Brandon Marshall continues to cover himself in glory

For the second straight game, Brandon Marshall was called for a penalty for throwing a football.

Last week, it was a delay-of-game after he chucked the ball out of frustration.  On Thursday night, he tossed the ball to his old teammate Jay Cutler on the sideline and was called for a 15-yard penalty.

Marshall and Cutler were seen talking before the game, so he probably was just trying to have a little fun with a friend.  But it was a bone-headed move that cost his struggling offense yards.  Marshall also dropped two passes on the drive, including one that would have gone for a first down.

Oh, and Marshall had a holding penalty that wiped out a Tyler Thigpen first down run earlier in the game.   Nights like these are why Josh McDaniels was fine trading Marshall away.

The Bears have controlled the game, but only lead 6-0 midway through the second quarter.

    I believe it was a block in the back, not a hold

    Don’t even start defending McDaniels Rosnethal… you and everyone else who follows football knows that McDaniels’ dumbass personnel moves have knocked the franchise out of contention for the next 5 years. Seriously, lets review: he traded Brandon Marshall, Jay Culter, and Peyton Hillis, all of which are or were offensive superstars, for: Brady Quinn, Kyle Orton, and draft picks he used to trade up for Tim Tebow… appears that McDaniels likes collecting streaky and/or ineffective qbs as much as Gruden did back in the day…McDaniels hiring was the best thing to happen to the Chiefs/Raiders/Chargers since Elway retired

    This guy is a bum. Good riddance to him. I’m sure Cutler giggles every time he thinks about not having to look at this guy every day in practice. By the way Greg I believe he dropped a first DOWN catch not a first TIME catch. You have got to be the most inept writer alive.

    Brandon Marshall. Get him with a real QB, a real team, scary. But the window is definitely closing.

    Meanwhile, back in Denver, Brandon Lloyd is tearing it up on a weekly basis and NOT acting like an immature juvenile delinquent. Good riddance, B-Marsh.

    Marshall also dropped two passes on the drive, including one that would have gone for a first time.
