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.

Another sack. Big play # 2 on the D side of the ball. Simms follows that up with a first down completion.

End of 3rd qtr. 7-6 Bucs. Who will be QB for Phins in 4th Qtr? We need to get in the red zone. Why are we saving up sex for our old age? Let's enjoy it now!! At least my beer is interesting tonite.

4th qtr, another 1st down throw by Simms. The D is awfully soft.

Time of possession is becoming a big advantage for TB.

Another completion for TB. It's looking easy for them.

No gain on the run. 3rd and 4.

the dolphins arent as attractive as she is at 50 thats for sure.

another 1st down throw, Yawn, gotta get another beer!

TB is in the red zone now...around teh 5. Dolphins looking like the 1-15 team of a year ago. Bring back Cam Cameron??

wrapping up should be automatic

If we hold them to a FG that would be huge!!

the tunna needs to get to the side lines and kick some ya know wat

Touchdown TB!! a running play(sweep)

Michael Bennett is not a 3rd string rb. He is much better than that

What D are you talking about the Vaunted likes Glymph, Ninkovich, Dotson, and Billinsgley? Its Preseason game 1!

were is jerry jones when you need him

Passing D is really looking bad. 27/39 for 189; almost 70% of completions.

14-6 TB. We are losing the time of possesion battle...what else is new? That is a sign of a bad team. Can't move the chains. Cant stop the other team's from moving the chains. Plus...no big plays. It's not looking good. Sparano is not passing his first exam with flying colors.


I wonder if there is a Pill for Knee Jerking Syndrome?

Yea I know it's preseason, but it's also preseason for TB. Hello!!!!

McCown in. Henne finishes 5 of 10 for 67 yards. No TDs, no INTs.

Hey Cam Cameron why all the hate on against the mormons? Did a missionary "covert" your momma?

bring out the pink pennies this week.

Mccown the clown is in? Here comes an INT!!!!!

we should be passing

JT not playing for skins tonight. if he was still a phin I sure we would only be down by 4 dammit!!

Davone Bess makes a catch.

Tampa played 3 qb with NFL experience, and their Starting Running Back til the 4th quarter!! Major Difference its the game 1 in the preseason!

Our McCown is in?

McCown has made a few completions.

Hits Bess again near the 1st down marker. Just short actually.

Anyone that comments on this game as if it is important is out of their mind. This is the first preseason game people. Not only that but believe it or not the Dolphins are rebuilding. We will be lucky to win 6 games this year so calm down and embrace mediocrity. We are at least a few years out here.

jim kick look alike

McCown is winning back his starting job; 100% completion percentage!!!

1st down run by Hilliard....negated by holding penalty on Murphy.

The penalties are troubling

where are the bags?

Incomplete pass. Just lost again his starting gig.

Dolphins punt! Still no QB has put us in teh end zone. Good return by TB. Here we go again. Poor coverage by Phins. We are not looking like a good cohesive football team.

oh well give tuna a couple yrs he will get some real animals on d

Are ginn or hagan still in the game?

Kevin you are right that it is preseason for both teams. The problem is that one of the teams won their division and the other only won 1 game.

TB has completed passes to 13 receivers! Man, I didn't even know you could have that many guys in a team.

HOw are the fins looking I am just having to read all ya lls post

the worse team ever in pro football, well not including that first tampa team.

Yea....maybe the bags will be coming out early this year. This team looks awful No big plays. The D looks soft. We cant even get a 1st down and we cant stop them on 3rd down. All bad signs. What's up Tony Sparano?

How is Solai doing? Are they running down his throat or is he stuffing the middle?

Give em hell in the press Armando. They deserve it.

wait for the first cuts, we get replacements.

I'm loving this blog nice work all. I'm from California and there is little to no coverage of the Dolphins on the west coast...Keep me posted lopezdolfan

How many of Henne's incompletes were drops? Anybody know?

Why are they bragging on Henne?We are losing and he has not put us in the red zone or the end zone. Please give me a break. No big plays from the offense. My god!

0-16 this year looks like bill parcells has failed us all... maybe they can all work together in baltimore

TB hits the FG....17-6 with 2:57 left.

Well, remember last year first two preseason games? Our 1st team D didn't allow any first downs in either game (or something close). Didn't exactly followed the trend in the regular season. Maybe this year it won't follow the trend either.

at least my beer is interesting, and getting more interesting by the swallow!

I Think you should get a job at the Herald Kevin P, you seem pretty good at bashing the dolphins way too early.

bring back Marino and duper.

I wish Ginn was returning kicks. This is stupid. He's not a good enough reciever to not be returning kicks. He's a great return man....but has a lot to prove as a reciever. We are a better team with him returning kicks and punts. That's one of the big reasons we drafted him....to shorten the field.

Bring Back George Wilson!

Well that didn't take long. All the retardisms are starting to come out from all the experts. GG! ....as I laugh to myself.

I wonder if the McCown brothers are going to go chainsawing after the game?

We need 2 units of blood STAT!!! The offense is anemic!!!
