    It’s a gamethread. With a miracle win over the hated Pats.
    Let him have his fun. My two cents anyway. It s the the highlight of his year.

    The odds of that happening in that situation are not worth passing up 4th down.

    compared to the odds of a 70 yard touchdown in 7 seconds?

    Brady after game: Thought we had one timeout, play that should never happen.

    That’s where I came out. But honestly, I thought about Carlos’ alternative long and hard. The defense is that bad.

    He didn't know how many time outs they had? That makes me feel even worse.

    The odds of either are tiny. So just go for it and give yourself a chance to seal the game without them touching the ball again.

    Yeah I don’t think either approach is ridiculous, and dwelling on it probably puts lipstick on the pig because that hook and ladder play is a touchdown in that scenario no matter what

    Correct, he said he got confused and lost track of them. Thought he had one left.

    The amount of stupid things that had to happen for the Pats to lose that game. It's hard to wrap one's head around.

    Lol so ‘fuck you’ and ‘that’s right, I apologize for nothing, everyone can fuck themselves’ is cool as long as you’re emotional and your team that hasn’t won a playoff game in like two decades gets an improbable victory?

    it's really frustrating. this team could at least make the SB if they had the 1 seed. they're going to be 8-0 at home and play like a championship contender there. they've really torpedoed their chances today and in the dumbest way imaginable.

    It’s about perspective - critiquing Brady today means you just accept that the defense is shit.

    I can’t accept that. Belichick is supposed to be a brilliant defense mind, yet his drafting and coaching on that side of the ball has been piss poor for a long times. That warrants some criticism

    too many things can go wrong...for such a slight advantage...turnover? Potential of giving up the pass to see up a winning FG. They made the right call but Gronk had no business being out there

    Gronk after game: Practiced for the Hail Mary at the end of the game, and I didn't touch it. We practice it, got to be ready for anything, the way it ended, I mean, it sucked. Test of character big time, how we bounce back from that. Gotta make that tackle. That's football.

    Yep. Brady was really good today. Total rookie brain fart on the play at the end of the half.

    But a 99.9% chance to win the game on that last play. That should never in a million years happen.

    There were a lot of weird things that could happen but almost all of those things are scenarios where the dolphins score a touchdown to win, not a fg. So why pass up the 50% or so chance of just punching the ball in to end the game?

    I have accepted the defense is shit. And they will draft a tight end and a QB next year.

    to be fair, a td only puts them up 8, chances of ghost missing an extra point to keep it a 1 score game are higher than what we just saw

    It looked easy because half the Patriots defense totally gave up on the play. THAT is what I can't fathom.

    And it’s not a one time thing

    Go back to every dolphins pats game thread over the years. It’s the same immature garbage over and over and over. And what’s sad is I think he adds some value to the Miami thread. He just goes off the rails once the games start.

    It looked like those plays where they have a sick kind on the field to give them an experience.

    The defensive never really tried to tackle him.

    Or to put it another way, it was like a bunch of bad guys fighting the hero in a movie. They all came one at a time, so it wasn't trying to beat 11 defenders, it was beating 1 defender 11 times so to speak.

    Was out with my daughter at the mall and shut the phone off after the FG. Got into the car and turned on the radio and I almost shit myself. What the fuck.

    The last play was obviously a travesty but they fucked that game up six ways from Sunday. Never should have come down to the last play.

    Glad the Ravens lost. Only thing worse than playing in Miami is playing Baltimore.

    God the Dolphins are so bad at everything. Unless there is a play that I do not know about how is this not called the "The MIracle in Miami" not fucking Hard Rock Stadium, god they suck so much.

    The Patriots did not deserve to win this game the way they played, but the Dolphins also suck so much they did not deserve to win either. Both teams should be given a loss.

    He was like a 5th round pick.

    They need elite speed on that D and they’ve made no attempt in the draft to acquire it

    You play the final 90 seconds 200 times I bet the Pats are the one seed right now about 180-190 of them

    The @MiamiDolphins game-winning 69-yard touchdown on the final play against New England is the longest play from scrimmage to win a game with no time remaining in the fourth quarter since the 1970 merger.

    Yeah, I'm coming around to this line of thinking. Even if you don't convert, the Dolphins need to go 95+ yards to win. And to those saying "but they can just go 70 yards and kick the field goal", that just doesn't happen in 12 seconds. Any 70 yard play is going to take longer than that to get into long field goal range. Notice how probably 75% of the final play in the game happened with 0:00 on the clock. Getting a big chunk play at that point and still having time on the clock for a field goal is physically impossible.

    Fuck, Jones looks even worse on replay. Literally all he had to do was stand still and wait for Stills to catch the ball, then tackle him. Instead, he goes for the ball. For some god forsaken reason.

    also where is the rest of the secondary, they weren't going to catch drake, but at least there are linemen in the picture there who ran their ass off just to get close

    The key block that sprung Drake at the 30 yard line and neutralized the last guy who could have made a tackle was made by #62 (Ted Larsen). The same #62 who was the closest person to Tannehill at the time he threw it. He ran 55 yards downfield and made the biggest block of the play, while everyone on the Patriots defense gave up. Just terrible effort by the Pats D.

    The kid from Purdue was a nice player but far from the solution to their problems. The D is slow as fuck and minimally athletic...he wasn’t changing that

    Isn't GTFB Devin's job description? This coaching staff makes some incredibly stupid decisions sometimes.
