLE INTs. Your secondary was exposed by Miller. Batch threw 3 TDs. Culpepper with 0. Brown with barely over 20 yds. But here come the excuses LMAO!

    you are right on. that probowl qb of yours gave that game away and the oline SUCKED. Honestly though, even if your team did show up, you still would have lost easily. Oh ya, Hines warde wasnt 100% and big ben didnt play.

    Just admit you were beaten by a better team today. By no means does this end your season, but the whole we lost they didnt win is just a stupid thing to say. Hell the pats are not gonna go undefeated and when a loss comes, i will gladly admit that the other team was better that day.

    You are an absolute dumb****. Both teams didnt play well, as can be expected, but lets not be in denial. Your team blew it, because of key plays by the steelers. they played like a champ would, and thats staing cool and rising to the occasion. they know how to win games. unfortunately, ur ****ty ass hyped up fins dont know how to finish it off. Thank DC for that, oh, and ur coach has a weak ass arm.

    Ike Taylor picked Culpepper on the play before the second Miami TD. I was amazed that the broadcasters didn't pick up on that and that Cowher didn't challenge.

    The replay clearly showed he bobbled it, yes, but then got control as he came down in the end zone and maintained control as he slid out the back of the end zone.

    Yup that was one lame pass, intended for Ike but then again Ike isnt a WR.

    The Steelers were awesome, I thought, considering the doubts that must have been in their minds going in without their starting QB with four days' notice.

    It sounds pretty arrogant to say Miami 'lost' the game rather than being beaten. Pittsburgh moved the ball well on the ground and in the air, and their defense did what it does.

    Some fish fan said in another thread 'without the Heath Miller play it could have been so different'. But it could also have been different without the Steelers fumbling on the goal-line, missing a field goal, and not getting a possible big PI call three plays before Miami scored their first points.

    its funny, feelthepain, you come in here and criticize our analysis of your team and then you come in here with this kind of crap?

    Your o-line sucks. Shelton and Carey are backup type lineman. You saw this tonight, right?
    Culpepper still has not proven he is a big game player. He stared down quite a few WR's and had happy feet all night.
    Your young secondary has yet to gel.

    Other than that, you have a good team.

    Amazing that any sensible fan of Miami would come on this board and be in high spirits after that game. Possibly got together with Northwestern fan? I've never been a Culpepper fan, and this game only confirms that opinion. He can put up all the stats he wants, but he is not clutch, not even close.

    Winners don't make excuses. Winners get it done. Looks like Culpepper and Feelthepain are NOT winners. Enjoy wallowing in your losing culture fins fan.

    I'll actually watch my unhyped team goto the playoffs this season and possibly reel in a 4th ring. Hope Culpepper enjoys watching us from his portable tv on the golf course in December. :)

    I can't agree. We lost, plain and simple. But this will be one of the best teams we face all year so, like you, I remain optimistic. Go Phins.

    Give the guy a break. At least he showed up. At a Pats board. After his dolphins lost on opening night. More than what a lot of us would do.

    BOTTOM LINE: Pitt at home is tough, as we well know, and NEITHER team particularly impressed. Pitt had a strong 2nd half, but they don't scare me.

    And the great Dolphins with "the best" head coach in the NFL get killed by "Batch's bunch :D ". Saban was so pathetic he failed to get the referees attention a weak toss with the red flag. You guys were definitley all talking about how you guys would kick the Steelers tails over at your fishy forum.

    The Pats would have dropped 41 on the Sqeelers last night. The fans would of been sitting on those stupid yellow towels by the 3rd quarter. The Steelers know the Pats are their daddy ;)

    What a sloppy game all around. Jason Taylor, Zach Thomas, and Troy Polamalu whiffing multiple times on tackles. WTF? I think both teams showed they're not very good in the secondary. Wes Welker was booty-ass nude in the secondary all day. Miami couldn't cover anybody either.

    The reason I'm down on Miami so much this year, though, is their O-line. I think it sucks donkey nuts. However, they performed fairly well yesterday in the first game of the season against a very difficult defense to play against. Culpepper looks like Culpepper. Looks great at times, but just refuses to take care of the football. Ronnie Brown looked very good. The Steelers O-line looks very good also. If you put Willie Parker in Denver, he'd probably lead the league in rushing. Such quick cuts upfield.

    I would be interested to see how the rest of the game played out had Batch not fumbled the ball on the 1 yard line.

    taking that a little out of context and i don't think that is a word for word quote. The point I believe I made before, though i was considerably drunk at the time, was that it wasn't a rout. It's true, if Batch doesn't fumble things are different. If the shaky hands to the face penalty isn't called, things are different. But we were in it until the end.

