The world today according to Brandon Marshall

Brandon Marshall is the most compelling interview on the Dolphins right now because he's smart, he's not afraid to tell you what he thinks, he's sometimes controversial without being venomnous, he's honest, and that all comes wrapped in a package of a player that is a star.

So when Marshall speaks to the local media about once a week for perhaps 10 minutes, it isn't nearly enough time to get to understand the guy or get to know the guy. But it is enough time to be interested by the guy.

Today Brandon Marshall was interesting. But you be the judge:

He was asked about teammate and fellow wide receiver Davone Bess.

"He's one of the best route runners in all of football, ever," Marshall said. "I mean, among today's receivers or ever. You put in any tape and this guy's amazing what he's able to make his body do. He gets open almost every single play. You guys have seen him more than me. You've been around him more. The guy doesn't catch 70-something balls last year just because. There's a reason for that. He's on pace to catch almost 100 balls this year. And I'm excited for him. I'm excited to be able to be on the other side or the same side as him."

Marshall was on the CBS Sports pregame show last weekend. During the time he was there he gushed about cornerback Vontae Davis. Marshall called Davis the best cornerback in the game.

"They asked me who is the best DB in the NFL right now and the NFL is what-have-you-done-for-me-lately league and Vontae Davis is a shutdown corner right now," Marshall said. "Now you have [Darrelle] Revis who's played spottingly [sic] this year so I wouldn't say he's the best right now. You have Champ Bailey who's a little banged up and a little older. He's still great. The league is getting younger. And Vontae is that guy."

Marshall knows that Davis avoids attention. 

"He doesn't like it. He doesn't like the attention," Davis said. "But I'm going to answer the questions truthfully. I don't care if I put a target on his back or not. It is what it is and I expect him to step up every week the way he's been doing."

Marshall was asked if he has changed his pregame routine since offensive coordinator Dan Henning said Marshall gets overly excited before the game and that it could wear him out for the end of the game.

"I don't know why coach Henning said that," Marshall said. "I've never been overworked or overworked myself before a game. I usually take less reps before the game and try to stay calm before the storm comes. I get excited, but I never get overworked up. I'm going to continue to do the same thing I've been doing the past couple of years."

The last time we heard from Marshall was when Sterling Sharpe, Mike Mayock, and Solomon Wilcots took the wide receiver to taks for not giving for effort on the final set of downs in the game versus New York. Marshall disagreed with the trio and said none of them coached so they shouldn't be trying to provide coaching advice and none of them were very good player, either, in their day.

And then Marshall was on set was Sterling Sharpe's brother, Shannon, on the CBS set.

"I was on the set with his brother and everything was kind of smooth," Marshall said. "I was kind of nervous at first because Shannon is so big and in-shape still that I thought he was going to put me in a headlock in between segments. I hate to do this but I have to retract my statement. Sterling Sharpe was a beast. He was pretty good in his day and if he had an opportunity to stay healthy, he would be a Hall of Famer, no doubt about it. The other guys, I'm not sure."

Mr. Odinseye

"I'm Norwegian and Apache.

I'm a halfbreed but the percentages vary pending the time of day"

My father married a pure Apache
My mother's people were ashamed of me
The indians said I was white by law
The White Man always called me "Indian fa sure"

Half-breed, that's all I ever heard
Half-breed, how I learned to hate the word
Half-breed, He's no good they warned
Both sides were against me since the day I was born

We never settled, went from town to town
When you're not welcome you don't hang around
The other children always laughed at me
"Give him a feather, he's a Apache"

Repeat Chorus

We weren't accepted and I felt ashamed
Nineteen I left them, tell me who's to blame
My life since then has been from woman to woman
But it can't run away from what I am

Do you play this in any of your sets ?

Cher was Hot about 40 years ago...them long legs and big nose...awsome

Soiled :)



New post up...............

Bess is just like welker

Sometimes, this blog cracks me up!

We've got some guy (Jon) who wants us to bring back an old Offensive Coordinator (Norv Turner) even though everyone knows his offence (run-run-pass)!
Another guy in Canada, thinks I'm a girl! Trust me, I'm not!
We've got stock predictions, menu planners, recipes, audiophiles, musicians, rejects from other teams (and some just rejects), paranoid schizophrenics, closet homosexuals (and some not in the closet), sex addicts, Monday morning quarterbacks, frustrated coach wannabes, shut-ins, guys living in their parent's basements, guys that aren't sure who one (or more) of their parents are, and assorted weirdos, kooks, freaks, etcm
Isn't Dolphin Footbal great?!!! Go Fins!

people, yes Bess played in a pass happy offense in Hawaii but he still had to catch the ball. If the fins don't pay this kid what he is worth, yes he will go elsewhere. Also, the fins are a run first offense and the Pats are a pass happy offnese. 3-1 vs 2-2 and 1-3 in the division. can you say 7-9 at Bess. Need to pass the ball more. the NFL is a pass league. Get with the program Miami
