Only one team in NFL history has had a perfect season, and it wasn’t Brady’s Patriots. In 20007 Tom Brady and the Patriots were on the cusp of perfection when they fell short against the Giants in the Super Bowl. But perfection is a spectrum, and how we define it depends on the metrics we use to measure it. Could that Giants team have been the one with a “perfect” season that year? Could even the 1972 Miami Dolphins’ perfect season have fallen short in some ways?

GUESTS: Kevin Gilbride, Perfection researcher Gordon Flett, Podcast Host Dan Nastasi and Former Dolphin Larry Little
