Live blog of Dolphins versus Jets starts here

I'm at the stadium and we're up and running for the live blog that begins around game time tonight. [Update: The Jets have announced at 7 p.m. this evening that Braylon Edwards, arrested for DWI earlier in the week, will be benched for the first quarter tonight verus the Dolphins.]

In other news, let me tell you the sod that was put down to cover the Marlins infield looks better than just having the actual dirt. It is an improvement. But is it perfect? Nope.

There are brown (not important) and uneven (very important) patches, particularly from the sideline to the near hashmark around the two-yard-line near the Jets sideline. There is one area that seems lower than the rest. Having said that, I still think the players will prefer this treatment of the field than having to play in the dirt.

I'm here nearly three hours before kickoff and the conditioning and weight training coaches are putting tight end Mickey Shuler Jr. through conditioning drills. That doesn't suggest he's playing. That suggests the team isin't thrilled with his conditioning and wants to get him ready.

As most of you will watch this game on television, let me tell you what to expect:

NBC's Football Night in America preview will include a Bob Costas interview with both Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez. Shockingly, both defend the Jets image.

Costas: Are you comfortable with the team’s image? The profile is much higher than it would otherwise be because the cameras followed you through training camp. Your coach is a charismatic guy with more than a little bit of bravado about him. So this is a team, which really hasn’t had that much success, but has a pretty high national profile.

Sanchez: That’s part of playing in this market, part of being a New York Jet. We love wearing that logo. It’s really important to us to represent that logo the right way. With the freedoms Rex gives us, be smart about what we do, on and off the field.

Costas: You’re a glamorous single guy playing a glamour position in New York City. (Sanchez laughs). There’s a lot of people who want you, in addition to putting up wins, they want you to be a certain kind of personality. You comfortable with that?

Sanchez: I’ve got to be me. I’ve learned that you don’t get those opportunities outside of this building without playing good football. That’s one of the best things Rex has told me about handling anything outside of this building. Just be yourself. Be the guy we drafted, No. 5 overall. Be our leader. And protect the team with what you say, how you act and what you do on the field.

[BLOG NOTE; Come back in a few and I'll give you the update on inactives and anything else that is happening out here in Orangeville.]

[Final Update: The inactives are John Jerry, Jared Odrick, Mickey Shuler Jr., Ikaika Alama-Francis, Marlon Moore, Patrick Brown, and Tyler Thigpen as the No. 3 QB.]

Mike W, But he has more gas then can be exported from any Arab Nation......

his voice has changed but his breath smells the same LOL

Writer, Sorry, Iam a cuban everthing is "QUE"(What?) To me...lol

gas at it's for 10 years.3;15 dollars .so rex can feel free to use it at well .

i thought denver would have a big game after the week they have had.

but dang alot of yards for just 13 pts

gas at it's low for 10 year at 3;15 bucks ,so rex can feel free to use at well .

Heard that Rex(The Human garbage disposal)Ryan eat a restaurant last nite in Ft.Lauderdale last nit, Not everthing in the place but actually devoured the building too.... Mando, Can you get a "scope" On this possible story??

cuban,

OAK IS LOSING BY 4...the yellow eyes are working

since he will sit for the 1st quarter i see him coming in cold, resulting in an INT, count on it

So John Jerry will miss today?

Real punishment being administered there huh????Not shocked though, just goes to show the animals run the zoo, that's all...

i disagree we missed big on not signing Drew.

Odin, Cuban, glad you enjoyed....!!! LOL

Mando
1 Are you and the Hearld Media all wearing Orange?
2. Do you'll all sit with the rest of the media in the press box or do you'll have a suite?

Please put Karlos Dansby on Dustin Keller.
I'm tired of gettin' burned by TE's.

I miss Jared Odrick.

Wish Lousaka Polite had a bigger role on offense.

Hope to see Vontae as pumped as he was last week.

Oh my God it is sickening to watch every media television just talk about the Jets the entire time. They forget about the Miami Dolphins, but worry no longer Dol Fans, they will not forget us after tonight! Lets go fins...FEED THE WOLF!

