Yeah, this Brandon Marshall punting thing is getting ridiculous

MDS mentioned earlier that Brandon Marshall got in a little punting practice on Monday, reminding some folks of his last days in Denver.  A silly little story, but something to keep an eye on just in case Marshall’s honeymoon phase ends quickly.

On Tuesday, perhaps unhappy with the attention, Marshall performed an encore.

Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel noted that Marshall dropped his first pass of the morning, then caught a touchdown on his second pass.  And then he punted the ball again.  We’ll defer to Kelly for his interpretation:

It was a statement for us [the media],” Kelly wrote.

And that statement was, apparently: I’ll do whatever I damn please and punt when I want to punt.  So shut up, already.

Kelly also notes that Marshall took snaps with the first and second team units on Tuesday, probably looking to get more work after his recent spate of drops.

  1. The bad news is that you guys would even bother to publish this nonsense. The good news is Rosenthal seems to have hired a proofreader.

  2. if you cant catch the ball do the next best thing, perhaps braylon edwards could use his kicker number as well and learn to punt, wouldnt have to pay any money to ask for a kicker number

  3. He wants to try out for the punter position in case he keeps dropping passes.
    PS – He is a monster in Madden 2011, catches everything thrown at him. I almost put Pat White in just to make it more fair for the AI. Its just sick, not used to that as a dolphin fan.
    So here is to hoping he gets over whatever his drop problem is this preseason 🙂

  4. So a non-punter makes a couple punts in practice for fun and its a story ? NOT. Trying to do so just makes any of you who write about it look lame and too incompetent to find real story. But then it Rosenthal so lame and incompetent are the correct terms.

  5. I can see it now. First play from scrimmage in Jersey. 75 yard touchdown pass to Marshall. He then gets fined for punting the ball right into Fireman Eds face and breaking his weak azz hat.

  6. I can’t wait to see “tuna’s” fish get de-boned this year. I’ll bet Chad Henne gives a dead fish hand shake too. Man, they are gonna get filet’d this year! Fish 4-12

  7. leave him alone, just let him play ball. its stupid to sit here and speculate on his attitude and thoughts, once we get to Week 1, we will all see if he was worth the trade. if he wants to punt balls after he drops a pass, no harm no foul, but go pick up the damn ball afterwards at least.

  8. I’ll do whatever I damn please and punt when I want to punt. So shut up, already.

    yet you didnt get that message. who cares if he is punting the ball? if sparano is cool with it and Parcells is cool with it then why does it matter?

  9. Jets fans are jealous of the best . Revis is out cromartie sux . And I feel bad for Coleman or lowery lmao !!!

  10. Gregg — how could you miss his best post:
    “– Brandon Marshall was working with the 1st and 2nd team unit. I suspect he’s getting more work because of his recent Ted Ginn impersonation.”

  11. The Brandon Marshall punting thing is getting ridiculous? Or you wasting yours and more importantly – our time reporting on it is??

  12. meh…he gets attention because he is a multimillion dollar athlete….every competitive person lashes out in frustration when things dont go their way…

  13. @megatron81
    Man, if the Fins go 4-12 (I’m sure two of those wins would come from the jests), just imagine who the jests will take with their #1 draft pick after going 0-16. Oh wait. They usually trade their draft picks away for over-the-hill washed up players. My bad.

  14. “He is a beast in Madden 2011”.
    Are you bringing up a video game in regards to an actual NFL take? Go on some nerd gamer site. Get that weak shit OUT of here. But to humor you, Im sure you create your own super shitty Dolphin created team and act like you have “skills”.

  15. Goodell get ready because instead of handing the ball back to the referee in week two he is going to punt it.
    I suggest jail time.

    Should a Lions fan be throwing stones? Seriously?

  17. This is like saying someones insane for cursing when they hit a bad shot in golf.
    (Which you might know something about if you were old enough to curse…or play golf, Greggy)
    As long as he’s not doing it in his little cry baby “get me out of here” act that he pulled in Denver, who cares?

