    I guess the obvious reply thread to the least favorite thread. Probably been done before, hopefully not too recently. I'm sure for a lot of you the obvious answer is Dan. My all time favorite however is **** Anderson.

    Dan isn't just my favorite player of all time, I actually love him more than some of my relatives.

    1. Griese hasn't played a down with the Fins yet. How can he be on that list.
      ;)

      Just joking, I know you were talking about Bob. (I have to write this because some will call me dumb or something like that if I don't say it was a joke)

      For me it's Dan. Nobody is even near him. Thomas, McDuffie, Madison, Taylor are next. I liked Byars.

      Williams will be on that list but his history with the Fins is too recent to determine where I put him.

    Just too, too many.

    In no particular order:

    Griese, Csonka, Dan - would probably vie for the top with me.

    I've never seen them play but I liked Duper & Clayton in TECMO Super Bowl, the best football game ever.

    It would have to be Danny.....not just for his play on the field but for his contributions off the field.

    I was a huge O.J. McDuffie fan and I was sorry when his Dolphin days were over.....he was so clutch on third down, and does anyone remember the 1998 season when he LED the AFC in catches and DIDN'T make the Pro Bowl?? I was SO mad!!

    I think Ricky is pretty high on my list right now too, but he needs to be around a while longer.....

    Dan Marino with no question.. but since thats a given

    Ricky Williams- love the attitude and the work ethic. he said if he has to have 500 touches to get this team to win the SB then he doesn't care if it takes a year or two off his career. how do you not love a guy like that?

    Zack/JT- both awesome warriors on that field.

    i tend to favor the newer fish because we're in this time era... but i love the old guys like McDuff, Duper, Clayton, Byars, Parmalee, Fryer, Czonka, Griese, the killer B's, no name D, etc... i love all the phins really.except keith jackson... i will always hate him. he was the duper/clayton killer.

    danny and the others are the obvious picks. i, for some reason, always rooted for the not-so-bright stars of the team.

    2. Higgs
    3. Parmalee
    4. Logan

    3. Jenson
    4. Parmelee
    5. Scott / Zach Thomas

    I couldn't pick Czonka because he bolted from the team. (No Loyalty to the Don)

    ROFLMAO! I suspect there are more than a few of you who feel this way. That would explain why everyone was so nutso when I said that he "totally sucks" back in 1999. You would have thought I flipped off the Pope.

    My favorite Dolphin will always be #22....No, not Shawn Wooden....But EUGENE MERCURY MORRIS!

    Had he been used as the feature back, (and if he could have conquered those snorting demons) he would be in the HOF right now. Other than Ricky, hes the most talented back Miami ever had. One of the most talented players at any position. He was an incredible football player.

    LOL....

    Did I read a quote where Zach Thomas said hes "tired of being good"?

    Thats exactly what HE is. Above avg/Good. Hes not great. Hes not special. Hes not Super....and there will be no SB while he is starting MLB for this team.

    He disappears in big games (road games in December, Jets games for most of his career). I love how he's always blowing gaskets in the locker room AFTER a loss.

    Hes no Ray Lewis, thats for sure..but then no is one Ray Lewis. I don't even think Zach is John Offerdahl.

    But, he'll make a spectacular play now and then....That, coupled with the fact that he makes alot of tackles (even tho many are downfield ten yards) and because hes small and overachieves, he gets alot of notoriety. But when it is all said and done.........He will be an average player who played on average teams his whole career.

    And thats what he is...and thats the brutal truth.

    I am the only one thats got love for O.J? McDuffie was Mr.3rd down and was Marino's go-to guy through the 90's. He wasn't the fastest guy but he would catch everything thrown to him.
    He started the spinning of the ball after a first down or catch. I loved watching him play. It's ashame his career was cut short.

    I also really liked watching Troy Vincent and Marco Coleman play. They were some real up & comers that were fun to watch. I was really mad when they left.

    that was the bad of having j.j. as coach. he wanted his players and vincent and coleman weren't. i was a huge crash fan until he rtired then O.J. took that spot. besides, he went to penn state!

    IMO All time favorite Dolphins in order;

    Coach Don Shula
    WR Paul Warfield
    QB Dan Marino
    RB Mercury Morris
    FB Larry Csonka
    C Dwight Stephenson
    OL Larry Little
    TE Marv Fleming
    LB John Offerdahl
    CB Don McNeal
    SS **** Anderson
    K Olindo Mare
    DE Jason Taylor
    WR Mark Clayton

    These Dolphin greats were(are) simply the best at what football is all about! Current players such as Williams, Thomas, Surtain, Chambers, and McMichael can climb given the time. The over-rated Griese's should never appear on anyone's list and definitely not on mine.
