« Dolphins primer to the Bucs preseason game | Main | Chad Henne: No excuses, it wasn't good enough »

Live blog of Dolphins-Bucs starts at 7 p.m.

The live blog of tonight's Dolphins game versus Tampa Bay starts in the comments section of this post at 7 p.m.

I watched Chad Henne roll up in his Beemer and enter the stadium earlier this afternoon and I suddenly realized I am watching the start of what could be his entrance into NFL stardom. Let's hope.

You know that dawns on me how hopeful and yet uncertain things are for the Dolphins.

Take the defense: Mike Nolan's crew tonight starts two rookies (Jared Odrick and Koa Misi), two first-time starters (Cameron Wake and Chris Clemons),two second-year starters (Sean Smith and Vontae Davis),  a player in a new position (Randy Starks), and a player on a new team (Karlos Dansby).

The Dolphins defense is the definition of brand new, untested and a package full of surprises.

On offense tonight I will be keeping my eye on the offensive line. I want to see this group start to come together. Amazingly, this is the third year of the Bill Parcells-Jeff Ireland-Tony Sparano plan in which they began to build from the interior out.

And they're still building.

Anyway, tonight's game is on NFL Network for satellite subscribers. It is on CBS-4 if you are in South Florida. You can otherwise catch it here online. And of course, I would appreciate if you join me during the live blog.

Sean, whose David Henne?

I wish we could have had good weather and not playing in the mud. I would love to know if it would have made a difference. Even so, we have to play in the same weather that they are. Sparano is gonna be up their butts all week.

What a jackass this commentator is. Talking about Bucs not having as much trouble in the rain but not realizing the Dolphins are starting in the mud every series and the bucs are starting on nice fresh grass. What a moron, at least mention that!

first game of the preseason people, not much you can take from this

Agreed Carlito.

I cant believe there is still no audio on the television broadcast of this game!!!!

Great play by Douglas! Commentator callid him "Marcus"

nice!!!! wow nolan!

nolan carroll still looking good

NOLAN!!!!!!!!!!

Finfan23 you are absoluetly right! Sparano is going to tear the O-line and the WR a new one. Starks looked good, Carrloo is looking great, Brown and Williams looked ready, O-line hast to come together, lets stop looking at this thing half empty. Henne will have a 23Td 11 Int season, you'll see.

Anyone want to bet that felonious scumbag Belichick is going to seed the clouds for a rainstorm on the day the Dolphins come to town?

Oh No, The Omly one that would think of that is......... "HOME"..........

No, Home is a sadly obsessed maniac with a one-track mind and a lousy prose style. I, on the other hand, am a sadly obsessed Dolphins fan with a two-track mind and a semi-decent prose style.

Nice by marques Douglas!!!

wowowowowowowowowow
fumble! yay!

Carroll with a PD and a FF on consecutive plays.

That fumble was just too easy....

Jared Odrick get credit for recovering the fumble. Nate Ness gets credit for causing the fumble.

ODRICK!!!!!!!!!!!!

sO SUPPOSEDLY THE RAIN ISN'T EFFECTING THE BUCS. Why do they have two turnovers? Slipped ball on a throw and slippery ball pops out for fumble. Hmmmmmm....

check that....they are fast

Looking at the replay, it was Nolan Carroll forcing the fumble.

carlito.. I have audiio... have you tried turning up the sound?

Nolan Carrol has announced his prescence. That didn't take long

THANK GOD WE GOT AUDIO

Giovanni, not trying to be harsh just on a crusade to get rid of the old cliche "drinking the koolaid". Please stop! :)

And Pigpen enters the mud-wallow. He ought to be happy in there!

Get Ronnie Brown out of the game. This is a waste.

Same Style of writing as my Uncle, You might know him, Uncle Bottoms....lol...

Smith might want to watch his back....


Nolan the new boy in town.

Good grief! GET RONNIE OUT OF THERE! He doesn't need to test his broken foot in the mud.

Get Ronnie out of the game! WTF?

So Henne is being treated like an accomplished starting NFL QB. What a joke.He should be out there the rest of this quarter. Minimum.

Andrew Gardner, you are running stadium steps on monday.

Yours truly,
Tony Sparano.

P.S I am thinner than Rex yes!

Why yes, Lord Menace-Bottoms is well known in this neck of the woods.. or should I say the Tiger-Woods?

How is he being traeted like a veteran QB? Veteran QBs get yanked after the first series. Henne was not.

He threw it into TRIPLE COVERAGE!!!! WOW!

Definitely should throw into triple coverage way down the field. Yep that'll work.

Offense totally garbage!!!

Vintage Tyler Thigpen

sparano and this offense are offensive.

Thigpen overthrows Camarillo who is surrounded by three defenders. Was that bad judgement to throw the ball to an outnumbered defender? Or good to overthrow all of them? Meanwhile with three defenders on Camarillo there had to be another WR open.

Brdon Fields has been a real bright spot too.

Thigpen is garbage. Great read, guy was double covered with a safety over the top and he throws it anyway. I have serious doubta as to this guys intelligence. Could'vce tied the pitt game last season with a kick and he throes a pick on a stupid pass. Sick of this guy

Sporano will bring the O back to earth...maybe they were drinking thier own cool-aid. I think the O came in to this game with the big head

Camarillo is hurt - limping

crap call

Misi is having a great game so far.

this team needs a NEW COACH A FOOTBALL COACH, so under prepared

boulderfinfan would be offensive if anyone cared.
~ T. Sparano

Anyone seen Francis out there?

Interesting that Misi is the only defensive starter still in the game.

OK logging off now guys, take care, GO phins!

culver has had a very good and aggressive game so far

Could be worse guys, You could Have Cam Camron as the head coach.... Keep it perspective guys, it's a PRE-SEASON GAME..........

On Nolan Carroll...

By the way, folks, I want to repeat: I appreciate you guys coming back here.

I haven't seen some of you on here lately and it makes me happy that you are here tonight.

Sgt Stroughter is putting our D in the cobra clutch

Nolan needs to show some blitz packages

Ok...

I have spent way to much time reading and listening to the experts say that the dolphins are on the verge of doing great things. So far they have done nothing to justify that.

My expectations were a bit high...I had envisioned a better start to the first game of the season.

thank heavens for the defense
