Brandon Marshall makes the catch X 21

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
The 2000 Bears are off the hook for allowing Terrell Owens to bring in 20 catches during a 17-0 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

And by off the hook, I mean they'll never have to worry about going down in the record books as the team one single receiver had his way with the most flagrantly. Let's be honest, allowing 20 receptions is never OK.

But, Denver Broncos' Brandon Marshall caught a new record 21 receptions yesterday in a 28-16 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. This was all allowed by a combination of Marshall's freakish skills, a lackluster effort from Colts cornerback Tim Jennings and a mysterious muse dressed in orange.



You know you had a big game when the highlight package accompanying it is 5 minutes, 45 seconds long.

After getting off to a rocky start with new coach Josh McDaniels, Marshall has found his stride and now has to be considered one of the finest wideouts in the game. His enormous game yesterday brought his season reception total to 86 and boosted him over 1,000 yards.

This guy is truly amazing. I think he is top-3 best wide receivers in the game today, but needs a quarterback to throw him the ball. He is definitely one of the most gifted receivers in terms of size and talent, and a great quarterback would make him a huge threat to opposing defenses.
