Dude dropped 2 TD passes, grant it they weren't right in his arms, but "beast" WR make those catches.

I am glad that overrated bag of hot air is the Bears problem now. He didn't do jack squat against Green Bay and yes he dropped passes that "elite" receivers catch.

I know it sucks but let's face it, with Jones we aren't a playoff team. Let's stack draft picks and build. We have a ton of picks in the first 3 rounds. BB status. God even with 1 or 2 busts that gives us 3 or 4 legit draft picks in 3 rounds

We need a new GM making those picks though. Ireland will just draft a bunch of garbage like he always does.

I hate to say it, but I can live with the drops, at least he was open to actually get the ball thrown his way! Our receiver corps is pathetic and wish #19 with all his headcase ways, was still in the aqua and orange, at least we would have some playmaking ability on offense that this team desperately lacks!

He dropped a td also and had rodgers throw his only pick..so yeah

ehhh...there was some circumstances as to why marshall didn't make more hay today...from awful pass pro to over the top safety coverage...that said i was not impressed with mike tice's ability to design ways and make adjustments to get marshall the ball and to protect cutler...that was awful...

cutler also threw some dead quails down the field and went other ways when marshall had single coverage...

Where are all the folks who were wanting Ireland fired because of the horrible trade he made in sending BM to Chicago?? Granted, Ireland has made some terrible moves, but moving Marshall was not one of them. Marshall is hot and cold as a receiver and not a guy you can depend on. I laugh when people put Marshall in the same category as Megatron, Fitz, A. Johnson, Julio Jones, or AJ Green.

I would not be shocked at all if sometime between now and next week you hear about Marshall getting a DUI, being involved in a club shooting, getting arrested for doing something to his wife, or getting stabbed by her again.....WHY would anyone want a person like this on their team???

hooshoops
09-14-2012, 12:36 AM
hot and cold yeah maybe...but wake me when one of our wrs puts up 9 catches 119 yards and a td in a game like marshall did in week 1...hell wake me when one of them puts up multiple tds period in a a 4 game stretch...

that guys easily going for double digit tds with cutler...easy

Sorry, but one game like that doesn't make me a fan of Marshall's. I remember the game on Monday night a year or two ago when Revis shut him down early and Marshall was done for the rest of the game. I think Revis grabbed the ball right out of Marshall's hands on one play and ran it back. He can get up for meaningless Pro Bowl games where he got 4 TD's, but when it matters he can't be counted on.

Draft picks are so overrated. We have 11 rookie starting. That's horrible. These guys don't know anything about the nfl. I find it so hard to believe we don't have solid bets at all positions to help the young guys alot. We could have 20 picks in the draft. Ireland doesn't know anything of what he is doing. Instead of picking the obvious pick the most blatant talented individual we go for some no name guy that almost certainly will not pan out. I have no faith in Ireland. There's no reason to have faith with Ireland when it comes to drafting and creating a solid team.

If you are referring to the game Revis butt raped Marshall and got away with a P.I then yeah, he was "shutdown".

I loved when we traded for Marshall, could get behind the trade to Chicago. But like him or not he is a ELITE WR. Just my opinion of course.

Remember how many games we lost because of his "beast hands"? I was in the end zone Monday Night Football against the Colts when he dropped 2 TD passes. That game still haunts me as a fan and although I am not an Ireland fan, I think he got that trade right.

He's elite but not top 10 elite

i would say top 10 just not top 5 it would be hard to name 10 receivers better than him

Well only if u like the buy high sell low approach of our trades. You cant look at trade in a bubble when we traded 2 2nds for him and gave him a ton of money

Maybe we can package in the draft picks we got from the Marshall and Vontae trade to move up or get a big name player. As of right now I still don't like the Marshall trade besides a cap space point of view. Hes hot and cold, but look at the attention he was getting from the Packers. Look at the attention Michael Egnew gets from the inactive spot of the roster.

definately dont agree all of these players are better.
Nicks and Green still have alot to prove. Steve Smith not at this point, Desean drops alot of balls too basically hit or miss guy , favorite receiver but hard to say he is better. Cruz also has alot more to prove

Based on last year and their ages Cruz,Nicks,Green are all on locks before I take marshall, and I still stay with Jackson before I get marshall.

well many a receiver has a good year or two but Marshall at his worst was an 81 catch guy . Hell Cruz dropped like 3 last week and nonbody is saying he sucks. 5 straight years over 80 receptions makes Marshall an elite receiver

Cruz droppped three - but keeps his mouth shut - you can count BM OUT everytime he opens his mouth

Even given our serious lack of WR's, I dont miss Marshall. It is time to build a corps of WR's that run routes dependably and catch reliably so that we can start to have a productive west coast offense. Basket case prima donnas who drop a lot of balls don't set good examples.

It's not about stats being padded by being a clear number 1 option it's about making plays and being there for your team. By this logic of five 80 straight catch seasons and not having as much as success as marshall has had in his career then that means magatron isn't better then marshall since he only has 1 80+ catching season? This is a right now top 10 not a all time ranking list of current players in the league. Right now megatron over mashall and it's not even in the same galaxy.

Hartline drops just as many passes as Marshall but is less productive and doesnt make the defenses double team him.

Megatron has had qb injury issues and Marhsall has had alot of just bad qb issues and has been on two straight bad teams . marshall is still a top receiver and gets the job down everywhere he goes. He is just a a trainwreck off the field. We should have never traded as much as we did in the first place. I said that from day one. I just cant act like he is not one of the best

Just because you're not top 10 doesn't mean you're not top 10 nor elite of course he's one of the best but we live in the present and megatron is in another galaxy(from other receivers too) who can catch **** throws and make his QB look like a genius.

Edit: Also to make it clear I would take marshall back anyday of the week the WR we our left with is humorous I had hoped we had a backup plan for the WR core. We were foooooooooooooled

Was Marshall even on the team when we played the Colts Monday Night? I don't think so. It was Ted Ginn Jr. who dropped the game-winning TD. But I don't recall if Ginn dropped two TDs in that game.

Nothing unusual with him dropping TD's. he dropped like 7-8 last year alone
