Dolphins at Bills: Live blog plus inactives

Creeping closer to game time today and here's what's up:

Cornerback Dimitri Patterson is active for the first time since Week 2 against Indianapolis. He still is not starting. Nolan Carroll will continue to be the starter.

Middle linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (shoulder) is out today as expected. Jason Trusnik will start in his place.

The other inactives are Pat Devlin, Michael Gillislee, Josh Kaddu, Will Davis, Danny Watkins and Dallas Thomas.

If you haven't done so already, kindly catch up with my column today that should offer perspective on where the Dolphins are today despite the fact they haven't had a lot of success lately. It's good.

I don't see a lot of obvious changes or tweaks from the Dolphins other than, as I reported earlier this week, there should be quite a few screen passes today. At least that's the plan.

And as always on game day, there's a live blog. Join me inside the live blog.

Sherman is the villain as much as Clabo. Stupid play call. Worst scenario, we punt, get the Bills back on their 10.
Wow what a run. Damn carpenter makes the stop

Clabo makes Columbo look all pro.

The worst play calling I've seen since...Miami played Baltimore. Absolutely inexcusable. If Philbin wants to stubbornly stand by Sherman it is time too for his own seat to get warm. Fire Sherman tonight!

It's simple - If the QB played for the OC in college and hasn't improved; he's not the future. This franchise will be stuck in the mud as long as Ireland is picking the talent.

comeon another pick 6

its men versus boys up front....Bills Men.

God, why can't Sean Payton be our OC?

T-hill has time to get intercepted or sacked.
One more play.

That was interference.

just. run. the fu***ng. ball.

Interference...I'm late on the view. Never looked back

Wide open for TD, but no one expects Hennehill to make that.

What a joke this all is

unreal...Bills give up and chance for a crazy big play. Nope.

I cannot believe that they did not gain 15 or 20 yards there. This team is pathetic.

Take a knee, no need to risk it.

these loser will be 4-12 if they are lucky

this offensive line is so bad I cant even believe it anymore. They are horrible.

I am not one who constantly bashes the Dolphins - but this is ridiculous. We are at home (in the heat), two weeks rested - big divisional game, going against a bad team - with a third string quarterback .. we have been told we are rebuilding, this is our second year with the coach, second year with the future franchise quarterback - This is so disappointing. There should be NO SUGARCOATING this from anyone! Coaches and owner alike must admit - this thing is off track - No "we will work out these mistakes" comments. Own up!

wide open, no touch. You now HAVE to say Tanny can't make that throw even semi-consistantly. Should have been a TD.
Can't excuse him any longer. It IS Henne pt 2.

Not even one pass completed.
This team is a disgrace. T-hill should be benched the rest of the year. This QB is not the future, nor the present, nor nothing.

still all most got sacked with a 2 man rush

Absolutely deserved to lose this.

Terrible all around.

Two bad teams playing each other. The worst team lost.

Meanwhile Brady ties the game in final seconds.

Sherman and Clabo should be fired right now.

Way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory - Dolfins - yes you are and always will be mediocore

Carpenter is all smiles!!

This loss is on Clabo and Philbin for starting him again.

There you have it. Many here were predicting Bill/Jets sweep. Funny how reality plays out.

Reality states the Dolphins are not even a good team, let alone very good team.

this team is bad......nuff said!!!

I Love This Blog

this organization always finds a way to blow games that should have easily been wins. Most of this game is on coaching.

Just pathetic. I am getting so tired of watching this mess. Absolutely no way in hell they should have lost this game even after a horrible 1st quarter

Sam,
It's not that funny

Fire everyone in Miami when you can draft Winston, then hire Jimbo Fisher and trade as much as you need to in the draft to get Winston

The NFL is EXPOSING THE FRAUD called the Miami Dolphins.

look at you pathetic trolls blaming tannehill

did you not see how his line couldnt block at all and give him 2 seconds to throw the ball??????????

I am so disgusted right now. I am not watching anymore football. The fins are now 1-2 at home.

Forget about the playoffs. Looking forward to the draft again.

I really like Tanny as a man, but apparently he doesn't have the magic that you have to have to ascend to at least a top 10 QB.
I blame Sherman, the O-Line coach, the O-Line, and Philbin, for not having the balls to make a change at play caller earlier this year.

We were beaten by a team that, with this QB shouldn't win ANY games.
SHERMAN, Claybo MUST GO.

What a disgrace of a football team.2 weeks to prepare,and this what they came up with?Thad Lewis,a practice squad player at Qb for buffalo made plays on our crappy D.3-0 seems like an eternity ago.Can't wait to hear Philbin back talk his way out of this pathetic performance.And of all the kickers,had to be Carpenter to win it.

I am pretty impressed, they have weathered a 3-0 start and are pretty much out of the playoffs before Halloween. Beat those odds, boys!

Ross/Ireland how's that extension working out right now?

