It's an amazing story, well let them all compete for the opening spots at QB, including Pep.

Rapture,
That is by far the most ignorant thing someone could have said. If you had ANY intelligence you would know that only an extremely small percentage of Muslims are so extreme. Also it would go against much of what he would believe in if he wanted to do such a thing. It insensitive and idiotic comments like yours that make people lose hope that people are actually smart. Why dont you pick up a book and learn about the religion rather than make such comments. And i'm not muslim if thats what your thinking, i'm catholic. Also, please stop being a Dolphin fan. We are not too fond of racists.

Everyone ignore this guy. He's doing it for attention and he's getting it.

Great story on Hamdan and I wish him much success on and off the field.

I'm a retired Marine and veteran of Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom. I've served with all kinds of minority groups, both seniors and troops.

Rapture, consider yourself lucky you weren't one of my troops, for you would be headed for a courtmartial and some brig time over that comment.

You cant take that comment to heart that is how these forums turn into seek and destroy missions!I think anyone who has to over come adversity of this magnitude gets total respect from me .It had to take alot for him not to give up or turn to a life of crime every person has choices and its apparent that he made the right ones!For him to just be competing is a victory in itself!GOOD STORY HELL YEAH!!!GOOD LUCK!!

HA HA HA. Another brainwashed "Christian" I take it, especially with that handle. You do know, Jesus taught forgiveness and above all redemption. Too bad your so stuck up in false interpretations, but your a follower. I forgive you son.

This is what this story is about, overcoming adversity and making the best from what you have. Good post. As for the rest of the majority of you, grow up!

Total non-story. Unless of course, the Fins decide to be the only team in the league that carries 4 qbs on its roster. For the dimwitted, and/or those with short attention spans, the potential qb combinations for the 07 Fins will be one of the following:
Culp/Beck/Lemon
Green/Beck/Lemon
Green/Culp/Beck (highly unlikely). The chances of this getting beating out Lemon for the #3 spot are in a range between virtually non-existent and totally non-existent.

This kid is just yet another former Indiana Hoosier and/or former Cam player, and/or friend of the family, who gets to fill a role for a little while, and make a few grand a week in the process.

This guy sounds like a role model more people should follow. As far as the comment that many people have had it worse, I am not sure how many up us have had our homes invaded by another country. I have no idea of what some of you nuts are thinking. Perhaps your mother dropped you on your head as she went to fire up her crack pipe while giving birth to you at the NASCAR race.

I was friends with Gibran in college. He was a great guy. Although he probably won't make the team. I have enjoyed having him participate for my Dolphins! Good luck Gibran and go IU!

I feel for this guy based on the story and all, But....
Did anybody think for a minute, he was making the cut?

Come on... An early May story on a fourth stringer who isn't making the team?

Camp had to produce a better story or two than this!

Go Phins!

You know, I really feel for these guys. You have over confident S.O.B. QBs out there who take everything for granted and 'assume' the starting job is theirs just as long as they show up. I like a hard worker. But if hard work is all you needed to be a producer in the NFL, then there would be 50 teams in the NFL and they would play three times a week. Sorry, Hamdan. I hear theres decent money to be made in the CFL, AFL, and NFL Europa, if it makes you feel any better.
