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:

Will Davis is weak sauce


Miller, 4 carries for 6 yards. That is not exactly giving the coaches any warm fuzzies.

You forget Lamar Miller has 2 catches for 3yds.

Just saying.......................................

Yeah, Cause the 20+ Yds he got called back where also his fault.

The Coaches know what to do. They know who the Starter is.

Don't worry, You are right, D.Thomas will be the Starter.

To bad you will switch your name like the Punk you are when it happens. And aren't man Enough to stand up for what you say. And That is The TRUTH you little Sissy.

Were

Was it Dasi whoclamored how great Lamar Miller is

need to send will davis back to iowa, he has been chumped again on that TD

One could describe Millers performance tonight as being Yellow.

They are giving him every chance. Twice as many carries as Thomas and still fewer yards.

This owner has no clue how bad Ireland is or his team is. None!

Dolphins are still a few years away from winning playoff games. Still need someone to pick better draft picks, a better QB and a better Head Coach. It all starts with a better owner and that means it will be a few years before the Fins are winning again against teams above 500, playoff teams. They will be forever 7-9 with this owner keeping incompetent people in place.

Fans are pissed that they know more about personal than Ireland does.

Good QB's dont need a great OL.

Dashi,
I'm glad to see you bringing manliness into your conversations.
Keep up the good work.

Dashi out,

I see it is only us 2 on this blog.

Me and Your 1000 character.

Looks like a good thing Keller's only signed to a 1yr contract................

keller jus got hurt. great

Oh yes, Miller can break the big ones when the oline holds (cheats). Big deal.

2 passes for 3 yards? Wow.

acl gone

Looks gone for the year...............

Fukk!

ACL?

There goes Keller for the year. SHIAAAAT

Keller gone for the season!

That is a BIG TIME BULLSHIIIIIIIIIIIIT TACKLE

Bye bye keller

Cheap shot

Lamar Miller and Ryan Tannehill have both been dissapointing.

Everybody saying goodbye to Keller. He's probably cut too............

o...GREAT!!!!!

yea he's not comin back this year. i think the rest of the starter aren't gonna play any more this game

This is why they should have stayed at 12 and taken Eifert. We'd have had an extra second round pick too.

Now we are screwed.

Vegas knows best.

Egnew. BWHAHAHHAHA

Guess Egnew is gonna make the team now...

Keller done! Knee shot. Ugh!

Wow huge injury. He was going to be that seam TE to help open up the outside.

Fraud,

We have a bunch of Sissies here who cry when you put them in their place, but they love to sexually harass. Some very Hypocritical F'ggots if you ask me.

Tannehill still inaccurate.................

Can we get Fasano back?

Looks bad, hoping for the best.

that was a bad hit. he went for keler's knee

keller's down - hes out for the year.... now the crap starts.... 6-10 looking real good!!

Tannehill is so inaccurate. He throws the ball behind his receivers a lot.

Engew ? Boy we in trouble now!! No TE hopefully pickup a derivable vet.

Thomas looks by far the best fins rb tonite.........

Hopefully just a Knee Sprain.

come on Ryan!!! wide open shots you gotta connect

Keller done.

We are inserious trouble.

EGNEW.

HAHAHAHHA

hey the guppies still have sinknew!!!

That run by Thomas was beautiful

wow Can Bob Griese be a bigger horses ass??? Keller just had his knee blown out and he says the Dolphins need depth at the position... GrieseBall was a mediocre QB and now is the worst announcer in the history of the Phins. The best part about the first week of the reg season is these scrub announcers go back to picking their noses in their arm chairs at home.

If Tanny gets hurt we will IMPROVE with Matt Moore.

Tannehill holds the ball to long. He needs to get rid of it and not take the sack.

THOMASSSSSSSSSS!

OK Thomas should be our starting RB. He is winning the job so far.

Empty backfield 1 2 3 throw ... that was on T-Hill

Tannehill pocket awarness is 0...

Man, I hate that for Keller. Hope it's better than it looks.

I said it before and I'll say again, Ryan Tannehill is NOT ready for the NFL. Keller's injury is Crapenhill's fault, throwing to the covered receiver and not the open receiver. And the O-line is putrid!

We now don't have a TE. Dion Simms is going to have to improve fast. The other TEs on the team are duds.

And that was a cheap shot on Kellar.

I often trash the Fins.

But I will say, I was very excited about Keller.

CHEAP SHOT taking him down. Awful.

Keller done for the year he didnt even want to walk off the field under his own pressure. Hes done

Nice to see this blog in mid-season form.

I agree that Tannehill threw that ball behind Kellar and put his receiver in danger.
