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.

    • With the standard the Hall of Fame has set for itself, Eli Manning belongs. But if he never won a Super Bowl, he wouldn’t be in the conversation. His stats wouldn’t get him there alone like Marino.

    • Heres why Dan failed point blank period the dolphins organization,i give credit to some for sayn it,but they didn't spend money on what they needed and rode the studs they did have into the dirt without thought on support players . I'm from wisconsin yet i can name a mass of dolphin players even David woodley,or a wisc native John offerdahl?I admitt i wasn't a fan i was a phinnatic!

  • In a nutshell? The NFC was just too strong in the 80's and the Bill's dominated the early 90's. Then he tore his achilles and was never the same. Still the most exciting QB to watch and a fiery competitor.

  • The Passing Game, entertaining football experience and The Running Game. Entertaining offense makes a crowd gasp at the snap of the ball and again when a running back takes the handoff. But only happens if the running back has gained the fans respect by 3rd down conversions or somehow being the quarterback and the teams BAIL OUT MAN ON 3RD DOWN

Many never even got to play in one. For these players, it just wasn't meant to be.

  • The Dolphins of the late 80s were very similar to the Saints team of 2014-2016. Both teams had potent offenses that ranked near the top of the league and quarterbacks who were setting one record after another but their defenses ranked near or at the bottom. For this reason, both teams were not playoff contenders during those periods.

  • What left Marino empty handed-I wonder how he played when he had his best chances for success-in his 4 championship games. Dan played in 3 Conference Championship games and 1 Super Bowl. How did he play in those 4 games? In the '84 Conf. Champ. game he was very good, but in the other 3, not so much.

    Dennis MumfordDennis Mumford10 dagar sedan
    • In the other 3 which were all losses, Dan had 4 TD's BUT 6 INT's and 2 fumbles, an avg. Passer Rating UNDER 60, and he led his offense to an avg.of only 12 p.p.g. How can a team win championships when their QB is playing like that ?

  • Being a life long Dolphins fan it's difficult to see things any other way when concerning Dan Marino, however I always found it somewhat flattering that when the subject of your favorite football team came up, no matter what team the others in the conversation backed, they'd always speak of Marino with such adoration and enthusiasm. It was like every football fan in the world was a fan of Marino. Winning season or losing season, Super Bowl ring or not, I've never talked to a person who's eyes didn't light up when speaking of Marino. He was not an "underdog", he was a player who's ability and talent transcended the game itself and was probably viewed by most as being an individual master of an art form more than a showpiece member of a legendary squad. Another name that was spoken with the same universal adoration was Barry Sanders.

  • can u name any perennial pro bowlers or hall of famers on this team besides Marino I think the dolphins got in too a malaise of bad drafting and quite frankly coaching shula was a great coach no doubt after those 2 losing seasons back to back they should have let shula go hard to say a lot of times coaches get set in their ways and don't try new concepts especially if you won throughout your career sometimes new fresh energy with fresh concepts are needed

  • I'm about to watch the video right now so I'm saying this before I saw this video but I'm a dolphins fan since 1984 and I always thought that for how good they were in the regular season they just weren't built to win in the playoffs no running game no power not a strong defense to be able to rely on they were predicated on speed but rain and snow and cold reduce speed and they didn't have the power to make up for it.

I heard so many horrible events and more than any # of the month just google it.I graduated from a peer counseling class on Friday Jan.13,2012. I was browsing you tube about 5 years later and was reading about the sinking of the Concordia which happened Jan.13,2012. I’m very superstitious and I won’t do anything on that day
