Morning take: Marshall is Pro Bowl MVP

Here are the most interesting stories Monday morning in the AFC East:

  • Miami Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall won the Pro Bowl MVP with 176 receiving yards and four touchdowns.

Morning take: Although the Pro Bowl is skewed toward offense, it’s hard to overlook that kind of performance. It’s a glimpse of what he can do when he has Pro Bowl-level quarterbacks throwing the football.

  • Is too much being made out of Tom Brady's "party" comment?

Morning take: Brady thanked the fans for the great turnout during the send off and said “hopefully we have a lot more people at our party next weekend." I don’t see that as a guarantee? But people are taking it as such.

  • Former New York Jets running back and Hall of Fame candidate Curtis Martin says the Jets should pursue Peyton Manning.

Morning take: Add Martin to the list of people who think the Jets try to upgrade at quarterback. Manning is expected to be released and available in March.

Morning take: I remember watching the Super Bowl every year as a child, and this was one that really stood out. This was the first of four attempts by Buffalo and by far the closest the Bills would get to winning.
