And those old geezers from the '72 Dolphins are still as bitter as ever.
Garo Yepremian, kicker for the 1972 Miami Dolphins team that was 17-0, wasn't all that impressed with the New England Patriots finishing the regular season 16-0.
"We were the first ones to climb Mt. Everest," Yepremian told ESPN.com. "If New England comes and does it, then they can be the second ones. But you usually don't remember No. 2. I remember Sir Edmund Hillary was the first one to climb Mt. Everest. I don't remember who did it the second time. Do you?"
Just like no one remembers the second NFL kicker to throw an interception after a blocked field-goal try and have the other team return it for a touchdown in a Super Bowl.
