Q)What happened on Bashaud Breeland’s takeaway?
Marshall: He stripped me. I saw the linebacker coming and kind of took my eye off the guy that was on me. He already had both his hands on it. I guess I’ve got to get in the weight room. I’m disappointed in myself. I pride myself on my strength and that wasn’t very strong, but it’s football, it happens. It sucks, but at the same time you’ve just got to continue to punch through adversity.
Q)What happened on your 18-yard touchdown?
Marshall: [Ryan Fitzpatrick] converted my route. I think he had heat in his face and just threw it up and gave me a chance. I made the play.
Q)What are your thoughts on Chris Ivory’s performance?
Marshall: There were a couple guys that laughed at me when I said Ivory’s the best. He is and he proved it again today. Eight-man box, nine-man box, they came out and said, ‘We don’t care about the wide-receivers, we’re going to stop the run.’ Ivory, again, came out and put up over 140 yards. He’s amazing and he’s the best in the league.
Q)Eric Decker in the red zone . . .
Marshall: Deck prides himself on the red zone since he’s been in the NFL. He’s always come up big in the red zone. We need him to do that. If they’re going to take away Ivory and other people, then Deck’s going to eat them up. I’m just so glad that we have a guy like that on the other side.
Q)What are your thoughts on the New England game?
Marshall: It’s just another game, that’s how we have to approach it. I went back and watched LeBron James’ interview after his first championship. One of the things he talked about was how his first year in Miami he was trying to be something he wasn’t. And when he did that he had a terrible year. It’s the same thing for anybody or any team in any sport. You’ve got to stick to your game plan. For us it’s another game.
