Dan Marino Has Strong Words About Bill Belichick; DeShaun Watson Headed To The Miami Dolphins?

Written by Chris Powers

NFL Hall of Fame quarterback had some strong words to say about current New England Patriots head coach, Bill Belichick earlier today. Marino’s former head coach with the Miami Dolphins, Don Shula, holds the record for most NFL career wins with 328 (347 including playoffs).

Bill Belichick however is close to surpassing that record as he currently sits at 280 wins. While it would obviously take three great seasons to surpass that record, Belichick is the next coach primes to do so.

During a recent interview, Dan Marino was very vocal about Belichick not breaking the record and spoke very fondly of Coach Shula.

“I hope he don’t get it,” Marino said emphatically. “I’m a Dolphin for life. Coach Shula for life. I don’t want him to get it.”

“He was the best. He took care of me all the time. He was an incredible man and head coach. He taught me how to be in the community, be a leader, work hard. But from day one — which I thought was genius — he said, ‘I want you to be the starting QB, so you have to learn this quickly, and now you’re going to call all your plays in practice and exhibition games,'” Marino said. “It takes more work instead of a coach telling you what to run — you have to think about it beforehand, you have to prepare for it beforehand.

“I always thought that was special, and probably different than what a lot of people do now, I’d imagine. It would be a lot harder to do it now than it was then, but it did put a lot of pressure on me to learn quickly.”

In other NFL news, ESPN NFL Insider commented on the Miami Dolphins possibly trading Tua Tagovailoa for the right candidate. While they are committed to him, they would be willing to trade him for the right guy.

“The Dolphins are committed to Tua and building around him, unless Deshaun Watson becomes a possibility again,” said Graziano. “There’s a quarterback or two out there that could distract them from their commitment to Tua.”
