« Fins next move: Gotta be a QB, right? | Main | Dolphins weigh Edwards, like their guys more »

Wednesday morn: Live practice blog here

Dang, it's hot, The Miami Herald has learned.

Here's other things the Herald has learned. Agent David Canter said on my radio show, Armando and the Amigo this morning, that the club has had zero contact with him about getting Paul Soliai signed to a longterm deal. Soliai, who counts $12-plus on Miami's salary cap, is a prime target for helping lower that cap hit if the team were to find enough confidence to get him signed longterm.

More on the salary cap front, RT Vernon Carey is here. That is an almost certain sign he accepted a pay cut. If he's not, well, you know that doesn't bode well.

The Dolphins are working at 11 a.m. today. It is one day before the team is completely on the field in that Miami has upwards of a dozen players who are not yet allowed to practice based on the fact they were either traded to the team and signed new contracts or were signed as free agents.

Believe it or not the Dolphins defense, which normally wears aqua jerseys in practice, is wearing orange jerseys. The offense is in its traditional white.

I'm wearing shorts. I'm also headed to the comments section for the live practice blog. See you there.

Anyway, the

Reggie Bush is one such player. He switched numbers today, giving Matt Moore the No. 8 he was wearing lately and taking No. 4 instead. Bush will not wear No. 8 or 4 anyway. He's a RB and those are not allowed.

Marc Colombo will wear No. 71 and DJ Jones is wearing No. 65.

The Broncos would be foolish to trade Orton with Tebow not even close to being ready and the Dolphins would be equally foolish to overpay for a guy who has never been anything more than completely mediocre in his career.

Actually, I predict a year from now Tebow will be campaigning (and praying) with Michelle Bachmann on her quest to become the standardbearer of America's dumbest people.

The NFL is for men.

Nancy Pelosi has a lock on America's dumbest person.

I'm not feeling confident about the qb situation like everyone else but with a new system & no mini camps I'm going to hold judgement until after the 2nd preseason game.

Can you not tell the difference between reporting and opinion, he is telling you what he sees

I wouldn't be amazed if Devlin makes the team this year and then ends up starting this year when they realize that henne was a bust. Ohhh I hope I am wrong.

Play of the Day: Ready?

Clyde Gates matched against Vontae. Nine route and Henne underthows ...

Gates stops. Vontae leaps. Vontae miss times the jump. Gates goes up from behind Vontae and snatches the ball. Vontae falls down. Gates turns and runs to the end zone for a TD.

Bad throw. Bad ball skill by Vontae. Great work by Gates.

ARMANDO,,,, NOTICE YOU DIDN'T REPORT HENNE' TD TO MARSHALL AND YOU KEEP BAD MOUTHING HIM...WHAT KIND OF REPORTING IS THAT ?


ALSO D.THOMS IS NO GOOD .

Hey craig, most of us are "on the anyone but Henne" bandwagon. Just sayin...

ted, you need to look up mediocre and then look up Orton's numbers and Henne's, then tell me who is mediocre and who is an above average NFL starter

Good, awareness on the ball, good.

His reporting is skewed....everything is Henne, even when they drop a pass

Others at practice can see too.....

I am reading the same comments you are and I don't get that at all, I am no fan of Armondo but you are reading what you want to read out of it

Aloco,

What is the reason for you bad mouthing D.Thomas?

Mando,

Now with Schefter's report that Orton will be Denver's starter. How does it feel to report on a team that has 0 chance of even the playoffs this year?

I LOVE SEEING ALL THESE NEW NAMES WE NEVER HEAR ABOUT UNTIL WE HAVE LIVE BLOG,LOL

Aloco is a dumb ass who likes to annoy people, ignore its posts

Cayman he's bad mouthing everyone. He's a fraud.

who is clyde gates armando ? he seems to be doing well.

bigdog, armando doesn't care. he deals with knuckleheads all day long like the phins f/o and hc.lol

GOLDEN........ IN ALL THE PRACTICES SO FAR.......D.THOMAS DIDN'T DO A THING ,LE LOOKED SLOW AND BOTHERED BY THE HEAT .

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Armando...This may not be a question you want to answer. If you can here it goes. I suggested the other night that if Hennes play conjures no confidence, or belief he can lead this team. That it isn't to far fetched to think he will be outright released. Especially if his play forces a move to aquire another quarterback to take the reigns.What say you?

I HATE SEEING ALOCO REPORT LIKE IF THIS IS HIS BLOG. GET A LIFE GUY.

