Brandon Marshall is a talented guy.
He can catch. He can run all the routes. He can draw double and even triple team coverages. He can run after the catch.
Sometimes he can even make a teammates solid performance all about him.
Brandon Marshall is a star.
If you haven’t seen it already, there is a new Monday Night Football commercial that has popped up on youtube.com starring… you guessed it:
With a cameo by the legendary running back Jim Brown (apparently Jim Brown plays fantasy football; who knew?)
In the clip Marshall takes off on the snap and runs what appears to be a go route. While he is running, he starts talking to himself and talks about how the whole world was watching and if he dropped the ball everyone he knows would see it. This self talk leads to his brother and his brother’s manager, then his brother’s manager’s manager who knows Jim Brown. The same Jim Brown who Marshall on a poster in his room growing up; who now has Marshall on his fantasy team.
My favorite part about the commercial is the Bears are playing against the Patriots and beating them 28-21 in the 4th quarter when Marshall makes the fingertip catch and runs in for the score.
I really dislike the Patriots. I respect them, but I really dislike them. I have a feeling I am not the only one who feels this way.
What do you think Bears fans; what do you think of Marshall’s acting? Could this be a sign of good things to come?
