    More 1972 trivia...

    What coach in 1971/2 said "I can't recall their names," in reference to the Miami Dolphins' defensive unit, "but they are a matter of great concern to us." ; and thus his foggy memory was translated into Miami's "No-Names Defense," a sobriquet considered by many as too colorless, too uninspired for a group of superior craftsmen.

    i cut and pasted most of that

    good guess, but no. Despite what '06 said, I did not remember this quote off the top of my head. :o
