(Usually I hate whining about officiating, but it was hard to ignore the poor officiating in this game...)

 

Momentum is big deal, especially in a close game like this...

 

Coming out at halftime we get a big 3-and-out, march down the field, and score a touchdown...

That would've been a huge momentum swing our way, probably would've changed the entire way the second half played out.

Just to get called back.

 

Then there's plays like the ridiculous spot on the turnover on downs... Would've been another big momentum swing...

Instead there's all the time stoppage for measuring, making Pagano challenge, even more time stoppage...

Killed momentum again...

 

(And of course there are the other no-calls and poor calls that I didn't mention.)

 

I guess I won't go so far as to say the refs cost us the game. We did still have chances to win it at the end.

 

But it was extremely frustrating.

They didn't cost the Colts the game.

 

Most of the penalties they called were objective penalties. 

 

 

 

Andy, you can take your objectivity elsewhere. The Refs absolutely cost the Colts the game. There is a time to be objective and then there is just reality. I choose reality!

Don't worry the league will release their "we screwed up" report. And they'll apologize. But it will change nothing.

You guys are hilarious. Miami had many bad calls go against them. Wake being held. A fumble recovery by the Colts even though the play was blown dead. Awful ball placement.

 

No need to be babies about it.

I absolutely hate to do this... But come on! Blatant no-calls on pass interference and unnecessary roughness, as well as the bullcrap call of the "illegal shift" that negated the touchdown to fleener. Are you kidding me? Since when can a receiver not go in motion??? We won this game guys, you can't beat the refs and the dolphins. Terrible officiating.

haha.

Two plays that were called correctly is your evidence for Miami having bad calls too? Your a funny guy. A little silly. But funny.

Lol yeah we got outplayed and lost by 4 with a chance to win in the end.

That's a hilarious punch line for Fins fans.

No calls were made against the Dolphs all game. So I feel the odds of you guys playing a perfect game are pretty low. Naturally the refs will take some abuse. And rightfully so.

The refs have botched calls in two games that I have seen the Greenbay vs. San Fransisco game, and ours... maybe a time has come to make them accountable. Fines, or remove them from the NFL.

As I mentioned, we didn't play well in the 2nd half, but to take away a TD and a clear hold at the end (both plays, that could change the game late dramatically) is not comparable to those plays you mentioned.

 

I mean, we also didn't get unnessesary roughness on some plays. Those goes both way, as you sure also had some missed calls, I assume. But a TD taken away on a clear mistake is different.

No need for this, we didn't get outplayed. Both teams were pretty even. Perhaps you got the best of us, I could agree. But outplayed? No. It was a really close game.

Me thinks the Fins fan didn't realize the foolishness of saying we got outplayed and lost by 4. Doesn't speak wonders about the Dolphins.

HORRENDOUS officiating that actually went both ways. There were multiple defensive holding calls against the Dolphins that were not called, not sure about that "illegal shift" that robbed us of a td either.

 

Also, not sure how they called that a fumble against Tannehill. That looked like an incomplete pass and tough to justify a fumble there.

True. It didn't cost them a TD, though.

Gentlemen, as a Dolphins fan...you must be joking. That "fumble" by Tannehill that gave you perfect field position at our 40. Clearly an incomplete pass. Simply a well coached Dolphins team. The refs called it both ways and it was a good game.

Who is this really, Tom Brady? The ball was knocked out of his hand... and the only reason it went forward was because of his wrist. There is no tuck rule to save quarterbacks now either.

I will repeat yet again. We lost a TD on a 100 percent wrong call. Huge difference.

 

That fumble was reviewed from multiple angles, and the referee must have seen evidence on a fumble. He lost control just before moving his hand forward.

We got out played but every close call went Miami's way plus this stat line 0 flags on Miami for 0 yards. I am not willing to say they cost us the game because we had almost a full half after they took away the TD but games like this is why fans do blame refs because it did seem a bit one sided today.
Thank You Peyton! I look forward to the day you come home and we get to do this good bye thing right!

