Alec Ingold: One Extra Blade of Grass

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep Despite being the only fullback invited to the 2019 NFL Combine, Alec Ingold went undrafted and actually accepted a job offer from a tech company before finally receiving a call from the Oakland Raiders. Ingold went on to become a key contributor to the Raiders offense and was named a team captain in his third year, however a torn ACL ended his season and eventually his tenure in silver and black. Ingold did not skip a beat, however, signing with the Miami Dolphins this offseason and has been making an impact on and off the field ever since. In The Tank, Alec raves about being a part of the Dolphins explosive offense (3:34) and relishes this opportunity to “reinvent” the fullback position (6:24). He goes on to explain how being passed over in the draft forced him to develop a drive that still fuels him to this day (10:59).

Sage Rosenfels: Coaching Matters

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep A fourth-round draft choice by Washington in 2001, Sage Rosenfels was traded to Miami prior to the 2002 season and spent four years with the Dolphins, sharing a quarterback room with the likes of Jay Fiedler, Ray Lucas, Brian Griese, A.J. Feeley, and Gus Frerotte during that stretch. Rosenfels’ career would span 11 NFL seasons, but it was his stunning performance in leading the Fins back from a 21-point fourth quarter deficit against the Buffalo Bills in 2005 that Miami fans remember him most for.  In The Tank, Sage reflects upon his Miami Dolphins tenure (7:01) and takes us back to that epic fourth quarter comeback over the Bills in ’05 (12:01). In the wake of Tua Tagovailoa’s six TD performance at Baltimore this year, Sage also recalls his own four TD fourth quarter (21:19), explains how impactful it was to be surrounded by the likes of Kyle Shanahan and Mike McDaniel after signing with the Houston Texans in 2006 (30:26), and provides phenomenal insight on their offensive philosophies (43:44).

Mike Pouncey: I’m Hiring People

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep A two-time First Team All-American at the University of Florida, Mike Pouncey appeared to be a can’t-miss prospect in the 2011 NFL Draft, and proved to be exactly that after the Miami Dolphins selected him with the 15th overall pick. Pouncey would go on to start all 16 games during his rookie campaign, and earned three Pro Bowl nods over the course of his seven seasons with the Dolphins, twice at center and once at guard. Pouncey played out the final three seasons of his professional career with the San Diego Chargers, where he made another trip to the Pro Bowl in 2018. Making his second appearance in The Fish Tank, but his first without twin brother, Maurkice, Mike reveals how the Pouncey brothers went on a journey to transform their bodies in retirement and were able to lose nearly 60 pounds each (2:16) while also discussing the factors that led the twins to retire together (9:10). Mike gets sentimental when remembering former Fins Head Coach Tony Sparano (19:44), explains why group success as an offensive lineman far outweighs individual accolades (22:36), but does share how meaningful it was to make the Pro Bowl as a guard in 2014 (25:17), and to fulfil a lifelong dream of playing next to his brother at the highest level (29:25). Finally, the older Pouncey brother discusses their pursuit of success with several business ventures (30:08), his obsession with tattoos (33:06), and closes out the interview with the Two-Minute Drill (36:10).  Contributors to this episode include Sean “DJ Prec” Todd and Dolphins Productions.

Dave Shula: Tough Love

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep When your last name is Shula, football will flow through your veins, and that was certainly the case for Dave Shula. The eldest son of Pro Football Hall of Fame coach and Miami Dolphins icon, Don Shula, Dave would play wide receiver at Dartmouth College, before one year returning kicks with the Baltimore Colts and eight seasons on his father’s Miami Dolphins’ coaching staff. Dave would ultimately follow in his father’s footsteps, becoming an NFL head coach himself, leading the Cincinnati Bengals from 1992-1996. In The Tank, Dave recalls what it was like to grow up as a Shula (2:28) and to be the envy of his peers as a ball boy for 1972 Undefeated Miami Dolphins (4:54), but also explains why his father blamed him for Garo Yepremian’s ill-fated pass attempt in Super Bowl VII (8:23).

