              While i know it sucks ass that we are it seems doomed to live in the past and other than the Marino years (which obviously didn't net us a Championship) the perfect season & the 72/73 back-to-back SB wins are this organizations only true achievement..Without that, this franchise would be completely forgotten & totally irrelevant..That being said, IMO it can't be overstated as to how great an achievement it was; there are many who don't even realize that in those days there was no such thing as homefield advantage throughout the playoffs and even as the regular season's undefeated champs, we had to go on the road to Three Rivers Stadium and face the mighty Steelers on their home turf in the AFC Championship game...

              Here's some kudos from PFT (which is amazing in its own right)


              NFL morning after: The ’72 Dolphins deserve to celebrate

              If the 1972 Dolphins celebrated yesterday following the Panthers’ loss to the Falcons, I say good for them.
              Members of the ’72 Dolphins contend that their celebrations have been overstated, and they don’t really get together for champagne every year when the NFL’s last remaining undefeated team loses. But what we saw yesterday when the Panthers fell from 14-0 to 14-1 with a loss to the Falcons is a good reminder of just how special a team the ’72 Dolphins were.
              It’s really, really hard to finish an NFL season undefeated. The Panthers looked like they were the team with the best chance to do it since the Patriots came thisclose in 2007, but yesterday they simply had an off day while the Falcons had a good day, and Atlanta won 20-13. That’s the thing about life in the NFL: You’re going to have some off days, and your opponents are going to have good days. The gap between a very good team like Carolina and a mediocre team like Atlanta is really not that great, which means that if you’re not playing your best every single week, you’re going to lose at some point.
              Unless you’re the ’72 Dolphins.
              The ’72 Dolphins weren’t the only undefeated, untied champions in the history of the NFL because they never had a day like the Panthers had yesterday. The ’72 Dolphins were the only undefeated, untied champions in the history of the NFL because even when they had bad games like the Panthers had yesterday, they found a way to win. They were an incredible football team that always found a way to win. In Week 3 of the 1972 season, the Dolphins trailed 14-6 in the fourth quarter at Minnesota. They won 16-14. In Week 6, the Dolphins trailed the Bills 13-7 at halftime. They won 24-23. In Week 10, the Dolphins trailed the Jets 24-21 in the fourth quarter. They won 28-24. In the playoffs, the Dolphins trailed the Browns 14-13 in the fourth quarter. They won 20-14.
              You can argue that the ’72 Dolphins weren’t the best team in NFL history precisely because they were involved in a lot of close games. The ’72 Dolphins weren’t a dominant team like the ’85 Bears, a wrecking crew that crushed the opposition, but the ’72 Dolphins were the only team in NFL history that found a way to win, every single week.
              That’s a special thing, and a hard thing to do, as the Panthers found out yesterday. If the ’72 Dolphins want to celebrate their status as a unique team in the history of football, let them celebrate.

                Well, happy belated birthday (I turn 56 in two days!!!)....I always wonder what it must feel like to be a fan of this team too young to have lived through the great years,, not sure i would've been able to hold out this long if i hadn't of witnessed the team in its glory....

                  I think Obama was the one who flubbed that 'pass' after the missed FG and prevented us from being the only team ever to shut another team out in a SB! DAMN HIM! ALWAYS SCREWING SHIT UP!!!!!
