Brandon Marshall told NFL Network reporter that this game was his playoffs and he certainly played like it. The Dolphins receiver scored a single-game record four touchdowns, finishing with 176 receiving yards to lead the AFC to a 59-41 win over the NFC in the Pro Bowl on Sunday at Aloha Stadium.
Marshall had a very nice mix of acrobatic and beautiful touchdown grabs as it appeared he was one step faster and tried that much more then everyone else at this years Pro Bowl.
Marshall certainly left his mark on the game, in which he was named MVP. This game just went to show the type of talent that Marshall has. Throughout the game Mike Mayock continually stated that Marshall has the skills to be as good as Brandon Marshall wants to be. That has been the very thing that has led to all of Marshall’s success but also all of his downfalls.
Marshall put a little doubt in some of his haters down in South Beach as he gave the Dolphins fans a little flavour of the type of plays he can come up with if he only had a better quarterback to play with.
Marshall was not shy after the game complimenting his quarterbacks and basically lobbying the Dolphins brass to go find him a franchise QB. “Quarterbacks make it easier for me,” Marshall told a NBC sideline reporter during the Pro Bowl. “These guys are putting it in the right places and I’m making plays. It’s easy right now.”
“Down in Miami, getting a feel for different quarterbacks, had three or four of them throughout my two years there,” said Marshall. “Elite quarterbacks put [the ball] in the right spots,” Marshall said.
While an elite QB would not take away many of Marshall’s key drops throughout the season there is a thought that his play could be defiantly be elevated with the help of a franchise QB.
So Jeff Ireland and Stephen Ross, Brandon Marshall just played his hand, now its time to play yours…..
