    whose 94 on our team? Cause whoever it was, i really feel a more impressive athlete coulda made that play. Im not blaming him, mainly cause its pointless, but also cause really the game was lost in the secondary.

    As soon as I saw our defense spread out like that I just lowered my head and muttered 'touchdown' to myself. Anyone who didn't see that coming....yeah.

    Someone HAS to be responsible for the middle of the field.

    i knew a run was coming, they called what, 3 straight pass plays down there? clearly theyre going to run... correct me if im wrong, but didnt we have a three man line? with like no LB's in the box... clearly lined up to defend another pass? It looked pretty silly to me, i knew it was a run and all i could see was NFL gamecenter at the time... after seeing the replay, all i could say was... wtf were our coaches thinking on that one?

    the game was lost on offense as much as it was on defense.

    I think it was a four man line with the rest of the defense spread out.

    I understand that you have to put a man on every receiver, but to leave the middle of the field open like that....:no:


    The smart thing would have been four defenisive lineman, one or two linebackers and five or six defensive backs.

    Wow. You guys saw it coming? Maybe you all should be the coaches. Gimme a break. The Texans called the right plays and took the win. It was a great game that just didn't go our way.

    i honestly had that horrible gut feeling schaub would end up running it in. didn't think it would be a designed run but once i saw there were no LBs it was very disheartening.

    oh theres no doubt about that man... but come on... you had to know it was coming. it was obvious. especially how we were lined up. I said it to everyone here, theyre going to run it in for a TD, and they did... just a lucky guess on my part more than me... "shoulda been a coach"

    they beat us, i kind of figured they would. I knew it was going to be a close one.

    You DIDNT see it coming when they lined up in a 5 WR spread with no-one on defense guarding the middle?

    No I didn't. It was a gutsy call that played off. If Schaub gets tackled the game is over. It was a high risk/reward play. Our coaches have done a hell of a job. The called the LT play last week, but missed this one. They can't all be winners. You guys might THINK you know more than the coaches but you would be wrong. But if you really think you can do a better job calling defensive plays maybe submit your resume to Wayne.

    I blame the play calling more than the actual players on the offensive side of the ball. Seriously, we threw the ball four or five times (maybe more?) on third and short. I mean, what the heck? Act like we don't have Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams on this team. Come on.

    Great. Then clearly your mother should be the coach of our Miami Dolphins.

    It's easy to blame the play calls. The coach, the QB, the players.

    It's harder to just accept that we were beaten by the better team and that's what happened.

    I never said I know more than the coaches. I didn't know they were going to run that play before they lined up in that formation, but once they did I knew it.

    In fact it's pretty standard for an offense to have two calls in that situation. If the QB sees the middle open on short yardage he takes it himself, if not he goes ahead with the play. It's even like that in middle school and high school football, all my offenses were like that too.

    I'm not claiming to know more than the coaches, but I was SCREAMING at the TV, "watch the QB draw". There was NO ONE in the middle of the field.

    Even if the ILBS went kinda inside. Who the hell plays man when in the RZ? Sit on a area and cover it!

    What do you mean Texans drew the right play? They had 5 WR it was a passing play it was Schaub who made the decision.

    how could you possibly know that? I thought it was a called QB draw from the start. Our Line was relentless in rushing up field and the Texans' coaching staff knew they'd over pursue.

    Pretty sure it was a pass play but Schaub saw the middle was open and ran up the gut.

    It never ever should have come down to a 4th and 2......what about the d-back allowing A. Johnson to catch the ball on 4th and 10?....were his hands glued to his body?.....could he not have gotten a hand on the ball? What about Hill dropping the easiest INT ever?.....or the other d-back who trapped the ball on the ground on that last series? How many opportunities did we give the Texans throughout the game? There was no way we should have lost this game. :tantrum: I would rather have gotten beaten 28-0 because at least you know you have gotten your azz kicked rather than just giving the game away. :angry:

    I'm not calling for Sparano's head. I am merely stating that I saw it coming.. as did everyone else in my household. Sparano has done a great job so far, taking over arguably the worst team in NFL history.

    I mean, was it difficult not to read that play from the start? Look at the defensive formation.

    I did not see it coming because well, i live in Vegas and the don't show texans or dolphin games... All i know is there is a bad taste in my mouth, i really hate looking back at everything that we could of done to win that game because well, it don't change what happen... We can blame the refs, our defense, our offense, which i think did a great job today, but after all that you end up with the same result, Miami is 2-3. We got a lot of work to do still. I still expect a 8-8 season and i think we will achieve that, hell maybe we do one better and go 9-8, you never know.

    Yeah I think it was a pass play as the receivers were running routes. Schaub just saw it wide open and did it himself.

    Ugh, it seems like the Bruins and Dolphins for me are just sharing so many problems and solutions. First Dolphins and Bruins both put out the Wildcat in the same week, then both lose to QB draws the same week, and then both suffer from poor CB play. :pity:

    Amazing, last week everyone was in love with the D and their goal line stop to win one and now everyone is bashing them because they didn't do it again. You play with fire sometimes you get burned. Bottom line, a better secondary and we wouldn't have goal line situations to ***** about. A better special teams play and the don't score a TD on the punt. A better offensive gameplan that controlled the game like it has the last two weeks and their offense is off the field mor and our defens gets some needed rest. Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda, whatever, we're a rebuilding team contrary to popular belief. Bottom line we win as a team we lose as a team.

    When they lined up, I said who do we have in the middle of the field? I received my answer shortley afterwards. :-( I still remember during the replays, watching two of our guys guarding one of theirs and bumping into one another.

    I knew it was gonna be a draw. I thought that Schaub was gonna run it the play before. I mean, he had already run it up the middle on us earlier in the game for like 12 yards. You just can't have no one in the middle of the field.

    How is this "amazing"? Last week the goal line D was awesome and deserved praise. Yesterday, it was inexcusable that there were no LBs or safeties in the middle of the field. Am I supposed to only praise our defense all season long, no matter how they play?

    I don't know if this is the 'youth' of our coaches in the positions they're in or just plain dumbness. I said the same thing...I screamed to my wife (who was upstairs) "OMG, they've left the middle wide open" and boom....there goes Schaub...

    Pasqueloni seems to have problems with playcalling at certain times and junctures in the game. That whole drive, where we'd had some success with pressure, he rushed 3 most of the drive and the secondary missed tackles and let guys get out of bounds... There wasn't a lot of pressure on Schaub all day, but absolutely none at that point.

    This entire staff, even tho their new, seems to have some idiocinracies that bug the heck out of me...why is Bess still returning KOs ?? Ok, you can give up on the PRs but Ginn is by far the better KO returner ?? What about the clock management in the Jests game ?? Arizona exposed our secondary and now Texans have too...look for more of that, but why haven't they made adjustments ?? Why wasn't Brown and RW getting the ball more in the early two games ?? It just seems to take them a long time to decide to change things when weaknesses or issues are exposed. There doesn't seem to be many in-game or half time changes either...

    This was a heartbreaking loss for the fans probably moreso than the team (or at least I hope). We won't get any points at the end of the season when they say we only lost by one point. Because of the recent history of this team, fans will get down on them for any 'questionable' moves or calls the coaches make. Like the Texans fiasco...
