Dolphins practice live blog here

I'm at the facility and expect to live blog practice so head on over to the comments section starting around 11:05 to check out what's going on.

I can say this early on:

I cannot believe what I've already heard this morning. No, not about the Kyle Orton trade or Reggie Bush or Mike Pouncey's contract status.

It's the words of owner Stephen Ross. This is what he said, in part, during his meeting with the media moments ago:

""There's a fine line between winning and losing. There's three games we could have won for sure and then there's Pittsburgh, which we all think we won and then look at what our record is. The Jets squeezed by and got a few lucky wins as well. The thing is winning and knowing how to win at the end of the game. That's what's important. Our record doesn't show that's what we do. But you can't say these are teams that are much better than we are and we're really a lagger to them ... You can't draw a fine line and say this team is that much better because they're not. There's a lot of parity in the NFL and we have a lot of great young players. Look how far we've come in a short period of time."

Um, note to Mr. Ross:

The Patriots were 14-2 last year.

The Jets went to the AFC championship game for the second year in a row.

And the Dolphins didn't lag behind?

Crazy.

mr ross is right ARMANDO , YOU R WRONG ....DID HE SAY ANY THING ABOUT THE PATS,NOO...........


QUIT TALKING SHOTS AT HIM WHEN THERE'S NO THING THERE ..........


LOOKING FOR YOUR LIVE BLOG /

Ross was, is and will be an idiot.

ross is delusional and only spews what ireland tells him.

greg z. Sure, that's what all billionaires do...Spew whatever their employee tells them. That's how to get to the top.

Stretching going on now. Good morning everyone.

Last post not by A.Salguero - just another "Armando" my real name

Are you stretching too, Armando?

The rumors are true on the quarterback front.

The Dolphins are talking to UFA QB Matt Moore.

Oh boy.

Good morning (tocayo)

MANDO,

ALL THESE LOSERS WHO ATTACK ROSS ,SHOULD GO AND GET A JOB .

MATT MOORE?!?!?!? FML

Eww, Matt Moore stinks, Devlin might even beat him out.

Jake Long is not practicing. He is working on his shoulder

mando,

any news on rookie signings? when will we see Daniel Thomas and Mike Pouncey on the field?

Wow...

Garrett Chisolm also not practicing and DT Chris Baker also not practicing.

IS HENNE AND B.MARSHALL ON THE FIELD...AND ARE THEY R TALKING TO EACH OTHER ?

Tom Brandstater is taking second team QB snaps.

Did you interview Ross at the bar? What is that incoherent babble, the effects of 3 or 4 dry martini's? :op

So, Mia identified QB as biggest offseason upgrade. They had 6 months to figure out strategy. All of them are on notice to win or be fired. And the best they can do is Matt Moore? How can anyone say that the GM/Coach are not the problem?

Wow Matt Moore? Awful. Any chance we bring in Braylon Edwards?

Matt Moore better just be 3rd string comp for Brandstater(whatever). He was terrible in Car. We need a serious competitor for Henne. Moore vs Henne would be setting this back 3 years.

I do not see Reggie Bush.

Mando,
Sanchez got extremely lucky last year and henne was extremely un-lucky. Sanchez would have had way more interceptions than henne if people would have hung on to his passes when trying to intercept them. I guess being lucky is just as good as being a good player. The jets lucked out.
I do agree with Ross when he says knowing how to win at the end of the game is half the battle. Our coach is a loser. Ryan is a winner. That's the difference

I DO AGREE WITH ROSS,THE JETS AND PITT GOT BOTH LUCKY LAST YEAR .

Bush is actually here but not practicing.

Lucky or not. Dot kid yourself. Sanchez WON games with his late game play. Period. Look at his great 2nd half in Pitt in the playoffs. He has serious talent adv over Henne.

Is the Moore deal a ply to put more pressure on Denver?

