Finsiders Awards: Best Play Of 2013
Posted By The Finsiders On February 13, 2014 @ 3:08 pm In Football | 4 Comments
After handing out the awards for Most Outstanding Offensive Player  and Most Outstanding Defensive Player , it’s time to select the Dolphins’ best play of the 2013 season. The awards committee consists of writers for Dolphins.com, Dolphins.com/Espanol and TheFinsiders.com, the on-air hosts for The Finsiders daily show, and most importantly, you, the fans.
Let’s take a look at the nominees for the Dolphins’ Best Play Of 2013:
Andy Cohen: Cameron Wake’s safety against Cincinnati was arguably the most electric moment of the season. It won the game and reminded everyone how special a player Wake really is.
Andy Kent: While both of Charles Clay’s touchdowns at Pittsburgh and against San Diego were of the highlight-reel variety, Cameron Wake coming up with the game-winning play in overtime on Halloween Night in front of a national television audience — and doing something that had only been done once before in NFL history — has to top them all.
Alain Poupart: Cameron Wake’s safety — There’s simply no way to ignore a game-winning sack … on national television no less!
Raul Striker: There is something special about a play that literally ends a game. Unlike a walk-off home run, that occurs quite frequently, Cameron Wake’s sack/safety on Halloween Night was only the third time in the 92-year history of the NFL that an overtime game ended with a safety. Miami was in the midst of a four game losing streak after starting the year with three consecutive victories and desperately needed this one.
Finsiders Analyst Selections
The crew was split on the vote for the award, which took place live on the program on FOX Sports Florida this evening . Former Dolphins CB Sam Madison and Finsiders Comment Center anchor Tristin Jones selected Michael Thomas’ game-sealing interception against the Patriots. Former Dolphins guard Keith Sims went with a Sims of course; Dion Sims and his one-handed game-winning touchdown against the Falcons. Meanwhile, Finsiders anchor John Congemi voted for Charles Clay’s tremendous touchdown catch and run against the Chargers. Clearly, this was an award in which all of the nominees were very deserving of the honor. However, the fans in the live chat at Dolphins.com voted for Wake’s game-ending safety against the Bengals, which was the clear consensus of the writers and the fans on this page; thus giving Cam Wake the award for his fantastic play on Halloween night.
