Dolphins get a flight delay after their plane bumps into another plane

It was bad enough for the Miami Dolphins that they traveled to Dallas and got the tar whooped out of them by the Cowboys, losing 30-13 in their preseason finale.

"The only good news is this part's over. We have to move forward," head coach Joe Philbin said afterward.

Not so fast, coach!

The Dolphins then headed to their team plane, trying to shake off the shame of an 0-4 preseason, but they couldn't even get home on time.

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the team's charter plane backed into another plane on the runway in Dallas, and the Fins had to take another plane home.

"It rocked the entire plane," Dolphins broadcaster Joe Rose, who was on the plane, said on his WQAM radio show Thursday morning. "It was totally crazy. I just couldn't believe it."

Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore said on Twitter that the team didn't get back home until after 8 a.m. on Thursday.

We can't wait to see this on the season finale of "Hard Knocks." According to Rose, the NFL Films crew was on the plane and shot the entire debacle.

A few of the best Dolphins player tweets from's Gregg Rosenthal:

"There were no issues with anyone on board -- it just delayed our arrival back to Ft. Lauderdale by about two hours," a Dolphins spokesman said in an email.

Oh, and then, there's this. From poor Andy Kent, the Dolphins' Internet writer:

The Dolphins will have to head back to Texas in time for their regular-season opener against the Texans on Sept. 9. Think good thoughts, fellas ...
