Pace backpedals before tonight's live blog

Calvin Pace hated on the Dolphins. Then the Dolphins, led by Channing Crowder, hated on Calvin Pace. And now Calvin Pace is backpedaling as if he's a Pro Bowl cornerback.

If you need to get caught up on what I'm talking about, simply scroll down to the post below this one. If you're up to date, you should know that today Pace kinda, sorta regretted he called out the Dolphins after they whupped Pace and his New York Jets teammates, 31-27 on Monday night.

Pace today was asked if he regretted calling Chad Henne a "second-year clown quarterback," and saying the Dolphins Wildcat package is "nonsense."

"That's how I feel," Pace said. "When you play defense, you would love to have someone just come out and run conventional stuff. It is a conventional offense just lined up a different way.

"I said some thing and I definitely should have thought about it and re-phrased it a little bit. I respect the Dolphins. They beat us. It's not like they went out there and stole the game from us. They were efficient. They ran the ball and they made plays when they had to.

"I tip my hat to them. But we've got another chance to play them and hopefully the outcome is going to be different."

I know this outcome won't change. And that's the beauty of tonight's live blog of the NFL Network's re-air of the Dolphins vs. Jets. I predict the Dolphins will win. I predict we'll have fun discussing the plays as they happen -- again.

I predict I'll have a couple of cold beverages as I watch and type, which could get kind of interesting if you know what I mean.

Again, the game is on NFL Network. And it, plus the live blog here, start at 8 p.m.

i am glad that every one is happy with my nick name for henne ;

Finally i can get on, it wouldnt load the page mando?

Cobbs is going to be a big loss. On that first drive he made 2 huge blocks that sprung Williams and Brown

Secrets for the Saints?

Ken Doll wears a thong. Oh, that's no secret.

YESSSSSSSS ! miami is up 7-0. LMAO !


What you think about fact that young rookie cb are playing the best in secondary and the vets are ones making the mistakes (The Gerbil)?

cobbs was def. a asset

Vontae got beat twice carlito

PLEASE no one tell how the game ended .


don't play with me, you know Henne the Hero is my nickname!

Jets with the Seminole ... How's that for nonsense, Calvin?

Mando I'm still waiting for a breakout game from my boy bess, he has Clutch catches in games but it seems like he always getting bad breaks, Monday he was a shoelace tackle away from a 50 yrd touchdown, i feel like they don't use him enough


... And on that fake punt you guys saw why Cameron Wake isn't ready to start in the NFL.

He has trouble against run plays ... even when the punter is the runner.

Damn that nonsense fake punt!

CArlito, you didn't take the bait .

wilson had 12 tackles this game pretty impressive.

LOL@MANDO. It's more like SEMIN- HOLE.

Oh boy, here come the flags

Bessdabest, what kind of breakout you expecting?

For him a breakout is going to be six catches for 70 yards. He simply does not have the speed to get loose after he makes the first guy miss.

That's just facts.

That's a BS CALL

And Mando, thats why we don;t see Wake the rest of the game

good to hear the announcers getting on the refs...

cause he was so shell shock from that miss tackle

Trudat, Kevin!

Thats technique regarding Wake he has to make sure he gets outside first and never fall for the juke move


Wake might suck against the run... but Joey Porter sucks pretty bad too. I don't know if you've noticed, but there is something seriously wrong with Porter's knees... he can't put on the brakes: once he starts running he can't stop himself or make sharp cuts... looks like his knees are gone if you ask me....

But Bess can make a couple guys miss so hopefully one time it will be just a couple guys :)

Run Ricky run!!

Right about Bess and his speed Armando hes on the team cause of his hands and route running

I don't know about you guys, but to me, the Dolphins CBs ranking (based on who is playing best) today are as follows:

Sean Smith
Vontae Davis
Will Allen
Nathan Jones

Your thoughts?

Mando what can u tell me about this Kory sheets? I know he is on 53 man roster bit is lex hilliard our number 3 back or is this guy?

They should use Wake like they used Trace Armstrong back in the day.

Porter did miss tackle terribly on the next fake punt Mando, wrapped all around and couldnt tackle.

What did one pharmacist say to the other?

I just got a prescription for some clown. Guys last name is Pace and it's for steroids.


Agreed on the cb's!

i am switiching from the game .it losses it's magic when you see it again .i am going to watch HSN they selling a toner crap called slim wear set .

Play the rooks.

What a play call. That's what I do when teams come with a strong pass rush

Vontae didn't even really get beat on that one big play to Braylon Edwards. He had perfect coverage, Edwards just made amazing catch.

Every game is another game of experience for each rookie

These are my thoughts about Henne:

I see only one hole in his game right now and that is the touch pass. Once he figures out that you don't need to blast every pass, he is going to be truly hard to stop.

Another thing is I don't feel worried when he goes back to pass. Everytime Beck, or Lemon or Feeley or even Fiedler went back to pass, I was concerned something bad was going to happen.

I don't get that feeling with Henne.

He'll make mistakes because he's human. But it will be the exception and not the rule.

Sean Smith did a better job on Edwards than Will Allen

It's early. But when have u seen a dolphins QB make 2 huge 3rd down passes on the last drive of a game.


What about that amazing touch pass to Camarillo on 3rd and 5 on final drive?

Speaking of Nathan Jones ,do you like to listen to Nora Jones ?

I agree on Henne

Bessdabest: I saw Sheets today and he looks a lot bigger in person than I thought. Not thick but strong.

He's supposed to be pretty quick. I don't understand why he wasn't drafted.

Mando , I agree on henne , even Though that one touch pass to camarillo was a thing of beauty.

I am using my Miami Dolphins/ Bud Light beer coolie that was given out at gate at this amazing game!


see my post at 8:22

Carlito , are you at the game ? LMAO !

Having a great QB is the difference between a super bowl team and a team that loses in the first round of the playoff's. hope Henne can be hero for long time to come

Thanks mando for answering my questions, sorry to hear about your mom. How u holding up?


Look for me in section 412 row 2

Agreed, NJPHINFAN. That tells me those touch passes will come. He missed a couple to TEs.

How long do you think it will be before a change is made at safety?

Would you guys trade Joey Porter if you could get a third round pick for him?

carlito. the plumber is talking to you


Can u please confirm for haters that I am no Cuban Menace?
