Quotes

Chris Hinton: I always used to get kidded by the guys on the Colts, "We could've had Elway instead of you," and I'd say, "Yeah, but you wouldn't have had anybody to block for him." It was a good career, but I'll always be known as the guy traded for John Elway.

No surprises here...another good "30 for 30" episode...
10 December 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This film is yet another excellent installment of the ESPN series "30 for 30" and focuses on the NFL draft that brought John Elway and Dan Marino into pro football (as well as MANY other great players, including Darrell Green and Jim Kelly). The reason the two were highlighted is because arguably the two are among the best quarterbacks in NFL history, they were represented by the same agent and their back stories were very different. The show is well constructed, has tons of great interviews, questions Robert Irsay's sanity (and ANY film doing that has my blessing!) and keeps your attention even if, like me, you are not particularly a fan of football. Well worth your time and a nice walk down memory lane.
