Brandon Marshall: 'It's too calm' around the Dolphins

Brandon Marshall hasn't been on the field since the Chicago game two weeks ago. He hasn't been in the end zone but once this season.

The guy's obviously bored. (I know the feeling, by the way as I cover team mediocre.)

Anyway, Marshall today said his hamstring that has kept him out of the line is "feeling fine" so that suggests he'll be playing Sunday against Cleveland. What he does with that opportunity is unclear because Marshall wants to make it unpredictable.

"I've been thinking of other ways where I can push the envelope without getting penalties or getting fined," Marshall said while talking about the taunting penalty he got for playfully tossing a caught ball at former Denver teammate Jay Cutler two weeks ago. "I got to get creative. I've been too boring this year.

"Of course, I got only one touchdown, but If I get in the end zone, I need to do some celebration or something. Do something. Any ideas, let me know. Just give me something. Something! I don't know, say something. Spark some controversy. It's too calm."

OK, you heard the man. He wants suggestions of what he should do to stir things up a bit. Get to it, people!

Marshall should spike the ball making it look like he started the HAARP earthquake

cuz we know NWO HAARP WOMD wants to trigger the big one in California/Oregon

coming soon

That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane,
Lenny Bruce is not afraid
Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn - world
Serves its own needs, dont misserve your own needs. Feed
It off an aux speak, grunt, no, strength,turn, ladder
Start to clatter with fear fight down height. Wire
In a fire, representing seven games, in a government
For hire and a combat site. Left of west and coming in
A hurry with the furies breathing down your neck. Team
By team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered cropped
Look at that low playing! Fine, then. Uh oh,
Overflow, population, common food, but it'll do. Save
Yourself, serve yourself. World serves its own needs,
Listen to your heart bleed dummy with the rapture and
The revered and the right, right. You vitriolic,
Patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty
Psyched

It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine

Brandon,

As I am probably your biggest fan on this blog, I'd like to offer a piece of constructive criticism. I bought your jersey the first day it was on the market and think you're a Top 3 WR in this league. You're getting lots of heat from here, some off-the-wall, some of it deserved, and I'd prefer you stay here awhile than get yourself shipped out (a la J Peezy).

So, I say this as an admirer and a huge fan and with all due respect. DO YOUR JOB!

Your job isn't to be the team clown, nor is it to make the refs lives easy by making flagrant fouls, nor is it to "motivate" others by acting like an arse. You're what, 26, 27? Old enough to grow the hell up and be a man. Sure, you're playing a game, sure, you're the most talented player at your position on this team. Sure, you're needed here. But Miami isn't a team that stands for foolishness for too long. "If you don't know, now you know, know..."

Have fun, sure. Do you. But right now, you promised Miami would make the Playoffs, and they have an 8% chance. One more loss, and it'll be 0%, so really, is there anything to be so happy about? Do you like being mediocre? Do you enjoy not getting paid for making the Playoffs? Watching other teams play while you're sitting at home. I doubt it.

So temper that need to shake things up. Calm is good for learning, for progressing, for getting into a groove with the rest of your team. Here's my final suggestion, be calm rest of the year, endear yourself to the fans and players by showing your a true professional. Then come back next season, all of you on the same page, start fast and win, and then you can clown (as long as you're winning). Clown all the way into the Playoffs for all we care.

But to clown while you're losing, or stuck at .500, that's not cool. That's not cute. That's annoying, and very abrasive to the fans you're trying to impress.

Championship teams celebrate championships. Losing teams celebrate scores. More than likely because its something they are not accustomed to that often.

You're starting to scare the children DB so stop with the alien talk.

DC Dolfan,

Great post! You seem to have hit the nail right on the head.

Marshall would never survive in the worst HAARP created freeze and snow storms in over 30 years thru out Europe, and of course Winter does not start for 3 more weeks

God Bless as the New World Order thins the population through creating severe weather, nuclear war and financial collapse all around the globe

Soon u will be begging to get to a nice warm FEMA camp and be tantalized with a bowl of hot soup

Merry Christmas

Cocojoe,

You're starting to scare the children DB so stop with the alien talk.

Havent youn noticed I am an alien living amongst you? Have you ever considered why I have privy to the information I posted about?

Have you considered that the primary reason "aliens" can live amongst you is that Earthling really dont believe we exist? Have you ever considered that the higher intelligence creating humans would actually allow them to permanently govern themselves?

John Gruden,

"I Will Not Be Taking My Talents To South Beach!"

DB,

I agree Luck hasn't faced top-notch defences to this point. But I've watched the guy a couple of times and he's good....very good! There are a lot of people really touting this guy as 'the next great QB'. Is he? Who knows. But I've seen him on TV and I've seen film of him and he looks to have all the tools. Sam Bradford has had a heck of a rookie season and before him sane thing with Ryan and Flacco. If this STARTS off nearly as good as either of these two, look out!! Having Harbaugh with him would make his transition easier. Let's watch and see who's right.

I don't know Odin, are you the same guy that posts under a million nicknames?

