Ok, since most here would like to take a break from the Ricky threads, I decided to start this little thread. Dolphins trivia. There are only a couple of rules......

1. The questions MUST be Phins related and may be from any era.

2. No questions about RW.


Now, I will throw the first question out there and the first to answer correctly gives the next question.....ok......we'll start with something easy.......here we go.

Who was the first Dolphins Head Coach?

That is a good point. George Wilson Jr. was listed as the QB that season, but I was giving him benefit of the doubt. Now, was that a serious case of nepotism or what?

That's a good guess. He is coming close. According to stats that I have seen he is either 10 points ahead or is about 200pts behind, depending on where you look. shy of being the all-time leader. I guess it depends on if the numbers for who was considered the leader are career based and not miami based.

Perhaps they need to update the record books. :wink:

Actually I think you're right. They need to update the record books. Mare has 840 WITH Miami, where as Yepremian had 830 with Miami, the other ~200 were with Detroit, New Orleans and Tamba Bay. Good work mate.

EDIT: On a side note, Mare could shatter Yepremian's record this year and it would be for the same number of years Yepremian was with the Dolphins.

Found it. The all-time leading scorer is Garo Yepremian. In 14 season he scored 1,074 points, converting 210 out of 313 field goal attempts (67.1) and 444 of 464 extra points attempts (95.7).

Yep, but 5 of those 14 years were with other teams. I think you're correct. 830 of those were with Miami.

EDIT: And some fans are still wanting to get rid of Mare. heh,heh... go figure. :lol:

is it Mare or no?

BlitPhinFan

So...

is it Mare or no?

I am going to have to say yes. I didn't realize how close he was to Yepremian before last season. The stats show Mare with 840 and Yepremian with 830, so it looks like the Miami record books need to be changed.

Pardon me if your english isn't so good, but can you rephrase that in a little clearer manner? Not getting the point, are we to name the backup QB that replaced Marino?

Marino completed one pass to become the first Qb to ever have over 60, 000 yards total passing. Although losing to the Pats (what else is new :fire: ) Damon Huard comes in to win the game.
