OK Dolfans, you can officially go buy your jerseys.
I’ve been told that Brandon Marshall will officially be wearing #19 for the Miami Dolphins this season, hopefully erasing the recent memory of another guy who wore that same number, oh, just last season.
Instead of the #15 he wore in Denver (which is taken by fellow reveiver Davone Bess), Marshall’s been sporting 19 ever since OTA’s began last month, albeit on the sideline recovering from minor hip surgery.
Personally, I would have loved seeing him in 85, but I’m old school like that. I tend to think numbers 11-19 should be reserved for punters and quarterbacks.
But whether you like it or not, Marshall has a chance to bring glory to #19, something Ted Ginn Jr. could never do, and I can live with that. I’m just crossing my fingers in the hope that #19 isn’t cursed.
