Post Exactly how tough is it to cover new Dolphins WR Marshall

I was in Denver over the weekend, checking out the Broncos’ mini-camp while working on a couple different assignments, and Goodman was gracious enough to provide insight on Marshall after Saturday’s practice.

What’s it like to cover Brandon?
“Tough. I think it’s easier to think of a weakness for Brandon Marshall than to name all the strengths. He’s a big guy, uses his body well, a guy that can get behind you, and if he doesn’t get behind you he can go on top of you. He’s a strong guy. He can run every route in the book. You have to be leery of the ‘go’ route as well as the intermediate stuff. When I think of a 230 pound guy that’s 6-4 and a guy that can run after the catch, it’s pretty dangerous. Definitely one of the top five receivers in the league.”

Did you see him breaking a lot of tackles?
“Yeah, and guys not wanting to tackle him, too. It’s obvious on film, Whether it’s the secondary guys or the guys in the middle. He’s a guy that is willing to go across the middle, 230 pounds, and linebackers have to think twice about tackling him. He’s a difference maker.

Cant wait to see this image in 2010:

Dolphins trail NY Jets 24-20 late in the 4th quarter. Ricky and Ronnie have bled the clock down to :38 seconds to go, and NY is down to its final time out. 3rd and 8 to go from the Jets 45 yard line...... Henne under center, Marshall in motion to the left, and the Jets look like they are bringing heat.... Henne drops back, looks off Revis who is one on one with Hartline, finds Marshall with single coverage on Bart Scott. Henne hits Marshall on the inside slant, Scott misses the tackle, Marshall is storming through the secondary....... one man to beat. Jim Leonhard has a bead on Marshall..... Marshall trucks him.....picking up speed,..... the 20....... the 10...... Revis has the angle, Marshall stiff arms, .....Touchdown!!

Go Phins!!

The man is a beast. He is uncoverable...and I'm not even sure that's a word.
