Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall plans to play like a “monster” and pick a fight or two with the New York Jets for Monday Night Football, especially with Bart Scott and Antonio Cromartie, but the coach said he was only joking.
The Dolphins can’t afford anymore trouble right now, Matt Moore will be the starter against the Jets, quarterback Chad Henne told ESPN that he will begin surgery next week in Miami, and now there’s rumors that Marshall might intentionally get ejected or suspended during the two quarter of the game against New York.
Marshall had been diagnosed with a borderline personality disorder this past offseason. Now he is blaming his recent performance on his treatment. In perhaps the key play of last week’s game was when Brandon dropped a would-be long touchdown in the third quarter against San Diego. “I lost it in the sun,” he said. He had been spending time at a Boston facility to help him get over his disorder, but he thinks it is holding him back now.
“Dealing with the things I’ve been dealing with, I’ve been trying to control too much instead of being myself and play ball,” said Brandon, a six-year man and two-time Pro Bowler.
Brandon also plans on playing like a monster, which he believes will get ejected out of the game. He told reporters, four times, that he will “get kicked out in the second quarter.” “But something’s going to happen. I’ll probably get kicked out after the second quarter.”
When asked if he’s kidding, “I’m going to play like a monster. I might get into a fight with Bart Scott. Antonio Cromartie, we pretty much matured our relationship a little bit. We used to fight in Denver and San Diego. If that happens, it happens. We’ll see,” Marshall stated.
