    he's definitely changed who and what he is from his time before Chicago; maybe he's making a case for WR coach after his NFL WR career is over. This might be one of the rare occasions where a naturally talented athlete is able to coach the position at a high level.

    If you can help people, in todays NFL, you have more results as a player because you can actually take the guys out and work out with them. If he becomes a coach, all this stuff he is doing that is having a great effect is off limits. You can't see a player until the league says you can. Kind of sucks for the guys that WANT to put in the extra work to get better.

    I think BMarsh has realized he needs to become the leader he wished he had when entering the league. I would assume his 'calling' will be higher than being a positional coach when he hangs the pads up.

    Back when Da Bears traded for BMarsh, I honestly never thought we'd be hearing about how much of a leader he has become or would have read articles about him taking a Harvard course during the upcoming draft weekend. During an era when more stories talk out about negativity towards NFL players off the field, he's definitely become one of the better success stories. Bravo BMarsh!

    He spent most of his collegiate and pre-Bears pro career with undiagnosed/untreated Borderline Personality Disorder.

    As a Bear fan, I am ecstatic about having BMarsh on the team. But more importantly it has been awesome to see how he has grown personally in the last couple of years. He seems to be at peace with his life and that is great for anyone.

    Yep, the transformation in him is of almost Biblical proportion. Saul becomes Paul and Brandon Marshall become BMarsh with his Superman cape and all.

    Oh oh, his wife is not gonna like being excluded from that list that include his home, cars and dogs. Especially nor even leap frogging the dogs. That sentence probably cost some serious jewelry and at least a dozen pair of very expensive shoes. :rofl2:

    Good for him. On a personal level its very good that he got his stuff in order and has done a 180. On a professional level we got an absolute steal and a great player/teammate. Putting up great numbers and in the media for all the RIGHT reasons now, this move was the best possible thing for both parties.

    This is a textbook example of how taking a chance on a problem player can pay off in some cases. The challenge is discerning who to give that opportunity to. If a guy like this crashes and burns, meatball fans are upset with the GM for bringing the guy in. We got BM on the cheap with the two 3rd round picks. But if he'd have screwed up bigtime right out of the chute and got cut, then fans would be screaming bloody murder over losing those same two 3rd round picks - maybe not here, because fans seem pretty knowledgeable here, but others would have been pretty upset with our new (back then) GM. Emery weighed the risk/reward potential and pulled the trigger, and it all paid off. I'd have no problem with him trying this from time-to-time on other problem players. But it all comes down to evaluating the person on a case by case basis. For every B.Marsh there's probably 10+ bad outcomes (NFL-wide, not just talking about the Bears here).

    Cutler and Marshall came to the Broncos together and really developed a rapport in their second year as Marshall began to string together years with 100 catches. He wasn't very pleased when Cutler was traded and he was very vocal about it and even though he still caught 101 balls in 2009 McDipshit traded him to Miami because he was another guy he didn't like.

    Marshall's production dropped in Miami and he wasn't happy there so when he got to come to Chicago and partner up with Cutler again he was ecstatic. Right about then is when they diagnosed his BPD and he began to treat it. He loves being here with Cutler and he's made good money his whole career. Now he wants to win a ring and he'll contribute towards that any way he can. He was always a great ballplayer but now he's a great person too.
