« Daniel Thomas is so far simply disappointing | Main | The reaction following 30-13 loss to Dallas »

Live blog and lineup changes here

Minutes before the start of what promises to be the most meaningless game of the season:

Ryan Tannehill is going to start. He's going to start running, too, if he's smart.

That's because the starting offensive line will be a backup unit except for rookie Jonathan Martin at right tackle. The unit consists of Ray Feinga at LT, Chandler Burden at left guard, Ryan Cook at center, John Jerry at right guard and Martin at right tackle.

Crazy, right?

Daniel Thomas starts for Reggie Bush, who is not expected to play.

The injured scratches tonight are: Jake Long (right knee), David Garrard (knee), Nate Garner (head), Tony McDaniel (leg), Lydon Murtha (foot), Brian Hartline (calf), and defensive end Derrick Shelby (shoulder).

Middle linebacker Karlos Dansby is dressed but not expected to play. Austin Spitler starts in his place. Kevin Burnett is dressed but not expected to play. Gary Guyton starts in his place.

There's a live blog happening in the comments section. I'll be there for the kickoff. See you there.

I wish I could write my name in pretty blue like Ohio and Indiana "fans" who live more than 1,000 miles from Miami.

funny tidbit... the cowboys QB S.McGee, is the ex Texas A&M QB who tossed RT's first completion as a WR..... and, of coarse the same QB who beat out RT in the QB competition...

Lane WOW!!

Man with all these WR stoping balls. Let's give the cheer leaders a try. At least most of them don't drop balls!! Lol

Lane a freaking bull!!!

Lane has spot on this team

Told you guys, Miller has no explosion to the line of scrimmage. If there is a hole open for a nano second, it will be closed by the time he gets there.

Lane 277. Keep him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fasucko
Are you insane??... we lokked good??, playing vs dallas minus Romo, Whiten, Bryan, Austin Ware, etc... ... LOL, that the funniest thing i read today... you´re the new in football...
Please dont be the "Irescum" boy

Fasucko - The starters were not even playing against defensive starters and could not get in the endzone...as for the 2's, dont you think the 2's are playing in the 2nd quarter? Don't you think Nolan Carrol is considered a 2nd on our defensive you got burnt last drive. Pull your head out of your A $ $ and realize this team has issues

JAVORSKI!!!!

WR dropping balls. Cheer leaders don't drop balls, only a s s!

Plain to see the difference between their receivers and ours.

Gotta step away to write my column, folks. I'll be back later after deadline.

Fasucko - I respect your optimism and hope you're right, but I'm not sure that this team can be fixed just by a wr

Oscar,

Plain to see the difference between our recievers and pop warner recievers. They catch more passes at the pop warner level than us.

What was clear was that Tanne was sharp and is the real deal.

That's the only relevant thing.

And Thomas. Also good.

The whole Team semms more active Today.

This game is meaninless right now... just to know who make the team at 3rd string.. but WE´RE GOING TO SUCK!!!... 1-15 WHO WANTS TO BET...COME ON WHO!!!???

Indiana how did the colts do?

Yeah, talk about issues. Their home town fans won't even claim them.

sagneul - Thank you I am not the only one that thinks Fasucko is a complete idiot. He probably thinks we will finish 12-2 or better and win the division as well...

Armando! Please talk about this years team and what your thoughts about wins and losses!

ARMANDO,


ARE YOU WRITING A COLUMN ABOUT OUR GARAGE MANAGER TON OF MISTAKES OR YOU GOING TO TELL US YOU SPOKE WITH AND HE TOLD YOU HIS CRAP ?

i am pleased that the Dolphins didn't do their patented rush for the table scraps and get TO or Stallworth.

Oh, I apologize. I neglected my duty. I forgot during the last several hours to remind you that...

ANTHONY FASANO IS PURE, UNMITIGATED GARBAGE.

I SHALL REMIND YOU OF SAME THRICE DAILY AND I SHALL BE HERE ALL YEAR.

Lane is looking like Okoye on SuperTechmo Bowl. You do not see what he is doing to would-be tacklers often in the NFL.

That center of ours is excellent. Where the heck did he come from?

Now that Matt Moore lost the starting job looks like he doesn't give a damn

Dashi thought come the Regular Season Move Clay to FB.

But this Kid Lane is Looking like the Truth. He runs with that Weight. Some Big Guys can't do that.

