It’s amazing what Zack Thomas does to improve a Rush Defense.

What a bone head play by Ginn and insane play by Trent Green. Hope he recovers

With the Dolphins up 3 (19-16) and even getting the ball back tied 19-19 with 5 minutes left, I thought Cameron would have his first win. The Texans could not stop Ronnie Brown for most of the game.

But poor execution, unimaginative play calling and lack of depth ended any hopes of a win. Like the Redskins and Jets game, Cameron made no adjustments in the 4th quarter while his opposing coach did.

This is hard to watch

Ronnie Brown is getting better all the time. It is sad that Trent went out, and the defence knowing that the texans would be throwing the ball, couldnt stop them from throwoing the ball. No pass rush whatsoever. but, the injuries to the secondary came back to bite them in the rear.
I am gonna buy me some BECKS beer, in hoe thayt BECK will get a start soon!

That no timeout call was such a joke. Pee-wee coaches would do better,

Cameron blew this game. He had 2nd & 9, under 2 minutes left and was in or close to field goal range. Had he handed off twice to Ronnie Brown, even if he didn't get the first, the clock would have run down, or Houston would have had to use it's time outs. Then they could have attempted what would certinly would have been no more than a 56 yard field goal. If they missed Hoston would have had very little time, or no time outs. Instead you throw two incomplete passes, take no time off the clock, and punt. This guy is not smart enough to coach a high school team, let alone one in the NFL.

1) Trent has played his last down for the Dolphins and the NFL.
2) Lemon handled himself well considering the timing.
3) The O line continues to improve.
4) Guess we missed Zach more than we knew.
5) Jason Allen and Travis Daniels. Put those South Florida homes up for sale now.
6) Olindo who?
7) 1st round = O or D tackle. 2nd = CB, 3rd = safety, 4th = receiver.
8) Ginn gets involved and shows baby steps.
9) Ronnie looking like he's having fun.
10) Cam, why save the third t.o.? Freeze the damn kicker.

Why the hell didn't Cam let Feeley kick that field goal. Their kicker was hitting them all day, and Feeley is our 2nd best player.

Same old story if you're a Dolphin fan. For the last 10 years our "great" defense could not make a stop when the game was on the line. Zach and Jason are very good but our defense as a whole has always been overrated.
Great job Cam in not even trying to ice the kicker! 0-16 here we come, just don't screw up this first round pick Mueller.

Trent Green is a dumbass. I think that hit last year did permanent damage to the ol'noggin. Dolphins made the plays to win but the Texans were the better team.

this was the perfect time to put beck in against a bad defense Cleo Lemon is not the future and had at least four passes that should have been intercepted give beck a chance they have nothing to loose anyway

I don't think injuries to the secondary is a problem since the entire secondary sucks! Nobody in the dolphins secondary would start on the elite teams like the Patriots, Colts or Steelers.

The secondary should be embarrased and ashamed of themselves. To struggle and ultimately lose against the lowly Texans is painful to watch. Every weekend I say I'll watch something else but always end up watching the fins and getting my heart broken. I'd say no more, but I know come next week I'll feel otherwise.

I feel bad for Zach and Jason.

All that time Huizinga and his bonehead staff spent interviewing coaches and they came up with this clown! Even college coaches ice the opposing kickers! This team is getting harder and harder to watch. I'm starting to doubt Wayne H. and his staff of Weidemeyer and Joe Bailey!

0-4, What have we learned? The offense is getting somewhat better. Cleo Lemon did well considering the circumstances. The offensive lines continues to improve and R.Brown is beginning to show signs of life in a consistant manner. Ginn showed some glimpes of what might be coming in the future but it's to early.

The defensive line did much better than the previous week but the secondary is HORRIBLE. They couldn't cover my grandmother and she's in a wheelchair!

This worrel safety got TOASTED all day. That white boy can't cover for nothing. That says alot about Travis Daniels and Jason Allen. I thinks it time to CUT those two guys.

The secondary cost us the game. At least, we had a shot at winning the game.

Don't give up hope my fellow Phins Fans...We can still go 11 and 5 and make the playoffs!!! Pigs can fly, there's a pink elephant in the room, and I can spin straw into gold.

After the shock of another loss some things were better. Ginn looked pretty good as a reciever, they didn't go his way much, but when they did he was open. 2 plays stand out for him the first was a play just before the half, he was wide open down the side line deep and Lemon tried to squeese the ball between the defenders. Throw the ball deep there and Ginn would still be running. Plus an almost great catch in the end zone with a guy all over him.

Ronnie Brown is stepping up, and could be a force in this league, and the D-line at least put the clamp down on the running game. Although it was another loss they did look better and tht is encouraging

First more predictable plays, run first down, pass second. Then doing passes instead of runs at a time we needed to eat up the clock, then not going for the field goal, and finally not calling timeout to ice the kicker. Every other coach is calling a timeout last second to ice the kicker, Cameron does not even try. He does not know how to manage the clock. It's great having Zach back and I think Lemon will be better than Green, though I hope Green will be okay. Keep on running Brown, your doing great. Hey Jahndoh! No comments? Still going to defend Cameron? We are getting closer to the end of the year.

So true, and it not only stops there it is across the board bad team. This will take a few years to fix, I only hope the management takes the proper approch to rebuilding through the draft instead of using castoffs from other teams.
