Hard to beat

"Great recaps of the 1972 and 1973 championship seasons; one hour on each season plus lots of bonus features. A good mix of game footage and recent interviews, briefly reviewing most games. Players give personal recollections on training camp, Shula, play calls, Griese's injury (enter Morrall) and competing for playing time (Kiick and Morris). More detailed profiles are given on Larry Csonka, Don Shula, Manny Fernandez, Mercury Morris, Dick Anderson and Bob Kuchenberg. Off the field stuff includes Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Fernandez catching alligators, Shula's sense of humor (?), and Morris' personal demons (successfully dealt with). 1972 also gets into the No-Name Defense, while 1973 highlights the offensive line. Bonus features include: Earl Morrall profile, Csonka's personal foul against Buffalo, "Shula's Way", knocking off the undefeated 1985 Bears, Superbowl VI (loss motivates the 1972 season), Perfect Legacy, End of an Era, Kuchenberg profile, Mercury and Sinatra, Mercury's rap song on the perfect season. Some duplication, but overall well worthwhile, with excellent audio and visual quality."
Great Football Memories From My Childhood

"As a kid, I followed the Miami Dolphins whether it was the play-by-play radio broadcasts of the late and great Rick Weaver or on my black and white television set at home. In recent years, I had been trying to get a good comprehensive history of the 'Perfect Season' in particular, but found it quite difficult to acquire. I then stumbled upon this 2 DVD set and I can tell you that this set is worth every penny of what I paid for it and more. The color and sound quality are fantastic and I know that you will be pleased as well. There is archival footage galore and plenty of great football action here, plus interviews from back then and more recent ones. The players interviewed in this set are Larry Csonka, Manny Fernandez, Mercury Morris, Dick Anderson, Bob Keuchenberg and of course the "Shu" himself Don Shula. Put this one on your "to-do" list today, I promise you'll not be disappointed.
