  1. Dan Marino 6 TD game from 1986

    6 TD's isn't enough to save Miami, as the Dolphins fall in overtime as their defense was that bad to surrender 51 points.

      Oh yeah, Marino gets rid of it FAST and his long passes were a thing of beauty. We have so many pocket QB's these days who are like clones of him, but I don't know any that really have the pinpoint accuracy and ball control that Marino had. You can see it in old videos, his ball control is just out of this world insane. Those are perfect spiral passes. 

       

      Manning is the only modern QB I've seen who comes close. His ball control and accuracy is the closest to Marino. I think if you are judging QB's specifically on just talent alone, Marino should always be considered in the top 3 and he should be the standard used for pass control and accuracy.

      I don't know how they lost this game. Was the run game shaky too and not able to burn up clock?

       

      The Dolphins never had a run game when Marino was there. Going by the stat of this game, they rushed for just 50 yards. 

       

      The game kinda turned upside down in the 3rd quarter when the Jets scored on a 50 yard pass and then a 65 yard pass, back to back and went up 10 points, forcing the Dolphins to pull off a comeback. 

       

      They lost that game on their defense. The defense was HORRIBLE. That video is from 1986 and the Dolphins defense was absolutely terrible that year. They had multiple games where they gave up 50 points....

       

       

      You have to see footage of Marino in 1984 

       

       

       

       

      That's from 1984, and that video is just insane. :woah: His accuracy on those bomb passes is out of this world. 

       

      Note - this was back when there was an automatic 15 yard penalty if the QB threw the ball out of bounds. You had to FORCE the ball even if no one was open, which explains why Marino forces that pass to Joe Rose into coverage. Interception numbers used to be drastically higher because of this rule too. 

       

      Marino's 1984 season is the year he threw for 5,000 yards and 48 TD's. I still think his 1984 season is more impressive than Brady's 2007 or Brees 2011 season. They broke his records in an era that favors the quarterback and passing game...Marino got his records in a year where you get an automatic 15 yards pushed back if you threw the ball out of bounds.

      Okay I am half asleep, or more like 75% asleep but in that video he reminds me a bit of Tom Brady. I can see a lot of Marino in Brady too.

       

      Which is why you always call them today "Marino clones". lmao

      2004 Peyton is the first I believe to break the Marino TD record.

       

       

       

      I used to feel bad for Peyton when a few years later Brady broke it again with the "Moss and Welker show".

       

      Watching the beginning of that video makes Peyton look like Marino now to me. But Peyton was always big on Marino and always gave him so many compliments. 

       

      BTW the music in that video sounds like some club music or something. I feel like I should be drunk on red bull and vodka. BTW thats a bad combination too........you will be up all night wired and drunk at the same time.

      Dude......Marino's long passes were so sexy I almost feel bad comparing him to Brady now. But Brady in his short passing game IMO played a lot like Marino looked.

       

      Marino's spirals were PERFECT. In the original video you posted, those are among the best passes I have ever seen in my life.

       

       

      Screw the Dolphins for never giving him a good enough D consistently and run game. Why did they have so many issues building a good enough balanced team around him?

      Cool video, I like the music. lmao

       

      There was a period between 2004 to about 2011 where Manning, Favre, Brady and Brees were breaking all his records. 

       

      Favre broke the all time touchdown record in 2007, and Marino gave him a standing ovation during the game, it was pretty crazy. 

       

      I actually feel bad about Brees breaking his 1984 records in 2011 cause the Saints had to really pad their stats to get that yardage record and in the end, I feel like we may have sacrificed the possibility of winning a SB by chasing those records.

      I tell people this all the time, don't be angry at him for never winning a SB, be angry at the Dolphins management for failing him. They set him up to fail...They did not build a team around him. 

       

      ESPN ran this series some years ago where they had a segment on Dan Marino called "The Top 5 Reasons You Can't Blame..." and the segment on Marino went into specifics about how the Dolphins drafting completely failed Marino. 

       

      At one time, they passed on taking Thurman Thomas in the 80's, then again they passed on Terrell Davis in the 90's. The video shows how awful his running game was and the defense too. Miami had this streak in the 80's where all their big first round defensive picks were major busts.
