Josh McDaniels' tough love apparently has done the trick. Denver Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall, whose temper tantrum at training camp drew a nine-day suspension, is back to being his Pro Bowl self.
In the last two weeks, Marshall, showing his head is clear and his hip is healed, has caught two big touchdown passes to help the unbeaten Broncos defeat Dallas and New England, respectively.
After his 51-yard TD against the Cowboys, in which Marshall avoided a half-dozen tacklers while zigzagging to the end zone, he broke down in tears and hugged McDaniels on the sideline and then again at the post-game podium.
