Marshall drops a pair in Dolphins preseason opener

Brandon Marshall makes spectacular catches, and he’s also prone to lots of drops.

Dolphins fans learned the latter point on Saturday night in Marshall’s Dolphins debut when he dropped two passes against Tampa Bay before leaving the game with no grabs. 

In Marshall’s defense,  conditions on the field were terrible, but that didn’t slow down the Bucs much.  (We were able to see those terrible field conditions, of course, on NFL.com’s Preseason Live package.)

Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne threw for only 19 yards on 11 throws, as drops were contagious on the Dolphins.

    Brandon inherited Ted Ginn’s receiver gloves.

    Yeah he must be a bust. Wishful thinking.

    Well, Josh Freeman had a quaterback rating of over 150. That should get him the MVP even with the loss. It was really a sloppy game . Oh, the mud and the blood! I’m so glad the games are back!!!

    thats because Henne was throwing lasers while Freeman throwing jump balls. alot easier to catch in the rain

    Brandon may well go down as the all time best Dolphin receiver ever.
    Take it from a Bronco fan, when it’s crunch time in the 4th Quarter Marshall carries the load.
    There’s really no one who can cover him more than 80% of the time. The other 20% Marshall will bury the other team.
    God we’re going to miss him in Denver.

    You also could have watched the game on cable television, as it was broadcast live ACROSS THE COUNTRY on NFL Network. But nice try.

    Some of us in Denver won’t miss him quitting on the team and the rest of the team asking for him to be benched last year. He drops a ton of easy balls whether it is raining or not. He may win a couple games with his ability, but he will lose just as many with his attitude.

    Some of us in Denver won’t miss him quitting on the team more than once. He will drop a lot o balls whether it is raining or not.

    Marshall should change numbers. No way I’d want Ginn’s number, especially starting out with a few drops in the first pre-season game.

    Chad heine, that’s a pretty good yards per reception avg, buddy. You’re gonna go far I’m this league! Lol

    the miami cincinnati game should be quite the drop-a-thon

    “Brandon Marshall makes spectacular catches, and he’s also prone to lots of drops.”
    If you are a Dolphins fan, and you are worried about Brandon Marshall, then you are as much of an imbecile as Gregg Rosenthal. Between the typically bad writing and poor content, I have no idea how this site gets so much traffic, especially from me. It’s silly of me to visit PFT for any valuable reporting. Hopefully, I’ll learn one day.

    TimeWarner doesn’t carry NFL network. Wish I could cancel them but they are the only game in town. It’s bullshit.

    Wooops! Always a problem when your all pro WR has a case of the dropsies!!
    Fish are in for a loooong year.

    Brandon is a beast. He will provide headaches to D coverage for sure. This is a BS story. Brandon dropped some preseason passes.

    Wow. This coming from a jest fan with Sancheezy at QB. You do realize that if Marshall had caught the one lazer that went trhough his hands and if Hartline caught the one in his gut, Henne’s stats would have been pretty impressive. Oh wait, I forgot. You’re a jests fan.

    That’s why I switched to DirecTV. It’s much better selection. Only problem is once in a great while you lose the signal for a couple minutes when it starts to rain. But when you call to complain, they’ll usually knock $10 a month off for six months (but I’ve been a long-time customer).

    Blame it on the rain.
    Dolphins won’t have to play in any bad weather stadiums this year… will they?
    This guy’s more like T.O. every day

    No doubt Ryan will see this and determine there’s no need to roll a safety Marshall’s way (or not).

  24. bleedaqua13 says: Aug 15, 2010 1:20 PM

    I hope you’re really getting excited about Marshall’s 2 drops in a monsoon Jet fans….
    it will be fun watching your faces when the game actually matters and he rips off 18 catches for 200 yards against your hapless squad.

    You henne moron. And if i were id think twice before challenging a quarterback who on paper had a better season then mark sanchez and his 20 INTs. But your right ill take throwing 5 ints in a game then 19 yards in the pouring rain in preseason with a muddy ball anyday. I think you shouldnt worry about miamis quarter back and worry about sanchez diving head first into a linebacker buddy
