At a time when the Dolphins needed a good punt and outstanding special teams coverage, they get neither.

3. Here's the neglected kind of play that got the Dolphins beat: Brandon Fields hit a bad punt after that Dolphins series - a line-drive-ish 41-yarder - that Green Bay's Micah Hyde (ha, no relation) returned 17 yards to the Green Bay 40. That was a killer. A good punt and coverage would have put the Packers around their 20. So in a game where the Packers needed every second to win, they got a 20-yard advance on the punt from where they should have had it.

Looked like the coverage guy overran the play too.

Greenbay had the punt block on.... a move that even fooled the announcers... great coaching. On the other hand, Fields was surprised and hurried his kick... bad coaching.

Yep. Shoulda made the tackle so the drive could start at the 20.

His punting has been lousy at the worst possible times this year. When you talk about making a play, punters can do that also and Fields isn't close to that this year. Where are the good old 60 yard line drives he was so good at when he made the team (even though it created problems for the punt team? 25th this year so far.

Like everyone else on this team not a DE.... he's picking up his 9-5 paycheck.

When the Dolphins needed a clutch punt, Fields failed. I have noticed this about him for a while though in regards to line drive punts. He does not seem to get the air on his punt you see from some of the better punters.
