Why hasn't the story of the 1972 Dolphins been put to film yet? It has blockbuster written all over it. You have the drama of Griese getting hurt and Morrall stepping in and not losing a game, only to be replaced; the comedy that can be written into any sports movie, and the comraderie and courage of the team's strive for perfection.

There are so many major players, not to mention Shula, that you could assemble an all-star cast along the lines of "L.A. Confidential" or "True Romance". There's probably not an actor in hollywood that wouldn't want in on this project. Me and some friends have already begun assembling a "Fantasy cast" and it's gotten me excited. I WANT this movie made. How about you? Feel free to post a cast too.

But you would know how it ends. Maybe they can throw a twist in and make them loose the Super Bowl.

I agree with slappy... It'll never get made because only Dolphins fans will watch it... There's no huge hurdle they have to jump. they're the '72 Dolphins and for all intents and purposes they were the greatest football team to ever play.

Losing your starting QB for the majority of the season isn't a major hurdle?

maybe have Don Shula playing golf and go get his golf ball out of the whole and gets sucked town to toon land and have to coach bugs bunny and his friends win the every football game...

the same can be said for a couple teams...baltimore ravens [Tony Banks went down then Trent Dilfer led them to a superbowl] St Louis Rams [Trent Green went down then Kurt Warner led them to a superbowl]

I'm sure I don't have to explain why the Dolphins losing Griese and having the season they had was 100x more special than what the Rams and Ravens accomplished.

Perfection is not easY to achieve.There is a lot of groundwork to be done first.

Shula built the team from the ground up.The greatest coach of his time.

The game passed him by in later years but that doesnt take away from what he accomplished.

If this does get made into a movie I am afraid it will be done by ESPN.

They should make a movie about Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders and have a few shower scenes and what not. Goo times.
