    This was my pick for this year's offensive MVP as I think he will settle down as a Dolphin and become the player the Broncos thought they had.

    When Brandon is at his best he is one of the toughest receivers in the league to try and contain and one of the tallest to try and outjump.

    Is there any certain way our below average secondary can do anything to be able to slow Brandon down so he does not hit 200 receiving yards next monday night and how can we stop the Dolphins from scoring at will?

    At 6'4 he is a load to contain,we can't stop him only try and slow him down,this guy is a monster right now with near 300 receiving yards already and could reach 1,500 yards at this pace.

    Double coverage will lead to others like Fasano and Bess to have big days so I don't think that is the answer.

    Is the only hope to try to outscore them? - I don't see a pass rush making a difference since we don't have one and I would not rush anyway since they have two solid RBs and the wildcat which certainly will be used.

    Suggestions for BB to consider? :),I don't think even he has thought of a way to stop him yet.

    McCourty on Marshall long, Chung eyes him over the middle, Bess doubled on the other side, Guyton marks Fasano...

    ...and Brace, Wilfork, Spikes and Warren have the game of their lives because the DBs have their hands full.

    I would hope that in the game thread next week we don't have guys in here *****ing and moaning about how our secondary is getting shredded to pieces because Marshall is running wild.

    Marshall will shred a lot of defenses this year and you can't expect our young guys to totally stop him,expect their youth to show its inexperience and deal with it.

    I will assume BB uses McCourty and not Butler or Arrington on Brandon

    What you've got to do is cut the hamstring on the back of his leg right at the bottom. He'll never play again, because his weight displacement goes back, all his weight is on his right foot, and he'll push everything off to the right. He'll never come through on anything. He'll quit the game.

    Don't give the guy who's trying to troll exactly what he wants by responding.....

    And the best way to defend Marshall is guard him early. He's a guy who does extremely well when he gets his early touches, but if he goes awhile without seeing the ball he starts to get frustrated and lazy running his routes.

    Maybe Braylon Edwards while he is still in Miami can decide to hang out with Brandon Marshall and have a few BRANDys and have Marshall drive erratically?

    I say let's have Good Ol Boy Matt Light bring his skeet shooting apparatus to the game.

    One of the funniest things ever was watching Light's futility in trying to teach Asante Samuel how to shoot at his celebrity charity fund raising event.

    I'm more concerned what were going to do to stop them overall. If the Jets game is any indication they'll get us into nickel packages and just run it down our throats, and if we do go to our base they'll just pass it around to Marshall or one if their other receivers.

    Beat me to it. Been watching other teams' cushions and see the same thing. DID see Cro line up close but the WR then blew by him.

    Yes....we can slow him down by having a tight secondary and an aggressive defense that will put pressure on the quarterback.....oh...damn wait a minute...

    I'll qualify this by stating I'm a Dolphins fan. In any event, I think the way to stop Marshall is to stop Henne. They clicked in the Jets game but I still think Henne's prone to making mistakes when he's getting pressured. Last night the Jets didn't really apply much at all so he had time for Marshall and the other WRs to get open. When he was pressured I thought his throws were erratic. I think his limitations at this stage of his career are more mental than physical. So to me I think the key for the Patriots D (and stopping Marshall) is whether hat-for-hat they can outplay Miami's O-Line.
