Brandon Marshall isn’t sorry he yelled. He isn’t sorry about anything he said, either. But the Chicago Bears wide receiver is sorry that people outside the locker room doors heard what he had to say after Sunday’s 27-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
Things turned tense in the Chicago locker room after the team fell to 0-3 at home on the season, as Marshall was heard yelling and venting his frustration. The Bears have since downplayed the incident, explaining they are upset with the results, not each other, and Marshall echoed that sentiment Tuesday on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL.”
“Absolutely my voice was heard,” Marshall said, per the Chicago Tribune’s Rich Campbell. “The only thing I regret is that the door wasn’t closed. I wouldn’t change any of my reactions because they came from my heart and that’s how I felt and that’s how I still feel. I think we have all the coaches we need. I think we have all the players that we need to get the job done. And 3-4 is unacceptable, but we have everything that we need to turn this ship right now.”
Marshall added that he’s confident the Bears, who have dropped three of their last four games, can rebound because they already have the pieces in place to do so.
“The problem right now is that we are not performing to our ability,” he said. “We just need to gel, we need to continue to come together, but the time is now. We are halfway through the season, and if any locker room has the guys to get it done, we do. We can get this thing turned around.”
The New England Patriots will be the judge of whether that’s true or not, as the Bears visit Gillette Stadium this Sunday.
