You think the record is bad? Read this ...

This has not been a good week for Cam Cameron.

First his team quit on Sunday. Then, after the game in which they quit, the players admitted there is a divide between some players and coaches and even some players and other players. Dissension is the word used by some.

Then we find out Cameron, though not a liar, is definitely taking liberties with the truth on how he dances around questions.

The first issue in which Cameron's credibility is now at stake is that of offensive playcalling. The subject of whether Trent Green was calling plays came up after the game Sunday and again Monday. Both days, Cameron said Green wasn't calling the plays and suggested nothing had changed in how the Dolphins offense does business.

"Yeah, he just relays the call to the quarterback," Cameron said. "That's the only difference.''

Except that is not true. Turns out, according to several players, Mike Mularkey called the offensive plays against the Jets Sunday. It was the first game Mularkey did it and not Cameron. I would say that is quite a difference.

This revelation brings up a couple of issues. Now we have Cameron giving up his play-calling to the guy who called the plays last year and that effectively defeats the purpose of owner Wayne Huizenga going out last spring and searching far and wide for an offensive mind to lead his team.

It also asks Mularkey, a former Steelers offensive coordinator, to call plays in an offense in which he was not reared and does not feel most comfortable with. Last year Mularkey had to call plays in the offense Scott Linehan installed and last Sunday he's calling plays in the offense Cameron brought from San Diego.

But aside from that, it torques me that the coach was thinking he was smarter than everyone by not answering questions in a straightforward fashion. I mean come on. I have a huge pimple on my nose and you ask me if I have a pimple on my cheek and I say, "No, my skin hasn't changed," and I'm not stretchg the truth?

A similar exchange happened between myself and Cameron again Wednesday. Cameron was talking about putting linebacker Zach Thomas on injured reserve and I asked the question all of you want answered:

"Cam," I asked, "Do you want Zach Thomas on the team next year?

Cameron's answer: “Zach Thomas, you can’t imagine what it’s like having your defense lose, not only it’s Mike linebacker, but it being Zach Thomas. That’s something we’ve had to deal with all year long. I have so much respect for him. In my view, he’s our Mike linebacker. Now Channing (Crowder) has done an outstanding job of filling in for him and is one heck of a Mike linebacker, too. But as I said, you don’t replace Zach Thomas. You don’t. You try to do it collectively, but I think we all have so much respect for the guy.”

So with all due respect, I asked him if that simply meant YES or NO?

“He and I have talked that that’s where everyone is going to go, and he and I have agreed. The bottom line is he’s going to do everything to help us this year, and we’re going to let some time go by. He’s under contract next year. He knows how I feel about him. We’re not going to get into the speculation on next year. We’re going to focus on this year, and I think that’s fair.”

In other words, I am up here on this podium doing the Soulja boy dance around these questions but you're not going to get a straight answer and maybe not even the truth.

Nice job. Last time a Dolphins coach took liberties like this was last December. His name is Nick Saban.

What's more shocking?...the guy whom last year couldn't call a right play at the right time at all now calling plays; OR, the new guy who has trouble with the right calls, giving ownership over the play calls to the guy whom last year couldn't call the right plays at all? And can somebody please pass me a big brown paper bag too...thanks.

Is there any hope that Wayne will make a change, or will we be stuck with Cam for years, just like wanny. It's was obvious he's in over his head and the damage he's doing could cost the team years to overcome, just like wanny.

Armando,

You said,

"Now we have Cameron giving up his play-calling to the guy who called the plays last year and that effectively defeats the purpose of owner Wayne Huizenga going out last spring and searching far and wide for an offensive mind to lead his team."

The preceding statement is quite possibly the most inane I've ever read in this blog. And that's saying something.

Mularkey calling/relaying plays to Green does NOT mean Cameron was not involved. I'm sure he was: both during the week with regard to strategy and on Sunday via the headsets.

Your statement seems to imply that the Dolphins/Wayne are not receiving any benefit of Cam's offensive knowledge unless HE is relaying the plays into Beck.

Following that "logic", and I use that term loosely, any offensive minded NFL headcoach, who chooses not to relay the plays to the QB, is effectively defeating the purpose of the owner hiring that headcoach(to use your words).

