I'll have to say Bernie Parmalee. Remember all the hype about him being the UPS guy. He was, for a brief moment, the Kurt Warner of the league. He was the guy that came from total obscurity to NFL stardom in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, it wasn't too long before he was back to obscurity. :(

had that great game (11/27/88) ag. the N.Y. Jets with 2 catches for 117 yards and an 80 yard TD; and was supposed to be the big TE with great speed to open up the middle of the field to Dan, but never did anything with the Fins or anyone else.

he was certainly noteworthy off the field, but never did that much on it. How about Delvin Williams ? That was a name that we heard for lots of pre-JJ and Kareem years :eek: :(

I thought he showed promise on the field. Delvin Williams never did much.

Yeah I was hoping he'd have a good career, we went to the same high school in Gainesville, FL. He was All-County in track and football. And when he became a Hurricane, that pissed off ALL the locals. Everybody, even his family was mad he didn't go to UF. I wonder what ever happened to him since he left Miami.:confused:

I'd have to say you're way off in this one 06. Offerdahl may not have had the kind of longevity that he should've but the guy had quite a few really good seasons with the 'Fins. "Flash in the pan" guys are usually one season wonders, whereas Offerdahl was a around long enough to have been a known commodity of the 'Fins for awhile.
