« 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.]

Listening online to the Dolphin radio play by play. Cefalo not in booth tonight. Dick Stockton calling game with Rose and Mad Dog. Anyone know why ?

I think Cefalo is awful so it sounds great ... no offense Jimmy.

can someone answer this QUESTIONS, Why in the Hell did we even sign MARSHALL???

this is why we still have done nothing in OVER 4O FREAKING YEARS...........WHAT A JOKE THIS FRANCHISE IS........

the wild cat ooooooooooooooo so scary

"They need to take the wildcat to the Miami zoo"

That's gotta be the best/smartest thing jaws has ever said!

STOP THE WILDCAT!!!!!!

I HATE THE WILDCAT SO MUCH!!!! JAWS AND GRUDEN WERE 100% RIGHT: PUT IT ON ICE. GODDAMN IT.

Remmember we dont get the ball back after the half this time!!!

WIDCAT KILLS NICE DRIVE.......LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

haha i laughed at the post till i saw wildcat

Dolphins rushing only two players on that play -- Randy Starks and Kendall Langford.

I like the 2 man rush...play coverage.

FUCKCAT

Dobbins doing a clam chowder wrong gap impersanation

wake

1 mississippi 2 mississippi 3 mississippi

what a FREAKING JOKE 2 GUYS RUSHING the QB

WAKE!!!!!!!

poor brady crying to the refs already about getting hit

Cameron Wake

Brady gets hit and cries to the ref.

ya baby

nice job DDDDDDDDDDD

Mando, y'all (media) need 2 stop harrassing Hennig bout Wildcat! i think he ran it 2 prove a point..

Mando, did you see Brady whining to the ref? How can you stand to watch him in person without throwing up?

Why can't the Fins draft a threatening punt returner? Bess doesn't cut it.

See brady crying already 2 pass plays and he is crying

thank God you cant run a wildcat on the defense of plays, lol lol

From now on I am signing my posts with "FIRE HENNING" at the end....everyone who agrees should do the same.

FIRE HENNING!

Brady you pu

brady crying like a b!tch on a legal hit..typical

we just wasted our points. Henning is an idiot. We average 2 yards per wildcat play and needed six. Can he not add? Plus we average 2 yrds per wildcat attempt this year. What a complete moron. I like the wildcat but we need to let ronnie throw it or have him throw to henne to throw a pass. Until then and certainly not on 3rd and six where we hope to score, we dont use it! If Henning calls the game like this Dolfan nation will hunt him down this week and ship him to an island. unbelievable!

wildcat...get rid if it!

we rushed 2guts on that last drive!!!!!!

I can live with the Cat if it was 3rd and2 or something. They needed 6 stinking yards.

A MONSTER HAS BEEN BORN AND HIS NAME IS WAKE!

Bess isn't sexy, but he has great hands!

Why isn't Nolan Carrol returning punts. He is WAY faster then Bess.

FIRE HENNING!

Brady is such a pantywaist crybaby everytime he gets hit.

Sparano said wildcat is good for 2 to 4 yrd why go for it on 3rd and 6th with Henne throwing good? Sparano and Henning should be fired Sparano should be held accountable for stupidity

I'm far away from Brady, DC. Distance makes the heart grow fonder.

next time the wildcat is run I am going down and kicking sparano in the nuts for allowing this crap!

i HATE DAN HENNING AND HIS WILDCAT!!!!!!!

Wild cat on 3 & 6... r u kidding me!!!! Henne started off 4-4!!!!!

I love u wildcat, oh yes I do...WILDCAT!!!!

luv me some bess

Good YAC by Davone Bess.

Bess!!!! SIMPLY THE BESS!

it's very simple. the wildcat is for 1st and 2nd down, and maybe short 3rds. it has to be a passing threat also to work properly. but u must b an idiot to run it on 3rd and long

ya know what, popncaps551, you might be right. maybe the leaders on this offense need to at least speak up. I can't imagine they are as brainwashed as Henning and Sparano. Do it respectfully, privately. They are the ones getting pounded out there. They have a right to ask the coaches to use their tools correctly.

I do wonder if Jerry being out, and the new center are part of the problem. It's possible even so, you stop it for that reason. Cutler was getting murdered last night, but martz STILL had him dropping back seven steps over and over. no adjustment.

FLUSH THE WILDSHAT!!!!

hold the ball ricky

brady will see the film at half and see we rushed 2 guys on that last play

Hey heres a good idea.. offense is flowing.. lets run the wildcat

dats how we do it boys!

Pass + RUN - WILDNOT= WIN!!!!

dolphins are going to win by 21

yes!

wildcat is so exotic

ok time for wildcat, since henne is in a grove

Wildcat time baby

orange grove

Ricky williams makes me worry every time he touches the ball!!

3rd
