It’s The Big 50 For #13 Dan Marino
Well this fact may not be celebrated by Buffalo Bills fans, but today, former Miami Dolphins Quarterback and TV sportscaster Dan Marino celebrates his 50th birthday (If it will make you feel better, he’s a good friend of former Bills Quarterback Jim Kelly).
I recall watching Dan Marino in action leading the Dolphins to those late-game wins. In my opinion, he had the quickest pass release in the game, with today’s Peyton Manning close on that one.
A little bio info courtesy of Wikipedia:
“Daniel Constantine “Dan” Marino, Jr. (born September 15, 1961) is a retired American football 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. Best remembered for his quick release and powerful arm, Marino led the Dolphins to the playoffs ten times in his seventeen-season career. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005.
