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?

Matt Moore. 857 yards, 5 TDs, 10 INTs in six games last year. Wow - that's sexy. We're cursed.

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?


John Beck is better than Matt Moore.


Can I get props for breaking the story before Armando.


Please say it's untrue that Moore is the QB they are bringing in as a potential starter?

Both of you are right. We ALL saw the matters of fact that are been mentioned by Ross. Yet, that doesn-t mean that the Jets and the Steelers were overall better than us. QB played a role. Brand new year guys. Brand new circumstances.

Let´s wait and see.

That flirtation with Matt Moore better just be leverage against Orton because dude is not good. And to think that we are missing out on VY is such a shame. First we passed on Mike Vick, now the Eagles are scooping him up too? Eagles looking like geniuses with player acquisiton. Look what they got for an unproven Kolb. And now they are going to have one of the best QB's in the league and someone on the bench who should be starting. Dolphins looking dumb on the QB front. If Henne is the QB next year, 7-9 here we come.

The dolphins are stupid! Why not sign Vince Young.
Philly is the next New England. I admirethem for stock piling talent forlow price and then trade them later for high draftpicks.

Miami could have signed Vince Young to help push Henne,that would have been a major benefit, you either get a better Henne or you gtet a better QB in VY.

Sad tosay they dropthe ball again in REE agency. Reggie alone is not enough.

Nince one Armando - "John Beck is better than Matt Moore."

we still need a leathal break away tight end like a dallas clark type...we need orton, he is a solid qb who will push hennes abilitys to the max to develope or bust...we also need a safety and maybe jason taylor to play outside linebacker...we can still add more talent to get better i can see...

matt moore vs chad henne; whoever wins,we lose!

i have not giving up on henne just yet....but who knows he may not be the man in miami, maybe that becomes orton...having options is always better to me... i like the eagles signed vince young, i think that system will help him mature and develope into a much better qb...

ppl need to be fired !!! this is unaccpectable!!!! matt moore 1-15 5 million bucks!!!!!!! WHATTTTTTTTTTTTT!!! How do we let a guy who has more td than ints , which should be highly valued here, get away from us in Orton...AND HE CAN THROW SUCCESSFULLY TO MARSHALL...lets give up fins fan...this regime is horrendous...

How is Soliai looking? Is the report that he's in "under-weight" from his agent correct?

I'm offically on the Suck for Luck bandwagon! Who's with me?

Mando, where are you, this is your blog!!!!! What's going on in practice, is Moore the QB. It's been 5 months since meaningful football news, don't go into hiding now!!!!

LOL greg z. One thing this does though you have to admit, makes EVERYONE a Henne fan. Who in their right mind wants to see Matt Moore on the field? I hope he's the 3rd string and Devlin is the backup.

This is a HUGE misstep by Ireland. Really horrible news!

Mando is too busy breaking the Anthony McDaniel story....has no idea about Matt Moore.

vince young will do much better with eagles system , and learn from mike vick..vick really matured last year and proved me wrong...

Ken from CT, excellent post!!! Where are in CT, I'm from Enfield

totally true dln265. no matter what the cheatriots do its considered magic mastery. such bullcrap. noplayoff wins in last 3 years for them either. been 7 years since they won a superbowl. im sick of them.

lets trade our team doctors for psychiatrists for ireland! matt moore?? no tight ends??


Brandstater just did a Pat White impersonation and threw a ball four feet over a WR's head.

I don't think Ireland would give up that easily so if the Moore signing is correct, hopefully it's for him to be third string and placing Devlin on PS.

Another terrible pass by Brandstater. I'm done watching him.

For all the Vince Young bashers...Now you have Matt Moore...LOL!!

Fugg the fins,I think I am going to support the Eagles.Miami stinks, they don't knowhow to run ateam.

Why chase after Orton? Quit wasting time and go after a FREE qb. They better not give upanything better thana 4th rounder forhimifthey do.

Where is Cleo Lemon when you need him?

Is Pat White available?

DC, this is the reason i didnt go to camp this year. i woulda had a nervous breakdown!!! i gotta pray henne suddenly "gets it"! i just cant believe we couldnt address the qb issue in the draft or FA.

mando, a bag of shite is better than Matt Moore. This guys doesn't deserve to even be in the league let alone be a decent #2.

