Panthers-Dolphins one-liners

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart went through pregame warmups in uniform, but his Achilles’ tendon injury forced him to the sideline for the game.

QB Matt Moore completed two 20-yard-plus passes and led a touchdown drive in an effort to win the Panthers’ backup job.

Panthers T Jeff Otah limped off the field at one point, but he was okay at the end of the game.

New Panthers LS J.J. Jansen made a poor snap on a field goal try, which coach John Fox blamed on the baseball infield at LandShark Stadium.

Three different Panthers punt returners either fumbled or muffed the ball.

The Wildcat was used to good effect by the Dolphins.

Miami reserve RB Lex Hilliard had a 39-yard touchdown run as part of his second strong preseason game.

Undrafted rookie Chris Williams mishandled a punt for the second straight week, which should hurt his chances of making the Dolphins.

The Dolphins gained 141 yards on the ground, thanks in part to an increased workload for RB Ronnie Brown.

Dolphins coach Tony Sparano was pleased by the performance of his interior defense.

    That game was a good game, as far as preseason goes. From what I saw, the Fins are going to be better this year than last, and all the “experts” who are putting them as a fringe team are going to find out that they are wrong. Pennington looks great (except that he still has receivers waiting on long passes cause of his sub-par arm) and our backfield is as deep as anyone’s. Brown, Williams, Cobbs and Hilliard – WHAT A BACKFIELD! Unfortunately, I think one of them (probably Hilliard, maybe Cobbs) is going to be traded, but it’s a nice position to be in.
    QB is deep as well, with Henne behind Penny (couldn’t resist) and if we make White a WR to save having to make him emergency QB, we are going to be TOUGH. The defense will be back to top 5 form and all you AFC Easters better watch out cause the 09 Fins are no joke!
