    1972 Dophins, the only NFL team to ever to win the NFL Championship without losing a game all season. There can be no aurgument that any other team was better; '78 Steelers lost 2 games, '07 NE lost the big one (choke!), '85 Bears lost to Marino, '98 Broncos lost 2 games. Every team that won a championship tasted defeat except the '72 Dolphins.

    Sure the teams today under todays rules might beat those Dolphins but the fact remains, Miami 17-0!!!

    The Colts should have gone undefeated last year, but they pulled their starters against the Jets, thus sending the Jets to the play-offs, only to beat them there.

    The fans here in Indy were PISSED OFF that they didn't try to go undefeated for the season.

    Oh well.

    You have to play who you are scheduled to play and you have to show up every week. In the playoffs there are no cream puffs but winning teams, at least back then. The playoffs were not diluted with extra wildcard teams.

    The '72 Dolphins would get run off the field by the 2010 Lions.

    Sure they were pissed, but it was all academic because a Purdue Grad stepped up and kicked their ass in the big one!
