Default If Marino had played with the steelers ...

In your opinion, how the steelers have won SB between 1983 to 1999?

1.

Then the holier than thou crowd would have run him out of town for some reason or other. Bubby would have been most popular Steeler (for a bit).

Well, let's see.

1984: Marino beat us head to head in the AFCCG. If he's in black and gold we at least make the Super Bowl.

1987: We missed the playoffs by one game after Mark Malone threw one TD and eleven interceptions down the stretch. Probably don't win a Lombardi but we make the playoffs for sure and anything can happen.

1992: Instead of a first year starter with no playoff experience we have a seasoned veteran at QB. That means no pick-six in the red zone against the Bills, we probably end up in the Super Bowl.

1994 and 1995: We don't come up just short in 1994 or throw two picks in 1995.

1997: Marino doesn't throw two picks in the last five minutes against Denver.

Now, even with Marino a couple of those teams find a way to lose. That's what happens in football...but I'll say he wins at least two.

I think an equally interesting question is what if we didn't make that 1990 trade with Dallas and we stay at 17 and draft Emmitt Smith.

He wasn't meant for the Steelers. The offnese would've transformed into an aerial circus. That's not who we are.

At LEAST two. IMO, we beat Dallas in SB XXX because we had their D sucking wind and on the ropes late in the game when O'Donnell threw the final backbreaking INT, and instead of Terrell Davis running the ball down the Packers' throats in SB XXXII, it would have been the Bus in his prime doing it. And we'd be working on Lombardi #9 or 10 as opposed to #7 right now.

I said 2 just because of how dam good Cowher's units were in the 90's other than the QB situation and sometimes the special teams. I think Super bowl XXX is ours for the taking if Marino was on our squad, and at least one other...

The rumor was that Marino was on drugs, supposedly started by PSU students That is why we passed on him. Any old guys remember that? He really would have looked good in the black and gold.
