It was well established a long time ago that you are a complete homer.
What scouting experience does Marino have?
You may be right about the homer thing Rich.
As far as scouting experience, we've called upon Marino to do this job before and he wad dead right. That lets me know that he is capable of finding a quality franchise quarterback. Is he 100% all the time about quarterbacking talent, who knows. But he is capable, and if he takes it seriously, and I think he will, he likely will be able to repeat the job he did in 2004. Remember Roethlisberger wasn't the first guy off the board that year. He was the 11th pick and the 3rd quarterback off the board. Marino could have been all over Eli Manning or Phillip Rivers but he wasn't, he said to go after Ben Roethlisberger. To this day Roethlisberger has more rings that both of those two quarterbacks combined. I don't think it hurts to hire Marino again to look at all of these guys and give his 2 cents. Of course his input will be weighed and used along with that of the staff that is already there. He might not recommend one at all, it's possible all of these guys could be busts in his eyes. That doesn't mean we won't draft Jake Locker or Ryan Mallett if they are there when we pick. I'm just saying it doesn't hurt to explore all of our options when searching for the most important position on the field.
