Jeez Collin just totally $hit on us for the Marshall ordeal.

Talking about how stupid we are to get rid of a SUPERSTAR PLAYER because he is full of issues ...He said , hey it's the NFL everyone is full of issues.

He actually said Marshall is UNRECOVERABLE and maybe the best in the league and literally just spent 15 ripping us a new one.


He also said no one IN THIS DRAFT at ANY position is as talented as Brandon.

I agree... If we do this again and trade someone worth something that is almost impossible to get value for or that has the potential to be something for a pile of magic beans again I'm going to $hit.


Please don't tell me we are going to be the laughing stock of another whole off-season ...

I heard it too on my lunch break. I totally agree that Marshall is first round talent. I think he could be an unstoppable WR for the Broncos. I just don;t know how stable he is or how much he TRULY wants to play in Denver.

Honestly, I will begin to worry when it actually happens (BM gets traded). Until then, let's just wait and see.

I won't argue with him either.
We're taking Marshall for granted.
We don't know what we have until we lose it.

Marshall is an elite NFL WR and I don't care what his other issues are.
When it comes down to putting an uniform on, the guy delivers. Period.
I've been on Marshall's case before for his stupid acts and antics. He may have realized now, he's got not much luck left.
Of course he can go out tomorrow and do something stupid, but he's held up nicely so far.

Bottom line is, you don't get rid of that kind of talent. Period. And that's what Colin Cowherd point was...

So it's very possible BM isn't going anywhere, but along with the other tendered players, will skip offseason activities and may hold out a couple of days into TC.

I think the Broncos will make an honest effort to keep Marshall, but teams that want a player badly enough insert that 'poison pill' in a contract to make it difficult to match. I agree with Cowherd that Marshall is an elite talent, but I disagree with the context that 'everyone has issues'. Marshall faces up to a half-year suspension the next time he screws up, and he will screw up. It's his nature. If a team wants to offer a mega-deal considering all the potential pitfalls, I truly believe the Broncos could spend that kind of financial resource elsewhere. Defense anybody?

Marshall is a super pimp, but he really only excells at RAC and sheilding the ball from defenders. He is slow off the line, and does not play to his full potential. He could seriously be a MONSTER out there that does it all. Right now he is getting close but not quite...

It would however, be pretty stupid to just let him go for a 1st.

How many 1st round WR's came into the NFL that were suppose to be the next big thing, and fell right on their faces?

BMarsh is a known producer on the field. He gets the job done.

Denver is doing him and themselves a favor by putting a 1st round tender on him. First, it allows Brandon to truly see what other clubs think he is worth(draft pick wise and more importantly in dollars and cents). The Broncos don't have to bother with his agent or Brandon until a club steps up and offers him a contract. Then Denver can just match that offer or get the additional pick.

The whole poison pill thing is overstated. Organizations talk, and I am pretty sure they have set an unwritten rule in regards to these "poison pills". The owners compete against each other, but when it comes down to it they are business partners.

It would be bizarre to trade a player like Marshall at the top of his game. And it really would take the offense back yet another step no matter how they will spin it. Look at the talent New Orleans offense fielded to win a Super Bowl the Broncos are a joke when compared to that.

So it's very possible BM isn't going anywhere, but along with the other tendered players, will skip offseason activities and may hold out a couple of days into TC.

From what we saw of his act this last TC, it might be actually better for his image to hold out a few days! BM will soon find out if the FO tells him that they will be trying to trade him for equal value. Just letting him go for a first round pick and no one does it will tell him and his agent how he is felt around the league. If every team knew of what BM is worth on the field and he was in the draft this year, would he go Top 5? To me, he would be worth #1 knowing his talent isnt a bust and is top 5 receiver in the league. However, his personality would have him slip just like so many players in drafts after and before him. With that said, he wont get any better opps and $ except in Denver. He will be staying. If so, get him a workable contract and get two happy sides before TC starts.

Listened to him this past season and I strongly remember him being a huge advocate of locker room chemistry, many times citing the Patriots, Colts, and Steelers and how their good locker room translated into prolonged success on the field.

