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:

The special teams haven't been showing up for weeks now, they are yet another unit Philbin has performing poorly.

Are we leaving the running game now. WTF. Philbin has 2nd and 6 run that run man you are getting yards. Thill and that line will get us killed trying to hold of the Chargers rush. Stay on the ground for once.

Thill saw the safety bltizing and still didnt audible or shift the line or tell the back to pik up that safety blitz. Starting to wonder about this kid

pathetic penalty.

Surprised there's so many fans watching a "pro" game today.

Seriously not rush at all. Reshad jones cant' cover Gates...he is piss poor this year.

Yes refs get it right against us for once.

If I were hc I would bench Reshad Jones until he got his head out of his rear.

dion Jordan time.

I hope that they can hold them to a FG. They cannot have Reshad Jones covering Gates.

Nice adjusting during the game to not give up the same place twice

DEFENSE Is really bad

Wow. Where is our great line. Jones really has sucked bad this year.

Not his fault jpao, he's not being used to his strengths by the DC. Another reason to dump these yahoo coaches.

One thing is for certain. Kevin Cole has ruined Mike Nolan's defense.

Vaunted run defense? What have you been smoking Jerkdorf?

R Jones was given that big pay day after only one good year. He has to improve his overall play this year.

Coyle

Ireland of the Dolphins passes 2 years ago of Riley Refiff the OT from Iowa says he cannot play LT in the NFL--he is doing a fine job at LT in Detroit.

Trade up ( #3 pick overall) to take a DE who hardly plays and passes up Lane Johnson a LT who is doing a fine job at Philadelphia.

If he would have stayed put in this years draft he could have had DJ Fluker who he said could not play LT in the NFL and is a starter at LT for the Chargers.

Is this a General Manager????????????????

What has happened to the Dolphins run defense? This has to be on the coaches. It is like these guys forgot to play the run.

Heat World Champs, a lot more people care about the Dolphins then you douche. Go swallow Troll.

Hey Ryan, when they blitz THROW IT, don't DUCK.

Dusty, serious, I'm sitting here. There is just as many if not more people then the Cincy game.

Our D is 21st in the league and has sucked all year.

DC....wait a minute....I agree they are using him properly. BUT Jones needs to guard TE better than that.

That's what you're going to do for the rest of your miserable life...Jer* off and watch TV. At least you're honest enough to admit it. Jer* off and Play station. Nice.

Rookie HC is making Coyles look foolish in this game.

Pass to TE for sure

He's still a very good TE, I can't really fault Jones for that.

Is our offence the worst in the NFL?

Again TE is WIDE OPEN

Rivers should have kept it.

Rivers heard Jordan's footsteps.

Hold.

Steve, no, our coaching staff is.

Thats over, please !!!

Refs are horrible, that's clear as day. Why review?

Hahahahahahhahah.
You can't get to me bro.

WOW....nobody blocked Clemons at all.

deity do u find it hard to hide the fact that your gay

Great, halftime. So the coaches can make zero adjustments and bring the team out flat in the 3rd quarter. Heckuva job Brownie!

here comes a run and sd timeout

Hey folks. Just like my Canes, Fins can't stop the run at times. Is it our D Line, LB's, or both?

Fellas, why do you even entertain the troll. That's what she comes here to do, get under your skin. Ignore her and she'll go away.

Formula:

McCoy = Philbin with hair.

Rivers > Tannehill

IMA, it's our DC.

well 10-10 at half, win for chargers, they get ball first coming out one of these horrible teams has to win

yes ima the canes depressed me. that d is probaly the worst in ncaa

Awful offensive play calling again. Whats the point ?

Dump off to Thomas.

All you haters are anti Semitic.

Ireland of the Dolphins passes 2 years ago of Riley Refiff the OT from Iowa says he cannot play LT in the NFL--he is doing a fine job at LT in Detroit.

Trade up ( #3 pick overall) to take a DE who hardly plays and passes up Lane Johnson a LT who is doing a fine job at Philadelphia.

If he would have stayed put in this years draft he could have had DJ Fluker who he said could not play LT in the NFL and is a starter at LT for the Chargers.

Sure don't dusty. Do you find it hard to hide the fact that your Armando.

We are lucky to have 10-10. To be honest. Thill very hot and cold. Run the ball in the second half for goodness sake.

The line is finding a way to get it doen. Thams running hard and Miller looks ok.

Philbin can turn this around on the ground. If they go back to that Shotgun I formation we care screwed. Those mis-direction runs to Thigpen were great, as were the Thill rollouts.

Wallace may get that big one today. Why not try now.

The Chargers D is starting to dare us to run.

Ross is a cheap SOB. Thats PART of the reason we stink!

IMAWriter,

The DLine was fine last year and the year before. However, this year Coyle changed the system and it seems they can't do anything inside. Our LB's are horrible, can fill gap, can't cover and when Misi is not in the game, Trusnik is awful! Btw, did I mention neither Vernon nor Jordan can set the edge?

No he won't. We slam all ARMANDO SALGUERO loving dolphin haters. Maybe if you dumb shyts were slightly reasonable I wouldn't have to body check you pssy arses. Plus your from NoVA...and NoVA is a cespool full of douchebags. Trust me, I know.

See @ 534. You sound just like that idiot. Just completely ignorant.

Can we please put moore in. Tannahill is late on every throw. He has missed wallace 2 weeks in a row with shitty passes

The Dolphins have done well on that O-line. With all the starters out, we finally discover that they are pretty average when out there for us.

Garner has been great at center. Im fine with him on the line next year at LG.

Carol City, why are you back in the draft?? We took offensive linemen 4 or 5 years in a row. Miami would have been burned down if we took an OL first. Hindsight is great but is worthless.

Wheeler can't cover. Doesn't deserve the dreads.
The same lack of leader on offense seems to be the case on defense.
Not sure it's entirely Coyle's fault, but agree there's a problem on the inside. Fins used to crush teams on 1st down, and somewhat on 3rd. Now, a 3rd and 18 is a gift to our opponent. Eerily similar to the Canes. Must be the tequila down there.
