« Is Parcells one and done in Miami? [Updated] | Main | Dolphins, Jets knotted at 0-0 to start 2nd quarter »

Live blog of Dolphins vs. Jets today (with chat)

Well, I'm in place and ready to go although the game doesn't start for another 90 minutes or so.

Here's what's happening:

1. If you didn't catch the latest update on my last post, the agent for Bill Parcells, Jimmy Sexton, is at today's game here. So it is not beyond the realm of possibility that he and new owner Stephen Ross discuss The Big Tuna's future as early as sometime today.

2. Channing Crowder is indeed playing. But he realizes this could be his final game with Miami. After he warmed up and was coming back into the tunnel, Crowder bumped into an old friend and as he passed the Jets locker room. He was heard talking about possibly becoming a free agent and then yelled into the locker room, "Any money for an inside linebacker in there?"

3. It is already getting dark here and there is a considerable wind. I have a strong belief that Davone Bess will be a major factor in Miami's game plan today. Look for him because I believe Chad Pennington will be.

Anyway, I'll update you with the inactives as they come. The live blog starts here at kickoff. But I'm here so if you have questions, comments, whatever, come with it in the comments section.

How bad is the wind up there today? Anything like in Buffalo?

It is nothing like Buffalo. It is windy but not 60 mph. More like 20 mph and there is a slight drizzle in the air.

Ernest Wilford is inactive today. More to come.

MANDO

hey how long is bess going to be with the team any clue

NASN, the European ESPN, is showing the game live today. I cant begin to express the joy and love in my heart.....Lets go Phins, DESTROY THOSE MOTHER****ERS!!!!!!

Mando

what color are the fish wearing today uniform wise?

How does this defense expect to handle the Jets after giving up 492 yards to the Chiefs? They have been nonexistant. I know the Jets are going to get it rolling and pi**es me off. Today, we get exposed for not having enough playmakers on defense which should be our focus this offseason.

The other inactives are William Kershaw, Shawn Murphy, Lionel Dotson, Quentin Moses, Nate Garner and Rod Wright with John Beck as the No. 3 QB.

Brees has 186yds midway through the 3rd. The Saints are at 80% pass plays - looks like they are dead-set on giving him every chance to break the Mans record. Go Carolina, Drew is good, but a good 2 classes below Marino.

Roman: White top, aqua pants.

Glad to see Crowder acting like Manny Ramirez prior to the biggest game of his career. He is the best we have, but when was the last time he ever made a big play? Let alone multiple big plays?

Jimmy, I'm pretty sure he signed a two-year deal as an undrafted free agent. And they pretty much can keep him through his fourth season by continuing to tender him contracts.

Crowder worrying about his contract is why he has to go. Of all days, today you worry about making the playoffs. Also who leaked the Parcells story today ? Whoever it is should be fired, especially if it's Parcells himself, that'd be selfish and stupid, worse then Crowder being a idiot and talking money.

lets go fins. what a great season. thanks for all the great info all season Armando. i forgot until this year how fun football season could be.

Gonna be pumping James Brown's song "The Big Payback" before the game to get the vibe going. Let's do it Chad & co & shock the world & win the AFC East. LETS GO FINS!!!!!!

Hey Mando...Kerry Rhodes gets to match up with your boy Bell. I think you said Bell was better. We will see today.

Thanks i am placing the order for a #15 white today

Mando, looks like NE will beat BUF, with the game going final before the MIA-NYJ kickoff. Can you do some psy-ops and get the word out to the NYJ that they have almost no chance of making the playoffs today?

What about Will Allen ? How'd he look in warm ups ?

crowder is a punk! get rid of him already. draft an ILB one of the first 3 picks.

Go PHINS!! The Phins are finishing games this year. It may be ugly at times, but unlike years past, they're finishing games and they will finish the Jets today. It may be close but we will prevail! Go Chad...

Bummer on Kershaw being inactive, he was a good special teamer. Miami had to have the new guy active since Crowder and his gimpy knee's are a worry. Hurry pay mr gimp and thank him for costing Miami a good special teamer today !

This is the most excited I've been for a game in a long time. Since the 2002 final game against the Patriots that shook my football spirit. Of course I have faithfully watched the games and played Fantasy Football, but this is what it's all about. The final game of the year, a chance to win the division and go to the playoffs. No help necessary. It feels good to be here, let's keep playing, it's kinda fun!

