Cam Cameron Vs. Eddie Moore

Continuing our countdown to the worst event in Miami Dolphins history, today our match-up is the one win Cam Cameron vs. the Eddie freakin” Moore.

commercial appeal.comCam Cameron was the end result of Miami Dolphins’ owner Wayne Huizengas’ extensive coaching search after the ill-timed resignation of Nick Saban.  Considered one of the bright minds in the NFL, Cameron was deemed an offensive wizard.  Leaving San Diego as an offensive Co-ordinator, Cameron became the 7th coach in Dolphins history, and the 4th HC in 3 seasons.

Cameron made no friends when it was announced that with the 9th overall pick, the Phins would pass up fan favorite Brady Quinn in favor of Ted Ginn, Jr. and his “entire family”.  If that was bad, things quickly went worse.  Cameron brought in concussed QB Trent Green (who would go on IR shortly into the season with another).  An immediate rift formed between Cameron and star DE Jason Taylor that lasted all season.  Cameron would even take a full pre-season game off to sit in the coaches box and let his assistants coach the game.

After compiling a 1-15 season with questionable clock management and game situation calls each game, Cameron ended the season with questions about his return.  Shortly after Bill Parcells was named VP of Football Operations, Cam Cameron was canned.  The 1-15 season is the worst season in Miami Dolphins history.

Sun-SentinelDuring the 1993 NFL draft the Dolphins selected Eddie “freakin” Moore with their first pick, a 2nd round selection.  With high-profile and target of then personnel man Rick Speilman Anquan Boldin on the board, Dave Wannstedt bucked Speilmans opinion and opted for the Tennessee linebacker.

Fans were once again in an uproar over the drafting of Dave Wannstedt.  Moore would play very sparingly his first season while he recovered from an injury he sustained prior to being drafted.  In 2004, Moore would still play sparingly and would not make much impact on the defense or the special teams unit. 

In 2006 during the off-season, Moore would be traded to the Saints.  Moore was unable to pass his physical and the trade was voided.  He would be released shortly there after.  Moore is now under contract with the Denver Broncos.

While the Dolphins till look for an answer at WR, Boldin is a rising star in Arizona.

Which one of these two has the “HONOR” of being eliminated?  Vote for the one that you think may have the chance at being the worst event in Dolphins history.

    This is starting to bum me out!  I knew we had some really terrible years lately but holy moly!  I voted for Cam!  I was very much a Cam supporter that had to eat crow.  Even though I’m not a Domer fan I really think that Quinn should have been our pick last year.  The one thing that Cameron did do was quickly take us to ROCK BOTTOM!  THere is really no other way to go but up from here.  I hated the Eddie Moore pick but…everyone makes a bad pick at some point.  We just seem to have a propensity of doing it more often lately. As far as total damage, Cam wins on this one!

    It seems with the Moore pick that it was an every year occurence.  Our drafts in the last 10 years have been unbelievably horrible.

    This is a no brainer for me.  While Moore was a total bust for Miami he is only one player.  Contrast that with a guy like former HC Cam CaMORON. A guy who is supposed to lead the team and make smart dicisions.  Cam was a joke at HC and the 1-15 season proves it.  Like Wannsuck, Cam was fine as a coordinator however the HC job was way over his head.  I never thought there could be a worse HC than Wanny until CaMoron.

    This is a depressing poll. But what we need to take from it is DO NOT get excited. We have all been here before. We all hated to see Don go, but who wasnt excited about JJ ? Then he bastardsized our HERO and left it to some dude that looked like super mario. We all cried when DAN left, but not long after that the SAVIOR arrived, big Nick Saban. Once again our hearts are ripped out. Then how many of use moaned when it was Ted Ginn Jr (and his family) drafted #1last year? I guess Im just saying DO NOT get excited about Bill Parcells taking over. I love this team and wear there colors proud. But this team has done nothing since Joe Robbie passed away. I just think losing comes from the top, and that hasnt changed.
