...to realize that John Beck is the 12th QB to start since Dan Marino retired.
Since Marino was drafted, here are the guys who have played at QB:
(during Marino's tenure):
....among them, the only rookies to play were Marino, Pederson, and Doxzon.
Doxzon never started and only played some mop-up duty in a game.
Pederson is a different story. He started a few games as a rookie when both Marino and DeBerg went down with injuries. AND, he was the QB when Shula won his historic 327th game.
So, in 24 years, only 2 rookies have started a game at QB for Miami. Until this weekend. I guess that is a cause for some optimism.
