I'd like a "**** him right in the earhole starting last year" option.

I'm absolutely fed up with him, but if he changes his attitude, really changes it, then I'll support him (but I will support trading him for value even more).

I am absolutely willing to support him. He's actually a pretty likeable guy when he doesn't have his head in his ass.

Funny thing. I saw the article on yahoo about his practice tantrum, and I read the comments, it occurs to me that there is an ENORMOUS amount of A-holes, racists, and jerks in this world. Without having to look someone in the eye and give your opinion, it makes people show how horrible they really are. You'd never know these people existed just walking through your daily life. I think what I'm saying, i appreciate this board more and more. We have a handful of people whom are online brave, but for the most part, the people here seem to be able to act like decent humans.

Having said that, Marshall is a baby, but the NFL isn't in the business of raising 25 year old babies. We are in it to win it, and Marshall gives us the best chance to win. Not a whole lot of good receivers out there that aren't a bit selfish. Seems to be a prerequisite for the position. You could trade him, but you'll get about the same thing in return or a guy that won't make an impact. Short of him going raider coach on someone, or going Ray Cartuth in his private life, I think we may just need to put up with it, and pay the guy what he's worth.

There's two ways that I'd like to see this play out. Neither of which are popular with the folks around here who just want to stick it to Marshall, even though it puts them in a bad situation too.

They can ride this out, get him on the field, let him produce like he can, and then give him a big contract.

Or trade him now.

The way I see it those are the only two options where the Broncos will benefit. Sure, his trade value sucks right now, but something is better than nothing. And if they let him sit and rot for the season, he walks next year, and again, they get nothing.

I don't see a point in letting him play this year and not giving him a big contract, because if they don't he's going to walk, and again, they are stuck with nothing. They'd be allowing him to audition for other teams. I'd rather have Marshall producing long term for the Broncos than having nothing at all.

So, what I'm getting at, is that I don't want to see the Broncos stuck with nothing. So either trade him or keep him and pay him. Something is always better than nothing. Bowlen, or who ever is in charge, needs to drop the ego. Seems like they don't want to give into a player, but that doesn't mean shoot yourself in the foot in the process. If they can't stand Marshall, then trade him.

I can't see why that's unpopular Jason, They seem to be the only real options. If your gonna lose him in free agency anyway, then sign and trade, or just trade. I'd hate to lose him, but he won't really fit the offense anyway, but teams like atlanta, huston, and Philly NEED him. (Huston not so much) We could get a piece we need in return, or some much needed cash. Can't let it fester though, and just have him leave next year.

He doesn't "just walk" next year. He's a restricted free agent. Restricted. That means we get something for him if someone really wants to sign him. And that something is a 1st and 3rd round pick if we put the highest tender on him.

+1, Irish. I'd have to see some real effort from him to change his thinking and his behavior before I'm convinced. Things like finding himself a mentor (Rod Smith comes to mind, of course) who can coach him about success in life as well as success on the field. Something that helps him grow up from his current status as a 6'5" immature mental midget. At that point I'll back him and cheer how he turned his life around. And even support and cheer him as a Bronco.

Until then I've got nothing for him. I might walk across the street to piss on his leg if he was on fire, but that's about it.

Is BMarsh smart enough to pull an Ochocinco turn around? He hasn't proved he can so far. :oyvey:
