I saw two of those days. They were indeed glorious -- smart, relentless, physical football.
Amen. I don't think that people who didn't actually see it realize how physical the 72/73 Dolphins were. They absolutely dominated their opposition. I remember with great fondness the play on which Csonka was given an unnecessary roughness personal foul penalty because of the violence with which he laid a forearm smash on a defender while being tackled. We haven't seen that level of intense physical dominance around here in thirty-five years.
