« 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.

Come on make tackles!!!

why the FU%^ cant we tackle????????

Please teach these guys to tackle

Nice job pasqualoni in preparing this D!!!

not ready to play today, thats for sure...another missed tackle...

LMFAO.. Already have more missed tackles then most teams have in a game.

The coordinators need to go


Man the D is a no show today

wow..I'm done until next year...this is absurd...

i guess they dont want to go to the playoffs

Oops! Change my score prediction: Texans 31 Fins 10

Where's the D!! Wake up let's go!

WOW THis is crazy we need LBs

I have to say although I'm not a fan of either coordinator...They aren't the one's missing tackles...

Defense is an absolute joke. Smith and Davis are rookies but they look like high schoolers

Like I said "DEFENSE". They give up more points then the entire AFC

Armando, is the team inspired by Pasqualoni? This is ridiculous!!!

Watch the QB sneak!

just joined in. whats going on?

Good one Dishpan.. When noone cant tackle. Blame the coordinators! idiotic

No heart today. We are in this playoff hunt and they are showing no heart

There's been a Joey "Haleys comet" Porter sighting.

Finally, Joey!!!!!

I F'ing HATE THIS TEAM!!!!!!

0-5 vs Houston

Matching up Nate Jones against Andre Johnson is not sound defense.

Sure makes you wonder what is wrong with this team...an elimination game and not ready to play...

This is depressing

We r going to lose no heart no fire can't tackle can't cover

nice job D

Pathetic lethargic D

Go figure are defense is horrorible

crowder out for remainder of season

Turn out the lights , the party is over !!!

look for play action...

I knew we couldn't stop Shaub. The guy is up there with Peyton, Brees and Rivers.

Why do they have Nate jones on Andre that's retarded!!!!

Not prepared, no heart.

You're right Marc, and thanks for pointing out that coaches don't play on gameday, nice assessment. They need to go because the schemes on both sides of the ball are just plain aweful. Execution could be better, but we all know the playcalling is horrendous

Man, I wish we had Andre Johnson....

Deja Vu all over again.......

Nice defense!! Not!!!!!!!

this is HORRIBLE

why were we rushing everyone...no one there on a quick slant....crap!!

Whatever you can think of in terms of starting out bad the Dolphins do... Terrible coaching and leadership on this team.

Damn madden play! Fuuuccck

Texans playing as if their season is on the line. Dolphins playing as if their season is over.

Every week same old crap.

WTF is going on here!

Our defense suckssssssssssssss

uh...that guys name is andre johnson.he's #89. he's their best player. you might want to cover him all day long, expecially around the end zone.


what the hell is going on the last 2 weeks. its like they think they are going to win so they dont show up. i guess they are playing for draft position. lets see the heart we saw in the fourth quater last week all game.

How hard would it be to double johnson utilizing a safety and cb? This is PATHETIC!! What a great game plan!! Buh Bye playoffs!!!

Here we go again.

Why must they do this to us.. Can't we have just 1 game we can sit back relax and enjoy them winning start to finish...

Preparation is aweful. Just plain aweful

Playoffs ??? Playoffs ???. We will also lose to pitt next week. 7 - 9
