« 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.,

[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.]

Dan Henning, what's the play, "well, let's go with the Wildcat, then maybe Ronnie up the middle for 3 yards, then who knows? let me call my wife for a play" Suckage to the supreme . . .

Losing 2 games in a row to division rivals at home spells doom

Belicheat will have something that Henne has never seen...could be trouble

It's obvious who the NFL wants to win this game. Even the commentators are talking about the bad calls going against Miami.

henning and that idiot special teams coach got to go

Does henne ever look off his primary reciever?

get rid of the special teams coach for gods sake. how many times do they have to get smoked??? this team has no stones...

fish can't hang even if we score it will take 10min and tb will take it back in 2

ALL DOLFANS SHOULD MAKE A LINE IN FRONT OF THE OWNER ROSS OFFICE AND DEMAND YOUR MONEY BACK !

gfidude, you're hilarious man, I'm laughing my *ss off at your posts.

cool, i'll keep em coming :)

ok this drive looks good

i'm pissed i bought the nfl ticket.... but i feel for the poor saps who bought season tickets!!!!!

Call me cynical, but you know that the maxium amount of points the Dolphins can score on this drive is 8...that being said, the Patsy are going to shove the 130lb Woodhead down our throats on their next drive

if they have any chance they MUST score on this drive and then get a stop...waiting for the D to make a play. It would be nice if they showed up in the 2nd half

Defense needs to make a play already, you gotta pressure Brady if you want to have a chance

i got the ticket too. cant see any games out here in cali

maybe if the D can pull thier skirts up they can stop woodhead...... NOT!!!!!!

nice block by polite

ssssstalllllll - blocked FG coming up

wow Bess on a 3rd down? who would've a thunk it?

CALL PENNINGTON TO THE GAME NOW , PLEASE SOMEONE HELP THIS LOWLY FINS !

CAN ANYBODY IN THE STAND PLAY QUATERBACK?

God i'm good!!!!! fish suck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! go ST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ST coach needs a raise

blocked FG? who would've seen that coming out of this special teams unit? seriously, anyone know who the special teams coach is? I guarantee you'll know tomorrow at 12 when they announce his firing

are you fkng kidding me? this is one of the most embaressing games i have ever seen.

what date is the draft?

IF THEY DON'T FIRE THE F..ING STR COACH I WILL BECOME A WETS FAN
FISH SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THEY WERE LUCKY TO BEAT THE JILLS
THEY ARE NOTEVEN IN THE SAME CALS ASE THE JILLS
IS THERE A POP WARNER TEAM WE CAN GET TO PALY FOR THE BLOW FISH????????????????????????

complete and utter breakdown of every section of the game....

Been watching football for more than 30 years... two kick blocks is pretty rare.

Kudos to Pats... Good games by Chung and Ninkovich. We blow...

See my earlier posts about concern and coaching deficiencies.

Very sad display on national tv. Once again this team is out coached. Too many breakdowns. This is more than a talent issue. Will we ever again have a coach who knows what he is doing. What a waste.

Can you say 6-10 and 8th pick in the draft?

A complete fiasco...no mas!!!!!!!!

man it sucks to be a FINS fan tonight..embarrassing ourselves on Monday night.

Obviously, we're not ready for Prime Time. I got all excited from the way we started, but I'm quickly reverting to my preseason prediction...8-8. Average.

Wow....two straight lousy games at home AND on national tv...get back on the road....

how bout Thigpen, Pennington, some guy from the stands?.....

this is worst special teams performance perhaps in the history of pro football. and the ridiculous part is that isn't even hyperbole

Good call BFish... you had it right...LOL

With the eighth pick in the draft Miami selects, LB ___________?

the bad special teams has been like this since last year. WTF

THe whole coaching Staff needs to go. This is an embarassment, not even the Bills special teams is this horrible. We can't win at home and its sickening.

LOLPHINS continue to stink, no big surprise...

Sorry Miami maybe next year

Look at the positive side, now you can enjoy spending time with your family and friends on Sundays instead of wasting 4 hrs of your life watching these overpaid millionaires get their brains beat in

HISTORY IS MADE WITH THESE LOWLY FINS TONIGHT !

THEY ARE BREAKING ALL KINDS BAD STATS SINCE THE NFL WAS CONCEIVED, LOL :)

130lb Woodhead down Your throats !

GO J-E-T-S-SUPERBOWL BOUND :)

oh no we suck again!

This team is going nowhere. A coach with a loud bark who is clueless, no special teams and no offense...

LOSE THE MOBSTER COACH, I ALWAYS DEFENDNED HIM BUT THIS IS ALL ON HIM AND HE IS NOT TAKING THIS TEAM ANYWHER I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THE WINDBAG RYAN RIGHT NOW
BLOWFISH SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ST ANOTHER TOUCH BACK

coaching is horrible. no excuse for the special teams melt down. if sporano does nor fire the special teams coach then he should be fired

Yet another low point in this team's frustrating history. I am thankful for having sold sodas at the Orange Bowl-- still the REAL Dolphin stadium-- from 1970-1973. I have never witnessed such a pathetic performance in a single phase of a football game as the Dolphins special teams tonight. Truly redefining the term special.

They should have fired Bonamego 2 years ago. We were dominating this game other than our stupid mistakes. Same as last week with the Jets.

All you f@ggy little Jets fans should show up in person some time to talk all your nonsense about the Fins. Naw, you are probably too tired from smacking around your girlfriends. What a bunch of losers coming to another team's blog to say idiotic things.

I am sorry you were bullied by all the big guys in school but you should get some counseling.

Henning's solution during bye week.....more WILDCAT plays!!!!!

what a total embarrassment for the whole organization . . . unfreaking believable!!!!! this is coaching and personnel, who do we blame for that? hmmm, NOT Parcells, right? he's untouchable, come on media, get him to answer some f-ing questions already!!!

2-14 AT LEAST THE BLOW FISH WILL GET A HIGH DRAFT PICK TO BLOW..... I KNOW LETS RE-DRAFT GINN OR MAYBE PAT WHITE...... WHAT A BRAIN TRUST

FISH SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't seen a sloppier team in a long time

total joke. this was an issue in preseason. sporano is responsible. his fault as head coach. i run my own business and profit loss is the game. well win loss is this game and sporano is so far this year a joke

Best thing to do when you are down 20 in the fourth quarter is to of course run draws up the middle. Horrible. This is a season killer.

Perhaps this is why Parcells is bailing.

What guru are they gonna get next as coach?

What was Sparano's claim to fame anyway?

Remember... this was Parcell's first gig as an administrator... maybe it's not his thing... a lot of the player personnel decisions were average.

hey look at the bright side. We found a way to keep Brady off the field.

AT LEST I WILL GET MY SUNDAYS BACK....... I AM DONE WATHING THESE CLOWNS

FISH SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now its time for lolphins fans to look up some excuses for this embarrassing lost to the Pats.


I almost miss Nick Saban . . . not, miss Wannstache . . .lol
