Marshall: Jets Are A First Class Organization

New, comments

We know that, but it's good to see the players sharing that perception

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Over the last few years the Jets have had the outside perception that they were a circus. How true that was I really don't know, but the 2015 season has a different feel. Change is good, change is refreshing and any change is followed by a Honeymoon period. The Jets are squarely in that period at the moment under Todd Bowles and Mike Maccagnan, and you know what? It feels pretty good.

Brandon Marshall, a receiver on course to break several Jets single season records was just one of the moves that Maccagnan made to make the Jets relevant, and although the big-bodied wide receiver had some pre-conceptions about the Jets, he couldn't be happier with what he's discovered since coming over from the Bears

"It's top to bottom. I mean, everyone in the whole building does an amazing job. I had some pre-perceptions when I first came in. But I've got to tell you, this is a first-class organization, and everyone does a great job."

"The New York media, you guys do a great job of talking about all kinds of stuff, I guess," he said. "There's so much coverage, so you'd think that it would be a circus."

Marshall has quickly become one of the most popular Jets players, mainly because he's produced. Jets fans will love you as long as you lay it all out there on the field, and I think Marshall has shown a willingness to do that, while battling through a number of nagging injuries.

So far in 2015 Marshall has recorded 93 receptions for 1261 yards and 11 touchdowns. With one more reception, Marshall will break Al Toon's 1988 record for receptions in a single season by a Jets receiver. If Marshall can record another 217 yards receiving, he will break Don Maynards 1967 record, all be it in a 16 game schedule as opposed to a 14 game one. Marshall will need 4 more TD's to break another Maynard record, this time from 1965.

The Jets love Marshall and Marshall loves the Jets, every single member of the organization

"Everything from our janitors, Jose does a great job. I mean, I'm honest. Like you go to the bathroom, and then two seconds later, he's right in there. I'm being honest."
