Marshall goes to IR, Dolphins claim new DB

The Richard Marshall saga has come to an end.

This morning I reported the cornerback wasn't expected to play the next two weeks. Apparently his prognosis was worse than that because this evening the Dolphins placed Marshall on the reserve injured list. I am trying to find out for certain, but I'm assuming it is season-ending IR.

[Update: Marshall won't be back this season. He is currently in Los Angeles seeing spine specialist and surgeon Dr. Robert Watkins. He is scheduled for back surgery Thursday.]

The club is replacing Marshall by claiming defensive back Brandon McDonald off waivers from Tampa Bay.

McDonald was with the Bucs the first nine weeks of the season. He saw action in eight games with two starts. He had 20 tackles and one interception in that time.

McDonald, a former fifth-round pick of the Cleveland Browns, has played 77 cames in his career.

Good. Move on.

What about Stanford Routt?

routt still sitting out there, pick the guy up!

Yep its too late in the season to be playing the waiting game for 2 or 3 more weeks... not a surprise

Armando, I broke this news at the begining of the Bye Week.

If Marshall couldn't come back after two weeks with a back injury, you know something is SERIOUSLY wrong.

Thats when I posted that he would go on IR for the year. When he couldn't return after the Bye Week I knew it was a wrap!

Too bad to, Marshall was playing pretty solid BEFORE the injury. He came back the next week, after the initial injury and tried to play through it. Thats when you could see his play wasn't up to par.

Prior to the injury though, he was playing pretty darn good. Strong in run support too, just laying the wood.

Day and Night difference between him, Carroll and Wilson.

I knew it was coming, but STILL........Big SIGH.......

marshall was mediocre

I'm assuming McDonald takes Marshall's roster spot.

We had three spots open back about the time of the bye week. Didn't we sign another corner a couple of days ago?

If this is right, I believe we still have 1 or 2 roster sspots open(I think we signed a LB or DL(but that guy might have went to the practice squad).

Anyways, I think we have the ROOM for at least one more signing. How is this Stanford Routt guy?

How is Brandon McDonald for the matter. Anyone have any idea?

routt is the better corner, neither is anything special but still an upgrade

Uhh..... no one in the FO saw this coming BEFORE the trade deadline! For any good will Irland had built, this brings more questions?? And with the playoffs in the balance?

He has a blood clot in his back so very serious. He is a good player who because of his injury could not prove himself this year

playoffs ended in indy but still get looks for next year

Oh well. Maybe next season.

We need to win the next two (Sunday and Thursday) and then we can think about playoff possibilities

If by that, you mean he was better than Carroll and Wilson, I agree.

The main thing though, is this injury hurt us pretty good. It's a passing league and we have been getting roasted on occasion. Carroll and Wilson both have been improving, but neither were/are even CLOSE to Marshall.

Does anyone know if either of these two corners we brought in are expected to supplant either Carrol or Wilson?

I mean no disrespect, but it shouldn't be too hard to improve upon Carroll and Wilson. Even finding guys off the street right now.

Realistically speaking, neither of these two were even guaranteed roster spots during the camp. And they SURELY weren't expected to be starters or heavy contributors.

If you remember, the original plan was for Davis and Smith to start, with Marshall upgrading the nickle spot.

So is it a Long Shot to expect one these guys to supplant what should have been our 4th and 5th cornerbacks?

Heres to hoping for the best!

id say lt, wr, cb 3 biggest needs for draft and free agency no doubt

yes very mediocre but i agree he was def better than practice squad types in wilson and carrol

Playoffs ended in Indy? Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the Fins just a game out of a playoff spot in a very mediocre AFC right now?

Where was it that I read that Irelands trade of Davis and the lack of depth would come into play during the season,I think it was JMMeister that posted it.


THANK GOD..........


it isn't 1953 any.....they PLAY a 16 game schedule now....

behind pitt and 2 games behind colts with tie breaker, good luck

From the last entry. There is a Time to run the ball. There is a Time to pass the ball. There is also a Time to talk crap like we are doing here now.

davis was great trade, got a 2nd rd pick for that lazy no playing bum

Time to draft a CB in the first round next year. Cutting Marshall will save 5 million next year,

How can People get so enthused over a Presidential candidate? Knowing the RealPolitiks you should know that very, very seldom does a US President makes a difference in the designs of this Country. Last one to do it was Ronald Reagan after he was shot, he really did a # on the World Order(Illuminati). I don't think Obama is up to that task.

