Video: Brandon Marshall Planned a White Glove/Black Panther Touchdown Celebration, Stokley Saved the Penalty
Brandon Marshall isn’t exactly the sharpest crayon in the box. You might remember he hurt his arm in the offseason slipping on a McDonald’s bag … so he says. He’s also been known to celebrate wins by going out and getting DUIs. Maybe that’s why I wasn’t surprised to see that he was about to execute a pre-planned touchdown celebration late in the 4th quarter of the Broncos/Browns game. The Broncos had just scored the go-ahead touchdown and left the Browns little over a minute on the clock to come back. A 15-yard penalty for celebrating the touchdown definitely would have hurt Denver’s chances of keeping Cleveland out of the end zone. Luckily Brandon Stokley was sharp enough to realize the game was too close to mess around with celebrations and convinced Marshall to hold off on his plan. The move paid off. So what would we have seen if Stokley never stopped him? Marshall explained after the game:
Just like Brandon Marshall … always using his head and putting the team first. Why am I not surprised? I can’t imagine what his teammates would have done if he had cost them 15 yards in that close of a game. Time and place, Brandon. Time and place.