Looking Back: Csonka, Little & Morris Dive in The Fish Tank

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the1972 Miami Dolphins Perfect Season, OJ and Seth revisit one of their favorite episodes featuring three legends from that championship team: Larry Csonka, Larry Little, and Mercury Morris. There were many factors that contributed to the perfect 17-0 record. One reason was their fearsome rushing attack that helped Miami become the first team in NFL history to feature two backs who each rushed for 1,000 yards in the same season. Those two backs were Pro Football Hall of Fame fullback Larry Csonka and the electric Mercury Morris. Paving the way for Csonka and Morris was an all-star offensive line lead by Hall of Fame guard, Larry Little. This legendary trio dives in to The Tank and it is no surprise that the result is one of our most spectacular episodes to date. From Csonka and Jim Kiick sneaking out of the team hotel through the bushes, to Little earning his poultry inspired nickname, to Morris’ supernatural exploits with “The Root Man,” these guys are as dynamic on the mic as they were on the field!

Kim Bokamper: Bo Knows

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep Selected by the Dolphins in the first round of the 1977 NFL Draft, Kim Bokamper played his entire career in Miami, first as an outside linebacker from 1977-1980, and then as a defensive end from 1981-1985. Bokamper would become a fixture in South Florida as a television broadcaster on WFOR-TV CBS Miami, as a sideline reporter for Dolphins games for 560 WQAM Radio, and as a restaurateur with his “Bokamper’s Sports Bar & Grill” restaurants. Bo, who is also one of the all-time great story tellers in Dolphins’ history, dives in with OJ and Seth for the first time since 2019, and does not disappoint. Fresh of the Dolphins historic come-from-behind victory over the Baltimore Ravens, we relive the thrilling experience from his sideline vantage point (3:03), which of course sparks memories of Bob Griese becoming the first Fins passer to throw six TDs in a 1977 game that Bo also had a front row seat to (7:47). Kim tells us the craziest thing he ever witnessed as a sideline reporter (10:16), recalls weathering the storm of both Defensive Coordinator Bill Arnsparger and legendary Head Coach Don Shula after a missed sack opportunity (14:56), and explains why even the equipment truck was held to Shula’s strict schedule (17:58).

Following his run with the Dolphins, Spielman spent 16 seasons (2006-2021) in Minnesota, including 10 years as the Vikings’ GM.

He discusses joining Dave Wannstedt in Miami in 2000 (21:06) and fondly reflects upon the Dolphins victory over the Colts in the Wild Card round of the playoffs that season, while providing unique perspective from the mind of a football executive who has no control of the outcome on gameday (28:05).

Terry Kirby: I Am Cornholio

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep Terry Kirby was one of the most prolific high school athletes the state of Virginia has ever seen, leaving his mark on both football and basketball record books and earning his place in the Virginia High School League Hall of Fame. A standout career at the University of Virginia followed with the running back finishing as the school’s all-time leader in rushing before Don Shula selected him in the third round of the 1993 NFL Draft. Kirby continued to set records in his rookie season with the Miami Dolphins and was hugely popular with his teammates and fans alike but was traded by Jimmy Johnson prior to the 1996 season. Making his second Fish Tank appearance, “TK” claps back at his former college and pro teammate, Mark Dixon, who took shots at Terry’s hoop game (3:03) and continues the basketball theme by taking us to a heated card game with Michael Jordan (5:52).

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep Cleo Lemon’s unlikely odyssey from camp casualty to South Florida hero culminated when he forever etched his name on the hearts of Miami fans with a game-winning, overtime TD pass to Greg Camarillo, lifting the Dolphins to their first and only win of the 2007 season.

