Dolphins lead Chiefs 7-3 to start second quarter

The Dolphins are off to a solid start today. They are attacking the Kansas City secondary. They are using the fact the Chiefs can't rush the passer as an advantage.

That's worked so far.

Matt Moore has a TD throw to Anthony Fasano and that trumps a long FG by ryan Succop.

Let's see if it holds up. The live blog continues in the comments section below.

I'm back!

We will lose by 1 today.

Why is carrol starting over wilson?

Miami scores a TD and coach Sparano is counting how many fieldgoals that equals on his fingers

I want to know who Yeah! is. Seriously! Mystery to me.

Can we finish a rush?

You missed the post Mandy...It's a script that auto-posts

Yeah, that is...

Wake's had two great pass rushes come up empty.

Can't you tell by his email address Mando?

its one of the IT guys

#1 - The Story Of Yeah!

Some of you have expressed annoyance to the simple and playful #1 post, while others have wondered why Yeah! never writes anything else. Others assumed Yeah! was some extremely bored individual who had nothing better to do in life than to spend hours on end refreshing the page waiting for a new blog in order to be the first poster. Some have even suggested that Yeah! was Armando. Well my friends, its nothing of the sort. I will explain.

There is a reason why Yeah! never makes any other contribution beyond the #1 post. Yeah! has not one other thought ever. You see, Yeah! has no fingers, no arms, no eyes, no ears, no body, and doesn't even have a mind. Don't laugh and snicker, it's true. You see my friends, Yeah! is a computer program. I created it on a whim, merely as a challenge, coupled with some minor entertainment value.

When I noticed some bloggers proudly claiming they were first, I got the idea, being a programmer by trade, to see if I could write a program that would continuously check for a new blog, and then automatically make the first post once detected. Programmatically detecting that a new blog was available was a little tricky, but not too difficult. Automating a new post from inside my program that would trick their server into thinking it was coming from their typepad program proved to be a challenging task indeed. I almost gave up several times. It appeared it just could not be done. But, I've learned not to let things go too easily, and there was always that one last thought, one more idea...maybe if I tried this, or that, and on it went. Then by golly, as with many great inventions, serendipity played its part as well. While fixing one part of the program, an inadvertent change along the way was the missing ingredient. Well, you can imagine the rush, the joy of success, when I refreshed the blog and saw my automated post had shown up. In an instant, I exclaimed, "Yeah!". That in turn inspired the poster name I would then use in the program.

Some may have noticed the post missing at times. Well, the program runs on a lab notebook at work which is not always up and running, or not always connected to the internet. Not only that, those computers get shuffled around all the time and I no longer know which one its running on! Neither does anyone using the computer know that its running in the background. Let's just say it would not be in my best interest to inform the lab techs I have a personal program running on one of their machines. In a nutshell, Yeah! has gone rogue!

Now, sometimes Yeah! does not arrive as the first post. That is because the program only checks once per minute, so there is a window of opportunity to beat it, between 1 and 59 seconds, depending on when the blog is posted and how far along the program is on its current one minute cycle. If you can get there first, more power to you, a little competition is always good. Too much competition and I could have it check once a second!, but that would take away all the suspense now wouldn't it?

All in all, and most important, it has been a learning experience, which was really my main goal from the outset.

Well, on to some dark news. It is with much chagrin that I inform you all that sooner or later Yeah! will no longer be posting. Those lab notebooks get wiped clean every so often, just to ensure they are 'clean' machines. Once that happens, Yeah! is going to die. It could be any day now, or it could theoretically take months, it just depends on whether that machine remains a lab machine or is given to another employee for other purposes. Now, I could install it on my home computer, but I'd rather not have it taking up internet bandwidth on my machine, and besides, the challenge is complete.

Sorry for the drama, but I wanted everybody to understand the forthcoming disappearance of Yeah!, and as well to know its true history, and that it was never my intention to be an annoyance.

Clay seems to grab one pass per game, but always long gains.

We do have tight ends on our roster!!!

Fins attacking. I love it.

Finally TE's working for Miami and not against

Sounds crazy, but, I love seeing the Dolphins show some form of fight every week. I believe we will win 2-3 games this season.

I just dont wanna win enough to save Ireland's job. That's far worse than missing out on Luck.

This is getting scary. Somebody need to pull a hammy.

HOLY SH!!!!!!!!T~

Yeahhhhhhhhhhhh Booooooyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!! Where has this been???

This is where they switch to the run offense...

Yes ! Yes!

Moore definitely throws some rainbows...Good thing our players are WIDE OPEN!

Can't complain about the score though!

2 TD's thats almost 5 fieldgoals.....Fistpump x's 5

Moore wants a backup job next year. Maybe Kellen Moore can be our starter? Moore and Moore lol

the Fins went 78 yards in three plays including a 35 yard TD throw to Fasano.

That's a career long TD catch by Fasano.

tony sparano has a shoulder injury.

wow the 3 quarter phins are looking great.

What is this? Using the middle of the field with the TE??? GASP!!!!!!

I've never been this frustrated as a fan. Someone oughta cut Sparano's balz off.

I don't buy it.

Time to play prevent defense now.

An eleven point lead on the road...where have we seen this before?

For goodness sake DON'T BLOW IT!!!

Umm, Fasano has two TD. How many fist pumps is that? Wait I've got to take off my shoes to count that high.

They got here playing an attacking style. If they get conservative it would be ridiculous.

Nice ST tackle by WILSON

Its gonna take one hellava halftime adjustment to lose this one....go Tony

Colts are def getting Luck.

Get ready for the ultimate collapse in the 3rd quarter :)

Dont worry Mando... the conservative is coming. Third quarter after the first drive stalls, you can book it!

Moore-I want Moore of Moore Clay Fasano Marshall Bush-play callling-MOOOOOOre!!!

Sparano does chest pounds with TD's, not fist pumps.

Chiefs seem flat and right for upset today. But before we get to far ahead of ourselves. Remember this was also the case with at least half of the opponents we lost to.

Atlanta 21 Colts zip

Were getting Jobnes who looks good

HOLY...SEAN SMITH dropped his shoulder!

Ok guys, this is where we stop scoring.

Moore...Bush Moore...Bush

Folks even if we don't get Luck we will easily be in the running for Jones Barkeley and Moore. All are pretty damn good and while they're no Luck they might work harder to prove themselves.

yeah keep the pedal down win by scoring a bunch of points not by trying to hold a small lead

Christ the Colts have really mailed it in. Can't believe their on the verge of going from the Manning era to the Luck era. This must have all been planned from the front office.

Don't worry we'll blow it after all its the first half completely different team in the second half.

Nolan Carroll is out of the game.Jimmy Wilson is in.

2 TDs + a sack-wow

D-line actually getting a fair amount of pressure today. Unbelievable!

I'm starting to feel a little giddy. Maybe I should go cut the grass or something. I know a stiff cocktail. Yeah, that'll do'er. Is it 4:20 yet? Got to get my mind right for the collapse.
A win would be great, despite the ramifications.

BURNETT sack?!

Who are these guys?!

Burnett? WOW!

wow...even BURNett is making plays. the stars are aligned...
