    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.

    ive been a die hard since the 81 dolphin-charger classic playoff game. i used to dream what it would be like and how great it would feel...but ever since id say 2002, i have this dark, gloomy feeling that this team will never even reach the sb in my lifetime, let alone win it.

    Lets see how this offseason goes. I want to believe its coming, but I need to see that the push is coming. Tanny was a start, now its time to keep moving forward.

    Lamar Smith against the Colts in the playoffs? Ricky Williams in his prime? Those were pretty physical teams. They just were poorly coached.

    It's the reason the Marino years were such a disgusting insult. We abandoned everything that had proven successful in favor of a lazy lollipop finesse approach, and during an era where you could still be physical, in fact it was virtually required, given the monsters of the NFC. Even if Marino had made subsequent Super Bowls we would have been similarly toyed with and abused.

    I can't believe Shula is given credit for adapting, instead of ripped for ignorantly sabotaging. Other than opportunity to bet against the Dolphins successfully during those seasons, they held no value.

    I don't expect to see another Dolphins Super Bowl win, not with Ross and Dee determined to patch our current dump. You don't get rewarded for a mistake of that magnitude. The Canes and Dolphins will flounder, at least in terms of the ultimate prize, as long as this bland structure in a terrible location is their home. That's been my long held prediction and I see no reason to change.

    To make my post clear, all I can say to this post is Bill Arnsparger.
    Looking for a SB.

    See the following link for video of the Csonka hit that was flagged for unnecessary roughness: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SF0RaXR4nI
