Live blog of Dolphins vs. Raiders right here

They are giving away "Awwright Miami" t-shirts at the entrances of Sun Life Stadium today.

Yes, Jim Mandich will be inducted posthumously to the Honor Roll today. And the Dolphins will play the Raiders. And there will be a live blog on tap right here, starting in the comments section below. Meet me there at kickoff.

Before kickoff, I'd like to share with you my Sunday column. It gives you the backstory of Miami's chase of Carson Palmer this offseason and in July.

Why is that important considering he's playing for the Raiders?

It should give you an idea of what to expect in the coming QB search. Read it.

As for today: John Jerry starts at right guard for Miami, as I told you on Thursday.  The reason is Vernon Carey (ankle) is out. Steve Slaton, Ike Alama-Francis, Will Yeatman, Ryan Baker and Will Barker are the other inactives.
