  • La stagione 1972 dei Miami Dolphins è stata la settima della franchigia e la terza nella National Football League. I Dolphins sono l'unica squadra della storia della National Football League aver vinto il Super Bowl dopo non aver perso nemmeno una partita. La squadra fu guidata dall'allenatore Don Shula e giocatori degni di menzione furono Bob Griese, Earl Morrall e Larry Csonka (tra i molti). I Dolphins terminarono la stagione regolare con un record di 14–0 e vinsero tutte le tre gare di playoff, incluso il Super Bowl VII contro i Washington Redskins, finendo con un bilancio complessivo di 17–0. Questa squadra rimane l'unica a non aver perso o pareggiato alcuna partita dalla prima gara al Super Bowl. Inoltre, i Dolphins portarono la loro striscia a 18 vittorie consecutive (tra stagione regolare e playoff), prima di perdere nella settimana 2 della stagione 1973. Durante questa stagione, Bob Griese si ruppe una caviglia nella gara della settimana 5 contro i San Diego Chargers dopo aver subito un sack dal defensive tackle Ron East e dal defensive end Deacon Jones. Fu sostituito dal veterano Earl Morrall per il resto della stagione regolare. Griese tornò in campo nella finale della AFC contro i Pittsburgh Steelers e poi partì come titolare nel Super Bowl VII. Dal lato delle corse, i running back Larry Csonka e Mercury Morris divennero i primi compagni a superare le mille yard corse in una stagione. Paul Warfield guidò i ricevitori ricevendo 29 passaggi di oltre 20 yard di media l'uno. La offensive line includeva i futuri membri della Hall of Fame Jim Langer e Larry Little e il Pro Bowler Norm Evans. La difesa del '72 dei Dolphins, chiamata "No-Name Defense" poiché il notevole attacco di Miami riceveva molta più pubblicità, fu la migliore della lega quell'anno. Era guidata dal linebacker Nick Buoniconti, dal defensive end Bill Stanfill, dal defensive tackle Manny Fernandez e dalle safety Dick Anderson e Jake Scott. In totale nove giocatori, Csonka, Morris, Warfield, Little, Evans, Buoniconti, Stanfill, Anderson e Scott furono convocati per il Pro Bowl e Morrall, Stanfill e Anderson furono inseriti nel First-team All-Pro.

  • The 1972 Miami Dolphins season was the team’s seventh season, and third season in the National Football League. The 1972 Dolphins are the only National Football League team to win the Super Bowl with a perfect season. The undefeated campaign was led by coach Don Shula and notable players Bob Griese, Earl Morrall, and Larry Csonka. The 1972 Dolphins went 14–0 in the regular season and won all three post-season games, including Super Bowl VII against the Washington Redskins, to finish 17–0. The team remains the only NFL team to complete an entire season undefeated and untied from the opening game through the Super Bowl (or championship game). The closest team to repeating this feat was the 2007 New England Patriots, who recorded the most wins in a season in NFL history by going 18–0 before losing to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII (the Dolphins won 18 straight through and until the first week of the 1973 season). The 2007 Patriots were able to record a better regular season than the 1972 Dolphins because the NFL lengthened it to 16 games in 1978. Besides the 1972 Dolphins and 2007 Patriots, the only other team to ever complete the regular season undefeated and untied is the Chicago Bears, who accomplished the feat in both 1934 and 1942. Both of those Bears teams however failed to win the NFL Championship Game. During the 1972 season, Bob Griese’s ankle was broken in Week 5 as he was sacked by San Diego Chargers defensive tackle Ron East and defensive end Deacon Jones. He was replaced by veteran Earl Morrall for the rest of the regular season. Griese returned to the field as a substitute in the final regular season game against the Baltimore Colts and then also relieved Morrall for the second half of the AFC Championship game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers and then started for Miami in Super Bowl VII. On the ground, running backs Larry Csonka and Mercury Morris became the first teammates to each rush for 1,000 yards in a season. Paul Warfield led the receivers, averaging over 20 yards per catch on 29 receptions. The offensive line included future Hall of Fame members Jim Langer and Larry Little and Pro Bowler Norm Evans. The 1972 Dolphins defensive unit, called the No-Name Defense because Miami’s impressive offense received much more publicity, as well as Cowboys coach Tom Landry coining the phrase in an interview, was the league’s best that year. It was led by linebacker Nick Buoniconti, end Bill Stanfill, tackle Manny Fernandez, and safeties Dick Anderson and Jake Scott. In all, nine players—Csonka, Morris, Warfield, Little, Evans, Buoniconti, Stanfill, Anderson and Scott—were selected to the Pro Bowl, and Morrall, Stanfill and Anderson were named 1st team All-Pro. On August 20, 2013, four decades after their accomplishment, President Barack Obama hosted the 1972 Dolphins, noting that they "never got their White House visit". (en)
