SEATTLE WINS IN MAJOR UPSET OF DEFENDING AFC UNDEFEATED DOLPHINS DROWN ON HOME TURF!mi3ART.thumb.jpg.a6655a647697002eefc236c20617f1eb.jpgSeptember 12, 2020 Miami, Florida.

THE COUNTDOWN: History is not something new to the Miami Dolphins in the Long Island Football League. They made history for years in this league until the changeover to TTC bottoms, and the mental mindset changed. It changed to create a league with the goal in mind to build 32 fiercely competitive teams no matter what. The teams should be able to compete at the same level to maintain balance and productivity in the league. The measurement tool for that is witnessing teams who had losing records the season before, who have become winners as a result of the draft. We did it with the Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Rams, Carolina Panthers, Green Bay Packers, and these Miami Dolphins after losing 18 total games in three consecutive seasons. The Dolphins were at the bottom of the barrel until last season, through the draft they turned it all around with Mark Duper, Mark Clayton, Jason Taylor, two great tackles in AJ Duhe and Manny Fernandez. The anchors to this team are Larry Little and Mercury Morris, but it seems they have slowed up this year, or rather coaches have studied them enough to be better prepared to play this team. By no means is Miami dominant. They are blue-collar guys.

The Dolphins made it all the way to the Super Bowl last year where they lost to the NFC Champion and defending 2018 Super Bowl Champion Los Angeles Rams, 44-41 in a spectacular overtime victory!

Miami won the AFC title last season. They are much improved, but Coach and LIEFL Commissioner, Billy O'C said, "Yes, we are improved, but we have a long way to go. We need consistency. So far in three games we have been consistent at (3-0), but in this league you can never take your opponents lightly. One false move and it could make or break a game.  Every second has to be managed carefully and Paddy Brannigan is on a roll. He's a great coach.  His coaching skills are carrying over to the theme of his winning teams. Brannigan has turned Chicago around, Denver, Pittsburgh, and these Seahawks around. All of his teams are dangerous. That makes him dangerous." Brannigan said, "It's tak

en the LIEFL a long time to get to this point, but the league continues to grow fiercely competitive all because of the draft. I guess as kids we weren't smart enough to figure that draft part out. We were a little behind most leagues but now that we have figured it out, and over the last 10 years it's been absolutely incredible. The guys that we once thought were great can't even play with the average guys in the league. That's when you know you've created a great League when on any given day, one team can beat another by great coaching and player performance."

That brings us to one of the greatest players of our beloved Long Island Electric Football League, Dolphins lineman Bob Kuechenberg. The "Kuech" dominated the league for years. Sadly, Kuechenberg passed away on January 12, 2019. In our league, he was very respected as a fierce player, but as the Tudor products made way for a new era of player bases, Kuechenberg's base is aging as a-year-old bottom that has had an amazing life. It's hard to let go of him, but we found some use for him even at Right Guard. He used to be the center. Someday it's possible that he might even be one of the tight ends when we finally let go of him on the line, which has changed the course of history for this team.

THE PLAY-BY-PLAY Seattle Seahawks (1-2) vs. Miami Dolphins (3-0)
On the kickoff Dolphins star kick returner Mark Duper ran the ball back 58-yards to open the game up giving Miami great field position at the Seattle 42-yard line. Jason Taylor, Larry Little and Bob Kuechenberg pressed the offensive seems for Mercury Morris. Miami looks undersized in comparison to Seattle's big front line, but they have speed over Seattle. Miami's play calling with Coach Billy O'C is fantastic. O'C believes in the run, but his passing according to other league members, is suspect at best. 
 
On first down the Seattle Seahawks stopped Mercury Morris, but on the next run Jason Taylor opened up a hole for Morris which spun Morris right through another hole for a 35-yard gain to the Seattle Seahawk 5-yard line! Great run! The NFC West Seahawks defense just beat-up that Dolphin front three as Morris lost five-yards on first down. Coach O'C quickly adapted by moving players around and meeting the necessary adjustments to compete with a tough Seattle front to figure out what the best match-ups are. O'C just restructured the entire front line after studying one play figuring out where his power needs to go. This confuses coaches who have to be able to adapt and adjust that the same pace. That's a challenge, but that's what makes him an excellent coach. He's figured and re-figured it five times before you set up.  On the next play Seahawks lineman Darryl Trapp made a huge tackle on Morris at the Seahawks four-yard line. On third down Mercury Morris caught a quick flip pass from Miami quarterback Dan Marino, as Morris gives Miami their first score of the game 7-0, with 5:39 left in the half!

