Brandon Marshall Traded To The Dolphins

T.O. wishes he thought of practicing in pajamas.
Once again a premium wide receiver is traded and once again the Bucs are not part of it. No one has been better at doing nothing than the Bucs this year. I challenge you to find any team that has remained impotent and motionless better than the Bucs.

For the second straight year, the Broncos will pull off a blockbuster deal, this time trading wide receiver Brandon Marshall to Miami for a second-round pick next Friday and what is thought to be an additional second-round pick in 2011, according to league sources.

Well, that’s probably too much. Next year’s second-rounder isn’t such a big deal by itself. Next year’s draft is going to be unusually shallow because of all the juniors that came out this year. But it’s definitely possible to get first-round talent in the second round this year and both those picks together is too much for Marshall. So, good job sitting on your hands this time, boys.

Miami was hot after Marshall, as was Seattle. Tampa Bay showed some interest and even the Jets considered making a play for Marshall before their deal for Holmes.

I’m seriously doubting all this “Tampa Bay had interest” shit I keep hearing. Tampa Bay had interest in Albert Haynesworth, Tampa Bay was looking into Nathan Vasher, Tampa Bay still wants to sign Jimmy Wilkerson, blah blah blah. I think the Bucs just get roped into this speculation because there are so many holes on the team that they couldn’t possibly be ignoring all these players, so analysts say that they Bucs were considering them when in fact they probably weren’t. Like every time a chick tells me she is considering sleeping with me, I know it’s bullshit. They just know I have the best meth in town.

It wasn’t the draft picks that prevented the Bucs from trading for Marshall, it was the fact they would have had to pay him.

So, it’s looking like Clayton not only will have a roster spot, but he’ll likely be the #1 receiver. Freeman needs to be put on suicide watch.

I’m not a fan of trading high draft picks for old players. . . like McNabb. That seems like a waste. But when you’re talking about a young, proven guy, particularly a star, then I think it makes a ton of sense to trade the possibility of hitting it big for the sure thing.

I would have traded a 2nd for Marshall and I would have done it long before Miami even appeared on the radar.

Is it just me or is anyone else disturbed by those pajama looking pants he is wearing in that picture?

Since the Bucs supposedly have “had an interest” in almost every good veteran available and have signed none, isn’t it obvious by now that “have an interest” in Bucspeak means “no interest if it costs money?” And since players expect to be paid, “have an interest” and “no interest” mean the same thing.

Be wary of the young premium athletes that another team wants to get rid of.
