Hall of Fame running back Larry Csonka was named to the Pro Bowl that season – one of the eight seasons he played for the Dolphins over the course of his career. He was asked Sunday before the ’72 team was honored at Hard Rock Stadium about being named the greatest team in the league’s history over the last 100 years.

“We took the g–damn thing. I’m tired of people telling me they named us. They named us s—t. We took it,” Csonka said before joking he had no “emotional response” to it.
