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.

you guys sound more like jets fans than dolphins fans. yeah we should have signed pace. we have a lot of money to spend

Isn't Sparano's forte supposed to be the offensive line? Sure shows, doesn't it? Garbage. Sparano makes his predecessors look like Lombardi, Halas and Shula.

who is this ginn guy?

mccain makes a good fullback, we can get palin as a coach

I still got confidence in this regime...we

will get it turn around.

gotta go for it on fourth

Finally, some separation!

Why the 5 yard pass with 6 minutes left down by 2 scores?

i like girls

Nice drive so far...If only we scored last time...

same old, cant stop anybody on 3rd or 4th down . O-line cannot creat any daylight. Receivers cannot get open. Fasano should get wilford's game check.

nice touch, chad

Guess this will end up like 15 others last year, I will return and hope that next week the fins have made the right corrections.

phil simms is killing me

Pennington has to make that throw!

like i said we don't have a TE issue


i think obama is good at speeches where mccain is good at melanoma


Big whoop. Stat-padder and nothing more. Jets will run the kickoff back for a touchdown, or maybe this idiot Chandler will onsides-kick to the wrong side and that'll be brought back as well. 0-16.

just like last year... backdoor cover.

Come on defense!

NICE TD pass to Martin! I believe that's 1 more than he had all last year!


im a dolphin fan win or lose....some of u need to seriously think about going to other teams...we real fans wont miss u

If we could only get that favre prayer back!

line up rb and tight ends and chad will never throw an incompletion again.

obama scores, yes, we can change

now its turnover time people

"Guess this will end up like 15 others last year, I will return and hope that next week the fins have made the right corrections."

Now that is the funniest thing I've read all day!

Maybe by the year 2048 we'll have figured it out.

for all the whining, we could be primed for a comeback if we can make a stop

Those time outs would sure come in handy right now...


Too little, too late. As usual though, we look good in garbage time when the other team is playin off our guys by 10 yards!

pick six time for farve!


Sounds like all five thousand fans in the stadium are going nuts...

It's over.

bret favres testicles smell, its just came in, breaking news

Nobody is being negative just realistic so stop all the crap talk about being negative. I've been a fan myself since 1983 I have every reason to believe if we are good enough and we are.

We can get to playoffs with some luck and belief.

However if people are negative they are entitled to be if they buy jerseys and go to games.

Huard couldn't get it done on the NE 5 AHHHHHHHH 3 passes and out. Great try because they had no confidence against us. I hope the 2 pointer and arrogance of Farve comes back to haunt them. Was it Farve or the coaching staff who made the 2 point call?

here we go 3rd down. Mando should they have caller time out before 2minute warning?

why didnt we onside kick it. wtf

Favre picks up the 1st Down and I can see Boomer, TJ, Costas and Olbermann waxing poetic tonight. Sticks out loud.

Breaking.....play fake, long pass coming up

In fact, it was over two months ago.

Who ever said that we sound like NY fans, ohhh you got it all wrong. We are fins fans, but just a bit tired of losing.

Early prediction next week - Arizona 42, Miami 0.

blog without the blogger

Why does Sparano have a pull over on....

is he cold? WOW

why dont i change things up and critic u losers that wasquerade as dolpfans......my first observation is that u suck

Thank the football gods for TEs!

Fans need to vent...And boy will they ever vent after the next play!

yeah arent we all tired of losing though. no positives from anyone though

i'll answer my own ? yes should hvae called a t.o

zorn would out coach sparano.

there is still hope! flase start

come on defense, we can beat iraq, just surge, surge

I don't think it is over yet.
