Dan Marino Speaker Profile
Hall of Fame Quarterback for the Miami Dolphins
Dan Marino Biography
Dan Marino was born September 15, 1961 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and is a Hall of Fame quarterback who played for the Miami Dolphins in the National Football League. The last quarterback of the Quarterback Class of 1983 to be taken in the first round, Marino became one of the most prolific quarterbacks in league history, holding or having held almost every major NFL passing record. Despite never being on a Super Bowl-winning team, he is recognized as one of the greatest quarterbacks in American football history. Remembered particularly for having a quick release and a powerful arm, Marino drove the Dolphins into the playoffs on numerous occasions.
During Marino's professional career (1983-1999) in Miami, he was one of the most skilled and revered quarterbacks in the game. Marino's release was incredibly quick, one of his most important weapons. Also, despite the fact that he was not known for his scrambling ability (he averaged less than 1 yard per carry on his 301 career rushing attempts), Marino possessed an uncanny awareness in the pocket, often sliding a step or two to avoid the pass rush. He has the third most fourth quarter comebacks (37) in the history of the NFL, and the third most wins by a starting quarterback (147). John Elway and Brett Favre are ahead in both stats.
The last game that Marino had won was a Wild-Card Game against the Seattle Seahawks in the Kingdome in 2000
Marino was selected to play in nine Pro Bowls (1983-87, 1991-92, 1994-95), seven times as a starter, but due to injuries he only played in two of the games (1984, 1992). (Marino usually had knee surgery following every season.) He was named first- or second-team All-Pro eight times and earned All-AFC honors six times.
In 1999, Marino was ranked number 27 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Football Players, making him the highest-ranking Dolphins player.
