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.

Ronnie the Rabid Beast and RIcky the Rhino are great combo

How long is porter signed for?

Carlto , i see you right now , wave at me. :)

looking at the game in a calmer state, the jets ran pretty good on us

Turd, I talked to Clemons and he told me he's going to be stealing interceptions left and right when he gets in the game.

But then I asked him what he precisely he needs to do to get in the game and he didn't really have an answer. To me, a guy's gotta know what he needs to improve on to make the corrections and adjustments. I doubt he starts anytime soon.

yes i would trade joey for a 3. what is roth's status by the way?

Trade Porter in a heartbeat. Look how much cap space that would free up given that massive guarantee'd contract he got.

He just does not seem to be the same player as last year, does not come up big when we need him most, and Wake filled in admirably as a pass rusher. With Roth back and healthy, and Wake playing pass downs, Porter would not be missed.

Did Jenkins look a little early or he that quick?

I'd trade Porter for a third rounder in a heartbeat...

Yes. I don't think anyone will, he doesn't seem to be the presence he once was. Let Wake and Anderson and Roth when he comes back get the snaps.

Upper managment please bring A. Boldin. Armondo do u think this can happen?

Armando, seeing how the Dolphins struggled a little with Leon Washington, what are you hearing in regards to getting Matt Roth involved once he can be active, as in to stop the run.?

Roth is a different dude. He was talking today and did not know he is able to start practicing next Monday.

He thought he had to sit out six GAMES and not six WEEKS.

He will not be performing brain surgery on anyone anytime soon.

Still say the Pat White pick was frivolous. We should of traded up to get Rey Maualuga, then put Crowder back outside.

i've haerd philly is going to put kevin curtis on the trading block. think their will br any interests from the fins?


Here comes more nonsense

Here comes stupid gimmick fake punt number 2.... nonsense... randy starks had him

yes then take that pick and send it to bills for lee evans

talk about gimmicks

i would trade porter for a 3rd,

That play is why I'd trade Porter

Aloco, you stupid or just big chiste?

Dolphins84d, I know the Dolphins love Boldin, respect him a lot.

But they worry about his health, his contract demand, and the fact he would cost a second rounder plus other considerations.

Tony translation:

When he says it's about execution he means some player didn't make the play. Just won't say it that way.

J Lo looks bored

David Clowney is the real Clown

I think Culver has better cover ability and ball skills than Wilson. I'd be nervous with Clemons starting and not being weened into games like Davis was at CB.

Funny that LoLa from the Bronx is owning part of the Dolphins and rooting against the Jets.

most teams blitz a young QB, especially inside the 20. Miami seems to blitz very little. Especially corner and safety bliz concepts.....Is that the current philosphy?

I'd trade Porter for an ILB.

Dolphins have no business letting them get another field goal before half. When that happen 13-10, I say, "this feel just like colts game..."

Then Henne the Hero stepped back in building

For a safety

Po, Dolphins had off-field concerns about Maualuga. Let's just say he likes to stay well hydrated.


Please confirm for the haters that I am no Cuban Menace.

Absolutely trade porter if you have a suitor. Let Anderson and Wake and Roth get the snaps. What would his cap hit be for a team that trades for him??

The best stat on the Monday night game was 0 sacks.Especially for as many blitzes the Jets were bringing give it up for the O-line

Did not know that.

We need safeties badly

I also like to stay well hydrated with Imperial Beers

you think the cardinals would consider for porter and a pick and/or receiver for boldin??

Folks, I can see your web addresses and Carlito is not Cuban Menace. And I am not Cuban Menace.

Thank you Armando!!!!!

Jenkins was a beast in this game

Theirs two carlitos

Can't believe we gave them the ball back and let them get another fg before half!

arg, Pasqualoni believes he can get to the QB with his base rushers and rarely uses blitzes -- maybe only 20 percent.

Been that way since he got here, which is last year.

Meet the evil one last night


I am the O.G. Carlito. We cool...

I would trade Porter for a third.

Armando Henne did miss Fasano on what look to be a touch pass. Henne hesitated not knowing if he should have gunned it or take something off.
But that one to Camarillo was perfect!
If he nails those more often than not we are gonna be hard to stop.

Offense looked great the last 2 weeks. But let's all be serious I don't see us going deep into the playoff's with the way the defense is playing. Just a thought..... We need TURNOVERS!

And Chucky Gruden is a really good addition to the Monday night team imo.

Don't think so Cesar.

Will Allen: bad game, good game, bad game

A lil late, but I say blitze a lil more

Thanks bud

anybody noticed all they talked about was how good sancheeeeez is

Chucky is awesome. Plus Madden was an a-hole.


You owe me apology. We don't have to be friend, but you have to admit you wrong about me being Cuban Menace!


I think the defense will improve as the season goes on.... and I think getting Roth back will be huge.
