Former Dolphins head coach Cam Cameron, now the offensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens, took a break Thursday from helping last year's No. 22-ranked Ravens offense slip to No. 25 this year, just so he could
double speak about his time with the Dolphins.
He was asked what happened with the 2007 Dolphins?
"I take full responsibility for what happened there. End of story," Cameron said before going into babble mode. "Now this game's about this team and, for me personally, it's about this offense getting better. [We could be playing in Nome, Alaska, any of the other 31 teams, we got some things we got to improve on. That's our focus.]"
So what did Cameron learn from 1-15?
"Another great question," he said in typical Cam tap-dancing manner. "I don't think necessarily now ... our focus is getting those guys focused in. I really appreciate these questions. I've made it really clear where my focus is. Maybe there is a time and place for that. In our situation right now, with what we're trying to do as a team, it's about us."
So does Cam Cameron, 1-15 as an NFL head coach, want to be a head coach again? He paused for a long time today after being asked that question.
"I've always approached that," he began before pausing again, "with a sole focus of what I'm being asked to do. I'm going to do the best job I can for the Baltimore Ravens, to help the Baltimore Ravens win a championship, if not more. That is my focus. With that being said, I understand now more than ever why so many guys have left here and gone on to be head coaches -- because of the experience they're afforded here by our owner, our players, people in this organization. It prepares guys to be head coaches like no place I've been.
"So you can take that any way you want, but I'm a guy, I'm going to be learning everything that's being done here, but at the same time I know why I'm here. I've got a great friend I'm working for, and I'm going to do everything I can to help this man win a championship."
Doesn't this sound familiar?
And can you please translate for me, because I really didn't understand anything beyond, "I take full responsibility for what happened there. End of story."
