Remember when the Chargers went 4-12 in 2003, and then 12-4 in 2004. Know who was calling the plays for them? Your boy, Camy Cam. Oh, and he did it starting two rookie offensive linemen. I smell 8-8.

Do I think Camy Cam will struggle trying to play head coach AND offensive coordinator? YES. Do I see someone getting hired mid season? YES. Hmm, Bill Cowher? Hmm, Marty Schottenheimer? Only in a perfect world.

It looks like Setele's going to be a real player. That's a good thing since he's one of the guys we got for welker.

"Rookie quarterback John Beck, who has seemingly mastered the complicated playbook, said Satele has the smarts and hands to handle the center position."

Wasn't the great one (DummyPepper) struggling with learning this offense over several months and Beck mastered it in 2-3 months? Amazing!

Now that wasn't so hard was it? In just one draft this current Dolphins coaching staff has rebuilt the Offensive line. Now granted it is just pre-season and these guys are still young, but it is a good start. Something Shula, J.J., Whiny and the Traitor could not do...Thank you Cam amd Randy

Before you characterize others as morons, it might be a good idea to learn the difference between 'your' and 'you're.' Not only did you set yourself up, but you knocked yourself down.

What's with the conclusion that the O-line has been rebuilt and is now headed for greatness? Granted, for the first time in a awhile, there's room for optimism concerning the offense, but don't draw conclusions from the players' performance during the first few days of rookie camp.

Duh'ta Fumblepepper wasn't intelligent enough to learn Cam's offense and Lemon won't get on the field.What is it with you Duh'ta lovers ?,oh that's right he's black,so he get's a free ride.Duh'ta won't play in 08 and I doubt after that he's done like Vick.

I'm liking this. This guy is going to bring a toughness and nastiness that's long been lacking on the O-line. I hope he's entrenched there for the next 15 years. He and Beck will soon be fixtures on the offense.

I'm just so thankful we're talking about training camp. FINALLY!!!

I'm excited about this season and this crop of new players. I think there are a lot of young players with tremendous potential on the O-line. Are we going to the Super Bowl this season? Probably not. Is the new management building a solid foundation for future, long-term success? Only time will tell, but I like what I'm seeing and reading about camp and the new players, a lot. Beck, Satele, Solai, and some others seem like real players who will help this franchise.

First of all, If we go 8-8 this year I will be happy.

Secondaly, When is "Ted Ginn a Miami Dolphin"???

This is getting old with these rookies holding out and they haven't even taken a snap. You know, if Cameron knew this guy's family and says Ginn has good character then why is there a hold out? Everyone is already upset with not taking Quinn. So Ginn has has a lot to prove. If I had a lot to prove and I have great character I would be in camp with my millions of dollars!

Regardless of the critics, there is a nice sense of optimism surrounding the teams new additions. It feels like we've got some new hard working, quality guys that are buying into the coaches way of thinking and it feels good. Granted, I think we're all just giddy because camp is about to start, but even though suckass Saban was supposed to be an upgrade, there was nothing but tension when he was in charge. No information, nobody can see the team, no one on the team could talk; it was such an unhealthy atmosphere. Now, not only does it seem like we've got some offensive intelligence going on (not even including getting rid of C-pep), but it feels like the players are ALLOWED to enjoy themselves a little bit more. Looking forward to a fun year! Go Phins!

i hope setele turns out to be a great player, but him starting this year makes me nervous. I mean he has 0 nfl experience and 0 cold game experience.

You're an idiot. Cam moron? That's not even funny. You're so much smarter than the head coach and that's the put down you come up with. Truly pathetic.
