Live blog of Dolphins-Panthers starts here

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Factoid interesting perhaps only to me: For the first time this season the Dolphins and the Panthers will leave a game week with different results.

One team will win, the other will lose tonight and will be live blogging most of the way through.

But the previous nine games, both teams lost their first three games this year. Both teams won two straight. And each won lost, won, lost, won the past four games.

It is very mild here, temperatures in the 60s. There is a light haze in the air.

The biggest news tonight is that Nate Garner will start at left guard for the Dolphins but Justin Smiley is not inactive. He will be available to play.

 Patrick Turner was working and he will be active for tonight's game.  The inactives are Tyler Thigpen (3rd QB), Lydon Murtha, Paul Soliai, Erik Walden, Anthony Fasano, Andrew Gardner, Lionel Dotson and Nate Ness are inactive.

RB Kory Sheets is active for the first time this season.

For the Panther an interesting note is that WR Steve Smith was involved in an auto accident on the way to the game tonight, but he is not injured. He is expected to play.

Meantime, this is where the live blog will start. So join me in the comments section just prior to kickoff.

"Where do the Dolphins get offense from the rest of the season?"

1) Tight ends (Sperry & Haynos) start doing to opponents what tight ends have done to us down the middle.

2) Hilliard and Sheets take turns at Williams "wildcat" position. As the season progresses, one of the two will learn to fill in for Williams in the Wildcat "triggerman" position (to give him a rest).

3) Polite gets more reps. Not just 3 and 1 plays.

4) Henne's pass completion percentage improves by making more "touch" passes which stops receivers from making as many drops.

5) Pat White in the "spread offense" becomes the X FACTOR! He starts making high percentage passes to backs, tight ends and wide receivers. Yards after catch improves. We'll see deep balls early only if receivers are TOTALLY wide open.

is the live feed by NFL of the actual game?


Games on WSFL, channel 11 on comcast


Defence needs to play all four quarters of the game tonight let's go guys

cool.... I'd even put him back there with Henne and Ricky... they could even have him take the snap with Ted Ginn in motion...

Nope before brown got hurt i thought white should've lined up where henne line up and came in motion from out there. the play creativity would have been unreal. pass plays runs, reverses, double reverses, and screens

Who slips on a kick!?!?!?!?!?!

Jake delhommr throws 5 picks. I said it

Oh, and Chris Mortensen: EPIC FAIL

Joey Porter made a tackle!!!!!

Porter first tackle good start

Porter gets first tackle

Joey gets first tackle

Porter 2 tackle

Already screwing up. Common Corners

Davis vs Steve smith should be interesting

Vonte will be getting his sorry but owned all night by SMith.

NFL.com has no "live feed" just what they call live look-ins. And Po White Trash if your working that hard, tell ur boss u need a break.

Common D!

Nice hit Wilson


Stinky fish getting SHREDDED already.

Joey's got 3 tackles already!!!!

Not to good of a start

TorturedDolphan, douche bag

A word of advice tonight. Don't feed the trolls.

Can someone say BLITZ!!!

They can run the ball good

That is 2 tackles for Porter already...he is coming to play tonight

Defence looks flat at the line

Well, I had some technical difficulties but I'm back.

Now, if the Miami D would show up, we'll be fine.



Ignore them!



I think this might be a good one. I would love to see ginn in the wildcat. That would open
It up a bit and atleast he wouldn't have to catch/miss the ball

Porter had a tackle in three of the first four plays.

Much better on that play

Go Starks baby!!

Starks is awesome. Winter is Coming

Get a job, a life and I know this is a long shot but, get laid, tortued jests fan

That has to be a blown coverage. Terrible.

Tight ends...
