Here are some questions that I would ask Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall.

Q. First, what are some of the expectations that you have coming into the 2009 season?

Q. How do you think that the coaching change will affect your game play?

Q. How will the change of quarter-backs change your style, or will your playing style stay the same?

Q. Do you have to adjust how you catch the ball for the change of quarter backs?

Q. If yes, what are those changes?

Q. You and Jay Cutler seemed to have a great on field connection, how long did it take for you to connect that way?

Q. Besides the coaching change and quarter back change what are the biggest differences for this coming season compared to last year?

Q. Did you pick up any new tricks from starting in the pro bowl last year?

Q. Are you going to try and make the same connection with the new quarter back?

Q. The Broncos, especially in the Shanahan era, were known more for the running game despite having some great receivers like, Shannon Sharpe, Ed McCaffery, and Rod Smith, do you think that the running offense has hurt the passing offense of Denver teams?

Q. What are some of your favorite teams to play against?

Q. Are there any teams that you just hate going up against?

Q. What are some of the games/teams you look forward to playing most this season?

Q. You recently had hip surgery, has the surgery helped, do you feel you can play at 100 percent this season?

Q. What’s been your favorite part about playing with the Broncos?

Q. What is a normal off season routine like for you?

Q. The Broncos made some interesting moves in both the off season and the draft, do you think those moves will hurt or help the team this season?

Q. The AFC west isn’t viewed as tough of a conference as it was 7 years ago; does that help or hurt you as a player?

Q. In baseball, Coors Field in Denver is viewed as a “hitters park” because of the high altitude; does the altitude of Denver make INVESCO Field a “passing field”? Does the altitude play into how the ball moves?

Q. What is a little known hobby that you like to do?
