bmarshall Tomorrow Iíll have surgery ending year 12. Iím filled with mixed emotions. I wasnít able to produce for my team the way I wanted to but this was my greatest year to date. This game has shown me who I really am good and bad. This game has given me the opportunity to grow as a man, father, husband, teammate, leader.. . Iím so thankful for this game.. . The biggest lesson Iíve learned about myself is that Adversity kicks my Ass. Iím proud to say that after 12 years Iíve finally became the man I knew I was suppose to be by confronting Adversity with a Smile. Gods Delay isnít Gods Denial

Wish him well
I think that's gotta be the end of his career

I would figure the giants would cut him with only a 1 mil cap hit.
The end of his time with the Giants

He looked miserable

The Giants can't cut him from IR without an injury settlement, can they?

Three season-ending ankle injuries at the same position in the same game. Wow.
The key word is "delay"

He's not going out like this
he can go do TV commentary

He sure looked the part getting off the bus...

His wife was on a CNN town hall a few weeks and is a highly educated, beautiful woman. I was very impressed with her and together they have bigger and better things in their future.
Another lesson about signing aging vets to go along with  
Tom in NY : 10/9/2017 11:25 pm : link
Herschel Walker, Herman Moore, and Dorsey Levens.

Sometimes the memory of who the player was vs. the current reality leads to poor signings (See Washington 2002).

Lets add Darius Powe to the active roster and see if any of the 3 young guys (Powe, Floyd, Lewis) can be productive players next year.

No, but I can blame him for all the passes he dropped this year. Especially the one against DET.

Actually should probably thank him. He makes that and other grabs, we are probably 2-3, both Reese and McAdoo get stays of execution and we lose a shot at getting a qb to follow up Eli.

Really? How much production did Marshall give them? 18 receptions, 154 yards...8.6 yd/catch.

All that for what was it...$7mm? $8mm?

I'm sorry he got hurt, but the reality is that he was not open any more often than Victor Cruz was last season...and dropped a cr@pload of passes.
He's a good guy, and I wish him all the best but he looked like he was contemplating retirement the entire time he was here.

Yeah, 18 catches more than we got from Herman Moore who caught.. ZERO balls here and was about 5 years removed from his last productive NFL season when he was called off the street to play here mid-season because we had no WR's left.

Brandon Marshall was signed as a FA, was at least semi-involved the prior year (Moore, again, the year prior had a whopping 4 catches) and was extremely productive 2 years ago.

It's a shitty, lazy comparison with close to zero parallels.

Marshall had a lot of bad drops but was also part of a dysfunctional offense. If he played the entire season, he probably catches 60 balls.

Herman Moore caught... zero.
What a disasterous offseason for Reese  
Dave in Hoboken : 10/10/2017 12:03 am : link
looking back on it.
Sucks he got hurt  
Route 9 : 10/10/2017 12:07 am : link
But he mailed it in on a couple balls, had some big drops. Be gone.

This is really scary. I'm actually agreeing with Chopperhatch.
Good guy

Tough luck. Get well soon!
Great  
NoPeanutz : 10/10/2017 7:01 am : link
Like the Lavar Arrington signing, but somehow worse.
Feel better man.
I read it as a "goodbye message".  
Spider56 : 10/10/2017 7:39 am : link
BM matured greatly over the years and is a positive role model for the younger divas who still have a lot of growing up to do. It's too bad he couldn't get in sync with Eli and an injury is a tough way to go out... but I don't think he has a future left with the NYG and I wish him well. He'll do fine in his next career whatever it is.
great signing  
I Love Clams Casino : 10/10/2017 7:46 am : link
good work by the FO
I'm happy for him  
Gman11 : 10/10/2017 8:25 am : link
He became the man he wanted to be and everything except he kinda sucked at playing pro football. I guess if somebody paid me millions to do a lousy job I'd be all giddy about it too.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
Wish  
AcidTest : 10/10/2017 8:29 am : link
him all the best.

I'd be surprised if Marshall is on the team next year. My guess is he's part of the enormous purge of players and coaches coming at the end of this dreadful season. But he has a bright future whatever he decides to do going forward.

I don't think this is fair. Deon Grant, R.W. McQuarters, Sam Madison, Ottis Anderson, Lomas Brown, Micheal Barrow, just to name a few, were aging veterans who came in and made significant impacts on Super Bowl runs. I think any time you add an aging vet it's a 50/50 shot, and that is league-wide, not just with the Giants. I wonder how the Rams are feeling about signing a 36 year old Andrew Whitworth.
Would guess he's got a bright future in TV  
Kyle in NY : 10/10/2017 8:42 am : link
It didn't work out, but there's no ill will here. A whole mess of things haven't worked out this season.

Wouldn't expect him to be back next season. I wish him well. It seems like he's matured a great deal
It does read like a farewell  
JonC : 10/10/2017 9:04 am : link
Wish him well but he really didn't have his football head on his shoulders with NYG, perhaps he'd mentally already retired.
He was a better player when he was a diva  
David B. : 10/10/2017 9:12 am : link
Yeah, blame the coaching.

McAdoo: "Ok, Brandon, I want you to go out there and drop at least 50% of the passes that come your way. Especially the ones that hit you between the 1 and 5 on your jersey. And if you can drop them on 3rd-and-long downs, even better."

Marshall: "You got it, coach."
SO in one game we have 3 season ending WR injuries  
PatersonPlank : 10/10/2017 9:15 am : link
and one 4 week or so one. Wow.
Sounds like a farwell to the game.

what talent? The writing was on the wall when he didn't have one catch in preseason.....goodbye Ocho Marshall....
i really like the guy  
well...bye TC : 10/10/2017 11:02 am : link
and was hoping for a happy ending to his career. Sometimes things just dont work out. Best of luck to him.
Bye Bye Brandon  
Carson53 : 10/10/2017 11:39 am : link
You got 5 mill. GTD, now it seems like it's time to move on
to a studio gig for a network. Even before he got hurt,
he played like a guy that was not engaged or somewhat disinterested!
That comes across as a guy, who already got a taste of TV.
Nothing went right the entire off season  
Bluesbreaker : 10/10/2017 1:44 pm : link
I don't think that we saw the real Marshall out there between
the early injury and what ever the fuck is McHandleys game
plan . He never or I should say the offense never got into any sense of rhythm and had no real time game play to get
in sync with Eli . Hey well he wanted two more years he's
only getting one .
Hopefully someone can prove themselves worthy to be the #2
Nothing against Marshall personally,  
Mr. Bungle : 10/10/2017 2:47 pm : link
but his drops were absolutely pathetic, and he didn't exactly seem to be fighting to get open.

I thought he was a good signing, but he turned out to be garbage as a player. The Giants lose nothing on the field with this news.
