Brandon Marshall hasn’t had much to say this season. He’s caught 22 passes, tied for 29th in the NFL, and considering the Dolphins receiver plays for a winless team, there hasn’t been a reason for Marshall, who’s known for his controversies and who admitted this summer to suffering from borderline personality disorder, to make some kind of outrageous statement.

Until this week when he had a few incendiary comments to make when talking about his team’s upcoming matchup with the Jets on Monday night.

Brandon, the mic is all for you.

“I think the past four games have been tough for me, trying to control some things, and, hey man, I’m just going to let it out,” Marshall said, via the Miami Herald.

“I don’t care if I have two, three cameras on me. I don’t care if I have penalties. It doesn’t matter; I’m going to let it all out. I don’t care what you guys write or what the commentators say. I’m just going to play football. That’s what I’m best at. I’m best when I play emotional. I’m best when I play with passion. You guys are going to see that on Monday Night Football. I don’t know if it’s throwing a football 15 yards in the bleachers, or getting a 15-yarder [penalty], or punting the ball and getting thrown out of the game. But something is going to happen. I’ll probably get kicked out after the second quarter.”

Marshall, by the way, repeated the assertion that he was probably going to be ejected by the second quarter four times. Reporters asked him if he was just kidding around.

Marshall's controversies
I’m not joking. I’m serious,” he said. “They want to fine me, hit me with a $50,000 fine. I’m going to play. The quarter and a half I’m out there, I’m going to play like a monster. I might get into a fight with Bart Scott. [Antonio] Cromartie, we pretty much matured our relationship a little bit. We used to fight in Denver and San Diego. If that happens, it happens. We’ll see.”

Dolphins PR tried to end the interview twice with reporters, but Marshall -- god love him -- kept talking. According to reports, Marshall wasn’t upset or angry. He was matter of fact (which, when you think about it, might be the scariest part of all).

Coach Tony Sparano said he thought Marshall was half-kidding and that Marshall probably was referring to his passion as a pass-catcher and a blocker. But, um, I don’t know about that.

“Football for me has just been too easy,” Marshall said. “I’m saying that in a humble way, if that’s possible. I’ve been blessed with a gift. I’m not going to overthink this thing. I’m just going to go out there, play ball, play with passion, play with aggression out there. My goal is to get thrown out midway through the second quarter. Hopefully, I achieve that -- whatever it takes -- if that’s what I need to get the season going.”

Hey, whatever works.

hmmm, maybe confronted with the humiliating reality that they probably won't beat the Jets onfield, he decided to go for the mild consolation prize of out talking Rex Ryan.

I'm with you JustAFan, I've been a Fin Fan since 1970, and it's a FARRRRR Cry from those days! I put ALL the blame on the ownership, I mean how much about football do all these celebs really know? Sparano has basically been handed his walking papers early when they pulled the Harbaugh on him last year. I just pray that someone with some football sense can come in and fix this mess. I won't abandon my loyalty, but I ain't spending another dime on 'em until they fix it!

Marshall is just another selfish WR runnin off at that mouth. He did it in Denver and now Miami, with a good Qb he could be a Monster on the field. It's to bad he's one in the locker room also and that'll be with any Qb. Miami has be the front runner for Luck right now. Still it's early Moore might go 7-5 and insure Miami dosen't even get the 3rd best Qb in next years draft.

He didnt exhiled from 9er land. He was never a 49er. He was a Bronco and its time for somebody to stand up down there and try to get those boys roled up. Their half dead.

I've been a Dolphins fan forever, but they sure are making it more and more difficult.  Between their thug players like this that they keep signing (with no results mind you" and their inept coach, it's embarrassing.  Maybe if the coach would take off his sunglasses once in awhile he could see what's going on around him.
