Dolphins vs Packers game Summary 10/30/00

I sat in just over the 50 yard line, late in the first half and I thought that this season could end here. The Packers were up 17-0 and it didn't seem as if Miami could stop the Packers or anybody else. Then Miami turned it around and scored 28 unanswered points. The Dolphins are 6-2 at the mid point of the season. The schedule becomes much harder now. The Dolphins play the winless Chargers in 2 weeks and that's the only bad team the Dolphins will face the rest of the way. No Clevelands or Chicagos ahead. The dolphins are entering a 5 game strech in which they play 4 (!) road games. The Lions are next, on the road on artificial turf the Dolphins don't play that good. The Dolphins used special teams and trick plays to win, Izzo with the 39 yard run on a fake punt and Ogden with the 81 yard punt return for a TD.

Grading the Dolphins

QB - Fiedler (16 0f 25, 158 yards) played well, he didn't turn the ball over, he threw a nice TD to Gadsden and he also had a TD run on the QB sneak. B-

RB - Smith played well gainind 71 yards on 20 cariies and scoring a TD. He has 631 yards on the year, that's on pace to a Dolphin record of over 1200 yards. B+

WR - OJ McDuffie is back. He had 3 receptions for 17 yards. Shepherd is Fiedler's favorite reciever and he had a nice 37 yard catch and Gadsden also played well with 5 receptions for over 70 yards. B+

OL - They played OK. Fiedler had time to throw the ball and they did a good job on running plays. B

DL - The Packers ran freely all over the place and Favre usually had time to throw. I still remember the first quarter. C+

LB - It's not the same without Zach Thomas. He will probably sit out the Lions game also. Favre completed a lot of passes over the middle and Packer RB Green ran at times without being touched to the Dolphin secondary. C

Secondary - A nice game preventing the wild long throws by Favre. I also can not understand the pass inteference calls against Shaw. Madison also dropped a sure INT in the first half. A decent game. C+

Special teams - Huge game for the Dolphins on special teams. A fake punt taken 39 yards by Izzo. Jeff Ogden returned a punt 81 yards for the TD. Great game for the special teams. Mare has been short on his kickoffs all year. A+

Coaching - They took a chance on that fake punt play. They were conservative but not as much as in the past, learning the lesson the hard way after that Jets fiasco. They won and that's all that counts. B