It was Seattle's turn. Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, went into "Beast-Mode" opening up with a blazing 70-yard return as he exploded down to the Miami 30 yard line. Wow! On first down the Dolphin defense just exploded as they attack Lynch for a 15 yard loss. The ball gets pushed back to the 45-yard line of Miami as Coach Billy O'C prepared his defense for today's game. The Seahawks were stopped again, on second down by a relentless Miami defense. On third down quarterback Russell Wilson made a beautiful pass to fullback Shawn Alexander, who ran 45-yards into the end-zone for a touchdown to tie the game 7-7, as time ran out in the first half!
 
Duper took it back 46-yards on the kickoff return for Miami to start the second half. He was hit accidentally by tackle AJ Duhe which prevented a 100 yard touchdown return. Duper had an open field in front of him, cheating his own team out of the touchdown. The Dolphins offensive line started to really go at it with the Seahawks, as running back Mercury Morris picked up a speedy 20-yards to the Seattle 30! The Dolphins were threatening. That was one of the nicest plays we've seen by Morris and the front line of the Miami Dolphins. This game was an intense hard-hitting, fast-paced action-packed game. The Seahawks have put on an impressive performance against the defending AFC champions with 10:30 left to go in the game. On the next running attempt by Miami, the Seahawks defensive line came through again. This time they buried Morris at the 45-yard line on first down and Miami had to be thinking pass from the 45 yard line.
Miami put an incredible amount of pressure on themselves on third down. Quarterback Dan Marino was about to be sacked and he had only one man open that he could see in Miami fullback Larry Csonka. Marino unleashed a pass to Csonka who fell 12 yards short of a first time, putting Miami in a very tight spot.  The ball went back to Seattle after Miami was forced to kick a field-goal from the 32-yard line to give the Dolphins the lead 10-7, with 7:14 left to go in the game!
 
Slawson's Corner Andrew Slawson who was at the game said, "Coach Billy O'C made one mistake on that play and it is going to cost him the game because had Mark Clayton wide open down field an he totally missed the play. Brannigan is going to expose that mistake and take advantage. Clayton was fighting his way out of the play and he was wide open on the right side of the field and Marino missed the play entirely as the clock ticks away and the ball goes back to Seattle."
 
On the ensuing lick-return Miami's Jason Taylor made a great tackle Lynch's 41 yard kick return. On first down Seattle picked up five-yards on the play. Then Lynch took over with runs of 5 and 17 yards to the Miami 38-yard line with 3:03 left to go in the game with time running out. Seattle's Joey Galloway caught a 34-yard pass but went down at the one yard line with 41 seconds left to go in the game. Seattle's Marshawn Lynch becomes the hero on the game's final play as he catches a one yard touchdown from Wilson to upset the undefeated Miami Dolphins on their home turf 14-10 in a thunderous finish!
 
After the game Billy O'C said, "That one play that Csonka made caught cost me the game, I never saw Clayton. That's all it takes is one mistake and today, I made the mistake. What could I say? I'm not happy I made a big mistake. I should have waited the extra second but that's one of the problems when you only have a second to think, we make mistakes and this is one of those times where I cost my team a victory. In this division you can't afford to lose games because now it gives Buffalo a chance to recuperate and the Jets and even greater chance because we play them next week in New York." That's not going to be an easy game at all for the (3-1) Miami Dolphins.
 
Miami has to go back to the drawing board and prepare for their division rival New York Jets (2-2), and Seattle has just improved their chances of making the playoffs, but they still have a very difficult road ahead as they face two red-hot teams on the road in Philadelphia (2-1) and Washington (3-1)!

That was supposed to say the Kuech's player base is 49 years old.
