Coach Don Shula, only coach to take a team to a perfect season, has died today at 81

He was the first coach I learned of, and I learned to respect him.
I remember watching the "Don Shula Show" on channel 10 in Miami, with Chuck Dowdell (now on WSB in Atlanta) brought to you by Tinsley Advertising.

Are you smart enough to buy a bike that costs less, weighs less, makes more horsepower per cubic centimeter, can be rebuilt for recycled aluminum can money and is giggle inducing? It is hard to believe that the American riding public flunks this test en masse. How stupid are you?

RIP if true. Also, didn't the Patriots or some other team also have a perfect season just a few years back?

I don't know, guess it didn't happen? I was thinking there was a team that did it but that could be the one I'm thinking about. The one I really remember was the 85 Bears who were unstoppable, until they ran into the Dolphins and lost 1 game. Stopping the streak is what the Dolphins had to play for since it was their streak being protected.

The '72 Dolphins are the only team to go undefeated
14-0 in regular season and after the Superbowl ended the season 17-0

Some like to foolishly say that the Patriots exceeded the Dolphins perfect season by going 18-1, winning one more consecutive game, but it isn't a consecutive game win streak record, it's a perfect season

and only the Miami Dolphins have accomplished that

and many of the '72 Dolphins players were there on the sidelines during that game, which added motivation and pressure to the 'Fins players to get the job done

I gotta figure it's not true. Not a blip on the news about it.

If it was true ESPN would be covering it non stop. Not a peep on there right now. Hang in there Don.
