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.]

OK, time to swing the Momentum back this direction.

We all know Henne is better rolling out of the pocket. But they never do it. That's all on Dan Henning.

Where's Crowder???

hahahaha

good job henning and morono

no chance

jets win by 28

i dont think anyone is over negative but henne has started 4 yrs in college and this is his 16th nfl start! i expect better

Who the heck is Mastrud?

Henne is definitely not on tonight so far.

geez henne

OK, Henne, someone needs to grab his facemask and shake it!

Can we put Ricky in as QB>

We got nothin'

MORE LIBATIONS!!! DRUGS, ANYTHING!!! Ok, game's not over. Let's go Dolphins. I HATE THE JETS BIASED MEDIA!!!!

Memo to NBC: There are two teams in this game, not one! Stop drooling over the stupid Jets!

where has bess been?

the beast is gonna click on henne ass with all these bad throws

Bess is money in the bank.

Bad throw
Great bess

3rd string guy making plays. I guess I can accept that.

Throwing high-throwing low-don't worry-you have a great line-Henne

go bess Mr 3rd down

there we go. henne is hitting uup

MANDO how long have helmets had glitter on them

Jets covering the run very well.

Come on line-knock them back

Oh boy

why the hell we insist on bringing rickie in so early in the game

damn jason

Go JT ... CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

wow, jason still got it. that huuuuurts

Taylor-sack-for wrong team!

JT beats Jake Long for a sack. and people hate him for that.

What about JT now.

Henne and Henning are holding this team back. Unreal

Putrid protection so far

3rd and 16...Let me guess. Running play.

sloppy sloppy sloppy come on

we should have kept JT

jt didnt beat long

Yeah, I can see why we thought JT was expendable...I expect to see 2 more of those, maybe an INT from him tonight

no JT beat Polite for the sack not Long

Armando, he beat the fullback, not Jake Long. Don't get your panties in a knot.

he beat a full back not Long

He did not beat Jake Long, Mando. What are you watching?

mando jt wish he beat long!! he beat polite!! have you been drinking already?

armando ur an idiot long wasnt even blockibg him

u know JT had to get out his system.

JT beat Polite for the sack, not Long.

That wasnt Long he beat.

Are u kidding me? I've been saying Henne is not the answer at quarterback. We won the first 2 games by defense, not offense. Henne is inaccurated, indecided, hold on the ball too long, get sack ....U don't sense any command, confidence while Henne is in the hurdle.

that person took their sign for JT down...dumbass. He just spit on all of you guys supporting him...lol

He beat a back not Jake Long

JT was supposed to be useless. I mean we only get rid of our totally useless players ... like Wes Welker, etc. LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!

THAT SAC GOES TO BILL PARCELLS

He didn't beat jake long...PAY ATTENTION

It wasn't Long moron, it was the fullback.

please get us a qb

can we have a new blogger plz?

JT beat Polite not Long
