Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

 

A Georgia native, Randy McMichael was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the fourth round of the 2002 NFL Draft following a standout career with the University of Georgia Bulldogs. McMichael quickly made an impact in Miami, hauling in a 16-yard touchdown pass from Jay Fiedler in his first regular season game. In five seasons with the Dolphins, McMichael started every game and set franchise records at the tight end position with 283 receptions for 3,096 yards. He caught 18 touchdowns for the team as well. McMichael also spent three seasons with the St. Louis Rams and the final three seasons of his career with the San Diego Chargers. Currently, he co-hosts the midday talk show on 92.9 The Game in Atlanta. In The Tank, Randy recalls becoming the first Dolphins player to wear number 81 after our very own OJ McDuffie, describes what it was like to play with Ricky Williams, makes his plea for Zach Thomas to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, shares his true feelings for Cam Cameron, and provides unique perspective on a host of former Dolphins quarterbacks including Jay Fiedler, Gus Frerotte, John Beck and AJ Feeley.

**We apologize for the technical challenges we experienced with this episode. The sound quality does not meet our standards, but Larry's stories are as fantastic as ever**

 

Larry Seiple was a seventh-round draft choice of the Miami Dolphins in 1967 and went on to play 11 seasons with the team as a punter, halfback and tight end. Seiple led the Dolphins with 577 receiving yards and 5 TD receptions in 1969, but he is best remembered for his fake punt in the 1972 AFC Championship game against the Pittsburgh Steelers when his 37-yard scamper set up Miami’s first score and propelled the team to a 21-17 victory and keeping the Perfect Season alive. Following his playing career, Seiple spent 20 years coaching in the NFL, including 12 seasons (1988-1999) with the Dolphins. In The Tank, “Seip” recalls the early years with the Dolphins playing for George Wilson, the dramatic shift that took place when Don Shula took the reigns in Miami, reveals who called the fake punt that has defined his playing career, shares which Dolphins Super Bowl Champion he feels was the better team, and sheds some light on what it was like to coach a young OJ McDuffie.

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

 

Miami native, Randal Hill, stayed home after a standout career at Miami Killian High School to help the University of Miami capture National Championships in 1987 and 1989. Two years later, the Miami Dolphins made Hill their first-round draft choice, selecting him number 23 overall in the 1991 Draft. Randal’s eight-year NFL career included three seasons in Miami (1991, 1995, 1996), including the final year in which he was reunited with his college coach, Jimmy Johnson. In The Tank, “Thrill” discusses the pressure and prestige of playing for the University of Miami in the late 1980s, his move from high school cornerback to college receiver, his infamous touchdown and celebration during the 1991 Cotton Bowl against Texas, rooming with OJ on the road, life as a federal agent, and through it all, the importance of family.

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

 

Following a standout career at the University of Wisconsin, Chris Chambers left his snow boots and winter coats behind, as he became the Miami Dolphins second-round draft choice in 2001. Chambers averaged 18.4 yards per reception and hauled in seven TDs as a rookie, setting the tone for things to come. Over the next five years, Chris became one of the Dolphins most important and productive offensive players before being traded to the San Diego Chargers in 2007. In The Tank, Chris fondly recalls his first trip to South Beach with former Badgers teammate and Dolphins first-round pick, Jamar Fletcher, shares exactly what Nick Saban said to inspire his 2005 Pro Bowl season, explains why he agreed with Cam Cameron regarding the Ginn family, and challenges all doubters who left him off of their Top 5.

Jason Taylor: Change The Narrative

Jason Taylor: Change The Narrative

August 5, 2019

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.

The Best of The Fish Tank: Volume II

The Best of The Fish Tank: Volume II

June 10, 2019

Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep

 

Season One comes to a close as OJ and Seth reflect on more classic Fish Tank moments. There is no reason to dig through your archives when the guys have done it for you! Do you remember when Ronnie Brown had to carry Ricky Williams? And we don’t mean during a game! How about Troy Stradford taking on Bruce Smith, or Louis Oliver recalling a special gift Bryan Cox prepared for a deserving Bills fan? Who can forget David Bowens and Daryl Gardener inviting some friends over for a workout or Vonnie Holliday’s retelling of a gamble that did not pay off for Jason Taylor. Listen as Patrick Surtain explains why a lost freestyle rap battle to Morlon Greenwood wasn’t what it seemed, or former PR man Harvey Greene sharing a moment with Coach Shula that he will never forget. Speaking of Coach Shula, Mark Clayton details the sequence of events that ultimately changed his relationship with The Don forever and Joe Rose shares why it’s wise to drive your own vehicle when going out on the town with Clayton and fellow Marx Brother, Mark Duper. And no “Best Of” is complete without Channing Crowder absolutely blowing your mind. With OJ, Seth, and Prec taking a few weeks off before the launch of Season Two, this recap is a must listen for newcomers and Fish Tank faithful alike!
