Broncos don't take Brandon Marshall to Seattle

The Denver Broncos play a preseason game on Saturday night in Seattle.  And so the Broncos have made the trek to the Pacific Northwest.

And, according to the Denver Post, they’ve left receiver Brandon Marshall at home.

Apart from lingering injury issues and a desire to be traded and a pissing match over whether the P.R. staff coached players not to say the words “woo” and “hoo” in rapid succession after Marshall was acquitted a week ago on misdemeanor battery charges, Marshall has admitted that he doesn’t know the playbook — and he has been relegated to the scout team.

Also staying in Denver were safety Brian Dawkins, who has a broken hand, and receiver Brandon Lloyd, who has an unspecified hand injury.

As to Marshall, the decision could be interpreted as evidence that the Broncos finally have realized that the easiest path out of this mess of a maze is to trade Marshall.

    The Broncos just keep on giving me more and more reason to look forward to September 13th.

    Good Lord…get the Tarvaris Jackson for Brandon Marshall trade done with already.

    As of August 16, Marshall’s name appeared nowhere among the seven receivers listed on the team’s depth chart.
    Because this dude will be traded VERY SOON.

    You must be one of the biggest retards I’ve ever seen on PFT! T-Joke for Brandon Marshall??? Are you F’ing kidding me??? He’s not even close to being as good as Kyle Orton. He would get a 7th round pick in a trade at best and that’s based on the local papers after consulting other front office scouts. Do you really think they would trade Marshall for anything less than a 1st rounder….or 2nd rounder + picks/player at worst?
    Do yourself a favor and think before you type!

    just f-cking trade him already and start the rebuilding process you already accidentally started with operation jay cutler trade

    He tripped over a McDonalds bag outside the airport and missed the flight.

    Ya us Viking fans would be THRILLED! if the Broncos were really that stupid to trade Marshall for our third string QB (T-Jack) .

  8. Philtration says: Aug 22, 2009 3:04 AM

    Dumbest team in the NFL right now.

  9. briano29 says: Aug 22, 2009 5:52 AM

    Broncos are toast & they have no first round pick next year. Stick a fork in ‘em. They are done. Bellicheck coaching tree . . . MY ASS. Fix your defense & don’t lose your offensive weapons . . . Idiot . . How do I get through to theeeeze kids?
    Lets keep getting rid of guys that don’t like me ’cause I am a terrible person . . . Even though they can play football . . .
    glad I’m not a bronco fan . . .

    This is going to be one comical year for the spoiled whiney little coach’s son. Go get em joshy!

    Worst Offseason Ever!
    And people call the Raiders dysfunctional.

  12. BillsFan27 says: Aug 22, 2009 7:13 AM

    If they do trade Marshall then it’s about time – what took them so long?
    …and, if he leaves Denver then it’s ex-players 2, McDaniels 0.
    Poor Denver.

  13. Al Davis' 40 Time says: Aug 22, 2009 7:32 AM

    Tavaris for Marshall? What are you on? I’m starting to hate my fellow “peers” in the football fan world. Especially cause some Cincy fan thinks his team is somehow better without little to no change this offseason.

  14. TheDPR says: Aug 22, 2009 7:44 AM

    There are a bunch of teams who should be all over the phone to get Marshall. Carolina, both NJ teams, Baltimore, Miami, to name a few.

  15. magsdad1 says: Aug 22, 2009 8:23 AM

    What was that sound?
    Seattle women just took a huge sigh of relief.
    This is T.O. all over again. No, I stand corrected. At least T.O. was smart enough to know the playbook.
    This may be the stupidest action ever taken by a player.

  16. FFLRick8 says: Aug 22, 2009 8:48 AM

    Brandon Marshall is starting to look and act like a bigger clown than TO ever did. Man, whatta disaster for Broncos fans…..UUUGGHHH!!!!!

    I’m not a Cincy fan….but I will suggest that, just maybe, actually having a legit QB might be a pretty big improvement to the team’s chances this season.

    This is the last piece of Shanny’s CLUB-MED group. The Rat obviously had no skills as a judge of character. With the exception of 2008 draft, can you name a single stud that arrived who was team first?
    NOT ONE. Not a single player Shanny drafted is interested in winning. They were all physical specimens with either no work ethic or serious psychological, emotional or social problems.
    And: ANY Raider turd that thinks Denver is somehow worse than Oakland is retarded. YOUR COACH PUNCHES PEOPLE! You have had SIX LOSING SEASONS since you crapped the bed in the superbowl.
    Get a first-round pick for Bowel Movement and flush him away.

