geeeee.....maybe we should have kept Donnie Jones. Wasn't he the first person gone?, and now we need him back. Next week Cameron will be looking for a tightend who can make plays, good thing we have Randy McM....oh wait, nevermind. Oh well, at least Green will have decent blocking protection on the left, because McIntosh was doing well, w/ Carey on the left side. Man, I would hate to see Carey play LT again when he was horrible over there....OOOPS

Wow ... what a wonderfully positive comment to start the ball rolling !!!

Brilliant on your part though .... you'd sure rather have an inferior punter, just so you could have a holder that's worked the position before. NOT !!

I don't suppose it ever occurred to you to just read the article and then go to the next article, etc. without commenting, seeing as how you really didn't have anything worthwhile to add ??

I've never seen so much negativity toward the team from it's fans. And the new coach and HIS players haven't even played a down.

This franchise has taken some major hits from bad coaching and bad decisions by the owner. But we seem to have a good set-up now with a new coach and a strong GM. Let them do their thing. They deserve the same support that any other Dolphins coach of the past has gotten. It just seems like some Dolphin fans have turned turncoat on the team.

They THINK THEY KNOW. There is a laugh!

Go root for another team boil heads!

Place kicking looks easy (when they split
the goal posts). But as we have just read
it is not.
Who held for Garo?

I am so excired this morning it is a whole New Day! I woke up this morning did my usuall thing looking at the internet, and low and behold, no story this morning about the irrelevant Quarterback!!!

The holder for the field goal will prove to be very important this year with Ted Ginn Jr. opening up the field for us, According to our checkered past this could be our best scoring chance!

Maybe give the job to Ginn; if the the hold is botched he could run it in.

That's true Duh'ta is good at holding the ball,and holding it ,and holding it.But he's just not smart enough even for this job.He would keep the ball because it's all about Duh'ta,get up try to run and fumble.

OK, Cam is related to George W. Bush.

Are you joking? Do you even watch the games? You dont think a team that picks ninth in the draft is in need of some changes??
Randy Mcmichael was good when he felt like being good. Good one game, then MIA for the next three. True he has a ton of talent, but he didnt always bring it. Same goes for Chambers.
As far as MacIntosh goes. As bad as the line has been for the last few years, who cares if they bring anyone from that group back.

I agree with you 100%.

The other funny thing is people will complain if there are no columns to read and some are complaining about this column being boring. WTF - every story can't be a bombshell. Try supporting the team and the coach and stop whining about everything!

I think a story on Dan Mariono's ball sack would have been more interesting than this!
