1. The running backs: After Cam Cameron's comment of last weekend, when he basically suggested there was a competition for the starting halfback job, we're very curious to see how Ronnie Brown will respond. As we've mentioned before, though, Brown is coming off a very impressive performance against Kansas City. As interesting will be seeing whether Cameron would have Jesse Chatman in the starting lineup against the Bucs.
2. Lorenzo Booker: The third-round pick drew a lot of praise early in camp for his quickness out of the backfield, but he has been invisible in the preseason. It's time to see what he can do.
3. Ted Ginn Jr.: Like Booker, it's time to see what this guy can do. We'd like to see him return both punts and kickoffs in this game, although there has been no word coming from Cameron on that subject.
5. Jason Allen: The truth is the Dolphins appear to have very few issues on defense, but we'd still like to see Allen improve to the point where he could actually be counted on if he was given extended playing time.
6. Brandon Fields: The rookie punter was outstanding against Jacksonville, but then really struggled against Kansas City. Punting is all about consistency, so we want to see him be solid from start to finish against Tampa Bay.
7. No injuries: Third game or not, the preseason is still the preseason, and it truly means little. The biggest objective for us, as always, is coming out of the game with no injuries to significant players.