  18. @ megatron81
    If you think the Dolphins are going 4-12 this year you have no brain.
    You can hate them all you want, but if you think they are a 4-12 team you really need to start watching another sport.
    And Florio, your reporting has become nothing but a drag. Perhaps your next article can be about how Fireman Ed’s feelings were hurt last night when a Giants fan sat down in his seat.

  19. While the “spate” part of “recent spate of drops” is accurate, the “recent” part is not.

  20. Marshall needs to change his number right freaking now! 19 is cursed. He’ll laugh that off, but Dolphin fans know better onbthis one. Brandon, you don’t need reps with the 2nd team. Jus drop the 19, and you won’t drop anything else. Trust us.

  21. “He then gets fined for punting the ball right into Fireman Eds face and breaking his weak azz hat..” LMAO
    There would be a long line to help pay that fine for Brandon.
    BTW- since when do “lions” fans come on Dolphins new and talk smack? I mean really, the effing lions?? dude, shut up already, you’re embarrassing yourself. The lions, pfft. Not even worth discussing. Leave the empty boasting to the jets. That’s what they do best.

  22. Punters are constantly dropping balls after they catch them, and no one criticizes them for it. Marshall thought what the heck, why not try it out.

  23. @JasonClary he was ranking the Phins high at 4-12. That team will be lucky to go 2-14. If the Bills weren’t in the division the Phins very well could be 0-16.

  24. hahaha BM punting!!
    remember when Flutie Flakes punted an extra point a few years ago?!?! lol
    BoycottFootball.com

  25. Tony Dungy is fine with Brandon Marshall punting the ball. he’d let him, and Vick on the team, but not Rex Ryan.

  26. @ JasonClary
    Why are you getting on Florio when he didn’t even write the article? Get a clue, just another moron, loser dolphin fan. Good luck with Henne.

  27. Let’s just hope Brandon Marshall doesn’t slip on a Big Mac wrapper while punting…that just might end his career!

    Jason,
    Sorry to disappoint you further, but for those of us that can read, would have noticed Greggggg wrote this article, not me.
    Do you wear sandals so you can count to 20?
    Thanks

  29. Are you bringing up a video game in regards to an actual NFL take? Go on some nerd gamer site. Get that weak shit OUT of here. But to humor you, Im sure you create your own super shitty Dolphin created team and act like you have “skills”.

    No, I will let his single game catch record and 3 100 plus catch seasons do that talking, that is why I expect him to do well on the field.
    However, I was making a fun observeration about his performance in Madden. I am sorry you are a closet jet fan still sore we swept you last year while you cling to a loud talking team and couldn’t realise that difference. Or have a low reading comprehension. whichever you prefer.

  30. It is going to be soooo sad when Fish lose first 4 games @ Buffalo, @ Minny, Jets and N.E.
    Cries from the Fla wastelands “We want the other Chad” will be heard, but not acted upon.
    Then B. Marshall will really become agitated.
    Can’t wait !!!

  31. For all you silly jests fans talking smack on here about someone kicking the ball, that is just way too funny. That kind of stuff is not only allowed in jests camp but expected. If I were you, I’d worry about who is going to stop Henne from putting up 350+ yards on that defense. Sorgi and Bomar almost got that many yards. Sure, it was against 2nd teamers, but I thought Rexy was a defensive genious?

  32. You jets fans are sure dumb to come on here talking smack after your team got beotch slapped by the Giants. Your mighty defense gave up 31 points to a team with a bunch of no name receivers. Goes to show how overrated your team really is.

  33. I loved Mashall in denver, loath him in Miami but he is a dominate WR in todays game. Regardless of the drops which I’m sure he will come around.
    With that being said, welcome to the world of Brandon and the distractions he brings to a club.

  34. Actually, this was his first incident (if you can call it that). So far, I’ve just read how he’s been an ideal teammate, great in the community and good in practice. But guess time will tell.

  35. except for the ‘attitude’ thing here…. I don’t see the difference between him and Ginn yet…
    actually Ginn caught more….
