Miami Dolphins highlights from an eight and eight season
Former Dolphins Defensive Tackle Manny Fernandez Honor Roll Induction at Halftime — (Opening statement) – “I want to thank everybody that’s here today and I’m looking forward to this game being a Dolphin win, they love to come from behind. This is an honor I never expected or really thought four years ago, when I went into the Walk of Fame, that’s where it was going to end. But here I am. I have so many people to thank. I want to start with Mr. (Stephen) Ross for just putting together a spectacular week for me and the other alumni and members of the Dolphin family. It’s been a great week, this is a great day and I am extremely humbled to join all of the names up there in this Honor Roll. A very, very special day in my life, only second to January 14, 1973. I’m looking forward to the day when we’re going to be back there. Thank you all for being here today. A real quick special thanks to my wife Marcia, who after 41 years is still with me, here today, and has spent so many nights with ice packs, heating pads and massages and keeping me going week-to-week, love you.” L-r: Jarvis Landry, Brandon Gibson, Samson Satele, Brian Hartline, Terrence Fede, Jordan Kovacs, Ja’Wuan James, Jason Fox, Ryan Tannehill, T.J.
