Dolphins Scrimmage today: Live bog here

Davone Bess was the first Dolphins player on the field in preparation for today's scrimmage. Man's a worker for sure.

Here are some things I've be looking for:

Mike Pouncey: How will he do versus Paul Soliai.

Clyde Gates: Does his practice speed translate to a scrimmage where players are going faster.

Daniel Thomas: Is he a player only when the lights come on?

Marc Colombo: Can he protect Chad Henne?

Chad Henne: If he's checking down in scrimmages, you know that's probably what he's going to be doing in games. If he can stretch the field in scrimmage, maybe, just maybe, we can get some big plays in a game.

Jason Taylor: Does he have the quicks back as he said in my column in today's Miami Herald that he feels better than he has since 2007.

There is a live blog happening here. It's in the comments section. Meet me there.

good afternoon Armando!

had much of a chance to suss out daboll armando and if so how much of an upgrade on 2010 henning do u think he might be?

Hello everyone!

Yes please can't wait to hear some Daniel Thomas updates

Armando may I recommend cover it live, Dolphins.com use it as well as a slew of others for live blogging, much easier to follow. The Boston globe does it for their blogs.

Check it out please, i find the whole comments thing hard to follow

I haven't heard you mention Hartline too much in your colums, is he having a bad camp?

Are the glasses clean?

Thanks for the coverage

Keep an eye on how Carey transitions at guard. I'm very intrigued by that. Also, put out an APB on John Jerry.

Starting D:

Starks, Solia, Langford @ DL

Misi, Dansby, Burnett, Wake @ LBs.

Vontae, Smith at CB

Bell and Clemons in the back.

Hey man thanks again for being our eyes and ears during training camp, for those of us that live to far away to go.

Hey Armando - lets hope things click today!

And lets hope everyone stays healthy.

Thanks for the coverage Armando!!

are you implying Thomas isn't a player in practice? Haven't heard that one yet.

ARMANDO,

IST TRUE SYEPHEN ROSS IS NEGOTIATING TO SELL THE TEAM TO PABLO ESCOBAR?

FIRST PLAY HENNE TO GATES FOR A 70 YARD TD!!!!!!

That D Fence sounds stout!

Broder, that Defense looks awesome.

Mando, Did Kendall Langford sign the extension?

REPOST:

ARMANDO IS TRUE STEPHEN ROSS IS NEGOTIATING TO SELL THE TEAM TO PABLO ESCOBAR?

Where is Odrick going to play? Misi is starting and Odrick is not yet we drafted Misi in the 2nd and Odrick in the 1st. No spot for him I assume with Starks, Solia, and Langford

is the scrimage on?

Good afternoon, Armando.

D20 that is a great problem to have..

Raining cats and dogs in Little Havana.

Happy to be here :)

Hopefully Miami can pull a win out today.

Anthony, not yet complete.

ARMANDO NOW CHECKING HIS "HIGHLY PLACED" SOURCES TO VERIFY THE TEAM SELL TO PABLO ESCOBAR. BE VERY PATIENT EVERYONE!

YES REFRESH

Along with thunder and lightning.

Armando,

Can you describe the type of sets you see today, whether the shot gun in used, if the offense is including screen plays, passing on 1st down at all, if you are seeing 3-5 and 7 step drops?

Just whether some of the things we have been told that the offense will evolve into are happening or not.

I'm also very interested to see if the offensive line can hold up to allow for deep passing plays.


DB,

Am on board with you about the O having better pieces to succeed this year especially if they don`t get to cute about over using Bush in the run game and the OL will be better than last year once Long gets back, factor in Gates and Clay helping the pass game we shoud be improved. I will however temper my enthusiasm until game 4 at the beginning of Oct. to pass judgement on Henne. I will pose this question to you and the others though if we are say 1-3 at that point do you pull the plug on the HENNE!!

Armando,
Thanks for your coverage. Is there a concern with lighting on the practice field?

I'm getting excited about the Thunder and Lightning backfield, and the 2 rookie receivers Gates and Clay!

Starting O

Henne at QB

Reggie Bush & Lou Polite in backfield

LT DJ Jones, LG Carey, C Pouncey, RG Incognito, RT Colombo

Fasano TE

Marshall and Hartline at WR

Lineups subject to freaky change.

...Curious to see how Jimmy Wilson does today. I'm suprised(in a good way) at his success at the corner spot. I Thought he would be playing his saftey. Interesting because he couldn't crack the starting lineup @ Montana at corner. Circumstance perhaps, and Trumaine Johnson who will no doubt be playing on Sundays next year. Maybe for the Phins.....

Along with high winds. Hope it doesn't get to you People.

Dolfandave, what I'm saying is simply this: Thomas looked really, really good in the Monday night practice at the stadium. The rest of the time? Just OK.

I'm wondering if he's a guy that turns it up when things feel more important.

Will Allen is not participating again today. That is not good news for a player who missed most of the last two seasons because of injury. This is his third consecutive day that he's out.

Other than LT that lineup is what we will see when that pats come to town

Oregon, The other day I asked Armando if it seems they are lining up in shotgun more than they did last year in practices. It seems a lot of work is being done out of gun. Last year stories were floated that Henne was uncomfortable out of the gun. Never really heard if that was true or just some Henning bs.

fin4,

1-3 start and Henne can start looking for new real estate in another city.

Incognito at RG?

The Signal, the shotguns stories were floated because Dan Henning said outright during a press conference that Chad Henne feels more comfortable coming out from under center than standing in shotgun.

You are correct, I've seen a lot more shotgun work this camp.

Armando,

Losing Will Allen shouldnt be a great deal. Im believing Nolan Carroll should be ready to man nickel this year.

What the Hell is a DJ Jones?

Clyde the Glide Gates for Rookie of the Year!

oscar canosa,


Do you live in Cuba? in Little Havana?

Henne can't be blamed for everything last year. It's not like anyone else from our offense lit the league up. Our running game stunk, Marshall had one of his worst receiving years, and our O-line was terrible. We can only hope our offense is better with the new OC and the new players. Let's hope Henne is a different player this year, give him a chance.

any news of why allen is not playing

http://mcauliffereport.blogspot.com/2011/08/miami-dolphins-scrimmage.html

I heard that Nolan Carroll's no longer taking st's snaps. Hopefully he's being primed as our starting nickel corner.

Incognito has been working both RG and LG. He lined up at RG setting up for drills. I'll update lineups if it is different than what I gave you at the setup.

Joel, if you like the other blog so well then why the hell are you here?

Jimmy Wilson should be a big help to the secondary too

I've been reading that Henne's has been solid the last three practices is this true?
