Apparently, the term \"quick release\" does not apply solely to his throwing motion.

It\'s true.

Marino resigns from his position with Dolphins
Davie, FL (Sports Network) - Former Miami quarterback Dan Marino has decided not to assume the role as the Dolphins\' senior vice president of football Operations.

Marino informed team owner H. Wayne Huizenga of his decision on Tuesday.

\"Since my retirement as a player, I approached Wayne on numerous occasions about a meaningful position in football operations with the Dolphins.

\"Until recently, such an opportunity didn\'t exist. When it became clear that Wayne was looking to bring in a high-level football executive, I approached him about the position. I knew it would involve a significant lifestyle change but after further reflection, it became clear that those adjustments were ones that my family and I are not prepared to make at this time. As a result, I have decided that it would not be in the best interests of either my family or the Dolphins to assume the role as the team\'s senior vice president of football operations.

\"I am grateful to Wayne for giving me this opportunity, and the last thing I would ever want to do would be to disappoint him, the Miami Dolphins organization, or its fans. I will be happy to help the team out in any way if asked, and I always will be the Dolphins\' number one fan.\"

Marino accepted the job last month to return to the team that he quarterbacked for 17 years. He holds every major passing record for the Dolphins and virtually every such record for the NFL, including most attempts, completions, yards and touchdown passes.

He played for Miami from 1983-99. During his career, he participated in 242 games, including 240 starts, and threw for 61,361 yards and 420 touchdowns.



Sometimes it's better to keep your mouth shut and be thought an idiot, than to open it and remove all doubt!!!!!