No Aloco, thank Allah, God had nothing to do with it.
And um....be careful what you wish for.

They have Cows in Canada?

Sadly we`ve got a few pigs too.




Aloco, yeah... I think you just made my point. Any way, God Bless America.

You have Pigs there too? Amazing.

Martin and Long should trade sides.


Sure, ALoco. No harm on anybody. I don't know Obama from Adam. The only RealEducated People in Miami, FL are Nosotros. Who is Nosotros? Those born in Cuba between 1940-1952 and that have the solid European Education in us combined with learning the latest advances of this Country for the last 50 years. You never met Us? There's plenty of Us. WE rule Miami and the Illuminati, of course They are only disadvantaged People as compared to Us.

Get ready for more broken promises and another recession within 6 months. Obama doesn't want to use our natural resources because of going green saving our planet our ocean. He doesn't know who to create jobs but spend money big government more deeper in depth! You see you Obama supporters voters. You see. HAHAHAHA! He hasn't done c r a p for this country but high unemployment Obama care and trillion dollars in debt! Alright that's what America has turn to, award people with poor job performance! Like the president! No morrows. That's what Obama has done in 4 years. This country is Divided not united. Obama wants same sex marriage to be recognize as the same as a men and a women, abortion letting woman pick the sex of her baby, if she expecting a boy and she wants a girl she can abort! That's murder!
Take from the rich give to the poor, welfare food stamps. SS to those who don't really need it! That's your president! Good luck Obama voters. Good luck! Happy job hunting!

Aloco, I know this is Dolphin's blog and I won't belabor my point, but maybe it's time we stopped thinking in terms of our race, skin color etc and called ourselves Americans. By the way, I'm white and married to a beautiful educated Latina woman who voted for Mitt Romney.

Our Petals are brighter than a Nova. Our Selfs longer than the last Exponential #.


Are you out there right now?



routt is the better corner, neither is anything special but still an upgrade

Posted by: bill connors | November 07, 2012 at 06:39 PM

Thank you Bill.

By upgrade, do you mean over Carroll? Wilson? Marshall?

Do you know enough about him to venture and opinion?

Not trying to argue, just curious ;)

Boo hoo, Romney lost. So many sore losers in life. Get over it.

Of course the Illuminati have to bend their heads before Us. You go ask Them.

Ray, you're probably like me, part of the 53% paying our taxes so the other 47% can collect they're goodies... That's fine, but it's totally unsustainable and eventually there will be a huge backlash. In the mean time, we're just going to be another 2nd tier socialist country, no longer leading the way. Less invotation, growth and total stagnation.

Don't bother Us(Too much and only when you need to).

Never heard of this CB they brought in. A refill, a Generic?

I don't really care that much about the playoffs this year to be honest. I hope we make it and it would be nice. But in all seriousness and even though they say, "on any given Sunday", I don't think we match up very favorably with most of the playoff teams. The Wildcard Teams? Yeah, undoubtedly, but the Division winners, not so much. Not this year anyway.

The big thing for me is the establishment of young players and the development of Rookies from the last two drafts. It's almost been off the charts. Very favorable situations already shaking out.

When you consider every sane observer expected a throw away season of painful first year rebuildings. Especially when Garrard came clean about his injury(ies). The winless pre season. The uncertainty about Philbin and how Hard knocks made him look ridiculously obssessive?

Nope! The playoffs aren't my main concern. Getting the Kiddy Kats experience and developing our QB of the future. For me, thats what this season is all about.

That and Ireland fixing up the cap numbers for our Free agents and then stockpiling picks!

Watching this team rise from the ashes! Watching them move away from the Parcell's debacle is what it's all about. The "Cherry On Top' is the fact that nobody has blown us out. We've played tough against everybody the roster presented!

Here it is the first year of a rebuilding project and we're already better than almost any teams we've fielded for the past decade! Thats what I'm talking about!

I for one am psyched the soul brother pulled it out. I mean I am 25 yoa, perfectly healthy, dumb as a stone, even lazier than one, yet I get to draw a free check, get a free phone, get food stamps and drink and drug till my eyes fall out. What a country!

Ron in Dallas
You hit the nail on the head! It's going to be another 4 years of the same crap, but with a higher deficit...America is not about anymore in God we trust, it's about in Obama and his failed policies we trust, I mean they trust!

yes how many of those FA's worked out that Fireland brought in?? this guy is the worst general manager in the league!! Ross get rid of him!!


That's what I do all day. Lov'in it!!!!

