Live blog of Falcons vs. Dolphins here

ATLANTA -- The news first: Wide receiver Brandon Marshall, running back Reggie Bush and outside linebacker Jason Taylor are dressing tonight but are not expected to play for the Dolphins versus the Falcons.

Will Allen, Jake Long, and Garrett Chisolm, who have been injured much of camp, will not dress at all.

Daniel Thomas will start at running back while Davone Bess will start receiver. Obviously, the starting OLBs are Cameron Wake and Koa Misi.

There will be a live blog in the comments section starting at kickoff. See me there.

Notice how Odin instinctly knew it was about him. Truth is a zinger!

Here is what I don't get.

If Fasano can't catch then why is he on the team?

Odin claims he's on the team because the regime knows what they are doing.

Can't have it both ways Odin?

WHAT A BUNCH OF FEMINE PHIN FANS TALKING ABOUT RECIPES AND COOKING AND RUBBING LOTIONS ON CHAD HENNE. THERE IS NOT EXCUSE FOR HIM. MAYBE YOULL GET ANDREW LUCK....GOOD....LUCK

SINCERLY THE JETS THE DOPEST TEAM EVA

Here is what I don't get.

If Fasano can't catch then why is he on the team?

Odin claims he's on the team because the regime knows what they are doing.

Can't have it both ways Odin?

Hey Guys,

Just waking up now after a night with 4 hotties!!!

policmans daughter!
firemans daughter!
judges daughter!
garbagemans son!

I'm WORN out! Time to drink up!

Valhala!

FASANO IS A SCRUB AND IS BUSY TRYING TO TEXT DUSTIN KELLER ABOUT WHAT ITS LIKE TO BE A REAL MAN

It's you,

(Wink, wink ;))

Los Lobos, if your looking for a reason to bag Henne, pick something else. Anyone with 2 eyes and a brain can look at that play and see it is on Fasano.

Tou have beef with odin... thats for you two to worry about.

But you are not helping your cause trying to argue that int and pin it on henne.

Either you did not see it, or you are a "Henne hater", which then would lose credibility for your argument.

If you want to attack Henne for the second int, all the power to you.

But the 1st was ALL Fasano.

The guy dropped a pass and some act like that NEVER happens. Fasano has been very sure handed, he drops one ball and everyone is on him overboard. Ridiculous.

Odin,

You can't have it three ways in this world.

Either Fasano can catch or the regime is wrong about him or the ball was poorly thrown.

How do you reconcile that in your mind?

Not bagging on Fasano, he dropped a pass, very bad play, they happen. But to blame henne for it is insane... Seriously. If you watch that play there is no way to blame that on Henne.

The second though... Holy crap... terrible.

Thank you Poizen. That's all I've been saying.

Uh oh, look out now, things are getting strange. Lobos what kind of tactic is that. I never sadi any of those things. In Fasano's first season I hoped for the best. After that I figured he might be a solid number two TE. I've been wanting an upgrade and have been blasting the FO for not doing so. Matter of fact I had Cameron Jordan TE USC on my wishlist leading up to the draft.

I can't have it both ways, but you can't just make stuff up either-SHEESH!

PS Remember: A WR in full stride should never get a ball SQUARE ON, MIDDLE of the upper chest in BOTH hands.

(snicker, snicker,)!

Heck, we know TO can catch. We know Randy Moss can catch. BUT ODIN has stated on the record Fasano can't catch.

So why didn't we go after TO, RM or Plax Odin? Why is this regime sticking with a KNOWN non catcher instead of KNOWN catchers?

YOU SHOULD STICK TO MMA SITES LIKE THE UG

LL. Thought this was about a TE

@poizen

THEN WHY IS HE ON THE TEAM? I've seen many HOF receivers make that catch.

Why is he on the team then poizen?

WHY CANT YOU ACCEPT YOUR FATE? STOP SHARING RECIPES AND STORIES ABOUT SEX AND THE CITY. REALIZE THE JETS WILL SWEEP AND AND SLEEP WELL

2 int.s and a touchdown. Is that really the idiot we need at Q.B. during his short time on the field ???? Do the math!!! Really???

Typical Odin. When faced with football problems he snakes away from answering simple questions.

WHY IS FASANO ON THE TEAM IF HE CONSISTENTLY DROPS PASSES OTHER HOF RECEIVERS CATCH?

Los Lobos, really?

