Bears' Brandon Marshall on Jay Cutler: 'We're like brothers'

Wednesday October 22nd, 2014

Chicago Bears wide receiver said Tuesday that he and quarterback Jay Cutler are "like brothers," according to the Chicago Sun-Times

After the Bears lost 27-14 at home to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, multiple reporters said that screaming and yelling could be heard from Chicago's locker room, with Marshall reportedly calling out Cutler, who threw his seventh interception of the season during the game.

MMQB: Right now, Peyton is better than ever

On Monday, Bears coach Marc Trestman said he doesn't see evidence of any rift between the two players "at all."

"If I have a problem with Jay Cutler, I’m gonna go to Jay Cutler. If Jay Cutler has a problem with me, he’s gonna come to me.
We have that type of relationship," said Marshall

The Bears dropped to 3-4 on the season after the loss to Miami and are winless at home. Marshall called the record "unacceptable," but said his team has everything it needs to turn things around.

Marshall also said the only thing he regrets about the locker room outburst was that reporters were around to hear it. 

"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," he said.

Chicago plays the Patriots (5-2) in New England on Sunday.
