Brandon Marshall: “I’m one of the best and it pisses me off that no one recognizes it”

images (78)Ever since his arrival in the NFL, New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall has been one of the top players at his position. But people tend to talk more about Marshall’s off the field stuff than what he does on the field.. When there is a discussion about who are the top wide receivers in the NFL, Marshall’s name rarely comes up. So when he was asked about this, Marshall didn’t hold anything back. Marshall says he knows he is one of the best and it pisses him off that no one recognizes it.

“I definitely think I’m one of the best out there,” Marshall said. “I take pride in my work. I don’t look at it as, my approach is not one of I’m going out there to be the best wide receiver and run great routes, I look at it as my life’s work. Football doesn’t define me, but it’s a part of a bigger picture. And it’s my craft, it’s art to me. And when I go out there I just try my best to not only be the No. 1 receiver on my team, but being the No. 1 receiver in the league.

“And to be totally honest and transparent, it pisses me off that no one recognizes that. And it’s OK because all you can do is put your head down and work, and when you get your opportunities it will happen.”

I understand the frustration that Marshall has because his name isn’t brought up when there’s a discussion about elite receivers. I think stuff like this drive Marshall and makes him play with a chip on shoulder every game.
