We'd sort of be screwed, and if there's any truth to the reporting, Brandon's latest dopey antics could land him a more serious suspension.

So, if it's 4-8 games, we need a starting WR in hurry.

Ideally, it would be a bigger target, or at least a possession type guy. You'd hate to see us use an early draft pick and even if we do, it's tough to depend on a rookie at WR. (Usually)

What about Tory Holt? He'll turn 33 this year, but could easily have a good season or two left in him, particularly with Cutler zipping him the ball. The Rams are rumored to be considering offering him up, and (pure) speculation is that it could be for a mid-round pick. His numbers were off last year, but the Rams imploded, so it's hard to say if that was all him. People thought I. Bruce was done, and he had great season for SF.

Anyone interested in him?

If not, what other options do you like if we need a fill-in for Marshall?

Good thread. If Marshall indeeds gets in the upwards of an 8 gamer or so we are going to need another starter quality guy. We could trade down and get Nicks... which wouldnt be ideal I know.

Or wait and see if MAclin falls.... or just wait till 2nd or 3rd round for one.

I like the Holt idea, maybe a trade for Boldin since he isnt happy in AZ.. I wonder what they are looking for to unload him?

It has been reported that Marshal's arrest was just a misunderstanding and he was released with no charges pressed in a few hours. Why should he suspended even a game for that? And atheletes' personal and domestic issues are none of Roger Goodel's business....

While you're correct, the agreement between the NFL and Players Union says quite the opposite...

If it's 8 I could see us getting someone to fill in, but you don't think with Royal, Stokley, Gaffney and Scheffler (hopefully) we can make due without using a draft pick?

Maybe for a game or so, but I just think we'd be missing that #1 type threat that Marshall brings. Holt isn't what he used to be, but he's still got a top-flight skill-set. Or, maybe I'm missing some other options out there.

I didn't even think about Boldin. (Ludo) Oh, man.... would that be sweet.

I love Maclin, but wonder if he's a just a bigger Eddie Royal. Crabtree will be gone when we pick, I assume... and I'd hate the idea of using a #1 on a WR. We absolutely have to build a defensive core.

probably a 1st and a 3rd for Boldin.

but i think if it is a 4 game suspension which seems most likely, we just go in with what we have, and use a lot more passes out of the backfield and split out Hillis more and use Scheff as a bigger part of the game plan.

if it is a 8 game suspension, i could see us going after someone like Curry who is a possession receiver and should be able to be had cheap

I think it is fricken stupid to discuss making a trade/using a draft pick because Marshall may miss half a season.
Did you guys expect to win anything this year? I don't.
I see no point in going out and taking a WR high in the draft(of course if Crabtree falls it would be hard not to), or trade for someone because Marshall may miss some games.

We will need another able body, who else do we have on the roster in case someone gets injured?

Does it matter? It will only be at max 8 games. Again, are you expecting us to compete for anything this year? I'm not.
All I'm saying is that thinking it is a huge need is not important, and we shouldn't look at taking a WR in the 1st just because this season we may be without our #1 WR for half a season at most.

Yeah i'm not talking about wasting a draft pick or spending high dollar on a WR - but we need another body. Any body as long as it comes cheap or later in the draft.

My first thought - draft a stud RB.

Let's learn how to be a dominant running team again. Then, when we get Marshall back, we will be near unstoppable.

Me too....his act has really gotten old now...

At first I thought he was just a very unlucky, immature young man. But if it walks like a duck.

How do you end up in a fistfight with your fiancee?? At some point it has to cross your mind that not only is this wrong for your relationship but its going to cost you in your career...I'm done with him

He would become my adopt a bronco if we picked him. Not often that my alma mater puts somebody in the pros.

I'm just sick of seeing Marshall and arrested in the same sentence. I do not like the idea of spending a first day pick on a WR when there's too many holes on D. Find someone late in the draft or a cheap veteran. IMO Royal can step up and be a #1 anyway.

I don't think we'd necessarily be screwed. We still have a decent trio in Royal, Stokely, and Gaffney. None of those guys give you much size, but I wouldn't consider that the worst situation to be in. That said, losing BMarsh certainly isn't going to help anything. I don't think we need to panic and use a high draft pick on the position. Maybe bring in the best available veteran if the suspension comes down.

Marshall will not be suspended for this "incident". You can bank on it.

Irish Stout

I thought at the end of last year when Marshall said that he still had no feeling in his hand that we'd probably gear up to trade him. As much as Marshall comes off as a nice guy, he struggled to make the necessary catches last year and his off field antics have grown very stale indeed.

If Marshall's hand isn't better by mid-April and McD knows about it, I hope to all things Elway he tries to trade the man.

Until he can go a year without incident, it is probably wise to make contingency plans. He may not be suspended for this one, but is there any reason to think it will be the last time he has a fight with his girlfriend that gets out of hand, or that every one will be dismissed and disregarded? Can he be counted on to consistently be available in the future?

I feel you. I agree. But anyone thinking the marshall situation warrants a day one pick is crazy IMO.

That's the thing, and even if he comes back... we're on egg shells waiting for his next ****-up.

I think we have to do something, either way. The seriousness of the suspension will tell us just how much.

It's not so much that anyone expects to win, but you still have to go out and field a team that can win. You can't ever go out and assume your team is going through the motions for a few years. You never know how quickly something will gel (Miami/Atlanta) and you'll be in the playoffs.

Beyond that, again... it's going forward that has people worried, too. Not just the games Marshall misses.

I guess you forgot how good we were when Hillis was in the backfield...

It definitely depends on how long the suspension is, if there is one (hey, we can dream, right?).

If its 4 games or less, I'm not sure if I can justify trading a pick or a player for a stopgap solution.

I mean, even without Marshall, we've got Royal, Stokley, Gaffney, Anderson (maybe), Scheffler, Graham, Hillis, a draft pick...

That's a pretty formidable group of hands, and I'd like to think we could get by on that for a while.

Very interested in him. Great attitude, good production, and fills a major role. Even if BMarsh is here and doesn't get suspended I would love to have a player like Torry Holt. If they'd take a 5th for him I would do it in a heartbeat. Same if it took a 4th. We would have to restructure his contract, but I think he'd play well enough for us to give him a 4 year $16-20m contract.

Why wast time on this clown. He has a history of slapping around the ladies. The ladies don't press charges and he ends up skating. When he actually becomes a man and takes care of women, then we have something to talk about.

Next thing out of his mouth will be once again, how sorry he is and he has learned his lesson. This will take place just after he meets with the Commissioner and is place on an 8 game suspension and losses half his salary. At least he should have enough money left to buy himself lunch at McDonald's. I would suggest to B Marsh that he doesn't take the bag home.
