OH, so THAT'S why I have 50 pairs of Isotoners in my closet.

Marino was maybe a better passer, but he sure as hell wasn’t a better QB.

The only time Marino was on an AFC champion was when Kelly was in the USFL.  Once Kelly joined the Bills, Marino never got to another Super Bowl.   Every time Dan Marino came close to the Super B

Why is the Kelly vs Marino thread closed? 

 

I'm just trying to grasp the rules around here. 

 

Thanks. 

 

Because Dunkirk Don changed his screen name to that OP and is making frivolous posts left and right.

ok got it. I'm not around enough to sniff out some of the troublemakers here. 

 

 I thought it was an interesting topic with some thoughtful posts. would be nice to just freeze or ban posters who are not contributing with good intentions, while also deleting posts that do not further the conversation.

I dont think it was so much the thread subject as it was the OP who created it and his terrible history of posts. 

 

Yeah, what Bferra13 said.

 

So far his four threads that I can remember are...

- Telling us who Jim Kelly is.

- A thread simply saying "This is my first real post" and nothing else.

- Telling us what the Music City Miracle was.

- The Kelly vs Marino thread.

 

All written in the style of a semi-literate grade schooler's book report, and they never come back to the tread after posting it.  Seems like either a troll, or a kid with a developmental disability unable to understand forum rules.

I think this is where I stand, but I am 39 years old, so watched them as a pre teen and teen. Marino definitely seems to have the edge in skills. But I didn't know what I was watching enough to look at different intangibles, decision making, leadership, etc.

Because it's been discussed here hundreds of times over the years. No new info.

I'm as Buffalo as it comes but I don't think this is true. I wonder if we would have won some of those SB's with Marino. We had great defenses, special teams and better tight ends and a deeper WR corp AND runnings backs

 

He had Mark Duper

It blows my mind that they never got Marino a RB. They had no running game his entire career 

 

He had RBs but his fakes were terrible and RBs got tackled quickly making it ineffective.

Was at a bar called Greveys during Superbowl years and every time Marino was going to fake it bar patrons would yell fake before he did it.

He was better actor in commercials than on the field.

I think Jim Kelly was a good QB and its not his fault we lost 4 consecutive super bowls.  Jim Kelly was a very good quarterback.

We had guys recovering from hangovers, and were sadly out coached at critical points of games. That and Kelly routinely beat Marino over a long period of time.

So you are saying Bills had better front office.

Would strongly recommend re-visiting "The 4 Falls of Buffalo" as well as "Elway to Marino" and "Dan Marino" for some more in-depth storytelling on both of these HOFers and their respective on-field prowess. ESPN may rightfully be criticized for their coverage quality drop off on-air, but these  specials were on-point, and very well done, imho.

Yeah, they only had one 1,000 rusher during Marino's 17-year tenure there: 1996 with Karim Abdul-Jabbar with 1,116 yards.

Blows my mind how his hair held a curl after removing his helmet. 

 

Uncanny.
