On a warm Monday night, some 15 hours before they were heading to the White House to meet President Obama, 30 members of the ’72 Miami Dolphins, two coaches (Don Shula and Howard Schnellenberger) and some very fortunate invited guests got to share some special memories over dinner and drinks.

From the Fins:
A few weeks ago this NFL.com contributor wrote an article about the top “Diva’s” in the NFL. He proceeded to call the 1972 Dolphins team the biggest “Diva” of them all. In response to Rank’s article, Mercury Morris, a member of that ’72 team, joined our show last week to give his two cents. Rank called in today to tell us his side of the story after Mercury’s response did not go unnoticed.
Time to continue our series on the history of the NFL Draft. Last week, we gave you the history of the 15th overall pick, which is currently held by the Dolphins. Today, we’ll assess the drafting of running backs.
With countless mock drafts suggesting that the Fins will select Alabama RB Mark Ingram in the first round, I thought it would be interesting to test Troy Stradford’s theory that running backs are a “dime a dozen.”
In 2010, the NFL’s leading rusher was Arian Foster of the Houston Texans, who ran for over 1,600 yards.
The former Dolphins running back and proud member of the 1972 undefeated Dolphins team spoke with the guys about a number of topics including his thoughts on today’s NFL versus his era. Listen in as Morris and Sam reminisce about the Giants upset of the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII which preserved the ’72 Dolphins mark as the only undefeated team.
