As soon as news came out that Brandon Marshall was injured and would be sitting out until training camp, Broncos fans used it as an excuse and said how they were "glad that they didn't have to worry about him anymore".
Well I have news for you guys, neither do the Dolphins.
Marshall was reportedly practicing in the OTA's doing positional drills. That is great because Marshall is ahead of schedule and should be working with Miami Dolphins QB Chad Henne very soon.
Now, nobody has to worry about Brandon Marshall's status anymore. We know he will be fine, and hopefully he will be able to put up another 100+ receptions this year.
Also, Brandon Marshall has apparently decided on keeping the number 19, so don't sweat it Dolphins fans. Him having the same number as Ted Ginn Jr. is actually a good thing because Ginn used up all of the bad luck and terrible catching in the number. Now, all Marshall will have to do is put the number and he will be sure to have great luck and be able to catch everything.
But seriously, I know that people say it is silly to worry about numbers, and I partially agree. But, anyone who has ever played competitively in any sport for a number of years can understand the importance of having a certain number. You just feel more comfortable in it. I know it is weird, but that is just how it works for some people. Marshall getting a number that he can be comfortable with is more important than you may think. Not super-important, just more than you may think.
That's all for now. Stay tuned for more posts on the greatest team in football.