If not, I'll still buy you a hooker. Why not

DB,

I've said it for a while now but I think John Gruden ends up in Denver next year. I think Bowlen finally gets smart and cuts his losses with McDaniels and lands a 'name' to try and bring his franchise back. I also think SF will try and go after him too.

DB,

I know you're not going to believe this, but it's true.

After having taken way to many valiums and repeatedly riding the Demon Drop at Cedar Point, I have had the abilitiy to see you aliens.

It was a little creepy at first, but man are alien chicks hot or what? Talented too!

Thanks DB.

And we don't need Gruden. If anyone, I'm with Mark, I like maybe a young college coach ready to take a shot at the next level. Or a young Raheem Morris-type position/line coach or coordinator. I like this youth movement with coaches. They seem to get into their players heads better, communicate with them better.

But not until next year. Tony gets 1 more year to prove his worth. After next year we'll be able to surely tell if we need a new coach or not.

CraigM,

Wasnt Ryan Leaf and others like him also touted "the next great qb's"? What we also need to sometimes consider is you can take a crappy nfl qb and put him on collegiate team and he too may look like the 2nd coming of Peyton Manning.

Though in itself it isnt an all or none indicator, but for now "calibre of competition" maybe the best indicator of boom or bust we possess. Im sure if an in depth study's done it would predict far more accuracies than inaccuracies.

Here's a novel idea for Brandon: Find the endzone.

Crazy, I know.

Marc,

I'm an A-hole and an idiot.

Still, I only post as me.

Now on to more important things!

Right now I'm in the mood for a tall, dark complected one with Stillettos and a Gold tooth. I know I don't have to tell you female, right..........?

how about u start with a touchdown

Odinseye,

You Earthlings portray us as these distorted varying figures. The ranges of which totally amuses us. The fact is we look just like you. LOL

Remember God said let's make man in "OUR" own image? Have you ever wondered about the differences of races? Have you considered several different "angelic races" exist?

Have you considered each different Angelic races were assigned a different region on Earth to create man in "thier" own image? Even amongst yourselves when peering at eachother you see so'called alien presence, even when staring at your very selves in your mirrors. LOL

Odineyes,

Heavenly universal war begin because angels(what you call ET's) became split about "serving" the new coming race of beings called man. Many considered we are more advanced and man should be serving us. The Universal creator(God) had mandatd this and a rebellion was formed.

As you know the rebellion was put down. Still much collateral damage had been done. The universal creator is allowing evrything to readjust itself and certain things must come to pass. Eventually full order will be restored and the original blueprint since the beginning will re-establish itself.

I have already told you more than I should but its still within the guidelines of what you already may or should know.

DB

OK, just stop it, just stop.

I'm hitting the liquor cabinet, the gun cabinet and I'm diving under the bed.

all he has to do is go out there play hard catch the damn ball, score some td's and don't do that stupid sh$t that costs the team to go backwards!

Odinseye,

I'll say this then stop. Everything is the way it today because "universal citizens" who are more powerful and technilogically advanced rebelled against being subservient to the "new kid" on the universal block which is MAN.

Odinseye,

You should also beware that the "universal citizen population" that was put down in rebellion also dwell amongst you on Earth. They are leading mankind to the eventual Armegeddon that is surely to come. The universe must be retored to "full order."

"I bring you greetings mankind, everything crooked will be made straight. Be steadfast and know that I am with you!"

People who believe conspiracy theories are as dim witted as the people who believed in the legitimacy of The Onion story that Fox Nation presented as real news.

DB,

All joking aside!

Odin was one of the rebellions leaders. He thought of the Creator in much the same ways that you think of Dan Henning. I felt I could do, I mean HE felt HE could do a better job.

Worship a HUMAN!?!? HA!

Odin was banished and sent to the Netherworld or what you call the Netherlands today.

Ragnarok is just another name for Armageddon!

BRING IT ON!!!!

Valhalla!!!!

I would love to see Brandon in the end zone then come back the next set and do it again. Just to shut up all the people who obsess about him. From my perspective Brandon is on track to set the all time Dolphin record for the number of receptions in a season beating giants like Duper, Clayton, and Warfield. That is pretty good. I hope he does so every year for the next 10 as a Dolphin. He is a star.

"The guy's obviously bored. (I know the feeling, by the way as I cover team mediocre.)"

You're BORED? Have you lost your mind? There are people all over the country struggling to put food on the table for their families and then there's you. A guy who gets to meet famous people every day, fly to interesting cities all around the country on the companies dime, have a radio show, etc. AND YOU'RE BORED because the team you cover is in the middle of the pack?!!!?!

You really shouldn't be writing things like that unless you want to come off as a completely clueless putz. Think a little before you write. God I wish I could be as bored as you.

maybe instead of throwing the ball at the other team throw the ball into the stands,haha

I'm wearing lederhosen and vinyl go-go boots.

there's a strong rumor in few places saying this year could be the las for B.marshall to wear a dolphin jersey .

last

Valhalla! ValHalla!

We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying: Valhalla, I am coming!

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.


Valhalla! Valhalla!

We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
How soft your fields so green, can whisper tales of gore,
Of how we calmed the tides of war. We are your overlords.

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.