I could not disagree more.

I think what we have here in this article is a sports' writer who is upset because Cam would DARE to not let you in on every detail.

Both Your arrogance and narcissism are thick enough to cut with a knife.

Thank you for providing a forum for me to express my opinion.

As a coach you have to dance around the media's questions. Especially when you're enacting a long-term plan that in the short-term will be painful to the fans.
Would I care if the Dolphins got rid of Zach Thomas? Not if they got the right price. Be honest with yourselves, at least try, and tell me that he hasn't lost a step. The Dolphins aren't contenders this year and they won't be next year. I'd rather see him go somewhere else and contend than stay and waste away here.
The same goes for Jason Taylor except he's still good. How many good years does he have left? We don't know.

I was all for Cam from the beginning since he was a play calling genius. He then turned into run ricky 3 times in a row Pornostache. We we all should face the fact it is over. Once you lose a team you do not get it back. This team is lost. Not all of it is Cams fault but playcalling can be blamed on him and he sucks. He has to go bye bye at the end of the year. Spend some bucks and get the Patriots Offensive or Defensive coordinator to act as our new head coach. Fire overated Randy too, sick of his face. Its about time we finally spend money and take something from the Patriots for a change.

Ease off on your reaction to Cam's Zach Thomas answer.

Even if he does not want Zach back next year he can't say so right now. That would be like JJ saying he didn't want Marino.

It is fair enough for a coach to talk like a politician regarding the future.

BTW, don't you think Zach, with his fanatical study habits, would make a great LB coach for the Dolphins?

I'm with you on lie about Mularky calling plays being weak.

LIke ANY Business its in the Dolphins best interest to see the people they put into place succeed.

It clearly looks like the internal audit revealed to Wayne (&/or the Powers that be) what we already know. The ROOKIE Head Coach was/is a bit overwhelmed.

Cam no longer calling the plays seems like an obvious attempt to lighten Cam's workload in a hope that he will perform better unencumbered from those additional responsibilites.

Armondo, most of the time I DO like your points, but some of this is annoying. If you're going to claim dissension on the team, just man up and say who it is, please? Or if someone said that Mularkey is making the calls, again...who is it? Generalizations like "the players" or "some players" sounds an awfully lot like Inside Edition. Sure would be nice to have specifics on this rather than "someone said this"...

Regarding play calling, WHY did it change, or was that question asked of a player? Since I don't have front-office access, it would be interesting (to me) to know if that decision was made by Cam, by Wayne, or jointly decided by the coaching staff. Did any of the players on the offense have a role in this decision?

Regarding Cam's "shuck and jive" around answering both your question on the play calling, it sounds like you are frustrated that you aren't a "real" insider - but, wait, you don't WORK for the team, right? So, they don't tell you EVERYTHING? Go figure...

Sorry, but you would not be happy no matter how he answered. Does he even know the answer at this point? 1.Can Zack even come back with is health issues? 2. Have they already evaluated all the positions for next year? No.. This is silly.. If he says yes he will be back 100% and he does not come back for any reason. You call him a lier or naive. If he says no. You call him stupid for saying that in the middle of a season or stupid for letting a great player go. I understand why everyone is upset and looking for answers but sometimes. I am too.. But seems like some of our questions and comments are now getting somewhat ridiculous...ahhhhh

Cam Cameron is turning the playcalling over to Mike Muarkey?? WTF!!!!! Seriously....Mike Mularkey sucks!!!! He has no business doing the play calling. If Cam Cameron knew how overwhelming it would be he should have hired an Offensive Coordinator and not try to be the Head Coach and the Offensive Coordinator. I must admit I was all for Cam Cameron in the beginning but now I think he must go. Blame Jimmy Johnson, Dave Wannstedt, Nick Saban, or anybody you want. We can sit here and play the blame game all we want to but the fact of the matter is is that the Miami Dolphins are 0-12 and Cam Cameron will more than likely get the blame since he is the Head Coach.

Hey, can anybody guess where the Offensive Coordinator who's now on the Dallas Cowboys came from? Jason Garrett! Thats right folks, he was the Dolphins QB coach 2 years ago...he wanted to be the offensive coordinator here but we didn't give him the spot in order to have Mularkey as our O-Cordinator last year and now the moron is back only to subject us to more of the same play calling we saw against the Jets.

