Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

This makes sense. Time to look at rookies. Plus they need the roster spot. Players are dropping faster than they can be signed. No harm in having healthy players .I hope Zach gets better. Maybe the rookie will get a run back on a fumble recovery...........fresh legs and all.

Thanks for your work Zach. Get better and come back. Next year will be better - that has to be the easiest prediction made!

I think Miami will pull out one win and keep the team off of a record it doesn't want.

The Phins have too much bad luck, simply too much. Somehow, we have to break the curse, for a curse it is.

Someone needs to come clean and 'fess up to it. C'mon, who was it? You guys been stealing ashtrays and towels again? Didn't tip the bus driver, or what?

We need some good, spell-breakin' Voodoo here.

Zach, relax and enjoy Christmas with your wife(while you still can remember her name). You can't chance any more hits to the head bro.
Any Ricky sightings? Did he just vanish or what?

Dammit, that sucks. However the 'fins are horrible, no need for Thomas to risk his life for this God awful team.

Get well Zach, hope you are here next year.

Hey dolphans, what's the name of that promising rookie during pre-season? He wore #53 I believe, and was a really promising pass rusher. I really haven't been able to follow the Fins that closely this year, and I kinda lost touch as to what happened to him. ANYONE know? thanks, and go Fins

Can Wayne fire Cameron before the season ends and make me head coach? In all seriousness, when one of your franchise players says he expects to still play, you don't put him on I/R!!!!!!!

~The next game we should chant "fire Cam"!~

Zach...please listen to them and come back healthy next year. This season is lost, obviously, and you have nothing to prove and nothing to protect. I want you coherent when you make your Hall of Fame speech in about 8 years.

The entire team should be put on IR for the balance of the season, just don't bother playing in the next games, you haven't bothered in the last 12 why ruin this perfect record.

"Rosenhaus said he asked the Dolphins to reconsider, but they said they couldn't afford to wait and had to think about the other 52 players on the roster."
Oh yea, like the season matters anymore? Cam sucks and and he's a joke, like many players think he is. This clown needs to go.

Zach IS and always has been the D of the Fins and if he wants to come back, why can't he? Who's selling us out???? A team is only as good as their backbone and Zach and JT are it, period.
