Live blog today during the VICTORY today
As you know Westhoff coached the Dolphins special teams for over a decade before being fired by Dave Wannstedt. Although I doubt this is happening, it might be nice if Wiedmeier asked Westhoff what his contract situation is next year and whether he'd be interested in returning to South Florida to improve a special teams unit that -- outside of Ted Ginn Jr. -- has been awful this season.
Anyway, as you know this is a BIG game today. It doesn't matter that both teams have bad records and are going absolutely nowhere in the postseason. It matters that one of these bad teams has an opportunity to win.
The spoils to the winner are obvious: A satisfying week enjoying a victory.
The loser? Well a highly placed Dolphins employee summed it up thusly: "If we lose, the entire country will be talking about us going winless and being the worst team of all time. If they lose, people will start talking about [Eric] Mangini's job security."
Such are the stakes today.
The inactives today for the Dolphins DO NOT include Lorenzo Booker. Maybe this is the game he gets a few series to show what he's got. Inactive today are Kerry Reed, Jereme Perry, Tuff Harris, Zach Thomas, Anthony Bryant, Anthony Alabi, Derrick Robinson and Rob Ninkovich.
Meet me in the comment section for the live blogging session. And yes, I did pick the Dolphins to win today in The Herald.
