Analyzing the Dolphin Honor Roll — ... who could be named
http://www.palmbeachpost.com/sports/dol ... s_dolphins
Top candidates for induction
Linebackers John Offerdahl and Zach Thomas: Just as The Marks Brothers (Duper and Clayton) went in together, the Fish could honor two inside linebackers who lived up to the legacy of Nick Buoniconti. Extra points to Offerdahl for his community service.
Tight end Jim Mandich: Mr. Miami Dolphin. Member of undefeated team and unabashed backer of everything aqua and orange.
Linebacker Zach Thomas and defensive end Jason Taylor: That Thomas guy keeps popping up, doesn't he? OK, it's a given that both of these names will be on the stadium someday, as soon as Taylor takes off that green jersey. Since they are brothers-in-law and were rocks on the Fish defense all those years, maybe they ought to go up together (sorry, Offerdahl).
Defensive tackle Manny Fernandez: Honored as team's top defensive lineman six years in a row. Wasn't honored as MVP of Super Bowl VII despite 17 tackles and many teammates believing he should have been.
Running back Ricky Williams: Yeah, there was that messy divorce a few years back, but if he exits as the club's all-time leading rusher - ahead of deity Larry Csonka - it's tough to see how he won't get up there.
