    You're right. Team suspension does not equal league suspension, though in some cases the conduct leading to one can lead to the other as well. But it shouldn't in this case; it's the Broncos' prerogative to police their own practices, and take appropriate action when a player disrupts what's going on, but I don't think Marshall actually broke any real NFL discipline rules here.

This is insane, the contract was good enough for marshall when he signed it why is it not good now. I say bench him and let one of the new guys step up like kenny mckinley or nate swift.
    I don't recall crud like this ever happening under Shanahan, and he kicked people off the team when it was warranted (Eddie Kennison, anyone?)

    Comparing WRs to Runningbacks or Linemen is apples to oranges. Eddie and Brandon are close to equal, in my eyes. We will survive without him, but do better? I don't know about all that.

    You do make it look easy. It's like a Champ Bailey pick, it just looks natural

    Every team has their fair share of those sort of players that are basically just filling a slot, but IIRC, most of the guys you mentioned didn't last long. Heck, the Raiders have stuck with Walker much longer than Mike did, and I have no clue why as he is a horrible excuse for a WR.

    Except he's still on league probation, and I'm researching what his stipulations were after the appeal, and "extra conditions" he had to agree to, for some reason i remember reading "must maintain good standing with the team" as part of the probation, but there are to many web filters here at work, so i am going to have to look later.

    The Circus formally known as the Denver Broncos just keeps picking up steam. We just cant seem to get off the NFL laugh-o-meter. Seein how uncomfortable MR. B is in the public spotlight. I bet hes been kinna miserable with the events which have been keeping us in the news. Sure hope the "system' is a great its proclaimed to be, because the whole orginization has bought into "system" is more important than talent idea. I'm interested to see the fallout of this Circus act in next years free agency.
    My friends over at Sports Radio Interviews sent me a link to an interview Pat Bowlen did with a Chicago-area radio station. While there is nothing earth-shattering here. Below is a segment of the transcript -

    What are the Bears getting in Jay Cutler?

    “They’re getting an extremely talented young quarterback.”


    Some one Please name me the last successful NFL QB that had to be taught how to throw the ball correctly.
