Oh the members of the '72 Dolphins are so full of themselves that no one will ever get them to concede that perhaps they are not the greatest NFL team ever, but they barely got by a Steelers team in the AFC championship game that year, a Steelers team that was still a few years away from maturing and hitting its peak. I hated
the Steelers, but match up the 1972 Dolphins against the 1975 or 1978 Steelers and the game wouldn't be close; the Steelers would dominate.
