    Brandon Marshall

    Im not trying to open a healing wound here just wondering. What was the real reason we let him go? I've heard many things; Character issues, money, philbin wants nice guys etc.. Clearly hes still effective and the guy can play. Just want some clarification.

    -Thanks

    Locker room cancer, off the field issues, and frankly I think Joe Philbin just didn't like him. No one is denying he still has ability and he would have greatly improved our offense, but do we want young guys learning from a guy like him? Same for Vontae. Do we want our corners learning how to use their hips in coverage, or learning how to get off the field when they're tired? If Philbin preferred production over personal issues, we would have kept Ochocinco as well. He was clearly head and shoulders above everyone else in the receiving corps in TC, but he's just not the kind of guy Philbin wants on the team, and frankly he's the coach. I don't care how good you are, it's Philbin's team and he should be allowed to have his own vision for our future come to life his way.

    I understand the off the field issues being the main reason they traded him away, but I disagree about him being a locker room cancer. He and Vontae had problems, but other than that everyone liked him. He and Hartline were very good friends.

    But I think it's just time to move on from this, get a receiver this offseason and let the Bears enjoy Marshall while he's happy.

    He was not liked in the locker room. I can tell you this for a fact, and I'll get called out for it, but I actually talked to a player who no longer plays with the Dolphins. That's the only clue or statement I'll make as to his identity. Well that and he plays a lot of poker at the Hard Rock. I'm sure a couple of guys in this forum know who it is

    I'm not ashamed to say I miss Brandon.

    Hope he does well in Chicago.

    So, we can expect a Brandon Marshall thread after every Bears game? Sweet.
