A daily Dolphins observer is becoming increasingly skeptical about WR Brandon Marshall's chances of producing at the same level he did with the Broncos. Marshall had his ups and downs in training camp after sitting out OTAs as he recovered from hip surgery. Marshall, who has had at least 101 catches for 1,120 yards in each of the past three seasons, dropped two passes in the team's preseason opener and had three drops in the practice two days after that game. He rebounded with four catches for 65 yards in his second preseason outing, but there are some who say the team won't throw enough for Marshall to post the gaudy stats he compiled during his time in Denver. RBs Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams are each going to get a decent share of touches, the Dolphins seem to believe WR Brian Hartline is ready to take a big step and there is talk of targeting TE Anthony Fasano more often.
