I think every fan in football knows about the 1972 Dolphins.
That's what makes undefeated special is that everyone
would remember it. You get four or five years away from a Super Bowl, and the only people who remember are the fans of the champion.
But not if the team is perfect.
Being perfect and undefeated is about as rare a gem as there is in football- I wouldn't underestimate that.
I'd venture to say that the Patriots losing in 2008 will live on far longer than any particular year they won it all.
