« Chad Pennington: Plan is to play again | Main | Texans lead Dolphins 10-0 in 2nd quarter »

Live blog of Dolphins vs. Houston right here

We got the live blog roaring to life as we get closer to kickoff. Meet me in the comments section for that.

The inactives today for Miami are Tyler Thigpen at the No. 3 QB, Kory Sheets, Evan Oglesby, Andrew Hartline, Andrew Gardner, Lionel Dotson, Ikaika Alama-Francis, and Patrick Turner.

Yup, Patrick Turner is again inactive.

Ted Ginn Jr. starts as do Joe Berger at center for Jake Grove and Nate Garner at guard for Donald Thomas. 

Having said that, I have to address a story that is elsewhere in The Herald website -- that of having Andre Johnson join the Dolphins.

Um, he's signed through 2014 with the Texans. He's the best wide receiver in the NFL. The Texans are in the business of keeping great players, not giving them away. He was the No. 3 overall pick when he was selected in the first round.

He's not the kind of player to make a stink about being traded.


He is not going to be coming to the Dolphins anytime soon. Not next year. Not the year after. So please forget it. It's not happening.

It is happy speculative fodder. But it is not happening, not only because Houston won't do it, but because the Dolphins would never pay the draft day price it would take to pry Johnson away from Houston -- which I would imagine would be multiple first-round picks, plus other considerations.

So can we move on?

About today, the Dolphins must be more concerned with covering Johnson than acquiring Johnson. It will be a test for Miami's young corners, as I wrote earlier this week.

Andre Johnson is a dream, and were in the real world...I wish, and it's nice to daydream about. Let's focus on containing him today! Go Fins!

Mando, has Jake Grove lost his starting job to Berger or is he not 100%?

More pat white!


How's it going? Hope you had a good christmas.

I like Malcolm Floyd of the chargers as a possible free agent pick up for Miami. He is young, 6'5, and still has his best years ahead of him. He seems like just the kind of guy the trifecta likes. If the Chargers have to pay big money for Vincent Jackson, they might not be able to sign Floyd.

Also, I don't think a move for Boldin is out of the question in the offseason. I have heard rumors that the Cards will make a bigger effort to move him this year.

What are your thoughts?



I love your upfront speaking. Johnson will never play here but maybe Floyd as Carlito mentioned or even Evans from Buffalo.

Thank you so much for the remarks about Andre Johnson. Honest journalism on your part. Thank you.

Now on to the game.

About to head to the game we were at the 50 yard line right behind the dolphins bench last week! It was awesome... This week our local sports bar will have to do go dolphins!!!!

BTW, Omar Kelly is the biggest idiot in the South Florida media.


I am ready for the Phins first victory over Schaub the Softie and his Texans... I am still mad over that qb draw in the last play of the game in 08!!!

Who's he?

Anyone have a stream up for todays game?

Way to address a non-issue mando. Great reporting as usual. Yeah, I'm a dork.

Texans have no decent runners, so Johnson will have a great game anyway.
Most important is not letting the other guys beat us!

Thanks Armando for pointing out the "what was the point of that" article about Andre Johnson and the Fins. Focus on the tasks on hand: contain #80 today, win our next 2, hope we get some help to make the playoffs and then draft our own WR in April.

Carlito . Miami will win on a late FG by carpenter to avenge browns kicking 5 Fg to beat us in 1 game and kicking a 56 yd fg to beat us in another, The thought of those make me want to puke along with the slight hangover i have from last night . My brother was is town for chritsmas . So alomg with some friends , we went out and painted the city red. Somehow i was be accused by a buffoon of being urban meyer last night, LMFAO !!!!!! I CAN' T STAND FLORIDA !!!!

brown kicking. TYPO

today is the day we FINALLY beat the texans


Merry Christmas to you, surprised you didn't paint the town aqua and orange.

I am a Hurricanes fan, next year the U will take back their seat as best college team in Florida.

If our defence can pick up where we left offer will be ok.I predict a big game for our corners with their tight coverage if our D-front can get pressure.Come on fish,WE NEED THIS ONE.Dont let mr down.

