Founded in 1966 as a member of the AFL, the Dolphins established themselves as a great franchise by hiring Don Shula as coach in 1970- he would lead the team until 1995! Miami had 7 playoff berths in the 1970s, making the Super Bowl 3 straight times from 1971-73. They won 2 of these titles, taking Super Bowls VI and VII. On their way to the Super Bowl VI crown, Miami became the only team in NFL history to go undefeated at 17-0. An urban legend is that members of the '72 Dolphins celebrate a toast each year when the last undefeated team loses. Lost the Super Bowl in 1982 and picked up the legendary Dan Marino as quarterback the next season. Marino led the Dolphins to a loss in the Super Bowl in 1984 and to 10 playoff berths in his career which lasted until 1999. However, the league's all time leading passer never won a championship. Have not made the playoffs since 2001, just barely missing them in 2002 and 2003.
"The Miami Dolphins win a low scoring game against Washington. They are 17-0 and champions of the National Football League."

An American pro football team that hovers around mediocrity for decades at a time, often pissing off Daniel Tosh and the rest of the fans.
Hey what's wrong with Daniel?
Oh nothing he's fine, he's just a Miami Dolphins' fan.

The worst fucking team to ever join the NFL. The only team with a 16-0 start and that was it. Go back to the fucking ocean. The dolphins suck so much when you get a shit grade instead of putting an F the teacher puts the Miami dolphin logo

Only team in NFL history to ever complete a season undefeated and win the Super Bowl.
The Miami Dolphins sure do make a great team when they play together.
