    Interesting Tweet series, forgotten Dolphins.

    This was 1st one I saw:



    Definitely a Dolphin I didn't know.

    Do you guys have any forgotten favourites?

    Week 1 in 2002 was one of my happiest days as a Dolphins fan. We just absolutely demolished the Lions to start what I thought was going to be a very special season. After taking a 35-7 lead, Wanny took Ricky out and let Edwards score two TDs to close it out. He did very little after that though, and his career basically ended in Week 12 of that year.

    Robert Edwards! Georgia I believe? That's back when I used to watch a ton of college ball. Yeah, he had a hell of a journey just in college alone if I remember correctly.

    Not forgotten but a cool look at THE event in Dolphins history:

    LINK:
    1972 Miami Dolphins: The inside story of the only perfect season in NFL history



    "The 1972 Miami Dolphins accomplished something that no one else has matched, winning every regular-season game on their schedule (there were 14 at the time) and all three playoff games, including Super Bowl VII. Before the spotlight shines on them again, I wanted to get an up-close view of what this team was and how it achieved the impossible. I talked with 20 people who either played on the team or were intimately familiar with it about the untold stories, the games that defined the campaign, the Hall of Fame coach, life after perfection and the other memories they will cherish."

    It's weird looking at this footage.

    2000 feels like the quality should be better than it is. The video quality makes me think 80s or 90s not 2000’s.



    Miami winning playoff games though. That's good any decade.

    Remember, when you see clips like this on YouTube, it's usually when someone taped the game on vhs from the live broadcast, uploaded it via old tech to their PC at a crap resolution, and then uploaded it online. And it lost quality every step of the way throughout the process.

    Games absolutely looked much better on TV in those days. Much more similar to what you see from nfl films from that era.
