John Offerdahl to the Honor Roll

Old-time Dolphins middle linebacker Nick Buoniconti is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Latter-day Dolphins middle linebacker Zach Thomas may someday be considered for the Hall of Fame. Both are in the prestigious Dolphins Honor Roll at Sun Life Stadium.

And in a couple of hours at the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce Kickoff luncheon, the Dolphins will announce that the middle linebacker who was something of a link between Buoniconti in the 1970s and Thomas in the 1990s is also going to be inducted into the Honor Roll.

John Offerdahl, who played for Miami from 1986 to 1993, will be announced as the 26th member of the Honor Roll.

He will be inducted on Thursday, Oct. 31 at halftime of the primetime game between the Dolphins and the Cincinnati Bengals. There are 24 individuals and one team -- the perfect season team of 1972 -- already on the Dolphins Honor Roll.

Offerdahl, 48, is a deserving choice.

Although his career was way too short for the liking of most Miami fans, Offerdahl was a five time Pro Bowl player from his rookie year in 1986 to 1990. He struggled with injuries throughout his career but when he was healthy, he was the anchor to a defense that definitely could have used more players like him.

Offerdahl went to the Dolphins as a second round pick out of Western Michigan. When he was picked (he was the first player the Dolphins selected in '86 because they didn't have a first-round selection) most pundits said, "Who?"

Offerdahl quickly made a name for himself with impeccable tackling. He was an excellent run-stopper and solid in pass coverage. So, yes, he was a three-down linebacker.

Offerdahl, who is a successful restaurant chain entrepeneur, is having a very good year. He was inducted into the Mid-American Conference Hall of Fame earlier this year.

.,and even FRAUD has combed out his niche here...without being to disrespectful....

Posted by: Kris | August 17, 2013 at 10:10 AM

If some of you wonder why Kris is considered the absolute dumbest person on the blog, look no further than the above statement.

Fraud by his own admission is Pricemaster, TheSMF,Lincoln C,Cadillac, Sparrow, Jack, and a few other names that have REPEATEDLY told bloggers he would grab their ears and shoot off in their mouth.

Dont buy ETF's rebuttal that it's been years and people have stole his name.

Now even though this has been exposed many times here, KrisIdiot still comes by complimenting one of he worst blog offenders and saying he is not disrespectful?

Huh?

What an unbelievably dumb and gullible loser.

Fraud is NOT Jack! Take that to the bank and cash it...

And thats a fact...

I didn't say Jack!, I meant Jack Sparrow, was just typing fast.

YG....

Why the name games.....seriously.....we all know its you....it's always you.... It's always been you....

Are you jealous.....do you think you should be the only one to corner the market on less tha tasteful post....

FRAUD is all of those things you said above...but in recent weeks if not months....he hasn't been "that guy"....and thus he is received as such....

You....

You are still EVERYTHING that is wrong with this place...and you are treated accordingly....

Frye,

Many people here (I guess there are only a few really) are so desperate for football chat they will givie up time living their lives to come here and post with absolute morons and infantile rejects.

The blog isn't better now than before as suggested, it is a cesspool of idiocy and drivel.

Politicians LOVE people like them!

Kris, dont you hate when trolls trys to call out other trolls???

Home....


YEAH...Tannehill's numbers aren't great so far...

But I'm probably going to wait until the end of NEXT Season before I make a final judgement .That's when he'll have his required 48 starts (which is the NFL Standard for evaluating a BUST.)

His accuracy is a question right now...but we have to consider that the Dolphins look as though they're going to start the season with a below average Offensive line.

Many of his throws have been made while running for his life.


We can only hope that this team finds enough chemistry to play better than they have looked during the past three weeks.

Copy that Frye...just wanted...to make sure...

Anyone posting around here regular usually knows who's who...sometimes not though I'd suppose...


Fin4life......

You can post all the numbers you like....but my heart will always be in the Offerdahl camp....he is the 2nd biggest reason I am a FIN FAN today.....

Guy was all heart.....

I NEVER said he wasn't a GRITTY player who gave it his all on a very BAD Defensive Football team. I think one of the reasons people remember Offerdahl so fondly is because he was the 1st sign of life breathed into that DEFENSE in Yrs. The Killer Bees were a smallish group which DC Arnsbarger schemed into one of the ERA'S few 3/4 squads. He played the Safety's (Blackwood Bro's) a cannon shot of the line in deep support to mask the slow DB's outside of the often injured Don McNeal (FAST) they began to really shown age by SB-17 in 82 (average age over 30) and were giving up points at a clip by 83 before the wheels came off in 84.

Folks tend to forget we gave up an average of around 24 to 30 points a game in 84 because Marino was putting up 31 to 42 a game that Season before the 49ers exposed them with Marino having a tough day in SB-19. After that we knew we needed Marino to have the ball last with a shot to win, it was that simple! Even Vs. the lousy Bears Offenses of the 80's folks forget (I was there) that we took a 31-10 lead into the half of the 85 CLASSIC and needed a fluke catch of a deflection that Clayton scored on to pull away in the 4th Qrt. that night with the Bears pulling at one point back within 7 at 31-24, facts lost in History!

Offerdahl comes in during 86 to man the Middle with H.Green applying the pressure outside then Green suffered really a career killing injury in 86 and Offerdahl while giving it his all was always hurt, just one of those guys. You loved the effort and leadership but facts are facts some were posting his HOF credentials yesterday while comparing him to Dwight Stevenson ELITE and even when healthy as the man in the middle of a 4/3 only posted the one double digit tackle average, OK FAN FAV!! GREAT HEART, GRITTY PLAYER!! All that and can make a GREAT BAGGLE by the way but not the ELITE Talent that NFL forgot as you guys were talking which is what I took exception to.