I am not a Cameron fan at this time but I sure liked him at the beginning of the season. If you had asked me after week 8 I would have said he is a good guy but I don't know if he will be there next year. Right now I think the ship is to far gone to save. It is too bad that Saban couldn't have endured this mess and then bring in another coach.
So what do you want him to say? He could say he doesn't know and then you would be all over that or he could say yes he is our middle linebacker and you would be all over that. He could say we are going to release him and you would have something to say to crap on that idea. Face it, he can't win on the field and certainly isn't going to win spouting off absolutes to a writer about an aging veteran with concussion problems. Lay off the guy and just get him fired. Bring in the next braniac with a plan and lets see where that gets the team.
Is it time to move on for Zack? That is going to be up to Zack.
Sounded like Zack's days as a Dolphin are numbered.

Armando, reading your comments and listening to you on the radio, it is clear that you have an agenda and it is personal between you and Cameron. You've lost your objectivity. Stop all the whinning. The one person who seems to have teflon around him is Wayne H. He hired Jimmy, Dave, Nick and now Cam. He hired the front office personel. He ruined the Marlins and the Panthers and now he's doing it to the Dolphins. He says "I turn this over to the professionals". Look around the league and show me a team that is winning without an actively involved owner. Tough to find. Who is a worst owner in all of sports other than Wayne. But it seems everyone, including you, are afraid to say it so you attack his hire, Cam, who by all accounts seems like a very decent guy. He's got no talent around him. To quote a former offensive coordinator of the Fins, "they expect me to make chicken salad out of chicken s***

The over under on this team was 7 wins and most people bet the under. Now take away your running back, quaterback, middle linebacker, defensive lineman and basically your entire secondary. So if under 7 was the bet with all of these guys, what is it without. Maybe we are just playing to our abilities vis a vis the rest of the league given the talent on the field.

But Armando you need to start to act like a professional rather than a whinner that you are coming off as in your columns and on the radio.

Armando, I would say that it is unfair to compare what Cam is doing "relative to" what Saban did (sorry, I couldn't resist). The degree of b.s. is not even close.

Remember, all coaches lie. Don;t get mad, OK?

1) While I am quite surprised that Cam would permit Mularkey, of ALL people, to call plays but perhaps felt Cam would change things up to see if Mularkey would make a difference. That Mularkey wasn't "raised" in Cam's system shouldn't be a concern. Rather, Mularkey's lack of feel for in-game ebbs and flows is his weakness.

2) On Zach, just remember that Cam doesn't have power of personnel...Mueller does. As a coach, Cam is going to look at things differently than a GM will, but he must be as diplomatic as he can so as not to alienate Zach or step on Mueller's authority. It isn't personal, so try not to be too "torqued".

It seem absurd to me that people hate Nick Saban for his lies but give Cameron a pass for his.

Part of a coach's job -- especially when he's 0-12 -- is to keep a good relationship with the media because they can bring him down. What, Cameron didn't think you guys would ask players about the play-calling? Pretty stupid.

And guiseppe, what does it matter the names of the players? They are obviously talking and obviously throwing Cameron under the bus. That's enough for me to think this ship she be sinkin'.

Mr. Huizenga either needs to totally change his ownership philosophy and become actively involed with the team and take responsiblity or else sell the team after this season to an ownership who WILL be actively involved with the team and responsible for choices. A good start would be to officially hire back Jimmy Johnson as a talent evaluator for each upcoming NFL draft and for all free agency signings and to hire Bill Cowher as Head Coach ( a proven successful NFL head coach) and Bill Parcells as General Manager ( a proven winner).

Here's what my gut is telling me... Someone at the top has put down an edict. Clearly the in-game decision making has been duly noted and Mr. Cameron's future has been placed under a "win-or-else" status. The embarrassing thought of going 0-16 has finally registered with Mr. Huizinga. If Cameron cannot figure out a way to win one game he will be fired.

This edict was probably stated during the week of the bye. At that time Cameron thought surely the team would win, but now with 4 games left the pressure is mounting. His comments and actions reek of a guy sitting on the edge of the pan inches from falling into the fire.