So these recent comments seem to contradict that philosophy.

so, let me get this right. your saying that there really is no need to have a draft because there will never be anyone that plays college football that will be better than the superstars right now?

of course they dont bring as much as BM does currently....thats because they ARENT playing in the NFL currently. with ur statement there will never be another player (who comes from college) as good as BM.

sorry to tell you, but the current superstars in the NFL came from somewhere, and just like BM they will take a year or two to become the monster he is. you might not want to wait for them to develope, but needless to say there WILL be better players than BM that come from this years draft......and every draft after that. Do we know who they are???? nope, but u said that being someone in college means litterally nothing when it comes to the NFL. i disagree.....not all will be superstars, but some will be!

Your whole premise is ridiculous. Every player in the league "brings more to the table" CURRENTLY than any college prospect because none of them have actually played in the NFL. Orton brings more to the table than Bradford CURRENTLY, but that doesn't mean that Bradford couldn't exceed Orton's impact once he gets playing time.

If any of the top QB, OL or DL (hell maybe even safety and LB) prospects meet their expectations in the pros, they will almost automatically have a bigger impact on their team than any WR.

Suh, McCoy, Bradford, Berry could all easily bring more to the table than Marshall (and most likely will if they don't have injury issues). Marshall is a great player, and he's exciting to watch, but WR is probably the most easily replaceable position on a team besides RB as far as production is concerned. He provides virtually no leadership to his teammates and does very little to make anyone, but the QB look better.

Marshall plays a luxury position. You can win a superbowl without a top 3 WR, but it would be nice to have that guy on your team IF you have all of the more important positions filled with good players first.

With a potential lock out next season, teams are going to be very cautious about giving out large contracts with guarantees. Makes sense.

BM is only one incident away from a likely 8 game suspension which is another issue. It will be interesting to see if any team steps up with a fat contract for BM.
If they do, I'm sure Denver will be happy with a 1st round draft pick......or player of worth.

First round talent? So many players taken in the first round end up busts... Brandon's talent shouldn't be compared relative to draft placement, but to other super-talented players already in the league... such as Fitz and Moss. First round talent? What does that even mean?

Colin Cowpie was rattling on about Cutler one day, and his struggles in Chicago. Then he said that Cutler 'was great in Denver'. I had to email him to question what constitutes 'great' to him.

17-20? I question his standards.

I'm all for keeping Brandon Marshall, if possible.

How many WRs out of this draft will have 3 consecutive 100+ catch seasons before the age of 26?

Probably none.

Dude can be a pain in the ass, but it's worth putting up with the occasional tantrum for his overall production.

I am a draftnik to the extreme....but I also don't like trading a proven elite level commodity in exchange for a draft pick that in all likelihood will not produce a player equal to B-Marsh and his production.

If Brandon Marshall plays 10 years with the Broncos, he will own every single franchise record at the WR position.

Just listening to Klis on the radio. He commented that at the combine, there was zero interest expressed in BM.

He again pointed out that GMs are very wary of giving BM a big contract.

So it's very possible BM isn't going anywhere, but along with the other tendered players, will skip offseason activities and may hold out a couple of days into TC.


Thats because he wasnt tendered yet.

I'd love to keep Brandon, but fear for his safety and believe the right thing would be to let him go to another city.

That's an interesting point that never crossed my mind. With the current murder trial going on and Marshal's testimony getting him out of town may save his life.

It's going to be interesting to see which team(s) step up and offer Brandon a big enough contract for him to accept and the Broncos to 'pass'.

Here is what ESPN insider says:

Jets still could make move for Marshall

There's been a lot of speculation over the past few months as to where Brandon Marshall will wind up in 2010, with some of the candidates found at right. As far as a trade price tag, the ceiling for this will be a first round draft pick, as NFL Insider Adam Schefter tweeted that this is the level at which he was tendered by the Broncos. Marshall could go for even less, depending on a trade that another team works out with Denver.

