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.

I guarantee Lewis outplays Tannehill today.

same old thing the OL with the great picks of Jeff Ireland are magnificent...He could have taken lane Johnson this year with the trade up....year before Reiff Riley who he said was not a starting LT but is a solid performer at LT for the Lions. He passed on Riley that year with the 14th pick.

He traded up to pick a DE to go after Brady and the guy cannot even go after the Jacksonville QB.

As I recall, Brady and Romo got picked last week. Happens.

Nice start, pick six. Are you kidding me? Tannehill looks like a zombie in the pocket.

Hire Jimbo Fisher and draft Winston

The QB has no time to throw and the running game is a disaster...Olivier Vernon is far more of a player than the # 3 pick overall they traded up for this year.

The worst offense in the league....awful

When a kicker drafted in the late round is your best rookie, you know your GM cannot spot talent.

Well fellas Home is correct Tannehill sucks.

Third and fifteen and we give up a first down ... saw that one coming a mile away!

Why do the Phins get 2 weeks in a row for their bye eh?

3rd and forever, you are guaranteed a FIRST DOWN AGAINST THIS PATHETIC DEFENSE!!!

Third and 17,simple screen,first down...are you kidding?

For fucks sake. 3 and 15 really?

Tannenhill is not an every down throwing QB and few are except Brady, Manning, etc. Hell even the Patriots had to go get RB help as even Brady could not throw every down...the OL of Miami is the worst in the NFL.

Nobody reading the screen, no tackling. The guy got hurt. We're lucky.

It's another Bills 1st down! Suck my big fat meat!

So tired of watching teams pick up third and long on us

Have we stopped anyone on 3rd and 15+ this year? It's like we go to prevent D and just let backs go for 20+ yards. Fire this coaching staff already

Ireland should join the ACA team for how do screw up a registration page.

Tannehill can't run for a 2 yard first down and the defense can't stop a 3rd down and 15. Enough said! This team is in trouble.

I love this blog more than I love the team.

Second possession, three and out. I want to beat the sh*t out of Ireland

Kevin couple u blow

Hey Jets nation is making a trip later in the year. Can't wait to drink your beer, beat your sorry team, pi&$ in your ocean and fu&k your women.

Coyle

WOW, A STOP!!!

Terrible special teams play

The reality is Miami may have the fifth best QB in the division. Yes, 5th.

Ryan Tannehill throws the pick 6 as well as anyone!

Sadly, Earl, the Bills stopped themselves.

T3@out eh?

Hate to sound negative,But what exactly did this team do for 2 weeks?

Ryan Tannehill = Another Irescum bust

Statler,

Here are some of the good later picks by Ireland:

Reshad Jones (pro bowl caliber 5th round)
Brian Hartline (pro bowl last year 4th round)
Charles Clay (headed to 1000 receiving 6th round)
Carrol and Clemmons (solid 5th round starters)
Misi (good LB 2nd round)
Vernon (leads team in sacks)
Martin 2nd round, and Miller 4th round are starting.

Sixth if Sanchez weren't hurt. Yes, 6th.

It's a shame. Jeno smith as a rookie getting better and better. And everyone thought he was going to be a bust! I will give up have of my draft next year to hire Rex Ryan. He knows football. Good a s s coach. I hate the jets but everyone here thought the jets were going to suck the pats are going to suck and those coaches proving everyone wrong!


What are you talking about?
Ireland has hit on all his first round picks, and found many gems?
Just because a player has a role on a mediocre team doesn't make it a good pick.

I don't feel like researching at the moment, but Odrick isn't very good. And personally I don't consider Pouncey a great pick yet...He was one of the highest drafted Centers I can ever recall. If you pick a Center that high he better be All-Pro, not just very good.

I could be wrong here, but isn't Jake Long still the ONLY player he's drafted that has made the Pro-Bowl?
One player, with a designation about 100 players in each conference get once people back-out. And it took the #1 overall pick to do it.

I'm not giving up on this team, but there is no possible measurable or objective analysis that can show Jeff Ireland has been good at his job.

TanneBust leads the NFL in 3 n outs for 2 staight years!!

Well, I tell you what they didn't do for two weeks: practice.

Tannehill has only completed 1 pass, to the bills for a TD

, the Phins are a bad football team folks Eh?

There is no chance Buff is going to beat us. They are going backwards instead of forward. But, please, score some points.

Martin 2nd round, and Miller 4th round are starting.

Those 2 are terrible. And starting on a bad team is meaningless. See Chad Henne 3 year starter.

Pick was on Jonathan Martin who was pushed back yet again into RT's face. Martin is useless.

is it me or is this team getting worse with each passing week????WTF?

This is a disgrace,are you kidding?

What are Tanny's stats so far? Passer rating?

Teams know they simply need to put pressure on Tannehill to end the drive.

Hating Sherman more and more every day.

i usually try to stay positive but the line is pure garbage..

Jones ... you're a DINK!!!!!!!

Another bad special teams play.

Dolphins can't do anything right today.

3 3 and outs and a pick six

The 1-15 was more fun to watch, at least there was that potential of going 0-16 and being memorable. These guys are just plain DULL. Oh, and stupid. Why touch that kick AT ALL.

Let's blame Henne, eh?

Boy, can those guys punt that ball! Boring Game.

This team is SOOOO BADDD

Yes ETF Henne was at fault for that one..
