    MERGED-Zach Thomas-Dolphin for Life ?/Zach rules

    Ethan J. Skolnick has a nice column about our star MLB.

    http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/football/pro/dolphins/sfl-spskolnick16dec16,0,1314610.column?coll=sfla-dolphins-front

    We have had some great MLBs throughout our history.Nick Buonoconti,John Offerdahl come to mind.How does Zach compare to those two and how much longer do you think Zach can play at a high level?

    In your opinion will he play out his career as a Dolphin or do you think he should be traded ?

    Do you think he will get to play in a SB before he is done ? Do you think he will make it into the Dolphin Ring of Honor and do you think he has a chance to make it into the Pro Football HOF ?

    I am torn. Here are some things I have considered:

    1. On on hand, as long as Zach can lead the team in tackles, I'd like to keep him but as long as he leads the team in tackles, he has big trade potential.

    2. His age might work against getting a trade value that is equal or greater than his current value as a player but he will eventually reach a point where his age will certainly diminsh his value for trade.

    Those considerations to me, are a wash as they balance out. This is my deciding factor:

    3. Zach is the brains of the defense and JT is the heart. Right now, the defense has a chemistry and balance probably not see in the past 10 years in the NFL. I think it would be a shame to tear that chemistry apart in the slim hopes of getting a slight advantage in the near future.

    Zach should stay a Dolphin until he retires and the same goes for Jason...

    By stats alone .... ZACH will probably go down as the greatest LB in PHINS history ...
    I believe Offerdahl was better, but his career was cut short ...
    Buonoconti, of course, won SBs .....

    Zach will not be traded ... and he will start and finish next year as the starting MLB ... all bets are off beyond that due to potential injury, age, FA signings, etc ... I can only 'hope' he gets a ring, but using next year as his likely last .... it doesn't seem likely at this point

    He should make it into the PHIN ROH, along with JT when he is done == no doubt there .... as for the HOF, it could be questionable .... it depends upon how much longer he plays [beyond next year] and who he is competing against at LB for selection .... ie, Ray Lewis, etc ... life isn't fair -- and for the HOF, it will most definately be a thing of 'timing' ...
