Live blog with Wallace playing

JACKSONVILLE -- Mike Wallace is playing tonight.

That's the first thing you should know. So will Brian Hartline, as I reported earlier in the weeks. So the Dolphins will finally have their starting QB-to-WR battery this preseason.

QB Ryan Tannehill will play about a quarter tonight.

This is live blog night. That means get aboard and see you there.

...That was familiar..Chad Henne looking in total command at the end of a half..

Tell me if this sounds familiar..First down..decent gain. 2nd down...Holding, back em up. 2nd down. Screen pass. 3rd down. meaningless gainer for 20 yards in the middle of the field..End of half.

minnesota throwing all over texans tonight

The 1st defense played well tonight. The D-line played as advertised. They put a lot of pressure on Gabbert. Moore is good back up only. He consistently throws more picks than T-Hill.

i hope the fans that were jumping up and down when miami selected DION JORDAN are the same fans currently CRYING about the O-LINE... another defensive end was a luxury..we NEEDED the best left tackle available, and philly got him, in fact, i think he was the best tackle OVERALL....i really hope this dion jordan choice over a left tackle does NOT come back to nullify the upgrades we made in freeagency!(mike wallace, gibson, keller..) i just hope tanny has some time to be able to be make those deep throws!

The O just needs to play more. Consistency only comes with repetition. You can't simulate game speed. Not even in practice. They stunk last year on offense too & finally showed some life in game 3 vs. Atlanta.

Martin looked fine tonight, even pancaked a guy on the sack Tanny took. Samuda looked awful. We need Jerry back. I think they'll be alright when he comes back.

Tanny was flushed every drop back it seemed & still managed to complete better than 50%. Compare that to sanchez who throws around 55% and he has had a great oline.

I expected nothing from Wallace tonight. No need to risk the guy. However, to anyone who has eyes & could see, the 1st completion to Keller was a result of Wallace taking coverage away.

Wallace will have an impact whether he catches the ball or not.

Henne 9/11 87 yds so far. Gabbe was 5/10 19 yds int

No wonder the Steelers did not want to resign the greedy Wallace. Marvin McNut had more catches in the first half than Wallace. How can the fins pay Calvin Johnson money for Wallace. I hope the Wallace 18 million a year contract does not come back to hunt us.

Chad Henne will tease the Jaguars with mediocre QB play for years to come. I feel bad for them.

IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You make YG look smart

Orlando, it was actually 12 million a year.

The oline played well in the 4th series. Need a better showing than that if they want to get out to a fast start. It took them a while to get going but they did move the ball.

Devlin!!

Again agree 100% Nice to have someone on who actually gets what's going on during the game!

i am sure that Wallace will remain the prey while we dolphins fans remain the predator. LOL Orlando Dullphan thinks McNutt is better than Wallace, so much so that Wallace is going to come back and hunt us! Oh no not his rifle!

Yeah, a guy with the last name McNutt isn't going to beat out any of the top 5 receivers on our team LOL

hey Orlando Dullphan I McNutted last night, did you? LOL

LMAO!!! Armando won't even come into his own blog to talk. He is on Twitter. This is all the fault of you Trolls and name changing morons. Can't even deal with his blog. Nice going.

NeMO,

I believe it was an average of 18 million a year. It may be 12 million this year. I did not like the signing. He is just not worth that kind of money. He is earning more than Brandon Marshall (10 Million a year). He is not half the player Marshall is.

Again No Catches tonight. I have a lot of Steeler friends that thought that the fins were crazy for paying that kind of money for Wallace. I hope I am wrong but he is not off to a good start.

WTF happened on last Jags series?
Henne was driving the field again so they took him out.
Ha ha ha

f4l

You DID say the line would be better with Pouncey at Guard and Samuda at Center. Samuda...stinks. Basically,

Orlando, here's my opinion on it. He's going to make plays and serve as a decoy because of his speed opening up other players like Keller.

As for Steelers fans. I bet if they resigned they'd have a lot better opinion of him.

I understand your skepticism though, but I'm hoping for the best here.

0 catches after 1 qtr of football isnt a big deal.

Bobby,

Mando has made YG his spokesman.

Some of us Bloggers know more Football than Mando.

I rather read some of the Veterans on this Blog than Mando.

The people ripping on Wallace are doing it because they are trolls. Anyone with a brain know Wallace is too valuable to risk getting him hurt in a meaningless preseason game.

When the starters play into the 3rd is when I'd expect Wallace to get some looks. Not until then.

Even the Jaguar kicker sucks. We complain about the fins, man I would hate to be a Jags fan.

