Live blog of Dolphins vs. Texans here

HOUSTON -- The Dolphins have never beaten the Texans, but I don't care about that tonight.

You know what I care about most?

Lamar Miller.

I want him to win the starting running back job. No, that doesn't mean I am rooting for him over other players at running back. I mean I want him to perform at such a level as to leave no question about which player should be the Dolphins starting running back by the time the night is through.

That hasn't happened yet because, well, I don't think Miller's been given much of a chance. He's only gotten four carries in the preseason.

How is anyone supposed to win a job with four scant opportunities in two games?

As the starters are expected to go at least one quarter, maybe more, perhaps Miller can get 10 carries this game so he can get a feel for the competition and get a good chance to show his stuff. Let's hope.

Rishard Matthews, Lance Louis and Jamar Taylor -- none of whom have played this preseason -- are dressed and expected to play tonight.

And, of course, there is a live blog for your participation on tap:

YOU GUYS NEED TO LEARN WHO PLAYS WHERE ON YOUR OWN TEAM. THAT SACK WAS ON CLABO'S SIDE.

NO WONDER SOME HERE HATE MARTIN SO MUCH. YOU GIVE EVERY SACK TO HIM NO MATTER WHICH SIDE IT COMES FROM.

GEESH...........................

17 And 0, You think Sean Smith is Related to Ted (Opps I dropped it) Ginn????

Tannehill sacked....Samuda

Tanne is refusing to run? Pocket collapsed and he just took the sack.

link?

Disappointing Miller couldn't out juke that one.

a CB that can intercept the pass well how refreshing. That guy is easily. Damn Samuda struggling already


SACK WAS MORE ON TANNEHILL ANYWAY. HIS HEAD WAS BRIEFLY TURNED THAT WAY ENOUGH TO SEE HIS RT GETTING BEAT AND HE STILL DIDT USE HIS ATLTICISM TO GET OUT OF THE WAY.

FOLKS, I TELL YOU RIGHT NOW ITS GOING TO BE A BUMPY RIDE WITH TANNEHILL......

Cause Getting Hit before turning around is the easiest way to break a Tackle.

Sure.

JackSparrow,

Kris will be by to chat with you soon. Maybe more....

Dashi, Miller 220?????
Where does he hide it??

Going on 10 years or more the OL still garbage!!! I wish we had Shula to pick OL guys at least they know how to protect the QB.

He is about 6ft.

Muscle is Smaller than Fat.

system 4-3 allow runners to go outside remember Dallas Jacksonville and today Texas

anyone find a link

Someone..has to be better than Samuda. Again...he's ready to be a starter.

Hey where is that awesome run stopping defensive line

I thought Tanne had some wheels? He waiting too long to make a decision when the first read is off the table.

His progressions are slooooowwwww.

Tate sure goes down Easy.

F'ing Joke.

correction Samuda is not ready.

Wake!!!!!

This Defense will be Dominating.

Don't lie yelu. Miller had the ball and turned and couldn't make a move. Let's be objective please.

why call a fair catch when no one is 5 yards near you?

GTFOH,

Pounce was late getting out and Crushing was already about to tackle him as soon as he got the Ball.

But your right. You are always right.

O has -6yards offense

correction Samuda is not ready.

HELL, LETS JUST MOVE HIM OVER TO STARTING CENTER LIKE PINHEAD4LIFE SAYS................

Wake about it for defense. Can't believe Ireland was screwing around with his contract.

Hopefully louis or jerry can get healthy quick an overtake samuda as the starting right guard

A punter named Shapiro.
Ha ha ha ha.
Now I've seen everything.

That goes to show you that this OL coach and philbin don't know a good OL men even if it's starring them in the face!! But great defense. Why even draft a hurt pass rusher when this team needed OL help. That's why I say fire FIRELAND worst GM in the NFL!
IMO.

Right Guard is killing us. Tannehill had no chance to get set.

I could care less who is right. Let's not make things up just because you are rooting for the guy. If he becomes the #1, I'll make sure to send you a gold star.

egnew comes in and gets called for holding immediately. nice

This offense is a JOKE.

Its like the early 2000s all over again!

Great defense, sucky offense.

So pathetic.

This defense is playing awfully damn well. Those guys are going to give OC's nightmares. Someone coming free every play on the DL.

Okay, yeah, Miller be going down too damn easy.

holy crap egnew was with the starters

Send your mother the Gold star and an A for Effort.

Clay false start

I honestly can't say Miller is impressing here.

that was nick blitz pickup by miller

good lord... this offense really sucks... they look afraid!!

Wow, another 7-9 season, gauging by this offense.

We would be don't 14 to Brady before this offense finds the keys to its ignition..........

The more things change the more things stay the same.

This team will never resemble a consistent professional NFL team.

Miller drops an easy pass. I'm telling you, Thomas has excellent hands. No way he drops that gimme.

Armando LAMAR LOOKS LIKE HE'S NO READY FOR BIG THE
SHOW

These refs are bought.

I'll give Miller a C- so far, and that is already being generous.

how do you drop that!

Too many dumb penalties so far.

The Dolphins offense is a circus.

A THREE RING CIRCUS

3 straight piss poor out of the gates. What will the homerotics say now.

You can bet we'll be the trolls because we see it straight..........

This team is undisciplined. Worse than I've seen in a while.

Reggie!!!! I like bush. :).

I never thought that I would say this but I miss John Jerry. Samuda should not even make the team. He is terrible.

Just saying hello.

Damn sure hope the defense can score points this year.

i think it ´s not their sharpest performance ... again!

Solia is a beast. They have to resign him.
