Play of the game was the tipped ball he batted down from defenders.

I think Denver's seen enough. He seems 100% healthy, he's picking up the offense, making plays again and his attitude has done a complete 180. He's a major force and we need to get him a new contract right now.

i think when we hit our bye week, we are going to hear that talks have been initiated with Marshall, Doom, Kuper and Orton.

deals might not get done right away, but we will be starting on getting these guys new deals.

No reason to pay him in the middle of the season. Contracts are complicated and they have more important things to do.

Marshall will get his deal in the offseason.

Now if they did get it done i would be happy, but I wouldn't expect it.

YOU may think there are more important things to do because it's not YOUR paycheck. But I think BM would like to get it done sooner then later. He's done what the Broncos have asked and he's a pro bowl WR playing lights out and he needs to get paid right now. I think we are going to see many of these guys getting the contracts within the next few weeks.

Its just five games. No need to shake up continuity like that right now. Focus on SD, then in the bye maybe call a few agents and feel out asking prices.

Well if the 2 sides can agree what type of parameters are needed then i would say do it. But if there are issues to iron out because of what might be in new CBA I would suggest they not do it.

Last thing we want is hopes to get up, then dashed etc. The issues of guaranteed money, voidable years, incentives, possible suspension for one off field transgression etc need to be ironed out.

It's not as easy as you think. I'm sure you would understand that if you were the one writing those checks that you so aptly pointed out aren't going to be mine.

This team has more important things on its mind. Marshalls contract is no more important then dooms, then ortons.

Funny you are worried about marshall when Orton is also a fa.

Me i dont worry about any of them. Broncos can protect 3 players in an uncapped yr. Playoff teams can't sign a player unless they lose one first. There wont be the movement people think.

It could be a year of the least amount of FA available we have seen since it started.

Hell no. For maybe the first time the kid is taking responsibility for this behaviour and is working hard to be not just a better receiver but a better man.

Let him go through that journey for a little while so that he can learn instead of dumping all the money on him now and risking him becoming a dick again.

I would bet that Bowlen would love to do just what you say but there is a question if he is capable to do it at this time. Remember lines of credit for almost everyone have dried up and there would surely be a big chunk of dough due up front.

I think what also is helping is Marshall is finally getting game checks. The $143,750 check he receives every Monday is about 4x the amount he got last year. He's 25 and human. I'd pretty damn happy about getting that check even if I was still drastically underpaid.

It's easier to be mad in the offseason when you have no income and huge legal bills.

The Price will continue to go up. Bmarsh is a special player, and I know we couldn't be 5-0 w/o him. I'm glad he's back to ballin and hopefully he continues to grow. I loved his interview w/Irvin, he is playing and acting like a professional. Keep it up Brandon!!$$

Yep! Sign him now while the price is RIGHT! Teams struggling at the WR spot and are just a WR away from getting to the next level have already seen the impact of what Bmarsh brings to the game. A team that comes to mind are the N.O. Saints, Peyton Manning's Colts, the NYG's, SD Chargers; there are plethora of teams that will be bidding for Brando-the-Beast-Marshalls services.

Point is, Brandons' stock only rises as the Broncos win more games and as Brandon plays vital roles, impact, and scores the winning TD's to win games like he has done the last two weeks. W/o Brandon the last two weeks Denver is 3-2....but b/c of Brandon we are 5-0!:wiggle:

Thats a risky proposition and invites irreparable animosity to the point Brandon maynot want to sign with the BRONCOS---ever! Is that what you want...just to prove a point and continue the senseless mind games???

Brandon and McD have compromised and at the end of the day even McD knows he needs Brandon more than Brandon needs McD. McD doesn't nor can score any game winning TD's but Brandon can!!!

Think about it.:strong:

Fontaine makes an interesting point. It's not mind games he's talking about it's the consideration do you dump the burden of all that money and it is a burden on a guy that has a freshly turned over new leaf. It well may be wise to let the new realizations take root for a while.

