Default Marshall news from Bowlen

http://blogs.nfl.com/2009/10/13/bron...all-mcdaniels/

Steve Wyche
Broncos’ Bowlen heaps praise on Marshall, McDaniels

Posted: October 13th, 2009 | Steve Wyche | Tags: Brandon Marshall, Denver Broncos, Jay Cutler, Josh McDaniels, Kyle Orton, NFL Fall League Meeting

BOSTON — Broncos owner Pat Bowlen said Josh McDaniels is maturing into the head coach he expected him to be and that WR Brandon Marshall is playing himself into a “significant raise.”

“Brandon understands that he’s got a year left on his present deal, but if he keeps playing the way he is, he’s going to get a very significant raise — a much better contract,” Bowlen said Tuesday at the NFL Fall League Meeting. “That’s the way it goes, and Brandon has accepted that.”

Marshall, who asked to be traded and later was suspended because of insubordinate behavior at a preseason practice, has played well the past two weeks for the 5-0 Broncos. At least publicly, Marshall has shown a more amicable attitude toward McDaniels after a contentious offseason.

As for McDaniels and his team’s hot start, Bowlen said, “Things couldn’t be any better.”

Bowlen went on: “We took some early criticism hiring a young coach — he was 32 years old at the time — and were questioned about what he was going to be able to do. He’s been terrific. It’s been extremely important as we got into the process of him being a head coach, that the way he’s handled particular situations was well beyond his years. He’s proven he is ready.”

Bowlen singled out the way McDaniels singularly absorbed the criticism for trading Pro Bowl QB Jay Cutler to the Bears in exchange for Kyle Orton and draft picks, although it was an organizational decision.

Some people thought he lost it, some questioned his ability to own the team financially. Others joked about his drinking. But so far his decision has clearly been a great one. Good on him!

Baby steps with Marshall baby steps. He's doing great after the time-out, but needs to continue the good play on and off the field.

I just hope they don't lose Marshall with this wait till next year crap. Just watch, somebody is going to offer a higher contract then us and we will be forced to either give him up for some picks or tag him.

F U Bowlen, pay him now.

Since when has being drunk been a bad thing?

*slurps Coors Light*

Bowlen is okay in my book.

We can franchise him or transition him. Plus no playoff teams next yr can sign players unless they first lose players. There won't be the movement you think there is going to be.

Broncos in a great spot to keep all the FA they want.

If we franchise him how much would teams have to give us to sign him? Is it first and 3rd, or 2 firsts?

So where in Bowlen's statement does it say Brandon will agree to Bowlen's counter offer if other teams are offering more for his services!!! Bowlen is dreaming if he believes Brandon will sign an owner-HC-team friendly contract. Bowlen is only behaving coyly.....he knows Brandon will ask to be paid as the top 5 WR and Brandon won't come cheap.

“That’s the way it goes, and Brandon has accepted that.


I wished brandon would have figured that out along time ago.

And on the field he has more than earned them. He deserves more than baby steps. The team can protect itself against stupidity that may occur off the field (but somehow I think he is learning to curve that one considering he hung-out with Rod Smith during his suspension).

Marshall is in the fold. He'll get offered a nice contract. He's not going anywhere via FA.
