More Marshall - Changing Plays?

It’s a fair thing to say that when your start WR and your back-up QB go into the game and start playing sandlot football that there is something wrong with the control a coach has over his players.  It says something more when the two in question generate the lone scoring drive of an entire game.  With that, Brandon Marshall opens up his mouth and lets it out.  He and Tyler Thigpen changed plays.

Marshall was seen on Sunday in a heated exchange with QB coach David Lee, over the fact that Marshall and Thigpen were changing certain routes to go routes.  Marshall said he didn’t like the “conservative” nature that was being called. (He has said this about the entire season).  It goes without saying that Marshall was frustrated and it heightens the realistic expectations of Tyler Thigpen joining another team this off-season.  Adding fuel to an already blazing anti-Henne fire.

Marshall said a mouthful about a lot of things today, you can read more here, and while he shouldn’t be opening up his mouth about anything, the already gone Ricky Williams said that Marshall speaks what everyone else wishes they had the balls to say.

Truth be told, Marshall’s comments also lend a little more to the insane development of Chad Henne.  Henne has said that he is repeatedly told to not throw INT’s but then told to go make plays.  The nature of the entire offense has been so conservative that no one behind center has managed to develop any rhythm at all.  Ricky Williams complained that he wants to play somewhere, where they move the ball down-field and he gets to play more.

All of this is great debate material but it does nothing for the fans faith in Stephen Ross with HC Tony Sparano hanging on a thread.

One quote that Marshall did make that I wish he would have elaborated on was in regards to a Henning question.  “I gave enough sound-bites today.  I think he is looking forward to retirement.”

    “Shut your damn mouth dude” Are you kidding me? What are you talking about? Have you read the blogs, the articles from the local media? Everyone in the world knows whats wrong with the Dolphins, so why should a player shut his mouth after the season is done? Marshall is saying what everyone else wants to say. Isn’t that what Williams said? Henning and Lee need to go, right now! Imagine telling Marino and Clayton to not change a play at the line when the coverage dictates otherwise. Brian, I am suprised at your comments. Sandlot football? Changing the play at the line when the Defense dictates, is a common part of football. All successful QB, WR combos in the NFL do it and its taught and encouraged by good coaches. Think about Marino/Fryer or Marino/Duper or Marino/Mcduffey or Griese/Warfield(yes,I’m that old) any of these combo’s not adjusting to the defensive alignment. You would be asking, where did all the yards/TDs go. Thats a fact!