Until Ross sells this team, I will never spend a dime to see this team. What an absolute joke. The first 3 games of the season was a mirage. This team will not win 6 games this year. The coach, OC, QB, GM and owner of this team are complete losers!!

if changes arnt made after a performance like this then Steven Ross deserves everything he gets from ticket sales to interest in the team. Losing at home with two weeks to prepare and losing no less to a bills team that was so banged up. Shows you that you just cant lace them up and win. Horrid turnovers today by tannehill which led to 10 point. Seems like eons ago they started 3-0. Really had high hopes for them this season and higher hopes after a 3-0 start. How ireland gets an extension is beyond me. What has he done to warrant that

Can't blame Clabo….. Our GM obviously saw the talent in that acorn and felt Brandon Albert wasn't worthy enough for a trade.

- Oh yeah, over half our draft picks are inactive.
- This "game changing DE" that our GM traded up for? No impact at all this season.
- Reggie Bush is being properly utilized in a way our coaches seemed clueless to figure out. Meanwhile, we have two sub par running backs.
- Our secondary STILL can't cover tight ends

As long as Ireland is the Dolphins GM, expect this year in & out.

Against a practice squad qb a cb with a cast on. And cj and fred hurt. We still lost. I love this team but dam whats goin on here phins?????

terrible

THEY ARE A 500 TEAM AT BEST...BUT PHILBIN IS THE PROBLEM..BUT YOU GUYS LIKE HIM ..THE MEDIA AND THATS WHY YOU NEVER BASH HIM..2 WEEKS TO SHOW THIS..PHILBIN MUST GO..I'AM NOT INTO THE DOLPHINS THAT MUSCH..I GIVE UP STILL GONNA WATCH THEM..BUT NOT GONNA BE THE SAME..AS LONG AS LEBRONS EGO IS IN MIAMI..THE FINS WON'T GET OVER THE HUMP..ASK THE BROWNS..BUT PHILBIN MUST GO ..DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS TEAM..WATCH THEM FROM FAR AWAY..

IMAWriter - couldn't agree more. THill is just a more mobile version of Henne. No touch on long pass & seems to choke when the game is on the line. Unbelievable that we can't get 15 yds in a hurry up to get into FG range.

Never should have been dropping back to pass - put this loss on OL, HC/OC, & THenne. QBs need to make big plays he is just not making enough of them and turning it over too much. Oh well - another 8-8 season and mid-1st rd pick.

The Ireland experiment continues ... meanwhile NE continues to run away with the division

Get used to it, I am.

Ireland, Philbin, Sherman, Coyle, Ross, you stinking morons. Go away from this team. Youre a shame of this franchise. Youre lucky to have those fans at the stadium who decided to waste their money and time.
Not even a FG the 2nd half againt the Bills.
This team is not better than the Dolphins with Sparanus. It's revolting.

Unreal that we would lose like we did today, at home, after our bye, against a team playing their third string QB.

This is as bad as a loss can get and our offense cost is the game again. I'm pinning this on Sherman.

----
Did YOU not see a wide open Hartline and tanny misses him by 5 yards?

I am amazed anyone buys ticket or is willing to make fools of themselves by wearing the mark of losers that is dolphin gear.

Oh yeah..8-8 coming right at us

Philbin: same charisma, heart and huevos as a porcelain cat.
Sherman: the worst playcaller i've ever seen, even after Henning.
Clabo: just a fat a s s. Plug another fat a s s in there and you get the same result.
Wallace: laughing his way to the bank.
Coyle: 3rd and 9 and no blitz? Really?. Oliver Vernon over Jordan when Jordan at least shows up to play.
This is crazy. I don't think i'll whatch anymore

Does this loss say that the fins are the worst team in the AFC East? Buffalo and Thad Lewis just beat Miami at home and the Jets are giving the pats all they can handle. Could this be the AFC East standings at the end of the year:

New England
New York Jets
Buffalo
Miami

If that happens someone has to be held accountable. Perhaps the GM and the coach get fired. Wow here we go again, rebuilding time.

Tannehill needs to make that play and he doesn't. I have to say, I stay out of the Tannehill talk but he has accuracy issues especially with the deep ball.

Now I can forgetabout the Dolphins for another year. If we cant beat the Bills with a QB, who they picked up off the street and he is injured then thats it. All the crap we heard about them getting the pass protection sorted is bull. Tannehill has zero confidence in his o line that is clear to see. Maybe that explains the terrible pocket presence and ball skills. Philbin and Sherman are so wek offensively. Egnew should tell Sherman that if he was the GM he would fire his ass. I would love Ross to fire Philbin and Sherman now while we still have a shot at the playoffs. It will never happen off course, we will all have to ride out another season of Cam Cameron style BS atthe press conferences.

We suck,plain and simple.Game was in the bag.Bad teams find ways to lose games,and we are a bad team.Great decision to not shore up the o-line in 2 weeks.
