View Full Version : When will Marshall enter Sunday's game?

The Broncos HC said the following:

Receiver Brandon Marshall, who led Denver in receptions the past two years, has had a "good week of practice," according to McDaniels. "I'm hopeful all our players will contribute. Brandon certainly will. He had a good week of practice. Hopefully he'll have two more good days here. We're going to use a lot of people. It's going to be hot, the first game of the season and the first time all these guys will play four quarters worth of football. He should be out there a bunch."


I was wondering if he would hold Marshall out of a portion of the game "to teach him a lesson" or just put the past behind them all and start him.

When do you think Marshall will see the field?

Poll to follow

if he's ready, start him... we certainly need his talent!

He won't start, but he'll come in right away, between the 3rd and 5th play.

He'll probably catch the first pass play, punt the ball into the stands and get ejected.

I'm thinking we see Marshall and Royal in the 3-Wide on the first play. Just not sure who the third WR will be on first down.

McD has already made his point and marshall can back ready to play and he will play alot.

Of course he'll play, but will he "start"? If he sits the first series he gets a another gametime reminder of who the boss is...no?

If he doesn't start I wouldn't read that much into it, after all he has missed a lot of time and admits he doesn't know the play book as good as he should but having said that I do expect him to start. It would be the smart play by McD.

I'll go so far as to say that if Marshall doesn't "start" then McD is a dumbass.

They already "taught" him a lesson by suspending him for 2 games. Right now is not the time to punish him. McDaniels would punish his own team if he kept Marshall out during a regular season game.

I'll wager that he will go in the game the first time the Broncos have the ball on offense. But maybe not the first play. That will be a running play, three TE set.

Also Cincy's 3rd CB is out. Mcdaniels comes from that school of thought where you change up your game plan to suit each team. You run formations that put what you feel are there weakest players on the field.

So already teams like Pats, Broncos etc like to go 3 WR if they feel your 3rd corner not that good.

Since the 4th corner is now at 3rd, that moves some real shaking of the backfield if you go 4 WR.

Depending on how the Broncos can handle the pass rush look for Marshal to not only start, but for the Broncos to be 4 wide a lot.

We could see a Marshall/Royal/Gaffney/Stokely thing with Royal and Stokes both inside.

It all depends on if Mcdaniels feels he can run on the bengals. But with there 3rd corner out you can bet some player like Stokely licking his chops.

I'm betting he starts and McD get's him involved very early on.

Actually, when Brandon's name is annouce some fans will "Boo", BMarsh will run on the field get to the sidelines turn to the booing fans and salute with the "Middle Finger" at all those moralistic judgemental fans who only view him as "Meat-on-Hoff"! ;D

I say he sits out first series. Beginning with 2nd series, lets put the bullsh*t behind us and try to win some damn games. Actually, I guess we should always be doing that, but you get my point.

he'll start, McDaniels can't risk losing the team so early in the season.

I don't think it's that big of an issue whether he starts the first play or not. For all we know, McD might start (against all expectations) with Royal, Hillis and 2 TEs.

The question is how much he's going to play and McD has already indicated that he expects all of the WRs to see considerable action, given not only the fact that he runs a lot of 4 WR sets, but also that he expects hot weather. It could be in the low 80s by gametime.

We'll see Marshall for sure, and I expect he'll be in a lot. But I strongly doubt that he'll be the focus of the offense.

I agree with this.
Marshall will be rotated in and out quite a bit.
He didn't have much productive camp time to get in football shape and his knowledge of the playbook is probably still a work in progress so he won't be featured, but he will be rotated in when the situation fits.

I just wonder if the coach has put this behind him or if he will hold him out a play or series as added punishment. I think the suspension should be enough and he should be on the field as the matchup's and his health dictate.

and you think this is unique?


As for Marshall, I am way beyond guessing what this guy will do.

maybe because he doesnt deserve to start? Flava Clown will come in right before the 1st quarter ends. He hasnt played much in the preseason, gets suspended and didnt know the playbook. He doesnt deserve to start.
