Brandon Marshall Says He'll Probably Get Ejected From Dolphins-Jets Game

New, comment

I don't even know how to respond to Brandon Marshall's latest.

The Dolphins receiver told reporters that, when his team plays the Jets this weekend, he plans to "play with passion"....and get kicked out of the game.

Seriously.

"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. 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 even takes a guess as to how much the fine will be -- $50,000 -- and says he's serious when he says he'll probably get kicked out of the game.

The Dolphins have beaten the Jets twice in the Rex Ryan era so, despite their 0-4 record and reputation as arguably the worst team in the NFL this year, it's not totally unreasonable to think they can upset the Jets. 

Of course, doing that without Brandon Marshall for half the game would make things considerably harder.