WHO'S DREW ?

i hope we use the wildcat tonight. i hope we let the leash off henne. i hope we let b marsh go deep more and i hope we pressure sanchez. this game
is huge.

Watching Football night in america, And I see too that NBC is carry the Company(NFL) tow line, Its all JETS,JETS,JETS, Sickning...

R EXPRESS....DO YOU COACH SOCCER ?

"Writer, Sorry, Iam a cuban everthing is "QUE"(What?) To me...lol (Cuban)

I KNOW that...lol,,
I may have posted here at one time I spent 21 turbulent years...birth thru 21 in Miami..MHS, UM...mojo de ajo is my middle name. lol
Those little pastries with the guava...

OK....Rex sees us in orange...does he order the entire Jests team back into the locker, where they change in to those hideous faux NY Titans uni's they wore against us 3 years ago? haha.
Coles (the Fin killer) and Penny had their way with us that day.
I was depressed for a month.

cuban, according to their collective bargainning agreement, they can't bench him for a whole game. But i'm sure they wouldn't since that works out in their favor. The jets can claim they could be fined for abrogating his rights, but we all know they want to play him anyway....just glad he didn't hurt anyone!

some guy that plays for Saints i think

I hope inimounts leave the coaches coach and he enjoys his pork hot dog .

Po White dinglelicker, good to see yer here.

Go phins

i thought you meant drew beldsoe

I Still say that Tony Dungee still looks like the Uncle you dont want your small children near........

F*** NBC and all their biased NY Bull S*** will make it all that sweeter

not until we win monday nite next week will they respect the dolphins!!!!!!!!!!! you would think they would know by now but its easy to pick the same five teams every year,when history says that the same teams that make the playoffs last year dont necessarily make it the the next year! we played every game to the end hardly ever if ever besides falcons game got blowed out!!! i dont see the love for the jets when their offense is hit and miss!! the qb is still garbage and dont see him improving besides the occasional game here and there! but whatever let them keep sleeping on the dolphins!! i bet the players know!!!!!!!!!!!

F*** NBC and all their biased NY Bull S*** will make it all that sweeter

TESTIFY MY BROTHER...........

test the donkey ball licking douche bag.

Good to see ya here!

Sheesh, Edwards spanked for a quarter. Nice message that sends. Hopefully, he'll make up for the missed 1st quarter drops.

Lets hope no one on either side suffers a hammy or knee injury due to the pseudo turf tonight. Except maybe Rex. LOL

the yellow eyes .M.VICK COULD BE THE ...MVP

Cuban,

He also looks like the weird uncle you wouldn't want around a jar of peanut butter or any house pets!

Glad i'm under your skin.

meant to say, "hope he makes up for the 1st quarter drops with extra 2nd quarter drops."

cuban, you see that CHIN on tony, looks like the chin on the Wicked Witch on the Wizard of Oz! His profile would scare any kid! Anyway, he has never been a Miami fan.

Po White Inbreed.

Your mom says "hi"
of course, it wasn't as clear as that, if ya know what i mean.

test the donkey ball licking douche bag.

Good to see ya here!

Posted by: Po White Trash | September 26, 2010 at 07:14 PM

LOL at po.... You know people pay money in Mexico to see such things.......

i wish all 53 regulars for the jets were active today!! the last thing we need are excuses!! ala the wildcat or 2 returns by ginn!! all the planes will do is make excuses!! oh yea it shouldnt be a surprise that vontae is balling!!! didnt randy moss give him props last year first?

Its funny after week one every one in media was ready to bail on jets.Week 2 they put up points on a patriots D that gave up 30 to buffalo today and there media superbowl picks again LMAO

cuban, according to their collective bargainning agreement, they can't bench him for a whole game. But i'm sure they wouldn't since that works out in their favor. The jets can claim they could be fined for abrogating his rights, but we all know they want to play him anyway....just glad he didn't hurt anyone!

That not true , the jets can bench him the entire game if they want as long as he's paid !!

I just feel bad the piece of sh*t is banging my mother.

Yuck!

More power to ya, give her hell.
