List of the best Miami Dolphins of all time. Since their formation in 1966 as part of the AFL, the Miami Dolphins have been one of the most successful teams in AFC history. From the beginning of the 1970s through the early 2000s, Miami was the standard bearer for excellence in the conference. During this nearly 30 year run of success, the Dolphins had many of the best players in its history on its roster. The dominant Dolphins Super Bowl teams of the 1970s had some of the top players in the league on the team. With head coach Don Shula as the constant, the Dolphins fielded what some consider to be the best team of all time in 1972 when they went an unmatched 17-0, the only NFL team to go undefeated during a single season. 

Many of the team's best players were on the 1972 undefeated, Super Bowl winning team. Hall of Fame players like Larry Csonka, Paul Warfield, Bob Griese and Larry Little to name a few are considered some of the best Dolphins ever. While the players on that team are memorable, perhaps the most famous Dolphins player is star quarterback Dan Marino, who is one of the best quarterbacks of all time. Despite not winning a championship, Marino is still considered one of the most popular and greatest Dolphins ever and thousands of Miami fans to this day will wear his jersey to the team's home games. 

This list of the best Miami Dolphins factors in all players from the team's AFL days to the present day. If you see someone missing from this list, feel free to add him if you consider him one of the greatest Miami Dolphins players of all time.
