Updates:

* Jesse Chatman is officially the #2 RB behind Ronnie Brown beating out rookie RB Lorenzo Booker. His consistent performance level along with a lack of touches by Booker, Chatman has guaranteed himself a roster spot and also a.ssuring the release of RB Patrick Cobbs. Although Cobbs may sign a practice squad contract, his departure is imminent.

* Cleo Lemon is frustrated over being the team's #2 QB. He's being professional about it and making sure he's ready for anything during the season, but it's well known around the Dolphins camp that his frustration is there.

* LB Zach Thomas, NT Keith Traylor, and LB/DE Jason Taylor will all be starting the 3rd pre-season game vs. the TB Bucs. They sat out the 1st two pre-season games to avoid injury and to remain in shape come week 1, but Coach Cameron will have the starters play for at least 2 serieses before being benched. This makes sense seeing the 1st string defense hasn't had a chance to compete before the regular season.

* CB Will Allen is being worked at WR in 5 WR sets. It's primarily an experiment on Cameron's part, but with Cameron's approach towards speed on offense, Will Allen and Ted Ginn certainly fit the bill. Will this actually happen during regular season?? only time will tell.....

* Joey Porter's expected return to the field is the 1st week of regular season play vs. the Redskins. Even though he a.ssured the media his progress is ahead of schedule, it's already documented that Porter is engaged in full-time therapy and rehab on his surgically repaired knee. Athrscropic knee scopes are common and generally over come within 5 weeks, but Porter refuses to rush himself into playing mode before he's 110% healthy.

* Dolphins are having great competition at the DT/NT positions. Paul Soliai and Rodrique Wright are having solid pre-season performances and are both battling for a roster spot. Look for both to have extensive playing time vs. the Bucs. Wright has already managed 1 sack and 3 tackles. Soliai with the same.

* The final 5th WR spot is positioned down to Az-Hakim and Kerry Reed. Hakim has the overall advantage with his speed and veterancy, however Reed has developed a Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison like relationship with QB John Beck. Could get interesting here.

I'll keep you updated when I can...

So do you really see the Dolphins doing much this year, and what week will Cleo Lemon take the starting role at QB, cause I know you can't possibly have faith in Trent Green?

Ginn making strides to become primary receiver
He is not even the second-team kick returner now, so Ted Ginn Jr., may be something of a preseason disappointment if you singularly expect him to be the Dolphins return specialist extraordinaire, the second coming of Devin Hester in aqua and orange.

But a funny thing may be happening to Miami's first-round draft pick en route to special team duties: He's becoming a pretty good wide receiver.

So the same Miami coaching staff that lowered expectations about Ginn at the start of training camp, saying he would be broken in as a specialist while letting him grow slowly as a receiver, is now fast-tracking Ginn with the offense.

And so before this season is done, well before Ginn reaches his 23rd birthday, the Dolphins might have a new, startlingly fast, remarkably prodigious No. 1 receiver on their roster.

That time is not yet, of course.

Veterans Chris Chambers and Marty Booker are still Miami's starting receiver tandem and the Dolphins don't expect that will change before the regular-season opener at Washington on Sept. 9.

But you could see glimpses of a future that features Ginn on Saturday night when the Dolphins' most impressive drive of the night, indeed, the most impressive drive of the exhibition season, highlighted Ginn as one of Trent Green's primary targets.

When the Dolphins faced a third down on their own 43-yard line, Green didn't look for Chambers, and he didn't throw to Booker. The ball and the completion went to Ginn for 11 yards.

First down.

Only moments later, on a crucial fourth-down play from the Tampa Bay 38-yard line, the Dolphins needed 3 yards to extend the drive. Ginn caught a 4-yard pass.

First down.

The rookie did this with the first-team offense. He did this with Chambers on the sideline, standing next to the coach, helmet on head, eager to return to the game.

''We're trying to get Ted more and more involved,'' Green said. ``We're trying to figure out how he fits in the offense and how we can use him as a weapon.''

It is a modest start, no doubt about that. But it is a hopeful beginning and a sure sign that bigger, better things loom.

Those things are not necessarily obvious in watching one preseason game while cuddled up to beverages not sold to minors. But coaches have been watching Ginn improve exponentially as a receiver for the past 10 days of practice.

He has made a frequent victim of former first-round pick Jason Allen, with practice touchdown receptions that would be in the 50-yard-plus range were they made in real games. Ginn has also proved to be a dangerous weapon on end-around plays and receiver screens.

