    So if Zach is to leave, then what ?

    If he goes to a winner (presumably NE) and wins a championship, and then gets into the HoF, do you think he goes in as a Dolphin or the team he wins the championship with ?

    Probably the Dolphins. I don't think there's any question that Junior Seau is going into the HOF as a San Diego Charger, even if he'd won the Super Bowl this year. I wouldn't be surprised if Zach did what Richmond Webb did and signed a one-day contract with the Dolphins so he could officially retire a Dolphin when the time comes.

    NFL players don't go in under a team like baseball players do.

    How could he not go in as a dolphin, We are who made him, not anybody else. Green Bay made Favre so Favre will go in as Green Bay not Atlanta.

    How can this question even be brought up? Are you serious? How can Zach not go into the Hall as a Dolphin. Some questions just are better not being brought up.

    Goes in as a Dolphin

    If he gets in that is.....which is a possibility, i mean he's right up there among the all-time leading Tacklers. He's been a pro-bowler 7 times.

    The problem is not a whole lot of defenders get into the Hall, and i think only 16 or 17 linebackers are in, Derrick Thomas being one who isn't.

    Andre Tippett got in though, so if Zach cant get in if Tippett did then they should just board up Canton.

    Don't see him getting into the hall. Very good player for numerous seasons, but he was never even the best MLB in the league during his prime.

    If he had a ring I think he'd probably make it in, but he won't get in based solely on his stats.

    Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher

    Urlacher now over the last several years, Lewis before that.

    There's no questions about it. If Zach gets in, it will be with the Dolphins.

    I dont mean to bash the TS but this is a common sense reply. Of course he goes to the HOF as a Phin. Just because he wins a championship with a team for one year does not mean he will be in the Hall with them. He has spent his whole career here. If he was to choose another team as his representative in the HoF, I wood NEVER forgive him. I am sure he does not give a rats *** about my opinion on him as he has other fans, but for my personal sake, I could not forgive him.

    Zach will be in the hall of fame. Maybe not on the first ballot, but he'll be there as a Dolphin.

    Did You Know????????

    Zach Thomas has more tackles than any linebacker in the HOF as of now.
    He did that as a Dolphin, so my guess is when he goes in... it will be in our colors.


    Way to go Zach!