Every receiver in the game has dropped a ball.

My point was, you bagged on henne for the int. that is nuts my friend.

So I assume you just hate Henne, which is cool if you do.

But don't attack the kid for things that were not his fault.

thats all.

ARE YOU STILL SELLING JETS MERCH IN YOUR STADIUM BWAHAHAHA

Alright, im out, not getting into another henne argument.

later all.

Remember everyone, Odin believes people who can't catch should make millions of dollars a year in the NFL. He also believes people who can't throw should make millions every year. He also believes people who can't coach should make millions of dollars a year.

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a retard...

Henne...Henne....Henne.......

Good Lord........

You guys do remember we have a rookie RB....who had a nice run after the catch.....however....showed little to nothing in the run game itself.....

Was it the OL....or DT's lack of vision......

And Henne didn't give up 17 Points in the 1st quarter......

Although his 2 pick contributed......

There are more things to be worried about on this team then Henne....

Lobos,

Love the name. Let's kiss and make up sweet cheeks!

Just stop making up things and putting them on me. I never said Fasano couldn't catch. My biggest knock on Fasano is that he's not a seem threat.

I like the guy in general, but I think we need an upgrade. If we had a seam threat and could keep Fasano as number 2, I'd be fine with that as well.

I just don't think he's a starting calibre TE, that's all. I know it's just one dropped pass and I know it happens. I even admit to over reacting, but it was mostly because it was our first pass attempt of the year. Not because I think he's completely worthless. He CAN block pretty good.

Before the game however, on this blog, I wrote now that Channing Crowder is gone I'm making Fasano my new whipping boy. Just like when I thought Crowder was our biggest need of an upgrade, I now think Fasano is where we need the biggest upgrade. Not because he dropped that one pass, just because in a passing league, we need a pass catching seem threat TE.

PS: Please don't bring up our need of an upgrade at QB. I'm well aware of this but I just don't think it's going to happen this year. FRUSTRATING to say the least.

Gates looked really nice...and quick......

and Lives....returns a Punt for TD.......nice...

Definetly liked the play of Gates...on offence...

His ST play was less remakable.....


WHY IS FASANO ON THE TEAM IF HE CONSISTENTLY DROPS PASSES OTHER HOF RECEIVERS CATCH?

Posted by: Los Lobos | August 13, 2011 at 03:19 PM


Fasano makes that catch 9 out of 10 times. He does not consistently drop passes. Fasano has been extremely sure handed since he has been on the team. You are making a false statement. Maybe just trying to get someone irritated, who knows.

kris-

Clyde the Glide Gates...my darkhorse Rookie of the Year! And Livas is a speedster! Nice...

Lobos,

I was just giving you a ribbing over that one kind of funny statement you made about:


A WR in full stride should never get a ball SQUARE ON, MIDDLE of the upper chest in BOTH hands.

If this is embarrassing so much that you're going to start making up things and calling me names, I'll apologize, sheesh man.

Get grip man, it just one pre season game, I know I had too :)

Love the name. Let's kiss and make up sweet cheeks!
--Odinseye

You can kiss my arse Odin! You're sitting here blaming Fasano for Henne's poor throw. Let's assume you are right. It was Fasano's bad. Then why is he on the team then?

This is not the first time Fasano has been questioned concerning his catching ability.

So either one of three things are going on. One, he can't catch. Two, the regime is stupid. Three, Henne can't throw right.

Tell this board which of the three is going on. Don't snake away just answer my question. I can't see a fourth option.


Finsfan72....

Gates would be a nice Rookie of the year.....I hope he gets on the feild enough to make a true impact......

Lives...was fast....I wonder if he has a chance to make the squad.....i didn't even know we had a Livis on the team.....

I really hope we get to see more of Dniel Thomas next week...and the Line opens up some holes....

"Fasano makes that catch 9 out of 10 times."
-- el jefe

Fasano makes that catch 1-10 times when the game is on the line.

Kris and FinsFan,

Don't forget me in the group.

Since the draft I've been high on Gates.

I keep posting Gates = Davone Bess with BLAZING speed!

I've watched all the youtube I could find and last nights games as well, so fas, so GOOD!

Pre Game last night I posted:

Play Gates! Play Gates! Play Gates! Play Gates!

I'm still worried SpOrano's bonehead will bring him along like he did Wake and Jones, Grrrrrrrr!

