MIAMI – The game has been suspended due to lightning.
This also happened in Denver, so the Raiders might be used to this.
No word in the press box as to when the delay might be over. The delay lasted about 25 minutes in Denver.
Regardless, I think Daunte Culpepper is into this game already.
He led the Raiders out of the tunnel with his right arm extended and pointing toward the sky. His enthusiasm about today’s game is obvious, much more than he wanted to let on in the days before his return to Dolphin Stadium.
Some folks in this part of the country believe Culpepper not starting until today is an indication the Dolphins made the right move in letting him go.
The rationale? If Culpepper can’t beat out Josh McCown, why would the Dolphins want him?
I’m sure Culpepper knows that.
*Joey Porter’s guarantee of a victory today is a big deal in South Florida, but not so much for the Raiders.
Is Porter supposed to say the Dolphins will lose?
Dol-fans (as they call themselves) aren’t into Porter’s guarantee either. They want to know when the outspoken linebacker is going to impact a game.
Today’s inactives in warm and rainy Miami are:
QB Josh McCown
CB John Bowie
FB Oren O’Neal
LB Isaiah Ekejiuba
LB Robert Thomas
DE Derrick Burgess
T Mario Henderson
QB JaMarcus Russell (3rd QB)
