I think this is a GREAT move for the Dolphins. Spielman is a good evaluator of talent and great fit for the GM job, and Marino is probably the most popular person in Miami. If only he was coming back to play...

Just remember what an unqualified person did to Detroit, playoff team to about 6 wins in 3 years.


Just because people LIKE him doenst mean he will do a good job.

I doubt Marino will have much input. It sounds like a trophy position to me.

I'm really not sold on this move until it produces something. Waldo beat me to the Matt Millen example, but it still stands. I'd just be wary of anyone who never worked a day in the front office heading the front office.

But man, he's just gonna try to get that ring no matter WHAT.

Do we still have to suffer through his "analysis" for the AFC Championship Game and the Super Bowl (aka the Pats' last 2 wins of the year?)

Not sure how much control he will have. Rick Spielman has been made GM and will be in charge of personnel decisions, one would think.

Marino is there to be the Marketing wing of the Football Operations. He is a good guy (big name) to go visit with potential draft picks and free agents.

As the ultimate Marino fan, I am more than willing to give him a chance to prove what he's worth in this role.

It should be very interesting to see what he does with Fiedler. He is due a $2 Million option in April and has a potential salary of $3.7 Million next year. Awfully high for his production rate.

espn.com were reporting earlier that Spielman and Wannstedt would report to Marino, with Marino only having to report to Eddie Jones.

Make of that what you will.

I believe the Dolphins have a higher winning % with Fiedler than they did with Marino. At least thats what the ESPN thing said when I was half asleep.

So does this ensure that the Dolphins will never win another ring? :)

Well, let's see. Hiring the man who retired one of the greatest coaches in football history, Don Shula....

The man who CONSTANTLY complained about not having a running game, then when the team started running, complained about not passing enough....

Oh yeah, good idea.

BTW, Mr. Marino, the only constant in all those years you didn't win the Super Bowl was the QB, Dan Marino.

Not to mention that when Marino got hurt one year DAMON HUARD led them to a 5-1 record in Marino's absence. That's as damning as anything, I'd say.
