Joe Namath's release was kinda Marino-like but I understand he was
nowhere as consistant (or prolific) as Marino.
For me the guy who reminded me of Marino was Kurt Warner with the 99
Rams - in fact when they took their passing attack and started
carving up defenses I became a Warner fan for life. Helped that he
I also like Manning. I thought his 49 TD season wasn't as great as
Marino's 48 simply because he only surpassed the record, he didn't
shatter it Like Marino did, nor did he ever get close again like
Marino did in 86. Same with Brady's 50.
The thing I find frustrating about Manning is maybe what non-Marino
fans but non-haters find frustrating about Marino. He was unable to
best Belichick or Gregg Williams with his arm in the big game. Except
that one time. which let him to the big game 4 years ago. If we could
only have beaten Buffalo in 92. or the Pats in 85. Or San Diego and
Pittsburgh in 94. If we could only have sorted out free agency after
the 94 season. Then Marino might have been thought of as the best QB
and not just the best pure passer.
