The Chicago Bears lost an ugly one to the Miami Dolphins at Soldier Field on Sunday, 27-13.
Per Jeremy Stoltz of BearReport.com, it got even uglier when the team returned to their locker room after the game:
Ugly scene in #bears locker room right after game. Lots of yelling, players pulled out of room

The beginnings of Sunday's locker room fireworks could possibly be traced to WR Brandon Marshall's visible frustration at the end of Sunday's contest:
According to Dan Bernstein of CBSChicago.com, Marshall was in the middle of all of the postgame commotion:
In a surprise to nobody, I'm told it was Marshall in the middle of the postgame locker room scene. #Bears — Dan Bernstein (@dan_bernstein) October 19, 2014
NBCChicago.com's Peggy Kusinski reportedly heard this when standing outside of the locker room doors:
As reported by ESPN Chicago's Jeff Dickerson, the players were already in a foul mood after being booed by their home fans at halftime:
Players were unhappy being booed by home fans coming off the field at halftime. — Jeff Dickerson (@ESPNChiBears) October 19, 2014
Regardless of what exactly set off this particular fracas, ESPN's Michael C. Wright pointed out a possible rift in communication between coach Marc Trestman and his veteran leadership:
Wow. Cutler said the Bears had only two runs called. Trestman said differently earlier. — Michael C. Wright (@mikecwright) October 19, 2014
Trestman's first-half game plan was bashed viciously on social media for being extremely one-dimension. The Bears' pass-happy attack faltered en route to a 14-0 halftime deficit they would never recover from.
