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.

Bess is player of game so far for us.

I agree Jc

Pass behind Bess but he adjusts nicely for the catch and the first down.

The offense will open up as we calm down..we are bigger and stronger...also Vernon Carey is where he should be on the O line...the heat will have an affect you will see...plus this Dolphin squad will adapt in the second half..Bess looks good and athletic...caught from Brennan so he used to playing the game and running the routes...go fins!

Postive yardage!!!lets go dolphins, all you guys have patience

Yeah Jc I am sure you said that all 16 games last year too. The NFL is about results and the fins are showing to be absolutely no better than last year so far.

I do think we should have kept Booker..but he plays with MCNAbb now so he is not complaining I am sure...This will be an NFL season like college football was last year...you watch...

Just saw Brady walk to the locker room.
Not career ending.....damn it!

At least no fin has gotten hurt yet.

These guys are getting paid millions of dollars and take the same steroids. I don't care who is on the other team, win or get fired

Actually, I did not...I saw nothing last year from the get go ....Cam was another Saban just a little happier...I have never been happy since JJ was put in charge..he changed the demeanor of the whole program ....say what you want he never won anything and strapped us into this whole JJ plan...NOw, with a real man like Parcells in charge it is not about mind games but about playing the game...The worse things about this team is post Shula...

Nice hole

Interesting how at Kansas City an injured player has to walk down a set of stairs...lol

Ricky & Ronnie can only save sad Chad

Smiley has got blood all over his pant leg. Hope its not his.

no more negative folks during the first game
leave and yell at your dog
oh another nice play where is some positivity.

Is that 24 yard catch David Martin's best play in two seasons?

Oh, and NOW is when the HEAT becomes a factor...

Martin caught a pass. Breaks his record from last year by 1

keeep it going dolphins

Parcells is to the force what JJ and Darth is to the dark side

You and I are always on the same wavelength Armando.

Dumb play

I hate empty backfields, especially on first or second down. it tells the D what you're going to do.

Tom Brady left the game injured!

Yeah Baby!!!!!!!!!!!


Excellent, excellent protection on that TD

Well, that was exactly what the doctor ordered.

Told y'all to calm down; it's a 60 minute game, fer crissaskes!

I think that drive was set-up by tough running from Williams and Brown.

It's On!

touchdown dolphins!!!, this is what im talking about....lets go fins

How about Miami beat reporters who actually likes the team...

Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins
Miami Dolphins

I guess we still stuck on a nice drive like that
All Parcells guys practically making the plays
I miss Zach and Taylor..I love them
This is a new day folks

Oh I need another drink now.

Defense should be well rested.

Its looking like a game now

Pennington has six completions to six different receivers.

How's that for turnaround? Our punter gives them an opportunity for 3 points, their kicker gives it back, and we have a nice long drive in the rising heat for a TD.

Can we keep it up?

Hmmmmm.....lets see positive postings and a td
keep it up
this is a new day determined to
restore our legacy that we had pre-JJ

Okay now lets turn up the heat on Favre

Good god.

Kicked the ball out of bounds. How stupid.


we want feely

Our kickers need an ass kicking!

So far, same dolphins. Just good enough to give you hope and then rip your heart out.


Feely's cackling his ass off. Nice going, braintrust.
Parcells has accomplished the impossible - we're worse than last year.

I thought the Fins had really worked on the special teams. THe kicking game is awful right now. But BP saved a ton of money on his car insurance by cutting Feeley.

great kicking game!!!!!

Jay Feely to the white courtesy phone.

NOW, the D brings some HEAT of their own...

What ever happen to just kicking it into the endzone......

WOW dan carpenter has kicked it out of bounds equally as much as he has kicked it into the endzone, since hes beenw with us

The fins are like that stripper at the club. Teasing me, teasing me, only to leave me alone with a bad case of blue balls

Olindo Mare, where are you.

shut the f up you negative folks
i do not think you are real fans
i feel an interception or funble
Favre is always good for a brainfreeze play
here no postings if you are mean and then nice
pick a side and stay on it

Going over to Miami in October for game lads and Lasses which one would be best to go to in your opinion?

Said 10-6 on Arlingtons blog Questions/Answers a while back and we did a bet For a GUINESS if we were 4-2.

He is suddenly very quiet LOL...

Lovely. Any opinions on whether we should have gotten Ryan over Long???? Atlanta 21-0 up.

Good teams don't give up points when their offense ties the game. Let's see what happens.

Where is all the beef we bought in the draft on this run D
