« Jared Odrick update and the game breakdown | Main | Packers lead Dolphins 10-7 to start second quarter »

Live blog from Lambeau Field

(In your best John Facenda voice rising over NFL Films music) Lambeau Field ... It soars into the air out of an otherwise ordinary residential neighborhood. It smells great around here because the folks really know how to tailgate.

And today, it could be the site of the Dolphins most impressive victory of the season so far.

Think about that. Let it marinate.

The Dolphins are treading water at 2-2. But as I wrote in the column I wrote in today's Herald, Miami has hope they can still be champions because, well, there are no great teams in the NFL this season. Please check out the column as it tells you in Brandon Marshall's and Yeremiah Bell's own words what they think of their chances.

For both players to be correct, today is a big day. The Dolphins have won on the road twice already but, let's be honest, this opponent offers a much greater challenge than either Buffalo (0-5) and Minnesota (1-3). The Packers are Super Bowl contenders, if you ask anyone around here, and they have won three times as many games already as Miami's previous two opponents combined.

And unlike Miami's previous opponents, these Packers have a complete passing game. That, in my opinion, is the greatest untapped weakness of the Miami defense. Yes, teams have run the ball with some success. But it's the pass defense that definitely worries me. We'll see today -- with Aaron Rodgers at QB for Green Bay -- how that defense holds up.

Jared Odrick is in the house, folks. I'll have an update on his game status along with the inactives as soon as they're available. And, of course, we'll have the live blog at kickoff.

[Update: Odrick and John Jerry are inactive. Randy Starks is starting at RE while Paul Soliai continues as the starting NT. Pat McQuistan will start at right guard ... The complete list of inactives is Marlon Moore, Thigpen as the No. 3 QB, Austin Spitler, Robert Rose, Patrick Brown, Jerry, Jeron Mastrud and Odrick.

For the Packers, the only inactive you need to care about is that Clay Matthews is on the list. He's out.]

Here we go, it's a game!

Is anyone surprised? Happens ever single time.

Alrrrriiiiiiiggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhtttttttttttttttt MIAMI!!!

who got burned

Vontae got burned...

Davis

wtf? comeback to the ball!

this team is its own worst enemy. BTW where is the pass rush Nolan was supposed to create?

Now it feels like a Miami Dolphins game. Interception then 1 play 86yd td drive. Usually when it's too good to be true, IT IS!!!

I got nothing to say...why cant we draw up an over the top play for a 64 yrd TD? At a loss for words.....

There was my predicted fake reverse.

Exactly what I expect from the Dolphins. Huge mistakes by their regressing QB and cant cover. Just pathetic. Give it up losers - time to cheer for the Heat.

Caught Vontae with a double-move, he shoulda had help. Nice return

Henne is locked on his receivers. No look off.

That's it-game over-one play-going to the same play over and over-well at least we blocked the extra point-what no body even attempted again-why-oh forget it 85 yards in one play takes us 11 plays!

haha where you guys really expecting better? AGAIN classic dolphins football

Bell Busted the Coverage. Damn. Got to stop their momentum.

14-3 oops no cant relax we cant go ahead by that much its freakin impossible we have to totally break down and get behind. this sucks. henn i like you kid but quit freakin staring down your recivers.

Vontae looked like a kid there....

ah theres tortu.
Wondering where he was as he lurked in the the corner for the first half hour...hoping something bad would happen so he could show us how "smart" he is....lmao
What a loser due....(wait checking to see if i used any big words that TD would have to look up...nope good on this one...)

what a pathetic excuse for a franchise...cursed since Shula left....regime change & qb search comng up for the XXXX time

Classic loser fish. LMFAO.

someone needs to hit rodgers too.

does miami give up the quickest td drives eva or what?

they better get that back. henne you need to step up now.

Henne keeps making the same mistakes. Keeps throwing drive killing ints. Obviously he doesn't get it. Sanchez > Henne.

Mando, i know you wont respond because you never do but when will you admit that this team and coach are simply mediocre? it is evident that Henne is average at best and always will be and D has NO talent other than Davis and Dansby.

Who the F is coaching Henne? That's ridiculous, a 2nd year corner making a play on Marshall because of a poorly thrown ball. You stupid tw0t Henne!

armando, still thinking this game will define henne as our premier QB. Those INT's sure have hurt us.

Mando-I thought a good receiver earned safety help along with the cornerback-oh and Ronnie is dancing again!

If some player or franchise has a milestone or a new resord to break...well come play us we will make sure you get it!

Terrible call!

THE SECOND QUARTER POST IS UP. PLEASE GO THERE NOW FOR THE CONTINUATION OF THE LIVE BLOG.

Nice call by your douche bag OC. A toss on 3rd and short. Pathetic fish fry.

All I'm saying is that most of the players that have some sort of career best, it's usually against the dolphins. It's like last time the NE play for special teams was like one of the best in history.. agains the phins. Now this guy gets his longest TD in his career. Against the phins. You know what, at least I'm going to watch this team for comical relief, I'm sick of being a dolphins fan-- I'm convinced henne sucks major a ss

i absolutely love when they need 2 yards and they pitch it back 5 yards to get it

game over!!!

a pitch left???? henning please choke on your hotdog today

Anybody have a working link to the game ? Tried all the other ones posted, none worked. Would be greatly appreciated.

im gonna be sick

And we can't get a first down on 3rd and 2.
And another punt almost blocked! We're on a roll now, as usual.

seriously....how the f**k can we allow SOOOO many special teams blocks???

that was fuking carpenter again. take that POS's helmet and send that fuker packing.

Mando, Fields seems like the slowest punter ever. Do you see that real time? Is this guy scared or something, it's like he's in replay speed.

wont you all dont know about tortu is he is a huge phin fan...he im's me during the game on how well Ronnie and Henne is doing and then uses this venue (look it up TD) to vent his frustrations.....but ill keep you updated on what he is REALLY saying....

Campinter! Same thing as the game against the Pats. He's the hole in special teams. There you go guys, you've got your guy.

3rd punt blocked in last 2 weeks-6th best line can't stop tackling behind the line-interception-no defensive take aways-except for Green Bay

I'm a classic ASS-HOLE Jets fan

lebowski...its shomershabbas.com

atleadt that wasnt the blocking he took forever to punt that


Brando Fields is taking forever to punt the ball...come on man kick it already.

Carpenter NEEDS to gey CUT period...

Carpinter*

jeff www.boxlive.tv/channels/sportsno1vipstand

actually it looks like it was the same guy that missed the block, at least it was the same spot that the other blocks came in through-- I think westoff was right. There's a weak link in special teams and the whole NFL knows about it now. Interesting to analyze the progress, or lack there of, of a professional football team-- if that's what you call the dolphins

Nothing has changed.

1. Henne sucks.

2. Henning sucks.

3. Special Teams suck.

at least luck is coming our way on this punt. Go Dolphins!!!! Go Henne!!!!

Ah, Carpenter responsible, again, for a tipped/blocked punt. Guess he's the guy Westhoff was talking about

lmao @cowkilla...nice, now can I get a link ?

you forgot...carpenter sucks!!!
