« 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.

Mando, go yell at Henning please.

Dan Henning has got to be senile...what did he think was going to happen there?

I swear I am beginning to HATE the wildcat. Other teams run it better than us now.

I am this close to agreeing with the naysayers about the cat

time foe henning to adjust!!!!!!!

FML....Time to put that cat to sleep.

we dont have to worry about the pats stopping our offensive drives.. the offensive cooridinator is doing a fine job.. DA

R u kidding me??? The bleepin' Wildcat again? WTF!!!!

maybe Henne should refuse to run it. Leadership

I HATE DAN HENNING AND HIS WILDCAT!!!!!!!

Please, please please someone shoot the wildcat.

Henning is now just doing it because he's too proud to say he was wrong to say it still has a place in the offense! SO HARD-HEADED!

I hate the Wildcat ... I'd give back that awesome win in New England for the chance to never see the Wildcat come to fruition!

Sorry krut...my bad.

im still in shock

Please let that be the last Wildcat play in a long time.

Its like they like to kill drives
Henning trying to shutup fans and media

Where is sunglass man with a veto????

what a waste

hahahaha WTF this is a joke. HENNING NEEDS to go.
We were finding a rhythm in the passing game

Thanks Henning for killing another drive with the wildcat. It's time to put the wildcat in the archives.

am starting to hate the wildNOT. Great, timing?!?

The Coaches remain cowards - game day coaching matters, get rid of these bums... season after season at critical moments they put their heads in the sand.

Mando, why doesn't Sparano over rule that moron Henning?
