Dolphins' Marshall plans MNF ejection
Miami Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall says he is going to turn things up several notches for the Monday night game against the New York Jets.
Marshall, whose Dolphins are winless at 0-4, said he might even "get kicked out after the second quarter," according to 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," Marshall said. "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 went on to say that he is serious about such antics.
“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," he said. "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.”
That's probably not what the NFL wanted to hear, but in a backhanded kind of way, ESPN might be cheering, because it just added to life to a potential dud game involving one winless team and one that has lost three straight after a 2-0 start.
