08:13 AM ET 10.26 | A few years ago, not many would have predicted such success for current Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall. [Marshall] goes down -- for now -- as a plus-plus-plus. Maybe four pluses. The big pass-catcher is one of those rarest of sporting deals: all good. ... Remember when he came to town last spring after the Bears traded two third-round draft picks to snatch him from the Dolphins? Marshall, 28, has held it together since coming to Chicago and has become a star, without which the Bears??? offense could barely function. ... He is like a recovering addict in that every day is a struggle for him, a day that he must think about and internalize goals that so far transcend football as to make the game seem almost meaningless. And he is doing it.

I feel sorry for this guy. He's been through so much, he really needed to punch that woman in New York.

Were they smokin' somethin' when they wrote this, and thought it was profound, or were they drinkin' and rolling on the floor because they knew it was total BS?

Marshall leaving troubles behind; did he leave his wife and her knife behind in Miami?

Look at the list of troubles he reportedly left behind. He has Borderline Personality Disorder. Probably just a matter of time before the next major arrest.

Brandon's problems usually start getting serious during the offseason. I hope he's turned things around, but I wouldn't start celebrating just yet Chicago.

Wait until he makes it through an offseason without any problems before you start cheering. That's when a lot of his 'issues' happen. I hope he's turned it around, but he never seems too far from trouble.

This story is like the vote-of-confidence thing; probably the kiss of death.