Wayne is a proud man and has people like Don Shula and Dan Marino, not to mention his friends among the league ownership, whispering in his ear. What do you think Shula is saying right now? These are proud, very wealthy men. Losing is not in their nature and being a laughingstock is surely sticking in their crawl like everglade's muck.

I don't care who the coach is or who the players are, this is the NFL and the disparity in talent is not that great. There are a few superstars but far and away there is parity among most of the rest of the players. It comes down to a simple matter, HEART, WILL TO WIN, MOTIVATION, WANT TO... A good coach will take any group of players and bring out the best in them. He may not win a lot of games because he truly lacks talent, but he will win some and his players and assistants will admire and respect him. Does anyone see that here? Admiration, respect? Anyone see it?

I was on the side of continuity in the coaching staff, but I can no longer toe that line. Malarky? Are you freaking kidding me? Grooming Trent Green to be a coach while your team is in the throes of the worst season in NFL history?

If this was my team I would fire Cameron today. TODAY, not at the end of the season. As a Dolphin fan my entire life I can tell you this, we do not accept being the laughingstock of the league. We do not accept being considered worst team EVER TO STEP ON AN NFL FIELD.

If Cameron cannot not use these thoughts alone to motivate his team then this guy is no headcoach and he never, ever will be.

I think it is pretty obvious by now that cam is not cut out to be a head coach. He just does not seem to be handling many situations well at all. Whats even more puzzling is that he is giving up the one duty is actually well respected for, play calling. I think he did well with the draft, and does call a good game. He has inherited a team that wasn't gonna be good anyway, but he is starting to lose credibility now with his team and fans, and that could lead to his demise.

First, Wes Welker is not re-signed -- now he is an All -Pro and recognized as one of the best in football. Then, Sammy Morris, who turns in 100 yard days like nada before getting injured. And we have Kevin Carter unsigned, who goes to Tampa for nada and help makes that defense one of the top five -- as he did in Miami. And you jettison Donnie Jones, who then leads the league in punting. There is also McMike, Bowens, and the really tragic -- and deceittful -- handling of Daunte, on and on and on.

The Dolphins had good talent, enough to be at least a playoff team this year, but Mueller and Cam savaged it and turned this team into the laughingstock in the league. Arrogant Cam was so arrogant he thought he could be a contender with rookies and lesser talent and his washed up, scrambled head for a QB Trent Green. Moreover, Cam has been low class with his player dealings, has failed to inspire and energize players (as Don Shula noted recently), and is a poor decision maker in game situations.

The result, 0-12 and counting...

You know, as I pointed out earlier, I'm not for getting rid of Zach OR JT. I wasn't for getting rid of McMichael or Chambers either. It's NOT just emotional. Even Madden takes into account team morale when you start cutting/trading off your vets. Chambers, not only #4 on the all-time Dolphin's receiver's list, was Ted Ginn's MENTOR! Now, the vets we have on offense are Trent Green and Marty "can't catch a cold" Booker! That's it. Those are the vets that the rookies on this team's offense have to look up to! If you release our 2 DEFENSIVE captains, who does that leave? Holliday? Traylor? Who even after being suckered into a 2 year deal, I doubt will return, and Porter, who I think could handle being a leader, he did it in Pittsburg, but have a combined 5-6 years on this franchise? You guys preach stability at the coaching positions, but seem to overlook the fact that PLAYER stability also comes into play.

Hey Armando,

On the other hand, perhaps we could try a little in-depth analysis on the subject of football. Perhaps a discussion of Buffalo's strengths and weaknesses. What will be a likely game plan for the Dolphins? Was L. Booker's performance last week a one-day wonder, or something we could use to exploit the Buffalo defense.

I see the Dolphins safeties and linebackers have lots of tackles, but too many seem to be over 5 yards downfield. Where is the problem here? Thanks in advance for your "in-depth" analysis.

