Guy Benjamin played for Stanford and was never on a Miami team that won a Super Bowl. You might be looking for George Mira (U grad and later a Dolphin) as your answer but Mira never started a game for the Dolphins in 72 or 73...the years they won the Super Bowl. Posted by: team historian | September 17, 2014 at 06:37 PM He said someone who started a game for us and won a SB on another team that Yr. in honesty I don't think it's happened? If wrong then post a trivia question that would stump the Shwab!

I remember back in 96 when Alonzo Spellmen freaked out in Chicago over the pressure of being a Bye-Sexual player. That team had a DB named Maurice Douglas who you can say was the 1st over the top guy (Who never said he was but didn't deny, wink wink) Spellmen had an open affair with another Bears player (They never disclosed who but my money was on Douglas) Were after a bad split Spellmen went ape C H I T in Chicago going to gay bars wearing a Dog Collar! Mike Singletary talked Spellmen down when it ended with a Police stand off with a gun in Alonzo's mouth. I bring this up because it was swept under the rug very quickly! Mando himself made a report about it on the Herald's Sports section (If you read Salguero shed light!) Spellemen ended up playing 2 more Yrs in Dallas later on but that was an incident I'm surprised more of you don't remember?

fin4life any more challenges? Or are you wanking or are you cakey? Posted by: 72DABEST | September 17, 2014 at 05:44 PM Bring it on but remember if we play this game response time needs to be quick! No fact checking I admit I went back and checked that one (hence the time in response) But shoot off the top of my head! Wanna play? I'm game and enjoy a challenge without getting nasty or personal! Real quick then UM MLB after Brophy before Mira?

From reading some of the feed back I guess I should just hang it up! Not perfect and really just didn't remember that game because in honesty once Schnellenberger bailed I wasn't to high on any Kick Off Classic! So it escaped me, I'm not perfect and will accept and admit when wrong!

Aug. 27, 1984 UM vs. Auburn at(E. Rutherford, N.J.)Score UM 20- Auburn 18 Highsmith ran for over 140yards!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Posted by: 72DABEST | September 17, 2014 at 05:19 PM JJ's 1st game slipped my mind! After Schnellenberger left the roof was caving for me a bit with a Coach out of the laughing stock Okla St. was in the then Big-8 Conf. Who knew what JJ would be and even that Yr. left you wondering cause I sure do remember watching the loss we took that Yr. in the Rose Bowl as defending Champs. I won't lie I had to go back and check the stats for that game but it was 20-18 and Jackson ran for a 4.8 Yd average I would hardly call it lame duck work! JJ inherited Fagen and Redshirt Fr. Jerome Brown. I grew up in the OB and was there for alot of it! (Post 72 Yr. I was born) But have caught your posts and given I was that kid in a Football Uni for games once myself I remember alot of it! Alot of love for Winslow in 81 but if you were there you know Uwe had two cracks from inside 45 and both were kicked low! Was there for the Mud Bowl, 83 Marino coming out party Vs. Buffalo along with front row seats for his 84 pilgramidge to that last game in the OB on Monday Night Vs. the Pats were we blew it in a stinker!

72DABEST, What the hell are you talking about???? Bo Jackson's Auburn Tigers never played the U!!! If you want a trip down memory lane I'm your guy everyday of the week! We played the great Mike Rozier and Nebraska but not Bo and Auburn! For a person posting about his knowledge hanging a 72 in front of his handle I've caught a ton of mistakes on your account of Historical facts! So stay on point if you want me to take what you post seriously!

Bo Jackson was famous because he played football and baseball professionally not because he was outstanding at either one. Posted by: FckFace | September 17, 2014 at 04:15 PM Your right he sucked! Going to the Pro Bowl and All Star game meant nothing?

f4l, any chance Jenkins plays ILB? I love his coverage skills and he's very active. At 6 ft, 243 he has the size ... I think he's the ILB by year end. Posted by: Mark in Toronto | September 17, 2014 at 04:19 PM His Pos. at UF but was always hurt (Reason he doesn't go higher and for my money D.Perrymen is my target Rd-2 in 205 draft if there and have said it here for sometime now) Given injuries you wonder about setting him in the Middle plugging Tackle to Tackle? However like we discussed in the last Off-SEason when talking Misi in the middle (Remember?) This is either the situational MLB on pass downs or our coverage SOLB!

