Live blogging Dolphins vs. Saints at 4:15 p.m.

As I just got done saying on my radio show for the last two hours, today's game is a defining one for the Dolphins.

Notice I did not say it is a must-win. It is not that.

But it is one that will tell us exactly what we have in these Dolphins. It will tell us if this team can successfully compete with the elite teams in the NFL -- which, in turn, will tell us how legitimate a playoff contender Miami is.

Or it will tell us that the Dolphins are what they have been the first five weeks of this NFL season -- a good team that can hang with elite teams, but cannot actually beat elite teams.

The 2-3 Dolphins are a on a two-game win streak and that's great. They are undefeated in the AFC East and that's great. And they hung with Indy and Atlanta earlier in the season. But ...

The teams Miami beat are a combined 5-7. At some point the Dolphins have to beat a really good team to convince everyone, including themselves, they are a legitimate playoff contender.

And what better time than today? The Dolphins are coming off a bye so they've had extra time to prepare. They're at home. They're playing a team that had an emotional game last week and has difficult division games the next two weeks after this one.

So the time is now. Today we find out about these Dolphins.

Today defines the Dolphins.

super bowl? no playoffs! this is a draft year..

Ted Ginn..you are awesome !!! somebody please tell sparano this guy suck !!! also tell sparano not to call timeouts before halftime when the opposing team is gunna settle for a field goal on the 2 !!! GENIUS!!!!!! thats something randy shannon would do !!!

at least henne wasnt that bad. he gives us some ray of light.

thank you refs, not meaning to be a sore looser, but this is crap

thanks so much cam cameron for this piece of sh*t Ginn you left us with !!!

Put us out of our misery already and just cut Ginn, I would rather see Hartline get more PT and see what Turner can do. Fasano needs a serious wake up call too.

Pasqualoni killed my Syracuse Orangmen and now he is doing the same to the Dolphins, no adjustments at all.

oh yea...one more thing while i'm venting !!! God i hate having to hear sorry ass jimmy buffet every time we score !!! F**K jimmy buffet too !!!!

It's time to frickin' farm Ginn out someplace. He's next to useless!

jimmy buffet and ted ginn both suck balls !!! I'm pissed !!!!!!

PLAYOFFs??? PLAYOFFs what are u people smokin'

Armando what do you think about the Ginn roster spot? i understand his salary cap and his speed to threaten streching the field but he hurts us more then helps. he will go unemployed after this season right? please right?
