« Is Jason Allen the truth or a fraud? We find out soon | Main | Dolphins lead Pats 7-0 going to 2nd quarter »

Live blog of Dolphins versus Pats here

The Dolphins are rockin' the aqua tops and white pants tonight on Monday Night Football. The field is rockin' real sod again following last night's season-finale for the Florida Marlins. That means there are strange, brown, uneven patches from about the 30 yard line going in to the west end zone here at Sun Life Stadium.

I expect a high-scoring game.

I simply don't see how the Patriots will be able to stop the Dolphins running game. I know they will try. I know they will present multiple fronts that could include the dreaded eighth defender. But I just think the Dolphins have seen so much of it, they will be able to move the ball on the ground if they stick to it.

I also think the Dolphins will be able to pass the ball. The Patriots have shuffled their defensive backfield this week, benching both cornerback Darius Butler and safety Brandon Meriweather. They can be exploited.

And, obviously, I think the Patriots will be able to move the ball on Miami. I think Tom Brady can find the holes in the Miami secondary but the truth is the Patriots now think themselves something of a good running team with Benjarvus Green-Ellis in the backfield.

They think they can run it against a Miami team that has given up over 140 rushing yards each of the past two weeks and doesn't like putting eight men in the box.

So what do you have when all this comes together?

Points!

I could be wrong, but it's hard to argue with the logic. We'll see.

Come back here for the updates on the inactives. The live blog starts in the comment section below. See you there.,

Somebody juice up them Prunes with some V I A G R A!

Has Anyone Seen How Fat Sparano Is On Madden 2011?!? They Got To Fix That, Man. He Is Lterally Half That Size Now! If I Was Tony, I'd Be Pissed!

Lets Rock-n-Roll!!!

Go phins. Huge game!!! I hope they are focused.

ok lets go phins!!!

no need at all for Henne to struggle tonight. he could put rocking chair back there and still get off! will be a fun game to watch. unfortunately for us, Pats 38 Fins 34. We still aint that good defensively people. i fear Moss and welker will go off unabated tonight. hope im wrong.

awesome i guess that means francis is back. Do you think he will play a lot tonight?

wish i was there GO FINS

I updated the post with the inactives.

I think we will be plugging in a bunch of Nickle packages and force the Patriots to beat us with the run.

I just hope we dont become too conservative early on and run,run and run even more. I want to see Henning take the handcuffs off Henne tonight cus we all saw what Henne can do with Marshall,Hartline,Bess and Fasano in the passing game.

by the way, you know how I wrote that we find out about Jason Allen in the last post?

We will also be finding out about Benny Sapp. He will be covering Wes Welker much of this evening.

There's a song by the WHO that our defense needs to play by:

Tommy can you hear me? (I gonna sack you beeaatch)

Can you feel me near you? (coming to rip your head off)

Wilkford!

Sorry "BABEY BOUYYY"! C'mon "BABEY BOUYYY"!

Why not us!

Go Phins!

Whatever the Jets did in the 2nd half of their game against NE......let's do that!

No wildcat

Hit Brady in the mouth early and often/

armando- im attending the steelers game later this month and wanna get thevestexperience possible. to meet a player or two would be amazing. any suggestions??

Good call on Sapp, Mando.

I would love to beat the Pats at home and go to 3-1, but, I have an odd, uncomfortable feeling that we'll be 2-2 going into the bye...Hope I'm wrong, but, without Crowder, Jerry, and Odrick I think we have too many gaps.

If I was making the gameplan it would involve getting Brown the ball 25+ times, running, catching balls out of the backfield. Get him the ball...

Yes, pressure on Brady is needed real bad!
Also if we are in the red zone i want to see at least two passes to Marshall...none if this stuff like vs the ouke jets with one lousy throw to him inside the 10

Please God!

PLEASE!!!!

I need this one BAD!!!!

how great will it be if we go into the bye 3-1. we would have a lot to build on going into the teeth of our schedule.

Is Tere Any Way To Watch The Game Online? Any Good Websites

channelsurfing.net

Yes Dave...we absolutely need this win..as Mando and others have said, this will determine the "direction" of our season

Mickey Shuler is the No. 2 TE tonight.

