Watching this game solidified my reasons for not liking Marshall. Last year when Thigpen started against Chicago with 4 days prep time and needed all the help he could get, Marshall messed up the beginning of the game by negating a good run by Thiggy with a penalty, then got another penalty throwing the ball at Cutler out-of-bounds and left the game injured.

Before this game Marshall said stupid things and on the field he dropped one TD pass: a good back-shoulder throw by Moore, ran out of bounds instead of scoring another, and despite what probably should have been a Jet penalty that Revis intercepted and scored on, Marshall should have stood his ground and fought for that ball which could have been a Miami td as well.

Big mouth, self-centered and not only poor play on field, but actually was detrimental to Thigpen and Moore who were both playing in their first starts as Dolphins. This guy is not an asset to this team. If Thigpen and Moore had gotten the kind of support that somebody like Brady gets from Welker, they might have been able to pull out victories.

In the game on Monday, the Jets were not playing well and Miami had their opportunities to win. Moore played with guts but Marshall just dragged everyone down with him.

I like Coach Sparano, and I will always miss Pennington, but the two biggest mistakes that the Dolphins made are named Henne and Marshall. This franchise doesn't have a chance in hell, until both of them are gone. The problem was never Sparano , but the belief in Marshall and Henne.

The problem was never Sparano?

Who the Puck do you think had that belief in Marshall and Henne? Vince Lombardi?
