Brandon Marshall’s role in the public eye intensified when he was stabbed by his wife in the offseason (he denied that it happened) and, later, when he admitted that he suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder.

And while there was very little question that Marshall had been stabbed by somebody (it was only allegedly caused by his wife), Marshall made the excuse that his cuts had been caused when he slipped on a vase.

But now the South Florida Times has the intricate details of what police found when they were called to the Marshall household in April.

Police found a “large pool of blood” in the foyer of the house before discovering other blood trails throughout the residence. Marshall had been slashed on his wrists and his abdomen, while his wife, Michi-Nogami Marshall, had a bruise on her left check. And, maybe most disturbing, police found a 13-inch bloody knife next to a bloody magazine clip from a gun.

It is a rather unsettling scene -- that surely wasn’t the result of a broken vase -- but hopefully, activities like this are in the past for Marshall and his wife.

More details about the Brandon Marshall stabbing

My mistake I was under the impression that he was diagnosed by a clinician and not just using it as an excuse as I have not followed his entire criminal history. I was also by no means trying to advocate he be let off the hook I just found the article intrguing and had given him the benefit of doubt, as by the sounds of it he displayed a typical self-harming behavior, which BPD suffers often use to manipulate their partner in an attempt to not be abanondoned by them as this is their largest worry. BPD is a very serious and pervasive disorder that medication alone will never fix and it usually requires intense reversal of the person's maladapted thought processes, which is extremely difficult not only for the clinician, but for the patient as well. I find it appaling that someone would malinger to escape punishment. It is clear many in this discussion seem to have a negative stigma toward the field of psychology, but that is for another discussion. I myself am just starting in the field and am not making much, but I assure you that my only goal is to help people. I just ask that you empathize with those who are really suffering, but can understand your frustrations if Marshall is just malingering.

jsbe2121, forgive me, but I am an old man. I was raised during a time were irritable people were not afforded the excuses given to them today. There wasn't a magical regimen of expensive medicine, and even more expensive people that do exactly nothing to help the situation but instead prescribing expensive medications and enjoying a chuckle while playing referral roulette amongst their peers. I have only enjoyed the modern era of ill qualified therapists shoving daddy and mommy issues down the throats of the gullible and vulnerable. So excuse me if I feel that a stern "buck up little camper" and a "you are a rich guy with the responsibility of a child" maybe peppered with "millions would trade places with you, you whining little girl" would do far more good than an internet psychologist, and his claims to know the inner workings of Brandon Marshall's mind without ever having met or spoken to the man.

Borderline Personality Disorder? Seriously?

It was called moody and whiny when men were men.

As someone who is currently working in the field of psychology and having studied the various personality disorders I think that your comment Marion S Knight is a rather insensitive one. I urge you to read up more on the disorder as it should not be taken lightly and is very difficult and distressing for the person dealing with it. Those suffering with BPD have a VERY difficult time maintaining stable interpersonal relationsships and I could understand, from what I have read here that this may have been a manifestation of Marshall's BPD causing extreme thinking possibly about his marriage. The DSM-IV-TR lists this diagnostic criteria for BPD, but I do urge you to research further as it is very difficult to treat and manage.

The  fourth edition, DSM IV-TR, a widely used manual for diagnosing , defines borderline personality disorder (in Axis II ) as:<sup id="cite_ref-DSM-IV-TR_1-3&quo
t; class="reference"></sup><sup id="cite_ref-criteria_14-1&quo
t; class="reference"></sup>

<dl><dd>A pervasive pattern of instability of ,  and , as well as marked , beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by five (or more) of the following:</dd></dl><

  1. Frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment. Note: Do not include suicidal or self-injuring behavior covered in Criterion 5
  2. A pattern of unstable and intense  characterized by alternating between extremes of .
  3.  disturbance: markedly and persistently unstable  or .
  4.  in at least two areas that are potentially self-damaging (e.g., ,, , , ). Note: Do not include suicidal or self-injuring behavior covered in Criterion 5
  5. Recurrent , gestures, threats or  such as cutting, interfering with the healing of scars (excoriation) or picking at oneself.
  6.  instability due to a marked reactivity of  (e.g., intense episodic , irritability or  usually lasting a few hours and only rarely more than a few days).

It is a requirement of DSM-IV that a diagnosis of any specific personality disorder also satisfies a set of .


As a medical care provider not working in the mental health field I have noticed tha most metal health care workers use a lot of big words and most appear as crazy, quirky, and disturbes as their so called patients!!
 Just saying!!

Every murdere, serial killer, rapist, child abuser, kidnapper, etc, etc "claims" they have BPD. It is a bogus ecxcuse!!  No ne normal does these types of things. It is a given that they are sick individuals. That does not give them a free pass. Face up to what you do!!!!!!!!!

jsbe2121,  Thank you for the break down of BPD.  Unfortunately you missed the fact that BRANDON MARSHALL ADMITTED he had BPD.  We have not seen a doctor's or psychiatrist's diagnosis.

Do you think it was possible Marshall just said he had that as an excuse???  Hmmmm  Brandon's agent googles and finds something they can blame for the ridiculous behavior and later they can say after treatment Brandon is better and no longer suffers from BPD.

I am sure it is hard for people that truly have BPD but I am not ready to believe Mr. Marshall just on his word.

Yes in fact he is retarded. Read any of the "Eye on Football" offerings, a Gragg Doyel or Mike Freeman opinion feat and you will find a honed expertise of copy and pasting other writer's work, and a knack for making it trivial biased nonsense peppered with stupid when their comments are added.
