    Barry Sanders to the dolphins??!

    Was watching a football life.

    Jimmy Johnson had a "Herschel Walker" type of trade.

    The lions wouldn't because they wanted to him to play for them or nobody.

    marino and sanders... Man we could've won't 2-3 SB's.

    always what ifs I know... Didn't know till now watching that phins were really
    pusing to get him

    Its a travesty what the Lions did to Sanders. Such a waste of a huge talent.

    Even if they had gotten Sanders, I doubt they would have won a Super Bowl. The lack of a running game was far from the only issue on those teams back then. How about the defense that was all-world when it didn't matter but completely crumbled any time it did?

    The running game would've hepled our defense out they wouldn't have been on the field as much. It definitely would've maximize our chances

    Barry was never a move the chains keep the D on the bench type of back. He would have obviously helped our cause but his contributions would have been far greater on the Offensive side.

    Barry would have really opened the field up for Dan, I mean how can a safety cover if he tears his ACL?

    Oh man, I remember this. Rumors were swirling about where he'd be playing, and talk of a trade with the Dolphins. I was so excited/anxious...then Barry made the decision to retire

    I wanted Barry here so bad. I was pissed when I heard that the lions wouldn't let him go.
    Marino-Sanders, like the sound of that. I really think we could've won at least 1 with Barry.
