    Out in Wasilla, Alaska, Larry Csonka is about as far from Miami as is geographically possible for a United States resident.

    But the Dolphins remain very close to his heart, and the wonders of technology have made it easy for him to follow the team for which he starred throughout the 1970s on his way to the Hall of Fame.

    Csonka is right on top of everything that’s happening with the Dolphins, and he’s getting a great nostalgic feeling as Brian Flores prepares for his first season as head coach.

    He's always been a class act. He bleeds aqua and orange for sure!

    I wasn’t around back then but I sure do get the feeling he does about this coach.

    My favorite all time Dolphin... have his signed, authenticated hall of fame jersey framed in my man cave....love this clip from his guest starring on “Six Million Dollar Man”....Dick Butkus and “Apollo Creed”(Carl Weathers) are on the bad guys team.

    Love Zonk. One of the all-timers. Wish I could’ve been around to watch him play.

    If you think about Miami's blueprint from the early 70's, that seems to be the direction Flores is heading when he talks about smart, tough football. Obviously, time will tell.

    Zonk was such a beast (way before the word was so overused)!

    Alaska (wilderness) is like the perfect place for him!

    Supporting Flores is great -- let's hope it's well deserved!

    That said, we could sure use a handful of dudes cut from the same cloth as Mr. Csonka.

    He's not really saying anything about Flores other than he has a good reputation. He's saying the current situation reminds him of 69/70.

    Can you imagine Zonk and Butkus on the same team / same era? Two of the toughest to ever play the game.
