Brandon Marshall is a wide receiver who plays in the NFL for the Chicago Bears. He played during MNF and left fantasy football fans disappointed after a poor performance.

Brandon Marshall is a linebacker who plays in the NFL for the Denver Broncos. He played on Sunday afternoon against the Seattle Seahawks and sat at home taking abuse during MNF because of his namesake's struggles.

Bitter fans looking to vent their anger Monday night took to Twitter to find the source of their frustration and unfortunately for the Broncos' Marshall he took the brunt of the blame.

Confusion reigns

Some of the tweets directed at the Broncos man read as follows:

"@BMarshh54 You'll never be as good as jerry rice man... Your a bum," - A Tweet to which the linebacker simply replied with a emoticon of a face crying with laughter.

"@BMarshh54 wow... you care more about getting re-injured than helping out people's fantasy teams. You are so selfish."

Others were simply dumfounded as to how the Chicago Bears' star receiver could be simultaneously on the field against the New York Jets and tweeting at the same time:

"@BMarsh54 how the hell are you tweeting right now?" wrote one fan. The Broncos' Marshall didn't help the confusion with his response either.

"Tweetin and playing at the same damn time," wrote the 2012 draftee.

And one fan simply refused to believe that there could be another Brandon Marshall at all - leaving the player question his own existence.

Contrasting games

The Chicago Bears' Brandon Marshall did indeed let down fantasy football owners with a injury-hampered performance limiting him to just one catch for six yards as the Bears ran out winners over the Jets.

His Broncos namesake meanwhile might have lost out in the Superbowl-repeat against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday but it was a career day for the Nevada alumni - recording 12 tackles.

After last night's events on social media, the latter must surely be hoping that performances like that can help him move out of the shadows of the Bears wideout.
