The Miami Dolphins opened up the 2013 NFL preseason by dropping what was a slopfest to the Dallas Cowboys 24-20 Sunday night.
As part of the Hall of Fame Game, the Fins were poised to reveal their new-look uniforms, and a new-look team, bringing irrational, over-the-top enthusiasm for the fans, as they are wont to do this time of year.
But, Dolphins are gonna Dolphins, as their very first offensive play resulted in a lost fumble. They turned the ball over twice in the first half, resulting in two touchdowns for the Cowboys. They didn't create any turnovers. And the offense looked as stagnant as ever.
So, fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts.
Here are our favorites:
Jeff Ireland is unimpressed with the HOF, as he is often surrounded by busts.

That is the most Dolphins play ever. Force fumble, miss 8 chances to recover and give up 10yards

The Dolphins are doing everything they can to justify NBC's decision not to have them on Sunday Night Football this year.

Dolphins fans, NBA TV is showing a Heat-Bulls game at 11. Which game? No idea. But my guess is Miami won and it will make u feel better.