John Offerdahl: Living Life Off The Grill

An Official Miami Dolphins Podcast One might find it hard to believe that a small-town Wisconsin kid could be come an All-Pro NFL linebacker – in Miami no less! – but that is exactly what John Offerdahl did. Offerdahl received just one Division I offer following high school, a partial scholarship to Western Michigan University. It didn’t take long for the partial to become a full scholarship, nor did it take long for Offerdahl to become a four-year starter, team leader, three-time All-MAC player, and second-team All American. It was his performance in the 1986 Senior Bowl, however, that truly peaked the interest of NFL scouts as Offerdahl’s goal line stops against Heisman Trophy-winning folk hero Bo Jackson helped him earn the game’s Defensive MVP award. Don Shula’s Miami Dolphins were impressed enough to use their first selection in the NFL draft on Offerdahl and he did not disappoint. In his rookie season, Offerdahl was selected to the Pro Bowl, named a second-team All Pro, and shared NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. The Pro Bowl became a second home for Offerdahl as Shula’s defensive captain was named to the all star game in each of his first five seasons. When he wasn’t knocking down running backs, Offerdahl tackled the restaurant industry, building Offerdahl’s Bagel Gourmet into a 10-store mini empire and eventually selling the business to what would become Einstein Bros. Five years after the sale, he re-entered the restaurant industry opening what is now called Offerdahl’s Off the Grill. In The Tank, John vividly details his head-on meetings with Bo Jackson, shares how he handled an epic Don Shula expletive-filled rant, explains how a contract hold out also may have helped prepare him for the restaurant business, and discusses how his desire for, and receptiveness to, good coaching has shaped his life in many ways.

Wes Welker: Finally Somebody Did Their Homework

An Official Miami Dolphins Podcast Wes Welker has been underestimated for most of his life…and what a mistake that has been! Despite a spectacular high school career for which he was named the Oklahoma State Player of the Year as a senior, the 5-9 Welker did not receive a single college offer until a Texas Tech recruit backed out of his scholarship at the last minute. As a Red Raider, Welker quickly earned the nickname “The Natural” and over four years, hauled in 21 receiving touchdowns, two rushing TDs, and set then-NCAA records for punt return yards (1,761) and punt return touchdowns (8), but did not receive an invite to the NFL combine, and went undrafted in 2004. Welker signed with the San Diego Chargers as a free agent and made the team’s final 53-man roster, only to be released after the first game of the season. The Miami Dolphins signed Welker and he became an immediate cult hero in South Florida. Initially shining as a special teams standout (and still holding several team records in the kicking game), Welker quickly became a valuable contributor to the Dolphins offense as well. The New England Patriots traded for Welker prior to the 2007 season, and he rewarded them by becoming one of the most productive wide receivers in NFL history, leading the league in receptions in 2007, 2009, and 2011, earning five Pro Bowl nods, and finishing his career with 16,797 all-purpose yards and nearly 15 NFL records. Wes dove in with OJ and Seth prior to the 2021 NFL Draft and discussed his Cherokee heritage, explains a helmet-sized initiation into the Dolphins locker room, fondly recalls attending an outrageous bar mitzvah with Jason Taylor and Zach Thomas, shares how he pulled Tom Brady and Bill Belichick into an epic prank of fellow former Dolphin Larry Izzo, and reveals his thoughts on whether or not he deserves a bust in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Olindo Mare: It Can't Be That Hard

Miami Dolphins Tales From The DeepOlindo Mare was born in South Florida and attended Cooper City High School, less than five miles away from the Miami Dolphins Training Facility in Davie, where he would spend a decade rewriting the team’s record books. Mare’s journey to reach his destiny was not a traditional one, however. The son of Italian immigrants, Mare’s first love was soccer and it wasn’t until he and a friend witnessed an uninspired performance by their high school kicker that they decided to try out for the football team during his junior season. Mare did not immediately receive a scholarship, and played for MacMurray College in Illinois before he and his father made their own kicking video that compelled the Syracuse Orange to give Olindo a shot.

