This week's Game Balls are brought to you courtesy of Sprint.
Frankly, I don't want to hand out any game balls this week. I'm still pretty angry about the pathetic display we were all subjected to on Sunday in the Dolphins' loss at home to the Bills. But I'm contractually obligated to hand out some awards. So let's get this over with.
1-Yard Game Ball: Kevin Curtis. Curtis was only targeted twice in his 2010 debut. He was overthrown deep when he had a step on the defender. And he caught a short pass for six yards just before halftime. But the dude overcame cancer to get back on the field. That's just awesome - it's that simple. So he gets a game ball just for being out there.
2-Yard Game Ball: Koa Misi. I could have given this one to Tony McDaniel or Randy Starks. But Misi has continually improved this year - particularly setting the edge. He made a tackle for a loss and picked up his fourth sack of the year.
3-Yard Game Ball: Paul Soliai. PAY THE MAN!! Soliai again had an outstanding performance in the middle of Miami's defense - spearheading a defense that held Buffalo's running backs to just 52 yards rushing on 24 carries.
4-Yard Game Ball: Davone Bess. D-Bess had another solid outing, making nine receptions for 78 yards. One of those was yet another 3rd down conversion, giving Davone 21 such receptions - 3rd most in the league.
5-Yard Game Ball: Brandon Marshall. This is the kind of performance we all were expecting to see each and every week. Marshall's 11 receptions were a season high and his 106 yards receiving was his third highest total of the year. I can't wait to see what Brandon can do in Miami once this team starts running a real NFL offense.
Sack: Entire offense and offensive coaching staff (other than Marshall and Bess). I talked about it at length yesterday. No need to recap it all again. To sum up, the offensive line continues to play poorly. Miami's backs look slow. Chad Henne is playing poorly. And Dan Henning runs a predictable offense with bad play-calling.
Other than that, though, things are wonderful.
