About The Miami Dolphins
Miami joined the AFL in 1965 and began to play in 1966. In 1970, Don Shula replaced George Wilson as head coach and that same year the Dolphins joined the NFL
Don Shula had coached the Miami Dolphins for most of the franchise’s career; he is also the winningest coach in NFL history. While under Shula, the Dolphins only had two loosing seasons out of an amazing twenty-six seasons as head coach.
Miami was a successful team in the 1970s, with quarterback Bob Griesi and wide receiver Paul Warfield. Their 1971 AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Miami Dolphins was the longest game in NFL history lasting eighty-two minutes and forty seconds. They went on to play in Super Bowl VI where they met with the tough Dallas Cowboys who would end up defeating the Dolphins 24 to 3.
1972 would live on forever, as the Miami Dolphins did the impossible and had a perfect season all the way through the Super Bowl, led by quarterback Bob Griesi and Earl Morrall who shared the passing responsibilities. Running backs Larry Csonka and Mercury Morris became the first teammates to rush for more than a thousand yards each that season. The offensive line was made up of Jim Langer, Larry Little, and Bob Kuechenberg. The defense was called the no name defense, even though the defense was the best ranked in the NFL that year. The offense had all the publicity.
In 1973, the Dolphins were again on top of their league having won twelve games and again made it to the playoffs. In fact the only years in the 70’s that the Dolphins didn’t make it to the playoffs were 1975, 1976, and 1977. Out of those three years, the only loosing season was in 1976 when they finished the season with six wins and eight losses, putting them in 3rd place in the AFC East.
David Woodly was replaced during the middle of the 1983 Season by rookie sensation Dan Marino who took the team to win 1st place in the AFC East. Dan Marino also won Rookie of the Year.
During the mid 80’s, Marino went on to set some of the most impressive single records in the NFL like records for most yards (5,084), most touchdown passes (48), and completions (362). They would go on to the 1984 Super Bowl XIX but lose to the San Francisco 49ers.
The first losing season since joining the NFL came in 1988, when they finished the season with six wins and ten losses.
In the 90’s they were back on top. In 1996, Dan Marino broke the all time career passing record formerly held by Fran Tarkenton for 48,841 yards, 352 touchdowns, and 3,913 completions. The Dolphins finished the season with nine wins and seven losses.
The Dolphins would continue their winning streak throughout the 90’s, however, in 1999 the first game back from an injury, Dan Marino had to suffer through the worst game of his life and ultimately it would be the worst game of NFL history in a playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Dolphins would be humiliated 62 to 7. This would be the last year that Dan Marino played.
In 2000 and 2001, the Dolphins finished the year with an eleven wins and five losses earning them a seed in the Wild Card Games. But since 2001, they have not seen a postseason game.
