There is no rift between Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and wide receiver Brandon Marshall — at least not according to Marshall.
The Bears’ locker room was not a fun place to be Sunday afternoon following the team’s loss to the Miami Dolphins. According to reports, Bears players had it out in the locker room, with Marshall reportedly criticizing Cutler. After the game, Marshall repeatedly labeled Chicago’s offensive performance “unacceptable.”
However, things are all good between the two players, who go back a long way, Marshall said Wednesday.
“I have a really nice condo. And guess what? Jay Cutler built that condo,” Marshall said on the NFL Network, via ProFootballTalk.com. “We’re great. We’re great. You know, we’re like brothers. I think coach Trestman said it the best. But if I have a problem with Jay Cutler, I’m going to go to Jay Cutler. If Jay Cutler has a problem with me, he’s going to come to me. We have that type of relationship.”
The Bears are at a critical part of their season. The home loss to the Dolphins — already their third of the season — dropped Chicago to 3-4 overall. The Bears sit two games back of first-place Green Bay and Detroit and have to go to Foxboro on Sunday to take on the 5-2 New England Patriots.
