Marino Monday: Every touchdown pass from Dan Marino’s 1983 rookie season

New, comments

Welcome to Marino Mondays!

Over the next few months, I’m going to be searching the internet looking for some of the GOAT’s best performances throughout his Hall of Fame career. And although the end result might not always be a Miami Dolphins’ victory, I assure you Marino will look damn good throwing the football. These videos will showcase Marino’s rocket arm. They will show off his ability to move effortlessly around in the pocket. You will have a chance to see his lightning quick release and pinpoint accuracy. Most of all, you will get to relive your childhood, and what made most of us fall in love with the Miami Dolphins.

Without further ado, the seventh installment in the Marino Monday series


Admittedly, I was not alive during Dan Marino’s rookie season. But that doesn’t mean I have not seen footage of the great one, transitioning seamlessly to the NFL game. Earlier in this series, I showcased Marino’s first start vs the Buffalo Bills. It was a rocky start but once he settled in, you started to see the potential for greatness. Throughout Marino’s 1983 season, he completed 173/296 passes for 2,210 yards, 20 touchdowns and 6 interceptions.

Here is a look at all 20 of his touchdown passes.
