The Killer B s
The 1982 Miami Dolphins defense allowed only 131 points in the 9 game, strike shortened season. The nickname was coined because six out of their 11 starters had last names beginning with B Bob Baumhower, Bill Barnett, Lyle Blackwood, Kim Bokamper, Glenn Blackwood, Charles Bowser, Doug Betters and Bob Brudzinski. The Dolphins won the AFC Championship, before eventually losing in the Super Bowl. But the name lives on.
