Football is an emotional game. For Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall, it’s especially emotional. You can imagine where his emotions were after the Bears dropped their fourth straight game at home dating back to last season to go 3-4 on the season and winless at home. Word from Bears beat reporters is that the Bears locker room was very emotional after the 27-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
and another account from Bear Report…
and from Peggy Kusinski…
and from Peggy’s Facebook page:
"#Bears Brandon Marshall admits he was very frustrated after the game, going off in the locker room, but he says everyone should be frustrated 3-4 & unacceptable. unacceptable, period. Inconsistent offense leads to 3rd loss at home and that is unacceptable. Marshall was NOT going off on any one teammate who may have been playing peacemaker, he was letting his frustrations out in the locker room making sure the team understands that “3-4 is unacceptable”. If you’ve been in a locker room you understand those emotions. Tune into Post Game reaction #NBC5News 5p & tonight on #NBC5SS"
The word of the day is unacceptable.
Hey Kyle, give em something to cheer about. These are the same fans who packed the Georgia Dome last week.
It sounds to me like the Bears locker room is at the tipping point. The next couple of games will determine whether or not this team goes in the tank or rallies and pulls together. It puts into question the leadership on this team all the way up to Marc Trestman. Someone else who was calling out Trestman’s leadership was former Bears special teams ace Blake Costanzo:
The Bears are teetering on the precipice of a 6-10 season if they don’t get their act together. The infighting and finger pointing put them at risk for a full fledged free fall. I don’t want to be around when they go “thud.”
What do you think? Can the Bears pull out of their funk and rally or does this team go into the tank?