Dolphins might be in a lot of double tights tonight.

Y. Bell- 1 pic
J. Allen- 1 pic
C. Wake- 1 sack
K. Misi- 1 Sack
R. Starks-1 sack
R. Brown- 2 tds
B Hartline- 1td
B. Marshall-1td

Feeding the Wolf Babey Bouyyy!

Go Phins!

Double tights are good..but i think our 3 wide needs to be used more...agree?

Bradu is only 3-5 against the Dolphins. SweeT, timwe to make it 3-6,

This is the perfect night for Henne's 10th victory!

STOP LIVING IN THE PAST, THE JETS ARE THE FUTURE, COMPLETE DOMINATION , THE TOP DOG IN THE AFC !
GO J-E-T-S ,JETS,JETS,JETS, SUPERBOWL BOUND :)

You wish poser...you cant say sheet lil boy. your team will collapse, trust me

that's what I would want, cowkilla. But we don't make that call.


I would love to tell you guys the Dolphins are going to open up the offensive and go all Space Age passing game on teams. But that is not what Tony Sparano wants to do fundamentally.

season is on the line

If there's one thing marc knows about it's filling a gap..........

Absolutely cowkilla. Like to see them load one side.

True Mando, I dont want 3 wide all the time, maybe just a little bit more than usual to shock these redcoats

going to 3-1 into the bye! go fins!

I think with the O personnel we have..we could be feared in the 3 wide

STOP LIVING IN THE PAST, THE JETS ARE THE FUTURE, COMPLETE DOMINATION , THE TOP DOG IN THE AFC !
GO J-E-T-S ,JETS,JETS,JETS, SUPERBOWL BOUND :)

Hey Cuban...dont put that negative feeling out there my friend, stay positive brutha

Just saw the Geico caveman on the VIP walkway at sunlife, Is he now a owner too????, Mando, please check this out......

I don't care if we use Mouse Davis's run and shoot offense, just WIN!

Like I said I'm ready to go...Like I said...Like I said we just got to play our game...Like I said...trust our game plan...Like I said...make our reads...Like I said...WIN THIS GAME!!! LIKE I SAID!

Go Dansby! Go Phins!

Sorry marc, Couldnt help myself... :(

tommyac, I cannot tell you how you could guarantee yourself meeting players to get autographs. I know folks wait outside the player parking lot after the game and players stop when they win. But again, no guarantees.

Anybody get help for tommy?

ARPAS...no one is listening to you..we know the truth about your g a y team...you will know also as the season goes on. sancheezz will set the nfl record for INT's...bleed dat

pound the ball, wear them out in the heat. win this game in the 4th qt. this is a must win. pats have lost 7 of last 8 road games, no excuses here. should win this game if we are a team to be feared. if not season is basically lost

I Wonder if Ross talked to Jon Gruden today????

There are a few places to watch online but it is illegal so they keep switching the URL's around. My buddy found one last week because he got stuck at work on sunday...but that site is gone already

Cuban,

It's all part of being a fan lately. It's all about to change Bro. Tonight this team starts putting all 3 phases together. Look for a plus 3 on the turnover margin.

Domination of the Dolphin! Begins tonight!

Cuban No!!!!!!!! we dont want gruden as a coach down the road...he ended up ruining tampas squad via the draft and bad coaching decicions

Man nfl network has an unfocused camera when they talked to sparano under the stadium just now

Mando, What's the injury report(Besides always injured Channing(Lance Armstong)Crowder) ???

I wonder which side of the ball will show up tonight...

The Offense (Terribly conservative against the Bills and Vikings but great against the Jets) or the Defense (Great against the Bills and Vikings but awful against the Jets)?

Lets hope the Offense and Defense is awesome but that almost never happens...

The BEAST! WILL DINE ON "YAC" TONIGHT!

Go Phins!

[Update: The Dolphins inactives are Channing Crowder, Jared Odrick, John Jerry, Jeron Mastrud, Marlon Moore, Robert Rose, Patrick Brown, with Tyler Thigpen the third QB.]

there ya go cuban my friend

It's our pre-game show and they're talkin' about the JETS!

Sigh...

That info was copied off of Mando's blog.
i like the L Armstrong name for can of chowder
