Keenan McCardell Wasn't Liked in San Diego

According to a story by CBS Sportsline's Pete Prisco, Cam Cameron didn't like McCardell.

I spent many a game, wondering why they weren't throwing the ball to McCardell. He reminds me of a great possession receiver. He plays like the Jerry Rices and Tim Browns of the game. It's third and 10, and these are the guys you throw the ball to. They know how to get open, they know how to catch the ball, hang on to it, and get the yards they need.

McCardell said "I bit my tongue. I've never really talked about it, but it was a bad situation. It was just a difference in philosophy with a coach. To be honest, I think it cost us a chance to go to the Super Bowl. It was our Super Bowl. That never should have happened."

I wouldn't go that far as to say not getting him the ball cost them the game they got spanked in, but I think the games they lost through out the season, may have been different if McCardell was involved.

Should Miami Dolphins receivers be worried? No, I think they have enough to worry about, like who is going to throw them the ball.

I wondered what was going on with McCardell. He's always been a quality receiver and with a team that didn't have any, I wondered why not McCardell. Oh well, thanks for the info.
