Miami Dolphins team logo - American ButlerThe name of the team for a long time could not choose. As a result, the founders held a contest where Miami Dolphins won among the thousand options . Logo painted appropriate. Later, Joe Robbie based his choice on the fact that dolphins are the smartest creatures, and damn fast as well. They are able to fight back even a shark.

In the same year, George Wilson signed for the position of coach. In September 1966, he spent the first game, where it all ended in a loss. However, Miami Dolphins won the Denver Broncos with a score of 24-7 already in October, ending the first season with 4 wins and 10 losses.

We cannot say that Wilson, as a coach, is successful - the team has been losing regularly, but in a few years it has been replenished with cool players: quarterback Bob Griez, raninbek Larry Xonkom and defender Lirri Lytlom.

With the arrival of the new coach in 1970 - Don Shula, the players revealed the talents to the fullest. Over the next 4 years, the team won 65 games. The year 1972 is the most significant - this season the team became the leader in all games, winning the Super Bowl VII. Nobody has repeated this result. since 1948. The team secured the success of the victory in Super Bowl VIII.

In early 1990, team owner Joe Robbie died. After 4 years, Dolphins acquired athlete Wayne Hayuzeng, and a couple of years later came the trainer Jimmy Johnson. The team regularly went into the playoffs, but since then has not achieved significant achievements. But this does not mean that they have slipped - just lifted the bar very high.

Famous players

  • Dan Marino

1983 During the selection of the strongest student football players, the NFL urgently needed a quarterback - Dan Marino took his place. With the choice, the league did not lose - Dan broke many NFL records among the quarterbacks, he was recognized as the best defense player in the debut season, and he took the team 10 times to the playoffs.

He left the team in 2000, and five years later for his merits he fell into the Hall of Fame of American football.

Larry was taken to the team in 1968 for the role of raninbek. His career began poorly. By the fifth game, he was knocked out and he had a concussion. Three weeks later, he received another concussion, rupture of the eardrum and a broken nose. There was talk that Larry would have to give up football.

When Larry returned to the team in 1970, he had to almost learn from scratch. Over the next four seasons, Xonka diligently participated in all games. He became one of the most impressive runners, and legends began to be made about his resilience. For example, when the coach was asked about Larry’s bruises, he replied: “When Xonka goes on safari, the lions hide”.
