The reasons now is not the time to decide on Cameron
I am not sitting on the fence here, because, among other things that is uncomfortable, it makes my underwear bunch up and it simply goes against my nature. But that was the accusation by some readers when they read my column on the subject on The Herald website today. Here is the column: http://www.miamiherald.com/1190/story/329550.html
The point of my column is too much can happen between now and the final day of the season for anyone to have an informed opinion now.
Here's a test for folks that believe Cameron should get fired: Will you think that way if Miami wins the next four games? Will you think that way if John Beck, under Cameron's tutelage, suddenly begins to play great and upsets the Patriots?
If your answer is yes then you are a fool.
Similarly, here's a test for folks that believe Cameron should absolutely get a second season: Will you think that way if the Dolphins become infamous by losing all 16 of their games this year? Will you think that if the hints of dissension currently peeking through become pronounced and obvious and turn the Dolphins into a dysfunctional team? Will you think that if Bill Cowher or Bill Parcells or somebody of that reputation calls wanting Cameron's job?
If your answer is yes, you too, are a fool.
The point is we don't know what is going to happen. We don't know what the final month of the season will bring. So you guys cannot know if firing Cameron or keeping Cameron is the right move.
It's not fence-sitting. It's simply smart.
