What the F...!
We take a banged up #2 receiver at best and then take a guy who should be closer to his prime instead we gaet a 26yr old rookie.

And who cares about Ginn's family....unless mom, dad or sis are gonna line up on sunday WHO CARES!

If this is the future....it sucks!

Samson Satele seems like a great pick-up but the line still needs more attention.

Chill Todd....did ya catch ESPN today at 11AM?

a 'banged up #2 receiver' just got 15 minutes of praise from Kiper and ALL the analysts....jeeeeeez...Jaworsk i showed tape of him BURNING UP Aaron Ross and Leon Hall...who are they....oh....1st round CB picks this year...

What are you smokin dude? Ginn would be a Heisman candidate and top 4-5 pick next year if he goes back!!

Lord, they even said BECK was a steal at #40!!!!

Satele can play G or C, and with Solaia... plays NASTY.

So all the educated football people said it was basically a wonderful draft so far (all the way to Solaia in 4th rd....he could have gone in 2nd rd!!)....it's just Cam has done a BAD job of trying to put ignorant minds at ease about what we're doing!!!

Everyone is upset because we didn't pick the "envogue" pick of Brady Quinn. If he can turn the Browns into Superbowl Champs...then we can say "yep, we screwed the pooch on that one..." but I really don't think he was worth all that. He's not like Cutler, Lienart, etc. Quinn could not win a big game at all, and we play 6 big games every year...our division rivals. One rumor is the Beck played better in cold weather then Quinn. And we always play NE, NY, or Buffalo in Nov~Dec.

Saying goes..."You'll never make everyone happy every time." So, i'm looking foward to see what happens with our future. We are not a Superbowl team, but we need to rebuild, so lets do that...REBUILDING STARTS IN 2007!!!

I finally see fans that have their head on right and are not caught up in the "quinn band wagon"(Dolfan from CO and Dean-O).Fans are just fans and dont see the big picture,cameron has worked out this players, he has attended the combine he has the inside stuff that we the fans dont have access too you only read what reporters let you read I have faith in mueller and cameron that they know what they are doing but true fans follow their team where ever they go and support their team on most decisions they are some obvious flukes that teams do but hey everyone is human I think they've had a good draft and like always if john beck becomes the next tom brady you know everyone will be on that band wagon.

Beck was sacked 66 times in his 1st 3 seasons before working primarily out of the shotgun in 2006. Sat out with 2 bad ankle sprains that season and suffered a separated shoulder against Brady Quinn and ND and didn't finish the game in 2004. Busted up his throwing hand and suffered concussion and missed ND game in 2003. The level of competition was overall weak and Beck is a project.
As far winning big games just ask Cam Cammeron who lost to both division rivals in the playoffs at SD about big games.
Yes, and Ted Ginn Jr. is a very good dancer in big games as well.(Now he can do it listening to some Beck).
Cam must have vacationed in Hawaii with all the picks from out there, next year thier QB.
We were made a commitment to winning not rebuilding this year I guess another facade for us to fall for.
I guess ignorence is bliss.

I guess you don't have any problem living up to your first name. I'd like to know where you are getting your mis-information from. I guess the Oregon team that Beck put 400 yards passing on and beat in this years Las Vegas bowl was weak having the number one pass defense in the Pac-10. He did not miss the Notre Dame game in 03 which BYU won, by the way. Before you start acting like a real BOZO you ought to get your facts straight.

I hate that greasy,greedy s.o.b. Drew Rosenhaus. The big mistake stanton made was hiring him as an agent. The Dolphins are getting rid of alot of his players.
He seemed pro Dolphin in the beginning,but now he'll screw the Dolphins any chance he gets. The fact that he's on channel 7 and on the radio is a Hypocrisy. If your a Dolphan you should call channel 7 and tell them you don't want the Dolpins enemy on thier show.

Um, Jose,.....Ted Ginn was so unhealthy that he couldn't even do a mere workout for a single team. I don't know what you are talking about here. This makes the decision to pick him at #9 even more perplexing.

Um, he had a pro day in Columbus and visited the Phins for 2 days. But besides that, Cam has never seen him work out. Where do you get your information from?

What nobody talks about is once again the key to every football team in the league. The O-Line. Did they draft any tackles? Ok, I fully support the Ginn Jr. Pick and Beck Pick. But here is what I do not understand,#1) WHY DID THEY NOT GET 1 FRIGGIN BACKUP TACKLE?,#2) WHY DID THEY NOT GET DAN PATRICK, the guy is a beast of a blocker and available all the way in the fifth round!!!, and big #3- wHY did we not get one CB or Safety? To all the hypocrites and nay sayers out there in dolphin land, I've been a fan for 20 years, but you guys/girls need to really thing about the #1 area of need, and it wasn't the QB- A monkey can play QB(no offense Trent Dilfer), but you HAVE GOT TO HAVE SOME KIND OF OFFENSIVE LINE!!!!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!
I agree with you about the offensive line but hey. This is a rookie head coach and there are are so many picks. We drafted flexible offensive lineman who will fit well with the ones we alrdy have. Plus we really dont need to worry about Defensive picks. Being Ranked #4 last year in defense, obviously the guys we alrdy had areny horrible. There is a s**tload of veteran leadership on that defense. I do agree we coulda used another OL though...

I see you reside in Columbus. Maybe I (like others) don't know what's really going on. Teddy's still not good to go for this weekend's mini-camps, this much we know. Rumors are rampant about he'll be in a "boot" of sorts for 6 more weeks. How could he have worked out (I mean on the field) on Pro-Day when he sustained the injury WHEN he did? And he's still going to be wearing a "boot" 6 weeks from even today (04/30/07)? Maybe you're the right guy to set the record straight. At this point, in hearing so many different stories about Ginn, some of us don't know what to think! Were some of us misinformed? I've heard everything from sprained heel to broken foot. Why is there so much mystery behind this injury? And why did everyone in Miami and the whole NFL boooooo us when we all thought we knew Ginn's situation? Seriously, not trying to be a d!ck, what is going on with Ginn?

That CB position is what's making me scream right now. I would've used our 3rd round pick on a CB. Maybe after June cuts we will have the answer come our way.

Word around here is that he is at about 85%. Everyone just wants to make sure it is beyond 100% before pushing it. With his bad foot and all, he ran a 4.35 a few weeks ago at his pro day. And that is at 85%! Trust me, I have watched every game he has played in at OSU. Just watch the youtube link that someone posted above to ease your worries. He consistenly blew by Ross from Texas and Hall from Michigan who were both first round corners. This guy is fast, scary fast.