But I got whipped with a belt when I was a kid. Enough to not be able to sit for a day. Wouldn't say that was abuse though, would just say it was my Dad teaching me a lesson. . Posted by: DC Dolfan | September 17, 2014 at 03:48 PM My Parents are Latin and A S S Kickings a way of life when disciplining but those welts were ugly and your forgetting about the dead son of abuse just 1 Yr. ago!

OJ's oldest son Jason killed Nicole. -He was a chef and always had his knives with him -Nicole had booked the restaurant for after recital dinner -Nicole changed plans and never told him -The time of death matches when he got off work -The day after the murder OJ retained counsel for Jason and so the POLICE NEVER QUESTIONED him.

THE FACTS ON BO JACKSON AS AN NFL PLAYER!!!! http://www.nfl.com/player/bojackson/2517329/careerstats BO JACKSON BARELY GAINED OVER 2500YDS IN 4 SEASONS AS A PRO!!!! AND EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER KNOWS IF BARRY WOULD HAVE PLAYED BEHIND THE DALLAS LINE HE WOULD HAVE EASILY PASSED 2800YDS IN A SEASON!! Posted by: Dashi | September 17, 2014 at 04:02 PM All good but your talking about a guy who went from the K.C. Royals to an NFL game in less than a week's time every Yr. Bo was NEVER in Football shape and just look at this replay Bo Jackson- 91 Yard Touchdown Run against the Seattle Seahawks youtube.com A 6'2"/235 Pd man running a sub 4.2 past Kenny Easly one of the best and fastest Safety's of his day you never heard of because he played with the Zorn/Krieg Seahwaks. Later youtube him in that his 1st NFL game runing over Bozworth at the line and carrying that fake into the endzone! Had Bo committed he owns the record books! Barry was INCREDIBLE but he wasn't this physical freak who was also by the way throwing out runners in MLB from the warning track at the wall to the plate go youtube that when he does it to the great Harold Rollins! If you count getting into any semblance of actual NFL shape Bo counted for the last 6 games of every Yr.! You said it yourself before you didn't see these guys play! It ain't any man crush it's facts! The Juice in particular off that list couldn't carry Bo's Jock! I LOVED Simpson growing up and NEVER bring his life issues into the convo! Just call it like I see it given I actully did seethe Juice as a kid in the OB! There all great runners and all would have left Emmitt's numbers in the dust! I was a little harsh in that regard with your list (I believe if in that 90 draft Shula takes Emmitt instead of Sammie and JJ takes Sammie THERE LIVES and NFL History's are written very differently) On that note I apoliogize Bro but, MY MAN! YOU DIDN'T SEE BO PLAY!! And I know you know numbers don't tell the whole story here!

Mark, I agree about Landry. Even though I think he's the truth (eventually), I didn't want him to overtake Gibson's snaps (especially if he can't produce the way Gibson showed he could last year). I think that's the OC not knowing what he has in Gibson (and maybe Philbin isn't giving him enough info that Gibson was a great asset last year). Posted by: DC Dolfan | September 17, 2014 at 03:01 PM I think in this regard your both missing the Big picture! When we drafted Landry I posted during Camp I thought Gibson was on the Hot seat given Matthews and Landry can both play the Slot. I also thought WR Williams had a real shot because of this. Some of you post about Big Ben and bring up CAP ramifications ect.... 1st off the Steelers will FRANCHISE him and "IF" he ever plays somewhere else it will be in a sign and trade. That aside the Dolphins will IMO have a TON of CAP space in 2015 when they purge the Ireland guys off the roster. In 2015 Ellerbe (9.5 Mil) He's gone (Replaced in coming draft or FA) Wheeler ( 6 Mil) He's gone (J.Jenkins can play SOLB while McCain maybe the answer at Phil's WOLB Spot both cheaper replacements and Misi better look out given his guaranteed cash is also up and letting him go won't cost much!) Gibson ( 6 Mil) He's gone (The much cheaper Matthews and Landry are replacing) Add the 12 Mil we have right now and the team with these moves are 33.5 Mil under in 2015 without significant effect to the present roster! The handling of Gibson is about the future with Landry more than what he can do for the team. I would have featured and tried to trade for something but I'm not Hickey. They know exactly what Gibson is and had Tannehill hit him wide open to start the 2nd half on Sunday it might have been 14-16 after the Spiller Kick Off return but with D coming unglued it didn't make a bit of difference! However we'll never know because Tannehill missed him wide open inside the 5 without a Defender around!

in the past year we've seen more outcry on "moral situations" than we have in the history of this nation combined. Talk about having to watch (literally) everything you say and everything you do. Posted by: MiamiD20 | September 17, 2014 at 02:37 PM Nicely said! I'd like the PC Police to stay the HELL out of my Home as well! That said am shocked at the pics that were released of the injuries AP put on his Kid. Add the fact he had another Kid killed by that ones Mother's BF just last Yr. were he showed rather great indifference (He didn't bother going to N.Dakota were the killing took place and casually sent a check to cover the funeral while playing that very Sunday) today I wonder about him as a Human Being in all honesty!

