« 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.

We got to get 3 here

Where playing russian rulette every time we throw to Ted Ginn

why these announcers

Wow O-line looks fricken awful

Vernon Carey gives up a QB hurry. He's been terrible the last couple of weeks.

apparently our strategy today is lull the texans into a sense of victory by not blocking anybody...

You are right, Mando. I think he is carrying too much weight.

Our D needs to step up hard. Wake,wake,wake!!!

I agree Mandy...Carey has been lethargic


Ted Ginn is awful

Bad News Bears, are Alive in Miami!

miami needs to get some fire befoire the 4th quarter when they are behind. lets win one going away.

Anyone know if those tailgate companions are real? Some of that stuff I won't to buy.

Been trying to tell people you dont go 70-80yds 10-12 plays vs Texans. If the D cant give the O the short field fins are doomed.

Personally, it seems to me Carey has gotten bigger during the season.

By bigger, I don't mean stronger. I mean like cheeseburger bigger. How that happens when you're working your butt off in practice, I have no clue.

want to buy

Jax with a goal line stand held Pats scoreless

demeco ryans > crowder times 10000000000

Sack baby

Moses getting a sack for NJ.

Quentin Moses!!!


do they practice strip drills?

WHy do we rarely pass on first down? Teams do scout us...do something different!

There was Moses Jersey...All for naught though


I can't see the game who's covering Johnson?vontae or Sean

This defense is so undisciplined. They suck.

Afraid to tackle!

Where the hell was Joey????

Miami Dolphins = terrible on screen passes all season long... God its getting annoying

damn ppl getting run that havent played in weeks

Sack then 16 yarder

Yes armando. LOL !!

Why can't we ever convert 2nd and 16???? Atleast they can't run the ball!!!

How do you get that first down???

16 yard screen come on. we are sucking.

Rotate Moses, Anderson and sit peezy

Crowder is not on the field. Torbor playing ahead of him.

Of course, the Dolphins need someone to play ahead of Ayodele, too.

How slow is Aydele

They suck.

dont look prepared for that screen play at all!

Not looking good at all

1 step forward and 2 steps back

No heart

we look awfully slow today on D...

This is PATHETIC !!!!

Nice emotion.

Do these guys know they need to win this game???

Miami's only chance to stop this passing attack is by sacking Schaub. Period.

Ohh it's going to be a looong day......


Come on Vontae!!!!!!!

This is so painful to watch!

Looks like Houston is too fast for the Fins defense.


We can't tackle good lord

That run by Chris Brown was a clinic in terrible tackling.

Why can't we tackle today?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
