Horse Tracks 8/28/09 - Brandon Marshall continues to soil his image

New, comments


As I mentioned a couple days back in the comments, I could see this heading toward a suspension for conduct detrimental to the team. There's a limit to where the NFLPA can defends its players' actions, and BMarsh (IMO) is getting awfully close to that point...

KMGH - Brandon Marshall Makes A Mockery Of Practice - Video
What's there to say?

DB - Honored For Their Offseasons - Gray Caldwell
Josh Barrett, Tim Crowder, Jabar Gaffney, Daniel Graham, Ben Hamilton, Peyton Hillis, Kenny Peterson, Chris Simms, Brandon Stokley and Jack Williams were all recognized by their teammates as the hardest offseason workers. Their rewards include prime parking spots at the team facility and their choice of seats on the team charter flights.

NFP - Is Marshall killing the Broncos season? - Matt Bowen
Bowen considers how BMarsh has handled his contract situation. He shares some interesting quotes from an NFL exec, who wondered, "Look how he has behaved before the money. What do you think he will be like when he gets the money?" Good question...
