Live blog of HUGE Miami Dolphins game today

Did you wake up this morning feeling like it's Christmas? I did. I was actually excited about covering today's game and I've covered perhaps 300 NFL games and 18 Super Bowls in my career.

Today is about making a statement for the Miami Dolphins.

If the Dolphins beat the New England Patriots, we will know that we know that we know that they are for real, that they won't go away the rest of the season, that what we saw during the four-game winning streak was not a mirage.

If the Dolphins lose to New England today we will once again be focusing on a yeah-but team. They won four consecutive games before today, yeah, but they barely got by terrible Oakland and Seattle teams. They got to these heights of relevance, yeah, but they fell back to the pack of teams likely not getting in the playoffs.

So today is, well, HUGE!

Expect a huge crowd today. The traffic around the stadium is already buzzing when normally it is dead this time of day. I will be blogging live starting at kickoff. Join me in the comments section and we'll watch what happens together.

Do you think it will be a sellout crowd today? Can't wait for the Phins to prove we are THE threat in NFL to all the doubters and sports "experts" and analysts that have been on the phin haters bandwagon for years.
Beat up on those Patsies. GO phins!

Go Phins!!!

bring out the broom for the patsies!!!

phins win today, and we will OFFICIALLY be world recognized as a "Good Team!!" and how long has it been since we were one of those?!?

Go Phins!

Go Mondo!

Jesus Christ, I'm FREAKING nervous... I have NO idea which Dolphin team is going to show up! All I know is that our post-season dreams hang on today's results. If Tennessee hangs on and we somehow beat the Pats, we will have an EXCELLENT chance of keeping up with the Jets throughout the season! GO PHINS!!!!!

is Barry Jackson still with the paper?

All of you living an alternative lifestyle please keep it to yourselves today.
Football is a game of men, by men and for men!

"Did you wake up this morning feeling like it's Christmas?"

Mando, whick jersey do I wear today Ricky or Ronnie?

from the sound of it you are the only one concerned about other men. you must really be into H0mos to be so worried about it everyday did your dad's friends stick it to you as a kid or something. Master is stuck in the closet

You can get live updates of the score by texting the word "fins" to the number 53318. Its pretty cool, give it a try!

Mando - any word on inactives yet? Let me guess on name - Wilford?

Yes, Christmas has come early. I will soon find out if I got that Mustang I've been dreaming of or just more tube socks.

I've been reading this blog for a bit now and Master's comments are by far the most ridiculous and stupid posts on this blog. seems to me he is a liar and a Giant Tool. prolly a Jet fan... But I do get a laugh once in a while so keep smokin' whatever it is that makes you write that nonsense

Inactive players for the Patriots:


CB Jason Webster

OT Wesley Britt

OL Billy Yates

TE Tyson DeVree

RB LaMont Jordan

CB Mike Richardson

LB Adalius Thomas

Matt Gutierrez – 3rd quarterback


Inactive players for the Dolphins:

G Shawn Murphy

DE Lionel Dotson

T Nate Garner

TE Joey Haynos

DE Rodrique Wright

John Beck – 3rd quarterback

Chris Berman is such a homer to those who he likes in the league. It is so bogus. I am not sure if he likes the Pats or Andy Reid the best.

The Beef Sez:MANDO WHY U PICKING DA FISH,ULL JINX THEM.

Hate to put a damper on your party Armando but the Fins may also lose this game. I'm going to root HARD for the Fins to prevail but I'm also going to have realistic expectations about this game as well.

GO FINS!

Just wanted to drop a line from NC GO PHINS!!!!!!!!!! RONNIE IS GOING TO MAKE THE FIRST GAME LOOK LIKE HE WAS HURT CUZ HE WILL GO FOR 4 SCORES AND 200 YARDS TODAY........STAMP IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BLEEP THE BLEEPIN PATSIES

Regardless of today, there is a lot of season left and opportunities.

Beef Sez:JOEY PORTER GOING GANGSTER ON ESPN BOUT BELACHEAT,TESTIFY J.P. U MY DOG.

Win or lose it's great to have a game mean something the weekend before Thanksgiving. I think the last big game we've had at home was the Oakland game 6 years ago. If you would have told me last year at this time (when the Fins were 0-10 and the Pats were 10-0) that Miami was actually favored playing against them I would have thought you were smoking something. What a great job by Sparano and co! Let's go Fins and show Bill The Cheater who the new genius coach is!

Beef Sez:FINS WILL BRING A GAME,THERE PLAYING A GOOD TEAM THAT CHEATS.

I see Ronnie Brown having another career day. if they play 8 in the box Pennington will Burn em bad. Bellicheat knows this and won't let us beat them in the air. I wanna see the Wildcat being shoved down this coaches throat today. If we have success again against them with it Teams will really be scared of Sparano and the phins

Alright. This is what we've been waiting for. HUGE game for this franchise. Lets gov fins...make us prouder!

The Beef Asks:WHAT WILL TED(HANDS OF STONE)GINNS STATS BE TODAY?

I cant explain how amped up I am for this game. Win or Lose I still love these dolphins, I just want us to go down fighting today...Defense wins championship, and I want our defense to set the tone for the day...Lets go Mr. Porter just do what you been doing all year.. Chad Pennington manage the game, Ronnie Brown blast for 200 yards... Everyone else play your ass off. Lets go Fins!!!!

Beef Sez:MASTERS IS A TOOL AND I SAW HIM DOWN HERE IN DA GETTO LAST NITE DRESSED AS A CHICKEN HEAD,AS A MATER OF FACT HIS STREET NAME IS PRINCESS.

Beef Sez:U CAN CHECK IT OUT URSELF AT U TUBE AT [email protected]

man this is fun. excited about a big game

For the first time a long time I have the pre-game jitters.

Beef Sez:U CAN CHECK IT OUT URSELF AT U TUBE AT [email protected]

Beef Sez:YO NYFINFAN U NEED TO GET A SHOT OF PENNICELLIAN THAT WILL CLEAR UP UR JETTERS,P.S. KEEP AWAY FROM PRINCESS U WONT GET THE JETTERS.

have we won in the aqua unis' yet?

what color we wearin' today?

Please don't tell me the short kickoff is the special teams friggin plan today

Ummmm...What was that? White flag on kicks.

Great field position for NE to start the game

If we're gonna pooch it, might as well just kick it out of bounds

come on D shut them down

Take the ball away...

Godo start for the Patriots. And they're throwing on every down.

almost intercepted

Decent pressure so far.

Come on Coach P, get the right personell out there.

Even if we stop them, you know they'll go for it on 4th and short. Bad TO by Sparano

Where's Mando, finishing off a hot dog?

need a sack here

I think carpenter said best last week....it's all about hang time and the kickoff didn't hang there for long.

So the Patriots have completed five consecutive passes for a total of 58 yards so far.

Beef Sez:STILL ABOUT 20 THOUSAND SEATS EMPTY THE BEEFSTERS LOOKING TO UPGRADE.

pooch kick = loser's mentality; all else flows therefrom.

Draw

I wasn't finishing off a hot dog, although that's a good idea. I was finishing off my radio show.

pressure!!!!

the Dolphins blitz on third down, bring Bell from strong safety, and that caused the Pats problems.

am shocked they didnt go for it on 4th down
