Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall highly critical of offense after loss to Packers

David Banks

Brandon Marshall reacted emotionally with tears, anger and heavy criticism of the offense following the Bears' loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Following Chicago's loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, wide receiver Brandon Marshall vented the frustration that most everyone involved in the Bears organization is feeling during this late-season collapse.

"There's no excuse. We have two games left. There's still hope. But at the same time, we need to be held accountable."

According to Michael C. Wright of ESPN Chicago, Marshall believes that accountability should cost jobs lost.

"It's the same thing every single game," Marshall said. "We need to be held accountable. What I've got to do is I've got to try my best to keep it together and not let this affect me because it's starting to affect me more than it should."

Marshall caught six passes for 56 yards and one touchdown on Sunday, his ninth touchdown of the season. He was beyond 1,300 yards for the season following Sunday's performance as well. But Marshall has been the lone bright spot for the Bears over the latter half of the season. After starting 7-1, Chicago has dropped five of its last six games to drop to 8-6, on the outside looking in at the playoff picture.

The remainder of the season looks to only hold disappointment for the collapsing Bears, and Marshall knows he can only focus on his own performance.

"I love this game. I'm very passionate about his game, and right now it's affecting me way too much."

Marshall stopped briefly to fight back tears.

"I'm trying my all to do my job, so that's it," he said.

The Bears finish up the season with road games against the Arizona Cardinals and the Detroit Lions.
