    24 years ago today

    It was 1985 and the Dolphins were in the Super Bowl.

    My 18th birthday.

    I have the game on DVD and I try to watch it once a year. On this day of course.

    Palo Alto was not kind to us that day folks. Neither was Roger Craig. Our last SB appearance unfortunately.

    To everyone here. We will get back there.

    You wouldn't understand of course but it is historic for me. If you could even put yourself in my place being it was my 18th birthday and all.

    I'm pretty damn sure I'm over it but the history is great to re-visit.

    that was a great, great season that ended horribly in basically a home game for San Fran. ... Miami's 84 team was one of the most dangerous offenses in NFL history ... and Marino's finest season...

    unfortunately, that defensive core that carried our heroes through the early 80s was old and tired.... they got beat down in some games down the stretch, including a superb shootout loss vs. the Raiders in the Orange Bowl... 14-2 season, 11-0 start, but we really had to regroup after losses at the Chargers and then LA and Marcus Allen..

    we didn't really stand a chance against an all-time great San Fran team... botched some opportunities in the first half... i remember SF had an early fumble that was clear on replay, and the refs kept it with SF .... we lost, 38-16, and only ran the ball 9 times the entire game against a SF defense that was running 6 DBs on first down.... i vividly remember lots of second half Marino sacks and pressures, and the fog rolling in ... it was a nightmare end to a storybook season...

    second most disappointing Dolphins loss of all-time for me... second only to the 1992-93 conference championship egg we layed at home to the Bisons...

    Russ Francis killed us at tight end. Roger Craig, Tyler and of course Montana were all at their best. Shame the Dolphins 'D' couldn't do it for Dan!
    All the way from Glasgow, Scotland. Go FIns!
