Brandon Marshall Wants To Get Ejected Against The Jets
Brandon Marshall feels as though he hasn’t been playing with enough emotion throughout Miami’s first four games of the 2011 NFL season. He is hoping to change that when his team travels to New York to take on the Jets this Monday night.
While talking about the game, Marshall stated that he plans to get kicked out sometime in the second quarter for fighting Bart Scott, but he plans to play like a monster for the quarter-and-a-half that he takes part in prior to his ejection.
“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…
“I’m not joking. I’m serious. 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.”
This is good to know, seeing as how I planned on starting Marshall in one of my fantasy leagues as a bye week replacement. I guess I’m going to have to look elsewhere. After all, how many points could he possible produce while playing in only one quarter on Revis Island?
