      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.

Pretty cowardly not trusting Brees to throw one into the end zone with 11 seconds left.

 

I agree with the call to kick it. Put points on the board and get to the half. You take a sack there and that’s a missed opportunity.

If you can't trust Drew Brees with an instruction like "throw it quick, don't take a sack" then I guess he's not as smart as people think.

I can see your viewpoint but Philly’s defensive front has proven they can collapse the pocket and get to the QB. I agree to go for the shot and if it’s not there throw it to the nosebleeds but I understand Payton going for the field goal.

The Eagles haven't scored since their first, what, two possessions? I can agree with the FG call. There's half a game out there, and plenty of time for the Saints to put more points on the board.

It never ceases to amaze me. Coughlin solved the Pats, but very few coaches take the info and use it. This is literally like Lombardi versus Landry and yet most teams just keep running their schemes.

I don't have a great deal of faith that Bob Sutton is going to do the right thing next week, either.

Calling a holding penalty on the receiving team before the ball has been kicked.... suspicious.

Oh boy, Rufus is going tinfoil hat on us! Black helicopters are circling the stadium! :P

It's amazing. I think the Saints have been called for more holds on this drive than the Eagles have all game.

 

Total BS too, just like the one at the end of the half.

Thomas might be the best in the league at catching a ball slightly short of the 1st but then torquing his body in such a way that he can pick up YAC to extend the chains.

The Saints committed, what, 30 yards worth of penalties on one drive? And still score a TD.

 

We hold once and its a guaranteed punt.
