Brandon Marshall calls Ryan Mallett “The hip Matty Ice”

AP

Brandon Marshall came up with a more flattering nickname for Ryan Mallett than “Caucasian Street Guy.”

In a series of Tweets Tuesday that seemingly pushed for the Dolphins to draft Ryan Mallett, Marshall called Mallett “the hip Matty Ice” in response to a tweet from Roddy White.   Nice.

That line came in jest, but Marshall’s appreciation for Mallett was serious.

“Listen to me. Ryan Mallett will be an All-Pro Qb,” Marshall wrote.

Marshall, who quickly has become one of the more entertaining players to follow on Twitter, was in a predictive mood last night.

“Blog it . . . Hate it . . . Criticize it . . . Dolphins and 49ers in Super Bowl XLVI,” Marshall said.

We like the optimism.  But there’s a much better chance of Mallett joining Marshall as a teammate than Miami and San Francisco reaching the Super Bowl.

(Thanks to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post for pointing this one out.)

  1. My thoughts were right. We (black people) don’t have problems with white people who have a little “street” to them. It’s other white people who hate on them and say things that are racist like (they think they black, or call them the w word). Those who thought Jamie was racist because of his comments on Mallet didn’t realize he was giving him some support.

  2. Since when has a positive endorsement from a guy like Marshall been a good thing for anyones career? Not to say he isn’t right…I mean, you dont get considered as a first round QB with nothing going for you.

  3. Awww… how cute.

    The “dim TO” already has a little nickname for the next guy who’ll get flamed for not throwing to other receivers.

  4. Ryan Mallett couldn’t hold Matt Ryan’s jock.

    He’s more “Matty Vinegar & Water” than Matty Ice.

    Screw that Petrino spawn douchenozzle.

  5. “We like the optimism. But there’s a much better chance of Mallett joining Marshall as a teammate than Miami and San Francisco reaching the Super Bowl.”

    love it…

  6. Is there a more overrated player in the entire NFL than Brandon Marshall??? Impossible to take this clown seriously.

  7. He must be playing Tecmo Bowl.

    Dolphins will once again be battling for third place with Buffalo in AFC East. The total meltdown is coming very soon in Miami as Marshall continues not gettting his way.

    At least the Dolphins will entertain their fans with the cast of Teen Mom 2, Mob Wives and some former American idol castoff from the 4th season. That is what puts fans in the stands.

    Worst owner with no idea how to run a football team in the league. Ross and his goons woud be better off running a UFL team.

  8. Mallett is going to be way better than Matt “without Roddy I’d be nothing” Ryan

  9. I agree with Marshall. I think Mallet is getting knocked for the way he talks and carries hiimself. I want anyone to measure his skills as a QB up against any of the top guys in an NFL game situation.

    Also, and I know this sounds crazy, but Tyrod Taylor of VT is looking like he’s going to be a good NFL QB. He’s got better escapabilty than Drew Brees, an inferior arm obviously, but they see the field similarly, and that is key, considering they are both around 6′ tall.

  10. Matt Ryan would be average were it not for Turner’s running, and White’s and Gonzalez’s receiving skills.

    Oh, also, Tramon Williams send his regards, Matty.

    So you think that an unproven college QB can measure up with the top NFL guys.. This guy really isnt that great honestly.. And the fact that your even talking about tyrod taylor is completely retarted… The guy is a better version of pat white lmao.. And i guarantee you he does not see the field from a football IQ perspective like Brees.. I cant believe some of you people on here

  12. How funny is it that the picture in this post is of the Dolphins sideline looking at – what else – a field goal attempt. It’s really hard being a Dolphins fan.

  13. Another summa cum laude deciding that the world needs to hear his thoughts on how to build a winning football program.

    *yawn*

  14. ” Tyrod Taylor of VT is looking like he’s going to be a good NFL QB. He’s got better escapabilty than Drew Brees, an inferior arm obviously, but they see the field similarly, and that is key, considering they are both around 6′ tall.”

    paraphrased: taylor is faster than brees, cant throw like him, but since their both 6 feet tall than they must be comparable in terms of their football vision.
    sorry but “seeing the field” has more to do with reading the play than physically viewing the field from the same trajectory

  15. Marshall will be traded for anyone that would give up 2n round pick for him. He’s garbage

  16. it’s funny that Marshall gives relates him to “Matty Ice”.

    Hey Marshall, you should double check how Matt Ryan got that nickname. It came from clutch situations, winning close games. Something that outside of the off field issues, is probably the biggest concern with Mallett, he chokes under pressure

  17. Oh how Marshall wishes the Dolphins had picked Matt Ryan over Chad Henne or Jake Long right about now… I do think it’s a compliment to Matt Ryan that players are now comparing rookies to him over the usual Manning/Brady comparisons.

  18. As a Niner fan I gotta love the optimism for San Fran, but Mike Greenberg picked them for the Super Bowl last year on his ESPN picks and we all know how that turned out.

    No, my point was they move in the pocket and feel pressure similarly. I guess (again) I should have screened my post via 3rd party reviewer prior to submitting it. Also, while we’re on the subject their does not equal they are.

    Keep up the great work, Mike.

  21. Is there any evidence that he’s from the “streets” other than his ridiculous wigger accent? There are plenty of suburban posers who talk like that because they think it’s cool. Maybe he’s one of those wannabe gangster jackasses. He certainly acts like a jackass off the field.