What the he!! was Armando taling about with this Delvin kid.....

He sucked in this game....and i'm not blamng Sporano for his poor play.....

Delvin was by far the worst QB on the feild......thats counting both teams......

Odin.....

thats my concern as well...Gates might not see the feild until his 5th season....and 2nd contract....


So either one of three things are going on. One, he can't catch. Two, the regime is stupid. Three, Henne can't throw right.

Posted by: Los Lobos | August 13, 2011 at 03:34 PM


Lobos, I'll play. I'll answer the question.

But first apologize for telling me to kiss your arse and promise we can exchange cordially?

Deal?

I'm watching the replay on NFLN....

and I got to say....our OL didn't open any holes....1st-3rd string......

Sporano's clock management woes continue....

He called a TO with 2 min...and 1 sec....to go in the 4th quarter.....

1 second until the 2 MIN WARNING......

Goos thing its pre-season....

"Lobos, I'll play. I'll answer the question.

--OdinsEye

LOL!!!!!!! Someone has a high opinion of themselves. I don't care if you answer or not Odin. The answer is clear. You have to be Jeff Ireland because only Jeff would sniff the jock strap of Henne this much.

You take care of yourself Odin because if you're betting on Henne then I feel sorry for you.

If Los Lobos has taught us anything.....

Its.....DON'T EXTEND THE HAND OF FRIENDSHIP.....lol.....

I see my post game prediction was right on the money. My crystal ball is finely tuned.

Press conference coming up. Tony is going to say hello and then a lot of meaningless mumbo jumbo and end each sentence with 'these types of things' and 'those types of things'.

Should be enlightening.

Nice to see a FIN person in the 2nd-dary....hold on to a game sealing pic......

Everybody and their brother could see Fasano should have caught that ball

That is everybody but me

I am either a total jackoff OR

Blind as a F'n bat

Damn Lobos, I wanted to answer the question too.


LOL!!!!!!! Someone has a high opinion of themselves. I don't care if you answer or not Odin.

-I'm not all high and mighty. I do have confidence though. You're reading it all wrong. I'm a retarded degenerate that CHOOSE to be on my own since I was thirteen. I've screwed up my life every which was possible and repeatedly-Duh-because of my past stupidity. The thing is, I always try to better myself and even though I don't always succeed, I have enough smarts to be thankful and to know I'm TRULY BLESSED! (fvcking autobiography, I must be stoned-LOL).


The answer is clear. You have to be Jeff Ireland because only Jeff would sniff the jock strap of Henne this much.

You take care of yourself Odin because if you're betting on Henne then I feel sorry for you.

I'm not betting on Henne you can believe that. I am however hoping against hope that some miraculous miracle takes place and he somehow restores our credibility.


Posted by: Los Lobos | August 13, 2011 at 03:49 PM

Now I'm asking you very politely, PLEASE apologize and let me answer the question. I apologized to you.

PS: I know the answer and it might surprise you!

LOL!!!!!! Henne is only 1 of 3 QB's who threw 2 PICKS this preseason.

Aw man Lobos,

I know you're just some sign in name on a sports blog, but for some reason you not apologizing and talking to me is hurting my feelings.

I know I need to get a grip but wow, I'm feeling some kind of loss in faith or humanity or SOMETHING.

So this is what having "feelings" is like?

Hell with it, I'll do like I always do and just drink em away!

Bottom's Up!!!!

Brady is damn cute. Why can't we have at least one cute QB on the team? Just one?

YO BEEN HERE FOUR HOUR,YOU LEAVE NOW.

Odin, How drunk were you last night, You sounded ripped.LOL

I think Lobos has prompted me right into an epiphany!

I'm going to call up my "MAIN" smoking Hot Blue Eye'd Blonde Girlfriend and tell her all kinds of things I know I'm gonna regret later.

But who cares, Lobos has just made me realize something very important!

Better yet, I'm going to go over to her HOUSE and tell her face to face(oh God this doesn't feel right). I can't help it, I'm going to bare my soul for her and tell her everything and exactly how I feel! YEAH!

PS: Don't be surprised if I'm single AGAIN by the time I get back!

