    Last season the Brandon Marshall played in 16 games for the Miami Dolphins. He had 81 receptions for 1,214 yards, with a 15 yard average. He also caught 6 touchdowns for the Dolphins. Marshall had a great year, one of the best years from a wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins in many years. He did so well that he made the Pro Bowl AND, he was selected the MVP for that Pro Bowl last season.

    Why did the Dolphins let him go, for two THIRD round picks nonetheless?

    Brandon Marshall was traded to the Bears where he has only played in SIX games and he already has almost as many touchdowns as he did last season and he is on pace to break all his Pro Bowl stats from last season. Marshall has 41 receptions, 577 Yards, 14.1 yard average, with 4 touchdowns, and this is all after just six games played.

    I wonder what Tannehill's stats would look like if the Dolphins had a true #1 receiver.

    About the same except Hartline would never see the ball.

    When Cutler gets injured , Marshall will be irrelevant.

    Marshall is also playing with the only qb he actually respects. You think he'd put out that kinda effort for a rookie? No ****ing way

    I wonder if we can go a week without a Brandon Marshall thread in the main forum every time he has a pretty good game. :ponder:

    Yeah. Me and my friends up in Massachusetts have talked about this quite a bit, they constantly crack jokes at the fact we gave up Brandon Marshall for only 2 3rd round picks. Even with some of his off the field issues we should have gotten at least a 2nd and 3rd in my opinion. Anyhow, whats done is done, we can build through the draft and find a WR that fits the system and who can obey the law.

    And with the Bears' shaky OLine, I wouldn't be surprised if Cutler does get hurt, unfortunately for them.

    I think some people believe that if we keep talking about it somehow Brandon Marshall will come back to the Miami Dolphins or else I really don't know why they keep bringing it up.

    I could tell you why, but it would result in my banning. Therefore, I will not.

    Marshall is one of the only alpha WR's in the NFL and it would be nice to still have him on this team but the fact is he was a distraction. Philbin is a high character guy and wants to build a team with high character players who aren't going to be in the news every few months for getting in trouble with the law. Marshall threw both henne and moore under the bus several times and said he needed a real QB. He was tweeting all the time how he wanted to reunite with cutler. He started getting in verbal altercations with henne on the sideline and almost got into a bad fist fight. Players in the locker room were getting sick of his crap and he was rubbing people the wrong way. One more off the field issue and he will probably face a big suspension and trust me it will happen again. We wil get a #1 in the off season dont worry, we have options.

    Because Brandon Marshall is a head case in love with Jay Cutler. Hell they are perfect for each other....short tempered cry babies.

    Just wait until the Bears collapse in late Nov./Dec.

    He always gave effort. He would be doing even better than last year if he was still here also. We traded him cause we thought he was gonna get in touble for that issue he had. Nothing ever happened with that and we got horrible compensation cause of it.

    Some things are more important than statistics.

    Better effort than inexplicably running out of bounds?

    I don't think I've EVER seen a player do that. Ever in that situation.

    Philbin is building a base here. A team. I have high confidence in Philbin and what he's
    doing.

    Nice Posts.

    I created a thread a week ago and I can't find it anywhere. I am new here and I haven't figured out how to find my own threads and posts. I was asking this forum who they wanted to draft in 2013 since there are going to be a ton of good wide receivers. Since the Dolphins don't really have a true #1 receiver, which WR's would you like to see the Dolphins draft next offseason? Is there anyone you would want them go make a strong push for in free agency, like Wallace? Woods, Hopkins and Bailey would all make nice additions.

    The quickest way to find your previous posts is to click on YOUR NAME above your avatar, and then up will pop an area that says, View Forum Posts. There is a Forum on FH that is devoted to the annual NFL draft, so you can check out who many of us are focusing on. As far as Wide Receivers.....I would say the main focus has been on -

    1. Keenan Allen, Cal
    2. Robert Woods, USC
    3. Tavon Austin, West Virginia
    4. Justin Hunter, Tenn
    5. Terrance Williams, Baylor
    6. Da'Rick Rogers, Tenn Tech

    I'd rather draft for our WR needs, but there should be some nice FA's next year. I don't want to trade away any of our picks for 2013, however, as we have lots of needs, unless someone makes us a deal we can't refuse.

    While Marshall is a true number one receiver, I don't think we've missed him on or off the field. It is clear the guy wanted out, and he was rightly shown the door. He might have good stats so far this season, but we've got Hartline who has stepped up, and the rest are contributing to some degree. Plus, before the trade deadline you never know if they bring in someone else, but that is probably unlikely. Overall though, I don't think we are missing Marshall.

    Thanks for the post and information.

    At the beginning of the season I thought the Dolphins would have a great shot at drafting Keenan Allen, as did most people. However, coach Philbin and company have gotten the best out of the players they have to work with and I think they will be drafting too high to be able to get him. This looks to be a strong WR draft class and the Dolphins appear to be sitting in a very good position with so many draft picks. I have no idea what they plan to do with all of them but I would be surprised if they didn't draft two WR's early in the draft.

    Doesn't matter they both knew full well the uniform code in the NFL and decided to violate it anyway.

    Ain't it the truth. Odd how he didn't mention all the dropped passes and penalties. Don't they count too? LMBO!

    as long as we turn those two 3rd rounders into something who gives a rip at this point.

    marshall was a beast. he's obvioulsy better than any WR we have had in a long long time. he's gone now.

    lets talk about big tits instead.