  19. LBX says: Aug 22, 2009 9:56 AM

    Give him back to Cutler and move on with your 3-13 season that is looming ahead.

  20. bigd1619 says: Aug 22, 2009 10:03 AM

    First of all I check the Broncos depth chart every other day if not everyday, and Marshall IS on there retard, he is listed behind Gaffney. Second, no way would we take Jackson, pffff. I think they need to trade him for a solid D-Lineman, they have good receivers and won’t need him.

    That’s really odd behavior and may be a sign of psychosis.

    Does the Bears’ no. 1 pick next year not count as a first round pick now?

    To the GHE bloggers, Denver may have the best re-built(ing) team available with top cap space. Top OL with quality backups. Top 10 WR corp (top 5 with Marshall). The future two backs in the league. And the magic 3 TE set. Two NFL starter QB’s.
    Have not spent the big money and have some very capable DL, young, athletic, versatile, and smart. LB’s and DB’s have All Pro’s and the best set of young talent. We’ll see by mid-season. OH and do not say you were surprised because you are reading it first here.
    Yo bloggers, get facts right before trolling. Denver has ALL rounds of the draft except 5th which went to NE in a trade last week. And if the Broncos really WANT to trade Marshall they may have two 1st’s again in 2010.

    Marshall to the Jets for Kellen Clemmens and a draft pick

  25. overboard says: Aug 22, 2009 12:08 PM

    The suggestion for a Tarvaris-Marshall trade is insane, and it will never happen. The Broncos wouldn’t trade a talented young WR w/baggage for a lower level QB who would be no better than 3rd on the Broncos depth chart. The Broncos need proven defensive linemen anyway, not another 3rd-tier QB.
    A trade that would make a little more sense is trading Giants DE Mathias Kiwanuka, who has Pro Bowl potential but has been relegated to the bench because of Tuck and Umenyiora, for Brandon Marshall, if you’re going to discuss a trade.

    If T.O & Ocho Cinch had hot nasty sex , This guy would be the by product of their tainted love. I am sick of his bitch ass , So just get rid of him or better yet bench his crybaby ass for season.

  28. ihavealwayslovedthatone says: Aug 22, 2009 12:23 PM

    Wow, what a bunch of savages y’all are—can’t believe you didn’t see the 2009 MVP in T-Jack in last nite’s preseason game like I did. Methinks the VIKES would be getting rappizzled in the cornhizzle if they made this move.
    Calm down, fools. And don’t put such a ‘silly’ trade past the Great Football Minds that make up the Broncos front office right now. Not after THIS offseason.

    wow – you guys are harsh, and critical. thats why i like this site, though. brutally honest.
    my broncos need to trade this clown.
    best!!

    Everybody wants out of Denver.
    Look no further than the new regime. (Liars, backstabbers)
    We should trade him for d-line, but, it makes too much sense so the Broncos won’t do it.
    Horrible time to be a fan, we are all disgusted with the organization, used to be a class act but not anymore.
    Fire McDaniels and Ellis.

    It’s refreshing to see an objective, rational post by a Broncos fan about what has gone wrong with the organization.
    If you compare superchop7’s post to those by Milehighclown (a very appropriate screen name based on some of his comments on the Broncos) and VegasBronco you would think they are talking about two different teams.
    It’s a very sad time for rational Broncos fans, for those fans drinking the McDaniels Kool Aid, drink up and throw some Vodka in there to get you through the coming season(s) because they’re going to be long and painful.

    Cutler looked fantastic against the G-Men tonight. He threaded the needle on a couple bullets and also looked great out of the pocket. If Hester could learn how to judge the ball when it’s in the air Bears could be contenders with Cutler. (Hester slowed down for a bomb then couldn’t catch up–he was 15 yards behind the defense.)
    As a Bears fan I was freaking excited tonight. I know its early (and Cutler was lucky the Giants dropped an easy INT) but I’ve never seen a Bears QB make those kinds of throws before. Thank God I don’t have to dellude myself into thinking Neck bear can win a Super Bowl for us this year.

  33. Al Davis' 40 Time says: Aug 23, 2009 2:32 AM

    Yeah cause Brewster is omnipotent. Thank god we have his opinion to relieve us all of our thinking duties! NFL season over! Nothing to see here. What an arrogant ass.
    The truth is he doesn’t know jack cause McDaniels hasn’t coached a regular season game. Don’t act like a Jackass just because you saw the Cutler trade on ESPN and formed an opinion… you’re not special stop acting like it.
