If all of that is actually true, then Marshall is BONED. Most people would consider being a drunk ass and getting your friend killed far worse than doing steroids or being the type of malcontent that T.O. is.
Interesting read, adds more complexity to a guy some have simply dismissed as a guy who is lazy or has bad character. If there is personal trajedy then it is something that can be character forming, perhaps he'll be able to mourn for his friend through TD's in a green jersey next year. Nothing says mourning like green. And maybe we can get him for less, Tanny should be on the phone with him right now offering security guards and a new contract. If all it took was Woody's hunting range to get Favre to feel comfortable with the move to NY I don't see why Marshall shouldn't be any less simple. Maybe we'll even get him a liscensed gun in case he decides to shoot himself.
[QUOTE=Ven0m;3505726]From what I've read, McDaniels is actually liked quite well by his team. He had issues with 2 players, but one is gone, and the other is likely to be out the door behind him. And being fair, Cutler and Marshall were never considered the easiest guys in the world to work with.
Given his past, let him go to New England, he'll tear up that locker room in no time. This guy makes T.O. seem like a good teammate.[/QUOTE]
There are other risks besides being a locker room cancer. The guy is a woman beater (allegedly) and could end up missing some games involuntarily next time he gets in trouble.