Officials only part of the problem. I'm not one to beg fo a flag but do agree this game was rough to watch. I'm tired if the hype for Pagano has done nothing in two yrs and don't see any flash out of Pep either should have never let Bruce leave. GM  of the yr by butt this team is 6-10 at best. Hate to see what San Fran gonna do to the team.

For your information Pagano has coached a total of 5 games in two years. That's hardly two years. The Colts didn't have a choice if Arians left or not. ZIf the Colts wpould have let Pagano go and hired Arians that would have been the most classness thing that Irsay could have done. I can understand you not being happy with the Colts right now but no need to make stuff up.

Get a grasp on the rules. The ball has to be in control of the QB when his arm is going . Because it rolled to his wrist or forearm area after it was dislodged , doesn't mean it was a forward pass. Now either post something that is factual or go bother your Dolphin fans.

Funny the amount of Fins fans that like to chirp, only after they know they've won.

Weird right? Almost like they would only have the courage to post when there's nothing on the line.

My favorite part was when the chain fell off as they were measuring for the 1st down. Facepalm.

 

Yes.  They should have had to recalibrate the chains after that.!

I'm also mad that bradshaw wasn't in blocking on last play instead of brown.

This.  There will always be bad calls that go both ways, but putting Brown in to block instead of Bradshaw I think lead directly to the sack.  The dolphins won this game fair and square.  We knew it would be a hard fought game with a couple calls making the difference.  It has worked to our favor in the past, this time it didn't.  Next week will be tough, looks like we're going to face a 1-2 record going into the Jaguars game.  We win that and we're 2-2 facing a Seahawks game.  THAT game sets the tone for the whole year, to me.  If we beat them, we make the playoffs.  Remember, we won a lot more games last year than we "should have."  I don't consider a winning record and missing the playoffs a failed season.  We weren't "supposed" to win more than 5 games last year, and I think falling back a little doesn't diminish what we've done. We have a LOT of work to do, and we're capable of surprising many teams but I don't think our talent level equals that of our expectations. The injuries definitely add a negative dimension to our play, but just like any team that is NOT an excuse.  It's about building a TEAM and we can't fall back into the same habit of "Our QB can carry us into the playoffs" because that is exactly why we lost in so many postseasons.  Defense is my No. 1 concern, and we're on the right path for that.  Another year or two and we should be dominant favorites to win the AFC.  Of course, a draft pick like Bridgewater or Clowney to the Jags or Titans could sway that, but what is the NFL if not one giant crap shoot.  Go O-Line!  Go D-Line!  Go DBs!  Go COLTS!!!  We really are a GREAT organization!

These refs were pretty bad. The only calls they got right were the ones they used the replay booth for.

 

So the replay booth clearly shows a ball on the ground in the catch they over turned?   I must have been blurry eyed because I never seen the ball touch the ground.

No doubt we lost the game and it was not stolen from us. But for these nerds to the "refs called it both ways" is so lame when they had zero penalty yardage. Then the "Cameron Wade was held" stuff on top of that crap. Pretty gutless officiating , late hits , the one on Wahlen which would have been a huge call on a lousy play ... but was PI. Anyway 3 points in the second half and its our bad.

Yes, not ONE penalty on the Dolphins.  That IS unheard of and I think there was one or two calls that should have been blown.  No matter how you look at it though, I feel they out played us.  It's not often that I can say a straight football game was played but this was one.  They beat us, and I'm ok with that.  We showed so much improvement.  I think Werner and the pass rush looked good, even if our containment didn't.  I haven't looked at the stats, but watching the game I feel like we played a good game and we were just outdone.  I was hoping for a comeback in the fourth, but having Brown in instead of Bradshaw sealed the deal for us.  I think Brown played admirably, but he should not have been in on that last play.  Luck held on to the ball too long on some plays, and threw behind the receivers on a few more.  He didn't have his best game but he is still impressive as all get out.  Hopefully we don't get blown out next week, though I still anticipate a loss. I just hope we can still move down the field as effectively as we've proved we're able to.
