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.

greg

did you see the press conferance sparano just did? he was asked and it sounded like chad is the guy unless he really goes down hill or gets injured.

I just dont get why phins fans are all gay dudes.

Greg Z,

I don't think it's Ireland or SpOrano when it comes to showing Henne favoratism.

I think it's Ross himself an the ole "Alma-Mater Connection".

I'm serious, think about it. Ross said Henne was our next Marino and even predicted a Super Bowl apperance!

I couold be wrong, but it explain a few things that seemm unexplainable.

Odins brown eye....ya gay.....probably a heat fan

nome, thats what i was afraid of. henne is sparano's boy;thigpen never got a chance last year. thigpen is doing very well with the bills so far in camp.

Odin is it true you are a switch hitter? I'm ready to switch if you know what I mean ;)

@odin,

I to had the usual suspects over, started with some short passes in a controlled game but by mid-way threw the 1st Qtr. I was going long Brother, BOMBS AWAY, Started shot gunning and late last night was one HELL of a haze as well!!! Although this crafty old VET had his morning helpers lined up to ease the blows!!

No Price is Right, for me, Man.

the internet is a huge garage .

You phins loser s are so dumb your going to tradesfor alex smith

Oscar, no price, let's try for free?

I wonder if SpOrano kept Henne in the game that long in the hopes that he would be injured.

He wouldn't have to answer to Ross for having to bench him, Hmmmmmmmm.................

Dooh!

Now, on a serious note, I have to go over to my Girlfriends house and do some serious "sucking up" over last night.

PS: Hey Berets, don't go getting all worked up over my terminology. I meant it Figuratively, not literally ;p

Fin4,

You have to be careful. When watching Henne, you reach a point where you stop easing the pain and start causing it!

Whew! Heck of a Night-LOL!!!!

henne was about as bad as u could get. sad to see a qb ruin a entire teams season


Observations on the Dolphins
August, 13, 2011
By Matt Williamson

Observations on the Miami Dolphins' 28-23 preseason win against the Atlanta Falcons.

More required from Henne: I have been in the Dolphins’ corner all offseason on their approach at the quarterback position: Build the supporting cast around Chad Henne and give him another chance to succeed. His game versus Atlanta didn’t help his cause at all. His first pass of the night was well behind Anthony Fasano, who could not handle it. John Abraham, who dropped into coverage on a zone blitz, intercepted it. It wasn’t as though Henne was confused by the scheme or under a lot of pressure in the pocket. He just missed an easy, short throw to his tight end. His second first-quarter interception also was released from a clean pocket. In this case, it looked as though he just was unable to fit the ball in over the cornerback (Brent Grimes, who made the interception) and in front of the safety in what was most likely a Cover 2 look. That won’t do. I wonder how much the Dolphins fans attending training camp will boo Henne now. To his credit, Henne did improve after throwing the second interception, although he was facing many of the Falcons’ backup defenders.

Miami was the inferior team: When the starters were playing, it was pretty clear the Falcons are the better team. There is no shame in that for the Dolphins, because Atlanta is clearly one of the top few teams in the NFL. But Miami was beaten in just about all areas when both team’s best players were on the field. After Henne’s opening interception, the Falcons totally owned Miami’s defense and promptly made the score 7-0 in dominant fashion.

I don't work for free, Man.

agree, and lets stop the stupid talk on this being one of the best d's in the league.

odin,

There were a couple of things that caught my attention in the game. If you watch a replay of it for the curiosity of paying attention to what sets Daboll was using, then pay close attention to our 2nd O series. On the 1st play of it we were in a 5 WR set empty backfield with the inside or slot guys in a three point track meet stance. I can`t say I`ve ever seen it before, Henne for some reason having the Atl. D caught looking around and competely of guard throws a quick pass to Bess out of it but it was an interesting formation. The announcers (Charles Davis NFL Net.) didn`t even bother taking note on some of our new looks. They were to interested on what was gong on with Atl.`s sideline talk about biased!!!

a week ago half the bloggers just decided we have a #3 D. sounds good, but you got nothing until you prove it. last year was last year. time to see what they can do this year.

Our only Salvation this year would be if Daboll comes up with ingenious schemes.(he has the personnel for it).

buffalo has improved, they have better coaching too. we can't just say those games are wins.

-ESPN Review,

Why post this guys garbage? He was obviously drunker than I was and that's pretty bad. Everybody and their Mamma's have been able to see it now and knows the pass was on the money. The only thing behind Fasano was Abraham in tight coverage. Had the ball been thrown behind Fasano, Abraham could have easily intercepted it without Fasano's bumbling assisstance.

This drunk impeached his credibilty in his first two paragraphs-Duh! Seeing how he missed this badly with his first observations, why would anyone want to read more-SHEESH!

A drunk like me has more sense and better eyes!

Thanks for trying though and have a nice day :)

greg z, new blog up on the very subject.

Sparano: QB battle not really a battle right now

Odineye. I don't by the story since there are no by lines and credits. Also I have seen the play and the 940 announcers said over and over the ball was between the numbers. Other than that it seems a hoax.

some people avoid reality like the plague.

here is the hoax for you ltcdolphin

http://espn.go.com/blog/afceast/post/_/id/30620/observations-on-the-dolphins

The biggest problem I see with Henne is that on all 8 of his pass attempts, he stared down his recievers, big time. After the first INT, if I was coach I would say 2 things. "Fasano, that ball has to be caught. Chad, that ball needs to be thrown better." The 2nd INT was a horrible decision. Doesn't matter if the reciever ran the wrong route, I saw 3 defenders in the area. What route could he have possibly ran to avoid a pick there?

I live in Australia so I don't get to see too many NFL games. This blog has been really helpful in keeping me up to date with the Fins. I just wanted to get some opinions on wether or not the NFL.com game day pass subscription is worth the 130?? Keep in mind that I see maybe 1-2 games a week, usually pats or jets. Thanks guys. Also, what type of realistic shot does Jimmy Wilson have at making the final roster? I find myself rooting for this kid to succeed and Burke sounds of it ha a pretty good game.

Wow level 26, have not seen that in a while

The first thing I have been thinking all week is talk is cheapest of currency, I laughed when Fat Tony said they were going for the division champs. Looking at thier play last week I would say shut the h_ll up and play.

I have to say if Chad looks like he did last week and tries to avoid the checkdown I might start drinking the koolaid. Carolina is prob the worst team in the league, I dont think we can judge anything by what we did w them. THe Judgement will be week 1 w/a Tom Brady, I dont think we will do well with that game unless we get in position to pull his hair.
