Bowles needs to have a long talk with him Dan Leberfeld

East Rutherford – Brandon Marshall is a rare talent; one of the most talented receivers of the modern era.

But as he stated on his own Twitter page – “Keep the main thing the main thing.”

He’s trying to juggle too many balls right now.

Whether it’s being a television personality on Showtime, being a social activist jumping into the Colin Kaepernick situation on several occasions (he was the only Jets’ offensive starter to not run out with a flag today), running a foundation (which is important) or fighting with Chicago Sun-Times writer Brad Biggs on Twitter last week, the guy probably has too much going on.

And football is a sport that requires a tremendous amount of focus.

As Bill Belichick loves to say, “Do your job.”

Jets coach Todd Bowles needs to have a long talk with his star receiver, who had a bad drop late in Sunday’s game, about focusing 100 percent of his mind on football.

Marshall is an enormous talent, but there is probably too much multi-tasking going on in his world right now.

He needs to take his own advice and “Keep the main thing the main thing.”
