I can do a few of these to kill time during the offseason. No cheatin'. Honor's System.

QUESTION #1: A Knack For Sacks


New HOF'er and sack-master Jason Taylor has the most sacks in a single season in DOLPHINS history (18.5). But his 2nd best sack season is only 7th best in DOLPHINS history (14.5). Cameron Wake's best sack season was with 15.0.

Name the 4 other DOLPHINS who had seasons in which they recorded 15.0 or more sacks. Name the one other player who had a 14.0 sack season.

They weren't keeping track of this stat in the 70's.

You got two of the four. And we're still looking for Mr. 14 sacks

Top 9 sacks seasons (14 or more)

18.5 J Taylor........(2002)

16.5 T Armstrong..(2000)

I'm not going to cheat by googling this.

First name that came to my mind was Joey Porter. His stint here was short, so he may get overlooked. Still, wouldn't be shocked if he was on this list.

Yes, Joey Porter is #2

His 17.5 sacks in 2008 were by far a career best. He retired 2 shy of 100.

My life of Dolphin fandom has seen 3 guys as stellar pass rushers; Taylor, Porter, and Wake.

The only other pass rusher I can think of who was good during that span was A. Ogunleye. I believe we had him for one season, he made the pro bowl, and then we traded him to the Bears for Marty Booker (if I am not mistaken).

Show me OGUNLEYE!

Ask, and ye shall receive.

Just looking for Mr. 14 sacks.

Hint: An early 90's player. Popular, but not thought of as a pass rusher

18.5 J Taylor........(2002)
17.5 J Porter........(2008)
16.5 T Armstrong..(2000)
16.0 D Betters.......(1983)
15.0 A Ogunleye....(2003)
15.0 C Wake.........(2012)
14.5 J Taylor........(2000)
14.0 xxxxxx..........(xxxx)
14.0 D Betters.......(1983)

Guess 1: B. Cox (he's a DL coach, so he had to be a solid pass rusher, right?)

Guess 2: T. Bowens (although he was more mid 90s)

Guess 3: J. Offerdahl
