Game 7; MIAMI @ NEW ENGLAND, Oct. 28, 1973

 

Weather: 44 degrees, relative humidity 58%, wind 14 mph

Surface: astroturf

Start Time: 1:00pm

Stadium: Schaefer Stadium

 

Two games into the 1973 NFL season, some fans of the Miami Dolphins wondered aloud “What happened to our Dolphins?” After Miami lost 12-7 to the Oakland Raiders many questioned the effectiveness of the offense, which, in 1972, had been rated #1 in the NFL.

A month later, those questions had disappeared.  Decisive wins over New England (44-23), the Jets (31-3), the Browns (17-9) and the high-scoring Buffalo Bills (27-6) had silenced the critics. Miami had defeated four consecutive opponents, averaging almost 30 points per game in the process.

The Dolphins’ offensive line, coached by Monte Clark, was the key to Miami’s improved offensive performance.  Exactly WHO were these guys?  And how were they acquired??

Monte Clark was hired by Don Shula not long after Shula came to Miami in 1970. He soon realized that several of his incumbent O-linemen had to be replaced for lack of talent. But tackle Norm Evans wasn’t one of them.  Evans was drafted out of TCU by the Houston Oilers in 1965. He saw lots of action, starting most of Houston’s games that year. The Oilers decided that Evans was a marginal lineman. They left him unprotected in the expansion draft of 1966.  Miami GM Joe Thomas was only too happy to acquire Evans who, he believed, was one of the better young lineman in the AFL.  By 1972, Evans and receiver Howard Twilley were the only remaining Dolphin players from the original 1966 squad. Evans would be a rock solid performer in Miami’s first three Super Bowl teams.

LittleIn 1969, Joe Thomas reviewed some films and reports of back-up San Diego lineman Larry Little. He remembered being impressed with Little’s play in college at Bethune Cookman, located in Daytona Beach. GM Joe Thomas offered back-up Miami defensive back Mack Lamb to the Chargers in exchange for Little’s services. San Diego’s Sid Gillman reluctantly accepted the deal. Mack Lamb failed to make the San Diego squad. He never played another game. But Larry Little, one of the greatest pulling guards in NFL history, went on to a Hall of Fame career with the Miami Dolphins!  Prior to the 1970 season, Thomas and Clark discussed a young Cleveland player jim-langernamed Jim Langer. Langer switched from linebacker (which he played at South Dakota State) to the offensive line in camp. Cleveland tried to sneak Langer through on waivers, expecting no one would claim this virtual unknown. Sharp-eyed Joe Thomas put in a claim. That summer, Langer won the Dolphins’ starting center job over the veteran Bob De Marco. His amazing career would end with his enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton! Score yet ANOTHER HOFer for Thomas!

Bob Kuechenberg, a Notre Dame product, had trials with the Eagles and the Falcons in 1968. Both teams released him. A year later he was playing in a “beer” league for the semi-pro Chicago Owls in the Continental League. The team went bankrupt midway through the season. But the players kept on playing, getting rewarded with beer and pizza instead of paychecks.

In early 1970, Kuechenberg studied the rosters of several NFL teams. He noticed a reserve guard for the Dolphins names Ed Tuck. This was the SAME Ed Tuck Kuechenberg had beaten out of a starting job at Notre Dame. So he tried  out with the Dolphins. “Kooch’s” heart almost stopped when coach Monte Clark told him he had been cut. But Clark PROMISED Kuechenberg he’d recall him from waivers if nobody claimed him. Sure enough, EVERY NFL TEAM PASSED ON KUECHENBERG and Clark brought him back to the Dolphins where he was placed on the taxi squad. By the second half of the 1970 season, “Kooch” had replaced Maxie Williams at left guard. He would start for Miami for the next 15 years, play in four Super Bowls, making All-Pro six times, and play in a Miami record 196 games! Kuechenberg has since been nominated (but not elected) to the Pro Football Hall of Fame!

The same day the Browns cut an unknown Jim Langer, the 49ers cut a player they listed as “Solomon” Moore. Monte Clark wondered is this really Wayne Moore, a guy he had trained with in the off season, along with several other guys? Clark, who lived out west before being hired by Miami, still knew several 49er players. One of them told Clark “Solomon” was Wayne Moore’s first name. Clark believed the 6’7″ tackle had a real future in the league. He convinced GM Joe Thomas to claim him off waivers. By 1972, Wayne Moore was seeing plenty of playing time (along with 1969 first round draft pick Doug Crusan). By 1973, Moore was solidly entrenched as Miami’s left tackle.

