Post Marshall's hammy stirs suspicious minds
Quote:
By Tim GrahamA couple of former players turned analysts are suspicious about Miami Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall's bad hamstring.

Steve Tasker and Qadry Ismail told Palm Beach Post reporter Brian Biggane that Marshall's injury seemed rather fishy to them. Marshall left the Week 11 game against the Chicago Bears in the second quarter. He has missed the past two games and is questionable for Sunday's rematch with the New York Jets at the Meadowlands.

Brandon Marshall hasn't played since injuring his hamstring against the Bears in Week 11."When a guy pulls a hamstring at this point of the season, that tells me one thing and that is that he's not in shape," Tasker, a seven-time Pro Bowler and Hall of Fame semifinalist, told Biggane. "I could see it maybe very early in a game if he hadn't warmed up properly. But this happened well into [the Bears game], and he'd already been involved quite a bit. It was really a surprise to me."

That wasn't the first time respected former players questioned Marshall's conditioning. NFL Network analysts Sterling Sharpe, Solomon Wilcots and Mike Mayock were critical of Marshall's laziness in the waning moments of a Week 3 home loss to the Jets.

Ismail suggested Marshall was quitting on the Dolphins. Ismail, a two-time 1,000-yard receiver who won a Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens, made a mental note of Marshall being worked on by trainers before the Bears game.

"It was like, 'I'm glad he's taking care of his body. It puts him in a better position to win,' " Ismail said. "But after that it caught me off guard to see him get hurt. And it's been surprising to me that it's taken him this long to come back from it. When guys do things differently, like he does, they normally come back a lot faster than that.

"I'll be curious to see how motivated he plays [Sunday against the Jets]. In other words, I'm not expecting too much."

As tricky as hamstring injuries can be, I am surprised to see those statements. Just BS.

Yet it took Kenny Britt what.... a month to come back from his Hamstring?
I guess Britt quit on his team as well...

What idiots.

Well comments like these from the press often receive negative reviews from fans who are still enamored by the player in question. In time though, as fans becoming more disillusioned with some of these players, they are often less quick to defend the player or dismiss the comments. I would imagine that had this been week three, this article would have been vehemently dismissed by half this board, however after several weeks of seeing Marshall underperform and do stupid things, people are aren't as quick to defend. Only Marshall knows how hurt or not hurt he really is.

And that's saying something? We only threw for 50ish yards today.

No. But my point was that everybody sucked. He was the least sucky of a sucky group.

I believe he was thrown to the most today as well. So again, thats not saying much.
At any rate, for his salary, I expect FAR more.