    More ignorant Dolphan crap. Most of them think they out-played the Steelers for the first 50 minutes, which is BS.

    This was a 45-3 game in which the Fins got every bounce. Their first 7 was set up by a terrible non-call on PI. Their go ahead TD was scored after the turnover machine threw it right to Ike Taylor in the endzone, only to have him drop it.

    Pitt drove all day on them and then cough it up on an unforced TO on the goalline that falls right into Allen's lap and then when Troy P makes a great play on the reverse Chris "The Invisible Man" Chambers has the ball bounce right back into his hands on his fumble.

    And Reed shanks a makeable FG.

    Take Wes Walker out of this game and it might have been 60-0 with the Steelers starting their back-up QB.

    When I saw this thread I had to look outside to make sure there was no snow on the ground. Usually these Dolphin excuses mean it's January.

    Culpepper reminded me of someone last night. He reminded me of that guy that was playing QB for the Vikings last year, the one who was embarrassingly bad before he ended up blowing out his knee and the great Brad Johnson came in to salvage their season. Who was that guy?

    Seriously, I don't see how the media and the Dolphins fans are getting so excited about this guy. I saw him play in person one time a few years back and that was enough to know he's not a good QB. He benefitted greatly from a high-powered offense, led by Randy Moss, in Minnesota. He stares down one receiver, ignoring wide open ones, forces balls into coverage, gets nervous and panics when he's pressured. He's simply not as good as some of his past numbers would indicate.

    As for the game, the Steelers played well, but their secondary wasn't all that great and they really don't have much of an offense.

    But more than anything, the thing that stood out most to me was that the officials look like they are picking up right where they left off last year. They were horrible! How many missed calls? It was pathetic. That side judge couldn't see Miller go out of bounds right in front of him? It couldn't have been more obvious. At least it wasn't completely one-sided bad officiating but it was still very bad.

    My takes on the game:

    * I thought the Dolphin's DTs played very well. I worry more about how they will hold up over the season than in any of the early games.

    * I understand that he is more built for a OLB position on the 3-4, but Taylor scared me a lot more when he was just lining up and rushing on every play.

    * Miller's play was ugly defense, but if I am a Fins fan, I'm much more concerned at how easily Ward kept getting open at the 1st down marker.

    * I actually was impressed with Miami's OL on pass protection. Pitt is a very good pass rushing team, and Miami held them at bay until the very end when passing was the only option. Run blocking, though? Blah.

    * I can't see Parker holding up over the course of the season if they are going to run him between the tackles 10-15 time a game. Hell, he didn't really hold up last year when he wasn't even coming close to that. People have been saying that they would like to see how Roth will do when winning or losing is on his shoulders. Well, I think we're all going to find out this year.

    * I didn't come away as impressed with Pitt's D as many others have. Their run D was fantastic, but I still believe that they can be passed on pretty easily. Frankly, Chambers should have had two TDs, one that went through his hands and another that Culpepper threw 4 yards over his head. Both times he was open. And Welker was left alone a lot, even when he was the #2 guy.

    * Ward is a great WR. Pitt is lucky to have him.

    * Welker is fantastic. He makes some cuts that are amazing. On the long punt return, he made a cut back up the middle whil he was running toward the left sideline that probably only a handful of returners in the league could have done. It isn't that he is fast, he has great feel and vision for space and can change direction as well as anyone I have ever seen. I wish NE had a guy like him.

    * Was anyone else surprised at the poor secondary tackling by both teams?

    * Miami fans are going to have to get used to mistakes like the one Culpepper made at the end to Porter. He is an amazing physical talent, but IMO he is not really a scholar of the game. A well timed "trick" play, like that one was, will be successful against him more often than you would typically see.

    * That said, Daunte gets a little bit of a bum rap for last season. It wasn't just Moss being gone that precipitated his bad season. Matt Birk, Minny's C, missed the season and the backup was terrible. Culpepper was given some of the worst pass protection that any QB saw last year. And because the team was falling behind early, he saw it often. He is probably not going to have a godawful series of games like then, but I do think that he will make 1-2 key mistakes every game. It is just up to the D to capitalize.

    I think that is all I have for now.

    You know who he reminded me of? Drew Bledsoe. Take away Moss, and the running ability with the knee (physical, mental, or coaching design, you could tell he didn't want to run), and that's what you have. A tall QB with a big arm who stares down his receivers.

    Brady would have won with that offense last night. Thats the difference, Culpepper doesn't have 'IT'.
