After a week off, I’m back and ready to dive right in. I got this great interview in my inbox while I was gone. Brian Dawkins went on ESPN Radio’s The Herd to talk about Brandon Marshall and some of the toughest guys he’s faced in the NFL. Entering his 15th season, Dawkins can dish on almost anything.
He said this about some of the toughest guys he’s had to face during his career:
“First of all, on my team, messing around with Westbrook in practice, trying to cover him in 7-on-7 drills and stuff – one of the hardest dudes to cover. Even when he lined up at receiver he was one of those guys that was very tough to cover. Over the years, trying to cover Terrell..T.O. Coming off the line of scrimmage, he used that strength coming off the ball. You may get your hands on him, and sometimes he’ll let you get your hands on him. It’s the same thing with Brandon – he’ll let you get your hands on him, but he’ll use that against you. So he’ll grab you and throw you to the side because the guy is so big. So those two, and then put Brandon in that category of physical guys that’s been tough over the years.”
