I would start with sharper routes and using his superior size more often. I would like to see him fight for the ball. Maybe fundamentals isnt the right word but that is what I mean.

I think by the latter part of the season he will be generally considered a top 5 receiver.

I agree. He will certainly have the athleticism and production to match.

Dumb and making a mistake are two different animals..
Benjarvis Green-Ellis. And he has a lot more touches than DT.

Did he really? Lol. He had never fumbled before and I haven't paid attention to Cincinnatti in years.

Great size, athleticism, speed, and big play potential.
I'm very excited about him. The fumble last week was just somehting tha thappens when you shift the ball. This weeks fumble was a greta play by the CB. He hit the **** out of the ball. At that angle he would have knocked it out of any WRs hands.

I'm glad to come in here and see people have been pretty understanding of the fumble last game. DT was in a tough spot as the DB had his hands inside DT's arms just as he was trying to pull the ball in to secure it. A very tough spot and good play by the DB.

We should focus on the sick one handed grab on the sideline and then the perfect adjustment he made to the Peyton desperation ball.

Yes, Marshall is much shiftier and better at avoiding tackles. Marshall is faster than Thomas as well. He is also more refined. Thomas is bigger and sturdier. Marshall as tall as he is he takes a lot of punishment and I always worry about his health. He has held up very well though.

Well, to be fair, his TD catch was a thing of beauty.

Marshall is not faster than thomas. It is not even close either. DT is much much faster than marshall

Pardon? DT had a broken foot and has never been officially timed. The only one claiming he's sub 4.4 is his agent Who claims he ran a 4.38 before he broke his foot.

Coincidentally Marshall 's agent claims he runs 4.4 too http://blogs.sun-sentinel.com/sports....html#comments

Not the most scientific comparison, but DT just completely pulls away from people as a runner. Marshall goes around and through people. Both effective, but the eyeball test tells me DT is faster.

If you think you can actually make a visual comparison of a 2 percent difference (at most) in speed when it's not even a side by side comparison then you're doing yourself a disservice man

Brandon Marshall is still a stud, no matter what the moral high-horse haters say. Legit. Hall of Fame baby.

Doing the best I can with what we have. Otherwise it is simply a case of "Marshall is faster!"...."Nuh uh, Thomas is!"


All we have is the kind of plays they tend to make and visual comparison. Unless you want to take the "Documented" 40 times.

Did I just read lonelystar say that we can't call Demaryius dumb because of his fumbles. . . since it is childish? Quite interesting coming from the guy who calls Mike Shanahan "Tanahan" and said Elvis Dumervil would suck because has a "midget" who played for Louisville.

Yeah, I wish they had these things published but I cant find them. I can almost guarantee that DT is faster than marshall. I know imo, just through watching that DT looks faster, and I swear I have seen their .40 times before, but am unable to locate them either. So who knows.

Mind you I am not saying marshall is slow or sucks, but I am very certain DT is faster.

That really is the best people can do with this argument. It's like claiming you can tell the speed difference between Chris Harris and Eric Decker (especially if you couldnt get them on the field running at the same time)

I'm not sure wtf it matters anyway... both are currently producing at really high levels. Brandon needs to stop hitting women and Thomas needs to start hitting DBs and then everybody wins.

They're not published because it never happened...
