”As for the 1972 Dolphins, I don’t take joy in the fact the Patriots lost – period,” said Jim Mandich, the tight end on the 17-0 team. ”But I do relish and savor the fact that there has only been one unbeaten team in the history of the NFL, and it is the 1972 Miami Dolphins.”
Seriously, 1972 dudes: after 35 years, it’s time to give it a rest. The Patriots won 18 in a row counting the AFC Championship, while you Dolphin jags had to win 17 including the Super Bowl. Times have changed.