If Brandon doesn't want to sign with the Broncos if they make him wait till the end of the season (like 90% of pending free agents) considering the summer he's had then he's welcome to piss off.

He's played two good games compared to the crap he's given this franchise all offseason, and that proves what exactly? If he can continue to focus on football, and go through just one season without getting arrested, tripping into TVs, etc etc, then he can get paid.

The last thing I want is for his limited emotional IQ to be distracted by ongoing contract negotiations.

Eh, Marshall is back in the fold bigtime, so I hope they're talking a little bit about what it will take to get him signed for 4-5 years.

You guys don't ****ing get it. He's a RFA. Somebody will have to pay him and give us at least 1 first rounder if not 2 to get him. He'll be a Bronco next year.

From Cut: "Funny you are worried about marshall when Orton is also a fa."


Not so when you look at which one is making the plays and which one is merely attempting to make a play.

Marshall, Royal and Scheff have made Orton look pretty damn good.

Rod Smith understands what Marshall must do......play to his potential and stay out of trouble!!!

"He has earned the respect back of his teammates. Not all the way, because (Marshall) has a long way to go," Smith said. "But you do your thing, you keep on a straight line, don't go out of bounds and let your play speak for itself, and good things can happen."

Now if they did get it done i would be happy, but I wouldn't expect it.Correct.
Marshall's abilities to play football have never been in question
His contract will be structure to include a lot of behavior clauses as it pertains to the NFL Conduct Policies
Remember, he's a strike away from being suspended by the league
The Broncos must protect their investment

Has Marshall done a 180 in his attitude?
Perhaps, all of this just tells me he has the potential to change things around, but we've seen it before that just when we've thought he's got it together, he drops yet another bomb

No question he deserves to get paid. That's not ever been questioned. It's the other stuff that he has working against him...

there was never a question of his ability on the field. It is off the field issues that matter also. A suspension, regardless of when, is huge negative on a player. He is underpaid and I would tell him that if he keeps up the work ethic and positive off the field characteristics, he will be rewarded at the end of the season. You can put it in bonus money or a guarantee contract. If he really has changed forever, he will only need to wait a few months. He is winning, getting back to #1 receiver and seems to be having fun. I dont think he wants to go anywhere else if the Broncos rewarded him..... at the end of the season. I am sure he can be a good boy for 3 more months. Right?

ZONA
10-12-2009, 05:23 PM
Alot of you guys are totally missing the point here. He is underpaid right now. He was underpaid last year. So even though he's had some off the field issues, we expect him to play at a probowl level for a 3rd consecutive year before we pay him what he deserves? That's total BS. I understand the whole "protect your investment" stuff but in the end, it's a risk no matter what. I'd rather risk him getting suspended for a year then risk losing him altogether. And getting draft pick compensation for him isn't a sure thing either. You want to talk about risk, that is more risky if you ask me. How many guys come out of college who can do what BM does for this team? Nada, None, Zippo.

And to suggest it's not a good time to pay him because it seems "we or us" deem it best for him because he's changing his life around, that's a bunch of BS too. BM is his own man and it's up to him to make sure he stays focused on keeping his butt clean. It's not the Broncos' responsibility via keep him underpaid till we think he's ready to handle that kind of money. Money hasn't been the problem for BM. The things he has got into trouble for have nothing to do with somebody making a lot of money.

I hear a ton of excuses on why not to pay him now but IMO, they are all total BS. He's out there doing his job at the highest level. Yes there are other FA's doing that also but they haven't been grossly underpaid for the past 2 years like BM has been.

Pay the man !!

And the ONLY person he has to blame for that is himself.

If he hadn't been such a douchebag in college he would have been drafted a lot higher and gotten a fatter contract.
If he hadn't been such a douchebag off the field since we drafted him then he would have gotten his fat contract by now.

Life isn't fair, but in his case, it very much is.

You guys don't effing get it. He can't just sign with some other team this off-season without that team taking it in the pooper, and when you consider he's one infraction away from an 8 game suspension then you start to realize there are remote, slim, and few senarios where he's no a Bronco next year.
