As a long suffering Dolphins fan my fellow phins and I have commiserated on this topic ad nauseam. Lets say in this hypothetical that the Dolphins still won it in 1972 but they just stumbled somewhere in the regular season.

As much as I would want dan to get a ring, I would not trade that season for anything, every year who do they talk about? the 1972 Miami Dolphins, Perfect cannot be substituted.

The Jets not winning Super Bowl 3? If that were the case, the perfect season would never exist because the Dolphins wouldn't exist because the NFL would never merge with the AFL. So, that seems like a dumb choice for me.
If I were to trade it for anything, it'd be a ring for Dan...that one bothers me a lot, but honestly, Miami fans hang their hat on that perfect season. So does Mercury Morris, Don Shula and all the other old guys....it makes Miami stand out, it makes them unique and it makes them the best.

So I wouldn't trade it.

Nothing. We were the best and nothing can change that.

Yeah I wasn't even thought of yet for that perfect season but I still wouldn't trade it for anything. The one thing us Phins fans will always have to backup a football argument is that we are still the only team to pull off perfection.

WE HAD OUR CAKE AND WE ATE IT TOO!

I have to say that i would think about trading it to get Dan a ring. He deserves one instead of Trent Dilfer, but i couldn't take that accomplishment away from The Don, the players and organization. Not to mention I can still talk undefeated to the Patsie fans I know.

I would be tempted to trade the 72 season for a new 12 year run of playoff berths with 3 Superbowl Wins.

Probably not fair, because I wasn't born until '84... but I'd trade it any day of the week to get Marino a ring.
