What they say and what they mean

With the big news in the NFL about the trade of Brandon Marshall and the pending discipline for Ben Roethlisberger, it’s time for another edition of “What They Say and What They Mean.”

Brandon Marshall, on the trade sending him from Denver to Miami:

“I don’t think you guys will understand. It’s an amazing feeling.”

You guys will never know what it’s like to be making $2.5 million one day in Denver to making almost $50 million in South Beach. Amazing.

Marshall, on his reputation:

“This may shock you guys, but I'm no prima donna.”

This may not shock you guys, but I’m a prima donna.

Marshall, on being a Dolphin:

“I think this is the best fit for me personally and professionally.”

“They just gave me $24M guaranteed. This place is awesome!”

Marshall, on Dolphins coach Tony Sparano:

“That’s the kind of coach we want to play for. You’ll be willing to run through the wall for those types of coaches.”

I wouldn’t run through paper mach
