Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman said at a press conference Monday that he doesn't see evidence of a rift between quarterback Jay Cutler and wide receiver Brandon Marshall "at all."
Multiple reporters said that screaming and yelling could be heard from the Bears' locker room after their 27-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, with Marshall reportedly calling out Cutler, offensive lineman Kyle Long criticizing the team's fans and several players needing to be pulled apart from each other.
Cutler completed 21 of his 34 pass attempts on Sunday but had just 190 yards. His 5.6 yards per attempt was his second-worst figure of the season and his worst in a loss.
Marshall, who had six catches for 48 yards against Miami, is on pace to have just under 800 receiving yards this season, which would be his lowest total in three seasons in Chicago and the second-lowest total of his career.
After the game, former Chicago linebacker Blake Costanzo criticized Trestman on Twitter for making the Bears "soft." In response to questions about his demeanor and style on Monday, Trestman said he "tries to be as consistent as I can" with the team.
The loss to Miami was Chicago's third in its past four games and dropped the Bears to 0-3 in home games this season.
Chicago is now 3-4 overall this season and in third place in the NFC North. The team plays at the New England Patriots this Sunday.
