    The Dolphins have had plenty of fan favorites over the years. Just a little discussion letting everybody know who your favorite Dolphins player is or was. The obvious choices are going to be Dan Marino, Zach Thomas, and Jason Taylor, but let us know some of the others you grew up admiring...

    JT is by far my fav. and the reason he is above Marino is that Dan really isn't a nice guy. But some less known ones would be Oranda Ogulla (sp) and Brian Cox because he was the man when I was a kid. Oh how he hated the BILLS!

    I went to Univ of Louisville and my neighbor on campus was RB Ron Davenport.

    I actually took a call on our floor phone from someone from the Dolphins before the draft looking for him.

    CB Sam Madison, WR Mark Clayton, LB Mark Sanders & current LB Robert McCune all Louisville products.

    I'm a big Ricky Williams fan, even throughout his troubles.

    Marino. I don't care if he's not a nice guy now, it's how he played on the field that mattered to me.

    i've met marino a couple of times and he was nothing but nice. there's actually a crazy story involving my brother and Dan here in connecticut but it's too long to get into. basically he went out of his way to talk to my brother and give him an autograph when he didn't even ask for one. he just knew that my brother wanted one. i've gotta say marino just for the fact i grew up watching him and everything he did for the fins.

    obviously marino is my favorite....there hasnt been another prolific passer like him in Dolphins history (except maybe griese), if he had ronnie or ricky in his backfield who knows how many super bowls he would have won.

    When I was a kid, my favorite player was Nat Moore. He was the clutch receiver for so many years. Third down and 7? Nat's on the other end for a 1st-down.

    I am surprised and sorry you feel that way about Dan. I, and several friends of mine have inadvertently run into Dan and his family on a few occasions in So. Fl. He has always been cordial and gracious to meet people as So. Fl Dolfans. I have never seen him NOT be nice, or be a gentleman.

    Of course Dan Marino.


    But before him it was AJ Duhe. He is still my favorite right after Dan.

    Csonka - He could FALL forward for a 3 yard gain

    Marino - No explanation needed

    Ricky Williams - His personal life aside

    Jake Scott - Athlete extraordinaire

    Don Shula!!

    I have to put a special mention in for Steve DeBerg. He took over after Dan's Achille tear and Scott Mitchell went down. The man was a freakin' warrior. He played his heart out for the Fins.

    Oh how could I forget the famous #77 Duhe... as well as #93 Trace Armstrong (seeing him and JT voted to the probowl was nice) sad to see him go to the Raiders for that short time...and #23 Troy Vincent
    Webb & Simms the best left tackle/left guard combo in franchise history

    Outside of the obvious ones, Glenn Blackwood and when the Fins signed his brother Lyle, the Bruise Brothers were born! Also was a big fan of Tim Foley

    Foley was and is the only player in NFL history to block 2 punts in a game and return them both for TD's.

    I'm 19 years old so most of my favorites come from the late 90's up to now.

    With that said, I love Lamar Smith when I was in Jr. high and I actully bought his jersey and still have it hanging on my wall. :) Talking to my fellow 7th grade friends about him dominating the Colts in the wildcard game was just awesome. I will never forget where I was and how I felt on that day and I have Smith to thank.

    Favorite former Fins:
    Dan Marino
    Lamar Smith
    O.J McDuffie
    Orande Gadsden
    Rob Konrad
    Patrick Surtain

    Favorite current Fins:
    Chris Chambers
    Ronnie Brown
    Jason Taylor
    Zach Thomas
    Yerimiah Bell

    In that order for each.

    1. Larry Csonka #39...loved watching him crush and carry tacklers 4-5 yards
    2. Don Shula...needs NO explaination
    3. Dan Marino #13 ..his arm and competitveness were second to none.
    4. Zach Thomas #54...not big, but one of the hardest hitters in the game-smart!
