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.

WHAT IS DUMB DUMB ELMO TALKING ABOUT?
THERE ARE TONS OF VIDEO ON THE MIAMI DOLPHINS APP.

I would sit Miller for the rest of the game. Philbin needs to send a message.

That's why the extra Game. These young guys are extra-raw.

Pretty good run defense at the Goal line when you consider Starks and Odrick are sitting.

Dashi??? Miller fumbled??? Is this accurate???

Shouldn't that fumble result in a benching?

That's what they did to Reggie.

wow guys, calling for the end of the season after being in camp for two weeks and one series..
band wagon fans please leave.. youre not wanted

Blow me repost. I make fools out of all you trolls. I only entertain myself by chiding you. You think I WAS the one getting hot? Then you're the idiot. I was laughing the whole way through that episode. Do everyone a favor, don't try to guess what I'm up to, I'm playing chess, you're stuck on Checkers. Now watch the game before I call your Mom and tell her to shut your TV and make you go to sleep little girl.

Fumbling at your own 8yd line is totally inexcusable!!!!!!!!!!!!

Miller should be benched till 2nd half

Too soon? --> #Fireland

This should be Tannehills last drive.

fins

The hole was wide open. The handoff was there. That is on Miller. Davis just saw his first NFL pick play; I hope he learned something. We look like crap. Let's see how our boys respond to this adversity.

May not be a total loss, Shark Week at 9:00

DC.

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!

Miami should enjoy this HOF game. Be the last time anyone of them ever make it there again.

I admire your game day intensity. Look forward to seeing it for many Sundays to come!

Better to fumble in the PreSeason than Week 1 vs. Cleveland. Get it out your system now douchebags.

Relax. U people r funny!

Rb depth is going to be a huge concern for this team. Someone needs to step up.

Tannehill needs all of the live action he can get. Needs to play at least a half tonite.

Looks like it's going to be another long season for the "Fins" ;)

See that game speed. Keep talking ignoramouses.

Nice run by Miller. I still would have sat him after that fumble.

How fast is Miller? He got that slow looking speed.

running game.

miller is friggin fast

OK Miller is shutting us all up right now. If he can hang on to the football, it looks like he will be good.

Settle down Tanny!

Bad pass by Tannehill.

2nd pass Tanne threw behind the wr

Tanne needs to be WAY MORE ACCURATE than he is showing.

Sloppy so far...also August 4th so you know...STFU...

WhoTH is #87?

Tannehill's looking like a bum tonight.

martin got blown up on that last 3rd down play. gotta do better

Ahhhhhh!!!!!

Jonathen Martin just got blown up. He sucks!

Matt Moore to the rescue.

Tanne needs to slow down.. seems he doesnt have confidence in his line with how he is rushing

Tannehill may need more than 15 plays tonight.

Woodshed, it's all practice 'til I unleash the hounds Week 1. Let's go MIAMI!

Looks like Tannehill has regressed....

So the Dolphins don't have a left tackle, so what! They got a GREAT special teams player who will eventually contribute on defense with the third pick in the first round. Those who are puzzled by Jeff Ireland's decisions simply don't recognize genius.

Tannehill looking like crap

Martin sucks.

#87 in McNutt

We basically gave up Davon Bess to get Gibson. No way Bess drops that pass. I thought that was the worse move of the off season for us.

I smell a Davis INT. Welcome to the NFL kid!

Martin got beat and looked slow on that 3rd down play...

The exact thought that went through my head when they resigned Matt Moore... Dang im going to have to hear it all season about MM needs to play

Chris Carter is an idiot.

I've seen enough of T'hill, send in Matt More.

Is that our first team D getting lit up by the Dallas scrubs?

That's why it's good to play another Team.

Don't be ridiculous YG...are you just trying to talk shyt??? Or are you serious???

Jack,

Im serious...
