Feely not playing tonight; other updated news

I'm at Dolphin Stadium, home of a team about to improve from last year's 1-15 record.

Just looking around and I am told that Jay Feely, who has been nursing a groin injury, will not kick tonight. Rookie Dan Carpenter will handle all the kicking duties.

The Miami Herald has reported that Josh McCown is not playing tonight while John Beck starts. Chad Henne is expected to play the second and fourth quarter in the report filed by beat writer Jeff Darlington.

Other lineup issues: Derek Hagan will start ahead of Ernest Wilford.

Donald Thomas will be the second Dolphins rookie offensive lineman to start. Rookie Kendall Langford will start at left defensive end for Matt Roth.

Matt Roth will start at strong side linebacker for Joey Porter. Phillip Merling will start at right defensive end for Vonnie Holliday.

Chad Pennington is at the stadium and has signed his contract. He is expected to be introduced, perhaps after the game.

Anyway check back often for updates. Understand that I am blogging and writing a column at the same time -- on deadline -- so I don't want to hear no $%#@&* if I'm not super fast with the updates. But I will do my best.

Meet me in the comments section at kickoff.

its got to be ricky right and ricky left.

MVP's of the 1st half, Ricky Williams and David Kirkus. That aint saying much. We gotta raise our standards. 2nd half is under way. Simms is the QB for TB.

1st Half Highlights: Found out that Henne will be the starter and Pennington will make a nice backup since Beck and Mcown are both terrible. I say let Henne take his lumps this year so he is seasoned for next year's run. There is absolutely no reason for Pennington to be a starter here.

good blitze their azzs.

OK Phins get ball back. 7-3 TB. Who will be the QB?

Ya let's run Ricky Williams left and right to win a preseason game and get him hurt before the reg-season... Pull him now and call it a day!!

didn't ricky average 6 yards a carry vs Tampa's 1st team D? Thats a good sign

Henne still in there

nice run by Cobbs negated by penalty

cobbs is mop up.

another dropped pass, this time by Wilford. 4th down.

wilford is gone

thanks to wilford um won the NC

Wilford is gonna get himself cut like this

Don't worry too much about the D. Besides the fact that there are some starters out of the lineup, they're probably playing pretty conservatively. Teams don't like to show much in pre-season on D and they also keep it a little more simple for the rookies.

So far the way this is looking Beck will be the odd man out. Pennington starts, Mccown is insurance due to experience and Henne is the future....

Bucs have ball again. Atleast my beer is interesting(Landshark Lager)

just worried about all the arm tackling.

Man Wilford is just awful. What is up with this kids head? He seems out of it.

Did they just want to get Henne a 2nd series, or did they switch the plan to alternate series between Beck and Henne?

OK, 3rd quarter, still no big plays from Phins on O or D. Not one!! Also, the D is playing sloppy. Time of possession is starting to fall heavily on the Bucs side. They are toying with our D. We are lucky it's only 7-3.

Wilford said after several drops in practice that he was a "game guy" and not a "practice guy". Guess he is really backing it up after two drops (was it three?).

where you at mando? bring in some news man!

the interior d is so mus hie.

This is a boring Dolphin's team. No big plays. At least my beer is interesting. Pennington is spending a lot of time with Beck on the sidelines.

man we need to take the ball from sims and run for d td.

OK, Dolphins get a sack. Big play number 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beck is a smart guy. He's probably trying to pick his brain

finally, yippee

Good call on the interesting beer... I made a halftime run to grab a 12 pack

Who got the sack?

long FG attempt by TB...52 yards, no good!!

we are not exactly a scoring machine.

Total Plays: TB 54, Miami JV Cowboys 27

Are we failing forward fast?? BTW did camoron end up anywhere?

Kevin, WE KNOW YOUR BEER IS INTERESTING!LOL. How many have you had because it seems like you've burned some brain cells. You've repeated yourself four times! :)

Dolphins are young and learning... Be patient !!
Enjoy the process and have another brew.

Guys, sorry to be in and out, but I'm juggling this and writing my column on deadline. Meanwhile Rod Wright looking good to me.

All right, I have heard all the hype on our QB's...but if they cannot get us in the end zone then what good is the hype. Let's see a Phin QB get us in the end zone, and let's see some recievers step up and make some big plays. We have good field position to start the drive. Parmele in this drive.

See, winning one game with this team isn't easy.

Penalty on the offense...backed up 5 yards. Parmele had a good run on 1st down.

Penalties: TB 0/0, JV Cowboys 5/30

Drew--Cam is with the only team that managed the clock worse than him last year, Baltimore

Henne sacked!

Cam is in B-more with the Raven, I wish he would have taken the Ginn family with him!

we are not exactly a scoring machine.

By the way: My first half highlights?

Chad Henne is clearly a better QB right now than John Beck. Not becuase he is moving the ball better or completing passes, but because he doesn't look overmatched. He steps up in the pocket with confidence. He doesn't dance around. He's just smoother.

Big throw Henne, 1st down!!!!!!!!

our third string is better than your third string our third string is better than yours our third sting is better cause we eat kennel ration. Our third sting is better than yours.

Henne has the confidence because he has a big arm. He has teh poise because he played in front of 100k fans at Michigan.

Look, you have to realize that Beck was drafted because of his missionary experience. He wasn't drafted to actually play football. The thinking was that he'd be really good at travelling around the world and converting people to become Dolphins fans.

Carpenter hits 49 FG and somehow Jay Feely has to be wondering where he's going to be playing this year...

I think Feely is sweatin!

Carpenter scores another FG. 7-6 TB. Feely is getting nervous??

This kid Carpenter is good. What can you get in a trade for a good kicker?

if you want play-by-play updates, check this out:


We havent talked kick coverage. Thats looking much better so far

Ted Ginn has been awfully quiet. At least they should let him return punts and kicks.

Looks like the coaches like Camarillo alot. He's been in there quite a bit.

Henne is the real deal. This means that Beck has completely lost his 'QB of the future' title.

you guys are a fun read, especially the pennington beck conversation at the half "buised my vagine" LOF'inL

Thanks for the camoron update pound.

a floater down the middle