Baumhower would play his entire nine-year career in Miami, playing in 130 games with 129 starts, earning five Pro Bowl nods and five All-Pro selections (2 first-team; 3 second team) as well as he anchored the Fins Killer B’s defense of the 1980s. In 2008, he was inducted into the Miami Dolphins Honor Roll. In The Tank, Bob shared his unlikely path to the University of Alabama and how one conversation with the legendary Bear Bryant changed his life. He also recalled some rookie hazing from Dolphins great Manny Fernandez, enjoying the fun and sun of South Florida with the likes of Mark Duper, Nat Moore, and Hugh Green, partnering with Joe Namath in his first experience in the restaurant business that would lead to a life-long post-football career, and a trip to Lion Country Safari that resulted in an unexpected house pet.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Brandon Marshall: Once You Lose It, Then You Lose

Standing 6 ft. 5 in. and weighing more than 230 pounds, Brandon Marshall looks more defensive end than wide receiver, which is exactly why he was nicknamed “The Beast” during his prolific 13-year NFL career. Another reason for this moniker is his monstrous stat line, which includes 970 receptions for 12,351 yards and 83 touchdowns. While Marshall began his career with the Denver Broncos, the Miami Dolphins traded for the wideout in 2010 following three consecutive 100+ reception seasons and two Pro Bowl selections. It was in Miami, however, that Marshall’s off the field and personal challenges drove him to seek help, ultimately leading to a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). In The Tank, Brandon recalls his difficulties in Miami and candidly shares a conversation with Ricky Williams that led him down the path of recovery. He openly and honestly evaluates his role as a teammate and leader, including an incident with former Dolphins first-round draft choice Vontae Davis. Brandon also discusses his philanthropic work in the mental health space, and two of his latest endeavors in House of Athlete and the I Am Athlete Podcast.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

A.J. Duhe: I’ll Have The Pork Parmesan

A native of Reserve, Louisiana, A.J. Duhe followed a legendary high school career by becoming one of the top players in the Southeastern Conference at LSU. In 1977, the Miami Dolphins selected Duhe with the 13th overall pick in the first round of the NFL Draft and he did not disappoint, tallying 83 tackles and seven sacks to be named the 1977 Associated Press NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. Duhe would play his entire eight-year professional career with the Dolphins as both a defensive end and linebacker, earning Pro Bowl honors in his final season of 1984. He is best remembered, however, for his performance in the 1982 AFC Championship game in the Orange Bowl against the New York Jets. In that game, Duhe snagged three interceptions, returning one 35 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to seal Miami’s 14-0 victory and a trip to Super Bowl XVII. In The Tank, A.J. shares his passion for food that may also come with a bit of individuality, recalls how tough Don Shula was, but also how much he respects the legendary Dolphins Head Coach, explains where he fit in among the Killer B’s Defense, and offers some marriage advice that only a man married 40 years can provide.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Greg Camarillo: I Didn’t Suck

After turning down Harvard to walk on at Stanford, Greg Camarillo signed with the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2005. While with the Chargers, Camarillo was relegated to special teams duties, however in 2007, former Chargers offensive coordinator, Cam Cameron, took the helm in Miami and claimed Greg off of waivers. Camarillo caught just 8 passes for 160 yards that season, however one of those catches became the play that would define his seven-year NFL career. The Dolphins begin the ’07 season with 13 consecutive losses but on December 16, Miami quarterback Cleo Lemon connected with Camarillo on a 64-yard touchdown pass in overtime against the Baltimore Ravens, clinching the team’s first and only win of the season. In The Tank, Greg reflects on his game winning catch that has cemented his place in Dolphins history, sharing what led up to that moment and how that singular play has impacted the rest of his life. He also opens up about the difficulties of being traded, the importance of having a parking pass when entering Hard Rock Stadium on game day, being inspired by words of wisdom from Michael Jordan, and explains why he is a legend of O.J.

