Can it really be time for the team's 2nd preseason game? Oh it is and that means we are just a few weeks away from the games that actually mean something.

So what will I be watching for tonight? Two main things jump out at me. First, I want to see some progress made by the first team offense. This means I'd like to see Ronnie actually have some holes to run through and I want to see Trent actually make some good, strong, accurate throws. On the defensive side of the ball, I'll be closely watching the secondary. Yet again, the fromt 7 is a shell of its self with Zach Thomas, Jason Taylor, and Keith Traylor all sitting out and with Joey Porter recovering from surgery. That means that for the second straight week, only 3 starters from the front 7 will be playing. So what I'll be watching closely is how the corners and safeties perform against an average at best group of receivers. And I'll also be curious to see how Rod Wright and Abe Wright fare as they gain some more experience.

And don't forget to get involved in the Marty Booker community projections.


**UPDATE**: 2 games. 2 John Beck 4th quarter comebacks. 2 one point wins as the Dolphins pull this one out 11-10. As always, some good stuff and some not so good stuff. Look for me to post some of my thoughts some time tomorrow.