One destination that will be mentioned for any receiver this offseason is Baltimore. The team is still bankrupt at the position even with Donte' Stallworth in town, and in order for Joe Flacco to properly develop, he needs to have a stronger cast of pass-catchers. But will Marshall's character give the team second thoughts? Not according to what owner Steve Bisciotti told Aaron Wilson of National Football Post.

Given the lowered price tag, the Jets have re-emerged as a possibility in the buzz we've heard on Thursday. There's still a need for a legit No. 1 WR, and Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum is not opposed to pulling off big deals.

AFC West blogger Bill Williamson provides a breakdown of several possible trade partners, and includes the Bucs, who do need to overhaul Josh Freeman's receiving corps. Still, it appears as though Seattle might be the most logical destination:


"This may be the front runner to land the receiver. The Seahawks have players to trade and Marshall would like to reunite with former Denver assistant coach Jeremy Bates, who is now Seattle's offensive coordinator." - Bill Willimason


Off to the side it has:

Destinations for Brandon

- The first speculation was that Marshall would be headed to the Seahawks or the Redskins, via two of our NFL Nation bloggers.

- Cincinnati has the need for a second WR to go along with Chad Ochocinco, but we're not sure the Bengals would want another head case, T.O. rumors notwithstanding.

- The Cowboys need a legitimate No. 1 WR and Jerry Jones would have no problem forking out cash for a new deal to Marshall.

- Dave Krieger of the Denver Post speculated on some new spots: the Ravens, Dolphins and Cardinals.

Did we already forget about how this flavor clown douche skipped the last game of the season?

Jesus... anything we get in return for this lunatic is fine by me. Addition by subtraction in this case.

Marshall is a really good receiver but he isn't a superstar. he really is just a really good possession receiver. lacks big time speed, has a tendency to occasionally lose focus in games

What was the last Super Bowl winning team to have a headache/Brandon Marshall esque (in terms of problems, etc) player on their roster?

The Giants. Burress had issues in Pittsburgh but he capped it off by shooting himself in the leg.

17-20? I question his standards.

He had basically this same kind of rant when we first traded Cutler too, about how McDaniels was destroying the franchise.

Turns out our QB we got in return outplayed Cutler and we picked up two firsts and a 3rd for only throwing in a 5th.

Cowherd is almost never right. He just talks really loud into a microphone so enough people buy into it and forget how wrong he was in his takes last week, the week before, the month before that, etc..

In short, He's a perfect employee for ESPN.

Is Dan Williams, Iupati or McClain worth Brandon Marshall? Evidently our front office thinks so. That's why they only placed a 1st round tender on him and not a 1st and a 3rd.

Oh, so you talked to our staff and that's who they're interested in? That's good to know.

I think the Broncos will make an honest effort to keep Marshall, but teams that want a player badly enough insert that 'poison pill' in a contract to make it difficult to match. I agree with Cowherd that Marshall is an elite talent, but I disagree with the context that 'everyone has issues'. Marshall faces up to a half-year suspension the next time he screws up, and he will screw up. It's his nature. If a team wants to offer a mega-deal considering all the potential pitfalls, I truly believe the Broncos could spend that kind of financial resource elsewhere. Defense anybody?

If we are serious about making any kind of run in the next couple of years, we have to keep him. He is one of the most talented players in the NFL.

But if we are rebuilding, let him go. McDaniels doesn't think we're rebuilding, even though we have no good prospect at QB long term and have to restore the interior of the offensive line, as well as the entire defensive line.

If we offer any long term deal, it will have to have some form of protection for us in case he screws up again.

Regardless of Brandon's talent it seems like GM's out there dont value him nearly as high as teams fans do.

I dont see anyone coming up with a 1st rd pick and $40m for this guy. Not until he proves he can perform as well off the field as he can on it and be more team orientated than in this just for personal gain.

I see reports already flooding the media waves that teams who were supposedly interested in him are now shying away.

I'll call it now and say whether he plays or not, sulks or gurns he'll be on the Broncos roster this season.
