We have been hearing for 38 years that the 72 Dolphins were the greatest ever? True its hard to go 14-0 against any competition but the Dolphin schedule was laughable. Their division had no winning teams. The Dolphins amazingly played no playoff team all season? Incredible. Here is a list of the teams the Dolphins played in the 14 game schedule along with their final record.....
Chiefs 8-6 no playoffs, Oilers 1-13 Vikings 7-7 no playoffs Jets 7-7 no playoffs
Chargers 4-9-1 Bills 4-9-1 Colts 4-9-1 Bills 4-9-1 Patriots 3-11 Jets 7-7
Cardinals 4-9-1 Patriots 3-11 Giants 8-6 no playoffs Colts 4-9-1
Wow, I think thats amazing luck for the Dolphins. The Dolphins won it all again in 73 but the undefeated season is not against any playoff team? To say the great teams of the past who lost 2,3 or 4 games a year couldn't have went undefeated against a schedule as terrible as this is stupid. I mean the Dolphins beat two teams with a winning record all year? KC 8-6 and NY Giants 8-6? The combined record of their 1972 opponents was 68-122 .357 minus the ties? Suddenly the undefeated season doesn't look so great to this fan. Imagine playing 14 games without facing one playoff team? Amazing luck.
