Moss's third touchdown was nothing short of highway robbery! It was clearly offensive pass interference but somehow Miami got tagged with yet another phantom plenty. That's the score that put this game out of reach.

Hosed again by the officials!!!

Odd that the refs never get credited for 'bad' calls that allow the dullfins to win.

A couple of not-so-random thoughts after reading this article: FIRST, is anyone really surprised that Moss, being the 'class act' he is (tongue-in-cheek humor, for anyone tempted to misconstrue my intent) would feel 'disrespected by single coverage, which in the next breath, he admits he 'loved' because it enabled him to get in the endzone easier than otherwise? As for me, you can be sure I'll continue disrespecting the lack of professionalism that defines Randy Moss (see the Oakland years for details). Maybe he ought to worry more about, oh, actually winning a Super Bowl for instance (something which, BTW, Jerry Rice did several times with far more class and far less chest-thumping fanfare in his illustrious career) instead of personal visceral reactions to single coverage against a team they were SUPPOSED TO beat handily twice based on preseason predictions. SECOND, is anyone really surprised that one of the league's premier skill position players would receive preferential treatment and a psychological benefit of the doubt from the official on a play that was close enough to go either way? Yeah, call me cynical, but it's what happens in the league. It wouldn't be the first time Moss pushed off, and it certainly won't be the last. Nor is Moss the only player to benefit from such treatment. It happens with most stars in most sports leagues. It's not new. The NFL, like the NBA, is a league marketed on the basis of its stars. And anyone who thinks refs aren't human enough to be subconsciously influenced by a player's star status to the point of giving the stars a benefit of the doubt on close plays is extremely naive. It's just the way it is and you have to live with it, like it or not. For the record: I don't.

Moss should not feel so "Dissed", when you have so-called "Dolfans" congradulating, and patting him on the back, after he made at touchdown in the fans inzone area. I can't believe you Dolphin fans down there. Don't pat that guy on the back after he scores a TD on "YOUR" team!!! Come on...get a clue!!!

Now you have some insight regarding dullfin fan intelligence.
None of them saw Crowder throw the first blow, not even when replayed. None of them remember the kick-off that was returned THE WRONG WAY or the ensuing stupid penalties for mouthing-off (thanks Joey, I appreciated your stupidity and so did Sporano. None of them remember the lop-sided score of the first meeting, thanks to the gimmick play and a decimated starting Patriot line-up, but now accuse the Pats of 'running up' the score, with their back-ups, in this meeting. All of them claim bad/paid-off refs, but none of them remember that the Pats were on the short end of ALL the 1st quarter calls and still stayed in the game.
It's simple. The Pats outcoached and outplayed them with back-up players to the tune of a 20 point win.

what a tool. Didn't read where he said that he pushed off on 2 Td's without getting flagged. Keep your mouth shut and enjoy the refs looking the other way Randy.

Totally agree. The NFL/refs have an agenda when it comes to the Pats. Keep them in games with calls. It stinks!

Moss is washed up. He knows he is old and should retire......The problem is, Our Corners are so bad that they cannot cover this washed up WR.

Of course he's washed up. That's why the SMART teams still double and triple cover him.
Looks like that leaves just ONE 'team' out of the smart group, huh?

The dullfins beat the back-ups in the 1st game and those back-ups came back to knock off your starters. How embarrassing!

What's embarassing for these Pats fans is that their lives are so sad that they have to come to a Dolphins website to talk trash. How pathetic. Get a life.

There is a strong safety in the NFL that will CLOCK this clown, once and for all.

Not implying anything that would harm him permanently but a "hit" just to shut his "washed up" a** up !

No, what's really embarrassing is finding out that there are more fans of opposing teams living RIGHT HERE in S. FL. and going to/watching the games just to see the dullfins get whupped.
If it weren't for those fans, the dullfins could play in a phone booth and STILL not sell out.
Geez, that's not only embarrassing; it's pathetic!

The Dolphins beat them the first time by doubling Moss. The passing underneath theory for five and six yard gains is alot less of a gamble than one on one with Moss. I think it was Starks that intercepted one of those 5 yards passes in the first game.
First offensive series, the Patriots scored a field goal. Could have been worse. On the Dolphins first offensive series, it was just that...OFFENSIVE. Pennington goes to handoff to the invisible man. Ricky falls down after handoff. Pass to no one. Punt. They were all nervous. Gratefully, they calmed down and made a game of it till the fourt quarter. Then the wheels fell off the defense.
The Dolphins simply can not and should stop trying to run up the middle. Second quarterback run straight up the middle for a touchdown this season against the Dolphins. Someone has to be held accountable. I know, they were playing pass protect. Heard that one before.
Pennington had a good game aside from the interception and that first series. Bess did a nice job. Camarillo showed his gratitude for the new contract. I truly feel sorry for Jason Allen. He seemed to be a half step behind most of the game. Coaches should have changed the coverage on Moss at halftime. He did have that one nice break up that led to the interception.
I wonder how this game would have gone had it not been hyped up so much. In any event I hope they learn to play calm from this.

agree, leaving this "washed up" wr alone one on one is a good coaching on the dolphins part.

"Moss gained 125 yards on eight catches, several of the circus variety. It was his best day since an injury ended Brady's season in September, and he took advantage of frequent single coverage by the Dolphins."

dolphins lame.

Another HOF athlete playing the disrespect card. What a jerk. Can't he just get motivated to get motivated. Because he's a pro making millions of $$$? It wasn't like the coverage was bad. Moss just made great plays. He's still a teenager mauturity wise. Next week, he'll lay down like the punk he is.

And Porter shows maturity? Can't he just shut up and play? Oh yeah, he got neutralized and cried like a baby. Crowder threw a cheap shot AFTER the whistle and got slapped silly for it; real maturity there too, huh?
