Brandon Marshall Back At Practice

I see a stronger player. He’s at an elite level for his position in terms of size, dynamic ability, production. I don’t see any back-off. Actually, I see a better player. “Obviously, he was a little frustrated about where he’s at, and he’s definitely shared that with [me]. Those are conversations that we’ve had. That’s just an athlete wanting to be elite, wanting to be the best at his game. His goal is to be the best wide receiver in the NFL on the best team. I’ve got no problems with those goals.” Although Marshall seemed to indicate last week that the staff might be pushing him too hard in his return, he dispelled that notion Monday and said Emery and coach Marc Trestman have “been really helpful.” “The thing is, it’s tough playing at a Julius Peppers Jersey high level.

He finished. I can’t speak for his comments, but what I saw on the field was a guy getting ready to play.” Marshall sat out almost the entire offseason program because of the problematic hip but was cleared to practice when the Bears reported to training camp July 24. Trestman reported no issues with Marshall’s on-field performance over the summer. Marshall, who had a third career hip procedure in January, established Bears records for receptions (118) and receiving yards (1,508) in 2012, his first season in Chicago. Marshall also caught eight touchdown passes, tied for sixth on the Bears’ single-season list. “I’m just trying to get healthy for Week 1,” Marshall said Tuesday. “So you’ve got to have a game plan coming off surgery, a third hip surgery.

I mean, the way some people talk is like they did that. I would love their play to back up their talk,” Marshall said. Marshall, who brought a Charlie Brown Christmas tree to use as a prop at his weekly news conference, said he wasn’t worried about his comments winding up on bulletin boards inside the Green Bay locker room this week. Neither is coach Lovie Smith. “What Brandon Marshall is doing to stimulate our team is his play on the football field,” Smith said. “He’s performing each week at a high level. Those are the guys that are going to carry us through this last stretch.” The Bears have lost four of their last five games, have lost their lead in the NFC North to the Packers and are reeling heading into Sunday’s game at Soldier Field.

Brandon Marshall: I don’t like the Packers

I think thats a trust thing with guys that he has on the outside and the guys that he has in front of him. He feels like hey we can make a play. You dont have to stress. Its not like, you dont have guys that cant make plays for you. You just feel like, weve got a chance and Ive got all these weapons and these guys blocking in front of me, we can make something happen. So its just like, he trusts me to make a play, he trusts Brandon, he trusts the line to do their job and he can relax and just do his job. It just goes to a team effort and the coaches doing their job and everyone working hard to get better. On his shoulder and if it could be an issue going forward It was an issue today but I was still able to play. I mean, probably so.

I don’t see any back off. Actually, I see a better player.” He’s a player who turned some heads last week when he expressed frustration over his recovery and said he might have rushed to get back, even though he received rest throughout camp and practices leading up to preseason games. Given his well-documented battle with borderline personality disorder, a condition that led to past problems on and off the field, that raised some eyebrows. Marshall dismissed those comments as little more than human nature. ”I was a little frustrated, and I’m going to be frustrated,” he said. ”I think that’s just human nature.

Brandon Marshall’s “rap sheet”

Sign up now! Brandon Marshall gives fantasy owners 113 yards, TD Travel Deals Daniel Kelley, SBNation Posted: Sunday, September 15, 2013, 5:20 PM Wide receiver Brandon Marshall caught seven passes for 113 yards and a score Sunday, as the Chicago Bears squeaked out a win over the Minnesota Vikings 31-30. Marshall averaged 16.1 yards per reception, a week after eight catches for 104 yards. He now has two scores and 20 total targets on the year. Fantasy impact: Little has changed about Marshall’s value so far in the season – he is quarterback Jay Cutler’s favorite toy, and is still one of the top handful of fantasy wide receivers in the league. With 10 targets apiece in each game this season, Marshall could maintain that pace all year and have a huge season. The Bears’ offense appears to be more balanced overall, which could give Marshall the advantage of defenses not being able to prepare for just him.

22, 2007: Marshall was arrested in Denver and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. He was pulled over driving the wrong way on a one-way street hours after a game. He later pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of driving while ability-impaired and was sentenced to one year of probation and 24 hours of community service. March 6, 2008: Marshall was arrested on charges of misdemeanor battery in Atlanta after a dispute with Watley. She told police he punched her in the mouth and eye. Marshall said he cut his hand on glass. Aug. 6, 2008: NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Marshall for three games for violating the leagues personal conduct policy. The suspension was reduced to one regular-season game and a fine of an additional game check, costing him $52,353.

Emery should’ve dialed down volume on Marshall

The Marshall contradiction is that he could understand adding offensive weapons in the offseason but then not be able to stand it in real life. In fact, Marshall lauded new offensive weapons and approaches so he wouldnt be triple-teamed and face more hip surgeries, and presumably so the Bears would have a greater chance to win. But Marshalls history suggests he likely will later complain he isnt getting the ball enough, and remember, he already has questioned his role in the offense. Thats why Emerys version of TLC could create more exasperation than kumbaya. One of the things about diva wide receivers is they stop talking about themselves usually only so other people can talk about them. They are the furthest players from the ball, yet they are the loudest and the neediest. Diva wideouts need to be the stars. So, thats the thing to watch: Is Marshall good to his word that winning matters more than personal stats? Marshall showed up at Halas Hall on Monday in a happier place, nothing like last weeks meltdown.

“By no means am I all healed or fixed,” Marshall said, “but it’s like a light bulbs been turned on in my dark room.” Tick tick In 2010 Marshall landed a $50 million contract in his home state, and married a beautiful and educated woman whom he says completes him. Life was supposed to be great. But all the luxuries and privileges meant nothing because Marshall sparingly enjoyed himself off the football field. He said he was depressed. After being scorned by so many loved ones, he was scared to trust.

I noticed last year he had Young Sr. on his jersey. Hopefully he can get his act together at least for his sons sake. May 13, 2013 7:47 PM What is up with Wideouts and their offensive psyche in the real world? Im sure Brandon will have a relapse of crazy sooner or later. As for Titus, he almost got his so called help sucking on a rifle round. Obama’s Ballsack says: May 13, 2013 7:47 PM I bet after he comes from prison he will be a real wide receiver. Did anyone catch my joke? He plays wide receiver in the NFL and chances are if he goes to prison he will be sodomized making his anus wide. Its a nice play on words.

Hes worked very hard, Trestman said. We saw that in training camp. That night at Soldier Field [against the San Diego Chargers] should have given an indication of where hes at in terms of being ready to play. Weve been mindful of where hes been at with his hip, tried to measure him in practice accordingly. We did that in camp.

Simpson outperformed off-season acquisition Greg Jennings , who only managed to catch three passes for a total of 33 yards. Tight end Kyle Rudolph also figures to get more involved with the passing game as he only managed a pair of catches last week and the Bears did give up the eighth most fantasy points to tight ends last week. Chicago Bears Coach Marc Trestman looks like he has successfully transitioned to the NFL from the Canadian Football League. That seems to favor quarterback Jay Cutler , who looked steady in a 24-21 win over the Cincinnati Bengals last week. Cutler finished with 242 passing yards, two touchdowns and an interception, but figures to post even better numbers against Minnesota this week. As Cutler goes, so goes his teammates.
