Many media members in Miami are scurrying around in circles at Miami Dolphins training camp waiting for Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall to go Mount Vesuvius.
However, Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano had the right point of view on Marshall’s behavior.
Last year while with the Denver Broncos Marshall punted a football in practice to show his displeasure after holding out a long time.
Then on Monday Marshall punted a football over the fence after he dropped a pass.
Then on Tuesday Marshall did it again to send a message to the media.
After Tuesday’s practice the media asked Sparano about Marshall’s behavior. “I didn’t see it, but, I’m not — I got bigger fish to fry, I wouldn’t worry about that,” Sparano said. “[I mean] if he drops them and he gets pissed off at himself about dropping them, I’m okay with that.”
Sparano is right you have to look at each incident as a player kicking the football or slamming his helmet after a mistake is okay, because it shows that the player cares about what he is doing.
If Marshall was injured or standing around and punted the football then it is a problem.
In the end, it looks like chickcken little got a job down in Miami.
