Now for the rest of the story. Cam looked more like a coach, Lemon more like QB, Taylor like the defensive MVP, and Camarillo more like the best slot reciever there is. Amazing what a win can do.

No defensive collapse? Did you see the last two minutes of game and first drive in OT? The Ravens gave away game. Fins are still God-awful bad. Win will cover up deficienies for a week and then we'll be back to reality. Might be another year before they win again.

Notice that the guy lives near Baltimore, not Miami. Sounds like a bitter Ravens fan to me! Let him be bitter! LOL!

WE WON!!! Like Wayne said, it was like winning the Super Bowl. In my sec. everyone was hugging and high fiveing each other, I was practically in tears myself. I said it yesterday morning, I smell victory in the air... usually a win is a win, and a loss is a loss, we go home happy or sad, but this was special. LETS GO PHINS!!!

And for those Beck-lovers that were ripping TRUE Dolphin fans for wanting Lemon in there so that we could get a win, and who said 1-15 or 0-16 doesn't make a difference, I will be accepting apologies for having my "ulterior agenda" exposed and wanting my team to win. Lemon was the better choice, and Beck would have LOST that game. Accept it and move on. I have no problem with Beck starting the next two weeks,(If he is the QB of the future, get him exposed to NE as soon as possible), but the abuse heaped on "unobservant" Dolphin fans was unfair and just wrong. To have people in Seattle say that people in Miami are not true Dolphin fans is laughable. Go cheer for the Seahawks if you don't like a fan that dares to suggest areas of improvement on this 1-13 team. I am not a Beck-hater, just a realist that sees the difference between a 26 year old "project" QB and a true starting NFL QB.

thanks for showing up at the game and the practice to give this years team luck. it is cause of u guys that this team finally won a game even though it was in overtime. Please keep showing up to the rest of the games so this team will be 3 and 13 when the season is finally over.

Wow, eleven comments so far about the Dolphins and everybody is already off to work. One of two things rings true here. Either Sun readership is way down or the Dolphins have lost a lot of fans. I wonder if Sentinel officials ever read these comment pages. Nope, too busy swindling businesses into thinking Sun advertising is effective. "How may we help you?"

Except for the fact that they'd been to the Super Bowl the year before they drafted Dan Marino. In 1981, they played what is considered one of the greatest games in NFL history against the Dan Fouts-led San Diego Chargers.

Those who don't know their history before they post are doomed to reveal their true ignorance. Better to be silent and thought a fool than open your mouth (keyboard) and remove all doubt.

Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS Dolphins. THank you for the early CHristmas gift.

Anyone else notice that Miami has played three of the AFC North teams really close this season?

Losing to Pittsburg in Pittsburg 3-0
Beating Baltimore in OT.
I wonder if this bodes well for the Dolphins chances against the Bengals in Week 17.

How can you say the defense didn't collapse down the stretch.They let a rooking QB tie the game and in OT if not for the miss FG you would have been talking about another
defensive collapse......
The "D" did lets us down. down the stretch

Good post. I say let Cleo Lemon start the rest of the way and finish the season. He got us the first win. He gives the Dolphins the best chance to win now. He deserves a chance to do it. Beck's time will come, but to expect a rookie QB to work miracles after losing the 1st and 2nd-string RBs, having the #1 WR traded away, and all the other adversity the Dolphins have faced is too much. Even a rookie Dan Marino wouldn't fair too well under those circumstances.

(BTW, I was born in Fort Lauderdale and grew up in south Florida, so please don't let the fact that I currently live in the DPRC[Democratic Peoples' Republic of California] cloud my fanship credentials. I've been a fan since watching throughout the 70s and proudly and publicly wore my Dolphins paraphernalia yesterday in Raiders/4th and Niners country before and during the game yesterday.

I agree and yet disagree. The 72 Dolphins need to save that mojo for IMPORTANT games, like the Chicago Monday night game or this Ravens game. Plus I think they will not be welcomed the same way in NE for next week's game. Why get our treasured 72 players snowplowed by some convict with a grudge and an inability to pronounce the letter 'r' when we can keep them for important home games.
