This might be the most requested video we've ever had, so thrilled to finally present Dan Marino's episode of "Untitled." Well, it's Ryan's episode of "Untitled" about Dan Marino, but you get it.
I don't think any of us fully understood how absurd Marino's career was - in a few different senses of the word "absurd." MVP in his first full season as starter, his name lining the league's record books, two of the most accomplished coaches the league has ever seen, and a level of disfunction that makes the shortcomings more frustrating and the success even more impressive. Achieving that at the same time is a very impressive feat - just probably not as sweet as a Super Bowl win would've been.
Check out this episode to fully understand what happened over 17 years in order for Dan Marino to finish his career untitled.

  • Dan Marino was a supreme Quarterback at Miami Dolphins. Sometimes l think the heat must have got to him and should have signed for a NFC side in middle 80s. What we left to remember is the AFC Divisional hammering by Jacksonville Jaguars.

  • This is why I hate when people say "Jordan won six championships" or "Brady won six superbowls" Actually, no they didn't. Their teams did. Period. The only time you can say that is in one on one sports like tennis, boxing, MMA, etc. Dan Marino, Earl Campbell, a few of the best ever. In basketball, Charles Barkley, Karl Malone. I mean, are we gonna say Manu Ginobili was better than Karl Malone or Barkley or Ewing because he has more rings? Means absolutely nothing in team sports. Not anything at all.

  • He was clutch during the regular season but not in the post season. He didn’t take pay cuts like Brady to build great teams around him. They kept the same coach too long. People assume just because you are great you will win it all... no. It’s hella hard and you need everything including lots of luck.

    wakawaka1976wakawaka197612 ngày trước
  • People use inconsistent reasoning for who the best ever QB is. Most will say Tom Brady and Joe Montana are better all-time QBs than Peyton Manning because they have more super bowl wins; yet also believe 0-time champion Dan Marino was better than 4-time champion Terry Bradshaw and 3-time champion Troy Aikmen. This means they are using different metrics to judge certain QBs, which really just means the "best" in their minds isn't even based off reality.

  • He definatelty had one if not the best arm ever. I'm suprised Warren Moon is hardly mentioned anymore. He never won one either. He also had one of the best arms and threw lasers just like Dan.

    Shon MoodyShon Moody13 ngày trước
    • Yeah...it's a shame Steve Young had to sit the bench behind Montana for so many years. He could had 5 year longer career as a starter. I always found him more exciting to watch than Montana anyway, since he could run and pass. He kind of reminds me of Josh Allen but Steve was a leftie.

      Shon MoodyShon Moody11 ngày trước
    • Marino, Moon, Kelly, Steve Young, John Elway, the start of Troy Aikman’s career, and the end of Joe Montana’s career all intersected. That’s seven Hall of Fame quarterbacks that were all active from 1989-1994. Also, the start of Brett Favre’s career was 1991 too. In 1993, all of those quarterbacks but Marino played in the postseason. Talk about a cutthroat period for the position.

  • He never had a running back, the Dolphins had a terrible defense and the stupid wildcard bullshit had the Patriots play against da Bears in the Super Bowl instead of the Dolphins that year. Marino sliced up the Bears earlier that year on an epic Monday Night game.

  • Let’s get something straight, Marino was the most competitive and lethal passer of his generation. If Marino played today he would throw for 7000 yards and 60 touchdowns. This is from a diehard NY Jets fan. Dan Fouts, Warren Moon, Jim Kelly, Phillip Rivers all suffered the same faith.

  • If the Dolphins had had a defense Marino probably would’ve won a couple of rings. In his records would’ve been even bigger because the Dolphins would’ve actually spent more time on the field.

  • In the 1984 SuperBowl, the first few Dolphin possessions they went on a no-huddle offense. Completely surprising the 49ers which ran maybe a 3-4 or 4-3 Defense and Miami got a TD from Marino to Johnson. The 49ers adjusted to a Nickle Defense and benched their slow linebackers and it was over after that. Don't forget in that year, all 4 DBs starters for the 49ers (CB Lott, CB Wright, SS Williamson, and FS Hicks) were all on the Pro-Bowl. They were really good! The Defensive line for the 49ers which included Fred Dean and Big Hands Johnson, Dwaine Board harrassed Marino all game long. Marino had 4 sacks in the Superbowl which equaled his total of sacks the whole 1984 season. There are no mulligans in the Superbowl. You bring what you have that day.

  • Marino, Jim Kelly, Dan Fouts and Fran Tarkenton were all chokers. Marino was a super choker. Marino's High School, Central Catholic went to the State Championships, where Marino lost. Pitt was one of the hottest Colleges in the country. Pitt was ranked in the top 5, but never won the National Championship. Of course, Marino was a choker in the NFL. Drug use might be the problem, but Fran Tarkenton never had a drug problem. I believe that all chokers are natural talents, who can't win the big game. Things come easy to natural talents, but Championship games are not easy. Although, Bradshaw was the 1st player picked in his draft, his first 4 years were bad. In Bradshaw's 4th year, he was benched in favor of Jefferson Street Joe Gilliam. Joe was benched after a few games. Bradshaw went on to win four Super Bowls. Brady was the last QB picked in the draft. Both Brady and Bradshaw had to fight to become QB.

  • I watched NFL Network's biography on Marino, and they ask him directly about never winning a Super Bowl. Marino, not wanting to lie because he's an awesome guy like that....gets rather emotional when reflecting. He was holding back tears. He admits that of course he wishes he had won a Super Bowl, and he's well aware of the blemish. Marino's mother was also interviewed and she was even more candid. She made it sound like it is something that weighs on him, constantly. I could not help but just feel absolutely horrible for Marino after watching that. Football is a team sport. I don't think Marino's career should be diminished because of no Super Bowl ring. The same as Jim Kelly with the Bills.

  • Marino was more like Steve Young. If surrounded by the very best he might just squeak out a single Super Bowl victory (as starter). Without the very best team at every position Marino was simply above average. Joe and now Tom make average players Super Bowl winners.

  • Dan Marino didn't want a running game behind him he clashed with Jimmy Johnson when Jimmy wanted Marino to take a back seat to a running game, Elway took a backseat to Terrell Davis, Marino wasn't willing to do that

  • When you' re loosing AFC championship game against the poor 85 Patriots you can' t win a SB. The Dolphins were the only team who could beat the 85 Baers, Marino devastated Bears defense and he maybe could have do it in SB once again. In retrospect I believe it would have been easier as to beat the 49er.

    Terry CusterTerry CusterTháng trước
  • Dan Marino didn't quite have the X Factor as did Brady and Montana. Like Elway, Dan Marino needed a Superior running back like Terrell Davis to take over big games. A fearsome defense would've helped as well, but remember Kurt Warner won a Superbowl without the assistance of a Hall of Fame defensive player.
