With the final pre-season game underway it is time to prepare for the regular season -- where it all counts - where it will start to fall apart for the Dolphins unless they acquire a QB -- Deshaun Watson wants to come to Miami. We will see what happens.

Tuesday is when final rosters are set along with practice squad. I Will post those details and any relevant news to this week's game on here as things develop. Feel free to post news relevant to this game here as well.

Mac Jones named Cheatriots starter. Cam Newton has been cut. Dolphins should go after him if not Watson. We should be getting a look at our final roster in moments.

Paolo just Wow! Sometimes your comments leave me speechless.

You do realize that Tua has a good chance to lead the Fins to a win in game 1. What will be your excuse to keep discrediting Tua then? He beat the Pats last year as a rookie and he has improved a lot since then.

Jesse Davis, Mack Hollins, Jason McCourty, Elandon Roberts, Clayton Fejedelem elected team captains.

Surprising not to see a guy like Baker on defense as captain or Howard, but his off-season diva antics probably hurt his chances.

Not surprising: Tua was not elected as a captain -- doesn't have what it takes to be a leader. And it probably says what a lot of people don't want to admit about Tua that his own teammates didn't elect the starting QB as one of the captains. It is good to see that some within the team are not willing to be fooled about him and realize he doesn't have what it takes on or off the field.

Or he's young and needs to earn his stripes....

It’s officially game day . The start of another season . Another season that will go to waste due to lack of quarterback play — unless the Dolphins take it upon themselves to find a real answer.

Will you be rooting for Tua or against him today? I am rooting for him. He will do his best to play well and give your favorite team a victory.

I root for a team as a whole, not individual players. Also, stop getting your panties in a bunch.

Dolphins win toss and elect to differ. The proceed to pay for it almost immediately as the Cheatriots are already moving the ball downfield with ease. The defense needs to keep us in the game to make up for the ineptitude on offense.

Fins score first working the running game. Waiting word on Davis.

Fins recover a fumble -- according to the initial ruling but it is likely to stand.

New England defense not fooled by Tua and his antics this drive.

Cheatriots march down the field again on the Dolphins defense but Fins are able to hold them to a FG also aided by a penalty.

That was a terrible throw by Tua there -- what a clown -- almost turning away from the throw as hes making it

Second consecutive empty possession after the score for the Fins.
