Brandon Marshall Scores 4 TDs AFC Takes Pro Bowl: Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 176 yards and a Pro Bowl-record four touchdowns and the AFC used a second-half surge to beat the NFC, 59-41, today.

The Miami Dolphins wide receiver had a touchdown catch in each quarter, including an early 74-yarder and a 3-yarder in the fourth, in a game filled with highlight-reel catches. He was selected the game’s MVP and his four TD catches set a Pro Bowl record.

It was clear from the start, it was Marshall’s day. He hauled in a deflected, go-ahead 47-yard TD pass from Andy Dalton, while on his back, to give the AFC a 38-35 lead late in the third quarter. It was Marshall’s third TD catch of the game, tying Jimmy Smith’s Pro Bowl record set in 2004.

Marshall, making his third Pro Bowl appearance, then nabbed a 3-yard TD pass from Dalton that gave the AFC a 52-35 lead with 8:25 left and put the game away. Continue Reading…

Jeff Fisher Keeps Dolphins Rams Waiting…And Waiting…

Jeff Fisher Keeps Dolphins Rams Waiting: Jeff Fisher continues to take his sweet time as he mulls whether to be the next head coach of the St. Louis Rams or the Miami Dolphins.

Cue the “Jeopardy” theme song because this is taking some time. There’s lots to consider: the future of the Rams in St. Louis (perhaps the former Tennessee Titans coach isn’t keen on moving with a franchise again), just how much authority over player moves he’d have (the Vince Young experience is still fresh), money (Miami has a lot more).

Despite reports that he’d make up his mind Wednesday, that was not the case. As this drags on, there are signs that this is wearing on Dolphins fans. In St. Louis, the Rams are trying to plan for A) landing Fisher and B) moving on.

At this point, he’s wearing all the parties out.
