If Brandon Marshall Is Going To Be a Problem, He Might As Well Put Up Stats

Yes, we all get frustrated with Brandon Marshall sometimes, but it reminds me of Brett Favre deciding whether he wants to play or not. Once he decides to play we're happy to see him on the field. We know the issues, we know the stats, and now my thoughts. If you're going to have a problem player, he might as well be one of your best players.

I'm watching the first half of the Pro Bowl and just saw "The Beast" (Marshall) score a touchdown. Suzie Kolber comes over to interview him and what comes out of Brandon Marshall's mouth?

"I love the city of Denver, its where I started and its where I would like to finish." So why not pay the man?

He has proved to be a playmaker when we needed one. Kiper's latest mock draft has us taking Dez Bryant. A wide receiver who was a playmaker in college, but had off-field issues. I wouldn't understand replacing a proven NFL threat with a college talent that carries the same baggage.

Keep Marshall and draft Rolando McClain if he is still there. Denver gets their new Al Wilson that we have waited for. Dumervil, Williams, McClain, and Haggan sounds good to me. Ayers and Davis would come in and offer more depth.

If we were to trade Marshall I would take nothing less than a first and third round pick in return. That would be hard to get, I know, but I don't believe Brandon Marshall has peaked yet. Keeping Marshall makes me feel as if we don't have to worry about the WR position.

Yes, Gaffney had a big game in his shoes, Royal dropped off from last year, and Stokley is a slot receiver. Marshall is our big-time threat when the ball is thrown his way.

It's going to be an interesting off-season for the Denver Broncos once again. This Denver fan says pay the man. McDaniels and Marshall should mature together.
