Live blog: OL in shambles, Patterson active

The Dolphins offensive line -- the source of off and onfield issues this season -- is the focus again today.

The Dolphins staring offensive line versus the San Diego Chargers will be: LT Bryant McKinnei, LG Sam Brenner, C Nate Garner, RG John Jerry, and RT Tyson Clabo.

Garner, who played left guard the previous two games, moves over to center because Mike Pouncey is out. Brenner was added off the practice squad Saturday. He was an undrafted free agent who was with the team since training camp.

The amazing things?

Danny Watkins, a former first-round draft pick acquired nearly two months ago, is active but obviously not better (in the coaching staff's opinion) to start ahead of the rookie.

And Dallas Thomas, who was worked both tackle and guard since the start of the season, is active but also not considered better (in the coaching staff's eyes) to start ahead of the undrafted rookie. By the way, Thomas was a third-round draft pick.

The good news?

Cornerback Dimitri Patterson is active today but he is not starting.

There's a live blog today. It happens below:

Man the fins are going to kill me!

right in front of Carroll.

why not bring da house

Time to get ready to kill another television, compliments of the Dolphins!

Yes, they will attack carroll

Tick-tick tick-tick tick-tick

One. More. Sack.

No timeouts for them , pal.

Last play lost... How much more torture can we endure with this regime?

Good timeout ... our D needs a breather.

Are the two rookies that bad? How can they not start over Carroll?

bring da house sack game is over or it forces him to throw quick short route and clock goes

Our rookies db's...,apparently another pair of mistakes by Ireland.

Great call for a time out.

will the fins cave in in 7 seconds?

Philbin's open jaw is quite attractive.

one play to the endzone.

Here it goes:

lol philbin looks lost

Should they rush 3 and keep a bunch of DBs back. They have to throw it to the endzone.

Does Coyle have Wake on the4 sideline again? Like the TB game?

3 ON CARROLL

One Wake sack and this one is over!

Another great call for a time out.

Yes, we win!!!!! Big win!!

HUGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

WIN!!!!

Chargers Doomed LOL

WAKE AND GRIMES....OUR HEROS!

5-5 AND THE FINS LIVE FOR ANOTHER WEEK OF MEDIA DRAMA

MANDO WILL BE CALLING FOR REGIME CHANGE IN ABOUT 5 MINUTES...HE JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF THE DRAMA!!!

Grimes!!

Told you all Chargers cannot win in Miami

I KNEW WE WOULD DO IT!!!!!!!

Well how about that. Tough gritty win.

Yeah

Well... Unlike most of you, I never lost faith!
G'nite y'all;-)

I hope Tannehill doesn't get killed by Carolina next week.

We still have a season!!!

Jets lost too!!!

Baltimore lost!!

dusty,

I always saw you as a true dolphins fan. Why would you root against your team? You should be happy they are now the 6th seed in the playoffs.

Glad this defense finally showed up! Welcome back guys!

Fins win, Jets destroyed how sweet it is!

One hell of an enjoyable Game to watch. Thanks to both Teams.

We need another QB. Yeah thats what it is.

Wildcard hunt with 2 against the Jets

Sam Brenner bullied into playing better than RI.

That win is for all you BIATCH PUUSE TROLLS who pollute this blog. UP YOURS DOCHEBAGS...

HEY MANDO THOSE PLAYERS ARE JUST NOT PLAYING HARD FOR PHILBIN AT ALL...BETTER GET YOUR BIBLE THUMPING DUNGY IN HERE TO SAVE THE WORLD.

Well what say you naysayers now? Let's tank the season. You guys just never listen and never give our guys the benefit of the doubt. That's why they play em on the field.

Jets have to be the strangest team. They beat NO, lose to the Bills.
Is Patterson hurt again?

Orlando, that's dusty's mo. He's had that strategy for years. Lose, get better draft position, improve team that way. Or lose to fire the problem (GM and coaches).

It's just dusty's way.

He must be IMA,I didn't see him in the 4th quarter.

I expected the Fins to beat the Bucs and lose to the Chargers.

Anything can happen I guess.

Could this game turn the season around?

I guess we'll see.

Cadillac Deville F U DOUCHE

Wow. We're still in the mix!

BRENNAR AND GARNER...THANK GOODNESS FOR YOU BOTH

Get Sense F U DOUCHE

Oline did a real nice job today. Take that haters.

Interesting how 4 sacks in this game are so different than the 4 sacks in the Pats game. It's WHEN they happen in the context of things. At least 2 of those sacks were on Tanny.
He needs to step up or OUT.
No turnovers as a result of the sacks, so at least that.
Our guys played HARD.

A reality. We are right in the thick of the playoff hunt. Where are all the guys saying we have no talent? They sure look like dopes now. You guys just obsess over firing guys and cleaning house. Like I said you only cut off the dead limbs this team is not that far away.

I'm very happy with the way Sam Brenner played, but what does this say for Dallas Thomas?
