A fourth-round draft choice by Washington in 2001, Sage Rosenfels was traded to Miami prior to the 2002 season and spent four years with the Dolphins, sharing a quarterback room with the likes of Jay Fiedler, Ray Lucas, Brian Griese, A.J. Feeley, and Gus Frerotte during that stretch. Rosenfels’ career would span 11 NFL seasons, but it was his stunning performance in leading the Fins back from a 21-point fourth quarter deficit against the Buffalo Bills in 2005 that Miami fans remember him most for.
In The Tank, Sage reflects upon his Miami Dolphins tenure (7:01) and takes us back to that epic fourth quarter comeback over the Bills in ’05 (12:01). In the wake of Tua Tagovailoa’s six TD performance at Baltimore this year, Sage also recalls his own four TD fourth quarter (21:19), explains how impactful it was to be surrounded by the likes of Kyle Shanahan and Mike McDaniel after signing with the Houston Texans in 2006 (30:26), and provides phenomenal insight on their offensive philosophies (43:44). Sage goes on to detail the life of a back-up quarterback in the NFL (52:12), and attacks our Fish Tank Two-Minute Drill like he was back in command of a huddle (1:07:30).
