Patriots Must Go Undefeated: Silence Shula, Csonka And The Rest Of The 1972 Dolphins

Don Shula came out and against the New England Patriots, stating that if they go undefeated their record is tainted because they were caught stealing defensive signals. Not a good move. Don Shula was a well-respected coach and a member of the NFL Hall of Fame. Now he is a bitter old man holding on to his former glory.

For those who do not know, the 1972 Miami Dolphins have the only perfect season in the NFL. In 1972 the Dolphins went 17-0. Every year the members of that team gather to celebrate and relive their former glory when the last undefeated team in the NFL suffers its first loss. The team was outstanding and included incredible players including, Bob Griese, Mercury Morris, and Nick Buoniconti. But, at this point the celebration has become pathetic.

Problems with the 1972 Dolphins and why the 2007 New England Patriots are better:

  1. Larry Csonka has a silent letter in his last name. And Jim Kiick has an extra letter in his last name. The Patriots do not have Tom Psbrady and Laurence Maroooney. Drop the extra letters and get with the program.
  2. Kiick and Csonka both have mustaches. Enough said. Continue reading

Justice John Paul Stevens’s Perplexing View Of The Death Penalty

The New York Times recently did a profile on Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. In the article Justice Stevens explains that his view of the death penalty is shaped by his experiences during World War II.

 

After graduating Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Chicago in 1941, Stevens enlisted in the Navy on Dec. 6, 1941, hours before the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. He later won a bronze star for his service as a cryptographer, after he helped break the code that informed American officials that Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto, the commander of the Japanese Navy and architect of the Pearl Harbor attack, was about to travel to the front. Based on the code-breaking of Stevens and others, U.S. pilots, on Roosevelt’s orders, shot down Yamamoto’s plane in April 1943.

Stevens told me he was troubled by the fact that Yamamoto, a highly intelligent officer who had lived in the United States and become friends with American officers, was shot down with so little apparent deliberation or humanitarian consideration. The experience, he said, raised questions in his mind about the fairness of the death penalty. Continue reading