Clyde Gates is 4th Round pick Edmund Gates, name change

Perhaps Armando would like to tone down on his personal commntaries. The result will be the same, Henne sucks.

I hear the move is Veron Davis TE SFO in a trade.

Armando is totally on the anyone but Henne wagon. And Pcola Fin, most of us are NOT on the anyone but Henne wagon. Speak for yourself. We haven't even played one pre season game and Henne is already washed up???? It's called PRACTICE for a reason. Practice is for trying things out and getting the rust out before game days.

mac 1492, where did you hear that? your head or somewhere else?

INTERCEPTION FROM BRANDSHAW

Thanks NJack! i like the look of this guy.

O'Hara was a OC for Giants. Pro-bowler the last three years. He was the leader of the great offensive line in NY. He was also a leader in the huddle. Check the stats on the Giants O-line the last 3 years. If he is truly signed, that a great signing! A season changing signing for the o-line!

THAT IS NOT ALOCO BLOGGING! HE DOESNT LIVE IN FLORIDA. FIGURE IT OUT?

Its some clown playing with you.

GATES TD FROM HENNE......WHERE'S ARMANDO ?

IT'S BRANDSTATER YOU TOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is team going to give up on Sparano again like they did at the end of season last year?

Wasn't Romo undrafted?

Kyle Orton's record in his last 23 starts: 5-18.

Chad Henne's record in his last 23 starts: 10-13.

Hummm.....

Why Can I not have a job like Armando. Watching football and drinking beer. Only in America

MANDOOO!

are you getting the feeling this team is better or worse then last year? I know i know.. it's early..

Armando, did vernon carey have to take a pay cut.?,
if so who will we try to get with the money we've saved.?,

and one thing I notice is how badly the dolphin fans bash the dolphins,we have to support our team,things will turn around soon,we just have to have HOPE

Ron,

Thats what I am saying.

The Broncos suck, worst defense in football, you can certainly bend stats to your favor but until Orton starts playing defense that one is meaningless. TD/INT, total yards passing, QB rating? They all blow Henne away

HENNE IS THE STARTER
HE'S THE MAN ............................................... HENNE TO GATES


HENNE TO MARSHALL........BEST OUTING IN CAMP SO FAR FOR HENNE .

bog baby you took the words right out of my mouth haha! ALoco indeed you are a tool!

Rusty:
Henne isn't washed up. That would mean he was actually any good to begin with. The dude is a backup QB on most teams in the NFL. I'm not going to argue with you on what Henne "could be". The stats, Wins/losses, Bill Parcells, and Brandon Marshall all argue the same points as I am.

Mando,
How in the world can the coaching staff see how good Henne is when he is sharing reps with two undrafted QB's that belong on the practice team. That why it was so important to bring in proven Vet at QB. Even Moore has not proven anything. When Pennington was healthy, Henne was easily beaten out of the starting spot. We need at least a proven QB to see where Henne is.

Romo went to a college in IL. I think. Parcells drafted him.

HENNE HAD ABOUT 3 TD'S TODAY ,I THINK .

Mando,

How is Carey doing as the RG?

dvt023, I agree 100% with you. Too many Phins haters on here and the worst part is that they claim to be fans.

@ NJack what about W-L:



Kyle Orton's record in his last 23 starts: 5-18.

Chad Henne's record in his last 23 starts: 10-13.

Vernon Davis to Miami? Yeah right! He is their only recieving option with Crabtree out 4 to 6 weeks. Try again mac1492!

BRANDSATER ICK NAME IS BRANDSHAW YOU DONKEYS .

NICK NAME

Who cares about win loss???? what is your point? Denver was the worst defense in the league last year, the worst. The guy playes one position and last year with the worst defense he had a great TD/INT rate, 10th in passig yards 15th in passer rating, all blew Henne away

Be a stat geek all you like, I'll take the Wins over the losses any day.

What kind of stats did Elway have his first three years?

Armando,
Why isn't Ray Feinga at practice today, any insight? Trade bait?
I know his sister Chupamela...

Really.
Gates is going to shine. Armando, please keep us posted on Grigsby. I hear really good things about him. A lot of buzz.

It's the WIN/LOSS record that gets teams in the playoffs, not QB stats...thats for Fantasy Football...

You're all wet MUst be a woman with logic like that.

I'll take wins too, when it comes to the coach and the GM, the QB can only do so much and there was nothing wrong with their offense, THEY HAD THE WORST DEFENSE IN THE LEAGUE, WHAT CAN THE QB DO ABOUT THAT??????