Your at it again. Your "bash them at every chance" attitude is rearing its ugly head again. Objectivity is out the window with you. Hell..even proper analysis is not in your forte. It's just conjecture and trying to create controversy because you were told an indirect truth to the answer that Trent Green was not calling plays. You didn't ask if someone else was and now your taking it out on him for not telling you. How? By insinuating he is a shifty, liar, unable to give you the answer you want (Websters definition for the word "Sabanesque.")
If you read his answer about Zach, its clear that he's saying, "I love Zach, if I could keep him I would, and I'll say anything I can to keep him,but the final call will be from someone else." Meaning there is some other things to consider (maybe the salary cap next year, who knows.)
But I have more bones to pick with you. Dolphin dissension????? Where?? What is the defining comment that the players are against their coach??? Don't name names, but put the comments out there. And it better not be what's been printed over the last few days. None of that is dissension leaning. It's all facts about the state of that individual player. Dissension/Mutiny is more than those comments. Much more.

Now on to Mularkey. Cameron's assigning responsibility for the offense to someone else does not defeat any purpose. He was hired as head coach, so that he could drive and guide the offensive direction of this team. A different perspective than that of a defensive minded coach. So it doesn't matter if Cam calls the plays or not as long as he has control over the type of offense that is being run from those plays. Whether the result is good or not is about execution. His guidance, influence, direction is the leadership that a coach brings. That's part of what leadership is, but you would never know that since you have no clue what leadership is.
About Mularkey himself, How do you know he is not comfortable with the offense? Did you speak with him? He told you right? Of course not. You don't have that kind of access. To make an assumption that a coach, despite having certain philosophies, is unable to change is incredibly naive. As leaders in some capacity they have to learn whether its an opponents defense or a new offensive mentality. All coaches can learn and change. And Mularkey has been learning this offense since Cameron came on board. So I'm sure by now he is comfortable with it.
You know Armando, you are slipping fast. I agree with others who believe you have some ax to grind against the Dolphins (Could it be that game a few years ago where you supposed to be reporting and instead were rooting for the Broncos? Or some other garbage team so that the Dolphins did not go to the playoffs. I remember the Fish were ticked at you). And ever since you've been on the radio, where you have this outlet to use that ax without constraint, you have really been slipping. You tried with your blog about not being sure about Cameron to be softer. But with this current blog brings you back to that Ricky analysis you did last week which was absolutely horrible and without an ability to see the obvious.
I'm not sure if your smoking it or swallowing it, but you need some rehab. You are thinking you are who you are not. I think your Sports editor should reassign you to the High school beat so you can re-assess who you are as a reporter/columnist.

Sounds like Armando is starting to form an opinion on Cameron a few weeks early. My only real problem with this is that he lied and said he was calling the plays. Many people don't want to here that Mularky is calling the plays.

As far as dancing around questions, I too am a journalist, and I know this is something we deal with a lot. People just aren't straight forward, especially when there is something on the line.

Raz your entire post proves that the Dolphins read this blog religiously because you obviously are a team apologist trying to change the subject about the Dolphins many shortcomings and failings and instead shifting focus on Armando.

He has no axe to grind. Only two days ago -- before all this crap came out -- he said it was unfair to rage for or against Cam. So get real, loser.

You are a Dolphins employee. Which makes you an 0-12 loser.

I wonder if this was something forced onto Cam from on high in the organization? Remember what he said about the only way to get a feel of the game is from the sideline, not up in a box. He also said that he would always call plays until/if/when he ever found somebody he thought could do it better. I doubt that any of this was his idea. Interesting problem, now that the cat is out of the bag. It was probably supposed to be a quiet experiment (of Wayne's, etc.) and now they are busted. After the debacle of the Jets, it should be clear that Cam should still call the plays, but can he now that he's has his legs cut out from under him? No wonder he wouldn't/couldn't answer your question. What a galling embarrassment.

