Larry Csonka has punished some television sets with a similar violence and brutality he used to treat defensive players half a century ago during his days as a Miami Dolphins running back.
“Trust me,” Csonka says on a phone call this week, “in the last eight years I’ve destroyed at least seven or eight TV sets trying to watch the Dolphins -- where from as far away as Alaska I stuck my foot through the TV a couple of time because I was so pissed because of unnecessary errors and penalties.
“It’s idiotic things that happen that can cost you a game. And I’m seeing a much more disciplined team the last few weeks of this season.”
Csonka got a close look at the 2016 Dolphins last Sunday when he watched from the Miami sideline during the team’s victory over the Buffalo Bills. And the Hall of Famer who was a personification for power-running-football came away impressed with the latter day version of Dolphins physical football.
