The general outpouring of affection in the wake of Seau’s death is a testament to the way he connected with people on and off the football field.
In the Dolphins’ 3-4 defense, there is arguably no position more glamorous than outside linebacker. Last season, Miami’s biggest defensive standout was Cameron Wake, who unleashed himself on the rest of the NFL by recording 14 sacks in just his second season in the league. On the other side, rookie Koa Misi collected 4.5 sacks and even scored a touchdown, thanks to the recovery of a Brett Favre (remember him?) fumble in the endzone Week 2.
Chuck Fusca (Facebook): Was there ever a rift between the offensive and defensive players during your era because you felt like they weren’t keeping up with you guys on defense?
Sam Madison: Well, there could have been, but just the way that our defense was built and the type of players that we had, we thought as a unit, that we could beat anybody.

November 30, 1997: Miami at Oakland
At this point of my rookie season I had recovered from my injury and was playing well on special teams. Playing against one of the best WRs in the NFL in Tim Brown, I got beat for a TD early in the game.
It was announced today that Dolphins defensive lineman Randy Starks has been added to the AFC’s Pro Bowl team, in place of Steelers lineman Brett Keisel, who is getting ready to play in Super Bowl XLV. It is the first Pro Bowl appearance for Starks, as he becomes the fourth Dolphin honored with a Pro Bowl selection this year, joining tackle Jake Long (who is not playing due to injury), LB Cameron Wake, and long-snapper John Denney.
The Dolphins were back at practice after a couple days off today, looking forward and getting ready for Sunday’s road test at Baltimore. After practice, head coach Tony Sparano met with the media to discuss some of the things that went right against the Bengals as well as the upcoming game against the Ravens. Of course, outside of football, there was big news in the locker room, with CB Nolan Carroll’s mother, Jennifer, becoming the new Lieutenant Governor-elect in the state of Florida.
The Dolphins defense has gotten a boost from the return of linebacker Channing Crowder from injury. He has started the past two games at Green Bay and at home against Pittsburgh after being inactive the first four games of the season while recovering from a groin injury.
Channing is now in his sixth season with the Dolphins after being drafted in the third round back in 2005 out of the University of Florida.