Norm Evans, Larry Little, Jim Langer, Bob Kuechenberg and Wayne Moore, as a group, had not cost Miami ONE SINGLE DRAFT CHOICE!!! –By the end of 1973, they were, unquestionably, the BEST OFFENSIVE LINE in the National Football League!

The Patriots, Miami’s foe Oct. 28, already knew how good the Dolphins’ offensive line was. In 1972, the Dolphins crushed New England 52-0 and 37-21 on the way to the NFL’s one and only Perfect Season! A month prior to this game, Miami’s O-line led the Dolphins to well over 200 yards rushing against the Patriots on the way to a 44-23 victory in week #3 of the ’73 season. But, since that game, New England’s defense had shown marked improvement. They defeated Baltimore 24-16, lost to the Jets 9-7, before going on the road to defeat the Bears 13-10. The Patriots defense had limited their last three opponents to just 11.7 points per game.

Head coach Don Shula remained supremely confident of Miami’s ability to score points. O-line coach Monte Clark and offensive coordinator Bill McPeak realized the Patriots were a better team than they were in September. But they both believed Miami’s offense would have yet another big day on this nippy (44 degrees) in Foxboro.

New England was sky high for this contest! They knew another loss to Miami would leave them at 2-5 with no hope of making the playoffs in a 14-game regular season schedule. Then, head coach Chuck Fairbanks reminded his defense that Miami had run-up 52, 37 and 44 points in their last three meetings.  He asked them “Are you guys tired of getting your asses kicked?”

The New England defense laid a big hit on Bob Griese in the game’s first series, forcing a fumble which the Patriots’ recovered. Pats’ quarterback Jim Plunkett decided to go for broke on the very next play. He spotted Sam (the Bam) Cunningham wide open down the field. Plunkett’s pass was on target. Cunningham caught the ball and roared 34 yards into the end zone and the Patriots had a quick 7-0 lead.

Shula and Griese agreed the best way to quiet the suddenly noisy New England crowd was to respond with a scoring drive. Miami’s offensive line opened up some running lanes for Larry Csonka and Mercury Morris. From the Pats’ 11 yard line, Griese fired a dart to Marlin Briscoe who cradled the touchdown pass, tying the score at 7-7 after one quarter.

2nd q morrisNew England continued to have offensive success. Sam Cunningham’s six yard touchdown run gave the Pats a 14-7 lead early in the second quarter. Two long drives by the Dolphins’ offense ended, frustratingly, in short Yepremian field goals. When the first half was over, New England still held a 14-13 lead. This improved Patriots’ team was giving Miami all they could handle.

Don Shula urged his players to give him a total team effort in the second half. But even the Don of Miami could not have predicted what was about to take place in the third quarter.  Patriots’ punter/place kicker Jeff White had failed to win a spot with Miami during summer camp. Eventually, he ended uo in New England. Shula decided to rush 10 players when White punted early in the third quarter. Lloyd Mumphord got a piece of it, forcing a short punt. Garo’s ensuing 23 yard field goal put Miami ahead 16-14.

Again the Dolphins’ defense stopped the Patriots’ offense cold. White, under a ferocious rush, kicked the next punt STRAIGHT UP IN THE AIR! A backwards bounce left the ball at New England’s three yard line! Mercury Morris’ two yard touchdown run put Miami ahead 23-14 after three quarters.

The Dolphins mounted a long, time consuming, drive in the final stanza. Miami’s outstanding offensive line simply wore down the Patriot’s defense. A crack-back block by Paul Warfield sprang Morris for a nice game. More runs followed as Miami ate up the clock. This methodical 75-yard drive ended when Langer and Little blew open a huge hole allowing Csonka to roar up the middle for an eight yard touchdown rumble! The Dolphins total domination of the second half had turned a 14-13 halftime deficit into a convincing 30-14 victory.

On the day, Miami rushed 45 times for 238 yards and two touchdowns. A smiling Don Shula heaped praise on his offensive line as he awarded the game ball to center Jim Langer, who immediately praised his fellow offensive linemen for a terrific effort!

The 1973 Miami Dolphins were now 6-1.

    Here is a good article about U.S. District Court Judge David Doty and some of the cases he has had involving on labor and anti-trust litigation. http://www.twincities.com/sports/ci_26611048/minneapolis-judge-david-s-doty-hands-off-nfl

    • Ken says:

      There was also a female judge who was heavily involved with litigation involving the NFL. The point is if Brady sues the court has the jurisdiction and the ability to make a ruling that the league may not want.

By the time I turned the radio on, it was 38-0, or something like that in the 2nd QTR. I was sure it was mistake, but it was confirmed the nightmare was real.

