Look, Giants fans. I get if you’re bent. There are people to blame. The front office. The coach. Hell, Eli — who Ben McAdoo rolled under the bus postgame, after he failed to get a snap off at the goal line. But here’s who you don’t blame: BRANDON MARSHALL. Or at least if you do — blame the RIGHT Brandon Marshall.
Because Twitter was popping last night and Brandon Marshall — Denver Broncos linebacker — was having none of it. After leading the Broncos with 7 tackles in their beatdown of the Cowboys, Marshall took his Louisville Slugger to social last night — blowing up Twitter Eggs every time somebody sent some shade at bmarshh54, not B Marshall.
Check out this serve and volley game by the Broncos’ linebacker:
@Per_The_Bear: “YOU’RE THE MAIN REASON WE ARE 0-2. GO BACK TO THE JETS NOBODY WANTS YOU HERE ANYMORE.”
Marshall: So I’m the reason we’re trash? Nah.
And then there’s this exchange with @aktane:
“LMAO YOU’RE GARBAGE @BMARSHH54… STOP DROPPING ELI’S PASSES BRO.
Marshall: Matter of fact. Imma come see you! Where you at?
* ON MY COUCH WATCHING YOU DROP ELI’S PASSES.
Marshall: Meet me in the parking lot after the game chump!
And then there’s this exchange with internet tough-guy — and football aficionado @rileyharris2730:
* HIGH POINT THE FOOTBALL YOU F***
Marshall: Come say that to my face!
Eggs, how hard is it to find the right Brandon Marshall? He’s got his JERSEY NUMBER in his Twitter handle. The only thing easier would be if he went by @B-MARSHALL-BRONCOS-LB and even then some of you idiots would be firing off Tweets at the wrong guy.
That’s not to say that things were easy on Brandon Marshall, Giants receiver, either. But at least some of that is fair game. Some of that comes with the territory of catching only 2 passes on 9 targets in two weeks — especially after that brutal drop last night. But even then, Tweets like this one, that came LAST WEEK after the Giants rolled over against the Cowboys, was pretty savage:
HAS @BMARSHALL BEEN FOUND? I WAS REALLY WORRIED LAST NIGHT. #AMBER ALERT
Oh they found Brandon Marshall. The wrong Brandon Marshall. And then they got lit up like Christmas trees. So memo to the Eggs. If you’re gonna troll, troll the right guy.