Those practice accomplishments already have caused the coaching staff to promote Ginn ahead of second-year veteran Derek Hagan. Understand that Hagan was Miami's most productive wide receiver entering Saturday night's game, having caught four passes for 51 yards before he added a 31-yard touchdown grab during the game.

But Ginn's practice success is trumping those preseason statistics.

And he is doing all this without the full benefit of his most obvious gift -- his speed.

Ginn is slowed these days by a little-known quadriceps injury that isn't enough to keep him from playing, but is enough to keep him from hitting warp speed.

And, yet, without his fifth gear or any reputable NFL credentials, Ginn already is a factor even when he doesn't catch the football. So far the Dolphins have only shown the fake on the end around and already defenders are trailing Ginn on the play.

When he lines up outside, cornerbacks back up a step, unwilling to let a fast rookie embarrass them with one snap of the ball and blink of an eye.

''His speed will make people defend us differently,'' Dolphins general manager Randy Mueller said in an on-air interview during Saturday's broadcast.

Mueller was doing what personnel men regularly do, projecting what is likely to happen in the future.

The good news for the Dolphins is that future with Ginn as a fine receiver might come sooner than everyone expected.

Trent Green led the starting offense to two easy TD's last game...
Cleo Lemon looked average...
John Beck >>> then any QB in the game...

Yes I have plenty of faith in Trent Green if the offensive line gives him deicent time to throw...

Miami will be slept on this year and I love it....

1st off, let's discuss the game highlights...

* Trent Green's interception wasn't his fault...Samson Satele left his block and ran left to block the only remaining defender...Cato June beat him to the punch and literally took the ball out of Ronnie Brown's hands....simple rookie mistake and great heads up by June.

* Trent Green is our starting QB. Like him or not, he's only gotten better each game. He led the Dolphins to two easy TD's. When the line gabe him time, he was dead on and moved the ball well with Ronnie Brown and Jesse Chatman. I'm glad he's starting...

* FB Cory Schlesinger is scaring me. I loved his intensity out of Detroit, but I haven't seen any of it since the start of preseason. Ronnie Brown's 1st run was horrible because Cory missed such a key block....he literally dropped the ball on this one. Ragan Mauia is looking more promising every time as far as being the starter.

* Ted Ginn is emerging in preseason as the starting 3rd WR. I'm not sure whether or not Derek Hagan or Ted Ginn's depth number is even going to matter, they're both going to get significant playing time. Not to mention he didn't run back one special teams play last night..........


* Don't expect any of this preseason to be Cameron's style of offense play calling. He's making sure the RB's can handle the bulk of the loads if they have to and he's making Ronnie Brown into a Steven Jackson type RB. So all of you fantasy football players should consider him a sleeper....

* I'm concerned with our punting and kickoffs... Jay Feely boomed one kick into the -7 (Endzone) but besides that one, he wasn't getting it past the 6 or 7 every time... I'd like to see our Punter once or twice on kickoffs to see if it makes a difference......
ANYBODY ELSE MISSING MARE'S LEG STRENGTH???

* JT believes the Dolphins can win 9 games at least if the offensive line plays well. In his press conference he announced this...

Thats all for now..the Dolphins will be cutting 8 players by Thursday. I'll keep you updated.

Chatman is the #2 back going into the season no doubt. He's looked great and I believed scored 3 or 4 tds since the beginning of preseason.

* WR Chris Chambers is rumored to be on the trading block.... shocking I know.. but I'd take a Terry Glenn over Chambers any day...just my opinion...

* Ronnie Brown and Jesse Chatman will NOT play @ NO in the 4th pre-season game. They're both secured on the depth charts and Patrick Cobbs and Lorenzo Booker will both compete for the 3rd rb slot. Either way with Ray Perkins being released whoever doesnt get the #3 slot will be on practice squad.

* Dolphins signed former Jaguars LB Jorge Cordova. I don't know much about him honestly and the contract details aren't available. Probably just depth or trial basis material. I do know that he's a pass rush specialist.

* Apparently there is RB competition for the #1 slot??? So many sources and papers are reporting that Coach Cam Cameron will anounce monday the starter at RB come week 1. Chatman and Brown apparently are competing... I honestly am shocked by this now....

* Cory Schlesinger is expected to be cut. The next Kevin Barlow anybody?? great news for the rookie FB out of Hawaii, Raegan Mauia.

* CB Andre Goodman is behind schedule on his return. Michael Lehan and Jason Allen are expected to replace him in the mean time. Goodman isn't expected back until week 3....