YG, what about Green Bay before Favre? NY Jets .... ALWAYS.... NE Patriots before Brady and BB Pittsburgh in the 80s was horrid. Posted by: Mark in Toronto | September 17, 2014 at 02:26 PM You forgot about the team we just played in Buffalo! I can't recall ever seeing that Stadium empty! Going back to when we beat them 20 in a row when I was a kid!

In this case, Marvin lewis record has no bearing, as he at least went to the playoffs, and did so despite having a worse owner than Ross. Posted by: IMAWriter | September 17, 2014 at 01:54 PM Lewis went to a team that had been a prennial laughing stock for over a decade with such greats as Akili Smith at QB! Even though his career a flop who will ever forget the absolute look of DISAPOINTMENT on the face of Peter Warrick in the 96 draft when they took him! (A real priceless moment from an honest reaction stand point in the N.Y. draft Green Room) He gets Carson Palmer (A great QB can make a BAD team look good i.e. Dan Marino!) Then in 05 Playoffs Vs. eventual Champs at home (Steelers and SB XL) DT Keeno Von Offelman cheap shotted Palmer nearly ending his career! Palmer never really recovered and until (QB Whisperer) Arians got him wouldn't step into passes were the inside Blitz caused him to throw a ton of picks! In that time however they'd have a good Yr. then flop the next and vice versa! They picked up guys nobody wanted (Including some of you here when I screamed sign Vontez Burfict after he went undrafted!) While some Yrs. tough there was always something you could hang your hat on about the Bengals. Not the case with Miami which to this day post JJ in 99 is a team whose never really had an identity to speak of!

Basically, the "Ron Wolfe qb Model" works great when you have had qb's like Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers in succession. Lets not get ahead ourselves here. :-) Posted by: Still/Wade/County | September 17, 2014 at 01:30 PM Wolf copied Bill Walsh's way having watched closely many Yrs. with the Raiders before heading to G.B. At one point the 49ers had Montana, S.Young and S.Bonoas there Top-3 QB's. Some real fans might remember Bono from his days in K.C. after being traded there for a 3rd Rd'er back in the day.

Now, you tell me: Did Reid suddenly take a 'stupid pill' and go from genius to idiot overnight? Did he suddenly forget how to coach? Or maybe--just maybe--did Kansas City just play over their heads and sneak up on some people whole still having fundamental talent issues that will take some time to address? Posted by: stuff you don't want to admit | September 17, 2014 at 01:07 PM The BRASS in K.C. made some judgement calls along the OL that has come back to bite them! A.Reid is in the middle of a throw away Season were there best bet is playing spoiler in Dec.! We all know about B.Albert being replaced by #1 overall pick Fisher and so far he's been a turnstile at LT (Was not good last Yr. at RT and could be a BUST!) They also inexplicably allowed RG J.Asamoah to walk for peanuts and replaced with a 6th Rd Rookie out of Tenn. named Z.Fulton (We've had our fill of Tenn. Guard play as well!) There are NO LANES for Jammal Charles and letting his Back up or 1-B McCluster leave to the Titans is also hurting them. On D they lost All World MLB D.Johnson for the Yr. while letting the other MLB in there 3/4 Akeem Jordan leave for Philly. They also lost 3/4 DL Plugger Mike DeVito to injury (Both he and Johnson tore achilles) while losing Tyson Jackson in FA. They let CB B.Flowers walk over money (Easily the DUMBEST move by any team this past Off-Season) Who I've seen in both of his Chargers games and is BALLIN LIGHTS OUT as one of the best additions any team made! This is a game we should be able to win in the trenches on both sides and one we better run in because the Middle of the Chiefs D in the backfield is were they're tough. We face an under manned front with a couple of MLB's out of Nevada! There is also a chance S.S. Eric Berry is out this week. If Tannehill doesn't put up good numbers and we lose the talk about sitting him could be deafening before they leave to London and God forbid should he struggle and lose that game to the lowly Raiders!

