You're right Denverdolfan. I stand corrected. The name was actually given to them by Dallas coach Tom Landry before Super Bowl 6. He was asked what he thought about the Dolphins defense. The first thing he said was, "Well I can't remember any of thier names..." The Dolphins lost, but the no name defense was born.
Morris was unreal, and Clayton got EVERY jump ball.
I am on NFLFILMS.com and was looking on the website.
I will try to be exact
go to NFLFILMS.COM
On the front page click on "special order catalog"
the next page should have a left hand column and second from the top is "recent catalog additions" click on that
then click on the Dolphin logo ( second from left)
It then lists Tape ID's and the years from 1966 forward. i don't know what these tapes have but this is the company that owns them so i would follow this.
none of the others have a price but
the last one is very interesting :
“The Legacy Begins”

I hope this helps--it's tough to describe the early dolphins--they truly were the definition of " a picture is worth a thousand words".