WHOA!! You all think VY was the answer for us at QB??? That is some scary stuff. VY is a complete manic head case. He is not mature or smart enough to run any offense. He will hopefully get better over time from riding the pine a couple more years and learning some self control and maturing a little. Orton is definitely our best shot. The guy is accurate as hell and has a good arm. He's a smart QB and already has a good rapport with Marshall. He is the piece of the puzzle that we need to compete and make the post season.

Sanford, Cleo Lemon is up here with me in Toronto, he's the starter for the Argonauts.


How is Henne doing?
Does he hit his targets?

Right on Freedog. He is also a poor pocket passer and has no loft on long passes.


Can you give us an update on the contract signings of picks 1,2, & 3?

Rumor now is Miami will trade HENNE for KYLE ORTON! Henne makes less money and would back-up Tebow. Moore would back-up Orton!


What's going on... we dont care bout the jets and pats -- they got a couple of playeers... whoooo lets just hand them the fuc%$!&% trophy now. WTF! look Mr. Ross mad some good points i saw all the games and he is correct. Sometimes you good and sometimes you're lucky... Jets and pats got luck a few times and had a soft schedule compared to ours.

LETS GO PHINS... I BELIEVE IN YA'LL even if our writers don't.

I can't believe we are signing Matt Moore. This is embarrassing. We would have been better off keeping Thigpen.

I just dont understand why we have spent our last 3 - Second round pics on waste of players. Pat White and Chad Henne were selected in the 2nd Rds. Look what they are and have done.

Ireland need to stop being chinchy and just up the damn second rounder. No one coming out of college next year with be worth what Kyle Orton will bring. Just give up the the pick and lets move on!!!!

Mando, how is John Jerry doing? Who are the first team OL's?

Vince Young folded under the pressure in Tennesse. He won't be coming to the Dolphins under the same pressure. He wouldnt be a high draft pick, and they wouldnt just be handing him the keys to the car, so to speak. He would have to compete with Henne. And he would more than likely win easily. Everyone bashing him for a headcase obviously doesnt understand how passionate the dude is.

how is Henne doing?

Disappointing crowd today. About 2/3 full.

the pats and jets have a system. you can plug anyone in and the team runs efficiently. their coaches and fo are the best. troubled players are easily assimilated and are productive. we are scared to take a chance because the system is faulty and cant handle a possible distraction. other teams have a veteran presence who keep everyone in line. we dont have that hierarchy;only a will allen. other wise we could take a chance on a vyoung,braylon edwards,s.holmes,ocho or haynesworth etc. no guts,no glory!

Do you think that maybe the Fins signed Moore to improve their leverage with the Broncos? Personally, I think they should stick with Henne 1 more year and if he sucks, that just means a higher draft pick. Orton=another delay in drafting a real QB.

Rumormill where did you hear that?

Moore is originally from Dallas, thats why. They know him.

"Disappointing crowd today. About 2/3 full."

Can you blame them? Look at our QB situation.

Trade Henne, Ronnie, and Ricky for Orton and Quinn. Forget Moore.

trade the 2 sparano's,ireland,moore and henne for orton!

You know WHYYY it's disappointing armando!? Because everyone in south florida knows that this team has ZERO chance this year. We are talking about signing Matt Moore damn it! While the pats pick up Haynesworth and Ochocinco and the Jets get nnamdi...


So angry right now! Screw Henne, Screw Ireland, Screw Ross, Screw Dee and Just F*@K THE ENTIRE DOLFINS ORGANIZATION! You have toyed with my emotions too long!


Armando, you're kidding right? Ross said that? Oh boy...This is very promising isn't it? God I wish Mark Cuban would buy this team...

Might as well get what we can for Ronnie and Ricky while we can, let's get a good QB

Sheets, Garner, Murtha, Lex Hilliard are not on the field and not even on the roster as CBA rules won't let them on until 6 pm tonight and possibly not on the field until Aug. 4.

NFL Network just reported Matt Moore signs with Dolphins.

You know, I have been a fan for 25 years and never been so disappointed than right now.

6-10 this year. Ireland and Sparano just don't get it.... without a serious QB you don't have a serious chance.

Why Mando.. WHY!?
