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.

7/11 > Chad Bumphis

Will someone tell me how the heck Tannehill was drafted in the 1st rd? He's just terrible.

Oy vey. 2014 will be the 18 th rebuilding year in the last 20.
FIRELAND found some real gems. Not!
Philbin looks clueless. Almost as clueless as Ross.
Oy vey!

Pat Devlin will lead the Comeback.

Can we PLEASE FIRE IRELAND NOW??

Damn, I am glad Thomas is out of there.

I have full confidence that our 1st stringers would be very competitive against the rest of the NFL's 3rd stringers......

If only it was 40 yrs ago and we had the great Joe Ferguson to lead us! GTFO!

dashi give it up. You've been dead wrong 19 times now.

Miller fumbles. Moore got the big contract, not DevWad.

Live and learn, don't wallow in your mire.

Ross/Ireland/Philbin/Tannehill are all incompetent.

Of course, the idea this year is to get to Tom Brady. DJ is looking great.

You know, I still can't get over how bad the Dolphins green jersey's look on TV ... Philbin's shirt shows up much better ... if' we're going to play bad, we should really work harder and "looking" good doing it.

miami was without 8 starters and there is no game planning so relax! lol

sack at the 19-wow!!!

14 Yard sack?

The RBs have looked good. I like Jonas Gray and the rookie from Florida.

Moore needs to get rid of the ball.

5TH CONSECUTIVE LOSING SEASON.

Please trade Moore.

Go for it ... what's the point in a chip shot field goal?

I am bored does anyone know when is Heat time?;)

It would be good if we cold sign some of these Cboys afterthey are cut.

No......no-no-no.......

We just suck so bad we're making their "CRAP" look good. A good team would be blowing out the Cowboys.....

Kyle Orton > Tannehill

Moore has the situational awareness of Chad Henne

Which would make you retch quicker:

Close-up of dog-poo on field, or close-up of Fireland's talent on the field?

(Hint: trick question-----they are one and the same).

Trade Tanny before he'sas worthless as Henne was.

Does anybody know how to block? 17-3.

The blue shirts look a little too fey.
The DAAAFINS have sucked worse and worse since they built that GD practice dome.

Oh no.............. Gillislee sucks. Ask Dashi, he'll tell you. He right 95% of the time.

Just ask him......

Wow ... are they playing that stupid Dolphins song after a field goal? Wow ... that's more embarrassing than losing.

Must be a fake YG...either that or he really did get pushed over the edge...strange comments from you tonight...sir...not good football posts...

I'm out...blog sucks serious ballz tonight...

Seasons starting...so I don't need to be here much...I got eyes...

I want to see my boy in the 2nd half.

Ireland made ANOTHER MESS

The koolaid drinkers here are beginning to "FLIP FLOP"...

.....And I thought that wasn't allowed here... ROTFLMAO!

It's the first preseason game.Real football and fin fans can only hope that nobody gets hurt.All the fake football fans need to just breathe and relax cuz all these negative comments are hilarious.

Dion Jordan needs more 1st team reps!

Crap team = Crap blog

Wow, did you see Dion hold that edge then make the tackle as a LB. Wow again.

Who is going to pay $ to watch this garbage team? LOL

I remember last year when I made the comment: The coaches don't have 'em ready to play. Same thing this year. "You play like you practice".

10-6 this season...wild card

What is the answer at right tackle ? Call Kansas City once more

Tony Sparano has to be laughing.

Right Tackle? Clabo has that held down.. Want to try again?

tyson clabo is the starting RT

Odds that Al Michaels or Chris Collinsworth ask Tuna about how badly he screwed over & screwed up the Dolphins?

Time to get Desperate another season in "Rebuilding Mode".....Time to get Joe Robbie,Don Shula back, and Dan Marino in the driver seat of this trashy team ;)

Clabo sux bad

Fireland: Tony is the assistant head coach of the Raiders ... I don't think he's laughing.

Saw no problems in the OL except for JMart on a couple of plays. However no consistent blocking throughout.

By the third home game, there will be more people on the sidelines than in the stands. So glad that Ross had his taxpayer raping scheme shoved up his arse. 5-11 is optimistic.

And people are lining up to watch this crap team at training camp???? LOL Ha Ha Stop drinking the kool-aid now!!!! They are, who we thought they are.....same old same old crap. Can't tackle can't block.

Waiting on the FanBoys to concoct positives out of the pure dreck we've witnessed thus far.

Oh yeah, I forgot: Wallace!

Miami is the third youngest team in the league so we are rebuilding, getting younger and better. haters gonna hate

I'm sure Tony is laughing at Irelands failure.

Will this finally be the year Ireland gets canned?
This franchise can't afford another year of his incompetence in judging talent

Luie,

GO away now or I will expose you again you idiot loser fake bs hommmo.

Hate how these announcers have to mention that Jeff Ireland used two picks for Jordan when he could have used a first and second for offensive line help. Never second guess a genius, guys!

It's not Ireland's fault.More like parcells for the bad drafts that set the fins back several years.thanks bill for taking the $ and quitting just like nick saban

L.Miller
J.Gray
M.Gillislee
D.Thomas

In that Order

Now being on Devlin.

Only positives to take away are our RB's and Dion Jordan. I really like Gillislee's hustle. Egnew also flashed on a couple plays.

Parcells is quite a guy. I like him.
