    Since Cam will be fired, I figured we might as well create a list of his lowlights or biggest blunders since taking the job to make light of the situation. I'll kick it off:

    His insistance on using SQUIB Kicks

    I don't think the squib kicks were out of line.. it was the execution that created the disaster

    how about.. ronnie brown sharing carries with chatman, and then having him return kicks.

    this is easy

    You're a lightweight. His calling for a spike with a minute left on the clock,a timeout left, and a first and goal on the nine is the obvious number one bonehead play.

    That was pretty classic. Chatman has dirty pics of Cam somewhere.

    there were a couple games earlier this year where we had the ball with a couple TOs left and over 90 seconds left on the clock while the game was close; Jets come to mind. Not only did we not get a first down, we end up letting the Jets score

    I was at that game in NY. Cam is worse than Herm Edwards with clock mgmt which is mindboglling since Herm's deficiancies in this area are legendary.

    6.Not playing or practicing Hadnot and Shelton with the first team when he knew that they'd be starters

    7.All the damn fake reverses to Ginn (never worked)

    8.Using all our TOs at the end of the game today

    9.No Hurry up offense

    10.Not trying to go for the win at the end of the game against Washington (if I remember, the skins were going down the field, but just ran out of time)

    For number one I'd have to say going for the 4th and 15 rather than attempt a 42 yard field goal in Pittsburgh. Also, we should remember that if we were decisive and didn't get a penalty, it would have been a 37 yard field goal try. The runner up should be when we had 2nd and 9 on the 39 after the two minute warning in Houston and he called two pass plays and then punted.

    Keeping Mike Mularky for the 2007 season. This might be his first worst call.

    What about in the Houston game where he forgoes the 50 yrd fg to punt then Houston drives down and kicks a 57 yarder to win.

    everything everyone said is a good reason.

    How about Trading Welker for starters. And not to somone like the 49ers, the stinkin RATS! Wheres chambers, oh yeah another great call Cam....

    DUMB PLAY CALLING was the nails in his coffin. not to mention time management. Ive been following this team for years, and ive never shouted at the TV saying WHAT THE F***?!!!

    How about 4th and 11 on the eagles 15 yard line, he goes for it when were 2 scores behind?! and we get a 6 yard loss ont he play, KICK THE FG BRAINS!

    There is so many DUMB blunders its actually hard to find the best top ten, they were all dunse.

    BYE CAM, least you dint lie to the media like saban did. You tried, You Failed. I doubt any college teams would even offer him a position after this season.

    My top Cam errors:
    1) Offensive game planning. We consistently made more yards and scored more points in the second half of games, and that's including the close ones. If Cam can make second half adjustments that net good results where was he on Monday to Saturday when he's supposed to be coming up with the offensive game plan that's good from the first snap?
    2) He spent too much time on the offensive side of the ball in the off season and pre season. I won't blame him for the defence falling off a cliff, but he and Randy should have had at least an inkling that the defence was going to start going sour.
    3) Not trading JT. I know JT's a HoFer and our best player, but you need your locker room leaders to actually lead the team, not go off in their own direction. Keeping JT eroded his authority and it looked to me that JT was a locker room distraction all season.
    4) Not finding an OC. Cam really looked overmatched in the dual role of HC and OC. If the defence had performed at 2006 levels he might have gotten away with it, but when the whole team needs attention it makes it very difficult for a rookie HC to perform both roles.
    5) Not replacing Keith Armstrong. This could be a joint Randy/Cam error, but our special teams haven't been very good since Mike Westhoff left and the writing should have been on the wall. Some of Cameron's most questionable calls have been influenced by the fact that our special teams have been a disaster area.
    6) Not utilising Lorenzo Booker earlier. OK I can inderstand that if he's a turnstile when pass blocking that that does limit his usefulness in the backfield, but you can still use him as a slot receiver whilst he learns how to block.

    Cam wasn't responsible for trades, Randy was.

    We weren't going to be able to retain welker because he was asking for too much $$$. NE could afford the luxury of overpaying a #3 WR. With NE's 2nd we were able to draft Satele, a guy that will anchor the OL for the next 10 years.

    A very good Center > a very good #3 WR

    And Chambers was an underacheiver for us. With SD's pick Miami selects.......

    Honestly, we could probably find 10 terrible timeouts/poor clock management situations much less overall.

    Handing the playcalling reigns to Mike Mularky for a few games is a big one.

    Welker would not have helped us much, the only reason he is palying well is because he has Moss and Brady on his team.

    funny how earlier in the season we have a thread called "cam nicknames" and i called him Cam-Moron and he ends up being a moron. i cant take credit for it since i seen the name on a different fins fansite.

    Not going for the FG in Pittsburgh when Feely insisted that he could make it.

    Running Club Cam in the offseason.

    Not enough discipline is another thing from his lackadaisical demeanor.
