Live blog from The New Beginning [update]

It is a New Beginning!

At least that is what the billboards next to South Florida Highways keep insisting. We shall see today.

I'm sure you are all excited the Dolphins' regular season opener against the New York Jets is finally here. I know I am. The Dolphins are also. I got a call from one very excited Dolphins player very early this morning. Yeah, he noticed I picked the other team to win in the paper today.

He was awake and itching to get going but couldn't find anything to do so he started calling people to get them going. Not the kind of wake up call I expected today but that's fine.

I sat down one-on-one and did a question and answer column with Dolphins coach Tony Sparano for today's Miami Herald. It is a must read before today's game.

You'll get the answer to what he's thinking today, what he's most confident in and what worries him the most about his team. He also discusses his approach for reaching players.

The live blog will begin in the comments section at the start of the game so join me there.

Yeah!!!!! Fired up!!!!

UPDATE: WR Ernest Wilford, who got $6 million guaranteed money this offseason, is inactive today. Yikes. So much for recent improvement that coach Tony Sparano reported. But if you read that Q&A you'll understand why the coach doesn't call out players.

Cornerback Michael Lehan and rookie Shawn Murphy are also inactive.

dink and dunk time

we need a TD here!

Big gain by Fasano!!! And one!!!!!!!!

i seriously question this regimes ability to evaluate actual talent when they start Ricky( i love to get high and ruin my career) Williams over Ronnie Brown, who led the league in yards from scrimmage into week 7 last year on an absolutely terrible team

Every year its be patient. F@#$ patience. I want to win NOW! I am tired of cheering for a loosing team. They get paid good money to win games period. Win F@#$%^&*^ games.

Nice blitz pickp...

Jake Long--drive killer--nice

nice no one picked up the blitz...

The Dolphins have brought a popgun offense to a firefight.

Another wasted time out

Was it a tight end or Jake Long that let Pace in on that sack?

I wonder how many other 1st round picks from this year are doing better than Jake Long?

I am burning the whole stadium down tonight. A new beginning my butt. Lets really start from scratch

The OL looks confused more than lacking in talent = young and not very well-coached

Trent Edwards who Camoron & Co. passed on looking like franchise QB crusing SEA.

Either way..Left side of the O-line was supposed to be a lock

Even if you do burn the stadium down, ticket prices will still go up...

our TE position has been the bright spot today

Fasano was a solid pick up...

WOW why is ricky back in??????

WR's cant get open again!

pete the freaking season just started and u are wondering what rookies are doing better, get a life

Boy Pennington really locked on his receiver...Turnover on downs...

Terrible playcalling the inside the 5

Lets get a new coach too, this play calling is just as unimaginable as last year and I for one am tired of it.

looks like this one is over. We got AZ next week lets see what happens...

WOW...Chad was locked on the receiver on that 4th and goal...

Wow...zero rushes on this last series, and two pass plays from the 3 yard line...

what kinda pass was it on fourth. like was it close. whose fault was it

We would never draft a guy like Lowery. He's actually good. We'll draft bums like Ginn and Jake Long and Lex Luthor or whoever that bum RB from Montana who was cut is named.
Absoulely inexcusable. Anyone - and I mean ANYONE - who can rationalize this garbage by saying it's the first game for a bunch of young players and a rookie coach is either a Pollyanna idiot, on the Parsmells' payroll, or both.

The Dolphins were put on earth for the world to laugh at.

Is that the best you can call on 4th down Henning?

It wouldn't matter if we had Randy Moss. Our Quaterback cant throw to recievers. Only tight ends and backs

The sad thing about this game, is that we have had so many chances...

Gonna be a long long year--Bess & Camar--2 street agents, & thass the best we can do? Ugh! Ginn is Teh Sux.

Its going to be another long and dreadful year.

conclusion, petes a moron who probably expected a super bowl this year

like i said before when you go from pennington to favre you get added benefits. one gets pass interference calls the other doesn't.

Gents, I hate to break it to you, but this is going to be a long season...

Why are we trusting him to throw a TD with Williams standing there?

We will improve.

We need Heene to start. If Flacco and Ryan are good enough to why not Henne what's your opinion Armando?

the more things change the more they remain the same....the fins are living proof of that adage!!!!

Now I have an issues with the playcalling in the last series:
why throw it to a rookie on 3rd down
why not try to run it in on one of those downs instead of 3 pass plays???!!! Grr...
But again, this is what one expects from a 1-15 team.....:(

On that last possession, the Dolphins have two plays from the 2 yard line.. And neither Ronnie nor Ricky touch the ball.

A turnover please somebody make a play

Time to give Henne some garbage time...

Apart from one sack by Langford, our drafted rookies have not done squat. Bring back Wannstache and Spielman. Bring back Cammstedt and Mueller. Hell, bring back Roger Pedacter from "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective". Bill Parcells is old, over the hill and senile. No good will come from this.

Porter getting stood up at the line just like last year. WR's and DB's still Suck. Merling has been found.

way to go Merling

Ginn blows

you guys are so harsh in our first game of the year. how much did you expect? we were 1-15 last year. there is a lot of fixing to do. give them a break. yeah we have had a lot of mistakes but just shut up already

A Merling sighting!

Ted Ginn, allergic to pigskin. Put Bess back there; at least that kid had a pair of testicles. Ginn is to the Dolphins as Lance Leggett was to the Hurricanes.

Fasano is seeing so much action because he's getting open...our wide receivers can't break free or find the soft spots in coverage...it's not that Pennington can only throw to TEs or RBs...it's ignorance like that that's frustrating to hear from negative fans

damn i do love our young D-LINE though...

obama looks good in the backfield

Ginn has to be the biggest dissapointment today

How many sacks is that?

why r u fans of this team .....please go away u frikkin losers

Panic, piss poor play, sucl suck suck

Final question for anyone who can tell me how far we are under the cap?

Calvin Pace
Zach Thomas

About/Approx 27 Million Dollars

Tobor Suberbowl Ring 2 plays
Crowder Can't stop Pass
CB's non existant
Bell Defending as much as possible Crocker????
