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.

Hey Tampa, fins suck yet your Bucs can't get more than FG's? Watch out! A Leftwhich pass almost hit u in the head there, yes, he's been that innacurate.

a longggggggggggggggggggggggggg season 2-14

Ok now it's time for them to wake up and play ball!!!!!!!! Let's go!!!!!!!

the field is in perfect condition. There is no excuse. And remember:

These are the second-string receivers for Tampa. And Leftwich has been awful in camp. It is not a good look. I can see the butt-chewing by coaches on the far sideline from here.

How long until Parcells takes the reins? The Squad tried to warn you.....

Hopefully we have an adjustment on offense.

Ok, the audio two seconds ahead of the video is driving me nuts...is this happening everywhere, or am I just lucky?

Oh let him b he ain't got a place to go s ucker

a national tv blunder !!! Vegas is smiling right now thats for sure.. IM sick at this rate our starters on offense will get 9 reps..


Never been a fan of Will Allen, or any other CB we've had since we GAVE AWAY Madison and Surtain. I sure as hell hope that one of these young guys can cover. At least Davis tackles better than our FS, lol

Listen a lot of football left to play in the next two corners. Let's see if they can settle down. Bring some consistant pressure, but more importantly come out and punch them in the mouth on the ground on this drive and everything changes.

where is the QB pressure? lets see another penny long pass...at least ginn isnt looking like a bitch and running out of bounds

Great block by Cobbs on the kickoff. Ginn ran into him instead of cutting inside of him. That was bad. It's like he was wanting to head for the sideline instead of cutting up the middle of the field.

Finn needs glasses

Ginn looked pretty slow there...Waiting for blockers?

Hurry Ted get out of bounds!!!!!!!!

Ginn waiting to get tackled; no shiftiness on returns

time for a lil' wildcat, just to keep them honest.

Wow- Ginn couldn't wait to get out of bounds, he wanted to avoid the hit so badly he ran into his blocker.

looks like Phins don't want to be here. Remember we play them in regular season. Not much effort out there. Ginn thought about running out of bounds...what gives Mando?

Audio fast in NC too. Usually radio is seven sec behind so I'm enjoying turning down tv

What is wrong with Ginn's returns? Back off...they have been fine.

Precisely right, Mando.....he was hopeing the play would end instead of cutting it up.


Thanks for sorting that out.

You know, the same thing happened when Jacksonville had it's first team offense and second string receivers last week. We had our second team CB's, because of the flu.

Patients mi amigos!!! Its early Lefty will throw a couple to our side. Watch

The way that Cobbs reacted after the play it seemed like he thought it was his fault

No No wildcat yet...let's see this g-damn team do something.

QAM: "Fins Sleepwalking"

On the bright side at least the Dolphins are dominating the line of scrimmage on off ... oh, never mind.

is cam cameron and cleo lemon on the field?

Chocolate time. Should have bought more

Get Chad Henne out asap!

first quarter stat for total yards:

Tampa 115.

Miami 13.

Honestly, this is really scary. We look like dog shite. One dimensional on offense and awful on defense

Dump off & short.....brilliant.



Gary I'm in hickory go NC dolfans!!!

Good pass protection on 3rd down.

Checkdown Chad strikes again.


6 plays on offense 2 mins into 2cnd quarter?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Bucs ran 24 plays in the first quarter.

Miami ran 3.

No kidding. True stat.

Do we have a game plan for this game?

Why do you do a 4 yoard pas on 3rd and 10?

Fake punt?

I'm gonna need more alcohol!

chris clemons is hustling at least

I bet odinseye is hitting that bacardi pretty hard right about now.


I live in Raleigh, born in Morganton, currently at the coast.


Hey hey, Im abroad, where can i see the game? i mean besides channel surfing ,it kinda sucks, please heeelp me

Mando, what were those expectations for tonight's game again? I need a laugh right about now...

2 three and outs. Wow I was hoping to see a lot more tonight.


I'm in Hickory too!

I'm in Hickory too! We r representing !

I need more beer after this quarter!!!

Wow, don't know what to say

I guess my expectations and their expections are two vastly different expectations.

this is what they get for ignoring the receiver position and thinking that Larry, Curly and Moe running routes would get the job done.

phinfan54.....count your blessings & wait till the real season starts
