        Marino is the only Dolphin HOF player to be inducted that played from his era. Elway had Shannon Sharp. Also think TD, Rod Smith, Atwater and maybe even mecklenburg get in in the next few years. We also had a defense that was in the bottom half of the NFL the vast majority of his career. He had a couple offense weapon here and there and only had 1 1,00o yard rusher his entire career, Kareem Abdul Jamar. Elway had 8 1,000 yard rushers, TD 4 times, Bobby Humphrey 2 times, Sammy Winder and Gaston Green each once.


        The facts dont seem to back up this claim.

          Good.. I am very grumpy with the team right now, I say make them play in snow and icky weather and in bad conditions until they start learning to play better under pressure. There is really no other way to put it, other than this team folds under pressure. Soft.. whatever you want to call it, they need to toughen up.

            You ignore the fact that Elway made those guys good, while Marino couldn't boost up players in his system.

            Those are all 1000-yard rushers because Elway had Dan Reeves (and his run-run-pass-punt coaching philosophy) for most of his career.

            TD was at the tail-end of Elway's career, and you can't honestly believe that Bobby Humphrey and Sammy Winder are worthy backs? They got yards because they got carries... and that actually hurt Elway's stat-line.

            Sharpe was good... we Elway had Rod Smith for a spell, too. I just think that overall Marino had a decent supporting cast. But... I'll give you the benefit of a doubt and call it a wash... I'll even give Marino a slight edge in accuracy. The rest of my post still stands.

              Look at the players Manning and Brady have brought up... who have tried to go to other teams/QBs and failed miserably.

                  ^^^^^^This! I don't give a **** if they slide into cheatboro sideways driving a car Johnny Cash built. This team is soft or it's time for action. So far they are , and I mean that TOP to bottom!

                      Ah yes. Thank you, you and others.

                      Still, we're 5-11-1 all time against Miami. I know I'm starting to creep into "older fan" territory, but my recollection of Miami games as I grew up were a handful of wins sprinkled over an assortment of losses. I hope this week coming home we do better.

                        If that rams qb whatshisname can throw all over us, tannehill is going to have a field day. Manning better bring a few extra pair of panties as well!

                          I think those two have been missing from our coaches.

                            wait.

                            are you saying that having Manning take a knee before halftime with 0:45 on the clock and 3 TOs is NOT being aggressive?

                            because that bit of news might shake Dove Valley to its foundations.

                              While it is a team sport, Dan Marino's last two playoffs seasons saw his Dolphins get crushed by the combined score of 100-10

                              38-3 to Broncos

                              62-7 to Jags

                                My most vivid Peyton memory is him killing us in a snow game, the guy is fine in cold weather.