Bart Scott: What’s a Goon to a Goblin?

Born in Detroit, Michigan, Bart Scott overcame long odds to star at Southern Illinois University. Scott was not selected in the 2002 NFL Draft and eventually signed with the Baltimore Ravens, quickly becoming a special teams standout. Following a Ray Lewis injury in 2005, Scott saw his playing time and production increase, a prelude to the best season in his career the following year. In 2006, Scott started every game for the Ravens, finishing with a career-high 145 tackles, 9.5 sacks and two interceptions en route to a Pro Bowl appearance.

Keith Jackson: This is Football, Not Shakespeare

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep Keith Jackson, a 2001 College Football Hall of Fame inductee, played for the University of Oklahoma from 1984 to 1987, twice earning consensus All-America honors, while also helping the Sooners earn a National Championship in 1985. Buddy Ryan and the Philadelphia Eagles made Jackson the 13th overall selection in the 1988 NFL Draft and did not disappoint, being selected to the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons in Philly. Jackson joined the Miami Dolphins on September 29, 1992, ending an extended holdout from the Eagles and becoming a pioneer in the National Football League’s free agency process. The All-Pro tight end wasted little time in becoming one of Dan Marino’s favorite targets, as well as a fan favorite, hauling in a 24-yard touchdown pass against the Buffalo Bills just five days after he signed with Miami. In his three seasons with the Dolphins, Jackson tallied 146 receptions for 1,880 yards and 18 TDs and was selected to the Pro Bowl twice. During his visit in The Fish Tank, Jackson fondly reflects on his tenure in Miami, particularly his appreciation for Marino, while also discussing the challenges he faced with the Dolphins’ weekly weigh-ins, his efforts to help a young McDuffie manage his own expectations, and shares a poignant homage to the late, great Don Shula.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Todd Wade: Me and Mrs. Jones

Miami Dolphins Tales From The DeepA three-year starter at Ole Miss, Todd Wade snagged first-team All-SEC and second-team All-America honors his senior season before the Miami Dolphins selected him in the second round of the 2000 NFL Draft (the team’s first draft choice that year). Wade immediately became a fixture at right tackle for the Dolphins, starting 63 of the team’s 64 regular season contests and three playoff games during his four years in Miami. Along the way, he was selected to the NFL’s All-Rookie Team in 2000 and helped lead the way for three 1,000-yard rushing seasons (Lamar Smith in 2000 and Ricky Williams in 2002 & 2003). Wade would play in four more NFL seasons, including two in Houston and two in Washington. In The Tank, Todd provides insight on playing with both Williams and Smith, discusses scuba diving adventures with Zach Thomas and Jason Taylor that may have gone too far, fondly recalls the characters in the Dolphins offensive line room, reflects on epic training camp brawls with the Dolphins defensive line, reveals his Marvel alter ego, and in a Fish Tank first, goes into full karaoke mode to close the show. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Keith Sims: The Left Side

A Baltimore native who played his college football in Warren, New Jersey, Keith Sims would go on to enjoy a standout career as a left guard at Iowa Sate University, which would ultimately land him in the school’s Athletics Hall of Fame. In 1990, looking to bolster their offensive line and protect franchise quarterback Dan Marino, the Miami Dolphins selected Sims in the second round of the NFL Draft after also taking left tackle Richmond Webb with their first-round selection. For the next decade, Sims and Webb would anchor the Dolphins offensive line and earn multiple trips to the Pro Bowl, with Sims reaching that height three times from 1993 to 1995. In The Tank, Keith shares how much he enjoyed making up half of the Fins 1-2 punch on the offensive line alongside Richmond Webb for so many years, explains why it might make more sense to take a cab instead of a limo to a game against the Buffalo Bills of the 1990s, recalls a meal that nearly led to him missing the team’s flight to Tokyo, and opens up about his struggles with weight and depression following his playing career.

