Live blog of Preseason 2 begins here at 7:30

We're blogging live from EverBank Field starting at 7:30 p.m.

Meet me in the comments section for that extravaganza.

Things to look for tonight:

Biggest issue -- The interior offensive line. It is time to settle on some guards, folks. I reported last week that Joe Berger has won the starting job at center. But LG Richie Incognito, RG John Jerry, Cory Procter, and Donald Thomas have been mixed and matched so much we really cannot say with certainty the starting combo for the season opener is set. Yes, Jerry is a favorite to win a job. Obviously Incognito is getting his chance as well. But tonight will go a long way in deciding whether they keep their advantage. One thing to know is the club is somewhat disappointed that Thomas has not improved sufficiently as he gets ready to start his third season. The former rookie sensation hasn't really progressed as much as they hoped.

Interesting Issue One -- Patrick Turner was impressive in last week's preseason opener. Can he be a factor two weeks in a row? If he can, I would tell you he will all but assure himself of a roster spot. I want to believe that Greg Camarillo is going to make this team based on his history, experience and dependability. But I want to see Turner and Marlon Moore push him.

Interesting Issue Two -- The kick return spot makes me wonder what's going on because, let's face it, the team doesn't really want Patrick Cobbs to win the job. The Dolphins want someone else to be their primary guy with Cobbs as an offset returner. So my eyes are on Nolan Carroll. It could be a big night for Carroll. He's from the Jacksonville area. He's fast, he's got a reputation for having good hands, and he's going to be on the team. Watch to see if he makes a case for winning the job tonight.

Late-game reason to watch: Nate Ness has opened the eyes of coaches and with Will Allen's status uncertain through the first week of the season, the team is hoping Ness follows a nice outing against Tampa Bay with a nice outing against the Jags. We shall see.

I'll update here with any pregame news. Right now, it is raining at the stadium. But at least there is no mud because, well, there is no baseball infield.

See you at the live blog.

Rookie corners having a tough series ... Sims-Walker taking both to school.

SOLIA ND TO START

got picked by his own guy.

dobbins had a nice tackle on mjd

Defense Sucks. So Does Davis And Smith.

defense looks awful man

I want to punch Tony Boselli in his face. Can't stand that guy.

misi stepping up

Please say it aint so, The Jags are pasing all over us? Is that what im hearing?

rookie corners? they arent rookies

wth is up with this team!

Thats what your hearing...all true, Run defense looks good!!!

yes secondary is awful. safeties complete garbage. s smith is clueless

this team sucks, all hype...i see the normal 0-3 start coming.

Geez, they look bad

lol can't even stop em with 12

Damn Jax just went 96 yards and scored a TD with ease...ouch

WTF!!! man i had high hopes for this season. not looking good through 1. discouraging.

Damn This Is Ugly

12 guys and they still cant stop 'em....o boy -nolan better be busting heads in practice this week, 1st team gives up another score---through the air!!!

wow, these have been some awful, boring, ugly, disappointing games the past two weeks.

maybe caroll should get some first team snaps.

He Just Boxed Carrol Out Of That

Too Many Big Plays On D Fense

Keep the faith people... its preseason... and they are coming off a 2 hr delay... good things may still be to come tonight...

ugh. This is not plan A at all.

i want a nice return here... pardon if it has happened and I am not yet up to speed.

told u guys, everyone acts like we had some great draft and nolan was gonna make us good somehow

i think the D will get a lot more pressure in the regular season when they run their blitzes.

Smith does not look like a starting CB so far. I know he's only had a hand full of starts, but man, you need to cover better then that. Nolan D will force the corners to play 1:1 often.

Sparano needs to keep the starters in until they get it right

Need A Good Drive

Defense Looking Pretty Unimproved

will all you fair weather fans please jump off the wagon now!!!! u guys are a joke!!! whining...how did they go 96 yards they started at the 22....what a tard!!! go join the jets bandwagon please!

this team sucks, all hype...i see the normal 0-3 start coming.

Does this V-share link work in the regular season too? Wow. How does the NFL not shut it down?

Nice touch on that pass to Polite, take note Henne haters

I am not concerned about the defense. Nolan is going to use a base defense during Preseason and not give other teams the opportunity to see what he plans. On the other hand, not liking the offense with the continual use of Wildcat. Henne is our leader, let him lead.

They Have A Lot Of Second Team Guys Plying In The Line... There Is No Pressure On The D.

not liking the 1st team thus far, need to see some consitancy like in---first downs, only player to show he belongs here is bess!!!

this is getting old..

LOL at tony... good post... a bad preseason series? the sky must be falling!!! lol

Wow A Check Down

I Meant Qb

hey carlito how the weather there in costa?
I wired the new marina in quepos.

I Hope Im Wrong But Its Not Looking Good For This Season

http://atdhe.net/22394/watch-miami-dolphins-vs-jacksonville-jaguars working good

henning is awful

good lord back to back wildcat???

We Look Horrible...I Am Tired Of Hearing It's Only Preseason. 1st String Looks Inept


wow this is horrible..rain & team sucks

relax on D we are looking at different guys out there. Carrol was the guy covering on the touchdown.

Look, I dont think anyone is panicing, but there were far higher expectations of the TALENT on this team. Even if we are not running normal blitzes, this play that i am hearing about is sub par, and sounds like tier 2 talent. Jacksonville is not running their main blitzing D and stopped us. There is a reason to be worried at this point. We can not make excuses about delays and weather, and its early, if the other teams we are playing are dominating us. They are in the same situations we are. damn this stinks right now.

hilarious not concerned about d???? our secondary is horrible

polite=first down

dink and dunk baby!!!

Hey test and other idiot fans...don't know if you realise but the Wildcat won Miami quite a few games.

nice

And that is how important Marshall is to this team.
