Default B-Marsh calls out his teamates

Chargers take lead in AFC West with pounding of Broncos

THE GAZETTE
DENVER – Angst over a four-game losing streak was apparent in the Denver Broncos’ locker room after a loss that significantly hurts their chances of winning the AFC West.

The Broncos lost 32-3 on Sunday to San Diego in a game that was for first place in the AFC West. Denver is 6-4 after a 6-0 start.

“This is probably the most frustrating game I’ve ever played in,” receiver Brandon Marshall said.

The frustration boiled over after Knowshon Moreno fumbled just before crossing the goal line in a 13-0 game. Marshall said something to Moreno, and Moreno shoved him. Moreno was held back by teammates from going after Marshall on the sideline.

“Nothing long term, just the heat of the moment,” Moreno said.

McDaniels said he wasn’t worried about the confrontation, that it was a situation between two competitive players. Marshall said he told Moreno “we’ve got to pick it up,” and was asked if he regretted what he said to Moreno.

“I don’t regret anything,” Marshall said. “This was a playoff game. There were guys on the sideline that weren’t angry, that didn’t have a lot of emotion. They need to look at themselves in the mirror. This is a game where you’ve got to have it. None of us can make any terrible plays.”

Marshall made it clear Moreno wasn’t to blame for the loss, and it was “a bunch of plays” that cost the Broncos the game.

“Knowshon is a competitor, that’s what makes him good,” Marshall said. “I’d take him in my foxhole any time.”

The Broncos fell behind 13-0 before replacing Chris Simms with Kyle Orton at quarterback. Orton didn’t practice the entire week because of a left ankle injury, but was inserted in the game to give the Broncos a spark. The offense moved better with him in the game, but not enough for the Broncos to pull off the win.

“This was definitely a heartbreaker for us,” defensive end Vonnie Holliday said. “We had the opportunity to right so many wrongs by coming in and getting a victory tonight against San Diego. It was a major letdown.”

Here comes a 2-5 page thread of the guys who are anti-Marshall and always will be because he's a "flava clown" and whatnot arguing with the guys who are pro-Marshall because he's a beast of a WR.

I've got no problem with Marshall saying this.

But, he can't handle business like he did with Moreno. That's punk bull****.

Rod Smith led this team for a decade without embarrassing teammates on the sidelines.

Rod also performed, no matter who was at QB.

Well he has done his share of bone headed things, and I have a feeling more antics are to come, but I agree with what he said. It's time he called people out, at least he is playing with some emotion.

i love the emotion, and love that he didnt call out any specific teammates... he actually said he'd take knowshon into a foxhole with him in battle.
in fact, he's right. players have to improve.
bdawk may be rubbing off on him.

how the hell did he embarrass him? This is ****ing football... a grown mans sport if you can't take your teammate telling you we have to pick it up. Get the hell off the team. Have you EVER played a sport in your life and a teammate tells you "We got to pick it up!"

Word. Knowshon should have been benched at least one game by now. The fact that McD hasn't made a statement with him scares me. Thank you Bmarsh for the leadership. This is a team sport and when you're not held accountable in this big mans sport, you need to be punk'd

Honestly, many of the Broncos players quit during this game. 32-3 loss to a rival with a division lead on the line and some of these guys didn't even bother to show up.

Did he say something to Simms too I wonder?

I remember after Simms' fumble in the first they showed him and Marshall talking on the sidelines. Now they could have been talking about routes and hot reads, but I remember thinking it looked like Marshall was a little up in his face and had words for him about protecting the ball.

Not sure how I feel about this. On one hand you have to love competitive fire and emotion. On the other hand this kid was acting like a petulant b**** in training camp, showing complete disdain for his teammates. Now you're gonna call a teammate out??

This team seems ripe for full blown implosion. I'm not sure we've seen the worst yet.

I didn't bash him at all, wtf are you talking about? I was saying I'm glad he was at least showing some emotion.

I played football... did you?

I would have had no problem with one of my team leaders getting in my face if I deserved it.

However, Marshall isn't a team leader and Moreno out played him today.

There's a time, a place, a way and the right person to handle these things.

Dawkins pulls Moreno aside, I've got no problem. Some mouthy, emotional ego-tripping WR does it, and it doesn't sit properly.

That's my opinion. Feel free to disagree.
