If you are a member of the Suck For Luck crowd, this was a good day for you. The Dolphins had this game all but wrapped up. Leading 15-0 it looked like the Dolphins were going to pull out their first win of the 2011 season. Less than 5 minutes remained in the game and Denver's offense had been fully ineffective all day. The Dolphins hounded and pounded Tim Tebow all day.
But then the real Dolphins showed up. In a span of 2 minutes and 40 seconds, Tebow threw a 5 yard TD pass and Denver recovered an onside kick after it was knocked out of Marlon Moore's arms. Then Tebow threw a 3 yard TD pass then ran in the 2 point conversion to tie it up. Then in overtime Matt Moore fumbled in Dolphin territory and Matt Prater kicked a 52 yard field goal for the win.
At this point 0-16 would not surprise me at all. This Denver team without a doubt was the worst team left on the schedule. Maybe the last shot will be when Washington comes to town.
The next big question is does Tony Sparano survive after this debacle? Stephen Ross was on the sideline during the game. Would it have been a surprise if he told Sparano right then and there, come see me in my office? I'm going to go out on a limb and say we will have an interim head coach tomorrow morning.