Actually I work for the Herald, not the Dolphins. And I am a Huge Dolphins fan. Season tickets, the whole nine. But nobody seems to address my points, just attack the fact the I criticized Armando (which I stick by). I'm not apologizing for the Dolphins. I went point by point against Armando's blog. Never said Cam was doing a good job, because I don't think he is. I'm addressing the points Armando made in his blog period, the end. Nothing further. I want to know where he gets his insight, his information and what the information is. Dissension, not whom (no names), but what they said. And I don't want the quotes reported thus far. Every single one can be taken in a different context. Sound bites are just that. They sometimes don't even convey the true meaning of the speaker. Give me something where somebody said, "You know we just aren't reacting to coach anymore," or "this coach sucks." Something that was specifically said about the performance of the coach or several players' feelings about the coach which make you feel they don't respect, respond, or follow him. No one has said any of it, in any story written in the Herald or spoken on radio. Don't give me this "I can't say it because its off the record crap." I don't want names, just what they said. Another thing, Don't get upset because Cam never said,"Oh and By the way, Mike Mularkey is calling the plays." Cam was never asked "Is someone other than yourself calling the plays?"..No..the focus was on Trent Green with a headset. So here's a question for Armando. If you are such an insider why didn't you know that before the game? Why are you finding out three days after the game. THREE DAYS AFTER. I think you aren't as inside as you think you are.
About Mularkey not being comfortable enough with the offense? Where did he get that from? Who told him? Mularkey? Or is it another assumption. My Fish are in bad shape. Top to bottom. But to us rabid fans, to report your own personal speculation when you don't have the truth, that's not reporting. I could have written the same garbage and I don't visit Dolphin camp everyday. So all you anonymous Armando Lover's make sure you clean your faces from his cream when you are defending him.
I say fire them all, strip the team from H Wayne Highprofit, if it'll guarantee us a spot in the AFC Championship game next year(Hey reach high!! Remember the 10-6 prediction, Armando). I don't think it will. But when we are trying to win at least one freaking game, don't invent crap just to write a story because your angry you were lied to, or they didn't think you were inside enough to know.

I'm mad as hell. I became a Dolphin fan back in 1972, I was all of seven years old then. Years later I went to school in Melbourne, having moved to Florida from another country. I remained a Dolphin fan when I moved to England in 1985, and later when I moved to Canada years later. I'm still in Canada, but feel that my years of being a loyal fan are almost done. I want to back a winner. I don't want my orange and teal shirt to be taken for a joke. I vividly remember the greatness of Marino, and the pain of never winning the big one with him. Since then, its been years of increasing mediocrity. What's wrong with a win, and some pride. Can anyone really blame players who put their bodies on the line week after week, for wanting to go somewhere else to try their luck? I'm sorry and bitterly disappointed as a fan, and angry with the organization. Without Jason Taylor and Zach Thomas, I would not even watch the games anymore.

Raz has a point: Armando is playing to the mob mentality that perpetuates this message board, rather than being a responsible journalist.

In fact, Armando appears to relish the fact that he can stir up the ADD-addled bloggers demanding, in all-caps, that Cameron resign. Recently, he crowed about having the most-read blog, no?

Camerons' comments regarding the offense were misleading only if you assume, as Armando did, that Cameron claimed he had been calling the plays all the time from the beginning. Cameron made no such statment. His comments about Zach were entirely appropriate. How did he know whether Zach would be able to play next year? Do you, Armando? The question itself was obtuse.

A more mature, or responsible, journalist with an opportunity to blog as Armando does, could provoke more meaningful commentary. Instead, Armando plays to, and incites, the torches & pitchforks crowd.

OK Armando, mission accomplished. You've got a blog populated by the crowd you want. But you don't have me anymore. I'm done with this unprofessional nonsense.

Coaching Defensive Football

Page 354

"........I know from firsthand experienc that the action on the field is very different from the action in the coach's box upstairs. Today, it is interesting to see several head coaches take on a game day responsibility of offensive coordinator. Mike Holmgren is doing it in Green Bay, Lindy Infante did the same thing at Indianapolis, and Kevin Gilbride has recently accepted the role with the Chargers. They may have an assistant with the title, and I am sure they receive information from the coach's box (which we all need at times), but it is obvious that they are making the final decision on the play called. In the early years at Miami, Howard Schnellenberger and Coach Shula worked together in a similar manner."

There is no way that Cam should be back next year. Come on, who really believes that next year will be any different? Other teams are capable of a turnaround, but not this team. Plenty of teams bring on new talent and get instant production. Not the fins. They could have Tom Brady back there and would still find a way to suck.
Bring in Parcells as GM, and get Cowher to coach. It may take another year but at least they will have a direction for the team that takes us out of the gutter. I got an idea for Wayne to make a profit this year, start making officially licensed dolphins paper bags to sell at the games.

