Post 5 Winningest NFL Franchises Since 1970
Quote:
Everyone knows about the perfect 17-0 season in 1972, and under coach Don Shula from 1970 through 1995, the Dolphins enjoyed 16 seasons with 10 or more wins. Quarterback Dan Marino played in 155 of these victories between 1983 and 1999. But the good times ended around the turn of the century; Miami has made the playoffs only once since 2001. What keeps the Dolphins relatively high on this list is the fact that, when they haven’t been great, they haven’t been absolutely terrible, either (with the notable exception of that brutal 1-15 2007 season). In fact, the Dolphins had only two losing seasons from 1970 through 2003, a great run of consistency. The only consistency Miami has shown in recent years is a tendency to change coaches; the Dolphins have had eight head coaches since 1995.

stumbled across this article while arguing with a buddy who is a Redskin fan, who claimed that the Skins have been more relevant than the Fins in the past few decades. I begged to differ. I know we were the winningest franchise up until 3 years ago and then lost our grasp to Dallas for the official lead.

From 1970-2003, the Dolphins had just two losing seasons in 34 years. Do you think they don't get enough recognition as one of the most consistent franchises in sports history?

The Dolphins have had eight coaches since 1995. What the article fails to mention is that they have also had 20 different starting QB's since 1995. That's a big reason why this team has been mired in suckitude for so long.

even in that 18 year stretch we only had 7 losing seasons. And that's Miami's darkest era.