YG.....

Should I leave now...

Would that make it easier for to make up more names and agree with yourself....

New names we have never seen...but they have all the blog history...

Signed'
We're Not as dumb as you look....

FRAUD is all of those things you said above...but in recent weeks if not months....he hasn't been "that guy"....and thus he is received as such....

Just so we understand each other. A guy can tell you for years he is going to force you to blow him and swallow, and then all he as to do to win you over is be nice for a couple of months.

Ok. Got it.

You two make a cute couple. Will you be having him over for dinner this weekend? LOL.

Sad, sad, sad.

Frye...did you grow up in West Orange ?

What's sad YG...

Is that you are concern yourself with who I keep company with on a blog site.....

That is what's sad.....

Lamar Miller is not a good blocker. Neither is J Martin, Keller, or John Jerry.

Born and raised in East Grapefruit.

Kris does not do a good job of defending himself. He needs odin here to bwaahaaa haaaa all over the place and distract everyone's attention. I'm sure later there will be a bunch and cut and paste posts coming up.

Tannehill is not the type of QB that can overcome or hide the weak spots.

MiramarDave

You are going to have to do better than that to get a rise out of someone.

You don't say! I'm from Southern Strawberry Hills!

That's the problem with engaging in banter with YG.....

He is to dumb to know when he is beaten.....

He will just make up more names....and keep trolling....

Matt Moore is better at hiding the mediocre OL, yes?

MiramarDave


Nothing to do on a Saturday? Why not see if odin can lend you a hottie?

Can somebody cares to talk about what they think or hope will happen Tonight vs Texans? About this pre-Season? This Season? About 2013?

I've found YG to be more reasonable and knowledgeable than Dashi or Odin when it comes to football talk.

You know, sometimes this blog appears to be intentionally made to reject Football Fans.

Kris, are you certain the posts are from YG? How can you be sure? Are you tracking ip's?

YG often calls bloggers out in his regular name, so why does he need to change names?

I would not accuse people without being certain.

oscar,

Tonight you'll see if Jerry can man the OT spot, he may not look pretty Vs. Watt (some of the best don't) but you want to see him hold his own. Tanne should play well into 2nd period and we hope he has better showing with Rec's. Also the LB's Vs. potent intermediate pass attack of Texans. If they get that going in 10 to 15 yard range their impossible to stop.

I'm certain YG @ 12:49....

Quite certain...

oscar,

I meant to say Martin of course!

I really don't know what is happening with Football People not only here but in all SoFla. Jerry is not ready to play yet(official). Omar Kelly says that Watt will line up over Incognito. WTH is going on?

Ron B = Dead Breed/Flipper

oscar,

Lamar Miller's ability to cover A.Johnson is paramount tonight and the Season greatly hinges on it!!!!!!

Kris,

Your toughts on Kaleb Sturgis playing QB tonight? Also Solia at FB is something to watch!

Watt plays LDE and has nothing to do with Martin. You and most here in SoFla really don't know crap or care about Football, do you?


Omar Kelly says that Watt will line up over Incognito. WTH is going on?

Posted by: oscar canosa | August 17, 2013 at 01:00 PM

Omar gets his info. from twin brother Jim Kelly so I'd listen to what he says canosa!

It looks like some of you dummies are too eager to fool yourselves.

How surprising, 1st time on blog today and the Queens Club still in full blown denial and delusion. Nothing new.............

SISSY KRISSY, remember this? When you see me refer to you as SISSY KRISSY, you can be 100% sure it's me.

re you your balls feeling a little moist right now? No problem, that fin4loser standing underneath licking them.......

Just saying........................................

Now that is a good post. Someone here actually knows what they are talking about.


Watt plays LDE

Posted by: oscar canosa | August 17, 2013 at 01:05 PM

He's playing Leonardo DaVinci Emerituss in theater or motion picture??

It's amazing how INFACTUATED the entire Queens Club seems to be with me.

Still in full blown denial and delusion. Anyone who is onto their bullsh-t must be me in different screen name.

What a gross disrespect to the other posters because Im not the only smart one here. But the QUEENS CLUB certainly thinks so.

But don't worry guys, if they're calling you YG, they're basically calling you SMART. You're onto their bs, so, take it as COMPLIMENT....

Just saying................................

Funny whenever someone makes a comment about you there you are right on cue?! You got some sort of software that gives you a single when one of your many screen names in written?? Also you make claims about others and their gay posting but seriously one would think your chatting it up from a prison cell or something until they read further and see what a PATHETIC TURD you really are living on a blog hanging on everybody's every word regarding you!


Fin4loser,

You should seriously hanging your screen name to:

"TWERP4LIFE".........


It seems much more becoming of you..............

Glad I could help.................................

Dead Bread,

Make an informed post (one you feel informed) and I'll take it appart as usual sending you back into your hole, you KNOW Daddy has spoken BIATCH!

Say what you will I have never used nother name and have been using my handle for about 5 Yrs. now with nobody ever having owned me to the point of shaming me into changing a chatline name, you truly are a pathetic loooooooooooseeeeeeeeer!

Offerdahl!

Sad that Offerdahl's career was cut short. Makes a good bagel for a goy.
