Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall happy Seahawks' corners will play

Jonathan Daniel

Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall is looking forward to the challenge of going up against Seahawks cornerbacks Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman, who will be playing Sunday despite alleged use of performance enhancing drugs.

Seattle Seahawks cornerbacks Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman have not yet been suspended by the NFL for their alleged use of performance enhancing drugs, but that does not bother Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall one bit. In fact, Marshall is excited that Browner and Sherman will be in the lineup (via The News Tribune):

"I love their attitude and approach to the game," Marshall said. "I think any successful professional athlete has to have a confidence about themselves and a swagger, and those guys have it.

"I'm impressed about their swagger, and they present some challenges just because of that. I'm excited about the matchup and getting this opportunity to compete against them."

The 6-foot-4 Browner and 6-foot-3 Sherman are sure to try and be extra physical with the 6-foot-5 Marshall, who has been dynamite in his first season in Chicago. Marshall has racked up 81 catches for 1,017 yards and eight touchdowns this season. The next closest Bear is Earl Bennett with 22 catches for 238 yards, so if Marshall gets taken away, the Bears could be in some trouble.

Despite struggling last week against the Miami Dolphins, Seattle still boasts the third-best passing defense in the NFL, giving up just 200.7 yards per game. Chicago has the worst passing offense in the league, putting up 177.2 yards per game.
