Live blog of Dolphins vs. Cowboys here

CANTON, OHIO -- Welcome to the 2013 season. Well, welcome to the preseason.

The Dolphins take on the Dallas Cowboys tonight and everyone is on the edge of their seat waiting to see if Ryan Tannehill and his new toys -- receivers Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson, tight end Dustin Keller, and running back Lamar Miller -- are on the same page.

Well, Wallace will not play. Neither will Brian Hartline, as you know. And Tannehill is only expected to go a quarter at most and most likely much less than that.

[Update: Philbin told the NFL Network, Tannehill would play 10-15 plays.]

Some things to watch tonight:

Josh Samuda: He's starting at right guard tonight. If he plays well, suddenly the concern about the John Jerry injury and the mixing and matching that has been going on for a week is addressed. Suddenly it won't be so urgent for Jerry to get healthy quickly and be in shape. If he doesn't play well? The search for a RG alternative continues.

The back end receivers: Yes, the Dolphins have a solid plan for their No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 wide receivers. There are jobs open at No. 4 and No. 5. Marvin McNutt is obviously everyone's choice at the moment. I like Chad Bumphis and Jeff Fuller. We'll see if Kenny Stafford, Brian Tyms and Julius Pruitt will also get a chance.

The first round pick -- Dion Jordan: Is he going to get off to a fast start? Is he going to take some time to warm up before we see something exciting? The bottom line, folks, is Jordan needs a lot of work and he's expected to get plenty of that tonight.

The other CB competition: Veterans Dimitri Patterson and Richard Marshall are the presumed candidates fighting for the starting job. We'll see. Personally, the future of the position is either Jamar Taylor or Will Davis, or both. And so I'm watching them. And I know they're going to get a lot of snaps.

By the way, as always, we are live on this blog during a Dolphins event. Except that starting tonight, the way we do it will be different. The Herald is employing a cover-it-live application going forward. I don't know if you'll like it more or less. We'll cross that bridge later. But that's how it will be.

So join me in the live blog by posting on the application.

After the first quarter, we will see a lot of scrubs.

I am eager to see all of the rookies, Jonas Gray, the OL, and some of the young receivers.

We will not see much of Tannehill, Wake, Grimes, Soliai, Ellerbe, etc. but I am happy to have football again. Yea!

That will fix everything.

Are we wearing new home uniforms? if so the SUCK the look like practic jerseys

Jason Garrett sukkks.

Notice the bloggers on the feed. Nobody you know? You know them all...they are there under their real names.

Everyone is a troll here. Everyone.

Moore's contract shows he is #1

Posted by: Shula | August 04, 2013 at 08:04 PM

A #1 backup right? You have to be more careful of how you write your posts. Someone might actually take it out of context and believe Moore should be a starter.

I'm back

Are we wearing new home uniforms? If so they SUCK! They look like practice jerseys

So Carpenter can get beat out by an Inconsistent Rookie cause of his Contract. And Mind you carpenter is a Former Pro bowl Player and a Starter.

But Moore deserves more than T-Hill to be his Backup.

Excited as h-e double hockey stick.
Wanna see

We'll see.

No Dez Bryant?

Where is the D?

They are running at Shelby.

So far, no good

Our D STINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our run defense has looked soft so far.

We suck

Lots of missed tackles.

Where is Vernon?

Who is calling the D plays?

Looks like they never addressed the tackling issues in training camp.

Why is Jordan not starting?

That #23 seems to have good hands.

A special teams miscommunication.

Vernon is out with a sore groin.

Did Jordan even practice during training camp?

I don't really care what Miami does with their logo ... I like the old one ... but the color of the jersey does not play well on TV.

Orton > Tannehill

Why is Jordan not starting?

Good question. No Vernon or Jordan, and it showed Shelby needs to set the edge better.

Yeah, they are going 3 TEs on us.

Bend don't break , but concerned about giving up the edge three times to the right on that drive.


It looks like D'nofrio is getting some work with the dolphins to start preseason

Sit him. For the game.


first play of the season is a fumble.


Dolphins SUCK

Miller fumbles on the first play. Wow, that was pathetic.

Terrible job on the handoff!

We suck.

Miller sucks...dashefuck, Miller fumbles you dikpoke!

really lamar???


I've seen enough. Same old Dolphins. GARBAGE AGAIN

get those out of the way

Face guarding

It's going to be a long year Armando. You picked a helluva time to stop being a Republican.

If Tannehill is only playing one series. It will be a short night for him.

LOL...really lamar???

Guy, our coaching is horrible.


Why do you have to be such an ignorant, unobservant fool like your other few buddies here that constantly feed ETF and his other few names? He has admitted to his other names and load swalling antics many many times, and you FOOOOOOLS still take his posts seriously.

Wake up idiot! He just wants to get a rise out of you, like he has done time and again. And one day he will be cumming in your mouth!

Except for the turnovers and penalties, Dolphins look great!

can y'all come the hell down? it's the 1st preseason game of the year. they'll be better. just worry if that happens on the 1st play of the regular season

Bench Miller!

Here we go again. Lol

What ya got to say now DashIdiot fool? You be a dumbfk

If Dallas scores here, Miami would be officially the worst red zone defense in the league. From first to worst.

Ireland may need to start packing his bags. If this is any indication of what we are going to be seeing, it is going to be a long year.

It's the first PreSeason game, take a chill pill everyone. It means NOTHING. We can lose every game and go into the Season and be great. Have some faith!

Not looking good
Offense and defense
