« 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.

The team looks terribly coached. YIKES!

Reminds me of getting Jake Long injured for nothing.

tj, you guys that think that preseason games don't mean anything are village idiots!

Tannehill? Eh?

It makes no sense to start Moore or Garrard. Get Tannehill going. This team ain't going to win jack this year, use the season wisely.

Tannehill, no Tannehill, this is shaping into a total snorefest. Wish I had a nice woody now just to stay awake.

we might be the quickest team in the history of NFL to go three and out on an offensive possession...WOW!

@IMAWriter, Ok cool

Some day our D will learn that saying you're elite doesn't make you elite. You need I actually play good football to be elite, which we didn't see tonight.

I'm always confident but this might just be a long long year. Garrard hurt, bad luck, sloppy.

This team and coaches need a lot of work!

Can we get Brandon Marshall back?? lol

1 positive note so far. Our yards per completion is over 12 yds

for the love of god, its preseason, can we please take some shots downfield already!!!

THIS TEAM IS WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE! PATHETIC!!

isnt this supposed to be a west coast offense..?? why are we runnin the ball so much...??

Lamar Miller=Unimpressive!!!

Looks like another " Bite the Dust" season for the "lowly Fins" .....The "Joe Robbie curse" continues....

i agree this team is really bad so start tanny and let him learn all year, he will get beat up bad but be ready next year

Nice throw Tanny

You guys miss me yet? I could have had this team at least kick 3 FGs by this point in the game. FIST PUMP!

hard knocks tuesday should be very interesting

if tanny plays entire second half u know fins will win the game, not that it matters but hes throwing some lazors

I want to do a fist pump up JI's pooper. He used to enjoy that.

i knew our offense sucked and moore blows, so no biggie. bad part was watching d just get eaten up by a bad offense

nice bullet throw!!

Need to get Martin a hearing aid. LOL.
Whoo, so nice plays.
Tannehill looking good, yeah it's against the 3rd string, but hopeful.

jets have 3 points, sparano went crazy after they got the fg, he was pumped,lol

Have to agree with Bill. Let Tanny start and go out there and sling. That was my biggest complaint about Henne. They made him play "safe" and he never learned.

In an attempt to keep our playbook a secret, we've decided to run just 1 offensive and 1 defensive play. Both plays are similar as the players are required to stand and watch.

Not a bad drive..

now we are having fun

TOUCHDOWN!!!! BABY RT!!!!!

Nice drive by Tannehill!

clay u have to like also

He might start...

nice drive by tannehill, albeit against the 2nd and 3rd strings. but he's showing a lot of promise

Tannehill overcomes a 1st and 20 to throw a td pass. Havent seen anything like that since the heydeys of Marino. LOL

Let the Tannehill era begin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

let em throw, there u go!!!

damn that was beautiful....

Yep, I like Clay...

Touchdown!
Mando, I TOLD you.
Time for another Yuengling! LOL
As drinking a cold one is good luck, I need to pop a few more, I believe.

I like the confidence Tannehill seems to have in the redzone. It makes a pleasant change.

I like it

Freakin Ryan tannehill needs time with the ones! Man he can make all the throws!! Much better than I thought he was going to be. Plenty of zip and nice spirals but also nice touch too. He may be the real deal.

well at least hard knocks will be good this week...

I havent seen accuracy like this since Pennington except Tannehill has a rope of an arm!

by third pre season game he will be ready to go 3 quarters vs a teams one d

Damn, I thought the ghost of special teams past had died. Sparano's gotta be loving it!

BillC did Sparano actually fist pump?
Aw crap, kickoff return.

nice special teams !!!!*lmao*

you guys are lame fans, im ashamed of u all

Henne threw it hard and fast. The kid does the same, but puts it on the receivers. Lol

This guy Trusnik is impressive!

Would love to see Tannehill play the entire rest of the game. As soon as they sit Tannehill Im done with this game for tonight too. LOL

jets still couldnt score,lol hilarious. the offense looks like a high school offense

Sparano, the gift that keeps on giving.

T-Hill looks better than the "gamer"

Yea it's against less competition but T-Hill knows for u to run fast pace u can't miss passes. 3 & out happen. T-Sizzle completes at a higher Pct% than Moore.

I know it's only 1 game. But can we kill the T-Hill looks like Henne Stuff now.

Also T-hill is way more Athletic than TurnOver Moore.

Mando, with Garrard out, I let Tannehill start. Sink or swim, he's getting the pay, let him prove himself. The Dolphins have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Look the kid did everything but score in the final 3 minutes of the first half. Should have been caught, not an easy catch but still. Then that last drive was impressive. That jerk Odin needs to eat some tannehill crow!!
