Jets receiver Brandon Marshall was on the Rich Eisen Show yesterday, and the two got to talking about quarterbacks. When Eisen asked how long it had been since Marshall had spoken to former teammate and Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, Marshall gave an interesting answer:
Just before halftime of the Jets’ 23-20 OT win over the Giants, WR Brandon Marshall got into it with DT Cullen Jenkins. Marshall addressed the scuffle after the game, revealing a little bit about the fascinating code of shit-talking: at least to Marshall, talking about a man’s wife is beyond the pale.
That’s hyperbole, of course. Mark Sanchez was right there on the Eagles sideline for this one, and he could tell you about a worse play that took place in this same stadium. But Marshall’s lateral attempt that donked directly off an opponent’s facemask was momentous in the same tragicomic way.
5. Man, I hope Clint Bowyer wins in New Hampshire today.
It's hot-stove season (or whatever) in the NFL, and we've already seen our fair share of surprising moves. But with free agency still yet to actually open, a fake Twitter account and a player with the same name as another have teamed up to sow some quality confusion.
After a loss to an underwhelming Dolphins team, the 3-4 Bears had it out in a closed locker room—yelling, shoving, everyone right on down to the kicker getting blasted in turn. But as far as postgame meltdowns go, this has the potential to be one of the more constructive ones: behind Brandon Marshall's criticism for…
Bears 7, Packers 0.
ESPN's newsmagazine show E:60 broadcast a segment on Bears receiver Brandon Marshall tonight and he is pissed off about it. Marshall took to Twitter to air his grievances before the show even began:
Brandon Marshall does all of the talking here, but Jay Cutler is the one you want to keep an eye on. Watch as he disinterestedly fires off a text message, pets Brandon Marshall, and makes about three or four vintage Cutler faces. The man was in top form both on and off the field last night.
The Bears offense was pretty much invisible tonight, until just before halftime when Brandon Marshall hauled in this touchdown catch.
If only there was video of the kid actually asking Dwyane Wade why he flops. That would be beautiful. Wade's explanation of the story is a decent consolation prize.

Bears receiver Brandon Marshall is one of the more thoughtful football players out there. He's got an extensive record, but he's been remarkably public with his struggles with mental illness. So when he has something to say about Jonathan Martin's difficulties with the locker-room culture, he's worth listening to.
Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather is back at practice after serving his one-game suspension for, among other things, a late hit on Bears receiver Brandon Marshall. Marshall had strong words for Meriweather after the game. Today, Meriweather fires right back, and goes personal.
Let's make this clear up front: No NFL players are connected to last summer's shooting outside Orlando that left a 15-year-old girl with severe brain damage. But a house at the center of the case was a place where NFL players—specifically, former Jaguars and Rams receiver Mike Sims-Walker and Titans running back…
When Brandon Marshall arrived at the stadium this morning, he was excited to find a package from the University of Central Florida (his alma mater) waiting for him.

It was reasonable to assume that the Dolphins parted with Brandon Marshall, for a discount price, to make Peyton Manning happy. It's the same sort of roster-baiting the Titans are engaging in with their very public courtship of guard Steve Hutchison. But things can have, like, more than one reason, man. Like Marshall…