    Before they cut his (Ramsay) cock off, they should flay it while it’s still attached.

  21. Brian in NY says:

    Mets just called up Conforto- Cuddyear on the DL.

  22. The Flying Pig says:

    Bring Ramsay to me

  23. Mike E. says:

    Question is . . .

    Can Conforto hit better than .174 like the rest of the team? It’s absolutely pathetic looking at the Mets position players hitting stats.

    • Tim Knight says:

      A co-worker and I were looking at how many Mets have on base pct. under .300. It’s ridiculous. Conforto could hit .230 up here and he’d be an upgrade.

  24. Tim Knight says:

    Brian, Reek better be the one to off him.

  25. Mike E. says:

    No GOT spoilers, but Reek is NOT dead.

  26. Mike E. says:

    Tim

    We need a few people in that lineup that command respect from opposing pitching. d’Arnaud is one guy, maybe the only one. If a we had at least 2 other guys, it would change the pitches that the other guys would see.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Duda is hitting like .141 since May which is the worst avg. over that time in the majors. He needs to end that funk. We need his bat. Then d’Arnaud and maybe this Conforto kid adds a spark to the lineup. he’s suppose to be an excellent contact hitter. That alone could change the dynamic from where it is.

  27. The Flying Pig says:

    Tim

    didn’t you see the last episode of this season

    Herrera was optioned back to AAA. He wasn’t hitting either.

    • Mike E. says:

      He was sent down when Murphy came back from his injury earlier in July. He’s hitting .286 with 1 HR, 4 doubles and 4 RBI’s with the AAA club.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Oh okay thanks. Do the Mets draft and scout guys who can hit? LOL

      • Mike E. says:

        Apparently not. They do well with pitching, but really, a lot of the pitchers are Omar Minaya’s guys.

  32. Tim Knight says:

    Yeah the only guys you can give Alderson credit for was acquiring Syndergaard for Dickey and Wheeler for Beltran.

  33. Tim Knight says:

    Talk about not wearing pants or much else, anyone see what Rose McGowan wore to the VMAs?

    I wonder how some guys keep their jobs. I was just watching MiamiDolphins.com video of the Vikings game last yr, and the lutz says 6′ 4″ rookie Terence Feed blocks the punt for a safety (to win the game). How can this guy work for the team and not know the players names?

    But you guys don’t give a shit, you’re too busy watching FashionFag Video 😛

  53. stangerx says:

    “The NFL believes that it will get a deal done with Brady that includes some suspension as a result of the Patriots quarterback’s role in Deflategate. According to Jason Cole, the league believes that it can “wear Brady down.”

    “Those in the league offices understand that as part of an agreement, Brady will very likely want it made clear that he had nothing to do with the deflation of footballs. Instead, the language associated with Goodell’s ruling will have to point out that the punishment is as a result of Brady’s lack of cooperation in the league’s investigation.”
    ————————————-
    I’m with Cole on this…….all about faces being saved at this point.

    • steveccnv says:

      My wish is being granted, I said I didn’t care about the suspension. I just want it to drag out as long as possible.

      Fuck his legacy, we all know they’ve cheated on multiple occasions and won’t stop.

      • stangerx says:

        steveccnv — then wish for Goodel to go spank. That could keep it going for a long while…….don’t think it will happen though.

    Report: NFL believes Brady may accept reduced suspension

    WTF? Like it’s up to brady to decide.

  57. steveccnv says:

    This is what I hope happens:

    The belief from the start has been that Brady feels he has done nothing wrong and is seeking a complete exoneration. However, he has always put the interests of the Patriots ahead of his own. A nasty federal court battle could, in theory, distract the team.

  58. The Flying Pig says:

    In Court, the NFL will have a right to subpoena Brady’s phone

      You could say that that is PC gone crazy — not like they were Jimmy the Greek comments — but think this adds a bit of context:

      “Cowherd, who had been with ESPN for 12 years, announced earlier this week that he’s leaving the company for another business opportunity.”

      Might make it a bit easier for ESPN to bring out the stick. For whatever reason, might be a whole lot more behind the scenes on that too.

    I just heard the Mets are trying to make a trade with the Braves for Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson, for 2 minor league Mets pitching prospects, neither that I’ve heard of, Gant and Whalen

      I did too, I’m watching the game to see Conforto. LOL

      I really don’t know what to think of it other than the two pitching prospects will be beating us in the future because it’s the Mets way.

    Justin Turner killing us. That’s been a consistent theme with ex-Mets coming back to haunt us. Ugh!
