Hey Cassius Marsh, Shut Your Mouth
Just try to rush the passer. Key word is TRY.
Unless you live under a rock, NFL fans across the nation have seen Cassius Marshes recent comments on the 2 Bears 1 Cave podcast where he expressed his displeasure of playing for the Patriots. To that I say shut your God damn mouth.
On episode 89 of 2 Bears 1 Cave, Marsh said “They don’t, you don’t have like — you don’t have a lunch, period. You get there and you have to make time to eat in between meetings. And they’re like 5-10 minute periods where I would literally go scoop food and put in in a cup and like just crush it real quick before I got to the next meeting. It’s just like there’s no … no B.S. There’s no fun.”
Let me just do a quick Google search, one second. The Patriots have won six Super Bowls and Marsh has 14 sacks since 2014. Just felt like I would throw that out there for no reason at all.
Through his dismal seven year career, Marsh has played for not one, not two, but SEVEN NFL teams since 2014. If you want to do the math on that, it’s 2 sacks per season.
It seems like it didn’t work out with the Seahawks. He couldn’t make it work on the Patriots. Didn’t perform for the 49ers. Had a short lived second stint in Seattle. Went through the revolving door in Arizona and was passed around in 2020 by the Colts, Jaguars, and Steelers.
Look, many Patriots fans may not remember this whiny asshole but I don’t understand how you could forget Cassius. While in New England, Marsh forced one fumble and recorded three tackles, yikes.
Marsh claims that he is a top five most hated player in Patriots history but Pats Twitter had different thoughts of the former pass rusher. Many fans were befuddled on the comments because they have no clue who he is.
While Marsh thinks that he was dropped from the Patriots roster because he was outspoken, it probably had something to do with his temper tantrum he threw when the Patriots were playing against Oakland in Mexico City.
During halftime of the contest when New England held a 17-0 lead, Marsh went on a tirade that included him throwing a Gatorade jug. Why you may ask? It was because Marsh hadn’t seen the field yet. New England won the game 33-8 and two days later, Marsh was back on the free agent market, a familiar place for the mediocre pass rusher.
Another factor in New England dumping Marsh was his inability to adapt and his lack of versatility. When he was cut back in 2017, he said that “They asked me to do a bunch of stuff that I had never done: covering running backs and receivers and basically almost never rushing the passer, which is what I did in playing defensive line.”
I can understand being out of your element and having to try new schemes but you’re not some elite pass rusher like Khalil Mack or Chandler Jones. Marsh is an extremely poor mans Chase Winovich when it comes to getting after the quarterback so being a one trick pony won’t keep you on many rosters for very long.
With the dust somewhat settling on his comments, about 95% of NFL fans have dumped all over him and it’s well deserved. Shit, I’m a Vikings fan and hate this dude. Just seems like an extremely arrogant clout chaser.
The 5% that have not yet dumped on Marsh is most likely Pittsburgh Steeler homers who are easily in the top ten of worst sports fans to exist. They’re just delusional and will most likely defend Marsh to the death until Mike Tomlin cuts him before their third preseason game.
All in all, it seems like Marsh will be enjoying his fifteen minutes of fame and his Twitter applause from Patriots haters but when all of that stops, he’ll still be the same below average pass rusher he was when he came out of UCLA in 2014.
