    16-0 is not important if their final record is 16-1.

    Will a team ever go 19-0? My guess is no. The Dolphins were good AND lucky in 1972. You need both.

    If I were to guess a team that could go 19-0 is this era, I would say... hmmm I just can't. Each team has a weakness that at least 5 teams can exploit.

            Parity plus first place schedules make it more of a challenge than it was for the 72 Dolphins. I think I saw that Miami that year played a lot of bad teams. In any case, if you have all the pieces its more possible now than ever. It was actually more difficult to do in the 90s. And its not so much the salary cap but the fact that lean operations has bled into how the NFL operates. And a result is teams that are no longer strong at running, passing and defense. Since this kind of balance is more the exception now, its a greater advantage. SD has a shot. I think Denver might have a decent shot if Cutlers what we think and hope.

                Thats nice (I agree) but what does that have to do with what I just said?

                  so many teams have come close. 85 bears 15-1 98 vikings 15-1 98 broncos 14-2 13-0 start. a lot of teams come close but there is always a game where there is upsets 85 bears lose to the dolphins 98 vikings lose to the hapless bears of that year and the giants put an end to denvers streak in 1998 i do think a team can imerge out of the blue and do it, may be denver the next few years or the patriots if they dont play denver one year or the colts if there defense show up in the regular season. any thing can happen.

                    I don't think any team will match what the '72 Dolphins did. Maybe somewhere down the line it is possible to go 16-0, yet I highly doubt it.

                        Nay---not with salary caps, holdouts, and free agency.


                        Or if they do, their coach will be Pete Rose in disguise
                        Rest in Peace, Darrent and Damien. You will be forever in our thoughts

                          It's actually "Yea", not "yay". I'll say yes, eventually...
