Brandon Marshall Reveals the Worst QB He Played with in his 13-Year NFL Career, Citing Skills as the Issue

Brandon Marshall had a 13-year NFL career that spanned six different teams. During that time, he played with a total of 17 different quarterbacks, most notably Jay Cutler during his time with the Denver Broncos and the Chicago Bears. In a recent interview, Marshall described Cutler as the worst quarterback he played with, not because of what Cutler did, but because he felt Cutler didn’t reach his full potential.

Despite this sentiment, Marshall enjoyed success with Cutler in 2012 when he caught a career-high 118 passes and totaled over 1,500 receiving yards. In contrast to his comments about Cutler, Marshall named Ryan Fitzpatrick as the best quarterback he played with. This was due to Fitzpatrick’s leadership and play on the field during the 2015 season when they co-led the NFL in receiving touchdowns.

Cutler’s time with the Chicago Bears was marked by mixed success, including an appearance in the NFC Championship in the 2010 season. However, his tenure in Chicago ultimately fell short of achieving a Super Bowl appearance. No Bears quarterback has thrown for 4,000 yards or 30 touchdown passes in a single season.

Overall, Marshall’s experiences with different quarterbacks and teams shaped his perspective on the league and his own performance as a wide receiver. His career highlights include catching a career-high number of passes and leading the NFL in receiving touchdowns in 2015. Despite some ups and downs along the way, Marshall left behind a lasting legacy as one of the most successful wide receivers in NFL history.
