The Miami Dolphins competed in the National Football League (NFL) for the 38th time during the 2007 season. Overall, the team competed in the NFL for the 42nd time in its history.
The Dolphins were unable to improve upon their record of 6–10 in 2006 and ended up with a record of 1–15. Since the team’s lone victory came against the Baltimore Ravens on December 16, in the third to last game of the season, they narrowly escaped being the first team to finish with a final record of 0–16.
The next season, the Detroit Lions became the first team to go 0–16. Cam Cameron was hired as the new head coach of the Dolphins when Nick Saban, the team’s previous head coach, abruptly quit to take over the same position at the University of Alabama.
Cameron only led the Dolphins for one season. Additionally, it was the third and final season that Randy Mueller served as general manager of the team. After the season, both Cameron and Mueller were given their walking papers.
