One of the truely great players in Dolphins history, knocked out a number of guys in his career...great physical presence. He'll be missed. But it is time to start developing the younger guys and perhaps draft a couple of LB in the up coming draft...

That is so he can remain healthy and be traded next year, probably. I bet we have seen the last of our great hero, Zack.

Nothing to gain and lots to lose to let him play. Let him get completely healthy. This year is completely over. There's always 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
Abraham Wright. He's on the practice squad I think.

Is it true; the Hatians put a voodoo curse on Joe Robbie/Pro Player/Dolphins stadium when they moved there ?? Because they left the OB...... That is what i have heard, think about our luck since moving there....Hmmmmmmm

Another questionable and disappointing move by Dolphin upper management. Aside from coach Cameron and GM Rany Mueller, is it any wonder why this team will go down in history as the only team to never win a game in its entire season? Maybe we should seriously consider getting a new GM that can actually draft good players and a coach like Bill Cowher or Bill Parcells that actually cares about winning a game instead of settling for improvement week to week?

You did read the article, yes? It says Zach wants to play (no big shock) but the doctors will not clear him to play.

Besides, if Cameron let Zach play and he goes out and gets cracked like Trent Green, fans would be all over him about playing Zach too soon.

Now, do you have some other inside information that would tell you that you have more knowledge in this than the Head freaking Coach of the Miami Dolphins, or do you just decide that you have more experience than he does?

I love Zach and hoe he returns feeling better next year. I think he could help the youngens.

That being said, staying on the roster is just being selfish (not that you can totally blame him for wanting to play). He still has lightheadedness, which means he would miss this weeks game as well, and then there are 3 weeks left after that.

Might as well give some younger players a chance.

Most of them have better information than the coach and the GM (especially the jet interlopers)!

Miami , FL (AP)-A seven-year old boy was at the center of a Miami-Dade County courtroom drama today when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible. The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her.

When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried and said that they also beat him. After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him. After two recesses to check legal references and confer with the child welfare officials, the court granted temporary custody to the Miami Dolphins, whom they firmly believe are not capable of beating anyone.

I hear that Zack can't backwords from 10 (really). It's time to consider ones future health and quality of life. This game, the NFL isn't worth having mush brain..

Actually, everyone commenting on this blog (including you) has the experience to coach this team to 0-12, so it's not supprising that Cam makes another bone-headed move. I guess having guys like Greg Camarillo on the roster is more important than having Thomas playing the last 2 games. Are you sure about that???