LMAO @ CARLITO ! Merry christmas and Feliz Navidad. We painted the city aqua and orange and every color you can name. I went to a school in the big east , I only root for my alma mater. Florida is one of the biggest schools that i can't stand alomg with ohio st and Usc,

Thank you Grandedolfan! He does it week in and week out: reports nothing.


Dolphins fan from chitown baby! First game since we took down the undefeated Bears. Bringin home a win today!

What Does Ohio state have in common with marijuana????

They both get smoked in bowls

1. Glad someone else jumped on the Malcom Floyd bandwagon. Of course it was my boy Carlito. 25, huge, fast enough, and needs to move on from San Diego to have the chance to be the #1 man. Since Jackson is also a free agent and will be a priority, Floyd may eb there for the taking.

2. Stupid article in the herald today re: Andre Johnson on the Dolphins. Did Marc write that? Did he just acquire him in Madden 2010?

3. Anyone else catch the mess Damian Williams of USC caused in the Emerald Bowl? Interesting round 2 selection for someone. Can also return punts and kicks? Nice upgrade over Ginn, I'd say.

4. Anyone see Doren Dickenson of Pitt yesterday? 250 lbs TE with 4.4 speed. He's a TE that can run up the seam and be a nice complement to drunken NJ's boy Fasano.

5. I'm ready for some FAWKIN football!!!!


Pitt and the U will be BCS teams next year. Wannstache has got some ballers up there in Pittsburgh!

Link doesnt work

LMAO @ CARLITO. Good one !! . I have a felling ginn going to have a good game.

WQAM app to listen live is great. But the self serving promos and filler instead of commercials is intolerable. Whistles blaring. Too bad I have to turn it off.

Just a reminder...We've NEVER beaten the Texans...EvER

Who invited Marc????

Don't need an invite MarK...Go to hell...

just a reminder... A man shouldn't wear a dress... ever

Hahaha, pick out your New Years dress yet, marc? A nice chiffon number maybe?

LOL...You guys are still pathetic.

any links?

Marc, guess the odds are we will win today. That streak cannot and will not go on forever.

How sweet it'd be to get our first ever win over HOU today! 24-20 Fins win!

Mark , dickenson is barely 6-2 . He's to small for miami. Some are talking about him as a FB/HB.

No dress picked out, but, I have a half-naked Peruvian chick here that I sodomized last night ;)

Anybody have the site where I can arch dolphins online?

what is it? medphinfan?

Henne better start taking care of the ball. His carelessness has been terrible over the past 3 weeks.

I blame him and the coaching staff for not getting the team into the playoffs.

The inconsistency has been here all year long. Things like letting team back in the game, not being able to stop big plays, bizarre play calling and not being able to finish falls at the head coach's feet.

Someone please tell me what happened to the Dolphins defense from which was always in the top ten in the NFL

Marc likes very short girls with a square head and fat arms

Marc, is her name Hector?

NJ, HB I can see, be a waste as a FB considering his ability to stretch teh field. Either way, he'll be a weapon down the seam. Scores lots of TDs too, nice end zone threat

Wow, nice, I got an iPhone for Christmas.. how expensive was your gift?

Mark , did you see taylor mays pull is usual disappearing act ? No Stats last night . OVERATTED !!! Will be a BUST !!!

Just search for wath the dolphin texans game for free trying to remember the name it's something like freetvonline we use it once in awhile

Dear Mr. Salguero

Why don't the Dolphins like Patrick Turner ?
Did you know everytime Patrick Turner is inactive, an angel (Phins Fan) cry's.

Soiled :)

Grove is still not 100 percent and Berger has been grading out pretty well. So combination gives Berger at least one more start.

Dishpan, look around. Other people are interested in the Andre Johnson topic. I don't write for you. I write for everyone.

Once again, if you guys only knew you'd all have soiled bottoms...

Reinaldo Hill is the biggest loss for this team. He was never respected by this admin. He could have came back on the cheap and they let him walk and picked up GARBAGE in Wilson.

Mays even pulled a Gibril and got beat deep on a nice catch n run. Not impressive at all

Thanks Marine




Our defense in the middle of the field is bad and againts silly screen passes we were at the game last week way up close to we had a hard time over the middle
