After a heartbreaking loss against the Green Bay Packers, the Miami Dolphins are doing their best to move past that incident and prepare themselves for their next game on the road against the Chicago Bears, and they will most likely be facing their biggest challenge yet at the wide receiver position in Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffrey.
The former Miami Dolphin, Marshall, is known for being an extremely physical wide receiver who uses his size to create mismatches against the defense, and current Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace has a lot of respect for Marshall's play style.
“That’s my guy. I’ve got a lot of love for B. Marshall." Wallace said. "He’s a great player, I’m excited about it."
Unfortunately, while Wallace has a lot of respect for Marshall, he recently said that he wouldn't be much help in preparing the defense for him and Jeffrey.
“I don’t really go against our defense too much at this point in the season. It’s going to be more of our scout team guys giving them a look. Just have to play big and be what you are. They’re going against some of the biggest wide receivers in the entire league, so it’s going to be hard to simulate that size. Wallace said. "Our guys have to play as big as they can this week. Our wide receivers on the scout team have to give them the best look possible. It’s going to be hard. Like I said, it’s two of the biggest guys in the league and two of the best guys in the league, so it’s going to be hard.”
Wallace has been able to get more physical this season thanks to some muscle he added to his frame in the offseason, but the size that Marshall and Jeffrey boast cannot be copied by the current corps on the Dolphins, so they will need to just do their best to be as physical as possible in practice this week.
