Live blog of Dolphins season opener right here

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Thank you, God. The 2010 NFL regular-season has arrived and so here we are. [I missed the 2009 season opener due to the passing of my mom. I'm thankful to be here today!]

First, let me tell you there will be a live blog here today.

Secondly, you might hear that there is uncertainty on the Dolphins part about the preseason that rookie Koa Misi had. Nonsense. It is true Misi may not start today. It is true Ikaika Alama-Francis will start today.

You know who will determine that?

The Buffalo Bills.

If the Bills come out in a run-package, Alama-Francis will get the call. If the Bills have pass-first personnel in the game, Misi will start. Either way, both will play a lot today.

It is no small accomplishment what Misi has done this preseason. He has gone for a down-lineman in college to a standup 3-4 outside linebacker. If he starts, he will be one of only three  four rookie linebackers to start in the NFL on opening week.

Sean Weatherspoon of the Atlanta Falcons, Daryl Washington, and Rolando McClain of the Oakland Raiders are the other two. So Misi, a second-round pick, is in good company.

As you know, Jason Allen will start for Miami at RCB. That move is not written in stone, folks. Sean Smith, the starter in 16 games last season, will play today. And if he is playing better than Allen, he will take over. If Allen is playing better, he'll keep his jobs and his snaps.

It is a fluid situation.

It is a cloudy day here, with drizzling rain in the air. The temps are in the high 60s. Love it!

There are some number changes today: Interior lineman Cory Procter will wear No. 71 and defensive end Robert Rose will wear No. 56.

I will have the pregame inactives as soon as they come out. So come back. And remember, the live blog starts in the comments section at kickoff.

[Update: The inactives are Roberto Wallace, Channing Crowder, Rose, Alama-Francis, Jermey Parnell, Clifton Geathers and Thigpen as the third QB. Obviously, Misi will now definitely start. The Alama-Francis inactive is not expected. Hmmmm.]

[Update 2: Alama-Francis got sick this morning, which is the reason he is not playing today, The Herald's Jeff Darlington is reporting.]

[Update 3: The Dolphins are now confirming that Alama-Francis was expected to start this morning but is not playing because he got sick this morning.]

please i had it with the wilds....

inimouts they have prepared we havent. we need a little morefor it to be worth it. we have a down the field threat and we are
scarred to use hit. henning needs to be replaced wirh a coach that gors for it

sap living up to his name

deefense is on fire baby!!!

r defense got a new coach and look its aggresive. now lets do the same for the fins.

jills are so stiking lucky!!!

Damn...lost my feed that I had on JustinTv. Anyone know the link? Thanks

inimounts - how about that 2nd round pick we wasted for the wild crapt how do the other teams prepare for that?

following on NFL.com. looks like the D is holding, though the Bills O is ghastly. but offensively, seems like the same old approach, with zero execution on the few chances they take. it worked well when CP played flawless ball in 08, but Henne is a different QB. expected Hartline to be a bit more of a factor in the game plan, too.

anyway, i agree with what everyone says about Henning. never understood why he was retained.

also, what's this about Parcells' comments on Henne? when did this happen?

that was an INT!!!

not really impressed by smith rturn game

live feed anyone?



justintv shut down that channel. the others are spam channels

yeah bfish we dodnt donanyrhing wildcat before pat. idiot.

im sick kf theae incomplete passes!!! Jesus!!!!

any others not in Justin?

i did not realize we had only 1 receiver

im sick of these incomplete no ballsy plays!!!!

chunks, didnt u realize? we are up by thirty!

5-yd pass on 3rd and 11? Marshall, 8 catches, 50 yards? WTF?

do we need a punter?

good thing the defence is playing really wll

i domt know why everybodys so down on us! sparano told me we are uo by four scores.

insmounts - I will give it its due a couple of years ago, but it is no longer a surprise and to waste a 2nd round pick on it makes me sick. I would rather the teams prepare for extra talent instead of an old gimmick play.

haha!! i guess i mised that lol :P at least our D is doing well!!!

why do we wait to be down then go for it. like ny jets last year when ginn tore it up. i say go long right now. they wont expect it

Cmon need 7!

this game will hit 15 punts.

I need a live feed? Anyone. Gotta see if the Dolphins have another receiver besides Marshal

Whats the over under on punts?

we had a great one but sent him to minnesota

carey that was weak

they are making the jills look good, imagine how good they can make the wets look

i want to see more Henne to Bess!!

sweeeet!!... we do have two receivers!

alright dan! ... we needed that

is this going to be another 1 touchdown and a million field goals season again?

why is every game a stress test of my cardiovascular system?

so the pasing game works we get them to back up then we run it which works for the first two runs then we forget what opens up the run and guess what 4 and wgatever we dobt get seven. does henning know a td is more than a fg

good tb dan!


wow here we go again... drbruce2 gone are the days when we can watch a game without chest pains!

Go defense!

stick a fork in us!!

Oh Poop this doesn't look good

who plays to the level of their trash like we do? gooooo sparano


man that ws awesome go bills

4 and a 11..... we suck!!!!! lucky to win 7 games year another $300 wasted on nfl ticket!!!


How could you let parrish loose in a situation like this!!! Mad is not even the word


maybe henning can inspire us with another 3 and out series

glad I lost my live feed so I didn't have to witness that abomination!

it was 4 abd 13 and the bills came up with a play to score. why the freak cant we do that. i dont care what anyone says. we are in for it if we dont go for the td everytime. we play so freaking reserved it is disgusting.

who's winning?


great d for 3 quarters and 10 minutes
