Default 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?

After he signs the agreement to disavow anything associated with Mike Shanahan and pledges to give Josh McDaniels credit for anything one might perceive as praise.

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.

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.

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.
