    i wasn't taking a **** on his list...its a good list for the most part IMO....I was only disagreeing with a few who would not be on my list....

    Like I said I'd have Oliver and WIlliams in place of Allen. My list would pretty much lok the same as his.

    I think Chambers has more talent but with his surroundings= less productive.....


    I thought I would get flamed for RW and leaving out Warfield...:no:

    You did!!! :)

    But to make the Top-53 list... I just don't see it. The next couple of guys I would have added would have been Darryl Gardener and maybe Tony Nathan as another 3rd down guy. And there's others I think I'd have before Oronde on there.

    I can only dream of Chambers with Dan Marino. I mean, 900 yards with Fiedler, 1100 with Gus Frerotte. With Dan tossing the ball, OMG!

    yeah he'd probably have twice as many drops!!

    Sorry, couldn't resist! Just thinking about what COULD HAVE BEEN with Chambers and how we gave him away so cheaply still irritates me.

    Chambers was my favorite Dolphin before being traded, but the trade, especially now, makes sense. He could have helped with Beck's development next year, providing a veteran experienced WR, but we need the #2, which was pretty decent value, and he gets to go to a SD squad who look like perennial playoff contenders, he fits in. It's win all the way around except for us Dolphins/Chambers fans who wished he was still here.

    I will cheer him on in SD until they play us, and wait anxiously because I know Ginn will absolutely become a 1K receiver! Oh gawd I've derailed the thread, I'll stop now.

    Some modifications to the list, and some real questions about the CB area... But, good basic list to start with...

    Note: I'm not looking at any other lists until I do my own. But, I think, most of the positions are relatively easy, except for a few spots:

    Offense
    WR - Paul Warfield - He has to be #1. One of greatest of all-time (top 5) and lone HOF WR.
    WR - Mark Clayton; #3 WR - Duper; #4 - Nat Moore
    TE - Jim Mandich

    LT - Richmond Webb
    LG - Larry Little - HOF
    C - Dwight Stephenson / Jim Langer (two HOF's - had to put Langer out there)
    RG - Bob Keuchenberg - should be HOF
    RT - Norm Evans - perennial starter - 1965 to 75

    QB - Dan Marino (with props to Bob)
    FB - Larry Csonka
    RB - Ricky Williams with his head on straight. Otherwise, Jim Kiick. Williams is the greatest RB in Dolphin history from a talent and productivity in his prime. This was difficult. If we're talking about talent that did show itself on the field, even if briefly, RW is the man. Ronnie could move in here. Otherwise, in terms of contribution - Kiick and Morris were great, but I give the edge to Kiick - how can you not? He's part of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid!

    K - Yepremian - in spite of the SB blunder. He was a clutch kicker and made a big one in arguably the greatest playoff game of all time - Dolphins 27, Chiefs 24 - OT, Christmas Day, 1971. Everyone looks at the SD-Miami game; but I thought this game was an all-time classic. Still one of the greatest of all-time. And it was on Christmas Day! How can you beat that!

    Defense (going with 4 down linemen and 4 LB's):

    DE - Bill Stanfill (tough one - over Betters and others; but, he was under-rated and productive - He was NFL All-Pro 4 straight years - 71, 72, 73, 74; Pro Bowl in those years, plus 1969).
    NT - Manny Fernandez - anchor on the Great No Name Defense.
    DT - Tim Bowens (slight edge over Baumhower)
    DE - Jason Taylor - hard to argue with 'Fins all-time sack leader, 6 PB's, 5 All-Pro teams).

    OLB - Kim Bokamper - later moved to DE but first 4-5 seasons here. Lone "Killer B" on team.
    ILB - Nick Buoniconti
    ILB - Zach Thomas (slightly over A.J. Duhe - I think Duhe was slightly better in head-to-head best seasons, but Zach outlasts him). Shout out to John Offerdahl.
    OLB - Bob Matheson - OLB is arguably the Dolphins weakest all-time position. Larry Gordon had great potential before tragically dying; Kolen and Swift were starters over Matheson, but the "53 Defense" is named after Matheson's #53. Now, it's the 3-4.

    CB - Sam Madison - 5 time Pro Bowler; 4 time All-Pro
    CB - Patrick Surtain - 3 time PB - more than any other Dolphin CB other than Madison & Vincent (I like him slightly ahead of Troy).
    S - Dick Anderson
    S - Jake Scott
    - how can any one not put Anderson and Scott? These two roamed the D-backfield like few safety tandems in NFL history. Both made spectacular plays in big games. Arguably, the biggest playmakers in Dolphin defensive history.

    P - Reggie Roby - Booming punts like no other. Not real consistent, but still pretty awesome (kudos to Larry Seiple for his great fake punt against the Steelers in 72-73 playoffs, propelling Dolphins to SB against Washington).

    Good list. You need to tweak some positions. Langer was a center. Little was a guard. Buoniconti was a MLB. Matheson was OLB in the "53" defense. I forgot about Bryan Cox - good choice. Duhe was also MLB, but he was so, good, He'd start at OLB, so that's a good idea putting him there.

    But, a couple of things for you younguns ;) ... as noted in my list:

    Norm Evans, RT, was 1st team All-Pro 4 straight years (71-74); Paul Warfield has to be #1 - only Dolphin WR in HOF; And, truly was one of the all-time greats (top 3-4, imo). Jake Scott was all-world at S in the early 70's.

    Da 'Fins -

    Quality list and love the commentary. Can't argue about much. On mine, I have Duhe and don't have Bokamper and Stoyanovich ahead of Yepremian - but that's quibbling. We're not far off.

    But you get 53! Where's the depth? I did note you had back-up WRs and mentioned other players but even then, I'm only counting in the 30s.

    Anyway, while there's no right or wrong answers, as Mindwarp said, maybe some lists are more right than others. :wink2: And this list is a good starting point, imo. Great job!

    After looking at Da 'Fins list, if I decided to go back, I might take Larry Gordon off and add Kim Bokamper. And the Garo/Stoyo is a coin toss for me.

    Thanks!

    How some of you guys could leave out Troy Vincent on your list is beyond me. If we could have players at any point of their respected careers alot of the choices for me would be incredibly easy. Thurman Thomas, Irving Fryar, Kieth Jackson, Tony Martin...
