Live blog -- too bad no Tampa WRs will show

Joey Galloway is playing for New England and neither Antonio Bryant nor Michael Clayton, Tampa Bay's starting wide receivers, are playing for the Buccaneers tonight.

So the Dolphins rookie cornerbacks may have to wait until the regular season for their first serious NFL test.

(Yes, I know New Orleans is a great passing team and Miami finishes the preseason there next week. But let's face it, the Saints aren't going to let their starters play too long in the final preseason game.)

So this is bad news. But it is also good news.

At minimum, both Sean Smith and Vontae Davis are getting broken in sloooowly. Remember that last week the Panthers kept both Steve Smith and Muhsin Muhammad -- their starters -- on the bench.

Anyway, the live blog starts in the comments section below. Let's get to it.

Pennington has a nice pocket and gets sacked...receivers are not getting open

Anyone else concerned that another so-so team can move at will on the pass game with their second team receivers?

wow looks like Phins are shell shocked, not ready for this game. did they take Tampa seriously??

Pennington is a fine QB. We all know that. But I think sometimes he gives up in the pocket too quickly.

Why not hang in there a little bit instead of running out?

Never mind, I know the answer. He doesn't want to get trucked.

Good drive.

No push from the line at all

Gibril Wilson flies to the football

Nice catch


bad call

Strike 1 for Hartline?

Bull Sh$%

Bad call

NICE catch...dont care about the PI that was a great catch and a crappy call.



What was that mando? Oh...thought I heard u say Chad couldn't throw deep

Crap penalty, come on both guys handchecking

You guys are going to say I'm crazy, but I tell you Miami coaches will like the fact hartline pushed off a little bit. That hardly ever gets called in the regular season.

That offensive pass interference won't be a plus play for Hartline. But coaches won't hate it.

Nice catch by Hartline...Robbed

Great punt shitty coverage

This is an awful start to a game, THANK GOD THIS IS PRESEASON.

Pennington or Henne ? What's your pick folks

All that was was some hand fighting. Such a crap call. The refs have been brutal this summer.

Bad bad omens boys

that was laughably pathetic.

Nice catch by Hartline, he's showing why he's starting

we should just go for it on 4th down instead of punt. our special teams make me sick

what a start

How the hell do we give up that kind of return off that cannon of a punt?

Our special team scares me

The real problem SPECIAL TEAMS = still not special

We look like we are sleeping. WTF

Can we cover the receivers this time? Anyone?

Here we go. A 10 yard gain on a 3rd and 18. Don't get excited finfans. No play makers on O will doom us this year. I have already seen enough to know that

Wow, where's the D? Where's the special teams? Sprano can't be happy...rough start

Everyone knows that third down catch was by Bess, right?

Coaches hate offensive penalties btw

MANDO, HORRIBLE START. Well lets see if the D can settle down and get us back on track. Bucs came out kicking but and we weren;t ready.

Crawl their arse Tony

I'm going to assume were tired afer Sundays game. We usually play poorly after a game right before. Either that or I'm Gina have to pop a few corks to watch the rest of the game. This is National tv boys! Embarassing so far.

Is it going to rain everytime miami plays ?

JT coming on the blitz -- a step slow. Would he have gotten there 5 years ago?

You tell me...

TAMPA is kicking your losing ass

God Leftwhich is awful.

receivers are always open for bucs...what gives?

Lefty's going to throw a couple pics

open receiver - 21 yards

hey mando do you think you could get the bosses to spring for a JAVA chat applet they are super cheap and easy, just a though it would make for a better flow to these.

Damm missed on third again

Will Allen isn't looking so hot today

this is truly pathetic

Wake up!!!!! Damn

That's the second similar post that Allen is right on his man but doesn't stick a hand in there.

If that happens against Mo Stovall, how's he going to stop freakin' good receivers?

Wow we are making the bucs look awesome. That hartline p/i call was horrible.

Leftwich has too much time to throw.

Yay langford!

Put moses in the game. we have no pass rush

langford doing good

Finally a nice penetration...lets see if that settles the D down

Good coverage and pressure on the 2nd series.
