Richard Earl "Dick" Shiner (born July 18, 1942 in Lebanon, Pennsylvania) is a former professional American football quarterback who played in eleven National Football League seasons from 1964-1974 for six different teams.

College[edit]

He played college football at the University of Maryland. In his first collegiate start, Shiner led Maryland to the school's lone victory against Penn State in the 37-game series.[1]

Professional football[edit]

Shiner was drafted in the seventh round of the 1964 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins. Shiner was also selected in the 20th round of the 1964 AFL Draft by the New York Jets.

Shiner played sparingly in his first four seasons in the NFL. From 1964 to 1966, he backed up future Hall of Fame quarterback Sonny Jurgensen with the Redskins and started only one game, in 1965, in those three years. Moving to the Cleveland Browns for 1967, Shiner was a backup to former All-Pro Frank Ryan, and again saw few chances to play, starting no games and attempting only nine passes all season.[2]

Shiner's big break came on May 14, 1968, when the Browns traded Shiner, a draft choice to be named later and defensive tackle Frank Parker to the Pittsburgh Steelers for another quarterback, Bill Nelsen, and safety Jim Bradshaw, with both quarterbacks getting more playing chances with their new teams.[3] Shiner took over as the starting quarterback for the Steelers in week 4 from Kent Nix, in a game in Cleveland against the Browns, facing Nelsen. Shiner started the rest of the season. He went on to start nine games for the 1969 Steelers (the first season in which Chuck Noll served as Steelers head coach), including their Opening Day win over the Detroit Lions. That first win was the only one of the season, with the Steelers going 1–13 on the year, with a defense that gave up the most points in the NFL—an average of nearly 29 points per game.[4][5][6] As Pittsburgh took future Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw with the first pick of the 1970 draft, Shiner left the Steelers and backed up yet another Hall of Fame quarterback, Fran Tarkenton, with the New York Giants. After one season with the Giants, he moved on to the Atlanta Falcons.

On September 16, 1973, while playing for the Falcons in a game against the New Orleans Saints, Shiner became the first person to post a perfect passer rating, during what was the first season in which the statistic was officially kept. However, multiple other quarterbacks are recognized retroactively to have accomplished this feat prior to the 1973 season.[citation needed] Shiner completed 13 of 15 pass attempts for 227 yards and 3 touchdowns, with no interceptions. The next week in being shut out against the Rams, Shiner would go on to post a lowest possible 0.0 QB rating (unofficially, as he only attempted nine passes).[citation needed]

Shiner's career came to a close with one game for the 1974 New England Patriots. Once again, Shiner's role in 1974 was to be the backup to a prominent quarterback—this time Jim Plunkett. Shiner was sent into his only appearance in the 1974 regular season with the Patriots holding a 35–3 lead against the Baltimore Colts. After leading the Patriots on an 80-yard touchdown drive, Shiner took himself out of the game to give third-string quarterback Neil Graff a chance to play in Graff's first NFL regular-season contest. In an interview four decades later, Shiner said, "I wanted Neil Graff to get experience. Neil was a good kid, and I knew my time in the NFL was coming to an end."[7]

Post NFL[edit]

After retiring from the NFL, Shiner worked in the beer distribution and copier businesses. After retiring, he has been the backfield coach for the football team at Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania [8] and has also been an assistant coach at Hershey High School in Hershey, Pennsylvania.[9] In 2007, Shiner was named a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference Football Legends Class. He also is a member of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Hall of Fame, Maryland M Club Hall of Fame, and Lebanon (PA) High School Hall of Fame. He is married, has three children and lives in Palmyra, Pennsylvania.