And one last comment, Mando must have some bitter chip on his shoulder in general...lasts weeks dump on Ricky was about as unfair as one can be. A running back comes back to his first game in many months into a total mud slop field, has six carries before someone blatanly steps on him, and Mando immediately writes the guy off after only 6 carries. Under the circumstances, it was absolutey ludicrous to bash the guy on that. Mando, is by far the most immature and amateur sports writer out there.

Whats the HUGE story, Armando? Its been three days since your last column. This had better be real good. Of course, you have us all curious....spit it out already!

Look, the team is winless, the coaching is staff is trying ANYTHING to create a spark, to get a win. I don't give a rat's behind who's calling the plays. Cameron, Mularkey, Green...they all have experience in designing, calling, and running plays. They are all pros.

The coaches call the plays and the players on the field have to execute the plays. The plays as drawn up work. You don't have a play that is named, "QB gets sacked and fumbles ball." Bottom line is that on Sunday, our WRs weren't getting open, which caused Beck to take too much time and get hit. Certainly doesn't help that when they DO get open, they drop the pass.

Last thing...some of you need to forget about this fascination with the Tuna and Cowher. They aren't coming.

I keep saying, if and when the Dolphins win another Superbowl, it will be with a coach who has never won a Superbowl before. History has shown that past superbowl winners cannot repeat their feat with a fresh team. You think we're gonna be the first? NO

It's become clear to be, though, that we've swung to the other extreme...a nice, homey, Midwestern guy. This and his delusional, perpetually Pollyanna perspective make him ill suited lead men in the unforgiving world of the NFL.

Cam and Nick do have one thing in common though-the ability to NOT answer a question (i.e. LIE). I must say, though, that I found Nick's non-answers to be vastly more entertaining with his ridiculous ramblings and (mis)use of the English language.

Bottom-line: Cam can't hack it as a head coach. He's got to be put out of his misery (and ours!).

Since Sunday I have been routinely posting about why this experiment gone awry needs to be ground to a halt. To this end many people including Armando have branded my comments as not being on point. Hopefully, this is the clincher....

There is no sin in admiting a mistake, however, there is a huge problem when you keep on making them.

The Dolphins have a great opportunity to go out and hire Bill Cowher after this season is over and to not pull the string on this would be a HUGE mistake.

Hopefully, Cowher will be able to start the process of rebuilding this teams attitude as there is talent out there, and by using our unfortunately high draft status he could gain volume of picks (as in trading without looking at a sheet as Saban and Cameron have done in the past).

1) Cowher has never said he wants to coach again -- saying "miami has an opportunity to get a great coach" is complete dogcrap at this point. HE RETIRED!

2) Ya, lets hire another new coach to come in again, replace 1/3 of the roster with his own guys again, and start over again.
Then when we go 2-14 next year, we can listen to "CAN COWHER -- TRY THE TUNA" next season....

There are definitely concerns about Cam -- but he's not a bust yet.
Do you think Cleveland regrets firing Bellichek? I bet they do.

I understand the emotions of this dreadful season, but lets try to use our brains, people. Another coaching change is not gonna help get the dolphins closer faster.

Give CamMueller another draft and another season. If things aren't significantly better a year from now, then you replace them.

Its really to bad Saban didnt have enough patience for the NFL to stay the course cause that just set us back another 2 yrs. Cam and Mueller had a good draft. It would benifit us to stay a course. I love these phins always will. But the blame is the owners and the owners alone he allowed this all to happen by not staying the course. Do you really believe Shula would have let this happen???

Hey "Just a fan" actually these blogs do have an impact but not directly. It was one of the posters on this blog who pointed out that Green was sending the plays to Beck, which started the whole play calling issue. And that is just one example.

Armando has even used the blog to formulate questions for Cameron. So there is an impact and the fans should have a voice, but to say we hate the Miami Dolphins is so far off base it might as well be in L.A. The emotion expressed here is certainly not out of hatred, it is purely from our love of this great franchise and our inability to cope with this terrible season.

Some of my rants here have saved my own sanity because I only follow one team in all of sports... The Miami Dolphins. When I was younger I watched every damn sport on TV, but I cannot devote that kind of time to it anymore. So yes, this blog is relevant.
