Bears WR Brandon Marshall Allegedly Calls Out Jay Cutler After Latest Loss


It appears all the losing and the inconsistent play of the Chicago Bears are finally setting wide receiver, Brandon Marshall, off. According to media reports from the locker room, Brandon Marshall was upset at Jay Cutler and others in the aftermath of the team’s 27-14 Week 7 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Soldier Field. Cutler and Marshall have played together for years, going back to their time together with the Denver Broncos.

Marshall was in rare form after the game. Marshall was quoted by saying “We got Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett, Matt Forte, we got a stud offensive line,” Marshall said. “We got a great, great group of guys and this is unacceptable. What did we put up? Fourteen points. Was it 14 points? That’s unacceptable. That’s unacceptable.” Reportedly, Marshall berated kicker Robbie Gould in the team locker room too. For his part, Cutler tried to avoid the controversy. He went 21-34 for 190 yards, with a touchdown, an interception, and one lost fumble on Sunday. Chicago possessed the ball for just 22:38 and couldn’t find a rhythm, though Marshall did haul in six receptions for 48 yards on 10 targets.

The Chicago Bears Are a Mess

Not even the Bears fateful were safe from the frustration of the players. Offensive Lineman Kyle Long was so pissed at the loss, he blamed the Chicago fans for booing and not making enough crowd noise on third down. The Bears are currently 3-4 including a big loss to the Green Bay Packers 38-17 during Week 4. Cutler has thrown 14 touchdowns, seven interceptions, and has lost eight fumbles. Basically, he is a turnover waiting to happen. Our take is that Jay Cutler is the definition of inconsistency and reminds us more of Jeff George than an elite play caller and passer. It’s high time he finally gets it together and leads his team to victories.

Apparently, head coach Marc Trestman, himself the subject of criticism too, is losing control of the team. The Bears’ struggles could get worse very quickly. Week 8 offers an intense challenge on the road against the mighty New England Patriots. The Patriots are consistently one of the best prepared, winning franchises in the whole league.