Yes, fire Ireland and let him collect a free check from Oblama!

I'm checking out now. Off to an Oblama victory party. I'm gonna stuff my puss with fried chicken, chitlins and watermelon till I throw up. Then I'm gonna wash the taste away with some Mad Dog 20/20. Yipee!!!!

Do I love Fried Chicken or what?

I don't czre HOW MANY screen names you make up.....

Theres ONLY ONE poster on this site that sames the same thing OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER...

POST after POST after POST after POST after POSTS.....

That is....

Until he FLIP-FLOPS.....and then post incessantly about that.....

any CLUE as to who mr, 47% is now....LOL......


you haven't had fried chicken since 1987....you know they don't allow that kind of stuff on a low-sodium diet...plus your diabetic....

you LOVE waking up every morning....cause every night is like a new adventure for you.....

but later in the day...you ask why your still here.....

soon Oscar...soon.....

think happy thoughts....and go to the light.....

Ronald Reagan after he was shot, he really did a # on the World Order(Illuminati). I don't think Obama is up to that task.

It was no coincidence that George Bush was "Waiting In The Wings" at the time Reagan was Shot!

Much like Lydon Johnson was "Waiting In The Wings" when Kennedy was shot.

The Big Money Oil insiders where bound and determined to get "Their Men" in the White House.

The Bush, Prescott, Vanderbilt, and Rockerfellers(of which Nelson Rockerfeller was "Waiting In The Wings" in case Nixon got out of control. He was his Vice President), were INSTRUMENTAL in consolidating American Big Money Interests into the Illuminati.

Kennedy got out of line(taking on US STEEL and trying to do away with the "Oil Depletion Allowance")and we saw what happened. Lydon Johnson(from Texas/Speaker of the House and Senate Majority Leader prior to becoming Vice President)was Big Oil's hand picked predecessor, in case Kennedy couldn't be controlled.

Nixon was the "Inside Guy" during Eisenhowers terms in the 50's. The Illuminati(I hate this term. It's been updated however and a conglomerate does exist).

They lost control for a minute when Kennedy beat Nixon in 1960. They out thought themselves. When they went along with Kennedy running against Nixon, they NEVER imagined A Roman Catholic would be elected President.

When that happened, "The Powers That Be" insisted LBJ be put on the ticket. As much as the Kennedy's hated Johnson, the illuminati led "constiuents", forced their hand for "political reasons" and aquiesed. When they realized JFK would be re-elected and Robert and Teddy presented and ongoing threat. They felt they had to act.

When Nixon was elected, they got Nelson Rockefeller on the ticket "Just In Case". When Nixon turned on them and through Rockerfeller under the bus over departing Vietnam, The Illuminati/CIA concocted the Water Gate affair.

They wanted to just have Nixon shot too, But the JFK/RFK and King murder investigations had just been re-opened. And there was just too much heat and pressure on them. The Kennedy murders came very close to being unraveled and were already tracking back to the CIA and Washington DC.

After the Wategate fiasco, Ford became the only President to have never been elected to anything. But he was an OK stop gap. He worked on the Warren Commission(he worked on the cover-ups of the Kennedy murders.

The problem is, by this time Americans had, had ENOUGH. The bumbling Illuminati idiots lost control again when Peanut Farmer Jimmy Carter was elected-ROTFLMAO!

But thats OK, just prior to the next elections, the CIA/Illuminati helped sabotage the Iranian Hostage rescue attempts. The committed Treason and went behind a sitting presidents back and made a deal with the Iranians on behalf of Ronald Reagan. The failed rescue attempt killed Carter in that Reagans popularity and approval rates quadrupled!

Then by getting George Bush on the ticket and "Waiting In The Wings", they finally regained enough control to let things settle down.

So in conclusion, it was NO COINCIDENCE that Georgie Boy was Vice President at the time Reagan was shot.

Sidenote: The bumbling Idiots(thats much better than The Illuminati)had to show their hand again, risking exposure when they had to "Call It In" and steal an election for another one of their own!

**Sorry Guys, I don't know where that came from**

PSS: Oscar, ask me why Fidel Castro was allowed to stay in power to this very day! Please, just ask me.

Let's hope it's not "toast" McDonald as he was known as in Cleveland. I remember a Monday Night against Denver where he was totally lost and looked like a fool. Ask Ed Royal!!

I sure MR.Genius Ireland is wishing V.Davis is still wearing Dolphins gear.. Ireland is not as smart as he thinks he is .
