Not good.

Not the Dolphins. Not the Cowboys. Not this night.

This preseason rehearsal that was supposed to show how ready these two teams are for the 2014 season instead showed that the Cowboys are, as one of their longtime employees confided, likely in for a season where their perpetual and unsatisfactory 8-8 records seem like the good times.

The Dolphins, meanwhile, showed their defense is probably what everyone has been seeing the past few years and expects for the coming season — a pretty solid, veteran group capable of stifling quality opposing talent such as Tony Romo and Dez Bryant and Jason Witten.

But the Miami offense?

The unit that is undergoing much change and hoping for much development while carrying much of the burden for 2014 is still, at best, a work in progress.

(Peanut gallery: But it’s the preseason. Relax. It doesn’t count.)

Well, that is true. It is the preseason and the fact the first-team offense has not scored a touchdown the past two preseason games doesn’t really count even if it does remind of the final two games of 2013 when that same unit managed only one score.

3 points in the 1st half is horrible for the dress rehersal.

The more things change, then more they stay the same.

It seems that we have talent and depth, but the problem positions are so glaring, they kill the rest of the team. And it's preventing making the leap from mediocre to playoff team.

Armando:s being over dramatic. The. Cowboys have one of the better passing attacks & more often than not, our secondary gave Romo no place to throw the ball.

Though our O & ST repeatedly shot themselves in the foot, the O moved the ball on the ground & through the air. The silly interceptions and fumbles can be corrected.............I'd be more concerned if we repeatedly went 3 & out.

Exactly tommynolefan. Miami needs to trade for boone. It might cost a lot, but why penny pinch for a mediocre to bad team? There is talent but certain spots are bad and thats been a recurring theme for years.

Miami was 0-2 in the turnover battle and the score was 3-3. Any other year, it would have been 13-3 in favor of the Cowboys. So Kudos to the defense. It is preseason. Sims fumble severly wounded Mo, and RT's bludgeoned him to death.
