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.

Boy he's quick...

I own this site!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gibril Wilson avoids more embarrassment this year by tearing his acl and mcl.

jaison biagini, you just nailed it. I see at least 4 that wont be on the team, and might not even last through the first cuts. It all about giving people their shots to make the team.

some perspective: When the D has to start defending from the 40 everytime due to the bad kick coverage...that is hard.

Should never had moved Bokamper to DE... was a better LB

have most of you ever seen a preseason game before.... do you expect us to hold them to zero yards!!!

There you go nollan, tedd ginn who*lol*

Nice return by Caroll

good return by Carroll!!

starks is a beast i think he just answered the quyestion of playing NT

they need to teach these kids how to run with the ball in the right hand. he lost maybe 10 yrd on that return!!! good job though

I love Pennington.

Pennington to Marshall for 37 yards. Marshall wasn't open and still Pennington threw it. Just the way it should be.

Yets are tearing it up ... 9-3.

pennington's ball looked like a freethrow

There is Marshall specialty!!

MARSHALL

Nice Marshall! That's what he was brought in here to do. Finally a number 19 who can make plays!

the number of the beast............ 19!!!!!!!!!!

hahahahahahahahaha!!

Jimmy Cefelo is awful.

Cornerbacks Look Aweful. Offense Looks Crazy Good.

a real corner would have picked that off

penny is lucky marshall was going against a scrub

Thought it would have been good for Henne to try 2 minute drill

i told everyone here but non you listened to me

i love pennington airing it out but his arm is so slow i thought it was gonna be intercepted for like 10 seconds

henne needs to trust marshall on some passes like that.

151.2 QB rating for Henne. Pretty sure it would be perfect or at least pretty damn close.

first teamers are getting pulled.. pennington is in and proctor is in on line... great job by our first team offense!!!

i think grove won the starting job back

marshall was up against a 2nd string CB...

penny's pass was so bad

we have issues with our secondary.

Test, isn't it past ur bedtime?? Middle school starts early

Think about this: Henne finished the night 11 of 14.

But he would have been perfect 14 of 14 save the three drops by Ricky, Marshall and hartline.

Get the starters out of there, Tony.


they should have invoked the infield fly rule on Penny's pass

i got a woody on that catch

Henne was good, no doubt.

take marshall out...

no need for this

dramo lmao

test, why re you here? marshall has been doing that for 4 years now, against starters. you have to throw some to him even when he is covered and trust him to either catch it or knock it down

How bad is the Jaguars' pass rush?

well first team d was so so.. only 1 sack and a couple big pass plays... but held them to 7 yards on 7 rushing plays... damn good... our kick off returns have been good... our coverage SUCKS!!!! thats my only concern heading into this year!!

SMART PENNINGTON

Test this....

Fair weather Dolphin fans, please stop posting comments here.

Maury Willis? It is Maury Wills, jack ass.

there that college 40 time he said he was running

armando,
henne had the one incompletion going to marshall in the endzone that was knocked down.

Really looks like they want to test the chemistry between Penington and Marshall

LOL

Yets 3 fg's were all after muffs or a fumble after they punted.

yeah get out fair weather fans this is a fl team

Ronnie brown, sweet feet!!

Pennington is money.

These guys need to PLAY to get their timing down and get in sync. Please stop with someone might get injured so take them out. These guys are pro's who want to be out there playing, not sitting on the bench watching

ok this gonna be a very interesting season

Marshall another great block

I think they HAVE their timing. That is why I want them out.

Penningston's passes don't look as smooth as Henne's, but he seems more poised out there.
