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.]

people hate him because hes a jet. deservedly so. no offense to jt.
henne is our qb. penne is not an nfl qb anymore. he limits us. abyone that would ask for him forgets that.

he beat the fullback

Need to get ball to Marshall!

Armando you are wrong. He didn't beat Long, he beat Polite.

Lousaka what a shame dude

wrong lobos its going to be a play action pass.

oh boy

henne just needs to relax. seems like hes amped up. calm down and play

we need jerry!!!!!!!!!!!!! pressure up the middle

yeah hennes awesome... im just negative

why do the dolphins refuse to go into shotgun?

our offense is hard to watch. all the wrong calls except for the first play. we need to keep spreading the field. keeping the safeties from creeping up.

Ok we need to go back to turnovers come on D!!!

Wrap up 51!

Can we PLEASE GET RID OF HENNING!!!!!!! WHY WOULDNT YOU PUT THE QB IN SHOTGUN ON 3RD and 16?????????????????????????????????

looks like our d has to score for us.

Guys give the JT comments a break. We made a decision to go with the young guys....let's back it. I never heard a single person sqwaking about JT the first two. Back off on the panic buttons.....please!!

Dolphins have Lionel Dotson and Quentin Moses in the game. Time for a change.

Our team just looks BAD! BAD, BAD, BAD

no tackles by dobbins again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Come on defense-we meed you to win again!!!

Henry ... "undecided" ... "indecided" is not a word ... sorry ... not much more to enjoy about his game than correcting others grammar. LMFAO!!!!!!

I predict Penny comes in at some point.

how many over the past three years has this team been killed by a tight end. last week again and tonight, AGAIN! come on!!!

you know whats amazing about our coaching? is that dustin keller will own us ALL night. they will do NOTHING to stop him. you watch.

Henne will not be the Dolphin QB next year, hell by the middle of the season he is gone. I've always said it he is not the answer.

Looks baddddddd
Need a momemtum changer

this looks painful

Dotson and Moses in???

Who is JT?

Henne plays like he is scared to death out there.

Is Gibril Wilson back?

PITIFUL

We're done tonight.

WHY CANT ANYONE COVER KELLER???????????????

i dont know if miami realized this but keller is pretty good and they might want to cover him

They only have one receiver can we cover him??? my god!!!

this is sad to watch

Hang in there men...hang in there

every TE in the NFL has their best games against our D... WTH!

boy this is getting uglier by the play!

jets playing like we should be playing

turnover time

Again-we're not covering Keller?

They are going to drive 90 yards on us.

Ted Ginn?

Shawn Smith continues to get burned.

y was keller wide open! same old dolphins?

is it just me or does Henne look messed up? like hungover or coked out or something he's pasty white and sweating bullets... Honestly one more three and out and bench him for Pennington he is a professional Henne looks like he is sick

Yeah ... I think we're done.

I like when Po White Trash and i give it to eachother in the bums

16 yrds in the first quater

somebody get edwards a drink...

At least Fat boy Solia is plugging the middle...That's about all the good so far...

Ok, edwards comes in, now keller can do whatever he wants.

S. Smith looks terrible like real bad terrible put B Sapp in at Nickel

dobbins is like having 10 men on the field

The Dolphins are home for the 1st time all season. They have nevers to work out.

The game is 60 min. not 15

Mando,

Where is Crowder?? Did i miss an update of him not playing?

i guess i should have bought a 12 pack instead of a 6 pack.