Celebration!?! Heck just act like you've been there before.

Hand the ball to to the ref and act like you've been there before, even if only once!!!

the vikings are known through HISTORY TO SAVAGES ,they go where the weak and rape women and kill children and steal the gold and silver .

Valhalla

Cowboys look primed to finish 5-11 to 6-10 with Indy and Philly(twice) on thier remaining 5 game schedule. They are currently 3-8.

Reason for bringing this up is maybe Jerry Jones is interested in a B-Marsh trade. With a final 6-10 to 5-11 record we would be in very nice position trading Marshall for at least a 2nd rd 2011 pick which we currently do not have.

If we're lucky we can get a 2011 2nd and 3rd pick for Marshall from Jerry Jones. Plus Marshall fits in perfectly with the whirling derbish of disfunctionality called the Dallas Cowboys.

the Cowboyes needs a QB not a new diva ,they have enough .

Brandon Marshall's fast becoming concrete proof that talent may not always trumph s disfunctionality.

DB, NICE QOUTE @ 7;27.SPEAK WOLUME OF YOUR EDUCATION .

Speaking of Cowboys, if I were Dolphins GM(Ireland) I would even be interested in trading Brandon Marshall for Miles Austin straight up.

there is a strong rumor going around saying that aloco is going to be grudens new private personal assistant.

Just STOP with the trade talk of MARSHALL!

What's wrong with you people?!

Odin, I don't even know where you live. Where should I send the hooker?

Great story by NFL films on, u guessed it ... Simply The Bess

Found it at the Palm Beach Post
look on Dolphins latest news over on left
Davonne Bess NFL films

Great Story from his tough roots
to getting pinched for basically driving
only had one encounter with the police

Makes you really wanna root for the guy

saw him since day one Dolphin Camp and have been one of his biggest supporters/fans since

The NFL Films story makes U want him to succeed more

Tell em, Home Sent U

Enjoy Dolfans!

aunt milliie...very funny

Aloco,

It is simply a matter of survival of the fittest. When the final battle arrives we will have no use for the weak and inferior! Whether it be physical or pyschological.

Our mission here is not to carry the corrupt and the undeserving along with us. If you cannot stand and fight, we will lay you asunder!

When you squander your blessings to the point of self loathing degredation, you have earned your fate!

Freedoms just another word for nothing left to lose!

VALHALLA!!!!

thats dumb dyingbread

In the grand scheme of things MARSHALL's 2 stupid penalties has cost us less than:

A. Jake Long's holding penalties

B. VD's Pass interference penalties

However, he LEADS the team in receptions, and has been doubled most of the time

Shall we trade Vontae and Long as well?

Come on people...For Fucs Sake!

ALoco,

Thanks for the props @ 7:27 pm. Just starting to believe everything Marshall may bring to table as far as talent alone may also be completely undone by high level of dysfucntion. This is something you cant afford when trying to build an up and coming young team like us.

Dysfunctionality itself can set a young and coming team back a year or two. I would hate to see this happen to us.

mikeoliver has condom breath.

Marc,

Is the paid hooker youre referring to Dez Bryant's mother? If so I think we all should pass.

But btw how much crack did you give her for a little crack? Just curious.

Ellen parkin THE ( SEA OF LOVE ) STAR just WON 4.3 MILLION verdict vs her ex billionire husband ABOUT PICTURES and that bring THE TOTAL TO 84 MILLION SHE GOT FROM HER NAST DIVORCE .

I LOVE TO MARRY SOME ONE FOR 3 MO ONLY THEN DIVORCE .

i think B MARSHALL should just swing for the fences n connect with TD's Jaw n lay him outtt coldd!!!

If I was pimping Dez's mom he'd def be a DOLPHIN, as he could have been all along...

Marc,

BTW buddy, stop taking everything you see here so serious. We are all only offering our opinions. Its ok for everyone to differ. I have no problem at all with your opinion to keep Marshall.

Im sure its not like Jeff Ireland comes to this blog to get ideas about what his next personel moves should be. If so he wouldnt be GM very long anyway. LOL

All this talk about Brandon Marshall. Has anyone even taken a close look at Cleveland's starters?

In the secondary, their two starting corners and the nickle are 5'-10".

Their starting safeties are 5'-11".

They have one safety that's 6'-3" and he's a third stringer.

Considering the shorter Marlon Moore scored a TD last week, it should be interesting to see if the Taller Wallace gets activated.

I'm not taking it seriously, but, TRADE MARSHALL?

COME ON MAN?!

The guy is INCREDIBLE! Best WR we've had in AT LEAST 15 years, maybe EVER!

THESE RICH MEN THEY GO MARRY KNOCK OUT WOMEN LIKE ELLEN PARKIN THEN COMPLAIN LATER .THEY GOT TO PAY HER FOR LIVING W/AN UGLY GUY FOR 3 YEARS .

ODIN, HOW YOU MAKE A SHORT GUY TALLER IN GAME DAY ?

BRANDON .YOU'RE TEAMMATE BRIAN HARTLINE IS CLOSE TO PASSING YOU YARDS WISE..BETTER GET A MOVE ON.
