Mercury Morris Would 'Toast' An Undefeated Packers Season
The Green Bay Packers are a convincing 9-0 in the 2011 NFL season, which means it's time for the members of the only undefeated team in NFL history, the 1972 Miami Dolphins, to offer their opinions on the possibility of history repeating.
Running back Mercury Morris is generally the most vocal of the '72 Dolphins, and he was critical of the New England Patriots when they flirted with perfection in 2007, but according to FoxSportsFlorida.com (as reported on NFL.com), Morris is being vastly more charitable toward the Packers. "I will toast them" if they go 19-0, Morris said, according to the report. And he didn't stop there:
"I like (the Packers). If they get to 10-0, which they probably will, I'm going to send Aaron Rodgers one of my CDs," [Morris] went on. "I have nothing but good things to say about the Packers. If they (end up) in our neighborhood, they're a credit to the sport. They don't have a bunch of guys out there who view themselves as entertainers."The Packers will next test their undefeated record against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
