n 1972, the Miami Dolphins entered the season determined to erase the memory of a Super Bowl loss. Seventeen games later they redefined pro football’s notion of greatness and transformed their team into one for the ages.
In Still Perfect, Dave Hyde brings the perspective of a historian, the reporting of a sports journalist and the passion of a fan to take you on an anecdote-filled ride inside the only undefeated season in NFL history. You’re taken into the huddle to feel Don Shula’s demands, Larry Csonka’s power, Bob Griese’s leadership and that team’s obssessive hunger to win them all. The book, updated for the 50th anniversary of this season, provides unseen struggles and revealing portraits of the teams major figures.
