Those 0-12 Miami Dolphins

After today’s game, Miami looks almost certain to go 0-16 this year.

MIAMI – A shaky showing by rookie quarterback John Beck doomed the Miami Dolphins’ latest bid for a win. Beck threw three interceptions and lost two fumbles Sunday, and the Dolphins fell to 0-12 by losing to the New York Jets 40-13.

Beck’s turnovers led to a touchdown and three field goals. In three starts, he has yet to direct the offense to a touchdown.

Despite the Dolphins’ woeful record, they were favored by 1 1/2 points, and the game was touted as their best remaining chance to avoid the NFL’s first 0-16 season. Instead, the margin of defeat was their widest yet.

Miami extended a franchise-record losing streak to 15 games, and Cam Cameron remained winless as an NFL coach.

The Jets wore navy and gold throwback Titans uniforms and looked like a different team, winning by a lopsided score for the first time this season. They improved to 3-9, with two of those wins over Miami.

I don’t know what else to say about the Dolphin season. Beck had a really bad game, but he has few tools at present. I’m not passing any final judgment on whether Beck is going to be Miami’s future QB. However if the team can’t start scoring some offensive touchdowns soon, the franchise may have to start looking at Qbs in the 2008 draft.

The defense was pathetic again. I’m starting to sound like a broken record. Then so do the 2007 Miami Dolphins.
