Cullen Jenkins Talked Sh*t About Brandon Marshall’s Wife, and It Didn’t Go Over Well (Videos)
At the end of the first half of the Jets-Giants game on Sunday, Jets receiver Brandon Marshall lost his cool and tried to attack Giants defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins. The only thing that prevented a brawl was Marshall’s teammates, who successfully held him back.
After the game we learned that Jenkins was talking trash about Brandon Marshall’s wife, Michi Marshall. So he had to defend her honor.
Here is Marshall’s account:
Personally I find it kind of hard to believe that Cullen Jenkins didn’t know Brandon Marshall is married. Marshall is a five-time Pro Bowler. Jenkins has been in the league since 2003. You’d think he’d remember that time in 2011 when Brandon Marshall’s wife stabbed him with a kitchen knife. Or how the two later reconciled, and it was later revealed that Brandon Marshall suffers from borderline personality disorder, and she basically stuck with him through all that, so in Brandon Marshall’s eyes she is a saint.
But hey, if Jenkins’ apology was good enough for Marshall, it’s good enough for me.
One thing I do know for sure is that the last thing Cullen Jenkins needed to do was provide Brandon Marshall with any extra motivation. Marshall came into the game just 69 yards shy of his eighth 1,000-yard season. He left with 131 yards and this game-tying touchdown with just 30 seconds left in regulation:
And of course, the Jets would go on to win in overtime.
So the lesson here: if you’re talking trash to Brandon Marshall, leave his wife out of it.
