They may or may not be better than Marino but you can argue for any of them. You said that few people say Marino is not the best, which is the main thing I'm arguing. I just did a search for "Greatest All Time Quarterbacks" and Marino is yet to be on the top of any poll or list. He's up there and is most definately in the discussion...and may very well could be #1 but again, to say few people disagree he's number 1 is far from the truth.


You must be looking in places I'm not. Straight from Wiki

Daniel Constantine Marino Jr. (born September 15, 1961 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania of Italian and Polish ancestry) is an American football former quarterback who played for the Miami Dolphins in the National Football League. He holds or has held almost every meaningful NFL passing record and is widely recognized as one of the greatest quarterbacks in football history, despite never winning a Superbowl.

Yes, I came across that too and when did I ever dispute that? Widely recognized as ONE OF THE greatest quarterbacks. I never said he wasn't. I even said he could be #1. My only point was that he's not a consensus #1, which that site also says, and many other people in this thread have agreed with.

Of course not, any all time list is going to be subjective.

I misread what you were trying to say though.

Arod grand slam to put the yanks up 6-4, but he's a choke and this game doesn't really matter. ;-7

Arod answers his critics with his bat.

Yet in the same game he hits a 3 run homer when his team is already up 8 runs(4 of them because of his big fly). Kind of ironic :-b

He answers nothing because I never disputed his numbers. I merely explained why he gets booed by yankee fans when he doesnt come through.

Two curtain calls for A-Rod? They were booing him Friday and Saturday, and those were directly AFTER he hit a walkoff homerun against Atlanta.

Yankee fans piss me off sometimes...

And theyll boo him next game if he fails in a big spot. Mets fans aren't much better, Beltran was being boo'd the first game of the year. So glad that has stopped.

Of all games, why the one Mets game that I see all season? :~(

I mean I left after the sixth inning because it was so depressing.
