« Hits keep coming: Gates, Thigpen, Feinga also out tonight | Main | Tannehill outplays Moore, deserves chance to start »

Live blog of Dolphins preseason Game 1

It is the Miami Dolphins versus Tampa Bay.

No David Garrard (check the previous entries). No Clyde Gates or Brian Hartline, either.

So what to expect?

Vontae Davis is not starting despite the insistence of some in the media that he has not been demoted -- at least temporarily.

Matt Moore will start and is expected to get 15 plays or so. I expect Ryan Tannehill will follow and actually get work with the starters. This is a competition he's legitimately in, folks. He has a chance to win the starting job if he's better than Moore because Garrard has been all but  eliminated from the quarterback competition.

Interesting only to me: This Garrard injury raises questions. what the heck is the deal when a guy who has "loose bodies" on his knee, as the quarterback told Fox's Jay Glazer, is able to practice for three weeks with no issues?

And if he had those issues, how did he pass the team's physical?

I smell something here. And it ain't roses.

Anyway, live blog tonight. Meet me in the comments section.

40 year fan. I will NEVER go to a game again until we get rid of "Phins to the left, Phins to the right"

Worst Song Ever!!!!!!

Hey Armando this is Jim from Fort Lauderdale. I miss you on 640 and quit listening when you left. not the same show.

Nerves or rain

Gonna be a long year with this crew...

oops no td lol!


go for it!

Philbin better not kick a FG on fourth down.

Mando, Obviously he can't be declared starter cuz of 1 drive against backups, but what r your thoughts on him? U declared Henne did not have IT factor after 1 series..

Or, as we say in the trade, incomplete. Oookay then.

Unfortunately a good call from the refs, no TD

gotta hold on to the ball roberto

Go for it!!!

This kid throws like a man!

NO FIST PUMP please.

Anybody have a website with a live feed?

go for it!! Its the preseason!!!

no breaks for this rookie!!!

Why not put Chad Johnson in, if only to give Tannehill a shot at some serious confidence.



Bring back Joe Robbie. He knows more about football than Ross and smells better too.

Shees they've interviewed JT 8 times already.

@miked098 firstrowsports.eu click the american football tab and you should see the links for the game

although we are losing- we look ok. we ran for 7 yards on first down- 2nd and short defense is expecting run. What do we do run and lose 3 yards. Now 3rd and long the defense is expecting pass- and thats exactly what we did.


I know it's early- just trying to help coach for the future :)

would have liked to see a fade to wallace in the end zone there on 4th down, see if wallace can pull it down and if the kid can throw it

Why is Clay on 3 with it 4 down. Horrible pattern, especially with your QB rolling out.

at least it wasnt a pick six lol


Ugh! Clay and Tannehill have to realize that the corner was wide open, why didn't he cut up? he was blanketed on that sideline, throw the fade! you have to improvise!

would've liked to see points from the offense...PERIOD!!our new philosophy for this offense needs to be reworked!!!

Robbyhernz I was the one that said Henne didn't have IT. Mando chastised me for it but later came around. I caught hell from you guys for it. I still maintain the staff we had ruined Henne. I wish him success, seems like a great guy.

Mando, any word on McDaniel?

Naaaah, it must be a joke. A bad joke. Right?

We NEVER play the Bucs well. The Bucs however went 4 - 12 last year and thanks to Moore and Sparano leaving we went 7 - 9. Nothing to celebrate, but considering we were 0 - 7 and I suffered through it with Armando and Perk...

Did anyone tell the dolphins there was a game tonight?

Crunching numbers? Well....it's a free country, but Los Delfines r a joke.

6-10 last year Facts! LMAO!

Tony McDaniel returned to the game. All good.

Anyways, the sign is there. Ryan Tannehill is a Franchise QB.

Looks like Cam Cameron is coaching

Great! I have a Miniature pix here, can't see a whole lot.
Sorry to miss him back in.

Just popped a cold one in anticipation of a Fins rally.

Lamar miller needs to take over. Tannehill needs better plays

Tannehill > Moore right now.

What happened to Bob Griese? Wasn't he in the booth at game's start?

Oscar. Rookie mistake on 4th and goal, throwing to a covered receiver on the 3, instead of into the end zone.
To be expected, though.

Any way you cut it, this team was not read to play tonight.

Ireland needs to be fired

Philbin is very soft. Reminds me of Cameron.

Tannehill is playing against 2nd and 3rd stringers... on Tampa bay... looks confident though

IMAWriter, that throw could have been a completion...thrown too low

You guys that actually think preseason games mean ANYTHING are total simpletons.

I can't believe the Philbin bashing has started halfway through the first preseason game. Delightful fans.

Ireland showing his excellence in the booth

"I can't hold onto the ball...I'm learning from Ocho Stinko...sheeeiiiit" Roberto Wallace

cocoa, I was referring to the throw to Cay on 4th down.

Clay, I meant.

Much better by the D to start the 2nd half.

Cut the clown Chad. He is in the way. Let the other guys develop.

Rookie Jonathan Martin has taken every snap tonight at RT. Dolphins are getting him ready with maximum reps. I love that.

Reminds of Keith Sims and Richmond Webb in 1990.