* QB Cleo Lemon and QB John Beck will play 45% and 50% of the 4th preseason game. Gabriel Hamdan is expected to play a little bit of the 4th quarter. Yay??

a punt returner with the #9 pick?
your franchise running back returning kicks?
your franchise running back potentially not starting?
your best/most proven receiver potentially getting cut or traded?

*NO Starters will be playing today's game. Cameron announced this today in his Press Conference.

* John Beck might be used as the starting QB for tonight instead of Cleo Lemon and Beck WILL play at least 60% of the game.

*Offensive line might be the only starters to play. In contrast to Cameron's previous announcement, Samson Satele and Chris Lewinksi are slated to start the game.


*LB Akbar Gabaja-Biamila has been promoted from backup LB to backup DE behind Jason Taylor. His performance in preseason has earned himself the official backup DE.

* Dolphins are in negotiations with former Ravens guard Keydrick Vincent. He would probably replace Chris Lewinksi and compete for the starting LG spot. He would be an upgrade believe it or not.

* Dolphins are also eye-balling the 5th WR battle in NE's camp between Kelly Washington and Reche Caldwell. Do expect Miami to persue one of them possibly.

Dolphins season preview
By Rich Cimini | Special to NFL.com

Vic Carucci's take

With a new coach and quarterback, the Dolphins enter what figures to be another difficult season.
Cam Cameron brings plenty of offensive expertise to his first head-coaching position in the NFL, but he probably doesn't have enough talent to make it count for a much this year.

Trent Green offers a great deal of experience and familiarity with Cameron's scheme, but after a concussion-shortened 2006 season his health is a concern. So is his protection from a shaky offensive line. The pressure will be on Ronnie Brown and an aging defense to pick up the slack.

[pic - click to view]


Projected record: 5-11


The Dolphins have a win-now defense. Unfortunately for them, they have an uh-oh offense.

New coach Cam Cameron is a proven play caller, but the former San Diego Chargers coordinator doesn't have LaDainian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates to make his creative scheme come to life. Cameron has a retread quarterback (Trent Green), an underachieving running back (Ronnie Brown) and one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL. No wonder Nick Saban jumped ship.

For the Dolphins to be competitive, they have to be a low-mistake team that wins with defense, week after week. With DE Jason Taylor, LB Zach Thomas and OLB Joey Porter, the former Pittsburgh Steeler, the Miami defense has the ability to win games.

Taylor, the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, is a one-man wrecking crew. He should have another big year, especially if Porter (pre-season knee surgery) is healthy. If Porter can be the Porter of old, teams won't be able to focus their protection schemes on Taylor.

The key to the season is Green, who got a late start in Cameron's system because he wasn't traded until June. When he's right, Green is an efficient, low-mistake quarterback, but he missed most of last season with a major concussion. That will be an ongoing concern. If he gets hurt, or slumps, Cameron can turn to Cleo Lemon, who enjoyed a fantastic training camp and pushed Green for the starting job.

An easy schedule in September and October should keep Miami in the race for a while.

Three key games:
Sept. 9 at Washington: The Cam Cameron era opens on the road. New coach, new quarterback. Ah, the anticipation.

Sept. 23 at N.Y. Jets: The Dolphins have dropped five of six to their bitter rivals. That can't be sitting well with them.

Oct. 14 at Cleveland: Fish management was booed on draft day for passing on QB Brady Quinn. If Quinn is starting for the Browns, this becomes a must-win for Cameron & Co.

The Dolphins will be better than you think if ...
The offensive line, a bunch of no-names, comes together better than anticipated. Don't hold your breath.

The Dolphins will be worse than you think if ...
The defense starts to act its age. Jason Taylor is 33, Zach Thomas is 34, Vonnie Holliday is 31, Keith Traylor is 38 well, you get the idea.

There has been a report of a rogue rumor, supposedly from WQAM, that Cam Cameron will step down as head coach of the Fins tonight...

...for one game.

Supposedly, Dom Capers will act as the Head Coach, while Mike Mularkey acts as the Offensive Coordinator.

The move is designed to prepare the staff for any possibility during the season where for whatever reason, Cameron cannot coach the game due to emergency.

Cam will prowl the sidelines, but Capers will be acting Head Coach and Mularkey acting Offensive Coordinator.

I'm intrigued by this, and extremely intrigued by Cameron's coachin decisions lately.

Our team looks fine...

This is Cameron's decision to have them coach for this game...
He's preparing for the future incase anything were to happen...

Where do you get off saying we're not looking good? And the redskins? Right....
