What! didnt steve smith send two of his OWN teammates to the hospital!!!

Not to mention coming right out and saying that if a certain QB played, he wouldn't give as much effort.

If we could get BM for our 2nd rounder, we'd be fools not to do it. The odds whoever we draft in 2nd round is anywhere close to as good as BM already is, are slim.

According to Orlando-Orange County public records (case 48-2004-MM-012392-O), on Halloween 2004, while a student at UCF, Marshall was arrested in Orlando on charges of assault on a law enforcement officer, refusal to obey, disorderly conduct and resisting an officer.[54]

On January 1, 2007, Marshall was present at "The Shelter," a nightclub in Denver, Colorado, along with teammates Javon Walker and Darrent Williams. The trio was attending a birthday party held for and by Denver Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin. As the players were leaving the club in a limousine, Williams was fatally shot in the neck after an unknown assailant opened fire on the vehicle. Willie Clark was later charged with the murder.[55] Walker has stated in interviews that the shooter was likely a nightclub patron whose motive was retaliation after being involved in an altercation with Marshall's cousin earlier that night.[56]

On March 26, 2007, Marshall was arrested in the Highlands Ranch suburb of Denver on suspicion of domestic violence after his girlfriend reported that following a domestic dispute, Marshall prevented a taxi she was in from leaving his house.[57] Charges from the incident were later dismissed on May 25, 2007, after Marshall completed anger management counseling.[58]

In the early morning of October 22, 2007, Marshall was arrested in the Denver-Aurora metropolitan area at the intersection of 14th and Blake St. for driving under the influence of alcohol.[59] A trial was scheduled for September 16, but Marshall instead agreed to a plea bargain four days earlier; he pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of driving while ability impaired.[60] He was sentenced to one-year probation and 24 hours of community service.

On June 12, 2008, Marshall was ticketed for an illegal lane change, then found to be without his license and proof of insurance.[61] The case was eventually dropped as part of a plea bargain for the October 22, 2007 driving incident involving alcohol.[60]

According to an article published in the Rocky Mountain News on July 28, 2008, Douglas County deputies fielded "about 11" calls to Marshall's home since January 2006. The article stated that one call resulted in Marshall being arrested (the March 26, 2007 domestic dispute), and some did not involve him at all.[62]

A September 17, 2008 article on CompleteColorado.com stated that the solicitor's office in Fulton County, Georgia filed misdemeanor battery charges on September 10 for an alleged incident on March 4, 2008, in Atlanta, Georgia. Marshall was booked on March 6, then released the next day after posting a $1,000 cash bond.[63] The case was assigned to Judge John Mather in Georgia state court.[64] On August 14, 2009, a jury in Atlanta found Marshall not guilty.[65]

On March 1, 2009, Marshall was arrested in Atlanta for disorderly conduct after allegedly being involved in a fight with his fiancee, Michi Nogami-Campbell. Marshall was released on a $300 bond.[66] The charges were dropped the following day.[67]


He's so misunderstood!


How bout we put in a clause that he can never live with a women while he is under contract? Seriously I think thats what the guy needs to do stay the f*ck away from relationships you suck at them.

There are not enough balls in our offense to pick up Marshall. We probably average about 20-25 pass attempts a game, and Moore is likely to complete about 15 or so. That's just not enough passes to satisfy two legitimate #1's, along with what the TE's and RB's will also get. And forget what Smitty says about not wanting to be a #1 (of course also he did say eventually), the fact is that we all know him and his competative nature well enough to realize that he will not be a happy camper if he becomes relegated to only a handful of targets each game. And don't for a second think Marshall is going to agree to go somewhere that he will not be the #1 option.

So while a Smitty/Marshall pairing sounds great in theory, the reality is that we do not need someone of his caliber in our run-first offense. We only need someone that can take a little pressure off Smitty. Marshall would be overkill.

Oh, and dismissing all the the issues Marshall has had as no big deal could be devastating to this team. Usually, what you hear is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to pro atheletes (listen to any ex-athlete and you will hear that very clearly). The bottom line is, are you willing to risk the future of this franchise on the hope that down deep Marshall is a good guy and solid team player whose just been misunderstood?