From The Phinsider

"The drama is over. You wanted a quarterback battle? No. [Chad Henne] is the starting quarterback and will be unless his health gives or his regular season performance costs the [Dolphins] victories. "

"It won't be long before [Chad Henne] throws twice as many picks as he does TD's just as he's done in his pathetic limited playing time during the past 2 seasons. For some reason he is out starter, and clearly unqualified to be so. Yes [Matt Moore] is [a great] backup QB in the NFL, but don't worry he'll get plenty of playing time. I give [Chad Henne] 2 weeks regular season before he either gets injure or pulled out of the game due to an embarrassing performance."

This conversation came from another blog, with the first quote being the first part of Jeff, the blog's author's, posting, and the second quote being the first comment in response.

The problem with it? It's actually a 2006 posting about the Bears. That's right. The starting quarterback actually talked about was Rex Grossman and the backup was Brian Griese, three years after he left Miami. Just to be accurate, the comment about Griese being a "great" backup actually reads "the best" backup in the NFL.

Ken LaVicka of ESPN 760 made me think about this when he tweeted, "The vitriol at Henne reminds me of being in Chicago when Grossman fell apart. Fans went crazy. That wasn't fun. This feels like that."

With that in mind, I started searching for blogs from back in the Rex Grossman, Chicago Bears time frame. The first one I found was "Da Bears Blog," where I pulled the above quotes.

And LaVicka is dead on right.

Some Dolphins' fans' - and beat reporters' - hatred for Henne has moved into an irrational desire to see a change at the helm. Not that Henne does or does not deserve the starting position, but a need to see a change at the position.

These are the fans that, as long as the Dolphins quarterback isn't Dan Marino, will never be happy with the quarterback.

No quarterback can develop anymore. If the Dolphins select him or sign him, these are the fans that expect that quarterback to show they are Hall of Fame worthy the second the step on the field.

Aaron Rodgers would fail on this team. Taking three years to allow a quarterback to develop? Unthinkable.

So, now we are in the midst of more and more fans moving to the Henne hating side of the ball. Is it fair to him to have expectations as high as we all do? I don't know.

But now, Henne is looking over his shoulder at Matt Moore, a n undrafted free agent quarterback in 2007. A player who has a 57.6 career completion percentage, compared to Henne's 61.1%. A player with only 349 career passing attempts, compared to Henne's 953.

People point to Moore's touchdown to tinerception ratio (15:14) as why he should start over Henne (27:33).

So, do we have a quarterback controversy in Miami?

Should Matt Moore be behind rookie center Mike Pouncey opening night, rather than Chad Henne?

Or should we all realize that Henne is still a developing passer, who shows flashes of greatness? Shoudl we all realize that of the two interceptions he threw last night may , only one may have been his fault, and that's not even 100%?

Do the Dolphins need better performance out of the quarterback position than what they had from Henne last year? Sure. No one would argue that.

But, perhaps it's time to relax about Chad Henne and let the 26-year old kid play some football. As of now, Chad Henne is the Miami Dolphins starting quarterback. We are Dolphins fans. While we can all hope for more from the quarterback spot, it's time to rally around Chad Henne, because I don't think there's anything on this roster that will be better than what Henne can give us. Let the Dolphins add Reggie Bush and Brandon Marshall to the offense, and let that offense actually game plan for an opponent, before we fry Henne for a preseason performance.

And maybe, just maybe, we will all find out that we have the quarterback we all want.

Odin, How drunk were you last night, You sounded ripped.LOL

Posted by: Seminole Sam | August 13, 2011 at 04:24 PM


Sam I'm not kidding, right after the first INT I started slamming down Bourbans and Budweisers that would put any Bowery Bum to shame!

I quit watching before Halftime and put on a very childish display for my Girlfriend and some friends.

My Girlfriend tried to slow me down but I went all what I call APE SHYT RETARDED. Thank God she knows how to pacify me. She told me today our friends weren't real offended but they DID leave in a hurry.

By midnight I was in a full blown blackout! I don't even think I made it till 1:00 oclock before I was OUT!

I got a feeling it's going to be a rough season!

OdinsBrown eye has a hairy blonde boyfriend. He is going over to practices center qb snaps.

LOL At Our Drunken Friend Odin, I too partaked inmany drinks, Right after Hennes 2nd pick.

i wonder if there is finally going to be a true QB competition or has henne been secretly annointed again? something tells me it'll be henne no matter what; more favoritism like last year. matt moore looked like an NFL QB.

Jets jets jets

Oye, Ramon, no j-das mas y dedicate a estudiar the excitement of Atoms into the 2nd level. Yes?
