« 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.]

Another major injury for the Pack. Getting easier, playing 3rd stringers now. Like the Dallas pre-season game - our 1st string against their bench.

Time to dominate

Throw the red flag Tony!

Challenge the spot!

Are the refs blind with that spot?

challenge it

challenge! thats a joke

How is that call possible,

WE WERE ROBBED !!!!

My boyfriend is putting on our matching pink Jets shirts, illness back

Cut Sean Smith !

Refs are horrible, even with review they screw it up. Pathetic

what a shame. Go Dolphins!!!! Go Henne!!!!

misi

do your job ref. charge us a TO because you are an idiot? at least we dont cry about it like rodgers


Green Bay fielding a High School team out there..we should be up 10.

we need to hold 'em on 3rd down

Ref should kill himself. that mistake could be a huge game changer.

Funny, I'm watching this game with a Pats fan here, and even he admitted that was a first down.

That is some game changing BS.

need a big stop - can't let them score!!!

Benny sapps gotta chill, he's tipping off the blitzes

Sapps blitz was worthless.

at least we held 'em to 3. Now the offense NEEDS to score a TD!

How about a 50-yard run back? Why doesn't that ever happen to us?

need a 10 min TD druve

NICE Carroll!

cant let them hang around...need a quick drive TD

sptaylor, we really need a slow TD drive. Take up time AND score, that would put pressure on them.

nice to know that davis can take down a receiver all on his own. vontae is the man

No passes please.Run Ricky Run.

DC Dolfan, I hear you but id love for us to go up by 2 possesions. We just let teams hang around until the last minute and then disaster

Man I sorry but the coaching staff sucks and Im sorry but Chad Henne is not read y to start yet. You can clearly tell in his play. It seemed as though getting Marshall was a bad idea because thats the only person he throws too. If you watch the replay he is only looking at Marshall. Im sorry but even though Pennington has a messed up arm I think we will be in a better position than we are now lol. We should be blowing this team out. We should have blown the Patriots out.

We did not need a 3-and-out!

yeah agreed. hold them

Your hearts are going to be torn to shreds in a minute. Thats always the case with this team.

Who aee we playing next?P........

green bay is a playoff team, we're an 8-8 team, on the road, this game won't be won by 2 scores.

WAKE!!

Let's face it we are our own worst enemy, and I'm beginning to think it's the entire coaching staff

We should have run the ball three straight times and we don't, we pass twice and run once

Thank god for Wake

not much of a playoff team today though

20 yards and we can kick a field goal AT LEAST! That should be the offenses goal!

Do we even have a TE?

Again we we pass first, WTF

Why Empty backfield on 3rd and short every time W T F

nice punt. Go Dolphins!!!! Go Henne!!!!

WOW

Payback for that earlier call.

henne needs to work on his giveaway stares. we have one receiver on, 3 decoys bc henne already knows who he is throwing to before the snap

HUGE! lets capitalize boys!!!

shady penalty that makes up for us getting robbed on the prior 4th and 1

There's FASANO!

theres our TE!

Where has that been all year......Nice call Henning and nice throw Henne

sptaylor, who called it buddy. Might be the nail in the coffin!

respect Henne boys he took a major shot!!!

Grounding........

Ok, seriously, WHY waste that timeout? Defense wasn't that tired.

Why no intentinal grounding? Then Smith drops one nice

Wow look at Henne go. he doesn't need a lesson. Oh let him play. Wow I guess you want to win the easy games. Henne is looking good like always. I guess I was wrong.

The defense basically seals the deal with a stop here. FOR ONCE!

what is an easy game? i havent seen one of those in years! hold em here boys