Manny Fernandez: The Phantom Was Here

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep A California native, Manny Fernandez went undrafted out of the University of Utah, signing with the fledgling Miami Dolphins franchise in 1968 under then head coach, George Wilson. Fernandez was voted the Dolphins Outstanding Defensive Lineman his first five seasons with the team but his game began to raise to another level in 1970 as Don Shula took the helm. He was named a second team Pro Bowl performer that season and again in 1973, when he was also honored as the NFL’s Unsung Player of the Year. As consistent as he was throughout his eight-year career, it was the Super Bowl that brought the best out of him. During the Dolphins’ three consecutive Super Bowl appearances, Fernandez tallied 28 tackles and three sacks, including a 17 tackle, 1 sack performance in Super Bowl VII that many felt was worthy of the game’s MVP rather than Fins safety, Jake Scott. In 2014, Yahoo! Sports ranked him as the 10th best player in Super Bowl history. In The Tank, Manny discussed his less than ideal relationship with his coach at Utah, revealed his reason for choosing Miami over two other teams interested in him out of college and recalled the dramatic change in Miami, as Don Shula’s incredibly tough but highly effective style would change the franchise forever. Manny also shared the true story behind the legend of the alligator that turned up in the iconic coach’s shower, the reason why a mysterious illness not only nearly caused him to miss his enshrinement in the Dolphins Honor Roll, but almost cost him his life, and explained why Zach Thomas may never go hunting with him again.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Richmond Webb: Big Guys Love Small Cars

The Miami Dolphins had high hopes for Richmond Webb when they selected him out of Texas A&M with the ninth overall pick of the 1990 draft and the left tackle not only met, but greatly exceeded all expectations. Charged with protecting Dan Marino’s blindside, Webb was an instant starter on the Dolphins offensive line. He played every offensive snap during his rookie year, only giving up two sacks and instantly proving he could go toe-to-toe with divisional rival, Bruce Smith. Webb was so dominant that he was named to the Pro Bowl in each of his first seven seasons, landing a spot on the NFL 1990s All-Decade Team.

One of the more outspoken and boisterous players to don a Dolphins uniform in the past 25 years, Ray Lucas’ story always comes back to his native Harrison, New Jersey. A heavily recruited high school athlete, Lucas turned away the suitors to stay home and attend Rutgers University. From 1992-95, Lucas became one of the most prolific Scarlet Knights signal callers in school history, ultimately being inducted in the Rutgers Athletics Hall of Fame in 2017. Despite his success in college, however, Lucas went undrafted in 1996, eventually signing with the New England Patriots as a free agent and beginning his NFL career as a wide receiver and on special teams. After one season with the Patriots, Lucas followed Bill Parcells to the New York Jets where he moved back into the quarterback room. In 1999, replacing an injured Vinny Testaverde, Ray finally got his shot under center, winning 6 of his 8 starts to lead the struggling Jets to an 8-8 finish. In 2001, Lucas joined the Dolphins where he backed up starter Jay Fiedler for two seasons and quickly became a popular personality in the Miami locker room.

Fiedler battled Damon Huard for the starting quarterback position and ultimately became the successor to Dolphins icon, Dan Marino. Helping to lead the Fins to back-to-back 11-5 seasons in his first two years under center, Fiedler was 36-17 in his first four years with the club.

Larry Izzo: I’ll Eat The Mustard

Larry Izzo overcame long odds as an undersized linebacker from Rice University who landed an opportunity as an undrafted free agent with Jimmy Johnson’s Miami Dolphins in 1996. Izzo not only made the roster that year, but he quickly became a fan favorite and leader of the Dolphins special teams unit over the course of his five-year tenure in South Florida, culminating that run with a Pro Bowl selection following the 2000 season. Free Agency led Izzo to New England in 2001 and he never skipped a beat, earning two more Pro Bowl births and three Super Bowl titles on his way to becoming one of the most prolific special teams performers in league history. His 298 career special teams tackles registered over the course of his 14 seasons are the most in NFL annals. In The Tank, Izzo discusses his unlikely path to Miami, becoming the first player not named Dan Marino to make the Dolphins roster during Johnson’s inaugural campaign, his life-long friendship with Dolphins legend Zach Thomas, and a moment where he and O.J. did not see eye-to-eye.

