Marshall doing well carrying passing game

So now it falls to Brandon Marshall again. Now that the Randy Moss dream came and went, now that the Dolphins kicked the tires on Randy Moss and decided not to rent the enigmatic wide receiver, Marshall is once again the only legit downfield threat the Dolphins can turn to.

Problem is there are whispers that Marshall isn't having a great season. He does, after all, have only one touchdown compared to 23 TDs his past three seasons in Denver -- a 7.6 TDs per year average.

Fine, I'll give you that he's not being as productive with the crooked number. But you must give me that the offensive approach in Miami in the red zone is lacking. The Dolphins cannot figure out how to get Marshall open and free of double-coverage in that area. (Suggestion: Put him in motion every once in a while, people!)

Anyway, aside for the scoring catches, Marshall is actually on pace to have a better season than he's ever had. Check out the graph below.

Marshall is on pace for 107 catches this season. That would be a career high.

Marshall is also on pace for 1,344 yards this season. That would be a career high.

His current 12.5 yards per catch average is higher than he had the past two seasons in Denver -- when he made the Pro Bowl.

Marshall is doing just fine, thank you.

Could he have used the help of having Randy Moss on the other side of the field? Absolutely!

Is the situation hopeless with only Marshall on the team?

No.

pats and jets play browns and lions and Dolphins get Ravens this week...
Wow... its Tough being a DolFan.

Don't you mean traveling circus Odin?

I don't understand why you, or others get so defensive when someone points out FACTS.

FACT Dansby has ZERO INT's
FACT Dansby has ZERO FF's
FACT Dansby has ZERO FR's
FACT Dansby has ONE SACK (Unblocked)
FACT Dansby has 34 Tackles
FACT Dansby has JESUS

FACT: Those #'s don't scream "Best LB in the NFL"

FACT: Those #'s don't justify being the highest paid LB in the NFL

You can call me whatever you want, but, I'm just stating FACTS

Chad, you say there are holes in the Ravens secondary; well, and there goes Ed Reed with a pick6. If there is a time to be conservative passing the football it will be on Sunday.

D C Dolfan is a MORON.

The Dolphins coaching panel needs to become a little more agressive from here on in...This team has needed TIME for all the new players to gel and for the new ideas to sink in...ok...thats enough time now..

Sparano please let these guys play a more natural instinctive game....become the aggressors....

Hartline is doing a great job. I really like his overall game. If you pay attention, you will notice that he makes quite a few key blocks in addition to some very nice catches. I think our receivers overall are as good as any in the league.

Looking at teams like N.O. and N.E., their 2nd and 3rd receivers have comparable numbers to Hartline. I don't see what anyone is complaining about.

Marshall is top 5 in the league in targets. You people are making up things to whine about. If anything you should be whining about the play calling and the run game.

Also, I love the fist pump. Good enthusiasm. Sparano is doing alright.

Problem with team is not the offensive coordinator. His only problem is that he's unimaginative and relies on the run to set up the pass. When challenged to do it the other way around he's helpless. The real problem is that Ronnie Brown still isn't very good. When players recover from surgery, they can play in about a year, but they don't really return to themselves until the second year. When Ronnie Brown is healthy and football fast, everything works including the wildcat, when he is fast on paper but not football fast then our entire offense suffers. We should run way more plays for Ricky, but he still has fumble-itis. This year we need to draft a big fast durable running back who doesn't fumble.

Dan Henning will appear to be much improved once that happens.

ChadP has a Bulb with lots of wattage. Armando, you took out some commentaries that were written yesterday and this morning. Besides liking football I comment on this Blog because of other non-profitable reasons. Did you know that?

Yeah well Randy @ 50% effort will get single coverage for Big Brandon or Bess..No Moss in New England and not a peep from Mr. Welker since Moss left.....Mr. Harvin was doing absolutely nothing til Moss got there now lets see what he does.... Moss changes everything just being there..I wanted him but just for this year tho...

Game trade has really the grown in the past several years. It was once that the PC poker games have been fairly easy the applications, offering little or no realism to then the game play. The computer players would all be the very predictable, there could be no real cash the concerned, and even graphics can be lousy.
