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.]

YEAP! It's ALL about the jerks, i mean jets, the Dolphins need to destroy them! I'll give any player a bonus if they run out of bounds and knocks down FAT REX!

Having a hard time keeping my food down, cant imagine hiw Sanchez wont hurl his hot dog!!

Ha @ Cuban Menace...Don't worry, he will get to know Cameron Wake really well...

HEY EVERYONE. Armando hows the energy around the stadium? I can feel the excitement all the way up here in st. aug. Guess that means roberto wallace is active today? his speed and size could be very useful tonight. GO PHINS!!!!

Odds on Sanchez throwing a "PICK-6" ???????I say 3 to 1.......

I like that match up.

wallace is #4 WR

davidjneal twitter

Braylon shaved his beard thank god!!

Had a dream last night that Chad Henne threw 3TDs for 306YDs and the Dolphins won by about 10. Lets hope my dream comes true and this Dolphin Team is not the 2.0 version of the '98-'02 Dolphins.

no not "bitchin dave" unless maybe you ask my wife. but not that i know of

Jason Taylor came onto the field to a big non-reaction from fans. Interesting.

His 94th game in this stadium. First as a visitor.

The World shall see.
The Dolphins are Foreal.

28-9. Fins Win


ITS OUR TIME!!!!

Booooooooooooooo!

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Now Let me see if I got this right, A team that won there last 2 regular season games by playing the opponents scrubs and wins a play-off game by beating a team that had 8 1st stringplayers out with injurie, They get rid of there best offensive player and add a bunch of "OLD" vets(Tomlinson,Taylor,Cromartie who sucks), And have a coach that cant lose weight even after surgery(Lap-band),Has a QB that had one of the worst turnover to TD ratio ever, AND THEY THINK THERE SUPER BOWL BOUND????????????????, I must be in Bizarro world.......

I hope this is Taylors last game.

are you upset mando?


fins win 35-13

Armando,

Get a chant going QUICK!

Traitor!

Traitor!

Traitor!

TRAITOR!!!!

Jason who???

I hope we get off to a better start than the Niners did the other vs. the Saints.

i think a non reaction is the right call cant boo cuz his past cant applaud cuz hes a jet

Hopefully every team will underestimate the Dolphins....and the Dolphins will respond with a win.....again boob costas and fat rex. after the following commercial breaks!

UNLEASH THE BEAST!!!!
THEN FEED HIM THE WOLF FIRST!!!

ITS OUR TIME!!!!

Brad Smith starts at WR in place of Braylon Edwards for Jets.

im sick of everyone on the jets jock. we need to crush them so people shut up about them.

why is the whole pregame focused on the jets?

Upset Dolphin4Life? Let's see, I'm at a football game. I'm getting paid to be here. They are feeding me free food, and drink and ice cream.

Upset? I don't think so.

Mando, u r a smart scholar, so tell me, how does one staple his stomach

MORE JETS,JETS,JETS on NBC, I Guess there towing the company logo, God I hope they beat these guys......