He can't practice as per transition rules, not till cba is ratified

Aloco, ross is a businessman. he is fair game for criticism. we pays hundreds of $ to watch his team and have the right to express our views/displeasure. fans can boo or clap;we arent just cheerleaders and no one getting paid is off limits.

Mando,

It has to be SO frusterating being a dolphin fan! I feel like crying over my team. I wait an entire locked out offseason to see what we are going to do to excite the fan base. Waiting for maybe Carson Palmer... he's retiring. And now we can't even get Kyle Orton!!! While the patriots get haynesworth and ochocinco and the Jets get Nnamdi.

For the first time in my adult life I am considering not supporting the dolphins. I'M THAT JADED!!

Still has to pass his physical before he can see the field.

AGREE GREG Z ...WHAT I DON'T LIKE IS ARMANDO TRYING TO INJECT HIS CRAPY HUMOR TO MAKE FUN OF THE MAN .............. BACALA.

Mando,

And word on exploring the FA market at the TE position? Do you know Ireland's thinking at that position? Is Miller in Oakland on anybody's radar?

Bush is not allowed to practice until August 4th.

i dont think bush is allowed to practice until august 4th by rules. he can attend meetings etc.

Reggie - or any other new (non-rookie) player can't practice until the 4th according to the new rules.

DID THE DOLPHINS FIRED THEIR DENTIST AND HIRED A REAL DOCTOR TO LOOK AT BUSH BEFORE WE HAVE SAME ISSUE AS WE DID W/ODRICK ?

631, sanchez had a good line and good running game last year. When Henne had the same 2 years ago he looked like a franchize QB. talent wise they are not much different. Sanchez has better coaching and better team around him.

who is brandstater? rookie? fa? from where?

Aloco, your english is great... how long ago did you dock your raft?

Nice catch of a pass behind him by Brandon Marshall. Reached back with one hand, tipped to himself, and then caught it.

Is Odrick practicing? Do the players appear to be in shape? Is anyone wearing a "feed the wolf" t-shirt?

bush was a ross celeb pick i believe. we need a nfl QB and 2 tight ends!!!!!! we gave away a possible young starting safety(amaya) plus a pick. vince young wouldnt cost us players/picks. matt moore is 2nd tier,much like henne.

Brandstater was signed last year when Henne was injured and Pennington went down.

I hope the Orton deal isn't dead. I think with his experience and savvy he can make this Offense roll. On paper the pieces are there.

IS ODRICK PRACTICING ?????????????

How is henne looking?

ARE THESE PLAYERS PRACTICING ;;;;;;


FASANO
HARTLINE
CROWDER
ODRICK
GATES

The Dolphins are missing the three unsigned rookies: Pouncey, Gates, Thomas.

Armando, who threw the pass that Marshall had to catch behind him... (I fear the answer is Henne)- picking up from where we left off last year I see...

Dolphins just signed Mat Moore to a 2 year deal!!! Forget about Orton. WE SUCK!!!!!!!!

There is only one question that is important at this point. What are the Fins doing at QB and when do you see this issue being addressed?

It CAN'T be Matt Moore! Is the Orton deal dead? Who else is out there?

Jared Odrick is indeed practicing.

Agree kingsmith, the car is built, we need a driver.

greg z, Vince Young has already been picked up by the Eagles as a back up for Vick. He's off the table.

Who cares if NE got Chad O. and Haynesworth? If any other team would have done it, they'd have been considered fools. "Fat Albert" was a punchline at this time last year. Go look up the headlines. Chad O is washed up.

Its like college basketball recruiting. If a 3 start recruit starts getting attention from North Carolina, Duke, or Kentucky, they all of the sudden turn into a 4 star recruit. If aging, head cases, like Haynesworth and Chad O start getting attention from New England, they are all of the sudden back in their prime, and the final piece to the Super Bowl.

New England is Tom Brady. The rest is just details.

Matt Moore??? OMG...i just vomited. Let's give a qb that went 1-15 5 million bucks. Gotta love America.

Mat Moore Vs Chad Henne.


LMAO!


Who wins?
