Brandon Marshall Suspended

It is official, Brandon "The Beast" Marshall has been suspended for his conduct at the Broncos Wednesday practice. Marshall was caught on film being a goose. Punting away balls, knocking away passes and walking when others where running. After this video came to light Marshall tried to defend himself on ESPN but Friday morning McDaniels announced that he had been suspended. Marshall's suspension lasts until September 5, and the head coach said the team looks "forward to having him back here on September 6 as we begin our preparations toward Cincinnati."

McDaniels said a warning was given to Marshall before practice on the Wednesday, letting him know that his previous behavior was not acceptable.

"His actions didn't really change after that warning," McDaniels said. "So that leads us to today, where we went ahead and followed up the warning with a suspension." The suspension came as no surprise to anyone as he had not been putting in the work that the other 79 players had been. He also had been warned by other players that his attitude was unacceptable, Daniel Graham being one of them.

Now he will miss the next few preseason games and will be fined for missing those. So it is a bit weird for a guy that didn't want to get fined for not showing up to camp now getting fined for being a upset child.

Marshall told ESPN on the Thursday night after the video was released he wasn't trying to force a trade through insubordination but that frustration got the best of him.

The question is where do the Broncos go to from here? In his two weeks off do you think Marshall will learn the playbook? And will he be ready to go when the season rolls around? At this point some people may be jumping ship or being to lose faith in Marshall and would rather see him go. Marshall clearly has not grown up and hasn't shown anyone why he deserves that fat contract he wants. He would be better served to work hard and put in a good season then not.

Here is how I see this playing out. Since he has been suspended I highly doubt he will be traded before the season starts. So saying that he will be a Bronco this year whether he likes it or not. He will probably not be ready to go as the season rolls around so he may miss a few reps. But he is a good player and will put together a good season, where the Broncos will either say good bye or try to resign him. If not he will probably get the franchise tag.

What I don't understand is why Marshall doesn't realize that he won't get his pay day at the start of the season with his history. He will get his pay day at the end of the season in the form of three things. Free Agency, Resigning with the Broncos or the Franchise tag. And if he works hard and has a big season that just makes the deal that much better. So why doesn't Marshall see this?

Or is there something Marshall knows that he is not letting anyone know about? Does he know that his hip is not 100% or he has lost a step because of it? Or is there some off field issue he is worried about? This could explain why he is working so hard to get a deal now, since he knows that a full NFL season would expose his problems?

So I will open it to the fans what do you think and where is this going, is Marshall in for a surprise?

    ReplyDelete
  73. I need Forte and you have a man crush on Ronnie Brown so that is why it is very hard for us to work something out.

    ReplyDelete
  91. bad news, Gaffney broke his thumb, could be out for several weeks.

    http://blogs.denverpost.com/broncos/2009/08/30/gaffney-has-broken-thumb/

    ReplyDelete
  92. who starts out wide now that Gaffney is hurt, Stokley will most likely stay in the slot. Mckinley maybe or Lolyd.

    ReplyDelete
  93. kickoff in 17 minutes, probably wont blog anymore, GO BRONCOS!!!!!!!!!11

    ReplyDelete
  94. i'm back. I will blog during the beginning of the game. but will leave soon

    ReplyDelete
  95. disappointing. If Doom got the safety I would be alot happier

    ReplyDelete
  96. he was held in the end zone and it didn't get called. that is an automatic safety isnt it?

    ReplyDelete
  97. Wow, the thought of Tom starting the first game makes me sick to my stomach. On the plus side, he played very well today.

    How about B. Marshall for D. Anderson? or Thigpen?

    ReplyDelete
  98. or we could completely suck and pick a great QB next year. :)

    ReplyDelete
  99. Hmmmmm. No one wants to chime in, huh?

    ReplyDelete
  100. sam bradford,
    trade marshall mid-season if we don't start out at least 3-1, but should be 4-0, get another 1 rd pick, trade up to get bradford. Mckinley looked pretty good, very fast!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Orton didn't look too bad tonight, throw in marshall if he shapes up, with moreno. Could be a whole different look.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Sorry guys I wasn't around, been busy at work, got moved to another section today. Did get to see stats and scores through the day though. Thought we did well and Dawkins is a best. But got to improved. I thought we played alot better than last week.
