To be honest, we felt a bit like shark bait coming into the game...



But, forcing a fumble on the opening kick-off inspired the team - even though we muffed the recovery. Yes, the Dolphins won the game 24 to 21. But, the real winners were the Saints who won respect of their fans by keeping the much better team off-balance and confused most of the game.

Were it not for another missed Field Goal by a sure-footed and reliable Henery and a Saints fumble on their last drive - A fumble that should've been reviewed by the booth with under 2 minutes but wasn't - even though the runner was clearly down - the Saints would have won. But would have, should have, could have is just a sob story waiting to be told.

Miami found paydirt twice with play-action passes that exploited a blitzing nickel - once in the first quarter and again in the 2d taking a 14 to 0 lead into the locker room. The Saints could find nothing against a very stingy defense and missed their only scoring attempt when Henery booted a 50 yarder wide right.

But the 2d half saw the Saints come out with a vengeance, moving the ball down the field in 5 plays to score with a long pass to Arrelious Benn who made a spectacular one arm, over the shoulder, no look catch to bring the Saints to within 7.

A couple of back and forth punts later and the Fins managed to punch a 48-yarder through to go up by 10; 17 to 7. The Saints controlled the tempo of the game, but could not score and had to punt on 4th and inches to end a drive that had the Dolpins on their heels (or dorsal fins). What should've been a 1st down catch by Benn was ruled short. Even the replay showed the sure handed receiver fall past the 1st down marker - but that's the way the Saints' luck had been all day - starting with a Dolphin fumble on the opening kickoff that was recovered by the Saints but slipped out from under the player into the arms of a Dolphin.

It's sad to say we stopped the run by holding Hyde to just 123 yards, but truly we did - he should've run for over 200. The Dolphins moved the ball at will and scored another TD, going up 24 to 7 - but that was the last time they would see the end-zone as the Saints mounted an impressive comeback out of a 4 WR 1 RB set that the Dolphins used against them to score their last TD of the game - A little taste of ye own poison as we like to say in the Big Easy... the Saints scored not once, but twice to pull to within 3 points.



Blitz, Blitz, Blitz - Did someone say



seemed to be the only answer we had to slow Hyde, disrupt the pass play and get the ball back with just over 2 minutes to play. Using their final timeout to stop the clock before the 2 minute warning (we lost our other 2 timeouts on challenges gone wrong). But there was enough time and the Dolphins were watching the NBA playoffs on the sidelines and not paying attention to a mounting Saints drive that was destined for the end-zone, the coach's mind already made up - no FG for a tie it was 7 or bust.

Well nothing is what we got after McCoy busted through the line, jumped over a linebacker and scampered down the sideline for the first down. After being tacked from behind, his knees and elbows clearly on the ground, he released the football. The refs, who were also watching the NBA playoffs, let the play go as a fumble. With 1:30 left in the game, the booth should've reviewed it and obviously give the ball back to the Saints so that they could continue their march to victory and reign triumphant over the visiting shark bait... but noooooooo, Madden Gods say they had enough of Saints good fortune... Dolphins ball, Dolphins game.

No, we're not bitter... :) We've grown accustomed to such luck. How does that old Hee Haw song go... "...If it weren't for bad luck we'd have no luck at all... blue, despair, and agony on me..."

Great game Brett - it's not your fault you won.

Another amazing PFL article this season. I think this year takes the cake as far as great article writing goes. I feel like in almost all of the stellar games this year that I was almost there. I can't wait for some of these rematches next season!

Thanks Jim. I thought about taking the last line out cause it sounds a bit arrogant and rude, but OneNole and I talked at length after the game and there truly are no hard feelings here - it was a great game and luck happened to be with Miami this time. He knows he got away with one.

:wink:

I will delete the Shark photo in a week or two - it is huge and pushes my page to the right - but I thought it was a great opener... Makes me chuckle every time I see it.
