Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall made waves a couple of days ago when he said that he would get kicked out of the Monday night matchup against the New York Jets at some point in the second quarter.
It is now the third quarter, as of this writing, and Marshall is still in the game. I guess that makes him a liar.
Oh well. The bright side is that Marshall has still managed to provide some entertainment in tonight's otherwise uneventful Monday nighter. If you saw what Marshall did in the first quarter, you know exactly what I mean.
If you didn't see what Marshall did in the first quarter, feast your eyes on the video above. In it, you will see Marshall catch a ball deep behind the Jets secondary. Shortly after the reception, Marshall did something totally silly.
He ran out of bounds.
There was no real reason for Marshall to run out of bounds, mind you. Antonio Cromartie was several yards behind, and Marshall had a fairly clear path to the end zone. He intentionally ran to the sideline, and then he appeared to lose his balance.
As a result, what looked to be a sure touchdown became a mere 46-yard completion. Ultimately, it led to a Dolphins field goal.
Bummer. The Dolphins are currently trailing 14-6 in the third quarter. A touchdown on that play definitely would have helped.
But hey, at least Marshall hasn't gotten kicked out yet. Assuming he doesn't, he still has plenty of time to redeem himself.
Mind those sidelines, Mr. Marshall.