It is Williams’s enigmatic personality, however, that has often stood out even more than his gridiron greatness. The combination of the two endeared Williams to Miami Dolphins fans around the world when the team brought him to South Florida through a 2002 trade with the New Orleans Saints, and resulted in confusion, hurt, and outrage upon his unexpected but temporary retirement from football just days before the 2004 season. Diving in The Tank for the first time ever, Ricky fondly recalls his years as a Dolphin, particularly his prolific first two seasons. He candidly details the decisions behind his retirement (including a surprising assist from an unlikely source), his conversations with then Dolphins Head Coach Dave Wannstedt, and how meaningful and self-healing his time away from football was.

Larry Csonka, Larry Little & Mercury Morris: Perfection

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep There were many factors that contributed to the 1972 Miami Dolphins perfect 17-0 record. One reason was their fearsome rushing attack that helped Miami become the first team in NFL history to feature two backs who each rushed for 1,000 yards in the same season. Those two backs were Pro Football Hall of Fame fullback Larry Csonka and the electric Mercury Morris. Paving the way for Csonka and Morris was an all-star offensive line lead by Hall of Fame guard, Larry Little. This legendary trio dives in to The Tank and it is no surprise that the result is one of our most spectacular episodes to date. From Csonka and Jim Kiick sneaking out of the team hotel through the bushes, to Little earning his poultry inspired nickname, to Morris’ supernatural exploits with “The Root Man,” these guys are as dynamic on the mic as they were on the field!

Kiick was selected by the then-AFL’s Miami Dolphins in the fifth round of the 1968 draft. He quickly forged a bond with Larry Csonka that lead to the duo being dubbed “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” Kiick’s versatility on the field helped him become a key figure in the Dolphins reign of the early 70’s including back-to-back Super Bowl titles, which of course also featured the 1972 Perfect Season.

Mark Higgs: The Lawn Mower

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep Following a standout career at the University of Kentucky, running back Mark Higgs wasn’t selected until the eighth round of the 1988 NFL Draft, in part due to his small stature, standing only 5 feet 7 inches tall.  Higgs moved on to Philadelphia after only one year in Dallas, and then a year later joined the Miami Dolphins where he climbed the depth chart to eventually become the team’s leading rusher for three straight seasons. Affectionately referred to as “Higgy” he quickly became a fan-favorite in Miami.

Jason Taylor: Change The Narrative

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep   Once considered an undersized project from Akron University, Jason Taylor went on to become the most storied defender in Miami Dolphins history and as dynamic of a defensive playmaker that the National Football League had ever seen. As a pass rusher, Taylor shattered the Dolphins sack record and finished his career ranked sixth (now seventh) all-time in league annals with 139.5 quarterback takedowns. A six-time Pro Bowl selection and three-time first-team All Pro, Taylor was named the 2006 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and 2007 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year. In 2017, his first year of eligibility, he was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In The Tank, JT discusses overcoming early questions about his size and toughness, questioning his own ability in his first Jimmy Johnson training camp, and the value of having learned under Nick Saban. He also vividly recalls a brawl with former Fins guard, John Bock, an ill-advised motorcycle ride with defensive tackle Daryl Gardener, his unique relationships with Cam Cameron and Bill Parcells, and the time Michael Jordan visited him during a post-practice meeting. OJ and Seth couldn’t let JT go without addressing his reputation at Juice’s weekly basketball games.   This episode is sponsored by:   A&T Dry Cleaners https://www.drycleanertoyou.com/ Fish Tank listeners will receive 50% off their first order and 25% off all dry-cleaning afterwards!
