      The Bill Callahan era began here at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. For the first quarter it was really,really bad football being played by both teams. 
      The Redskins were determined to establish the Run game. The First Quarter all they established was that they still couldn’t run. Or pass. Or do much of anything. 
       
      It wasn’t until the 2nd Quarter that Peterson was able to start ripping the worst Run D in the League for chunks of 18 & 24 yards. The Skins managed to score a TD with a 25 yard pass to Scary Terry McLaurin. 
       
      The Dolphins would open the Second Half only managing five plays before the Redskins would get the ball punted back to them. They would run a balanced run/pass attack of six plays for 70 yards in 1:25 ending in McLaurin’s second touchdown of the day. The Defense would then get a turnover allowing the Offense to get to Field Goal range and add another 3 points to make the score 17-3. 
       
      To open the Fourth Quarter, Hopkins would miss a 55 yard Field Goal, leaving the score at 17-3.  After being sacked five times, the Dolphins would pull their own switcharoo at QB and go to Ryan “Neckbeard” Fitzpatrick which resulted in a touchdown drive for them, making it 17-10. They went for & recovered the Onside Kick. They also managed to not score any points after that. The Dolphins would find theirselves with ball at the 2:00 Warning. Fitzpatrick would take them on a 9 play 75 yard touchdown drive with six seconds remaining on the clock. Miami went for the win with the 2 Point Conversion and failed. The Redskins would recover the onside kick by Miami and Keenum took a knee to get the Redskins their first win of the season.

That uppercut was vicious.
:yes: Man, sometimes you wonder how boxers can take some of those hits. I guess they condition themselves somehow.

EDIT: Norman seemed like he could've continued though...:whoknows:

Oh well, nice win for the local guy (even if he did play around a little too much) :cool:

Yeah, quick stoppage but the guy had been ROCKED and was hanging through the ropes. The ref was justified, IMO.

Anthony Peterson's fighting tonight at 9 (his fight's probably closer to 10) on Versus.

Here's something I'd like to see (well, besides having just ONE major organization :mad: ): having a pound-for-pound belt, for which anyone's eligible. See how the heavyweights do against the lighter guys.

you must want to see a death in the ring :laugh: . the weight-classes serve their purpose.

i wouldn't mind seeing fewer weight classes though

Yeah, too many classes and belts right now, but as was said, if a heavy weight, even a loser, fought a welter, it would be bad. A lot of people listen to that old cliche that size doesn't matter, but that is BS. However, the sport just blows in comparison to what I watched growing up. It seemed back then Hearns, Hagler, Duran, and Leonard were always mixing it up. We just don't see those dream fights anymore, and when they do, they stink, because it's over-hyped, over priced, and these guys just don't seem to care as much.

I'd settle for that. Like every 10 pounds or so (or even more, like every 15).

i like the "every 15lbs" suggestion. i would have:

125

140

155

170

185

200

200+ = heavyweight

I could do that. So it'd be anything to 125, 126-140...186-200? I like. From 17 weight classes to 7.

I also think there should be a super heavyweight division. 225+. You see some great heavyweight fights with this scenario and the huge guys would be forced to fight each other instead of fattening up on 205ers.

Peterson is usually more exciting than he was tonight. it was a good technical performance, but he should've finished that guy he was facing.

Manny Pacquiao makes his debut at 135lbs tonight against David Diaz. it'll be interesting to see if his power is still there moving up in weight.

also September 13th is loaded, Joel Casamayor vs. Juan Manuel Marquez & Nate Campbell vs. Joan Guzman

Any one see the undercard of Lorenzo vs Soto? Soto dominated Lorenzo but got robbed by a disqualification

that disqualification is one of the worst decisions i've ever seen in any sport.

so far, Pacquiao has easily won the first 3 rounds of his fight

manny is killing him with speed right now, Diaz looks like he's moving in slow motion by comparison

Manny dominated Diaz. But have a lot of respect for Diaz. He got beat for 9 rounds and would not go down. 9th Round KO Manny

Seems like a one sided fight. Glad I didn't order it and it should have been on HBO anyway. I will be ordering the Cotto/Margarito fight.

So does anyone think Pacquiao will eventually move up to the next weight level and try and become a quintuple champ? Only 4 boxers have done that before (major titles only): Hearns, Sugar Ray Leonard, De la Hoya, Mayweather. De la Hoya's the only one to be a sextuple champion (major titles only).

theres a good chance he moves up for a fight against Hatton. before saturday's fight i would've thought it was too much, but i think Pacquiao would cause some serious problems for Hatton
