    Didn't they finish the season #1 in offense and #1 in defense?

    He was replying to hellsapoppin, that said Miami is the only team to go to three straight Super Bowls.

    Joe Robbie bought my family's ranch near Ennis Montana. He had a bunch of adopted children I am thinking like in the 7-9 range of adopted kids. Rumour was they were a bunch of alcoholics. When they sold the ranch it had this big fountain of a dolphin on it that had got all rusty and the kids were all fighting about who got the fountain. It ended up being pretty ugly as the kids were trying to squeeze each other for than their share of the inheritance including the rusty fountain.

    marino first picked #13 because it was the very last number available for his first little league baseball team that his dad coached.

    The '72 dolphins were #1 in offense and defense both in points and yards for each category.

    The dolphins have the highest winning percentage ever in the NFL (.583) for both reg season games and reg season-post season combined. actually, after the '85 season the dolphins winning% was nearly 65%.

    Before the 2004 season, the dolphins held the longest ongoing streak of non-losing seasons (.500 or better) at 15 straight.

    At the start of the 2007 season the dolphins hadn't had back to back losing seasons since 1969.
