Dolphins 2009 regular-season schedule unveiled

The Dolphins will open defense of their AFC East division title on Sunday Sept. 13 against the Atlanta Falcons according to the NFL schedule released by the NFL moments ago.

The Dolphins schedule, the hardest in all the NFL according to 2008 records, will hit prime time the second week of the season when the Dolphins host the Colts at Dolphin Stadium on Monday Sept. 21 in their first prime time game since 2007.

That game will require the Florida Marlins to move their previously scheduled game against Philadelphia to be moved to July.

The Dolphins are scheduled for four prime time games. They also play the New York Jets Oct. 12 on ESPN, the Carolina Panthers Nov. 19 on NFL Network and the New England Patriots Dec. 6 in Miami on NBC.

The NFL schedule-making computer has been quite kind to the Dolphins as they play three games at home the first five weeks of the season, while the temperatures and humidity in Miami will still be quite high. Meanwhile, the Dolphins don't have a horrible cold weather game to speak of, barring a storm of some kind.

The team finishes the season with consecutive home games and the three December games prior to that will come at balmy Jacksonville, at home against New England and in Nashville against Tennessee where it might be cold, but it won't be anything like Buffalo.

The schedule:

oh , well safely you are far away. dophins rule oh yea f jim kelly

Jacksin,you can find bad seats in giants stadium for 40 bucs and you will be sitting righ behind a big wall and you will never see any thing.it doesn't make a different in your case any way

Jaksin. Who's safley far away ?

gopats,

i only have 2 channels, those being Fox (bucs) and NBC so as u can see there is some difficulty watching the mighty dolphins

NJ,

i've been saying we'll go 9-7 for weeks and i'm glad to finally see someone agree with me as for our pre-bye record at best we'll be 3-2 but 2-3 would be fine with me, i just hope we'll beat the bills and jets. Good Luck behind enemy lines!!! you too Cuban

It is cool being in Tampa as a Yankees fan. I know I am getting off base here. I could always catch a bunch of Spring training games there. Catch them during the season when they play the Rays. Now I am 2 hours south of there, and notice I am up to neck in Red Sox this and Red Sox that. Spring training home of the Sox. Makes my skin crawl....

menace, tampa on of the best places in florida and can't watch any game you want? even in JED's country they see any game they want.they should have a law in florida saying ;
1-All dolphins games must be shown by law.
2-When Tom Brady come to town residents must clean their front yards and keep their Pit Bull inside their homes.

I think this is the year we finally beat the texans

fsudolphins 13,you can cut on food and beer and pay for cable for 5 month only and watch your team and if you don't have the money sell your cats.

josh red sox pitcher got 6 games off B/C e trayed to hit a player in the head w/the baseball during last week game.

Gopats,

Beckett got 6 games off damn. Who were they playing?

Armando(If that's REALLY you)..LOL
Your presence on your own blog is welcome. And salient.
Trading down for extra 2nd and 3rd rounders is so...deflating to fans, but as you mentioned, a possible scenario, due to the large # of UFA's on our roaster in 2010. Speaking of the possible season of 2010 with no cap, will there any way to regulate player movement, or will it be the wild west?
Thanks for the blog.

“fsudolphins 13,you can cut on food and beer and pay for cable for 5 month only and watch your team and if you don't have the money sell your cats.” posted by Gopats

lol good suggestion, but there are a few problems, one i have no cats i don't even like cats, also i don't drink so you fail

it was almost 105 mile/our at Bobby Abreu of the Angels , i agree that was not a sport act when he throw that baseball at some body's head like that and reminded me of the honorable"who never lied "Mr roger the enhanaced drugs idol

Gopats,

Here is my chance to get some insight on a Sox fan. Why is it that you guys dislike the players that leave your team? (Clemens, Pedro, Manny, to name a few)

DON'T give up fsud 13 yet,we can come with more ideas,

1-do you have a jed in your family?if yes, sell him in sudan.
2-go out and get two cats from the shelter and turn around and sell them.
3-call the cable company and ask them if you can use 20 bucs a month from the tarp money

i think ill just go to friends house or sports bar
but thanks for the ideas lol

GOPATS, man ,i thought i could not wAIT. SIT TIGHT. SELL THOSE TICKECTS

cuban, to be an original player and honest OR to be a fake ;
1-we still love pedro for ever ,he won the ring without Drugs,in fact based on th info we ave learned today about baseball and drugs PEDRO is the best pitcher last 25 years.
2-the same goes for him,nod rugs and huge numbers.

3-NOW for roger, he was making 20 mill in the that town you named it twic NY NY and he was no thing but ................you pick the words


Wo loves this old TV show " the golden girls " ?

Armando, we play all our preseason opponents in the regular season. Is this a first for us or any team?

Finally primetime

I am going to go with 10-6 in 2009. I tried posting on Greg's blog, but it wouldn't let me.

jacobwhitaker.com

Armando, will any of these prime time games be played with that godforsaken dirt infield still in place?

Greg Cote is bush league!

Pat, The ways the mighty marlins are playing i wont be surprised to see that dirt field being out the till late oct ,early nov.

cuban,do you like the TV show " the golden girls " , do you miss nathaniel ?

Miami signed an aussie punter by the last name of bond to compete with fields. Maybe Salguero can track a breaking story down.

Cuban is Nathaniel

no way cuban is nathaniel and soulj , can you tell 2 reasons why you believe so?

Mando, I think we are in 2009. Your season schedule heading says "2008"

Why don't they pick up Plaxico