Sporano would specially love him for his 3rd & 1 Special. FB Dive.

Lane is Space? WOW!!

Might as well call him Truck Lane.

Jerry and MArtin seem to be a tandem?

If they stick? Philbin has made more out of JErry than Sporano ever did.

Matthews ran a beautiful route, nice studder step, burned the cb. Has size, some speed, keeper.

Hard to judge wrs when Moore can't hit them

Nothing new with Matt Moore. Had a dcent 1st year with Carolina and sucked terribly his 2nd season. This is his 2nd season as a dolphin.

They shouldn't play Moore anymore. It's obvious that he wants outta here.

Must keep rishard matthews

The Giants & Patriots have 3rd string CB's who are better than Carroll.

Why does Dallas 3rd string qb look so much better than our 1 and 2? Lord help me this season.

The coaching staff and front office is purging the team of quality players for discipline's sake, making it quite obvious that this season is a concession to rebuilding. Players are told - for fear of the embarrassing truth coming out - to keep their opinions "in house" as HBO documents every second of the preseason. With all of these strong suggestions, the team has taken coaching and front office's lead and have thrown in the towel before the season has even started. Philbin and Ireland are embarrassments. I have never in 42 years entered a season where hopelessness was enforced rather than an unfortunate occurrence. Please try, at least. Even Cam Cameron tried.

You can see that #40 is a goner.

Looked like refs missed obvious holding call

Oscar,

Moore's playing like he wants out of not only Miami, but the entire nfl. What Gm would want him if they were watching tonight's game. Not even as a 3rd string backup at this point in his career.

Geez sagneul ill take those odds. All they have to do is win 2 games and I win? If only I could bet you for real, I would put everything on a bet like that!

Lane just took a guy out the Game and Possibly for a Couple Weeks with A Concussion.

0-4 preseason

Caroll is not having a good game... again...

Indiana...
Fasuko= Ireland´s bit**... plain simple... ´cause guys like that this morons still are in chrage of our team, they buy everything they said and tickets too....
This team has in rebuilding mode year after year for the last 15 years or so... please somebody tell them that you dont rebuilt giving up talent, but adding it!!!

Why is that Everytime The Official calls a Penalty on The Dolphins he has a Smile on his F'n Face?

We have to remember that anyone we get of the wire will have a week to learn the playbook, etc. This will really hamper an O-Line guy or wideout.
Another bad call against Carroll.
These refs are the worst I've seen in one of our games.

Roman005,
because our starter is a rookie, Garrard is hurt, and Moore quits.

I know a couple of refs that will be getting cut Monday.

These guys are BAD..........Real Bad!

Cowboys look sloppy. Jason Garrett sukks.

PHINS/YG.........

WE R SEEING THE RESULT OF OUR GARAGE MANAGER 4 YEARS ON THE TOP .......


I AM VERY SURE HE WILL BE FIRED ON THE FIRST CHANCE ROSS HAS

Their 3rd string receivers look better than our 1st strings

Phin 78... Please mention 1 team less talented than ours??... just one please!!

Dallas wr's knowing they wont make the team are auditioning for us. They know we need real wr's. LOL

THIS TEAM IS GOD AWFUL...no regular season will save them....trade moore while you still have time to get value in it.

Ireland must have some dirt on Ross
Why Ross hasn't fired him yet just blows my mind

YG.............WHEN YOU END YOUR POST WITH ...LOL ...


IS THAT MEANS ,YOU R TRYING TO ALERT US,THERE'S A JOKE SOME WHERE IN THERE OR YOU JUST LAUGHING ?

I know pre-season games don't mean anything but 0-4? You've got to be shitting me! There BETTER be a Major roster change by the start of the season.

Night folks.
In the best of all worlds,we've been hiding our true greatness for these 4 pre-season games, and against Houston we'll look like the '72 Fins.

Unfortunately, It appears optimism will be in short supply this year.

STILL A FAN.
Just not a believer.

Dashi doesn't believe the Fins will go after a Linemen. The Rookie Center looks good and Hicks and Jerry can Play OTackle.

Now on the Wr's?

If we get James Jones, Dashi doesn't think he need to learn the Playbook that Much. It's the Same System.

Maybe they will look for players coming out of WCO System? Might make it Easier to learn the Playbook.
Can we get 1 of those Cowboys WR?
