   Drafted w/ pick 1.2 by the Tampa Bay Bucs 1983 draft Dan Marino's first 3 seasons w/ the Bucs caught the attention of their NFC West div. rival SF 49ers coaching staff & they remarked if they could get their hands on Marino they could take his raw talent & turn him into a superstar. His Tampa Bay seasons weren't impressive as he was 41% completions 28tds & 21ints his rookie year but had 2,448 yards. His 2nd season he threw for 3,357 yards & 40tds w/ only 8 ints but his completion % was again below average at 46%. He also wasn't on a competitive team - so after his 3rd TB season 28tds & 19ints w/ 2,855 yards the Niners had to do everything they could to get Marino out of Tampa - it took Rookie of the Year max'd out DL Reggie White, two 1st round picks that were used on a rookie Neal Anderson (63MS) and Jim Everett (56PC) along w/ an OL upgrade as well for Marino to come to SF along w/ a TB 2nd round pick. Marino came to SF and it took him 2 seasons to get his team built around him after trading away the house for him and he took some bumps in those seasons as his 1986 season he was 2nd option after Hershel Walker carried the load. This resulted in Marino throwing only 1595 yards w/ 22tds & 5ints. His 2nd season he hit a major wall as he was 46% completions for 1815 yards w/ 26tds & 8ints. He was doing better but still not what SF hoped for. Then came 1988 & Marino made magic winning his 1st MVP by throwing for 2,550 yards w/ 36tds & 5ints - his completion % was 54% and
