8.It’s tempting to depict Dan Marino by statistics because his stats are so eye-catching.Passing yards: 61,631.Touchdown passes: 420.Completed passes: 4,967.Touchdown-interception differential: 168.Each of them was an NFL record when Marino retired.
He concluded his career with more than 40 NFL records, but many of them have since been broken as the league evolves.

Dan had an intuitive aptitude.” “There was an arm that could have been used as a military weapon.”
Everyone else’s throws looked average, if not soft, in comparison to his.
“I would have loved to have had Dan when he was in his heyday because when he was in his prime, he threw the ball better than any quarterback perhaps who has ever played the game,” Jimmy Johnson, Marino’s final four-year coach, said.

The Cleveland Browns have unveiled vintage outfits to commemorate their 75th anniversary.

This season, Tim Hasselbeck and Booger McFarland give their clubs a chance to erase their Super Bowl droughts.
(1:39) The Cleveland Browns have announced that they would wear vintage uniforms this season to commemorate their 75th season.
The outfit commemorates Cleveland’s first season in the All-American Football Conference in 1946.
White jerseys with brown numbers and an orange shadow-box with white leggings will be worn.
Numbers will be on the sides of the helmets, and gray facemasks will be worn.
In a press statement, Browns executive vice president JW Johnson remarked, “The Browns are one of those iconic franchises in all sports, not just the NFL.”
“We wanted to pay homage to the past and the players who paved the road for the club we have today,” he said. The Browns were a dominant franchise in those uniforms.
Before the AAFC was disbanded and the Browns joined the NFL, they won three of the next six NFL championships (1950-55).
The current Browns were a wild card club last season and are attempting to make the playoffs for the first time since making the playoffs five years in a row from 1985 to 1989.
The Browns have yet to announce which games they will wear this look in.
