when c.c said he wanted ginn at the #9 pick of the draft whe he could have got him somewhere about # 20. when only about half the teams have a decent q.b.made me wonder.since that everything got worse.

I doubt cameron will be fired after this year. Its his first year as a head coach. Who among us is perfect? And Ginn is getting double coverage. Miami just needs one more fast wr so ginn doesn't get double coverage. Then, watch out. Miami definately needs to draft another QB. Becks ball handling skills were awful. I would guess we will see one sometime between the 2nd and 4th rounds, and maybe a late round QB as well. Lemon is a free agent.

I doubt they will pick two QB's in the draft, if they can pick up a dangerous veteran wideout in free agency, then they pick Glen Dorsey or Chris Long with thier first pick then if Colt Brennan is still there in the 33rd spot they should get him, Lemon may leave, but I think they retain Green as a QB next year or some type of QB mentor. The Phins' have had so many injuries this year, it's no wonder they can't win a game.

i really believe that cam & co should be fired!!! alot of dolfans are worried about stability if wayne hires a new coach. if we keep cam for next year not only will there be turmoil with the present players this regime will for sure waste the #1 pick on another punt retuner.this team needs a proven winner as head coach.cam is way over his head with this bunch.#1 priority is getting a franchise qb.i liked beck,but since i seen him play the last 3 games he looks lost.the dolphins are in serious trouble, i dont see cam as the answer.bring in marty or the tuna. we need somebody to fix this mess asap.i feel cam made this team even worse.he shows no emotion on the sidelines,playcalling a joke,and he is losing his players.i know he has very limited talent and injuries up the ying yang.but please, you are coaching prof. athletes.win 1 or 2 games.i have been a dolfan for over 30 years.i never thought i would see this team end up like this.i am at my last wits about this team.please wayne hire somebody who can coach and evaluate talent via the draft & fa.the fate of the dolfan nation is in your hands!!!!!!

I think the question has to be,if the Dolphins were'nt riddled with injuries, would they be winless,and if the Pats had lost their secondary,running backs,defensive tackles,mid,linebakers,reciver s to trades and had a rookie center,qb and coach,would they be undefeated,I say not to both counts,what Im getting at is this,name a coach who could,ve had a winning season with all the issues that Cam has been dealing with and continues to deal with on a daily bases,I know for one I would'nt want to be in his shoes,and theres no way I would have taken the job and mess Saban left behind,so for us its easy to kick him when he's down,but if he was winning we'd all be saying what a genuis Cam,Randy and Wayne are,I say lets see how he handles the draft,what trades he makes in the off season and what free agents they can lure to Miami and find out what if anything he can do with a healthy team.

I would prefer them to draft one, but, with as many needs as miami has, you could always sign a free agent, and draft a wide receiver, then you play the best wr. I think Green has played his last game, but having an experienced QB around is not a bad idea. either Chris Long or Glenn Dorsey would be a good pick. My preference would be for Miami to trade out of the #1 spot for additional picks.

If you trade out of the first pick for additional picks, you just gave the Patriots the first pick in the draft, remember, they have the 49er's pick, and right now they would be picking second. If Darren Mcfadden comes out of college, I don't want the Patriots picking him to run all over us twice a year. The Patriots have a low pick regardless of the situation, but I would rather see the Dolphins pick the best player in the draft (RB, WR, QB) with their first pick than to let the Patsies have them, once you pick the best player, you trade him to a team with that need and additional picks. As much as I would like to see them take Long or Dorsey, they need to make sure the Patsies don't pick a player like McFadden. And if we did keep Mcfadden, could you imagine how strong our running game would be, especially if we had Williams (granted he stays clean), Brown, & Mcfadden.

I am assuming whoever Miami trades the first pick to would take mcFadden. However, I would be happy to have Miami draft Mcfadden and trade ronnie brown for picks in this years draft. Or, Miami drafts Mcfadden and then immediately trades him. Either way, works for me. In fact, trading brown before the draft might be the best idea. Let everyone know we're gonna take mcfadden. might get a better offer that way.

I hope Cam takes the job at Michigan. Then H Wayne can hire a proven coach. I hope the first round pick will be McFadden we need a strong RB . Ronnie is great as a back up. Maybe the Brown's have a QB they want to unload! LOL!

You don't dump a coach after a bad year. Shula had a few bad years. Should the dolphins have fired him? Cameron is a FIRST YEAR HEAD COACH. Give the man time to LEARN! He is a proven offensive mind. If after 3 years, he has not improved miami, then maybe its time, but not now.

this makes no sense...if you trade away your first pick, whomever you traded your pick to gets the #1 pick, not the next team in line!? Unless we trade it to the Pats, which I doubt...

first off you can't put shula & cam in the same class.second you give cam another year of going 0-16. lets face it ,cam is not head coach material.just look at the draft.this man has no idea on how to build a successful team.the first pick in this years draft should have been on the defense.why he picks a return man i will never understand.if ginn went to another team that has a good system he would be doing better than his current status.look at welker with the pats-he looks like a all pro out there.the ginn pick was a waste.cam dosent even use him enough in the offense.they all knew the d had a bunch of dinosaurs.cam & co just ignored the defense thats why we suck.last week a rookie qb throws 4 tds vs this sorry bunch of losers.wake up people-this team needs a ton of help from a proven winner.if cam is such a genius with the offense why cant they score a freakin touchdown.his offense is so predictable its scary.give me marty,give me tuna,give me someone who wants to win!!!just say no to cam!!!!

Dude, you are absolutely right, I just wasn't thinking when I typed that, hey, sometimes I can be a moron, thanks for pointing that out. What I was trying to say was, if Darren Mcfadden goes into the draft I would not want the Patriots to pick him over us because I don't want to see that guy running against us twice a year. Thanks again!!

It happens...thanks for the honesty...

I agree with you...I'm not sure the Dolphins will pick McFadden though with soooo many other needs. i wouldn't mind it, though. A trade would be great!

i don't think he will loose his job...they have been in need for years to get some high draft picks and miami was just in bad situations in the draft...so,sometimes you have to go down before you go back up..but i hope they do get one win...
