Why do you post here instead of the Dolphins message board?

Pardon me Kastofsna, but refresh my memory but ...what was the Dolphins record for 2007? I forget. You're livin' in the past Marge. Quit livin' in the past!

And what does that have to do with perfection? See.. they won a game so they stopped perfection from happening just like the New England Patriots failed at their attempt also. Fact remains is that the Miami Dolphins are the only team with a perfect season. That's a singular team there. Even if the Dolphins had gone 0-16, they would not be alone in that category. Several teams have gone 0-16.

Why shouldn't Kas be proud of the Phins record? At least it's not the freaking COWBOYS bragging about it. It's a great record for that period in time, and they should be proud!!! I hope they hold that record until the TEXANS come along and take it away from them!!:)

You have every reason to be proud of that accomplishment. It's quite a feat & may never be equaled again, especially with a 16 game regular season. However, just because New England didn't go 19-0, it doesn't take anything away from their accomplishments this season. They missed it by just 39 seconds. You can't get much closer than that.

And, in an attempt at keeping you a little humble, Miami has won 2 Super Bowls in 5 trips while New England has won 3 in 6 trips to the Big Dance.

In a way I wanted a 19-0 team, then the next mark would be 20-0. It's possible....but 3 teams would have to go 16-0.

Edit: After thinking about it, scheduling might make it impossible for 3 16-0 teams to come out of the same conference for my scenario to happen.

Gma.... I would agree with you 100% if the Dolphins weren't such a$$es about it (See Mercury Morris).. Their arrogance rivals that of Cowgurls and Patriots fans, some may argue worse..

If the '72 Dolphins played the same Patriots that lost last night. My money would be on the Patriots - everytime...

Personally, I could really care less about the 72 "Phins. I'm just happy the Giants beat them so we wouldn't have to hear about 19-0 for the next decade. Let the old bastards have their undefeated season. Just as long as we don't have to hear it hyped every single day.

Now, let's get on with the off-season.:cool:

The next decade of Patriots crap would have been a lot better than the dolphins bittermen for the last 35 years... AND now we have to listen to their arrogant arses even longer (even though that '72 team couldn't hang with either the Giants OR the Patriots) because they will hype it and hype themselves every single day. :gun:

The 72 Dolphin guys are insufferable and their season wasn't even that impressive as Luv pointed out. They are worse than any team I have seen when it comes to talking trash.

I agree with y'all, they're a bunch of whiney kodgers, but their hype usually dies down after the undefeated team loses. If the Pats would've won, the hype would've been fresh to the media and would've been beat to death similiar to what we've had to deal with the past two weeks leading up to the SB. :gun:

from the day i was born until the day he died, my father would spin grand tales of the '72 Dolphins. he went to every game that season, and went to all three of those Super Bowls in the early '70s. we always went out to eat the night the last team lost (or the next night, whatever). it took me a while to really appreciate just how difficult it was to go undefeated in the NFL, but i think this season really hit that notion hard for me.

doesn't really matter if it happened before my time, a few of you guys who are younger than i criticized me for my Earl Campbell comment. tradition is tradition.

I just love that the 2007 Dolphins were one missed field goal away from being 0-16.

Until the day I die, I will probably never see the Dolphins as a winning franchise.

Why, you ask? Because they have never beaten the TEXANS!

Come on guys!! Whats wrong with a few OLD guys having a little fun living in the past? If they want to brag, let them!! 35 years is a VERY long time, and a lot has changed since then. Hell, that was back in my day and age of being YOUNGER, and I salute them for what they accomplished in 1972. Is it comparable to this day and age? Probably not, BUT, they deserve the right to brag about what they did so many years ago. JMO!! IF it had been the Oilers, you can bet your sweet tutu I would be bragging, just like Phins fans.

no clue, he talked more about his stay in New Orleans for the first game than the others. ironic since they lost that one. he was sitting behind a Cowboys fan who had a cowbell and was going nuts with it the entire game, and because of that he developed this deep hatred for the Cowboys. can't blame 'em.
