Miami Dolphins FootballThe Miami Dolphins began play in the American Football League as an expansion team in 1966, and joined the NFL as part of the AFL-NFL Merger. The nickname Dolphins was chosen in a team contest. "The dolphin is one of the fastest and smartest creatures of the sea," half-owner Joe Robbie said in announcing the team name on October 8, 1965. "Dolphins can attack and kill a shark or a whale. Sailors say bad luck will come to anyone who harms one of them."
They captured the AFC championship in 1971 behind quarterback Bob Griese and wide receiver Paul Warfield and the Miami Dolphins played in their first Super Bowl. The Dallas Cowboys overpowered them 24-3. Miami was not deterred. They came back the following year and went to the Super Bowl again. They finished the 1972 season undefeated. Jake Scott who intercepted 2 passes was named Super Bowl MVP as they beat the Washington Redskins 17-0. They weren’t finished there. They came back in 1973 to claim another Super Bowl title. Larry Csonka who was named MVP rushes for 145 yards on 33 carries, and scores 2 TDs, as the Dolphins win their 2nd straight Super Bowl with a 24-7 win over the Vikings.
In the early 80s, the Miami Dolphins made it back to the Super Bowl. They weren’t as lucky as they were in the 70s. They lost to the Redskins in 1982 and then again to the 49ers in 1984. In 1984, Dan Marino sets records in TD passes and passing Yards in a season becoming the first QB ever to pass for over 5,000 yards and score over 40 TD in a season and becomes the league MVP.
In 2004, the Miami Dolphins recorded their worst season ever. Ricky Williams tested positive for marijuana twice before the season started. Williams suddenly decided to retire, in protest to the NFL's strict schedule and rules against marijuana use. They finished with a record of 4-12. Williams would return to the Dolphins in 2005, but would have to serve a 4-game suspension for failing a drug test.
