    He is. But, I dont know how well he would do if he didnt get to see a guy about to hit him until a 1/10 second before it happened. The defender has about 40 yards of acceleration on Brandon, and Brandon isnt moving until after hes made the catch. When he breaks a tackle as a reciever, he has seen where the tackler is at and is normally moving forward for a few yards before the hit.

    I think Ben Tate will be the best back taken in the 2010 draft. (5/3/10)

      actually when your charging down field like that its ALOT harder to make the tackle, so if anything marshall should break even more. when marshall gets tackled by defenders they usually have their balance and can wrap up. on the other hand punt coverage guys are running at full speed and if the returner just sidesteps like half a yard you already see guys missing. how often do PRs go down after the first hit? its really rare.


      i don't think anyones suggesting we put marshall their permantantly but hey, guys like steve smith occasionally return when they need him so.....
      disclaimer: if the above post appears to contain outrageously illogical content, ITS PROBABLY SARCASM

        Most punt returners are also the smaller, quicker, more agile types. Steve Smith and Devin Hester both fit this bill. B Marsh is a run you over, throw them off my back guy. I just dont think he would be a great punt returner. He has speed, but, not the burners that Smith, Hester, Dante Hall have(had). I dont know if he has the vision really to see the opening gaps, as he really does seem to prefer to just go into a defender, than around him.

          "he really does seem to prefer to just go into a defender, than around him."
          This is what I truly love about marshall
          Hillis will be the best full back in the league by the end of the year!!!!!!!!!