Think about it. Last year at this time if someone had told me that i would be cheering for Pennington to beat Farve, and the dolphins make the playoffs if it happens. I would say thats the dumbest thing i have ever heard and here we are what a difference a year makes!
F-I-N-S FINS FINS FINS

We have to put heat on Favre 2 day. The last 2 games, we had to deal w/mobile QB's in Thigpen & Hill. Make his arm long even older & send him off doing more Wrangler commercials

MANDO,
THANKS FOR THE UPDATE BUT CAN WE ONLY REPORT POSITIVE DOLFIN NEWS. I REALLY COULD CARE LESS WHAT SEXTON AND ROSS TALK ABOUT TODAY. I COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THE HEAR SAY OF SOMEONE THAT THINKS THEY KNOW CHANNING CROWDER. COMON MAN!! DOLFANS WE GOTTA KEEP OUR HEADS IN THE GAME. TRUST THAT COACHES PUT THE BEST PLAYERS ON THE FIELD AND LETS GO FROM THERE.

LETS GO DOLPHINS!

Parcells probably wants to get out of AFC East because he has done squat without Bellecheat.

If the Jets win today, Bellecheat beats him again.

Looks like Bellecheat is the master.

Anything on Will Allen?...Its been a great year,lets go out there and kick some Jet butt.11-5 would be a beautiful thing.

Some responses: Kerry Rhodes will not go up against yeremiah Bell today, Hayden. Come on, man! You're better than that.

Tony, I am looking at the scoreboard and the NE-Buffalo game IS NOT up there. They are not updating that game. Can you believe it?

Send crowder to detriot, what a moron,idiot,fool,dumb@ss,fecal matter,the sweat on my taint. does that about cover it?

Good to see you here Hayden. These bums after last week have set these boneheads up for a thrilling Heartbreak. These dolphins are pretenders. The Glory Days of the Great Dan the Man Marino are gone. This crew doesn't have what it takes. A nothing team pushed them around last week and that wasn't even their best effort. The Jets will beat them down and then we will have to watch another superbowl run by the patriots. That sucks more than anything.

did anybody just hear dan dierdorf shooting a load over matt cassell's pouch kick calling belicheat a little devil?

Looks like the nfl is going to get there dream team into the playoffs with a phin loss.

t.t.c. dont buy the hype man. we didnt hear him say it and we dont even know who heard it man. lets just stay focused! LETS GO PHINS!

Looking at Allen warming up. He looks fine.

GO DOLPHINS, LETS SHOCK THE NFL AND WIN THE EAST, SAY GOODBY TO NEW ENGLAND AND THE JETS

NE is going to win easily.

Just broke out the Dolphin fireman's helemt.

Am I the only one that thinks not putting the Patriots score on the scoreboard is lame?

I'd prefer the score not be up the Dolphins need to be totally locked in and ready to go.

Nick, I just started putting out the blankets/hats/jerseys....etc also!

Lets go phins!

I heard Dierdorf too. It is too much isn't it?

I'd prefer the score not be up the Dolphins need to be totally locked in and ready to go.

Nick, I just started putting out the blankets/hats/jerseys....etc also!

Lets go phins!

Mando if they put the patriots score up then the dolphins will be heartbroken because they would know their chances of a wildcard are gone and that they don't have what it takes to get in the real man's way.

Im out in Los Angeles and am so pumped for this game...We need to be able to RUN the BALL today..lets go Ronnie, Ricky and POLITE!!!

mando there's 2:45 sec left and its only 3:35 believe you/me the will know the score before gametime

Mondo
will the wind be a factor (significant)?

Go Phins, I think dierdorff will be stalking cassel next year to shower him with his man love, now that brady announced his engagement to that umba hot chick.

the wind is swirling and it is not a factor now. The fourth quarter? Who knows.

Mando what is the weather like? Temp wise?

hey hayden you had to be on the floor laughing when you heard dierdorf calling bellicheat "that little devil"

Despite losing 8 of 9 & 17 of last 21 vs the Jets, this could be the sweetest victory against them since the AJ Duhe game in '83. LETS DO IT FINS!!!!

Mondo
If the Phins win the opening coin toss, will they defer? I think getting the ball first n the 2nd half is always an advantage. Put D on opening KO and control the game, stun them first

dolphanforlife: Even if the Pats win and Baltimore loses and the Dolphins tie, the Dolphins and Pats are in the playoffs.

Brady Sleeps With The Gods.

Armando, I dressed my color cutout of you in complete homer attire today: Mark Duper jersey and a Shula Steakhouse cap.

I'm sweating. The temperature is not a factor.

Honestly Crowder lacks the intensity to lead the defense once Joey Porter retires. Could you here Zach Thomas or Ray Lewis making comments like that pre-game to the biggest game of his career?

I've put the dogs in the other room so I don't yell at innocent animals.

Wishful thinking Mando but good to keep hope alive.

Mondo
With Ray Lewis being a FA do you think Parcells will pursue him

Paul...doesn't someone at CBS tell him to chill out? It is amazing.
