Really liked the last two items, how Beck is improving and learning. I hope he'll move to second on the depth chart soon and have a chance to be the starter if/when Green is injured.

LB Joey Porter (knee). Porter was not outside, and Cameron said he doesn't want players like Porter with injuries to their lower bodies standing around for hours at a time.

I like this part of Cameron. Very practical and is thinking of the players. Maybe this year we will not have another December Collapse.

Everything I've read about Beck throughout training camp has been extremely positive. I wouldn't be surprised if he moves up to 2nd on the depth chart by mid-season, and really wouldn't be surprised to see him start late in the season. At the very least, he seems to be light-years ahead of Quinn, and it seems the staff made a great move in selecting Beck over Quinn. So what if it takes a year for him to mature and be comfortable as an NFL QB, it appears he has all the tools needed to be a good one.

Though I know we're going to have our struggles this year on offense, we now at least have an offense that is going to go on the attack, which is way better than the Johnson/Wannstache/Saban era cha-cha 1-2-3-kick offenses we've had to endure for so long. Go 'Phins!

I like it. if Alabi stays healthy, they've got an offensive line to groom. i really hope Beck gets to start this year, preferably the second half of the season.

I dont understand why Beck is not number 2 right now. Almost every report has been extremely positive.

youd need "deep balls" if you were a mormon, gotta have something for the next wife.

Have you Dolfans seen the poll results on whether or not Zach should be in the Hall of Fame.What a joke there are actually some idiots who voted no.He's a sure fired Hall of Famer in my book.For the way he plays at his size,and his Pro Bowls,and leading the Dolphins every year in tackles,those who voted no must be on crack.

The left side of the o-line makes me cringe. I just don't know about Carey and Mormino protecting Green's blind side. I do like the fact we have a young group of lineman. I just hope Green doesn't get killed out there.

Let's not give up on Cleo just yet.

It appears we have gone to the best QB situation (1 through 3) we've had in a long time.

If Green can't stay healthy I'm comfortable with Cleo. Let Beck have a full year then give him an honest shot at the starter's job next year.

Where are all the people who booed when Gin was picked? The Ginn/Beck selection is looking very cagey at this point.

Who would have ever thought the first pre season game would be a sellout?

Go Fins!

Trent Green is a mere stop-gap AND he can mentor from the sidelines, as Kurt Warner has been doing. I have a good feeling that we will see John Beck starting sooner than later... especially if Green gets hit hard again. I think it's ALL about that offensive line this year, as it will dictate the fate and face of the QB. Things are looking good so far. GO PHINS!

Trent in my opinion will only be starting for a little while.Whether he takes the big hit or just plain stinks it up he will be sitting before to long.I was hoping miami would do exactly what they did on draft day they went for the 2 for one deal.You all will see that we infact got more bang for our buck.Beck and Ginn will be dynamic and the Oline will protect the Qb.The peolpe who are counting us out will be eating their own words!Miami will emerge atop the AFC east again and eventually we will make it all the way!You can never keep a good team down.HELL YEAH GO FINS!!!!

I would like to see the game on TV. Is it being broadcast?

Reports like these make me feel more comfortable with my cautious optimism.

What's the Polynesian word for Zonk?

Let's get that 70's spirit and ability back!

I have been one of the few saying from day one, if Cam's the offensive genius everyone say that he is, then give him a chance. Obviously he knows more about evaluating talent then any of us. Being a good coach is more than calling the right play at the right time; it also knows who to play.

GO PHINS!!!
