Brandon Marshall fails on lateral attempt, loses fumble

SHARE Brandon Marshall fails on lateral attempt, loses fumble

When it comes to production, New York Jets wideout Brandon Marshall is one of the best in the NFL. Physically, the 6-foot-4 receiver has the measurables to matchup well against any corner in the league.

The problem is, he has a penchant for untimely plays and bone-headed plays.

In Sunday’s game against the Eagles, Marshall thought he could make up all of the points the Jets were down on a single, desperation lateral attempt. It did not end well.

As good as he may be, these are the types of plays that Calvin Johnson, A.J. Green, Julio Jones and Dez Bryant have avoided — for the most part.

It’s good to want to do your part in helping your team stay in a game but abandoning the fundamentals is a costly mistake.
