Memorable quote

After the Dolphins drafted both Sammie Smith and Louis Oliver in the first round in 1989, Joe Robbie was quoted as saying:  " This first round rivals the Bob Griese (1967) and Larry Csonka (`68) and Dan Marino (`83) selections.  It`s that exciting to us."
Louis Oliver turned out to be a pretty good safety, but never a great one.  And Sammie, well, there's another story entirely.
I guess it didn't quite work out as Robbie envisioned it.
