Re: RUMOR: Trade talks between Browns (Brady Quinn) and Broncos (Brandon Marshall)

Marshall is an unbelievable talent, but it's a stretch to say that he is a "must have" for us. In four years in Denver, the Broncos never made the playoffs, finished above 500 (9-7) only once and the offense never finished in the top half of the NFL.

not sure if the skins are in the market for Marshall. Not matter how much the fans want him to be here. He is obviously a tool, who doesn't work well with his coaches.

BM just needs to grow up...then he will be the best player he can be...but until he gets past being "baby t.o" then its not gonna happen.

Re: RUMOR: Trade talks between Browns (Brady Quinn) and Broncos (Brandon Marshall)

id like to know once and for all just what we offered in teh 3 way broncos-skins-browns trade.

it has been reported we didnt want to give up 2 firsts, it has been reported that "the compensation was there" (meaning same as bears offer) but the broncos valued it as quinn, orton then JC as their qb wish list.

i guess we will never really know, but id like to. not that any of it matters anymore.

Re: RUMOR: Trade talks between Browns (Brady Quinn) and Broncos (Brandon Marshall)

First of all, let's look at everyone that's involved in this rumor. The Browns, this is a totally dysfunctional outfit. Aren't they the same team that can't seem to come up with a decent contract for their best player, Joshua Cribbs? The Broncos, isn't this the same team that kicked Shanahan to the curb, pissed off their all Pro quarterback and was forced to trade him to the Bears? Brandon Marshall, isn't this the same player that refused to show up for training camp/practice and threatened to not play? Brady Quinn, isn't this the bum that was drafted first round out of Notre Dame and couldn't nail down the starting quarterback job in Cleveland over Derek Anderson? They are all misfits. Orton is no better or worse than Quinn.

I thought Shanahan tried trading him away at one point? The guy is talented, but definitely a bit of a problem child.

Yeah that's bad since Shanahan is known for giving bad character guys a chance

There's no way the Bronco's trade Marshall for Quinn.(Why would the Broncos want to trade with the Browns again? Didn't they learn their lesson when they traded for their entire defensive line a few years back?)

If he is traded, teams like the Ravens or the Dolphins look like a better match. They both need a big-time WR and that might put them over the edge to competing for a championship.

BM is a true #1 wr and it's exactly what the offense needs. He would make everyone on our offense better.
Marshall is a fringe No. 1 who clearly has the talent to be so much more. So many of his catches in any given game are of the useless variety.

He was a lot improved this year with Orton at QB I thought because instead of being a limiting factor on his quarterback when Cutler was there, he became a positive factor for Orton who doesn't have the type of downfield accuracy that Cutler does.

But ultimately, Marshall's catch rate numbers and other value metrics are the same every year, which means that, even though his improvements have been evident, we really do know what he is at this point. And he's not a "true" No. 1, like an Owens, Moss, Wayne, Holt, or Vincent Jackson all in their primes. Like Braylon, he's an above average player who is expendable at a good price.

Marshall has had 100 catches each of the last three years (he's only been in the league four years). I'd say that qualifies him as a bonafide No. 1 WR. Braylon Edwards is a flash in the pan. Good for the Browns for dumping him (and Winslow) when they could.

Interesting point here, but my response would be, do you consider Jamal Lewis to be a hall of famer?

In his first four years he rushed for 1,000 yards in each and had a 2,000 yard season and a pro bowl/all pro season. At the time, he was averaging 4.6 yards per carry, which is certainly a hall of fame figure.

It's not a perfect comparison by any means, they don't play the same position, and no one is calling Brandon Marshall a future hall of famer, but I'm making the comparison because Lewis' per play metrics were never that impressive even in his early days (including his 2,000 yd season) and he had a jail stint and predictably declined.

But he's one of six players in NFL history to rush for 2,000 yards (and I'd imagine Marshall is one of roughly the same number to have three consecutive 100 reception seasons), so shouldn't Lewis be in the hall of fame someday?
