FISH FRY: Miami Dolphins Embarrassed By Chicago Bears, Shut Out On Primetime Television, 16-0

Tonight was a good night. The Chicago Bears took the Miami Dolphins to the woodshed, pummeling them 16-0. They dominated ALL aspects of the game and clicked on all cylinders. The Dolphins have now dug themselves a serious hole in the AFC East, and may have seen their season and playoff hopes go down in flames tonight. I love it.


Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown COMBINED for 6 carries for 11 rushing yards! That's terrible! Ricky should go back to smoking marijuana, he put up better higher numbers back then. 

The Bears sacked QB Tyler Thigpen six times. You know, the supposed 'mobile' quarterback who was going to give Chicago all sorts of problems, according to many analysts before the game. Well, it didn't turn out that way.

I'll post the ESPN box score, because it's glorious. Note the three bolded statistics: third down conversions, rushing yards and time of possession.

I'd just like to congratulate the Miami Dolphins and their wonderful fan base, for defending Sun Life Stadium to the best of their ability, going 1-4 at home thus far this season.
