Don’t be alarmed Friday April 26 when the Bears don’t get a third round pick. It was a pick well spent. Sure, we gave away last years third round pick to go along with the trade, too. You won’t hear Bears fans complain though. Brandon Marshall is worth so much more. Never in my life have I seen a Bears wide receiver play with so much emotion. So much heart. A commanding presence on the field, and a surprising leader off the field. New Bears General Manager Phil Emery had plenty to worry about with the acquisition of a player involved with up to 10 domestic violence reports. After three months of intense non-medicated therapy Brandon Marshall held a press conference in July 2011 to discuss his diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder. So far, it has been smooth sailing for the Bears and Marshall. We won’t count the lack of evidence punch he may have threw in a bar two days before the Bears traded for him.
Brandon Marshall 2012 #s:
Receptions – 118
Yards – 1,508
TDs – 11
Is it possible to compare Marshall to any Bears WR you have ever seen? Johnny Morris? Willie Gault? Tom Waddle? Ken Kavanaugh? This is new ground if you are a Chicago Bears fan. And new ground feels oh, so good.
