In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the 1972 Miami Dolphins Perfect Season, OJ and Seth revisit one of their favorite episodes featuring three legends from that championship team: Larry Csonka, Larry Little, and Mercury Morris.
There were many factors that contributed to the perfect 17-0 record. One reason was their fearsome rushing attack that helped Miami become the first team in NFL history to feature two backs who each rushed for 1,000 yards in the same season.
Those two backs were Pro Football Hall of Fame fullback Larry Csonka and the electric Mercury Morris. Paving the way for Csonka and Morris was an all-star offensive line lead by Hall of Fame guard, Larry Little. This legendary trio dives in to The Tank and it is no surprise that the result is one of our most spectacular episodes to date. From Csonka and Jim Kiick sneaking out of the team hotel through the bushes, to Little earning his poultry inspired nickname, to Morris’ supernatural exploits with “The Root Man,” these guys are as dynamic on the mic as they were on the field!