You are all bringing up a valid point...at what point do you sit Tannehill? I'm sure Lazor/Philbin have a formula they'll never share, but if we go say 1-5 or 1-7, and his confidence is shattered... do you repeat 2011 and let Moore ruin our chances of getting a franchise QB? Posted by: NHFinsFan | September 17, 2014 at 09:14 AM If the Dolphins find themselves 1-3 headed into the Bye Tannehill will be sacked by his Coach! If this ends in a 7-9 Yr. Philbin won't be back and maybe done as a Coach of any kind in the NFL. The only position he really held was as an OL Coach given in G.B. he ran the teams O thru practice drills given H.C. McCArthy called the plays..... If it were your livelyhood on the line you'd do what you could and that coud mean the end for Ryan if we go to London and lose to a BAD Raiders team after getting beat by a MEDIOCRE K.C. team this Sunday!

Congrats on the nomination Zach, but no way he beats out Seau amongst the linebackers. Then I hate to say it but there are at least 6-10 other names that deserve a little more than Zach. Posted by: Still/Wade/County | September 16, 2014 at 10:17 PM I agree what about Doug Betters and AJ Duhe?

Barry Sanders is the best RB of all time!! Bo was a flash in the pan. To short of a career to be considered all-time great. Even E.Smith is higher than Bo on the All time scale. The way I see it 1- B.Sanders 2- J.Brown 3- W.Payton 4- E.Dickerson 5- OJ Yes, you can hate OJ as a man, which he didn't do it. The Mexican Mob did because Goldman owed them more than $100k in dope. But you can't hate the man running the football!! He was a mix or Dickerson and Payton. OJ was a supreme athlete and even better RB. Never watched him play live. But have seen enough game film of him to know that what he did on the football field only a select few can do. And with his size and speed, I have only seen 3 people that compare, J.Brown, Dickerson, and A.Peterson. Posted by: The Real Real Dashi | September 16, 2014 at 12:1 This is maybe the dumbest post you've ever put up! I was busy today and just caught this! If running behind the Dallas Cowboys OL of the 90's Bo Jackson (Had he committed to Football) Breaks the League record hands down and goes for close to 2,500 Yds!! He was the most incredible combo of size/power in the history of the game. Forget the game the man was the best athlete I ever saw! Youtube his 1st NFL game on Monday Night (No Camp straight BALLIN!) Vs. Seattle coming off a Baseball Diamond with no prep for an NFL game and watch the GREATEST ATHLETE in the History of Sports! Barry was good but he couldn't carry Bo's Jock! If Bo doesn't get hurt in 91 there isn't eve a convo!

I can't agree with the notion that Ross is cheap. He is one of the top 50 richest men in the world - I don't think a couple million would burn even the slightest hole in his pocket. I have to think that's on the GMs and coaches more than Ross. Posted by: MiamiD20 | September 16, 2014 at 11:05 AM In 2010 & 11 the Miami Dolphins were one of only 2 NFL teams to either lose money or break even (The Lions the other) I understand Mr. Ross needs 12 Mil a Yr. the way we may need a 20 spot in our pockets but when considering the dwindeling Season tix sales and the amount of tix he buys from week to week (To lift blackouts) I think he may keep this portion (the 10% Owners can pocket) to cover some of these holes. While a Billionaire I don't believe he's in the habbit of taking losses annually.

Truth - I think Jim Brown, Gale Sayers, Barry Sanders & OJ would have something to say about that statement. Posted by: NHFinsFan | September 16, 2014 at 10:55 AM If this by any chance is regarding the Bo Jackson comment let me just add that Bo came to play Half a Season after the Baseball Season in ZERO Football shape and had he committed to the game and not suffered a terrible hip fracture just 4 (Half Seasons in) He would have destroyed the NFL! Bo Jackson behind the Cowboys OL of the early 90's (If strictly playing Football) probably threatens 2,500 Rushing Yds in a Season and I'm not exaggerating! ESPN's Top-100 athlete's of the 20th Century should have been Top athlete in his Profession if Jordan was #1 because in my book the GREATEST ATHLETE of the 20th Century was Bo (Because Bo Knows Football!) Followed by the other 2 Sport athlete who also dominated his Position at Football while a great Centerfielder and lead off hitter in Deion Sanders!
