The Most Underrated Player in Miami Dolphins History Is….Peyton Manning Jersey
For ten years, the Miami Dolphins have relied on this player every Sunday. He has rarely, if ever, disappointed. He plays with heart. He plays with pride.Will Fuller Jersey He plays with the spirit you want from the 53 men on your football team.
Yes, I am talking about Miami Dolphins' long snapper, John Denney.
John Denney is currently the longest tenured player on the Miami Dolphins. He was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2005, after graduating from BYU.Julian Edelman Jersey His first season with the team was also the inaugural season for Nick Saban. Yes, Denney has lasted through Nick Saban, Cam Cameron, Tony Sparano, Joe Philbin, and now into the Adam Gase era.Artie Burns Jersey
Not one of those coaches thought to cut Denney. He is Mr. Automatic. I would like all of you loyal Dolphins' fans to think back as far as you can, and try to remember a time in the last decade that the team has had a botched snap.
John Denney really should have been elected to every Pro Bowl in the past 8-10 seasons. Unfortunately,Steve Smith Sr Jersey he has only been selected twice (2010 and 2012). While the game is a popularity contest among fan bases, seeing who can cast the most votes, it is still a shame that Denney isn't a household name.
There was a time in which John Denney was not a household name in Sun Life Stadium, even among those who run game day operations for the team. In NFL stadiums,Josh Doctson Jersey fans will be entertained by various pieces of video content shown on the jumbotrons during media timeouts. In this case, the game was a contest between two players to see who could win an arcade game, each representing a section that had the chance to win a gift card.
The match? Andrew Franks VS. John Denney.Von Miller Jersey What did the team caption the video on the jumbotron?
Andrew Franks VS. John DENNY. Yes, they misspelled the name of the longest tenured player currently on the team. I have never had less faith in this franchise than I did at that moment.
Last season,Jack Conklin Jersey the team also created a list of the top fifty players in their history as a celebration of their golden anniversary this past season. Who was not included in this list? You guessed it, John Denney.
Yeah, Chad Pennington had one pretty great season with the team, but does he really deserve a spot over Denney?Rob Gronkowski Jersey Chad Pennington made mistakes. He threw interceptions. He fumbled the ball. John Denney has never made a mistake. Even if he has, he's probably the only one who noticed.
This past season,Ben Roethlisberger Jersey at age 37, Denney was still gunning downfield making tackles. He made 3 during 2015, putting his career total at 40. In 2012, Denney actually forced two fumbles. That ranks him ahead of Dion Jordan, who has had 0 forced fumbles in his career.
Denney is also currently running a streak of 176 consecutive starts. That ranks second among active players. If he starts every game for two more full seasons, he will finish his career in the top ten players of all time for consecutive starts.
