Jason Cole is a Pro Football Hall of Fame selector who has covered the NFL since 1992, when he began as a Miami Dolphins beat reporter for the Sun-Sentinel. In addition to the Sentinel, he has worked for The Miami Herald, Yahoo! Sports, Bleacher Report, and Fansided, where he served as Editor in Chief. Cole has authored or co-authored seven books, including his most recent project, Elway: A Relentless Life. In The Tank, Jason shares some of his favorite Zach Thomas stories, reveals the events that led to Gene Atkins taking a shot at him in the Dolphins locker room, provides his side of the story of Jimmy Johnson’s expletive-filled rant following one of his articles, and how he reacted to it, and tries to justify why he is releasing a John Elway book on Dan Marino’s birthday.
For the past 30 years, Dave Hyde has covered sports for the South Florida Sun Sentinel, providing perspective on everything from Little League Baseball to Dwyane Wade lead championship runs with the Miami Heat, and of course, Miami Dolphins football. This year, Hyde was named one of the top 10 sports columnists in the nation by the Associated Press Sports Editors, his 16 th time receiving this recognition. He has also authored two books, including “Still Perfect!: The Untold Story of the 1972 Miami Dolphins." In The Tank, Dave discusses the early days of his sports writing career, standing up to coaching giant Don Shula, breaking Jimmy Johnson’s spirit in an unlikely way, and being greeted in the Dolphins locker room by a NSFW message from former Fins linebacker, Bryan Cox.
