Live blog of Dolphins vs. Bills: All Day!

I was watching the NFL Network this morning and was quite surprised by part of the broadcast which led me to turn it off.

The league's media arm was running down the AFC playoff picture, which of course, included the teams leading their divisions, the teams currently in as wildcard teams, and those "in the hunt."

The Dolphins, according to the wisdom of the NFL Network, were not included in the hunt although some 7-6 teams were. Either the Dolphins get no respect or the NFL knows something.

Look, I recognize the Dolphins have very slim possibilities of getting in the playoffs. Even if they win their final three games -- a serious possibility -- they are not guaranteed of getting in because they need others beyond just the collapsing New York Jets, to lose.

But geez, at least respect the possibilities, no?

I would tell you the biggest chance the Dolphins have of winning today's road game at Buffalo (remember the Dolphins are 1-5 at home so home field advantage doesn't exist this year) is to torment quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Fitzpatrick is the better QB in today's game. Look at the stats. So Miami needs Cameron Wake to make his life miserable. It is a real possibility as Wake leads the NFL in sacks and the Bills have some former guard Mansfield Wrotto, starting at right tackle. I told Wake about Buffalo's right tackle issues on Friday.

"We want those [issues] to peak on Sunday," he said. "That's the plan."

Cool.

It is interesting to me that although Wake leads the NFL with 14 sacks, no one in the Dolphins organization believes he's arrived as a player. And there is more evidence of that than just what folks are saying. There are factoids that speak to Wake still not being in the forefront of the national fans or even Dolphins fanbase thinking. 

It is a beautiful day in So. Fla. And there are Bills fans in the house. I saw Bills fans on the Turnpike driving down to the game, for goodness sake. It will be interesting to me how many DOLPHINS fans show up today despite the fact this game is a sellout.

I did't detect a lot of buzz about this game this week.

Ah, the home field advantage.

[UPDATE: Reshad Jones starts for starts for Chris Clemons today.]

this offense is fu$%ing terrible

Does signing Curtis mean Wallace

Henne is retarded

he sniffed that screen easily

Why does Henne want to have our 2 RBs out of the game? Oh-interception

Laser Cats

LETS GET INTO THE WILDCAT......

Great throw Henne!

picked off, what a surprise...

HENNE IS THE DUMBEST QB IN THE NFL

I WANT HENNE OFF NY TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

theres our boy henne. fu#king sucks!

THAT PICK WAS HENNINGS FAULT....RIGHT ODIN!!!

the original Dolphins owner gets a pick ! nice play

you know your offense is painfully dull when the highlight of the day is an ATTEMPTED DOWNFIELD PASS.... *sigh* lets go fins....

Yeah we really needed that 5 yard pickup on 3rd and 15... Seriously Henne??? An INT on a dumpoff pass??!?!?!

HENNE -- get him off the field!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well we looked ok for 5 mins.... game over folks lol

Henne sucks too. Curtis was open. He missed, then follows up with a dumb screen and now a pick. All on Henne, nothing to do with the Henning there.

That sums him up - he'll play well for 10 plays and then make a dumb mistake. Might be time to sit him down again.

At least their taking shots down field.

GO DOLPHINS!!!

It's 3rd and forever, let's throw a checkdown to a covered RB for either no gain, or even worse, a INT!!!

tell me that was the play calling. no that was just suck boy henne doing what he does best!

They can't stop the run-so we THROW to our running backs instead of...you know running + when they do run Henne forgets how to hand off and the line forgets how to block

this is just a repeat of the Cleveland game, round II

I agree with kris ... that pick was all Hennings fault! LMAO!!!

I dont want to start a pissing match but answer me this one...


If we had 15 INTs but were giving up 300+ yards a game vs the 200 we are now with a few INTS....that would be a better trade off in your opinion? I mean we have DROPPED about 6-8 INTS....literally dropped...not plays that we werent able to make bc it would have been an exceptional play...flat out drops.

I see us as a solid secondary that is young and is not yet making game changing plays like say the ravens of past years or the steelers (mostly Troy P).

but thats just my .02

BENCH HIM SPARANO OR YOUR GONE!!

Henne doesn't have a very good feel for how he sets up a running back on a screen pass. Every time he throws it, it is a loss. not to mention the stupid int he just threw

A tip ball is not his fault

Wilson was the coach not the owner

THE LIVE BLOG CONTINUES IN THE COMMENTS SECTION OF THE SECOND QUARTER POST. PLEASE GO THERE NOW!!!!

I didnt know henning's middle name was kris.... why does he talk in 3rd person....

This franchise is headed towards another 3 years in the dumpster. The worst part is that they never take risks, I guarantee you they skip on any QB in the First round or on free agency.

kris, didn't you see Henning push Hennes arm? It was Hennings fault it went too far.

curtis was open. terrible pass. get him out of there.

19tds 25ints

"The Future" is bleak.

If thats not enough evidence to bench Henne, then Sparano need to be fired. Horrid decision on a 3rd and long. WTH??????????

Its not a repeat of the Browns game it's a continuation

THE LIVE BLOG CONTINUES IN THE COMMENTS SECTION OF THE SECOND QUARTER POST.

Ball was tipped haters!!

After this loss, I hope the players turn on the coaching staff. We
Need change we can believe in.

Does H&H stand for "headed for hell" on offense? The combination of Henne and Henning sure seems so! LOL............

I'M LOVING THIS D

This offense is a mess, we need more balance. The last two drives have either been all runs or all passes

Henne is a spastic....fact

Guys... blame Henne all you want. What I want to know is why there was ZERO running plays in that drive? It was 3rd and 16 and all the pressure is on Henne every series. Our offensive coordinator SUCKS.

GET USED TO IT RUSSEL

Glad too see Kevin Curtis back in the NFL and Healthy... Just wondering when the hell did we sign him?

They had that deep post set up perfectly and they have Curtis run it?? He's been with the offense for what, four days?

Moore should have been running that route. Of course, for him to even be active, the coaching staff would have to understand that if you sign a veteran free agent you don't necessarily have to play him right away simply because he's a veteran.

ball was tipped, lame. i love when they show henne on the sideline with that stupid look on his face. you know he's saying to himself damn i suck!

That's why you go for it on 4th down.Miami has never figured that out yet.Amazing.

What a catch-for Buffalo

Sapp sucks

He throws it with conviction, fitzpatrick

I call it like I see it

WTF

nice play stevie!

nice play smith!
