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.

Let's face it...Farve is unreal.

most impt series in yrs; if we go 3 & out, we're doomed; if we score, we can hang in

this team has made more mistakes in this game than most teams make in half a season

is everyone gonna freak out every time the other team scores this season?? like seriously ive never seen fans go back and forth so much. just relax its the first half of the first game.

2 straight runs-ugh

We are done

A real organization would've cut Starks and Hill on the spot. I take that back - a real organization never would've signed bums like that in the first place. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16.

Well it only proves one thing he was talking about our secondary and trying to give them confidence.

It is the worst part of our team and they have been rebuilding it for years now.

With this secondary we can not beat teams with WR taller than 5' 2"...........

Time for Ricky to Step up and get some confidence. Our OL is new but we need to keep the ball low and tire their big defence....


We get the break of the kicker we cannot take advantage. Miami sucks. Why do I cheer for them.

F@#$ the Dolphins and Sparano. I'm gone

Run, run, pass

Hill blew the coverage on that TD.

On the bright side, Jake Long has done pretty well also

Chad call a time out when they show a blitz like that..

i cannot believe all of you.... you all throw in the towel cause the jets scored?? this is pathetic from our fan base... it disgusts me you all are freaking out over every play

Nice play by Holliday.

A Holliday sighting! They've been running his way today

How's that for insight, by the way?

Everyone says it is only the first game but unfortunately our best shots to win are the early games...Before injuries set in and lack of depth is seriously exposed...

i'm freakin big time; woe is us

They sure keep running right.

Wow? Joey who?

I see ya Joey

J-E-T-S offense is going to get tired from running on and off the field....

Joey Porter has his first sack of the season. He got his first sack of 2007 on October 21.

Farve is so smart with the ball

Joey Porter....hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
who said he was done......
like i said before the fluke throw and td
the defensive line is getting to Brett Farve
Now, we see the two minute drill
I vote for a throw to the TE on a streak

nice job by the ginn & family.

That touchdown was hill's fault hedidn't stay in coverage he suckc FIRE HIM

OK, its henning time.

Run, run, run.

Please mix it up Dan. Please.

ginn & fambly--gracias

Pennington now sacked on consecutive plays.




Would you leave Ginn alone for something the coach said...good god people he never said anything to deserve such classless comments...heck I hate Ohio State, but still Ginn is a Fin and has been a model citizen..what could any rookie do on a 1 -15 team?

we're cooked

We are at the 2 minute mark. and Jets backup QB Kellen Clemens is practicing kicks.

Who allowed that last sack, or was it coverage from an LB or DB?

0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16. 0-16.

Time to reminisce 'bout the preseason; highwater mark of 2008 fins.

JC how do you type with two pom poms in your hand? Just kidding...

CAN PEOPLE IN FLORIDA REALLY BE THIS IGNORANT! I'm from wisconsin and have been a dolphin fan all my life. Good god i hate dolphins fans. Sorry, i apologize to all of you that can actually think...

Where is Gin? Trade that piece of $hit! Bess is twice the reciever he is. Offensive line sucks, not one hole yet.

My god, what is Pennington waiting on?

OK, so the Dolphins have three receivers in on third down and none got open.

Recivers are not open

chad looking scared. We need a pick 6 here!

we need a turnover

what happened to Bess hasnt been in since the td drive

FU chase you just can't see the writing on the wall thesy suck! Watch the Jets drivr it down with 1:42 left in the half!

Good D line play

Atlanta looks like they're gonna win the SB, while we look like we'll be lucky to win 3 games....

Fins get ready to use time outs. Stop em on third.

that was a little sad, but I think right now we are in good shape...our D line is getting in there...we know our rec. leave a lot to be desired...they will improve...play calling needs to be a little creative..see what I said about the D line

it is hard to type with the pom poms nice line by the way...:)

Still wasted too much time.

the D looks fired up and strong...more importantly quick to respond...one touchdown off blown coverage and another by a fluke pass...lets not get down too much on the D...the Offense needs to stay on the field and do something...

not impressed with clock management...wasted 30 seconds...We are a young team and we need to play more agressive...

heading out to brideshead revisited - a chic flic'll beat this crap.
