OT: Any Unbeaten Teams VS '72 Dolphins

Well, which unbeaten team (so far) has the best shot at giving those Dolphins from '72 a run for their money? I don't believe it's Indy again this year.

Cincinnati is the best, so I'll go with them. Not sure they'd be able to take the 72 Dolphins though.

72 Redskins with Jurgensen at QB! (Another quarterback controversy!)
(We were the favorite, even with Kilmer.) (And, for those who consider preseason important, the 72 Dolphins last (only?) loss was to the Redskins in preseason.)

Re: OT: Any Unbeaten Teams VS '72 Dolphins

none of the teams will do it, and the bengals definitely wont do it. look at that division! they have to play the steelers once more and the ravens 2 times!

the best chance is the seahawks. i dont like them, but lets get real. they have a horrible division still and are a pretty good football team

Nobody. There is nobody with the schedule and fire power to do it.

"Bears?"

---I don't think the Bears will do it...although I do think they are much better than last years Bears team with a healthy Grossman all year. They host Seattle this weekend, and have a 3-game road trip in November to the Giants, Jets, and Patriots. Other than that their schedule is pretty soft. Minnesota looks tough but they've already beaten them in Minnesota. Detroit and Green Bay are terrible...they also play Buffalo, Arizona, SF, Miami, St. Louis, and Tampa. Nothing too scary there but they'll probably drop at least a couple games somewhere...especially if Grossman gets hurt.

Re: OT: Any Unbeaten Teams VS '72 Dolphins

None. The Colts from last year had the best chance in a long time. They're not as good as they were last year without a dominant RB, the defending champs look horrible and no one else this year looks AS good as either of those teams from last year.

The Bears have found some offense and should contend for the NFC, but they're nowhere near capable of going undefeated.

The Seahawks looked worse than last year BEFORE the Madden curse kicked in.

The Panthers aren't as good and Smith is not healthy.

The Giants are hugely disappointing.

The Eagles are better than last year but not as good as their SB year.

The Cowboys implosion has begun.

The Bucs lost their mediocre QB and now have a rookie QB to lead them to the playoffs. Ha, yeah right.

Falcons look worse than last year.

The Saints look good so far and only their weak division will let them make the playoffs.

Vikings...don't impress me.

Packers...nope.

The Redskins will turn their season around and compete with 'Da Bears.

Re: OT: Any Unbeaten Teams VS '72 Dolphins

I'd say Bears based on their schedule. They have some easssssssy games mixed with 3 or 4 tough ones. If anyone has a chance I'd say them based on that alone...


but realistically, no one is this year.

Indy if anyone, but I don't think it's going to happen this year. The Bears can't survive the playoffs.

Who (other than the Skins) are going to challenge them in the playoffs?

(look at my previous post with an NFC rundown...)

Any of today's teams would have a better than average chance to beat the 1972 Dolphins. The reason is the size of their respective Offensive and Defensive lines.

The 1972 Dolphins relied heavily on their running game (Larry Czonka) get help get their passing game moving. The passing game in 1972 was based on a 5 - 7 step drop by the QB. Today most QBs are using a 3 step drop. Today's game moves faster and the lines are much larger.

I think the 1972 Dolphins would lose the contest just based on the fight in the trenches. Compariing a 1972 team to a 2006 team is comparing apples to oranges. But that does not take away anything from the accomplishment of the 1972 Dolphins.

Indy, at a minimum. Gotta win the big game, too.
