    I don't see any reason why he would turn them down. Apparently his record at Indiana University was abysmal.

    Re: OT: Dolphins offer HC job to SD assistant Cam Cameron

    This is the guy I have wanted all along. He has always had good offenses throughout his years and was responsible for Gus Frerotte's one pro bowl season (as his QB coach.) He has done a marvelous job in San Diego developing Antonio Gates, incorporating players like Michael Turner and Vincent Jackson, and getting the ball distrubuted throughout their offense.

    Nevermind his Indiana record, how could anyone succeed at that school in football? I'm thrilled we got this guy to run the offense, he should go great with Capers great defensive mind. Good day for Dolphins' fans IMO.

    Well he's probably the best option out of the remaining candidates. Despite having Ron Mexico as his QB, Jim Mora Jr. is a hothead who refused to make adjustments late in the game for whatever reason. Gailey is washed up and couldn't win with Aikman, Smith, and Irvin.

    I would LOVE for Miami to get this guy - break up the Chargers a bit while the phins O comes to prominence (without a QB), their D continues to get OLD.

    Re: OT: Dolphins offer HC job to SD assistant Cam Cameron

    Me too. This is the guy who was Marty was supposedly delegating playcalling authority to, so they wouldn't be so "Martyball-ish". He is the one who gave LT the ball 9 times in the second half. That's real smart - you have the best RB in the NFL and you are trying to protect a lead so you let the rookie (in terms of actual starts) quarterback throw the ball instead of giving it to LT.

    I love this move. It weakens the Chargers and the Fins at the same time!

    Oh give me a brake, the Pats had no place winning a game where the ball bounced their way at least five times.

    Re: OT: Dolphins offer HC job to SD assistant Cam Cameron

    Damn, I was rooting pretty hard for Chan Gailey to get the job. Nothing like a horrible coach in the division! I yearn for the days of Wade Phillips, Herm Edwards, and Dave Wannstedt.

    Holy crap, that was downright unfair! Nice to see another team get raided in the coaching ranks for a change.

    Cameron is awful as a head coach. I watched his act up close in the big Ten. He is an awful awful choice as a head guy.

    Personally, I would have looked at Kirk Ferentz before Cameron.

    Cam Cameron announced as Dolphins new Head Coach

    Got to wonder how much of Marty's success in SD was due to Cameron. Should be an interesting development for our rivals in Miami. But they still don't have a real QB.

    Oops didnt see the other thread. how do i delete this one.

    Well Phins have a coach now but still no QB. We'll see how this works out next season. Plus Chargers got weakened. So good all around stuff.

    He's got his QB of the future already in Miami... Cleo Lemon. :D

    Actually Lemon was in SD before he was traded to Miami last season so he's familiar with Cameron's offense.

    Cam Cameron is a wonderful offensive coordinator.

    But he'll be a terrible head coach. His college experience was embarrassingly bad, and he had some talent to work with. Cameron was fired with 4 years left on his original contract. He was a miserable failure as a head coach.

    He's not a leader.

    He a great Lieutenant, but not a good General.

    lol

    Dip****, have you come back whenever something good happens to your pathetic football team? You just want to come over here and claim the Fins are the next big thing with this dude as their coach.

    Re: OT: Dolphins offer HC job to SD assistant Cam Cameron


    feelthepain,

    Huizenga misses again, for your team.

    Cam is probably not a bad coach. But WH put the horse before the cart. The Miami Dolphins have a dearth of young talent and an aging roster of old stars. Products of the bad Wannstadt years of attempted patches that failed.

    What was needed was a competent talent acquiring GM. And the authority to tear down the roster for what he can get, and start reducing the talent gap, by drafting some good talent.

    That's why the Nicktator left. He came in hoping to avoiid the major surgery; when he saw he couldn't he quit. Cam will probably try ot do the same, and not face the issue.

    A total rebuild is needed, and get about it and mimimize the agony to a year or two, instead of denial and a decade of losing and mediocrity.

    AJ Smith, Scott Pioli are the kind of guy that MIAMI NEEDS. But they aren't available; there is one guy in that class that is available. Floyd Reese has just spent a couple of yearas of Herculean effort stripping a roster and rebuilding it. They turned the corner this past season. The Titans were still in the playoff hunt the last game of the year.

    Watching the live press conference on miamidolphins.com right now and Cam Cameron has already referred to himself in the third person. This guy is boring.

    Re: OT: Dolphins offer HC job to SD assistant Cam Cameron



    Why is it Pats fans think they are allowed to be the most arrogant people on the planet? I'm thrilled for you your team is winning, but how much of that success is because of the fans? None! Cam ran the number one O in the league this year and has had one of the best O's the last 4 years. He is a responsible for the development of the QB's in San Diego as anyone. Sure LT is the best back in the league, but is that Cams fault? Could be. Cam also rejoins Oline coach Hudson Houck. We also have Dom Capers who ran the 5th best D in the league last year.

    Daunte will have been out of football for almost two years and his knee should be much better when the 2007 season starts. If Cam can develop Brees and Rivers you don't think he's able to work with a guy like Daunte? We also have Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown in the backfield not exactly a shabby duo. No one in Miami is spewing SB we just know we had a lot of key injuries last year, but we were still able to play great D. If Sean Peyton and Eric Mangini can get their teams turned around in one season why can't Cam the Dolphins? It's not like turn arounds are rare.

    What are We worried about? Remember this guy is so bright He only gave the ball to LT nine times in the second half last week.He also failed miserably at Indiana as a Head Coach.This is good news for The Patriots.
