« 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.

Sooo.

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.

My dead grandmother could gain 100+ yards rushing against this sh t defense!

Sad we have to listen to the Andre Johnson family history............

DOLPHINS SUCK.. they are embarrassing the entire city of MIAMI right now.. all these players are getting paid but arent giving any effort.. just plain embarrassing...

Sparano= little round cheerleaser

it's almost entertaining watching all the people give up

Yes, I know it's 24-0, but if you remember last week, they were down 15 in the 4th with <9 min left, and forced overtime.

You guys seem to forget that the 'fins had a tougher schedule this year... Saints, Falcons, Chargers, Colts... I was like a lot of folks and got excited because of the 11-5 last year, but they're not that caliber of a team.

just chill out... these guys will get better, although I do think Ginn's a bust. Maybe better off converting him to a CB and letting him stick to Kickoff returns. that way they at least get something out of him being the top draft pick.

See ya next year fellas...

We also lost our starting QB and RB. NOt many teams would have even made it this far in the season.

Should have taken a better shot a Schaub

I've seen high school teams perform better.. Armando... can you find a bright side in this mess???

maybe that next week wont be so painful since it wont matter??

We have a off coach who is a 1,00o years old and a def coach who pretty much a BUM. Look at his record as a head coach...... SUCKED! and these are the masterminds running the show.....all I can say is we deserve it!

I AM serious about converting Ginn to a CB. any thoughts?

This is horrible!! We can't win s**t. We can't stop matt schaub! Are you kiding me!!

Seems the U Haul trucks have been reserved. Confirmation number after the game. Who are these guys playing in Dolphins uniforms?

The biggest comeback in a regular season was the 49ers 35-7 comeback against the Saints in 1980. That's a 28 point comeback.

Fins are now 27-0. That would make it the 2nd largest comeback.

COMEBACK

OOOOOOO celebrity owners.............

Galluping Ginn and celebrity owners..................that and 25 cents will get you nothing..

WE NEED 10 PTS BEFORE HALF

We won't have a comeback. We have to actualy score to do that

Predict final score Dolphins 42-Houston 34. Hold on. I just dropped my crack pipe.

I thought the biggest one was the 35-0 lead the Oilers had on the Bills in 1990.

COMEBACK??????????? OMG GET SERIOUS! THIS TEAM AIN'T COMING BACK TODAY!!!!

that was the playoffs, though

Cheer up!! If the world ends tomorrow, New England won't make the playoffs either.

GO PATS!!!!!!!

1st Down !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wonder if the Dolphins can reimburse my Sunday ticket subscription?

I am truly amazed that the Texans have the Dolphins' number. I guess it's just one of those things where one team just owns another.

HENNE THROWS HIGH

damn dolphins heart breakers!

We never beat the Texans and we never will........

A well oiled machine...........

We have 3 first downs!! They have 15!!!!!

They definitely need to draft some DBs in the offseason.

Armando.. Armando.. where are you with you quick whit and sarcasm? I could use a good laugh..

We only have 66 yards of offense for God's sake

I don't really know who's available in the draft, but I'm guessing we'll trade for some help in the secondary.

Off cord.. FIRED! Def cord.. FIRED! It's coming!

We need about 40 draft picks this year

IF I WAS SPARANO I MOTIVATE THESE PLAYERS TELLING THEM IF WE WIN YOU GET TO BANG ANY CHEERLEADER YOU WANT

This is what being a Dolphins' fan entails, people. I've been watching since early 90s and it's heartbreak after heartbreak after heartbreak, and it has come in MANY different forms. Get used to it, and don't even be shocked by it. Let's get a deep thread receiver, hope Davis & Smith improve, draft a couple linebackers for the future and move on.

Next year the big news will be Mylie Cyrus at halftime of every home game!!!!!!!!!!!

Pre game will feature the comic stylings of George Lopez and the misery continues!

Come on. Let's score a TD before halftime!

Omg we got a first down! (sarcaism)

More celebrity owners is what we need......

My butt is dripping wet

I really hope Mark Anthony and J-LO are enjoying the game

We need to draft recievers! Fire Henning.

They'll want their money Back soon....

I have man juice in me

It's all on Henne shoulders and the defense deciding to show up in the second half.

Get out of bounds dope dude

question is what gets done with Pennington after this season?

Keystone cops ......

i am bent over naked

PENNIGTON NEEDS TO BE A BACKUP HAS NO ARM I LOVE HIM BUT HE BETTER BE A BACKUP

I have never seen a team as unprepared for a game as the Dolphins. Complete incompetence.

The Williams sisters just threatened to shove a jock strap down Henning's throat!

Okay, you geniuses that want to fire Henning, tell me who do you replace him with?

Wow where are there heads today. Hennepin looks horrible today
