Good to go for Week 2

Old jokes aside Jay Cutler is getting last laugh with Dolphins

Verrett had been placed on the Physically Unable to Play (PUP) list in July, but saw playing time for the Chargers in the preseason and Week 1. Philip Rivers is not the mobile type so if the Dolphins get a push up the middle they'll force early and possibly bad throws, and that exponentially increases the potential for an interception.

Davis finished with 11 total tackles in four preseason games with Los Angeles during an up-and-down four-game preseason.

-Dolphins LT Laremy Tunsil vs. Chargers DE Melvin Ingram. "You wait all year for the first game of the season".

However, as the Dolphins prepare for a Week 2 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers, the Miami coaching staff is confident the talented pass rusher can be an asset.

"I've been watching film the last couple of days, and we've had our first couple of meetings already", defensive end Ndamukong Suh said. The teams met last season, with the Dolphins coming out on top.

BIG PARTY: The Chargers are planning numerous festivities around their opener, including the presentation of LaDainian Tomlinson's ring from the Pro Football Hall of Fame at halftime.

Los Angeles played the Broncos to a 7-7 tie through the first 25 minutes Monday and let Denver score the next 17 points, but it rallied to pull within a field goal midway through the fourth quarter. He has firsthand experience doing that in his former job of head of fan engagement for the Seahawks, home of the "12th Man" and one of the most festive stadium experiences in the NFL. And to the best of my knowledge never disappeared prior to a game.

According to oddsmakers at, San Diego is the favorite at home in this game, as the Chargers are getting odds of -3.5 points against the Dolphins. "Some of those guys were surprised how much".

"It was exciting. The fields were outstanding". If the Dolphins can't protect Jay Cutler, it will be a long day for their offense.

The Dolphins' support staff then made sure Gase, his coaches and players had everything they needed throughout the week.

I can see some fireworks on Sunday in this one.
