    Better than 1972 RB's?

    This is Hypothetical people.....if Ricky does come Back and serve his 4 game suspension, do you think our current running backs can break the 1972 Dolphins record of having 2 running backs on the same team run for over 100 yards in the same game?? This happened three times in 1972. For example: in Novemeber when we play the Pats do you think Ronnie and Ricky can each run 100 yards??? Do you think they can even repeat a double hundred yard performance?? Keep in mind that the 1972 team had probably one of the best, if not the best, TRIO of running backs (Csonka,Kick,and Mercury Morris) in the NFL of all time!

    Get back to me on that after the season is over. Like mario88vega said, until we win a SB with them,the 1972 are will always be better.

    There is always speculation and what ifs...but I doubt Ricky would be one of two runners are on the Phins going for over 100 yards a game.

    maybe we should make sure Ricky is at least in the US and that Ronnie has taken an NFL snap or two before dreaming of double 100s.

    Even if your hypothetical situation pans out and both are on our roster, I doubt we would see such a performance against the Pat's Defense. Maybe the following week against Cleveland.

    Csonka, Kiick and Morris - are untouchable (for now). Power, finesse and speed. Defenses would bunch up to stop Csonka and Mercury would sweep around end for a 50-yard touchdown. Defenses would stack the line and Griese would throw to Kiick out of the backfield. Defenses would try EVERYTHING and couldn't stop Csonka. Those were the days!

    I doubt we'll see two Dolphins rush for 100 yards each in the same game this season.

    The Oline in 1972 was a helluva lot better than the Oline we currently have. Csonka, Morris and Kiick will always be heroes in my book, but they ran behind one of the best group of linemen to ever play.

    Exactly.... It starts with the line. Besides, Brown hasn't gained his first yard in the NFL yet.