See what a smart QB can do>Gabbert>Henne.

Why is M.Moore still playing?

fin4life shaves Mando's balls often...likes em hairless.

Fair enough NeMo and The Woodshed Gang. It is still early and the season has not started. Wallace will probably be OK but they paid a lot for him and he has to be better than that. For that kind of money he has to be a pro bowl player.

I hope he proves me wrong and has a 1500 yard season with 10 TD receptions.

My boy seems to be hurt.

Yea, you expect him to play like a pro bowler in the preseason LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But I Don't Switch Names! Mando Said So...!

@9:13 & 9:15 ROTFFLMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!! I also wondered about the KILLER 18 Mil contract that hunts!

Wallace signed a 5 Yr / 60 Mil deal but 27 is the guaranteed portion spaced over the next 3 Yrs. although the bulk is due 2015 were it goes to a little over 15 Mil that Yr.

Dashi considers himself a proud veteran of this blog. How utterly pathetic. Get a life lmao.

Dan Carpenter, thanks for the memories.

Caleb Sturgis...WOW!!!

Dashi shaves fin4life's balls...

Dan Carpenter just got cut.......

58yd fg by Sturgis........

ROTFLMAO...............

Sweet FG by the rookie. Moore has to stop taking those long sacks. He needs to throw ball away and didn't seem to learn that from last week.

LOL,

It is a long season. So I get it but I am just responding to those that say he can be a decoy and it is good enough if he opens up the field with his speed. IMO for that kind of money your statistics have show that you are one of the top receivers in the league. He needs 90 catches, 1500 yards, and 10 TDs to prove he is worth the money they paid for him. It is only the preseason but it would have been nice to see 1 catch.

Carpenter just text his real estate agent......

The house is now up for sale................

dashi's profile

Uneducated
No car
Menial job
Writes like a 3rd grader
Has about as much potential as a fried plaintain

Yet, in his canned bean mind, he does life better than us....while waiting for the bus full of welfare folks sweating profusely in the sweltering humidity.

Got it.

Even a recent college grad wtih a red honda lives better than that.

I hope he proves me wrong and has a 1500 yard season with 10 TD receptions.

Posted by: Orlando Dolphan | August 09, 2013 at 09:23 PM

You may be disappointed then. I would expect 1200 yds and 8-10 TDs. Its what he does for his teammates that makes him important. He creates space for all the other skill players to make plays.
Honestly, he could play worse than any year he had in Pittsburgh and it wouldn't matter to me so. Just as long as we are winning games and our offense is finding other ways to win.

Moore is what he is....and very up and down QB....capable of some big plays but just as capable as doing some very dumb things!!!

Moore's situational awareness is horrible.

There's my other boy!!

Will Davis!!!

College is for losers...Wallace got 18 mil with no college education.

AIIIR BALLLLL!!!! what a gift!!!

You DID say the line would be better with Pouncey at Guard and Samuda at Center. Samuda...stinks. Basically,

Posted by: Mike | August 09, 2013 at 09:17 PM

I feel the athletic ability of Pouncey in the type of blocking scheme were trying to implement would be awesome and he is a Pro Bowler at all 3 spots (LG,C,RG) but thought Samuda could hold his own and in live competition but with the bullets flying he's faltering, I won't deny it and were not better for it! I do wonder though why FA pick up Louis isn't even pushing 1st team snaps? I guess that leg injury was more serious than they thought when they signed him, at this rate I guess we wait for Jerry which apparently should be in time for the 4th (normally 3rd) Pre-Season dress rehersal.

there is no depth on the O-line...horrible!!!

fin4life...back from shaving his balls.

OK fin4life, 15 or 18 million what is the difference. He is one of the highest paid receivers in the league. He is earning more than Brandon Marshall. He better have Brandon Marshall type stats!

Refuses to shave his a s s..says Mando likes it the way it is.

What's that make for Davis? 8 or 9 INTS this year so far? Need to get him on the field more and probably sooner.

Will Davis should consider himself lucky....that was basically a hail mary duck right in his hands.....

He better hold on to the ball better than Marshall too. I doubt he'll be a better player than Marshall. Ireland screws up again.

You ain't paying the mofo and if we are winning and scoring points elsewhere, who cares what his stat sheet looks like?

Who said Will Davis can't tackle?

Hey Orlando when was the last time you McNutted?

I am paying Wallace, because I buy tickets and merchandise. For what he's being paid, he needs to play better than Marshall did for the Phins. Otherwise he wasn't worth it.
