Brandon Marshall Blasted by NFL Network’s Mike Lombardi for Criticizing Dolphins’ Game Plan, Dropping Passes


The NFL Network's Mike Lombardi was not pleased with Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall's criticism of Miami's game plan in a loss to the Jets on Oct. 17.

Monday night, Marshall talked to Harvard University students about his experience with borderline personality disorder. He used his displeasure with the Dolphins' playbook and his ability to express his feelings toward it, rather than getting angry, as an example of how he's learned to manage the disorder.

On Wednesday, Lombardi told WQAM's Joe Rose that Marshall was in no position to criticize the Dolphins' game plan.

"No receiver drops more balls than Brandon Marshall in the league," Lombardi said, according to the Sun Sentinel. "He's one of the top five receivers in dropping passes. The reality of it is No. 1 receivers don't drop passes."

Marshall actually leads the league with seven drops, five of which could have resulted in touchdowns. He has just one touchdown in six games.

"Marshall is a good player, he really is," Lombardi said. "But he is a 'yards after the catch' receiver. He needs to break tackles and get open."

The Dolphins will look to get their first win of the season against the Giants on Sunday.