And remember, you don't pay the cost of trading for someone like Marshall for a one year rental, you do it only if you are prepared to give him a long-term contract at mega-million bucks. And if we did that, would we still be able to lock up all of the current core players whose contracts are up withing the next year. In other words, are you willing to sacrifice Beason, Davis, DeAngelo, or Kalil, etc. to pick up Marshall? I wouldn't, and I'm willing to bet the Panthers wouldn't either.

1. why dont we let the rbs run and let our wr catch!
2. why do we have to settle for less at wr. we have 2 1st round running backs that could both start. THAT is a luxury.
3. Even w/o marshall, there is no guarantee that we lock up our young "core" anyway. we will lose some of those guys. dont think they are going to give a hometown discount, not as young and talented as they are.

I am not sure the 20-25 attempts a game has got to be the case this year. Attempts per game are a function of what is working as well as how well we are extending drives and moving the ball on offense. Last year we ran first and only threw if we had to in order to keep drives going. If we couldn't run the ball like against Minnesota we would throw it like we did last year when Moore attempted 33 passes completing 21. The question is would we pass more if we had a better passing attack or would we continue to pass only out of necessity. Seems to be a circular argument. I would argue that if we had a better passing game we would throw more which would help the run game just like the run game has helped the pass game in the past.

That sure is a long winded excuse to talk yourself and others, that the team must do whatever it takes to get marshall.
To compare marshall to smith is laughable. Smith is a great team player, and has already done more for the community than marshall ever will. As far as trouble, smith has anger issues...and he was drafted a panther. This part of the conversation is over.

In case you don't listen to the media, the broncos will accept nothing less than a first round pick for him. They don't even have to get ride of him.

There are receivers in the draft. No, they won't have the same impact that marshall would.
Oh well.

I understand you will be upset when we don't get marshall....I know you will blame the front officw....I just hope some day, you and others, will come back to earth.


Smitty does charity work. So Smitty is a team player.

Marshall put aside his differences with the coach and went to work this year. He is not a team player.

Smitty punched a player in the face in '08... he is a team player.

Marshall's only on the field issue (team related) is wanting to get paid. Like Bolden, he put his differences aside for the team. He is not a team player.

Smitty was drafted by us, so JR finds him to be "our kind of guy".. yet he has punched 2 team mates on the field. he is a team guy.

Marshall pointed out he has to smarten up off the field.. no trouble in the last 2 years.. Compared to Smitty though, he's not our guy... (Smitty got in trouble how recently ago?)


This part of the conversation is now over.. I'm not following you all too well I guess, PC...

we haven't drafted a WR in Fox's entire tenure.. So what is laughable, Pantherclaw, is your next statement...

There are receivers in the draft. No, they won't have the same impact that marshall would.
Oh well.


oh well? oh well? seriously man? oh well, who gives a poo if we win or lose... I'm sorry my head is in the clouds while I do not expect Hurney/Fox to pick up a true #1 WR in the next few years..

and I'm the one with my head in the clouds...

:nono:

-------------

as for the 1st they require.. well not much talk is going on. We can wait 2 weeks and then be right back in the game.. let's pray that happens.

while we're waiting, we can be proactive and see what kind of deal the Bronco's are willing to work out...

as for your point about they don't have to get rid of him.. well, they have made it clear they want to get rid of him and vice versa.. so.. pardon me while I hang my hat elsewhere on that tidbit.


--------------

edit: oh, and yes I'm using excuses.. how that is relevant is beyond me. I have plenty of excuses why this makes sense.. I'm sorry excuses are taboo for you.. lol

Not to mention that if Marshall was here, you get the best possible curve for grading the maturation and skillset of Matt Moore. I mean, if you have Double Trouble, our O-Line and Smith and Marshall, you know if you're not getting it done through the air it's on the QB. Saves us the trouble of going through the "Jake Delhomme Effect" argument again in three years of wondering if it's Moore or the fact that he has only one option to throw to. JMO.

here is why we most likely won't be getting marshall....he's got a first round tender on his head and word is that the broncos won't take anything less than a pick that comes from the first 20 spots.

what do we have to offer? a second? sorry, i don't think i would spend the 17th on him either. a 2nd rounder would be ok but that isn't nearly enough to get him.

anyone who gets pissed at the panthers for not getting him were deluded into thinking that we had a legit shot in the first place.

we don't have a first rounder.

we aren't getting him.
