    Default Is Miami this bad?

    Brandon Marshall thinks Jerry Rice wouldn’t be effective in Miami | ProFootballTalk

    Brandon Marshall
    says he’s glad the Dolphins traded him to the Bears this offseason because he doesn’t think he would have been effective in Miami this year. In fact, he doesn’t think any wide receiver in NFL history would have been effective in Miami this year.

    In an interview on 740 The Game, Marshall took a parting shot at the Dolphins, saying he thinks they were wise to trade him because in their offense, with their quarterbacks, they wouldn’t have been able to put him in a position to make plays.

    “It doesn’t make any sense to pay a guy $2 million and only expect him to have 60 or 65 receptions, or 70 receptions in this new offense,” Marshall said. “And also, if you don’t have a quarterback, it doesn’t matter who you have out there. You can bring Jerry Rice back in his prime and he’s not going to be effective. So it makes sense on a business end, and also the fit just philosophy-wise, wasn’t there. I can understand the change, and honestly this is the best move that could have happened for both sides.”

    Maybe he shouldn't have said it, but he's not wrong.

    Maybe if he didn't drop so many balls he would have had that many receptions. Miami won some tough games last year. They were better off getting rid of Marshall.

    I agree, Marshall is definitely good but he is a problem which has been the pattern.

    Three teams in a little over 24 months for Marshall. I think he needs to take a look into the mirror.
