Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall supported embattled coach Tony Sparano Thursday, calling him “awesome.” His words regarding his quarterback Chad Henne were more measured.
Marshall said he’s “not sure” the duo could be great in 2011 together and then dispensed some advice.
“Just got to let it go, you know?” Marshall said via the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “Don’t worry about the consequences. Just throw it up and see what happens. Throw a pick or whatever. Let’s live and die by it. We want to play smart football and we want to be consistent, but at the same time if you look at what teams do with Roddy White, Calvin Johnson, that’s something I’m used to in the past. Just guys believing in me.”
Henne can be robotic, but his propensity for throwing interceptions in bunches is one of his major downfalls. We’re not sure that just throwing jump balls to Marshall solves everything. Marshall doesn’t have the same deep speed as the guys above.
After giving a so-so review of Kyle Orton, Marshall made it clear who his favorite quarterback still is.
“Jay Cutler was my guy. He threw it up, but that was so long ago and in the past,” Marshall said.
