“This is probably the most frustrating game I’ve ever played in,” receiver Brandon Marshall said.
The frustration boiled over after Knowshon Moreno fumbled just before crossing the goal line in a 13-0 game. Marshall said something to Moreno, and Moreno shoved him. Moreno was held back by teammates from going after Marshall on the sideline.
“Nothing long term, just the heat of the moment,” Moreno said.
McDaniels said he wasn’t worried about the confrontation, that it was a situation between two competitive players. Marshall said he told Moreno “we’ve got to pick it up,” and was asked if he regretted what he said to Moreno.
“I don’t regret anything,” Marshall said. “This was a playoff game. There were guys on the sideline that weren’t angry, that didn’t have a lot of emotion. They need to look at themselves in the mirror. This is a game where you’ve got to have it. None of us can make any terrible plays.”
Marshall made it clear Moreno wasn’t to blame for the loss, and it was “a bunch of plays” that cost the Broncos the game.
“Knowshon is a competitor, that’s what makes him good,” Marshall said. “I’d take him in my foxhole any time.”
Glad to see Brandon Marshall start to become a leader.
This team has way to much veteran leadership to lose on Thanksgiving.
