With the Cardinals loss last night, the 1972 Dolphins remain the only perfect team in history.  

It's sad that this is all we have to hang our hats on these days.

Cheers to AJ Green for not turning around to see if the ball was coming at him.

One more year down.  It'd be nice to die with this record in tact.

Could they have called Defensive Pass Interference on that coverage if they wanted to? It looked to me like both guys had their arms around each other so it kinda balanced out?

PI calls are always open for interpretation but the fact that he didn't even turn around while the CB caught it like a pass to me makes it a right no call. The only way that happened is if.......no, there is no excuse. Even if the play is not designed for you, you are aware that you are a receiving option at all times anyway. I have no idea what he was thinking.

Dave, I wish you a very long, healthy, and happy life.  But I agree.  I hope the record is in tact when I die as well.  Since I'm 57, my odds are better than yours, youngster.  Smiley 

Side note, I'm glad that Coach Shula died with the Perfect Season in tact and his all time Wins record in tact as well.  He took such pride in those two records and it would have been a shame if either of them fell while he was still alive.

Well, maybe the upcoming 50th anniversary of that perfect season will prove to be an example of exquisite symmetry. A guy can dream, can't he? And to think that if the '73 Dolphins hadn't lost the first game of that season that they'd be undefeated twice.

I hope you didn't make that wish on a Monkeys paw.

I think they actually also lost in Week 13 to the Colts.  But it was still a pretty amazing back to back years in 1972 and 1973.   A lot of the players from the Dolphins back then have said over the years that the team was actually a better and more dominant team in 1973 than they were in 1972.  When you look at each week of the 1973 season, I can see their point.  They dominated most of the games that year during the regular season and absolutely dominated their opponents in their 3 playoff (including Super Bowl) games.

Not quite as catastrophic as Dave dying only moments before the Jets going 20-0 next season.

While I'm glad it remains it has become very hard to celebrate this almost 50 year old accomplishment. This would mean more to me if we had other more current things to cheer about.
