Morning take: Brandon Marshall guarantee?

10/28/2011

Here are the most interesting stories Saturday morning in the AFC East:

  • Did receiver Brandon Marshall, via Twitter, guarantee the winless Miami Dolphins (0-6) will beat the New York Giants (4-2)?

Morning take: Marshall says he doesn't want any excuses from the media "when" Miami wins. I don't know if giving the Giants bulletin-board material is a good idea.

  • In more Dolphins news, Miami owner Stephen Ross denies an NFL.com report that he's reached out to representatives of former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher.

Morning take: There have been several similar reports, and Miami has denied all of it. According to Ross' statement, he wants Tony Sparano to win and remain the Dolphins' head coach.

  • Will New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady be too much for the Pittsburgh Steelers' defense?

Morning take: History suggests Brady has Pittsburgh's number. I think Pittsburgh's best chance is for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to match Brady's production and try to pull out a close game.

Morning take: Fitzpatrick is officially the face of Buffalo's franchise. He's a good fit and leader for the Bills. Now, Fitzpatrick has to prove he's the long-term solution.
