In-game tweeting during Dolphins-Saints tonight

The Miami Dolphins play the New Orleans Saints in the 2009 preseason finale tonight, and the importance of the game for players on the roster bubble cannot be understated.

A few guys I'm keeping an eye on:
  • Chad Henne - He's safe from the Turk, I want to see how Henne responds from last week's rough performance.
  • Lex Hilliard - The early preseason star has faded of late and will need a big showing to convince the team he's worth keeping around.
  • Brandon London - London still isn't showing much as a receiver, which makes his performance on special teams extremely important. He needs to be indispensable there to secure a spot.
  • Quentin Moses and Erik Walden - These two could be competing for one roster spot, even if Matt Roth goes on the PUP list. Both have some talent and potential and will have one last chance to stand out.
As always, I'll be tweeting my in-game observations during the Miami Dolphins-New Orleans Saints preseason finale tonight. Follow me at http://www.twitter.com/phinsspotlight and feel free to comment on my tweets and send me your own observations or questions.
