The nfl needs to look into this crap, no excuse for this condition, make the team do what the pats had to do, a new field that works. Bill p.s. I bet if big Ben step in one of those pot holes and broke a leg they would had wish they fix the darn field.

Was Lorenzo Booker even active for this game? How bad must he be to not even sniff the field in a season like this one. Cam may have been shrewd with the selections of Ginn and Beck, but boy, does a 3rd round pick for a bust from FSU seem foolish now...

Lorenzo Booker evidently was another in a long line of wasted draft picks for the Dolphins. Why wasn't he activated instead of Ricky Williams for the Steelers game. Seems to me a guy who had been with the team all season would have been a better choice than a guy who hasn't played an NFL game in nearly two years. Also, when the fins were in Steelers territory last night. they never tried to throw a pass anywhere near the endzone. Cam's offense is not aggressive enough.

I wonder the same thing. Where is Booker? The guy can't be that bad. He seemed to be a versatile albeit less talented version of Reggie Bush, what with good hands and cutting ability and he doesn't even get an opportunity and he was a 3rd round pick? Makes no sense at all.

Agree. They also need to take a look at the" inadvertent" stomp to Ricky Williams back.

That should have been unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and a $20,000 fine.

Who The Hell IS Camstache??? That has to be the dumbest comment ever, and you call your self a dolfan?

Now what's funny is in 2008 the Fins are following in the Steelers Footsteps in regards to Pittsburgh's Mascot Steely McBeam. If you havn't heard the new Fins Mascot next season is going to be: Wanny McStache!!!!

Why is Cam implying that Ricky was injured possibly for coming into the lineup too soon?

He was stepped on the back. Nothing to do with 'conditioning' or lack of 'real time hitting'.

I don't get Cam on this one.

In that muck those guys were probably wearing 1 1/2 to 2 inch cleats. That wasn't just a stomp it was assault!! If those were metal cleats like in the old days he would've been bleeding severely! There is no wonder why he went out. The reason no one is looking into this is because the fins are 0-11. If it had been Malroney or LT there would've been reviews and fines levied.

Hey I forgot to add that even though the feild was in horrible condition I thought that was a very entertaining game. Real football! Just think all the other sports would've stayed in the locker room or post-poned the game. I loved it when the football stuck in the turf. LMAO!! Too bad the fins lost, they fought hard.

You are a moron!!!! Brady Quinn has yet to take a snap in the NFL so how can you compare him w/ Beck. Beck has two starts 0 INTS and has managed the game very well for a rookie; without any real offensive weapons to help him. He has also played against two top defenses and throw in a field that a high school team would not have played on. Spongebob crackhead turn off your computer, stop trying to analyze something you have no idea about or probabley ever played and go back to your crack pipe.

You're right that was intentional, it should more than $50,000.
