    I am willing to bet $500.00 to all takers that CAM will NOT be fired and still have a job at midnight tonight... And that is Eastern/NY time.

    Any takers?

    I can't believe that you think that this guy is not the best option out there for us!!! Who else is going to replace him without the same problems that he had when he took over this team? And by replacing him, it only sets us back yet another year...

    I also think that CAM will be our HC next year... But the bet stands that CAM is still HC by midnight tonight, EST...

    EDIT: I am also willing to be everyone that thinks CAM will NOT be our HC next year... And on that bet, I am willing to $5.00 against those that think he is gone...

    The "sources" thus far haven't been credible. A random British news site? Please.

    Someone brought up PFT, PFT didn't report Cameron was to be fired.. they reported that a tipster told them Cameron would be fired today, the same person who said Ireland would have been hired. Sounds to me like some Joe Schmo told them that, when everyone around here knew Ireland would be hired today.

    i like Cam, but he doesnt show any enthusiasm (except when we won). but if we make a bad play, get a bad penalty called on us, a TD against us, etc....u seem him with a blank look on his face.

    as much as people hated Saban, at least he had a personality.

    This team was one SHANKED field goal away from 0-16.
    Cameron looked lost all season long, and he did not correct the basic game / clock management issues that plagued this team all season. Cameron seems like a nice guy, but I think his bust will be placed right next to Rich Kotitie as one of the worst coaches in league history

    Damn straight! There is a impatient contingency that just wants to repeat the same damn process every season. Why this is so totally escapes me.

    I hope you are right bro. Cam needs to stay!

    So take the immediate bet of him being done tonight, or the bet that he is our HC next year...

    You are still pushing the "stability is the only key to success" argument with this.

    It's not, it's clearly not.

    I've said if the Tuna decides to keep him then there's a vote of confidence.
    Many on both sides seemed to carry that flag until now.

    If Parcells dosen't like what he sees then why would you still think Cameron is the best option out there for us?

    I would never bet a fellow Dolphin fan over something like this. While we all may disagree about the method in doing so, I know we all share the same dreams- The Lombardi trophy in Miami once again. I don't think Cameron will ever be the man to bring that to us, and you apparently think he can one day... At the end of the day we have to entrust Parcells to make the right decision.

    I just think firing Cam is the surest way to see Beck fail to progress as a quarterback. I really have had enough of the god damn impatient fans around here.

    So one season under Cam, then a change would be a loss in stability, after we have just changed our VP of FO and our GM.....common?!?!?!?

    Well I figure that everyone that KNOWS that CAM will be fired would take this bet... Too many people out here preach about what they THINK they know, very few are willing to back up their arguments when their word is challenged based on reading the papers and forums...

    I am just trying to make sure that they REALLY KNOW what they are talking about!!!:clap:

    If Beck is the answer, tell me why he couldn't succeed in any situation? Only one year under Cam, a great QB does not make. Beck wasn't in Cam's system at BYU and he was successful. I think having better personel would make for just as much success as having Cam around.

    lol, okay....:confused2: if you read around the forum, you will see many reasoned posts as to why he should or should not stay, with no "inside" info or in-the-KNOWledge.

    Granted... But how much do you believe in your assessment of CAM and the team? And how committed are you in backing up your thoughts and assessments?

    I think Cam is in way over his head. I think he is a nice, decent person, but not a leader. I think he didn't trust the right players or use good clock management in many games. If he is retained, I, of course, will support him. I believe that after eight games seeing him LIVE that I'd prefer not to see the deer-in-the-headlights look. I do respect how he handled the press and didn't make excuses. I do realize that change is good, yet constant change is chaotic. I think this is a time for a change, as his lackluster appeal and playcalling did nothing for me as a season ticket holder to see hope for positive continuity.

    thank you! I was upstairs at Wembley, and no one knew it in my section. Not many knew much about American football, but they were sports fans who cheered good plays by either team. I had a great time.

    I actually think CAM had TOO MANY responsibilities... And with the structure being put in place now, he will succeed as a HC...

    The QB maybe? I mean isn't that part of his job?

    Really... I think that there are several things that have had an impact in CAM's 1st year....

    1. Defense was supposed to be ready to go
    2. Offense was set up to support the run. which it did throughout most of the season
    3. No one forseen the injuries that would put 14 starters on the bench.
    4. As far as coaching goes, too many duties were assigned to a 1st year HC and that is not CAM's fault, but Wayne's...
    5. IF there is 1 thing that Bill has learned over the years, it is making the best of what is given to you...
    6. The above fact will make CAM, and every other coach under his control, a better person.
    7. Bill was always put into a position of where he HAD to accept what was given to him and make it work... This is why I think tha CAM will get another shot this year...

    Just some insight...

    Bro it is Cam's fault. He was the one that decided he was going to be his own OC/HC not Wayne's.

    Let's fire Cam and hire some poor bum that will do just as bad. Then next year we can call for his head and beg for Cohwer. I'm sure lots of candidates will jump at the chance. Nothing instills confidence and stability than changing coaches every year.

    He needed to implement his system, you know if you hire an OC your first year, they're probably not going to want to do things your way, they're going to want to do it theirs. Cameron probably had someone already on the staff in mind that he was going to groom. Just my guess...
